I tried this setup for my car and the RAE Gear sheath clipped on extremely well, no movement what so ever and went well with my Fenix LD22 flashlight.

So I have been using the Sheaths for a number of weeks and I have found them to meet and exceed my expectations for the following reasons - 

 

* Footprint - The size of the RAE Gear sheaths are just slim and hugs the body.
 

* Weight - With some sheaths and pouches it adds further weight to an already heavy multi-tool, the RAE Gear sheaths are light weight and at 2 oz doesn't add much at to the overall weight and it dissipates


* Cost – At $25.00 USD ($32.90 AUD) the price is awesome, when considering for some sheaths your are paying around $50 - $80 USD and in some instances have to send your Multi-tool away to custom make a sheath at your expense.

* Workmanship – the RAE Gear sheaths are very solid and well made with USA based materials, I cannot fault the workmanship.

* Design – The design of the Sheaths is simple, but it bloody works, I mean it does the job brilliantly and has no extra items or attachments that could wear like Velcro or belt loops or material.

Would I recommend the RAE Sheaths? Hell yeah, if I worked in a role that enabled me to carry a multi-tool every day, I would be using the RAE Gear Sheaths, in fact I have been using the Surge and Wave daily.
