I showed in previous posts that I carry my EDC items in an ankle holster. This is due to my works dress code and my choice of clothing. Problem is that the gun holster I have been using is getting worn after a few years of use and I have not been able to find a replacement nor anything that I could modify to meet my demands.In order the ankle rig to be perfect, it needed these things. 1. Padding behind the holster/sheath portion. 2. A calf strap that keeps the rig from dropping, turning and helps distribute the weight. 3. The elastic could not sit directly against items like multitools (which like pistols, wear holes in it over time). Not being able to find anything that worked, I decided to make my own. I started with an 8" band of elastic and folded over at 3.5" creating the pocket and making the band 4.5". I then pined, ironed and drew my sewing lines. I then began sewing the Velcro panels, but discovered I sorely underestimated the toughness of the material. My cheap sewing machine died after about 2-3 inches into the project. From then on, it was all hand sewing. I picked up Neoprene iPad sleeve at the Dollar Store and cut out 2 pieces for the padding. Attached the padding and added a calf strap made from 2" elastic nylon and velcro panels. Last would be the sheath. I originally planed on going with a leather and Kydex sheath sewn onto the elastic. I had already cut the leather, but getting this far changed my mind. Not only had this project trashed my sewing machine, but I snapped 4 more needles in my hand before I finished. If I ever lost or upgraded my gear, it was going to be a long pain to modify the rig. Luckily, I came up with the idea of just making a full Kydex sheath to slip into the large pocket. That way I would only have to make a new Kydex sheath if I changed my gear (which is WAY easier). And here it is completed. Stitching is not flawless, but it is sturdy and comfortable. It gets its first full day of work tomorrow.
