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.

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 !

Blown away by the quality and heavy duty construction.

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
