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.

I don't know if there might be better around..
But believe me sits like the original screen prop.
Materials and craftmanship are great!

When I first heard that Todd was going to offer a Han Solo holster I was very excited. Todd makes great products and I knew this would hold up to that standard. When the pricing was announced I thought it might be too good to be true. I was not disappointed in any way. The holster is made of quality, thick leather with full metal trim and attachments. It will look great on display and should hold up to years of costume wear. I don't know how long these will be in stock but if you're on the fence you should jump on these because there isn't anything else out there with this combination of price and quality. Thank you Todd!

I have been thinking about doing a Han Solo costume for a long time but always talked myself out of because I couldn't find a decent holster for under $400. When Todds teased this rig on Facebook I couldn't wait to find out the price, when it came in at $224.95 I couldn't give them my money fast enough. I have bought various Indiana Jones gear from Todds over the years and I have always been pleased with the products and the service. This holster is no exception. The leather is thick and the hardware is very sturdy. I can see this thing going on many adventures! Now if Todds would offer a good replica of Han's blaster...
