A hard holster for flashlights equipped with a quick detach is ideal for guards, military police and other authorities, for whom a flashlight is a good idea to keep at your fingertips at all times. Definite assets for the holder are good protection against hits, superb fit, adjustment possibilities and easy usability. The holder is compressed around the flashlight and the rubberized extra safety part prevents the flashlight from being detached from the holder even in tough going. The base has a removable rubber cup, with an inside diameter of approx. 34 mm.
The holder is supplied with a plastic paddle-type belt fastener, familiar from other Cytac holsters, which you can easily attach to either a belt or to the waist of your pants. The maximum thickness of the belt is the standard 1.75” (~45 mm). The platform is shaped so that it fits the user’s body better. The inner side of the paddle platform is lined with a soft silicone mix that keeps the holster in place also when pulling the light out.
You can rotate Cytac (and Amomax) holsters 360 degrees on the base to suit your needs. The fastening point between the holster and the base is easy by aligning the small teeth – the angle of the holster can be adjusted with steps of about 9°. This allows different draw and carrying positions (gun on your belt, behind your back, in the vest, crossdraw etc.). The fastening is familiar from IMI Defense retention roto holsters. We have also tested that the IMI and Cytac holsters and bases are compatible with each other!
The holder is best suitable for 25 mm or 1 inch thick flashlights. 30 mm thick flashlights also fit in the holder, but the holder is not compressed as nicely around a thicker tube.
Cytac as a Manufacturer

Cytac vs. Amomax
Molemmat kotelot ovat yllättäen saman valmistajan tuotoksia, mutta eroja on silti! Amomaxit noudattelevat Cytacin ykkös- ja kakkossukupolven koteloiden ulkomuotoa, mutta erot eivät jää siihen:
Viranomaiskäyttö ja muu rääkki
Casual (airsoft, urheiluammunta)
Cytac- ja Amomax-pistoolikotelot ovat yhteensopivia samojen 360 säädettävien lisävarusteiden kanssa. Materiaalien eroista mainittakoon se, että molemmat ovat lujaa tavaraa, mutta PA6 on samaa tavaraa, mistä esimerkiksi parhaat nippusiteet tehdään.
