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 absolutely an incredibly awesome ANH Han Solo holster rig. This is very heavy duty and well made. The craftsmanship is superb. I am more than pleased. You will not go wrong with buying this. FYI make sure you measure correctly around your hips as instructed.

I Bought a more pricey belt from another vendor and Todd's was astronomically superior in quality. Seriously. Whatever they want time is. It's worth it.

Amazing holster. Really excited to use this item. Quickly received and prepared.
The protective packaging's filter paper was very difficult to remove from the holster, but otherwise, it was a seamless experience. Thank you!

The ESB Han Solo holster rig I purchased from Todd's is of the upmost quality. I could not be happier with the craftsmanship, fit, and look. If you are looking to put together a Han Solo costume than this is the holster you want.

I have been dreaming about this holster for literally 20 years. I sat waiting like a kid on the front porch when the postman dropped it off. The holster did not disappoint. It is everything I hoped it could be. I immediately strapped it on and tried my blaster in it. Fits like a glove. (I have the AW Airsoft blaster.) Be sure to follow the measurement directions closely. It isn't difficult, but make sure you get it right. The Rubies blaster will not fit in this holster. It is incredible. You will not be disappointed. If you want to bring a sense of quality to your costume skip the cheap costume versions, save a few more bucks and get this high quality fully leather version. The hardware is top notch. It won't fall apart if you turn the wrong way. Any smuggler would be proud to strap this on their hip and carry their trusty DL-44. After all these years I finally have an amazing quality holster at an even more amazing price. Thank you for all you do for the community, Todd. We are lucky to have you.

I had been waiting some time for this rig to arrive and it was certainly worth the wait. The build quality and attention to detail is excellent. I have already ordered the belt to go with it. Just need to pull my finger out and get on with my blaster build.

I could not be happier with this product and with Todds Costume in general. The Han Solo ESB Holster if superb craftsmanship. The communication with Todds was prompt and friendly. I will look to them for all my prop needs.

Holster is terrific, made of quality thick leather and well machined metal parts. Make sure you measure properly; I used my exact measurement around hips (not waist/stomach). The fit was snug, not too tight but being that it doesn’t go through a belt loop and hangs on hip, that is the fit you need especially if carrying a metal blaster.

This is the most authentic and best quality prop/replica of it's type! The attention to detail is fantastic and it has the heft and weight you'd expect from a proper belt and holster! The size advice is spot on and it sits perfectly on my waist/hips. Perfect for cosplay and conventions! Fantastic Job all round! Many thanks to all the team at Todds Costumes!
