    Have you tried emailing Eric? They are always busy so you need to give them chance to reply.

    The only problem I've had with them is my own impatience.

    I had a good dialogue w/ them when I ordered. I've waited the 30 days it says in the order receipt, I emailed them a few days after the 30 day mark just to make sure everything was going okay, I still haven't heard anything and now it's been two weeks past the time I should've received it. i've emailed both directly to the email address in which the dialogue was contained at ordering, and I've submitted email thru their contact format on their website. Nothing...

    Strange.

    It does say 30 business days on the website so that's about 6 weeks, plus then delivery times. The longest I had to wait was 9 weeks but it didn't bother me as I'd had good dealings with them before.

    This is my first order and normally I wouldn't sweat it but I'm moving at the end of the week and a move always complicates shipping. I don't want to wait another fortnight on account of that.

    I ordered mine on the 2nd May, I too have mailed with no reply. Sounds like I just need to sit it out

    My Toollet took about two weeks from ordering to delivery, but that's presumably because they had some stock rather than made to order, love it!

    My problem has been solved! It's another case of USPS fail. I don't want USPS to go away, but they're not doing themselves any favors by having such a poor service record. I've never had a problem with UPS and FedEx...

    Anyhoo, I'll have a shield soon and I'll post it's glory when I get my grubby hands on it!

    I hadn't seen any loadouts with a Victorinox Workchamp so it was a bit hit and miss when I was ordering from Skinthsolutions. Thought I would share my findings for others.

    S Shield (for size comparison) & M Shield:

    The M Shield fits the Workchamp and either a mini Bic or AAA flashlight perfectly. Skinthsolutions website states an XL Shield for 111mm Vics, but I found with a minimal loadout the one I purchased flopped around to much. The two button snaps were also hard to close because of the odd shape and movement of the contents. When I stuffed it full (Workchamp, AA flashlight, full size Bic, bottle opener, etc) it worked well.

    P2MT:

    The P2MT fits the Workchamp and AA flashlight perfectly. It holds the knife and light snug enough to throw in a backpack, but loose enough to remove easily.

    Thanks for the post. Really nice setup and awesome sheath for the esee. I own no fixed, which fits in the "molle" stripes. I think it's a must have.

    But you're a cheater, you reduced your bits to one rack ;-).

    That the esee sheath fit, was a gamble! :p I've looked for a fixed sheath with a clip to fit behind those strips, but its nowhere to be found.

    Oh, and yea, i reduced my bits...until some way of carrying them more convenitently strikes me :D

    Love that ESEE on the front. I bet Fairly's Ti Backpacker would fit in there. Great idea! Now I need another Skinth too. I was planning out what to get next this afternoon and thought I had it narrowed down, but now I gotta rethink. Would the Backpacker fit inside any of them?
    Also, I was wondering if anyone out there owns both a M-Shield and a large K&M Match Safe? If so would you let me know how one fits the other? Thanks.

    My L-Shield, whats in it changed a little since i got it, so lets doe some new pics..

    (The ml bit extension is held by a small magnet to the Side of the wave to preventie it from falling out of the bottom, bit kit has piece of inner paracord string artached for energency and rides in the front pocket) Also 2 small tiewraps in there. These are frequently used to help fixing things)

    Just got a P1 a few weeks ago. Some pics to give an idea of what it can fit.

    Skeletool fits nicely in the main pocket with the mini Bic sitting in the bottom of the rear pocket. Vic Compact slides in and out of the elastic easily. The E12 is difficult to get in and out of the elastic but once it's in there it doesn't need to be removed to be used.
