Tactical Flashlight Holster/Pouch

So, I have a Coast LED 'Tactical" flashlight. It's really excellent for the price, and so it has become my carry flashlight of choice. The problem is the cheap nylon pouch it came with is wearing out after just a couple months.

So, anybody have any ideas where I might get a holster?

Link to my light

The light is about 4.5" long by about 1" in diameter.

I made a snakeskin leather holster for one of my lights, but then decided I like using a key clip and a ring for the light. Most times I don't need the light so it seems much better to me. But I also have a led pen light on me most of the time, it is surprisingly bright for such a small light.
