Has anyone tried these shears?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002WJHE7E/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B002WJHEHY&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0E93VVH733GTHNX81701

I'm looking to pick up a couple pairs of good shears before I head to a more... trauma intensive environment. I'm looking for something reasonably priced yet effective. Something that I won't cry over if I lose but have still been proven to work.

I'm also in the market for a holster...something similar to this

All I want to hold is shears, kellys, pen, light...maybe a knife.

any suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

ripoffs holsters makes several holsters that you might find useful.

the ripoffs co - 145 has two pockets with velcro straps, and a large open area that will accommodate a set of trauma shears.

I have these scissors and they are excellent! They work so well and I have had mine for 6 years now and still work like brand new!

What unit would a nurse use bandage scissors or trauma shears most?

I have those shears and I LOVE THEM! They are quite large though so I usually leave them in my bag and opt for a smaller pair. I need to use them more because they are great. I have a pocket holster as well but I never used it. It weighed down one pocket so much that it looked strange. These holsters look more like something I would use.

I have those shears and I like them. But I tried the pocket holsters and left back in my car. Too much trouble. What a do is buy one of these http://www.amazon.com/Carabiner-Retractable-ID-Proximity-Individually/dp/B001OVDGFK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1306787778&sr=8-1 and attach it to the finger loop. This way my shears don't walk away.
