    I'm looking for a very small waistpack to carry some small EDC items. I am trying to find a waistpack about the size of my leatherman charge sheath, which would be almost perfect for my needs. I would just get another charge sheath, but unfortunately they come with holes in the bottom which make it pretty useless for my needs. Does anyone know of any small waistpacks/sheaths that would work well for carrying small edc items that aren't too much bigger than a LM Charge sheath? Thanks for any help.

    Check out the amphipod products. Also, CountyComm has "multi-purpose carry cases" (MPCC).

    If you want to stay in the realm of multitool sheaths, look at the various sheaths made by Victorinox... David Mack, an e-Bay vendor with a 100% rating, is my favorite source.

    Vic offers leather sheaths in various sizes for their various knives and tools; the newest model sheaths come with clips that rotate so you can not only have more options besides those provided by a belt loop, you can also change the 'angle of attack' (how the sheath rides on your belt or pocket).

    Plus, they are great looking sheaths!

    I'm going to give one of those small Niteize belt pouches a try. Probably will start another thread on the subject, but I'm in a constant state of struggle trying to balance everything I want to carry vs. the reality of not wanting bulging pockets and a batbelt. Perhaps the right belt holster will do the trick. I've tried 2 different flavors of Maxpedition belt packs (M5 and whatever their wallet is called), but both are too bulky for my wants.

    peace

    try Civilian Lab holsters. They are small bags that can either be worn as shoulder holsters or simply as belt holsters. I have an Escape RG and TechRecon LT. All of the bags have both permanent belt loop and snap belt loop built on the back of the bags. I'm kinda surprised that I haven't seen much product reviews for these neat bags. Maybe I will write a quick review for one of them.
    Check out the products at www.civilianlab.com
    I bought mine on www.tadgear.com

    Powernoodle, thanks for the link. Did you end up getting any of the pouches? I'm looking at this onehttp://www.niteize.com/productdetail.php?category_id=27&product_id=129&PHPSESSID=d90904bef03c9172f3f976a01d7306a3.

    I haven't purchased one yet. I've also been intending to look at small digital camera belt holsters that they sell in several different flavors at Walmart, Target, etc. I bet these would be good for something.

    Reeline RipOffs make great holsters but sadly they've gone out of business. :(

    Ohh! That looks nice.
    I would need it longer though to fit a LM Charge, Inova X5, and a couple of small screwdrivers.
    Do you have a link or did you make it?

    Made it myself. There's more to look at my photo site if you want some ideas.

    Nice.
    Do you take commisions?
    Something like your 4.5" x 6" x 2" on page 3 would be perfect for my EDC.

    Some very impressive work there, ST (Hey, same initials as me!).
    One of these day I want to try my hand at leather working, as a silly kid I used to make shoulder holsters for my toy pellet guns. (I thought i was "Bodie" out of "The Professionals"!! :shrug:)LOL & have always been pretty good at sewing.

    I received my handmade leather pouch from Singteck today.
    I like it very much. The leather work is top notch.
    Working with him was very easy via email.
    I will probably end up ordering more items.
    Mark me down as a happy customer. O0
