  • Lumens: Up to 500 lumens.
  • Beam Distance: Approximately 131 meters.
  • Run Time: 1.5 hours.
  • Length: 2.51 inches.
  • Weight: 2.39 oz (with battery).
  • Battery: One CR123A lithium battery.
  • Water Resistance: IPX7 rated; waterproof up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
  • Mounting: Comes with multiple keys to fit a variety of handgun models.

With such features, the TLR-7 SUB provides a balance between power and portability. Given its unique build and specifications, the need for a holster that accommodates this addition becomes paramount.


  • Retention: With the added weight and dimension of the TLR-7 SUB, it’s essential to choose a holster that offers good retention, ensuring that the handgun stays in place during all activities. We highly recommend custom holsters made exactly for a combination of your handgun with TLR 7 SUB.
  • Material: The material plays a pivotal role in comfort and durability. Leather light-bearing holsters,  Kydex light-bearing holsters, and nylon light-bearing holsters are popular choices. While leather offers comfort, Kydex offers shape retention. Your choice should be based on your daily activity and comfort. Our recommendation is the best of both worlds, the hybrid light-bearing holsters.
  • Carry Position: Whether you prefer inside-the-waistband (IWB light-bearing holsters), outside-the-waistband (OWB light-bearing holsters), shoulder holsters, or appendix carry, ensure that the holster design complements the carry position while accommodating the TLR-7 SUB.
  • Accessibility: The purpose of having a light is to use it when required. Ensure that the holster does not interfere with light controls. In this way you will reassure yourself that light will be fully charged & ready to be used whenever you draw your gun.
  • Price: Quality holsters come in various price ranges. Ensure that you’re not compromising quality for cost, but also that you're getting value for your money.
