    I was going to get some of their flashlight sheaths. Maybe not now. But where else can I get them and have an option other than black?

    Perhaps leather one from Elmore's Leather, through the Forum Store, made by Member Arch Ronin.
    Or a Skinth.

    You could try a Condor Tactical single magazine pouch, it's what I use for my Surefire Defender. Seems to be pretty tough.

    I came here to beat a dead horse. I went to the Maxped site to see what everyone is talking about... Lol. First off, the mannequin they use to model the pouch makes it look bad. Like their target audience is men who tuck grey t shirts into their poorly fitted pleated khakis with a mis-matched belt.

    The pouches themselves look really clumsy and awkward. And gigantic. One of them looks like it can hold an industrial staple gun. How many people need that? I see needing a staple gun a few times a day if you are running cable or putting up new centers on a target, but then carry it all day? It seems like they tried to copy a Skinth, but made it bigger, uglier, and filled with less useful options. Not one pic had a multitool or light in the pouch, and I would imagine their over worked lawyer suggested that. Really amateur attempt.
    That is all....

    Maybe the reason they didnt put real gear in the pictures is that it would bust open the poorly executed seams.

    If the dead horse was a bad horse is it bad to do a little kicking?

    I don't know if it is good or bad to do a little kicking, but it sure is fun.

    I just picked up a pair of Keen work boots. I am impressed! Very light and sturdy and the toe box actually fits my flipper - like wide feet! The sole is wearing unevenly at the toe and heel, like little chunks of rubber are coming off, not the normal smooth abrasion I would expect. If they last a year, they are as good as any other boot I have used.

    Now...Back to kicking and beating...

    What's up with the knives on the Maxped Site? Am I right? Look like SanRenMu knock offs, right? Just buy a Mora from Jon, it a much better value! Rabble Rabble peas and carrots rabble rabble

    Come on! Come on! More kicking and beating! I haven't had this much fun in weeks! :p

    Also, +1 on Arch Ronin's leather work. It is great stuff.

    Doggone it. Shoulda been using the iPad. When I read this, the coffee sprayed all over the screen and keyboard.


    Of course, I had to look. I almost wish someone (anyone) else marketed a version of the thing under a better name. I might have actually gotten a couple to use on that craptastic Eddie Bauer pack.

    I considered Hazard 4 but they only have one sheath. It would hold my Fenix PD20 but not my TK12.

    Also, I have a tracking number from Hazard 4 that tracks nothing, instead gives an error. I have contacted them about this and have received no reply.

    I may be forced to go with the Maxped. product as they have the sizes I need and the colors as well.

    However, I suppose I have found a niche here and if I could acquire the materials and a sewing machine I could make them myself, or just sew them by hand.

    I have always disliked Maxped, I bought a sling bag once and it was so bulky with pockets and pouches and such there was barely any room to carry stuff in it. Bulky crap.
