- Much to be disired
I recently purchased this holster less than a year ago. Im not sure what happened but while I was approaching a house for a call for a domestic, the suspect was standing in a dark corner by the side of the residence. I attempted to grab my 6PX out of the holster and I could'nt seem to pull the light out. Lucky for me, the guy didn't have a gun or I wouldn't be here writing this review. I went home that night and I literally had to take a hammer to the holster to get my flashlight out. Im sorry to say, I wont be buying another model of this holster because I consider it to be an officer safety issue.

- Great Product
The metal clamp inside my old V70 Polymer Speed Holster broke off awhile back. Likely just due to wear and tear, so I had no issues ordering another one because I love the light. This holster is great as is the light. No issues and I'll order it again if necessary.

I was given then the Z70 tactical light with the polymer holster for Christmas 8 years ago. I have worn this on duty every day since. I work law enforcement and Fire Rescue. This is the most rugged and useful flashlight and holster I have every had! No problems. I converted the light to LED a few years ago to save on batteries. I wear this under my turnouts. I bought a second holster for my duty gun belt and I transfer the light between uniforms.

- Great, solid holster.
I am a marine engineer, I carry a torch with me every day at work. I use the AZ2 Combat Light with this holster.
Its a heavy duty holster which securely holds the torch through any abuse.
The ability to insert the torch bezel down is a nice trick, makes deploying the light easy - specially if you have your other hand full (eg holding something up). As noted in other reviews though this does scratch the end of the bezel.
The only down side to it I found was, if you wear a thick belt, then you'll have to file down the channel to allow your belt to fit. Its fine if you wear a thin belt but mine was too thick to pass through.
All in all a great product for my favorite tool, my AZ2!!

Work as an armed courier and needed a holster for my Surefire 6P Classic light.
Attached this to a 1.75 inch, nylon, duty belt. Pretty happy with the product. Love how the flashlight can be inserted handle up. Increases the speed that I can use it with my sidearm in low light situations. Turn it around lens down in the daytime for more comfortable carry,
Minuses on this holster:
1. Carrying the light handle up scratches up the bezel around the light.
2. Constantly tightening the slide in the holster that keeps the holster secure to the belt and keeps it from moving up and down.
All in all, great product for what I paid for it.

I've worn a Surefire light for 10 years and this holster works great. I am a plumber and always grabbing and putting away the light. No velcro to wear out and the compression fit holds the light perfect.

- Retired USSS
Since my Federal retirement, I have been the Director of Corporate Security for two major companies. I have used the Surefire flashlights and holsters for about 14 years. I wore the polymer speed holster up side down on my belt with my normal casual attire on the same side I wore my weapon. I liked the fact that I knew I had to draw my weapon up and my light down. It held for years, and then the spring weakened and the light fell out twice breaking the lenses. Surefire replaced the bezel both times, but I have not received my replacement for the holster. Therefore, I use the canvass one and carry it right side up. I liked the polymer one until it broke. I love Surefire products. I find them to be excellent for offensive and defensive use in numerous situations most people would never think about.. They are reliable and the strongest light source I have found in such a small package.

- Good when its not broken
Very satisfied with the product up until the point it broke. I took the flashlight out if the holster and illuminated a suspect I was confronting. During the draw of the light the metal prongs that keep the light in broke. Lost my light in a foot pursuit. V70 needs to be more durable for people who draw and holster it 30-40 times a night.........fix that then it will be the best.

This holster leaves scratches on the flashlight as the flashlight is taken in and out, poor design, in my opinion.

- It works well
It holds your light well. Will not come loose at all.. Takes a little pressure to push in but then your light is secure.
Very happy with all SureFire products!
