    I have several of the Skin pouches from Think Tank I use for wedding and event season, I can def design one that could fit over the TT belt.

    I can easily integrate a credit card sized window that is removable backed with Velcro and a coresponding Velcro patch on the Skinth cover. That way you can tear it off, show it and put it back. I can even put a teather on it.

    On location I usually keep small roll of gaff too. I've been carrying a Skinth OG on location for my modded Skeletool, flash light and the likes. I am considering making one that will hold my Think Tank CF Pocket Rocket too.

    I carry several 3x5 rite in the rain note pads and would love to put one in a multi purpose Skinth, along with my Schrade tac pen, LM surge or Skelly, and a 4sevens quark mini 123.

    I will measure some of my passes
    I have a few floating around.
    Probably half are standard credit card size, a few are a bit bigger and laminated.
    The rest are all varying sizes of massive.

    I would love to get hold of a simple Press pass holder, perfectly sized to display my work ID with a velcroed pocket to hold business cards, a notebook and a Pen, maybe even a little elastic loop to hold a fisher stowaway or bullet.
    A loop on the back to make it easy to safety pin to a shirt would be cool too, I hate my ID blowing around in the wind

    Metropolicity - I will send you a PM with a few ideas if you don't mind ?

    Just placed an order with Eric tonight. He was a pleasure to work with and answered all my questions. Looking forward to my new Skinth OG.

    My Skinth SP arrived today. Very very pleased indeed!

    Happy to recommend Eric's work to folks :D

    Will work out what I'm going to stuff in it and post photos.

    (means my Skinth XL should be here in a day or so. Woohoo!)

    I knew it would be here today! Well not really. I figured as much. Thanks Eric! I love it. It needs a longer light in it because the Quark's clip is too "in the middle". I wish the clip was closer to the end. Oh well, time to buy more lights!

    Well, I crammed it full of stuff. More than I really use daily. But I did & I couldn't believe how light it felt on me belt. I guess the weight is distributed differently and I'm used to the tight little rock of a pouch that I ordered from Victorinox. The 5" or 6" extension (I didn't measure it.) is flexable. The bit in between the County Comm rescue knife and that extension is a 1/4" socket driver. The corkscrew w/ the jeweler's screwdriver in it. A 4" Widgey Bar. The 4Sevens Quark 123r5. The Victorinox SwissTool Spirit Plus Ratchet( on the bit case with the factory extension in it) and "L" wrench. 1/4" & 5/16" nut drivers on the bit case with a#1, #2, & #3 Phillips, 3 Star bits, and 2 Allen bits(all sizes that I regularly use on faucets and water heater burner assembly doors).

    Here is what I used to raise the MT up to where I could easily get it out. Instead of paracord in the bottom(because I found it would be hard to get to to use for anything and wouldn't hold enough to be good for anything). Cosmetic sponges for removing makeup. 4 of them (ovals) folded over on top of each other.

    Recognize anything, nuphoria? Thanks for the tip! Having a #010 o-ring on either side of the bits & extensions, when in the socket of the ratchet, keeps them from slipping!

    Here is Metro's custom belt/molle attachment on the pals webbing of my Plan B...perfect!

    WOOOOOOO Finally.

    I am so happy that it fits your needs, a lot of careful planning and waiting for materials back tracked your order, but I am elated to see you using it to its 'over' full capacity!

    I'm an electrician. The big challenge with us is the amount of tools we carry.Unless you wanted to build a full on tool pouch (which would be awesome by the way) maybe something along the minimalist lines of what we might carry on a service call estimate. At minimum, I'm carrying:
    EVO 3d in otterbox for pictures, notes and estimates
    Nitecore d11.2
    Klein Needle nose pliers
    Klein 6" round shaking #2 flathead

    You really are making some awesome stuff here! Keep it up!

    Waiting for my SkinthXL to arrive, but here's my SkinthSP as it currently stands.

    Arrived on Thursday and I used it work on Friday. Well pleased :D

    Contents:
    • Iphone 4 in Magpul case.
    • Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers tweezers,
    • Boker+ Vox Ti prytool,
    • 4Sevens Preon 2 Ti flashlight
    • Titaner tactical pen.
    • Homemade "pouch" containing two extra long "finger" bandaids and two sterile alcohol wipes in case of minor cuts. ("pouch" was made from copier paper, held together and reinforced with sticky tape; and makes it easier to fish them out of the pocket on the sheath)

    The only "trouble" is that the magpul case catches a little on the fold inside the pouch where the fabric is stitched together - just enough to make it not slide out smoothly. My next SkinthSP will have a pull tab in the phone pocket I think to aid removal. But that's a fault of my phone case with it's grippy ribs on the side, not the sheath!

    I'm planning on getting another Skinth SP and Skinth XL both in black (with orange pentapockets) and belt clips for Work carry, plus probably a Skinth TB for carrying fire making kit on my other rucksack strap :D

    (I've duplicated this post and expanded it into a full review of my Skinth SP for my fellow members of British Blades forum... lets see if I can get them hooked on Skinths as well! :D If you want to read it, it can be found at http://www.britishblades.com/forums/showthread.php?141253-Skinth-SP-pouch-by-Eric-Au-(metropolicity-on-EDCF))

    Nice setup, Dave!

    A nice alternate to the band-aid pouch would be to add an inexpensive Boker Subcom knife to that large middle slot. It's thin cross-section would probably fit great!

    I've got a couple of Subcoms and can confirm that it fits like it was made to be there :D

    If I do carry one instead of the bandaids in there, then I'll put a little lanyard on it with some paracord to make retrieval easy :)
