There have been some recent discussions of the Hoodman Loupe, so I thought it might be helpful to post my modifications of the case. I made them because two cases fell off my laniard, once while walking in a city and once while hiking in the mountains. In the first situation, I didn't realize it had fallen until too late and I never found it. In the second situation, I was able to retrieve it but the Loupe had separated into pieces. Though Hoodman was very responsive to my issues, I was apparently the first person to have this problem. Even so, it happened with two different cases soon after I began using them!
So, I modified the case so it could be worn on a belt and so it would no longer be at risk. Both my wife and I have been using the modified version for three years with no problem at all. I obtained the brown strap and buckle at a crafts store, though I would have bought a black strap if they had had one. I cut the slits in the case using a typical box cutter. I then applied glue to the slits on the inside to prevent the fabric from unraveling. I'm not sure the glue was necessary.
