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.

Fantastic quality rig for the price, looks great, very well made. I wear a size 34 waist in pants, but my waist actually measures 38 inches. I initially ordered a size 38, which turned out to be way too small. So I returned it for a size 42, which was too big. I returned that second rig, and received a size 40, which fits me perfectly, and hangs right around my hips. Customer support was extremely helpful, and responded to all of my emails quickly. Plus they were very fast to get my replacement rigs shipped out. Definitely recommended, get one while you can, you won't find a better one at this price!!!

This is one sweet holster rig! Fits like a glove (though if my thighs were any more muscular I'd have a problem), holds the greeblies and blaster perfectly, and it's constructed strong enough to last forever. Did I mention it looks fantastic? A Solo must!

I lucked out and ordered when they were in stock so I only had to wait a couple of weeks for mine.
I wear a 32 waist in jeans and ordered a 36" holster (ANH version); it fits great. It sits just a bit below the waist but doesn't feel like it's going to fall off.
The build quality is amazing, although like the poster below I'm thinking about weathering the leather, as it's pretty uniform and new-looking.
One note about the holster and the fit for a blaster - I have a plastic "prop replica" DL44 that I got from eBay for ~$75. The scope on that gun is more or less in-line with the gun and consequently the fit is pretty tight in the holster. I think the holster (at least the ANH version) is designed for a blaster that has the scope offset from the gun (which is movie accurate). While my current blaster works OK, I'm probably going to upgrade to a more expensive metal version with an offset scope. I figure if you're going to spend the money on a high quality holster, it makes sense to have a high quality blaster to go with it!

I ordered this ANH holster about 4 months ago now. For the price, this is an excellent value. The leather is well treated and heavy. The hardware looks great and seems really sturdy. I foresee many years of use out of this belt.
I'm debating weathering it a bit as the leather is fairly uniform and Han's a bit battered.
I wear a 32 waist in Levis and ordered the 37 inch. It fits great. It rode a little high on my without the blaster, but with a resin blaster, it pulls it down below the trouser belt. I think the 38 would be too large with the weight of the blaster.
Would buy again in a heartbeat!

Missed out on ordering one in the summer but managed to finally snag one! Well worth the wait. The leather quality is amazing and the fit is great. I'm a bit of a shorty so the holster hangs quite low but it's not too much to worry about. Ordered ESB but only ANH was available so Todd is sending the ESB add-ons soon.

I just received the holster today and must say it's fantastic! The quality of the leather is really good and the finish is spot on. It hangs just right on my hips and fits my denix blaster perfectly. I think Todd updated the belt buckles as it does have the epoxy mount (as shown in the picture). Instead, the buckle is one piece of aluminum which makes it very sturdy. Very pleased with the product and can't wait for Todd's other star wars offerings. One step closer to the full Han Solo outfit

the screw that was epoxied on both buckles were broke off but I plan on a repair attempt myself since the rest of the belt is of suck high quality

I just got my holster in the mail and it is amazing! The detail and workmanship of this holster is top notch, definitely worth the money. I was worried that I had chosen the wrong size but the holster fits perfectly. I am a 34" waist and I ordered the 38"(97cm), for anyone who is my same size. Thank you very much Todd's Costumes. I am very happy with my order.

Sturdy & Well made, this will stand up to being worn unlike many flimsy reproductions. Also the buckles are the correct size unlike other versions out there. Super fast shipping to Australia really blew my mind.

I ordered the holster and unfortunately it had a broken snap on the the leg strap. I have purchased many things from Todd so I KNEW it was not going to be a worry. I contacted them by email and IMMEDIATELY got an return label to send it back for a replacement. Even though I measured several times, Mine was also too large so exchanged down one size also. You want this to fit very snug especially if you have an all metal DL-44. Also a plus... my S&W revolver with 6" barrel fits perfectly and looks just as cool in this rig. Can't wait for the replacement to arrive

I am not a big Star Wars fan. Love the filns but I don't costume or collect. But from the entire saga, I have always wanted a Solo Rig. More importantly, I wanted a Solo Rig modified into a cellphone holster. So I bought this rig so that I could modify it and I have to say, I am very impressed.
I think the description may need some revising, though. It is described as heavy but felt really light to me. It is actually very adjustable with most pieces having a series of snaps instead of being permanently rivoted. The leather is a nice thick quality and a great color. It sits and hangs very comfortably and doesn't bind at all as I wrote it almost all day. The pockets work just fine as do the buckles and screws. I ordered the size described to me and it fit perfect right outa the box.
I have many of todds Indy products and he has always produced very accurate gear. The quality has been hit or miss on most of these but Todd and the crew have always had great customer service. Shipping was very fast. The quality of this item feels top notch. I have only had it for about a week but have been using it daily and there seems to be no weak points. Well done, Todd's.
