Holster specifically built for the Olight lights M2R, S30RIII, H2R.
Available in 2 colors: black and desert tan.
A step in the right direction.I have two of these as of this review. At the moment one is mounted to vest equipped with molle webbing. First point I very much appreciate the compact nature of the pouch. Previous Olight pouches are just to bulky. By that I mean they are too much material around the edges. Taking up extra space on vests and belts. Which for some can be an issue. I'm a fairly small framed person so finding room on a belt or vest for someone with a 28' waist is a challenge. But even with much more fluffy folks on person carry I would imagine having wasted space is an issue. Anyway it is very compact on the vest and just squeezed between two other pouches I have mounted.
Some folks have commented on the clip that holds the pouch closed. Here again this is a big step up. I have previous pouches that are made of a rather built up stiff thick material. Not sure why but maybe its just a matter of that is what has been used so why rock the boat. One has a snap while the other uses velcro. In a tactical situation both are less than ideal. The snap has a very obvious sound and we all know that velcro sound. This plastic buckle is much quieter! On both pouches I've been practicing deploying the lights as efficiently and quietly as possible. Almost to the point where I hardly can hear it at all.
Between the compact and space saving design and the now more stealthy closure, I have to give this pouch a four star review.
The only thing I will give it a point off for is I mount to molle. Bags, vests, etc. It doesn't really conform to that standard. But being that it isn't very big issue. Just have to remember that when putting it on I have to push up that bottom bit of molle webbing up a little to clear the snap. Moving it down a little more would have eliminated that tiny detail. There does seem to be some evolution on this pouch, my first had just two holes top and bottom that were sewn, this most recent has two grommets which make the holes almost twice as wide.
I hope Olight adopts this design for pouches on its other models. Maybe the next update will have an adjustable flap.
Nice material but poor designThe holster is well-made, (for the Seeker 2 Pro) but I feel Olight was trying to get too cute with the closure flap. Its basically a 2-step process to open and close it. You have to press in slightly and then slide the flap up. Same for closing. You have to make sure you have the flap in the slot before you can push it in the rest of the way to lock it in place. A simple velcro closure would have been so much easier and just as effective in closing the holster. Also, the inside of the holster is very snug. If a lanyard is used, it and the rubber grips makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to get it into the holster. It fits better without any type of lanyard. I feel the holster should have been made with a little wider diameter on the inside to make it easier to get the light in and out of it.
