    Eric dude my bank account is struggling as it is. Do not add to the temptation. You know it would take me about three weeks just to decide what I wanted!

    Now heres a question.. metropolicity .. is there anyway of having a skinth but instead of the side pockets just have elastic a la the LM (shudders) ones? Pockets on the side seem just about .4 of an inch too small on the sides for what I want..

    Gross...I've done it in the past but with a HUGE caveat...no repairs when the elastic gives out (even tho I found the beefiest elastic webbing you can find)

    I dont think that would bother me all that much as the LM one I've had has held up for over 3 years now. Mainly down to the fact its not much weight in the webbing (just awkward items - a gas soldering iron mainly) but yes I agree its gross, the only way to combat it would be to have a wider side pocket if possible?

    Is anyone out there carrying a Surefire E1D Defender in a Skinth?
    I am searching for one, carrying my SwissTool and my E1D and a little more EDC stuff.

    Hi guys,

    My first post here. :)
    I have a Mut shield and I love it!
    I am thinking of buying a smaller shiekd as well.
    I have a question about the S shield, on the Skinth homepage it says that the size of the main compartment is 3,5 x 1 x 1.
    But when I look at photos comparing the S shield against the M shield it looks like they are about the same width, is that correct?

    Untrue, the M-sh is more like 1.5" wide.

    Ok, thanks for the reply.
    That means that the Micro shield and the M shield are both 1,5 inches wide and the S shield is 1 inch wide?
    I'm asking because I have a SAK farmer alox, and while I want my next shield as small as possible, I still want to fit some other items than just the knife... So the S shield 1,5 inches wide would be perfect! Maybe I just have to go for the M shield then...

    The M shield isn't that big. If you scroll up you'll see my post but it BARELY fits the rebar, the Preon P1 and the space pen.

    I have both an M and S Shield. An Alox Farmer should fit in the S with a AAA flashlight and Mini Bic lighter no problem. You could probably also fit a Pico pen, Vic T&T, or similar sized items as well.
    S on the left, M on the right:

    Thanks for the comparison!
    I was thinking about the JB as well. A little bit bulkier, but will hold quite a bit more I guess...
    Decisions, decisions, there is too many options!

    I think I said this with my post but I'm looking to buy one of the shield series, but this time I know what I'd like to put in it
    LM super tool 300, LM micra, LM piranha, LM bit kit, exotac nanostriker xl, fisher cap o matic, a maglite solitaire or a streamlight stylus pro. I was thinking the large or XL model, but I'm not totally sure. Any advice is greatly appreciated

    Ok, then I have ordered an S Shield! :D
    Blue with brass button, really look forward to this one! I think this one will see a lot of carry time being so small and anonymous...

    That would be a very tight fit in the XL, and even then, only if it was stretched over time. You might need a Magnum or one of the Adventure series for that loadout. (Or move the Micra to your keys)
