Sheath Recommendations...?
« on: August 12, 2020, 02:59:39 PM »
... for a few different scenarios.

1. LM Rebar with 1 bit card and a folding knife (93mm SAK or Opinel 6/8)
2. LM ST300 with 1 bit card and a folding knife (93mm SAK or Opinel 6/8)
3. LM tool (either Rebar or ST300) with a Buck 110--this one's a challenge.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

A double mag pouch or a custom sheath.

For one tool, bit set/adapter, and AA/AAA flashlight, I use the stock LM sheaths or the LM MOLLE XL (which not only fits on a belt just fine, but has more pockets, and is better quality than stock).

Tool, flashlight (AA/AAA again), bit set/adapter, and a knife/other tool, as well as pliers and other stuff--Gerber CustomFit Quad. I have an entire compact toolkit built around one of these. But, they are so expensive for a factory sheath (mine was $20 used), just get a Skinth made up.  But, it is incredibly heavy on a belt fully loaded down, so I don't recommend that much stuff on your belt.

Awesome—thanks. How many pockets in one of those Leatherman Molles?

Thanks! How’s the weight on it carrying both tools?


I don't have one so   :dunno:

I have used a double mag pouch for Super Tool 300 and Flash light or another knife. It distributes the weight over a wider area so it is quite comfortable if you don't mind belt carry anyway, but two single pouches would do just as well.  I've also used a small cell phone pouch made when phones were a lot smaller (flip phone sized) and achieved good results.  A pouch made to hold a pack of cigarettes and a lighter is about the same size and they still sell those in most convenience stores.  If you prefer pocket carry You can buy or make a leather pocket sheath that will hold everything you want to put in it.

Thanks Alan! I really appreciate all the recommendations and pics. I like the look of that double mag pouch a lot. I don’t mind belt carry at all. It’s the easiest when I’m outside. Saves fumbling through my pockets with hands full of dirt (or worse if I’m out with the pigs). I might give it a try.
