Thanks for the excellent review Night Wing.  I have usually 100+ to walk as well.
And your board was plenty big for a test case.

Cool  ...save your energy for wielding the paddle, eh?   I made a cart because I carry a lot of C'hit and am a cripple. Carrying a 40 lb bag of salt 100' for the water conditioner is pretty much an agony-inducing chore. (maybe I could widen the hook a bit...)

Night Wing, thanks for buying one and reviewing it!  Im also curious about how much it hangs down, how much it weighs, etc.  Does it seem very durable?  How is the hook attached to the belt?  Is it extremely secure?

It is easy to adjust. It came with a sheet with 4 comments telling you how to adjust the board holster and with the 4 comments, there is also 4 pictures for each comment.

Now keep in mind, I'm 5'8" in height. From the top of the belt above my waist to the inside of the J-hook, that distance is 23" and it was not at this distance when I got it. I lengthened it to 23".

I lengthened it because my sup handle is offset to the right side of my 11'1"x 30" sup which means my grip handle is not in the middle of the board. When I was carrying the board in the holster, my right arm was hanging completely straight with four of my fingers in the Blue Planet Sup Grip handle.

The sup handle is closest to the right side of the board and this is why I like to carry the board with my right arm straight down and I also have long arms for a guy who is only 5'8".

From the top of the belt to the inside of the J-hook, I lengthened the hook to 23". It is very durable since the webbing is good quality with good quality plastic belt buckles. And the webbing is 1 1/2" (1.50") in width.

The entire belt around you, above your hips is "padded". The back of the belt is the widest at 3" and tapers as it starts to go around you. It was very comfortable when I was carrying my 22 pounds, 14 ounce OneWorld at 11'1" x 30" x 4.5" @ 173 liters.

As for the weight of the holster belt, it weighs around 1 (one) pound. And it will accommodate a sup which is 5 1/2" (5.50") in width at the thickest part of the sup (usually around the standing area).

It was secure to stay in the J-hook holster when I was coming up the hill to my home with a steady 18mph crosswind gusting to 23 mph.

My wife told me it was worth the money since she knows a good thing when she sees it. After all, she married me over 45 years ago.  ;)
