Since light meters are basically nonexistent in the indie market, it's becoming harder to find well established brands that cater for light metres pouches. Been looking for what pouch to role with for days now, found a couple that looked good but none advertise for fitting the new L858D model from Sekonic. It's a shame Arri stopped producing and stocking their utility pouches, they were great. May someone point me in the right direction?

 

Cheers.

Seth

If there's nothing ready made, any good leather worker could custom make one for you.

Karau (http://karauproducts.com) make fantastic pouches, tough and beautifully made. I have one for my lightmeter and another for my spectrometer. I don't leave home without mine.

They make one for the 858: https://www.filmtools.com/sek608and608.html 

Highly recommended.

I use the pouch that came with my 858. Haven't had one problem with it.
