Leather Holster/Jacket for Turtlejacket

 

Yes the Turtlejacket Tri-Eye is heavy, but it is super cool and useful I have no reason not to carry it everyday, so instead of just customizing it with masking tapes and eraser, I made a holster for it in the name of manliness. Yup, the jean looks cool too, tell me what you think. I wish I had a Bond girl model to take this photo to get that extra sexy thigh holster look.

 

I planned the holster on my Traveler's Notebook for a week, it went from minimalist design to complicated snaps and buckles, but eventually I decided to make it as simple as possible coz Tri-Eye is cool by itself already.

 

The result is a simple holster made from one piece of leather, featuring a metal hook and a belt loop. Took me just an hour to make, but the planning was 10 times longer.

 

So other than my Olympus EP-3, this is my other perfect gear set for light travel: iPhone 4s, Turtlejacket Tri-Eye, Manfrotto monopod, Snapseed+Pixlromatic+645Pro apps.
