Rated 4.9 out of 5 stars. Based on 3899 Reviews
I have carried with other holsters and my close friends told me about alien gear and talked me into getting one for my springfield 45 xds and I will never use another itwb holster for the price well worth the buy and the forever warranty priceless yall keep up the good work and customer service yall will have my business and every one I can convince.
Extremely happy with this product! Well thought out constructed from quality materials. I prefer to carry in a cross-draw arrangement, and the Cloak Mod OWB works perfectly in this application. The weapon cant is adjustable and places the grip at a good angle. Being able to easily adjust weapon retention makes "fine tuning" the holster easy. Consistent draw and re-holstering. The holster rides solidly and is very comfortable. A most definite double thumbs up for this rig !!!
This thing is just awesome. I ordered a single and a double for my G27 and brother, let me tell you these are sweet! The construction is solid, The all-in-one design idea for the alan key is genius, and the versatility is endless! Down side - This does tend to be a little "thick" for IWB with a double stack mag. IWB should be good for single stacks or a 5.7 mag. Anything thicker is a bit much. Never-the-less, I use mine for OWB and they are wonderful. Still waiting for my double attachment and paddle / slide stuff, but all in due time. This is a wonderful product with a solid build quality.
I was somewhat skeptical when I purchased this IWB holster for my Glock 27, thinking that a holster for this modest price would be mid-grade at best. Boy! was I wrong! This is by far the most comfortable holster I own! For anyone with surgical scars or a little extra weight, or both, "comfort" is a word rarely associated with IWB holsters. Try one of "Alien Gear's" holsters and you will be pleasantly surprised not only with the comfort but also the quality and attention to details (ie; spare parts). A great holster at a great price! Just, Wow! thanks guy's!
I ordered my new shell (already had an IWB holster for my CZ 40cal) on Friday & received it on Monday. Was slightly nervous due to the photo not matching what I ordered (with laser sight) but happy when it showed up. The shell is a perfect fit for the gun. The shell was an easy swap from my 40 cal to the much smaller 9mm. Probably be buying an OWB for the 40 because of my size it's a bit to much to hide.
Received my 3.0 today, a little skeptical due to price, this is the last holster I will purchase. So comfortable from the first time I put it on, and I carry a full size sig sauer sp2022 40 cal, you can't tell I have it on, unlike competitors on the market. Another plus is excellent service, super fast shipping, ordered it on Friday at my mail box on that Monday, Don't ponder if to buy or not, you need to buy this holster.
This holster feels great, wears easy, and is easy to reach. I have worn it at 4:30, 4, and even 3:30 with a hooded sweatshirt. Ive had a under tucked underneath it and had it on my skin, both were just fine. Adjustment is great and the retention out of the package was great. Very happy with my purchase, thank you Alien Gear! (My son loves the keychain too, I think I will have to get another one for myself)
Recieved this mag carrier set up about 4-5 days ago. Have worn it everyday so far owb. Just wore it today iwb for the first time. Takes some getting used to iwb. But nothing you can not get used to. Its very versitile being able to convert from iwb to owb in a flash. Adjustable ride height and cant adjustments. Also different clip styles come with it. Deffinatly worth the money. You get what you pay for. High quality product that takes the place of at the very least two different styles of mag carriers.
This is a review if my initial impressions of the AlienGear mag holder. I have only had this for a day, so I cannot speak to the long term durability and usability, but my initial impressions are very good. Right out of the box, the adjustment was very simple and intuitive. As I am a man, I hate reading instructions, but I was able to quickly figure out how to switch to different clips, change the orientation of the clips, and adjust the holder to fit my magazine. It will take a few days of adjustment until I get to the perfect spot of retention, not so loose that the magazine falls out, but not so tight that I can't easily get it out, but this is to be expected. It even includes an Allen wrench with a storage spot in the magazine body. At first I was concerned that the piece you push down to switch belt clips would get pushed inadvertently and it would fall off my belt, but AlienGear thought of that and includes a locking piece to hold it in place. As it is very early in the production, apparently there are a few pieces not quite ready to go out, which AlienGear explained in a note that came with my carrier. They will apparently ship these out later. I appreciate that they made it a priority to get the carrier out in a manner which I can start using it, and will complete my order later instead of holding the whole order up.
At first I was a little bit hesitant on purchasing a iwb holster for the simple fact that I'am a bigger guy. However I went against my better judgement and decided to just try it out I mean after reviewing the guarantee and return policy by aliengear I didn't have anything to lose. Well I'm am completely glad that I decided to try it out not only did it work for me it was also a perfect fit. When they say you don't even realize you're wearing it they are absolutely right!! No complaints what so ever with this product it's just a overall lightweight great fitting holster that gives me a piece of mind when carrying my smith .40 around I went as far as showing it off to a friend and had him convinced within seconds he decided to purchase one for himself. I would absolutely recommend this holster to anybody thinking about it.
I have been trying to get this right... tried different weapons with different holsters and this Tuck 3.0 is the most comfortable of anything else I've tried, including the Tuck 2.0. I almost cannot feel it on. The next best thing is that it's painless to upgrade when you get a new weapon. FIVE STARS, multiple thumbs up and a number of smiling faces.
I love Alien Gear!! I own numerous IWB and OWB holsters. Was excited when I heard they was coming out with a mag holster. Received it yesterday and couldn't wait to try it. First off the quality is like their holsters....TOP NOTCH!! It was super easy to set up, will hold multiple mag sizes, (set mine up for Glock 22/19/26/27) and material was like their holsters, rugged and strong. Like the holsters, it was comfortable to wear and I forgot it was there. Keep in mind I'm a bigger guy. Only down fall I have is it thick. They have done every step they could to take the size down, you can tell in the design, but it's still a little big. I usually get a size bigger on the pants I wear, as a lot of us do, to fit my IWB more comfortable. But with the addition of the mag carrier I'll probably need to go 2 sizes as they are snug now. Still a great product and I'd recommend them to anyone!! I'll soon be ordering more for the other mag sizes I need. Hopefully they will come out with a shell exchange for the mag carriers too.
I've been using the cloak tuck 3.0 with my M&P Shield and the tuck OWB for my CZ P-09 for over a year now and I love them both. You can't beat the quality and cusomizability of their holsters. Every time a friend or coworker or anyone talks about starting to conceal carry I tell them about Alien Gear without a doubt. The trading shells is so nice, and it was super easy when I swapped them out.
A few years ago when "Alien gear" was a newer company I stumbled apon them while looking for an iwb holster for my new 1911. Their triple guarantee sold me, almost instantly. At the time there was only the 1.0. I ordered it thinking I'd give it a try. When I received it, I knew I had made the right choice. I started spreading the name alien gear to all my co workers who all were looking for iwb holsters as well. Not a single complaint from any of us. In fact they all absolutely loved and still love the alien gear holsters. Being in law enforcement type career, it's nice to be comfortable while carrying. I've used the 1.0 holster till today. It's still got a lot of life into it, but upgraded to a Glock, and wanted to upgrade to the 3.0 holster. I know I will get many years of comfortable conceal carry from it. I truly respect and am loyal to alien gear. Thank you for your great product.
Ordered the belt slide for my 9mm Shield with Viridian laser sight and one for another pistol. I've been wearing the Shield one every day all day for a month now and find it quite comfortable and secure. We all go through a lot of holsters but I don't see wanting to replace this one very soon (honest!). It's that comfortable. The only problem I've had was tonight. Got up from my chair and discovered one of the belt attachment screws fell out. Couldn't find it but used the extra parts they graciously ship with the holsters. I would like to see longer screws for additional thread engagement. The longest one Alien Gear includes in the generous extras bag isn't long enough in my opinion. Until then, check your screw tightness monthly or perhaps loctite them? These OWB holsters are a heck of a bargain for the quality you get. Thanks Alien Gear!
Really solid product at first impression. I ordered Tuesday afternoon at is shipped to the SouthEast US by Friday. Easily adjustable and as comfortable as everyone says it is. Customer support responded to all my questions before my purchase in a timely manner. On day one it seems that this holster is everything it is advertised to be.
Just received my new combo pack and the cloak dock. Great holsters and this dock is very sweet! I have 4 Alien gear holsters now and these are the only holsters I trust when carrying my firearms. Extremely well built and very comfortable. Looking forward to mounting the cloak dock in my truck to see how it works. Thanks Alien Gear for making such a great line of products. My next buy will be a mag carrier
I was told this was going to be 4-5 days before shipping just the holster and 7-10 days if I did the holster/mag pouch combo (which I did). I ordered around 2 p.m. on a Wednesday and it arrived at 12:30 on a Friday. So much for that lead time! I've only had a chance to do the initial inspection but everything looks great so far. I can't wait to get home from work to get it all set up for myself and test it out.
First off, I ordered my Cloak Tuck 3.0 on Saturday November the 26th and received it Monday November the 28th. TWO DAYS and Thanksgiving weekend. Second, this more comfortable than my OWB holster. One word of warning put the holster where you want it, once put on it is difficult to move, to me that is a good thing. Thank You, for an awesome product.
The quality is excellent, this is my first belt to this standard. Usually spend 40-50 bucks on what's at the department store. But this belt is a complete game changer. I don't see ever needing to buy again unless I lose or gain weight but if I do this is the belt! Have already recommended to 10 people.
I bought the combo set almost a year ago. I carry very often and the quality and comfort is as great now as it was the day I first got them. I am in the process now of outfitting myself with more Alien Gear for my other weapons. I would love to see shoulder harness and ankle options from Alien Gear someday! Keep up the great work!
Not only is the holster the most comfortable IWB I have had, it is also the best as far as retention. I wear the holster even when I go to the gym. Make sure the retention screws are snug and that is all it takes. I even lay on the bench and don't have to worry about it falling out. On another note, I love AG customer service. I had a 2.0 and the fiber inner layer cracked causing a crease down the back. I called them and their reply was, "not a problem, we'll get you a new back in the mail...or you can upgrade to the 3.0 back" which I did. Never had anymore issues.
I cannot tell you how impressed I am with this company. The products are Great and their customer support is second to none. I've pretty much purchased everything they have for my Glock 19 and their products are Quality! The belt, Cloak 3.o, Cloak Mod Holster, Cloak Docks, and now their mag holders. I'm impressed with the value you get for your money and not to mention its all made in the good ole USA! It's so refreshing to get good service anymore and I want to thank you for it. Kudos to you Alien Gear. Keep up the good work.
I purchased this holster for my Glock G30S to supplement my IWB holster. This has become my go to holster when carrying under a light jacket. I use the paddle so it's easy to remove if necessary. I find that the holster holds the gun very secure and the adjustability allowed me to tune it to just the right tension and angle for my draw.
Awesome holster! This is the most comfortable holster I have for iwb 3:30-4:00 I was skeptical at first,especially at the price point,but after carrying with this holster I've become a believer.I EDC a Glock 23. Weight is distributed very well and no "hotspots"it's so comfortable I've fallen asleep on the couch quite a few times with my gun and this holster on! If your thinking about buying one do it!
This is, by far, my favorite IWB holster and the best one I own. It takes a little getting used to because of how the clips are mounted and swivel, and because it's a little wider than my other holsters. But once you do, you'll never go back to another one. The build quality is great. I wear it every day and have no complaints whatsoever. It's comfortable against bare skin or over a shirt.
