[endurance] carrying easy boots

Like most of you, I carry an Easyboot at all times - just in case.
(In fact, I now carry 2 since my new horse needs a different size on
each front foot.) I have always used an easyboot bag from Griffin's
of Montana, & it has worked pretty well. It has been large enough to
carry the boot, vet wrap, a strap to help pull the boot on, and a
tool to help me to remove the boot.

At a ride recently I saw a belt clip for the easyboot made out of
leather. I thought that the idea of carrying it myself in a clip on
a belt sounded like a good idea (keeps from banging & scarring up my
new saddle). Has anybody tried one of these? Where do you find/buy
them? (The person I saw using it flew by us so fast that I didn't
get a chance to ask her.) I guess ll of the other paraphenalia that
goes with putting on an easyboot would have to go into a bag or in my
fanny pack.

Does anybody have other methods for securing the boot other than a
bag or tieing it directly to the saddle? I'd love to hear from you.
