We worked really, really hard on this!
I thought it looked pretty straightforward. So simple! But despite the abundance of photos available, there were still many mysteries left to solve. The obsession grew. Mostly involving the hardware - the rigging on the back of the buckles, the attachment of the holster, the shape of the hooks on the ends of the belt. I wanted to bring you a holster rig as faithful to the original wardrobe prop as possible, but still practical and affordable. Eventually, the mysteries were solved to my satisfaction and those details were included in our design.
Now to the details! The holster rigs are made from 10 ounce cowhide leather with a natural finish. The belt compartments are cut from thinner leather, hand stitched with heavy saddle-grade waxed thread, with functioning snaps. Our buckles are made from stainless steel with welded rigging on the back. The belt end hooks are stainless steel, and each end, each movie version has a different design! Yeah, they're all different, wouldn't you know! The holster portion articulates as the screen used rigs did, with a full 45 degree range of motion. Each belt features an aluminum disk of proper design according to your chosen movie version (Except for ROTJ which uses the ESB disk). The stainless steel droid caller clip is much sturdier than the aluminum ones used on screen.
The holster will fit any 1:1 scale blaster replica with the original dimensions. An adjustable leg strap keeps everything secure.
The belts do not adjust for size, so measure around your waist over your trousers (trust me, you are much bigger than you think!) order as close to your actual size as possible. If in between sizes, I'd recommend ordering the next smaller size. Metal blasters weigh a ton, and gravity, being as relentless as it is, will do it's work unless you order the right size.
Enjoy your day as a space smuggler with our awesome holster rig! Durable, functional, and authentic!
Use a cloth tape to measure your hip where you want to the belt to ride. Consider the Pants you will be wearing with it, Purchase the nearest length to your measurement.

This is an amazing piece. The details are great. The quality is amazing. I wore a an issued leather military holster for a while during a deployment and this holds up to the quality and durability. You could easily carry a real pistol in one if you wanted. It is obviously made to carry the DL-44 offered on this site, made of metal and of substantial weight. The metal work is extremely sturdy and works perfectly as far as movement for your legs and hips. I wear a 30"-31" inch jean and I bought the 36", it fits great over my Han Solo pants, some regular jeans and even my Army uniform. Plus, it looks really cool. The cut is perfect and replicates that Solo swagger perfectly. The leg band has four snaps so you can adjust the holster so it doesn't rub, swing or bounce on your leg. All the parts are new and unweathered so you have a chance to tell your own story through the years of wear you get out of it. Bonus, the leather smells really good!

I decided to be Han Solo for Halloween on a whim, and quickly was overwhelmed by the array of options available. While parts of my costume are home fabricated, nothing I could make would come close to the quality or fit of Todd's holster. It shipped the day after I ordered it and delivery was very quick. Warning that once you get this, you will want to splurge on all other aspects of the costume to match! Be aware that the $10 plastic blaster many people buy for their costume does not fit in the holster at all.

Very well made and worth the extra investment.
Leagues ahead of the PU Leather version I picked up on eBay which looked like I had made it.

A beautiful piece of kit, high quality all round and it fits exactly as measured. They also went the extra mile to help out when Canada Post almost lost the package (thank you again). Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.

I'm very pleased with Todd's Costume's genuine leather gun belt. Excellent craftsmanship and accuracy. There is just a very minor difference between the Todd's Costume belt and the screen version that I picked up on. But most would be hard pressed to even recognize it. As far as I'm concerned 30 something year old Harrison Ford could strap this belt on for A New Hope and no one would know he changed it. It's THAT well made! But when ordering please take measurement and sizing directions seriously. You will get the right size as long as you follow the instructions on how to choose the correct size accurately.

Excellent experience and awesome service

Absolutely amazing! Exceptional quality! The rig set up is so well put together and for that price I snapped one up quicker than when the Falcon made the kessel run in less than 12 parsecs!
I measured my waist at 40" and ordered the size 40; fits perfectly, holds my DL-44 all metal blaster comfortably and without dragging the belt down at all.
Really fast shipping and well packaged to the UK.
Many thanks to Todds Costumes

Belt and holster look and feel great, I've been wearing it around the house since I received it! The belt I ordered initially was a bit too snug, and Todd's Costumes responded to my exchange request extremely fast, and I had the correct size shipped to me as soon as I sent the first one back. Great customer service, and a good blaster at your side...what more could you ask for?

You can't have a good blaster at your side without a great holster! I knew from experience with Todds indy gear, that the Solo Holster was going to be a knock out for accuracy and quality. Wearing todds belt, i know my blaster is safe and ready for the draw when needed. Best belt overall i've found. Already have a blaster... but im debating to pick up one of Todds now too!

ANH rig arrived today after much anticipation and I'm pleased to say it exceeds all expectations in terms of quality and authenticity! It absolutely recreates the classic look from A New Hope and is a fantastic addition to my prop and costume collection!
Thanks to all involved, from a very happy (and likely to return) customer!

This rig is AMAZING,accurate and awesome for the money!
The only thing I can say is that it stiff and needs to be broke in first.

I first would like to say this is by far one of the best Han Solo rigs out there! I first purchased a size 40 inch thinking that this would be the correct size given my current ant side of 33. The 40 inch was just a little too big. Todds costumes customer service was quick to respond to my emails and gladly made the exchange process for the size 38 easy. The size 38 fits great , just below my best line at my hips! I was so pleased with the ANH version I actually purchased the ESB version so I could switch back and forth. Anyone out there looking for a great Han Solo rig , look no further, this one is great IMO . You won't be disappointed. 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks guys and gals for all the hard work !! Great job !
