Or just do a search for "Dove magic" on ebay and you'll find Thomas fine professional quality products. The first thing I noticed was that these are higher than usual quality items. I have purchased dove holders harnesses and pockets from many different sources.

First I will talk about the pockets...

The material for the pockets are super slick, and the doves seem to just glide out effortlessly, its certainly better than any other pocket I have bought.

They fit most birds just fine. Its sad but some commercially available pockets are really too snug for some birds. These are beautifully made, and function as you would
expect from much more expensive ones.

These are worlds ahead of any other as far as construction and durability go as well. I'm no seamstress or taylor, but you can just look at the stitching and tell someone really did a great job on these (that would probably have been Thomas!)

Thomas also provides excellent instructions overall, and even includes pins so you can just pull your pockets out of the box and use them right away, that's a nice touch which shows he's thinking of his customers.

Now on to the holders. I should mention that first I bought just one pocket, holder and invisible dove harness. Once I took a look at them I ordered a whole bunch more.

In fact for holders, I ordered multiple colors, a service that Thomas was happy to provide at no extra expense. I ordered black, red, green, blue, purple and white dove holders.

Thomas customer service overall is the best I have experienced. He worked with me on my order, and even later went and made me custom silks of each color to perfectly match the holders.

How did I like the holders? Well I have bought at least 5 different type of holders and I think these are the best I have seen. They use the hook and eyelet method instead of snaps, which works beautifully.

Unlike many holders, you really don't have to trim your birds tailfeathers to fit. (Thats something most experts agree you should not do to your bird!)

The tail section is long enough to almost completely cover the birds tail.

The material is thicker than most dove holders, thicker as in better quality. The stiching is superb, and I am really hard on props, so trust me when I say these holders will last you forever.

They fit all birds just beautifully, and the shape is excellent. Thomas offered me my choice of dove wire and other options for my loops.

Thomas literally makes your order TO order, I find that a great thing.
All around, these are the holders I will use as long as he keeps making them.

Invisible dove harnesses - Thomas provides excellent dove harnesses. They fit the birds just perfectly, but still allow for some adjustment. Unlike some people, he even uses white velcro. Does that really matter? Yes I think it does, and it shows he is trying to make the best products possible.

I am not sure what material he uses, but even from just a few feet away, these harnesses are truly invisible on the birds. With my previous harnesses, I would not want to use them for kids shows (too close!) Now I can get away with that no problem...

Unlike many harnesses, these are comfortable apparently for the bird. You put this on right and the bird is still able to fly, does not flop around uncomfortably like
some harnesses...

Again, a totally excellent best in its class product.

Now some final thoughts....

The best part of Thomas products are the prices. Look around, and you will see that he sells his harnesses, pockets and holders for about half the going price of some commercially manufactured ones.

Myself, I appreciate hand crafted quality so I really prefer Thomas gear, even at the full usual going price (or higher). There is no doubt to me that Thomas will be successful, because he's selling a better quality product at half the price of other products. I feel you really and truly get your moneys worth from his gear.

His speedy service is excellent, my big (and custom) order was at my door 3 days after I completed the order with him.

I highly reccomend his products. Visit

Thanks Thomas, some of us appreciate your efforts and help!

Everyone seems to be. I will be posting a review of his doves to bunny, which I think I have used more than any other magic prop I ever bought before...

Thomas just sells great stuff all around...

I just received in the mail last week a new load of 6 holders and 2 invisible dove harnesses and I have to say yet again how great these are.

I now have every color I want...

My thanks to Thomas for the good service, fast delivery and good products.

We hear horror stories when people place magic orders and something does
not go well, but we don't really hear about people who have had good
experiences... I would say I would highly reccomend Thomas products
to anyone interested in learining dove magic...
