Product Description

Introducing the Brave Response Holster. This is our answer to everything that gets under our skin about concealed Carry these days. If you have the obligatory box of holsters and nothing really satisfies, this is for you.

  • It doesn’t have to be hooked or clipped to your belt, boot, or anything. The built-in waistband goes around your torso like a belt
  • As a waist band holster it can be as shallow or as deep of concealment as you want or as your pants allow
  • Its a one size fits all holster meaning that you only need to buy one and it will work for ALL your semi-automatic handguns
  • It holds up to 3 spare magazines along with the gun!!! (Or two spare magazines and a flashlight…)
  • It takes less time to put on and it conceals better without printing than any holster on the market
  • It fits any waist from 20 to 54 inches
  • The Brave Response Holster is made from heavy duty “SharkSkin” breatheable canvas and is lined with cotton poly next to the skin. Going Commando? This will still be comfortable and breatheable
  • The entire holster is machine washable
  • The holster has a built in forward cant for a smooth, fast, tactical draw
  • The magazine pouches feature an elastic that secures your magazine/flashlight tight so it doesn’t just sit loosely
  • Fully tuckable. Tuck in your shirt without worrying about printing or showing any belt clips or the like. Completely and 100% concealable underneath a fully tucked in shirt.

It Fits ALL Semi-Automatic handguns and most smaller revolvers;

That include ALL Semi-Automatic handguns from Glock, Smith and Wesson, Springfield, Sig Sauer, Browning, Desert Eagle, Kahr, Beretta, Ruger, Walther, FN-Herstal, Colt, Kimber, Heckler and Koch (H&K), C-Z, Steyr, Taurus, and 1911 style handguns. If you don’t see your gun manufacturer listed here, but it is a semi-automatic it WILL FIT.

Handgun Accessories;

  • The holster does NOT accommodate any firearms with trigger guard or tac rail mounted lights or lasers.

ALL YOUR GUNSThe Brave Response Holster’s patent pending pocket design has been carefully developed and tested to be able to accommodate all semi automatic handguns. So whether you are a Sig or a Glock or a Springfield or a Smith and Wesson, or any brand of 1911 or any of the other brands of handgun out there… (seriously, we took it to cabelas, and Scheels and we made sure we put EVERY SINGLE semi auto in it before we did anything else) Your handgun will fit perfectly in this holster. Our founders carry the Glock 27 double stack, Glock 42 single stack, Kimber 1911, Walther P99, FNX Tactical 45, SIG P226 Blackwater Edition, and H&K P30 all interchangeably in the same holster. We have found many Revolvers to be able to fit as well, (however, we have found that the large frame revolvers like the K frames and the Pythons do not fit) we will be developing a more extensive list of revolvers that do and don’t fit here in the coming months.
ALL YOUR UNIFORMSThe Brave Response Holster is self contained and you will find it is comfortably worn with gym shorts, jeans, slacks, a kilt, whatever…. The founder wears just his holster and skivvies in his waders fly fishing in the river. It is truly here to cater to your specific brand of crazy as it does his.
ALL THE TIMENO KYDEX, your body flexes and bends and sweats and moves. Kydex does not. Leather Does not. CCW holsters are supposed to be comfortable. How is this even possible with Kydex and leather? The answer is, it’s not… Kydex and leather are for OWB holsters. The Brave Response Holster is designed to fit close to the body and leave as little an impression as possible. We built this holster to provide a comfort barrier between you and the gun, while making sure not to add bulk. Our beta testers have been carrying full size handguns and extra mags with no printing and maximal comfort so it can be worn while out and about or in and relaxing. We really think you will be surprised at how it feels as it is our goal to encourage law abiding citizens to carry more often as we never know when the wolf will be at the door.
TOUGHNESSTough but tender, The Brave Response Holster has been designed using the highest quality “Sharkskin” Canvas at its core for longevity, breatheability, comfort, and sturdiness. We use the highest quality “No Snag” Industrial Velcro that ensures you are not ruining your clothes but that the holster is securely held around your waist. The elastic waistband has been chosen to further the lightweight feel of the holster but with the strength to last you.
VERSATILITYThe Brave Response Holster ships with an elastic waistband capable of fitting comfortably and securely on anyone with a 20″ – 55″ waist. This can be tucked if the holster is to be regularly worn by more than one person or the extra belt material can be removed and the edge of the belt singed with a lighter or match. The Brave Response Holster comes with removable retention strap. If you like retention – use it, if not- remove it. The Brave Response Holster is capable of carrying up to 3 magazines in addition to the one in the gun itself can also use any mag pocket for most small flashlights and pocket knives Because the Brave Response Holster can carry such a wide variety of handguns, you can get rid of the box of holsters and have one holster that is right for you and all your handguns.
BREATHABLENO LEATHER, Leather does not breathe now, it didn’t breathe when it was skin. Skin is designed for keeping liquids and other stuff inside the body. Our holster is designed to breathe. That way you can breathe, your gun can breathe, everyone can breathe, and that makes life comfortable. No more taking off your sopping wet leather and metal and hard plastic holster. You’ll find this holster keeps you much cooler as a result of less weight, less bulk and the most durable breatheable fabrics on the planet.
FLUIDITY OF TRAININGWe are a defensive training company first and foremost. Our students include private citizens, Military, law enforcement, and private armed security forces. This holster was built to enable you to protect your life. In a defensive situation you will lose the ability to perform fine motor skills so building a holster that is safe and comfortable for the 99.9999% of the time that you carry and effective and ready for that 1 in 300,000 chance of being a victim of violent crime. The patent pending pocket on the holster positions your firearm in a forward cant position to replicate your outside the waistband training holster that you wear to the range. This will aid you in a defensive situation as most of our students have never drawn from concealed until they are on the range with us. The Brave Response Holster will imitate the feel of your OWB training holster and enable you to have a faster response to an imminent threat. The forward cant also facilitates a clean and smooth draw with no hang ups or snags. Retention is removable at your discretion. The retention has been designed to instantly break away as you slide into shooters grip before the draw. The retention is hidden behind the gun in the perfect place for you to disengage it, but will maximize your ability to retain the weapon on your hip.

I got my holster today and wore it while riding my motorcycle. I wore it up a little higher and it did not bind or dig into my side. I have owned many holsters in the past and this one is by far the best. I almost forget it is even there. Thank you very much! – James in Louisville KY

I ordered the brave response holster. Best everyday holster on the market. Works with any clothes. Love it.  – Stuart in Highland UT

I have recently received my new Brave Holster. I must say this holster is unique, I like how a person can carry extra magazines and different size caliber firearms without switching to a different holster. This Concealed Carry Holster is the perfect holster for someone like me who works in high crime areas or someone who likes to hunt. With this holster, I feel like I’m prepare to protect my family in any environment. I highly recommend Brave holsters to be your choice for concealed carry holsters. -Patrick in Chicago (Current law enforcement and Firearm Instructor)

I love the holster. Very light weight, holds all three of my pistols of which are three different molds. I love that it doesn’t pull on my paints or shorts even wearing basketball shorts. Best holster I have ever owned.  – Bryan in Leavenworth KS

I bought two of your holsters. I’m very satisfied. They are very comfortable and the fit is good. Your product is awesome and I hope to be doing business with you again in the future.  – Fred in Arlington Hts IL

Holster is great. Solves some issues for carrying during summer when waistband carry is not always practical. Lightweight, but sturdy and secure. Fits snugly and subtly against the body. Great holster.  – Shelli in Valley Center KS

As an NRA and Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor I have a lot of holsters to show the class. When I showed your holster the interest was overwhelming. They all wanted to look at it and touch and feel it. They liked the idea of it being independent of your pants or belt. You can adjust it for high or low carry. Deep or shallow. Plus the mag holders right by the firearm was a plus. You can also use it for a mini compact all the way up to the 1911. I personally have used it for the last 5 days and am also impressed with it. It stays where you put it, is very stable and can be adjusted very easily. All in all on a scale of 1-10 I would give it a strong 9. Thanks for making an innovative product for now and the future.  – Gerald in Litchfield IL (Firearm Instructor)

I purchased my new holster because I was looking for something more comfortable for concealed carry. It is VERY comfortable! Also, it works great for all of my handguns and pistols. I have 2 revolvers and 2 semi autos.My Ruger KP95 is a large framed handgun and it carries comfortably. My .357 Magnus also carries quite comfortable with this holster. I basically replaced ALL my other holsters with this one. Thank you for a great design and the amazing comfort. I carry daily and was not always comfortable doing so until I got this holster.  – John in Tooele UT

I love my new holster. I hated to carry because it always drags my pants down. This solves that problem and provides space for spare clips. I highly recommend. – Glenn in Louisville KY

Like a lot of guys I’ve been in the hunt for the best conceal carry holster. The “best” is somewhat subjective, but let it suffice to say, if your holster isn’t comfortable or doesn’t conceal your weapon well, you’re probably not going to be carrying your weapon. That means you’re likely to be unprepared when the need arises. I’ve heard it said that your holster shouldn’t be comfortable, it should be comforting. After wearing the new holster, I can say with conviction, “Nonsense”. My new holster allows me to carry my Glock 23 with three full magazines while wearing just about any type of clothing. It’s so comfortable and concealable, I wear it everywhere I go. That’s the ultimate fulfillment of the comfortable AND concealable criteria. Well done! – Ken in Tigard OR

This holster is the most comfortable I’ve ever worn. After 28 years of law enforcement I can’t believe I find this holster now. I will continue caring my weapon. -Gerald in Indian Land SC

Best off duty/on duty holster I have ever owned. Soft, adjustable, concealable. THANKS! – Jim in Louisville KY

Thanks for shipping the holster so quickly! I shortened it just a little and it fits just right. It rides on the hip and follows the body without anything showing. Thanks again for such a high quality item! – Wilbur in Perkinston MS

I have tried many concealed carry holsters over the years. The problems has been different holsters for different dress/seasons. The brave response holster is quite comfortable. I have worn it with shorts, jeans, slacks with and without a coat. It fits my main carry piece and the forward cant is great. This will be my main holster. – Jim in Florissant CO

Got my holster and have put all my other holsters in the bottom dresser draw. Without a doubt the most comfortable concealed holster I have ever worn. Love the fact that you can carry two mags and a flashlight, although when carrying an extended mag it can poke you in the side a little; but still can’t be beat. For those other big guys worried that it might not fit, it has ample room in the belt to fit us; I’m 6’3″ and 290lbs. You have a winner as far as I’m concerned!!!!!!!! – David in Orange VA

I just received my holster and am getting used to it.. so far it is FANTASTIC.. I prefer inside the waistband and i have to say it is SO comfortable!!! I’ve set it up with 1 magazine, 1 flashlight and 1 folding knife. its going to take some practice drawing since I’m not used to the snap but I am liking it!! Thank you. – Robert in Madison SD

Normally I don’t write a review for a product I received online but I have to admit this is one of the best buys, functionally, monetarily and comfortably I have ever made. I had bought some of the traditional IWB holsters for the guns I owned but was limited by the pants I could wear because the gun belt was too large for several of my dress pants and slacks. With this holster its not even a secondary thought on what to wear or how to dress for the day. It had gotten to point ( I know how bad this sounds) that I would opt out of carrying my weapon because of the hassle of finding something to fit my holster rather than the holster fitting my needs. The design is well made and thought out to allow unrestricted carry and positioning of any gun I own. Well done and the one time cost to carry all of my guns is unbelievable. Highly recommended. – Lynn in Wichita KS

We tried them on and for the first time ever, I have a holster I can wear with my preferred clothing! We have purchased no less than 6 different styles if holsters trying to find one that works for me. I even have 2 very expensive leather purses specifically designed to carry and a lap bag also specifically designed for carry….none of which I have been able to feel secure using. I am a retired Marine and I am very happy with this purchase. I feel almost as safe as I did when in uniform. Oohrah! – Karen in Pensacola FL

    I’ve had this holster for a little over a week now, and it has been comfortable to carry in the South Texas heat. I’ve carried everything from small pistols like the Sig P230, up to the FN FiveSeven without issue. The snap release tab could be a bit longer as I did have some difficulty reaching it with full sized guns. I admit, I was skeptical at first, I thought the holster would end the day sliding down inside my pants, or that the fabric would get hot, but neither happened! Having the mag holders on the other side would be a plus, maybe make the holster slide on the waistband and have modular mag pouches? Over all a good holster.

  2. (verified owner):

    I have been using my new Brave Response holster for about 10 days now. I am a retired Police officer and this is by far the most comfortable holster I have owned and it works well with all of my handguns .40,.45,
    9mm, and 357 magnum.

  3. (verified owner):

    Love this holster very comfortable I switch out between my Taurus 9MM and the Bersa 380 both fit very nicely and snug and the holster feels good against my skin, very little printing if any, highly recommend this holster to all who want to carry with minimal print factor, get you one guys and gals you’ll be glad you did……

    My holster came in the mail on Saturday. My wife & I ride bicycles most evenings, and I usually try to get a few miles in at lunch. I was looking for something to wear under a t-shirt and inside bike shorts. This is it! I’ve carried my SR9C and my wife’s LC9/Crimson Trace so far and they both fit well. The Brave Response holster hasn’t moved while riding and is quite comfortable. Scott’s suggestion for movable mag holders is worth considering. Either way, this holster is a winner.

  5. (verified owner):

    Just tried my new holster and am not happy. Tried my RIA 1911 commander size and my Colt 1911 full size and found I could not get the snaps to snap together as they are too short, whether weapon was cocked or not. Saw somebody else had an issue with the straps. Holster is not cheap, pricewise, and this problem should have been engineered out before production. Will be returning.

  6. (verified owner):

    I was going to return my holster because I thought the straps were too short to snap together on my 1911’s, but found that the one strap is held by Velcro and is adjustable for length. Assumed incorrectly that it was sewn in like the short strap. I will be keeping my holster now and apologize for not catching this before writing a prior review. Versatility seems to be the hallmark of this holster.

  7. (verified owner):

    Received my holster two days ago. I did not have a chance to fit it to my weapon yesterday, but did today . It took all of 10 min. To fit my Walter PP in it. I wore it about eight hours so far it’s extremely comfortable with little or no printing. I wore while driving my truck ,and my wife’s car, We went shopping and then to a restaurant with friends . At this time I would happily recommend it to my friends. Going to try my para LDA 14 next.

  8. :

    I am a woman who has been searching for a comfortable concealed holster for sometime. All that I have tried have been too bulky and not very “concealing” with my Sig 9mm on my hip. This holster has fit that profile. It is so comfortable, there were times I forgot I had it on. As a woman, I don’t need anything more added to my hips! It is not “hot” to wear, nor does it feel sticky on the skin. Great product. I highly recommend this for the ladies.

  9. (verified owner):

    Got my holster and took off on a nine day trip wearing it for about 12 hours/day. This is easily the most comfortable IWB holster I’ve used. It is very secure on the body, conceals well with little printing and retains my weapon (Kimber stainless in .45) well. Excellent product.

  10. (verified owner):

    Have been using this holster since buying this October. Very, very comfortable and use it
    exclusively except when temps are real warm, I go to a pocket holster setup due to garment restrictions, just don’t care for IWB wear. Printing is about non-existent with this setup. It will be a favorite holster for anyone wanting a comfortable, inconspicuous setup. Recommendations: (agree with Scott) the fixed snap tab could be at least 1/4″ longer and stiffened even more(above and below snap) as I occasionally have trouble finding the tab and my thumb slides right over the top of it, forcing me to dig my thumb into the gap to unsnap using my Kimber Pro-carry 1911 in condition one. Rapid deployment is definitely hindered due to this, in my opinion. I also found that if a spare mag is carried in the first(most forward) holder, when crouching, the mag is pushed up pretty far out of the holder by your leg, so I utilize the second holder and the one most rearward as I also noticed the possibility that carrying a mag in the holder right behind the gun, may inhibit clean acquisition of the gun grip when attempting to unholster. My perceptions, anyway. Still, in all, a great unit and highly recommend.

  11. :

    Received my holster today. It is exactly as advertised. Very light and comfortable. It does fit a variety of weapons. I will add to this review after I have used it for a month.

  12. (verified owner):

    Holster is comfortable and works well with my xd40 but as far as carrying extra mags it don’t work. I have bent over while wearing it and had my spare mag fall out on the ground.

  13. (verified owner):

    I have been wearing my Brave-Response-Holster for a month now, and I want to say that for once this is a case of “truth in advertising”! The comfort level of the holster is the part that I am happiest with, the fact that it carries your pistol in a deep concealment position, just adds to the value of this purchase. I have carried a pistol for work most of my adult life, and carrying concealed with an uncomfortable holster was just part of the equation. Not to mention that you needed a different holster for each model of pistol that you found yourself being tasked with carrying. I am happy to say that I have been able to carry comfortably with several different models and barrel lengths. I am confident that I will be able to carry with comfort, any pistol in my CCW rotation. I never thought I would be able to say that…
    Some reviewers have said that they could not draw their pistol with the speed that they wanted. This is “not” a speed draw holster, it is a “deep concealment” holster, and one that is also very comfortable. If it is speed that you are looking for, then you need an outside of your waistband holster to facilitate that. This holster is for those who want to be able to Concealed Carry with a comfortable rig, that allows you to carry spare mags or a flash light, or both even, and not have to worry about having your gun print, pull your pants down or have you constantly readjusting yourself trying to move your gun into less painful position. I know because I have lived with all of those difficulties myself.
    I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to being able to carry in much more concealed comfort into the future. If you are on the fence about making this purchase, just do it, you will not be sorry. And your sore body will thank you also!

  14. (verified owner):

    Perfect holster for those of us that typically wear shorts and t-shirt most of the time. I south Florida I rarely wear a belt and pants. This holster is comfortable, efficient, and effective. Best holster on the market for most any handgun out there. At times I carry my full size Glock 19 and have no problems concealing. Great job.

  15. (verified owner):

    I have been using it for a couple of days so far and it is very comfortable. I like the fact that I can raise it when using restroom, so doesn’t fall on the ground in plain sight of others or have to take off and place somewhere in the stall. I have tried it with several of my guns and it works, really wish it would work for my 3″barreled Ruger GP100 but alas it doesn’t. However, I want to let you know that it does work with my Bersa 380 Firestorm even with it’s LaserLyte in front of the trigger guard mounted laser. I recommend this to others to try.

    Not worth $70

  17. (verified owner):

    Received the holster very quick and tried it immediately, I believe this is the best and most comfortable holster I have owned
    and I have many others. I would recommend this holster for someone who truly wants to conceal carry. I carry my Sig P238 and my
    Glock 45cal.

  18. (verified owner):

    Between the Military and my years in Law Enforcement I have carried a concealed firearm most of my life and have tried just about any/all holsters that have ever been made for that proposes. I am an OWB paddle holster diehard fan and have always had the same old problems when wearing shorts or just a T-shirt, untill now. First of all my Brave Response Holster arrived fast and I could tell right off that it is a quality item. I have used it with shorts, jogging paints, a dress suit, and under a T-shirt. It is comfortable, easy to put on, holds any of my handguns securely, and makes it easy to draw as well. I dont know how I ever got along with out it. Every One with a CCW needs one of these holsters no matter what your favorite way is to carry your gun. From my 3″ 1911 to my FNX Tactical, the Brave Response Holster insurers that i am never with protection, no matter what I am wearing……A MUST HAVE…..

  19. (verified owner):

    If I’d tried it before buying, I probably would have passed it up. It prints about 70% of the time with floppy shirts w/a glock 27 and 2 mags. Front 2 mag holders let mags rise up and have to be pushed back down. Rear holder does better. I usually try to avoid thumb-break straps, tho this one works OK so far. Putting it on works best with the ladies easy-on bra method—do the wraparound in front then rotate the business part around to the desired position. Re-holstering almost requires taking it off to snap the thumb-break over the gun. I will use it with my bib overalls and an over-shirt and go with my Uncle Mikes on a belt for OWB carry.

  20. :

    i switched to IWB carry early last year,trying different holsters including the new 3.0 holster from a certain popular company, which as a kydex holster it works well with my jeans, but for christmas i receved the Brave Response Holster,and immediately tried it on with my every day carry sidearm, its amazing, i love how my sidearm fits, how comfortable it is, i havent yet tried carrying extra mags or anything in the 3 pouches yet but i plan too. I fight train at home everyday and the Brave Response works great under gym clothes,elastic waist bands, sweatpants etc..all work great with this holster. I have defiantly recommended it to many of my CCL friends and even friends in local law enforcement.this is a simple idea but so versatile its unreal.I would recommend this to anyone thinking about buying a great quality concealed holster.and so far the weight of different calibers and sizes hasnt seemed to be any issue with comfort!!!! i carry on my riding mower and yard work and NEVER any secure issues..my advise ..I great Investment!!!

  21. (verified owner):

    I received the holster and immediately put it to work. Tractor work. On and off the tractor for several hours. Hand digging, front end loading and backhoe work. You don’t realize how much you contort as you spin around the seat and maneuver past the hydraulic controls getting on and off the tractor. In all that time I never felt the holster move… in fact I almost forgot I had it on.

    The next day was regular office work during the day. Again, no slipping or discomfort. Up and down to the printer and talking to customers, in and out of the car and then recording a band after hours. That means a lot of moving microphones… especially around the drum set. I even had to crawl around under a piano. I’ll definitely get a spare holster. I wouldn’t want to be without it.

  22. (verified owner):

    Just got the holster.slipped my fully loaded m&p 40 into it.put it on and was amazed. Comfortable and held it snug.no flopping around.great holster impressed i am.

  23. :

    The most comfortable holster I own. I got it and tried it with my Glock 21, the biggest pistol I own, and it was able to put it where it didn’t poke me when I sat or drove, yet was also where I wanted it to be in case I needed to use it. I have also used it with my FNX45, like in your photos, with the extra mags and it was fine. Reholstering is not an issue if you’re talking about needing to use a firearm. Yes, it’s a bit of a pain when practicing the draw at the range, reholstering, that is. And yes it takes additional time to reach across one’s body to get a spare mag. Doesn’t bother me and if it does I will simply wear the mags the way I always wore them prior, on my belt weak side. My point is that this holster, like a compression shirt, makes you and your weapon into a tight unit and the difference in not having that weight on one’s belt is a big difference and I like it. Worth the money. I might by another one to keep just in case.

    Received Holster today and haven’t taken it off since it came. Very comfortable, very little printing and have already been to town with scrub pants on and went back out w/ shorts. No one ever noticed a thing. Glock 23 and extra mag almost forgot I was wearing. Love it so far. Will update as time goes by. By the way, I am 6’1″ and about 265 lbs. never been this confident carrying concealed.

    Most comfortable holster I’ve owned. The thing I like the most about it is it’s independent from your pants or shorts. I’ve owned dozens of other IWB and OWB holsters that attach to your pants or belt and they were constantly sagging my pants down unless I tightened my belt to the point of cutting my circulation off. The material is very comfortable against bare skin and holds my pistol very close to my body to eliminate printing. It’s also very well made with good materials.

    Fantastic holster. I have been through hundreds of dollars worth of holsters and have resulted to carrying owb because no iwb holster was comfortable to me. Enter the Brave Response Holster. I now carry everyday iwb. I wear shorts to work with no belt and can carry. Jeans, slacks, tucked in shirt, untucked shirt. Doesn’t matter. Not only is it the most comfortable holster I’ve worn but it is very cool in the summer. I’m from Mississippi so hundred degree days with this against my body have not deterred me from carrying. Not to mention it allows you to carry any handgun you want! Five stars!

    I tried this holster for a while as it came but found that since the Velcor was just as wide as the belt that the corners dug in and pinched. Yep I am a fat boy. Also since the belt is soft it tended to fold over at my gut and the firearm was wobbly on the belt. And seriously I don’t know anyone that carries magazines on the same side as the firearm

    I have since modified the holster by removing the belt strap completely and adding 3 belt loops to the outside of the holster (belt loops are from old jeans). I wear a gun belt through these three loops with the buckle around the back left of my waist. Yes the belt goes on the outside of the holster and does a remarkable job of stabilizing the fire arm – no holder strap needed. The firearm sits very tight to my body and does not print at all, ever. It still draws nice and smooth and re-holstering is no more difficult than with the stock holster.

    The next thing I did was to install a sweat shield above the holster on the back to prevent sweat from getting on the firearm grip and to prevent the grip from digging into my side when I am not wearing a T-shirt.

    I wish I could include a picture as these mods, for me take this holster from Average to Perfect. (Manufacturer – There is a tip here)

    SO I thought it was all hype and that it couldn’t possible be as good as all the reviews. I was 100% wrong. This is the most comfortable holster for all day deep concealment I’ve ever worn. Absolutely works with shorts, pants, dress pants, T-Shirts, sweats, gym shorts, you name it. I’ll not be without mine ever again. Thank you for such an excellent design Brave Response! (NEXT, detachable mag holders to velcro in place on the other side of the strap like the retainer snap on the holster itself 😉

    I was expecting a delay in delivery after ordering the holster but it came quicker than anticipated; thank you being so prompt. I am a fairly large man, 5′ 10″, 270 lbs and rarely wear belted pants, preferring suspenders, and this is perfect for me. It absolutely does not imprint with anything I wear. My wife is good at picking out imprinted guns on people and I wore it all day without telling her I had it on and she didn’t notice it, even after I showed her the gun, a full size S&W 9mm. I also wanted to carry an example of my engraving work to show folks but decided to keep this one hidden and carry a smaller one for show-and-tell. The holster is so comfortable that I actually forgot I had it on and am considering purchasing one for my police officer son.

    I’ve had this holster for a couple of months now and it works OK, but I have some issues with it. I’m a heavy guy, 5’8, 245, and I wear my pants belted tight. I’ve tried several different weapons in it: Kahr .45, S&W model 59, Walther PPQ. The problems I have encountered are, 1) the weapon pushes into my side so far that it is difficult to get a solid grip on it for a good draw and I tend to pinch my side against the weapon when drawing. 2) the Kahr, although small, has sharp edges on the grip and rear sights that quickly become uncomfortable against my skin, the Model 59 is even worse. The PPQ is more rounded and allows for a great deal more comfort. 3) It has been a challenge to find a position where the weapon is easy to get to but doesn’t ride directly on my hip bone, which also becomes uncomfortable quickly. 4) when I get it in a position where the weapon is high enough to grip, the velcro belt tends to ride up above the top of my pants in the front making it visible. I have tried wearing a T-shirt under it and that helps some. On the positive side, none of the weapons imprinted, it makes restroom breaks in public restrooms much more secure than a holster attached to pants or belt and it holds the weapon securely even without the retaining strap. For someone of my build, a panel that extended up behind the weapon, between it and and my body, would make the rig much easier to draw from and keep the edges of the grip and slide from digging into my flesh. I have had some progress in finding positioning that will keep it from grinding on my hip bone and I think this problem can be overcome. Overall, not a holster that I hate, but not what I was hoping for,

    I am an unshapely person with virtually no waist.

    This holster FITS me and my firearm!

    Having its own integrated belt design, and NOT being attached to my pants belt, is a mind soothing comfort as I have a concern about my pants falling off! It works for me work nicely just as a strap on, non-concealed holster. A very nice two-for!

    The ordering process was outstanding and USA Firearms kept me updated through the process very nicely all the way to delivery. I value good customer contact (that you don’t have to initiate!)

    This holster is the one I have been searching for, for quite some time. I am a very new owner of the holster and have not had much experience with it for a long term comfort and use perspective, but, it snugly and securely fit my firearm (which has not been the case over and over) and should fit most any other too! I am so impressed and pleased with the results so far, I had to put in an early, “THANKS”.

    The holster is great for wearing gym clothes
    But when you work at a place that don’t allow weapons inside. Taking it out and putting it back in holster can be tricking

    That’s why I wear alien holster for work clothes and this for gym or leisure clothes wear I don’t have to re-holster

    If they can figure out a way to re-holster without having to undue your pants then I would wear it all the time
    Then it would get a 5

    So far I’m pleased with this holster.

    One test I performed I strapped on holstered with my Glock 36 outside my running shorts to see how secure and comfortable the holster would be relying on the support of the rig only while performing my high metabolic finisher workout.

    Impressive!! The holster did “jiggle” a little bit. However considering it’s on an elastic band and I was going all out this is truly impressive. Plus it was absolutely comfortable. Once movement ceased I couldn’t even tell I had it on.

    Tested it behind the waistband at 2 and 4 o’clock positions. Totally comfortable and secure.

    Tested it higher up around the torso. I feel that wearing a t-shirt is imperative to avoid band slipping lower and avoid “rub rash” with movement. Agian very comfortable and secure.

    My wife wore hers to work holstered with her S&W J Frame. She remarked that it was totally comfortable even in a sitting position.

    I have noticed at least one review criticizing mag pouches on strong side. Even in the 4 o’clock position “for me” this posed no problem whatsoever.

    Very pleased, I highly recommend adding this holster to your personal protection gear.

    I’ve been wearing this holster now for over two months 12+ hours a day. Temps from 90 to 30 degrees. Dress work cloths or just jeans to elastic top shorts. This holster works very well and is super comfortable. I actually forget its there!!! Good job with design and construction. I will be continuing to ware every day and will post at 6 months and a year..

    Thank you
