Cloak Tuck 3.5 IWB Holster Questions

Q. What’s the difference between the Cloak Tuck 3.0 and 3.5?

A. We’ve made a number of upgrades between the 3.0 and 3.5. Here are just a few:

  • Breathable Coolvent Neoprene
  • Toolless holster clips - Zero hardware!
  • Edge bound to prevent snags, discomfort
  • Moisture-wicking technology
  • Slightly narrower footprint


Q. Can I upgrade my 3.0 to the 3.5?

A. Absolutely! If your 3.0 is within our 30-Day Test Drive, go to our returns/exchanges page and follow the directions to exchange. We only ask that you pay the difference between the two holsters.


Q. What type of retention does this holster offer?

A. The 3.5 offers a level 1 retention which is friction and gravity. This is reinforced by our spacers that you can loosen or tighten to your personal retention requirements. The shell of the 3.5 is molded to your Specific firearm, and the back of your firearm lays against texturized Alien Skin material.


Q. Is this holster available for revolvers?

A. Not quite yet, but we are working on it right now! In the meantime, we holster a pretty hefty selection of revolvers with our Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB! (http://aliengearholsters.com/search-by-gun)


Q. What type of holster clips are available for this product?

A. We have your choice of O, C, J and standard nylon clips available. Take your pick!


Q. Does the new holster require Loctite?

A. Yes we do recommend using Loctite on the 3.5, but with the new upgraded clips, you will only need it on the four screws on the shell.


Q. For warranty replacements, are we offering an upgrade?

A. For rare circumstances we will consider this. Please give our friendly customer service a call to discuss what your options are at (208) 215-2046.


Q. Is it still going to work with the 3.0’s Steel clips or leather loops?

A. Any clips of any type from the 3.0 Cloak Tuck IWB will not work with the 3.5. The clips of the 3.5 are a whole new design that do not require tools, screws or hardware for making cant and ride height adjustments.

Q. How much smaller is this holster exactly?


A. The 3.5 is smaller than the Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster, but slightly larger than the ShapeShift 4.0 IWB Holster.
