    So after reading some posts in another thread earlier today (e cig holder idea), I was looking on google to see if I could find a picture of the case. As I was scrolling through images of the various styles of holsters, pouches, lanyards, and cases, I noticed that a lot of them look like flashlight holsters. Several of the people participating in the other thread had also mentioned flashlight holders.


    Then I got to thinking.... :rolleyes: I have a high quality leather flashlight holster somewhere. It used to belong to a police officer friend of mine. I started digging around in my drawers to see if I could find it. There it was... At the bottom depths of the junk drawer where "stuff" goes to die, I found it. It is the perfect size for a larger PV such as a Tesla with an RBA.


    After looking at it i decided that it could work, but it would be easy for a device to slip out if it were tilted and I also didn't want the RBA to get damaged. It needed a way to protect and secure the device when it was not in use. :confused: I did some more digging around, and in the same drawer and I found a broken sunglasses strap. I used it to fashion a safety strap and create some extra padding at the top of the holster. It looks like it could do the trick. I wasn't really looking for a PV holster today, but it sort of came together as I was reading the thread. Can anyone say serendipity? I will try it out for a day and see how it goes... Here are some pictures. Let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions.

    It's a really good idea. Some UK supplier should make these for the Vamo (hint hint). A shoulder holster would be very handy for the summer months imho. Nice job!

    I am actually really surprised that each manufacturer doesn't have a form fitting holster design for their mods. It seems natural. I think they would sell like hot cakes.

    Thanks TomCatt... Those are really nice. I like the way that the holes are cut so you can access the buttons. The only thing that I don't like about mine and the ones being sold on that page is that there is not really any good way to protect the atty. I know that it would be hard to do that because there are so many varying shapes and sizes of head units. I have always been very particular about holsters and cases. Most of the things that require them are delicate and expensive. I think it comes from 8 years of military school. Everything is supposed to have its own safe place. :laugh: Ok, and there is some functional OCD at play too. I like to make things "better" What do you use and how do you cary it with you when you are not at home?

    Subbing this post - I really want to know how to carry this Vamo and eVic - they are slippery little suckers. I'd prefer a lanyard (in case it slips out of my hands.) I know they're pretty heavy and cumbersome for a lanyard and I'd look like a geek, but I need something for carrying around home at least. Any homemade ideas??

    EDIT: tc - I like where you are going with your homemade idea. I def. need "safety straps" lol.

    Always good when you can improvise (and make room in the junk drawer for other stuff in the process)

    Lanyards ar the way to go for convenience. The problem with the big PV,s it that they can hurt when they swing around and wack you in the face... :facepalm: LOL. I would like to do the same thing. tj99959, your setup is pretty sweet. It would be pretty easy to attach a neck strap to something like that. Someone had also suggested a shoulder strap. Its fun to tinker.

    I do that from time to time, but a Provari can get a little heavy hanging from the neck after a while.

    Pouches for tool belts come in a lot of shapes and sizes as well. Depending on the mod, a hammer holder might work

    Usually either in my hand or in a pocket, never could get used to any type of belt holster :D
