Ah, only one pic doubled...  :facepalm:


Same loadout as before -Wave, -Bitkit, +MP600 BN


As you can see it fits better nose-down, as the bottom of the sheath isn't exactly straight.

The MP fits rather nicely (by the looks of it), and gives you a good bit to get a grip of to pull it out.  The Plus might be too deep looking at your pics.

Hmmmm....  One would think that choosing a sheath would be something simple.  Good thing we here at MT.O know that nothing is as simple as it should be.  :D

Like I said, it's actually already quite deep for the Wave (it would be even deeper if I wouldn't use the clip). A L-shield might be a better fit for the Wave, but is not as universal for your other tools. I don't know how well the ST200 would fit though, and I don't have one of those.


Besides that, the options are quite great, though the knife carry straps might be a bit conspicuous, it fits lots of stuff (I mean, with a 84mm SAK and a CR123 flashlight along with the MT, what else would you need?)

Rebar BO
LM Bit Driver with most used bits
Vic Compact Plus
Pocketwrench II
Thrunite Tis AAA flashlight
LM Bit Extender

My loadout, not as fancy as some. Will be changing soon, as I plan to swap out the Compact Plus for an Explorer Plus once I get the funds to order one. I also might try out that new Fenix AAA flashlight. Then this Skinth's load will be complete.

Initial impressions were "whoa, this is kinda big" although I somewhat knew that already and that was only because of the visual first impressions.

While it's wider than the default LM Wave sheath I was using, it's narrower. I can wear this and forget about because it rides nice and close to the body. I love having everything in one convenient package. It's certainly freed up my regular pocket space.


kkokkolis, might I suggest a belt designed for carrying a firearm. More specifically one of the reinforced shooting belts. They are specifically designed not to bend or droop under weight like yours is. Just a thought.   :salute:

This x100000000. I can not stress more as to what the Cap said. When I first started conceal carrying, I thought I was going to have to change firearms to something smaller/lighter because of the droop/sag caused by it.

Once I got a gun belt, AKA a duty belt, everything carries like a champ with no sag at all. Last night I went to a friends with my Skinth 2 XL loaded up, my IWB holster and larger/heavy-ish folder on me and nobody was the wiser. Love it.

So far, I love the Skinth. Can't wait to get an Explorer Plus to switch out for the Compact for a more well rounded tool load out.


On a different note, a guy at work recognized the Skinth on my desk and asked about it. Apparently he is a lurker of EDCForums and has been eyeballing one for a while but was hesitant to order one due to not being able to handle/see it first. I let him fondle/try on my Skinth and he said he plans to order one next payday. Score for getting another sale for Metro. :tu:

Also, I take the opportunity to excuse in advance for eventual grammatical errors/horrors I'll make.. English isn't my primary language!

Any recommendations for a duty belt? I'd prefer something I can wear with jeans or cargo/khakis (do they come in leather?)?

My Trailblazer arrived today I'm still playing about with various loadouts. it would help if my Surge was here but I should get that on Saturday.

What torches (flashlights) are a snug fit with high lumens and use a CR123 or rechargeable do other carry?
