Alien Gear Holsters Cloak Tuck 2.0 vs 3.0 Inside the Waistband IWB Holster Series

The Alien Gear Holster’s Cloak Tuck series sets the bar for the concealed carry industry. As time moves on and guns become more advanced, so do our concealed carry holsters. With every successful holster product comes slight tweaks to their design to meet the demands of the people-in this case the concealed carrier. To best explain the differences between our Cloak Tuck 2.0 and the 3.0, let’s take a look at the materials used and most importantly, why we chose to use them in the first place.

Since our company’s inception, every IWB holster has been based on quality, concealability, and comfort. Any component we find unnecessary during the design process we trim. Any material we find helpful to the carrier we utilize.

The Cloak Tuck 2.0 and the Cloak Tuck 3.0 are both superior holsters to all other IWB holsters within the concealed carry industry. Both were designed with the concealed carrier in mind, and we chose to use only the highest-quality materials when building both holsters.

Before you write off the Cloak Tuck 2.0, you may want to hold off for the next few minutes. By the end of this blog, you may want to reconsider.

There’s a reason why we have sold so many of these handmade holsters. They are what carriers want and here’s why:

Alien Gear 2.0 vs. 3.0

1.) Comfort:

This element is the backbone (or the backing I should say) to the Cloak Tuck 2.0 and 3.0. Both are built with an ultra-soft layer of neoprene. Welcome to comfort zone.

2.) Concealability:

Both IWB holsters are ultra concealable. They are built to fit perfectly against your side and stay as flush to your body as possible. This allows for an unprintable carry, which is good news for you and bad news for criminals.

3.) Retention:

Both holsters will hold your firearm in place when you tighten the holster shell around your firearm. Simply adjust to your preferred retention with the turn of a few screws.

4.) Materials:

The differences between the 2.0 and the 3.0 come in the form of their materials. With the all-new 3.0, we have created a retention plate made of stainless spring steel. This, combined with a layer of ballistic nylon adds rigidity and strength to the holster.

Have you ever felt Alien Skin?

Buy a 3.0 and feel it with your own hands. Don’t worry-it’s not slimy or scaly (in fact, it’s quite the opposite). This layer of thermo elastomer adds retention and optimal drag to the 3.0. Plus it just looks cool.

The 3.0’s hardware has also been upgraded from its predecessors. The once-exposed hardware has been minimized and covered by the neoprene backing. This provides more comfort to the carrier.

The 2.0 may not have Alien Skin or the new retention plate and ballistic nylon core, but it does function very similarly to the 3.0. Both are concealable, comfortable, and secure.

One big similarity to both holsters is this:

5.) Customization

Would you like to adjust your holster’s ride height? Done. How about its cant? Easy. And the retention? Simple. Both the 2.0 and the 3.0 are capable of being fully adjustable. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver, the parts pack your order comes with, and a few spare minutes.

To adjust the ride height on both holsters, simply unscrew the holster’s clips and move them to the preferred holes. The cant (or angle) of the holster can be adjusted in the same way. Just move the clips up or down a hole, screw them into place and voilà! You’re good to go.

As I stated earlier, tightening or loosening the Boltaron shell adjusts the holster’s retention.

6.) Iron-Clad Triple Guarantee
