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 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.

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

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...
