I have bought three holsters from alien gear and have been nothing but happy with the product. I wear my holster everyday for 12+ hours and not once can i complain about it. They are comfortable and sometimes i forget it is even there. I have one for my revolver, sub compact, and compact all fit great. i have even used there free shell program which was great and painless. I work at a major gun retailer and i recommend alien gear to all my costumers who are looking for a high quality holster and a nice price. Thanks again alien gear for making things painless , having a great product, and great costumer service.
Like most guys that carry, I've got a box of holsters at home. Some are better than others and most are very disappointing. I live in warm weather and I had almost given up on carrying because none of the holsters I had could conceal very well when I wear light clothing. The last IWB holster I tried was not comfortable and would go completely flat after the gun was drawn. One of my co-workers shared a Facebook post for this Alien Gear holster and recommended it. I was surprised at how comfortable it is! Its width distributes weight and belt tension evenly over a wide area and the holster doesn't slide around or dig in to you. I like this holster so much, I'm back to carrying almost all the time again.
I had purchased a cloak tuck 3.0 for my glock 19 came to realize it was a little uncomfortable to conceal it so I purchased a a shell for my xds and I thought it was a little off on the fit of it so I emailed customer service that the fit was off and not knowing they took it upon themselves and sent me a different one, the fit on that is great. all I can say is that they are true to their word on the no b.s. warranty and that I will be a returning customer thanks for going out of your way.
I am a seasoned gun owner and after much research decided to give Alien a chance. My exceptional experience began the moment I placed my order. The website is easy to navigate and the Customer Service Representative I spoke with could not have been more helpful. My holster arrived several days early, a very pleasant surprise! The holster is constructed very well and comfortable; just as advertised. I highly recommend Alien!
Great holster. Great quality, price, looks. Extremely comfortable! Great service! Fast shipping! I tightened the Allen screws a bit when I first got the holster out of the package. One was coming loose, but never had a problem with it. I'm a small-framed female who feels it's my responsibility to be able to protect myself, my family, and innocent lives around me if it becomes necessary. I love the feel of this holster, easy to put on with the peace of mind that it won't fall out and won't dig into your back all day. Lightweight, very safe, easily concealable. Great design!
I ordered it and received it on time. With every thing that was promised. No defects and wasnt a rush job. It Is now my EDC holster. The warranty and shell swap idea is a great idea. And your staff was very prompt to answer my questions. Ill do an unbox video and test run with it soon. Thanks again Josh Harris!
After 8 months as my primary carry holster: Working in an automotive shop (sales) I found this holster to stay concealed throughout my ten hour shift with my shirt tucked in. (Light weight under armor style) Worn out doors with cargo shorts in the humid heat of Texas fishing. To blue jeans at semi formal events. Great holster, fits well, resist finish rust due to body sweat, comfortable, and 100% assurance that your fire arm will not fall out. My only con would be that the holster will "walk" from your 4:00 o'clock to center back after repeatly sitting/bending through out the day. Can be a pain if you practice from your 4:00 o'clock all the time.
I have worn my Alien Gear holster since the day I was issued my concealed carry license. Every day, all day, with no exception (Take it off to shower, sleep and swim only) I have had in the summer, the pouring heavy rain. Activities include...jogging, chopping wood, throwing bails of hay, shoveling, push ups and more. This holster is insanely comfortable. My only advice is, find the right place on your body to wear it and fasten down the screws with some sort of nail polish (less permanent) or Red Lock Tight (permanent) because the screws will eventually back out. However Alien Gear tells you this in the manual and gives you extra screws. Anyways, well worth the money!!! These are amazing holsters!!!!
Just got this holster. Out of the package it looks well made and they give you extra hardware which is great. I'm not a big guy. When I put it on I couldn't even get the gun out of the holster without holding down the holster. The Alien skin or whatever they call it is way to grippy when you are wearing it. When the holster is off you can pull the gun out just fine but when it's on and cinched up with a belt is where the problem is. Customer support is great and the kydex and hardware are good so I'm going to get the one with a leather backing no rubber.
First off, I love the AG IWB holsters and use them for EDC and trust them 100% as they have never failed. The OWB I ordered earlier this year in my opinion is not par for the company. The leather loops allow my Glock to pull away from my body way to far and therefor doesn't feel secure and moves around. My belt is a extremely firm 5.11 belt and not some soft pliable POS. Retention for the firearm itself is great. Im gonna try the new MOD OWB to hopefully see improvement.
I received my holster 2 days head of schedule. After opening the package and reviewing the holster, I removed the holster I was wearing. The Cloak Tuck 3.0. comford is incredible, my XDM40 fits perfect. I'm glad I made the purchase. I'm going to order another one for my 9mil. People, this holster is worth twice the price your paying!!! THANK YOU ALIEN GEAR
I've been wearing this for awhile now and I've yet to have a problem. The best holster is one you don't even notice it's there and this one does the job so well, I have to stop myself from checking if it's still there in public! When it arrived the leather loops I ordered weren't in the package, but a quick 10 minute phone call later and they were on their way! Great customer service, gotta admire a company that stands by their product and their customers. Just put in another order for my Glock, and I know it will be fantastic. Thanks AG!
I ordered my Cloak Tuck 3.0 for my Gen 4 Glock 23. The first positive part was shipping time, I received my holster in 3 days. Second positive part, when i took it out of the packaging i was expecting a process of putting it together and such. That wasn't the case at all. I will adjust the cant before i wear it again. The retention was spot on. I cleared and made safe my weapon. Inserted my weapon into the Cloak Tuck 3.0. Turned it upside down and shook it. It was perfectly secure. Third and most important is wearing it. I wore it sitting in my recliner, my car, at a restaurant, walking around Lowes and finally an hour shopping at wally world. It is the most comfortable holster I've ever used. My wife even commented that I seemed more comfortable as she watched me walking around. My only suggestion, and i received this bit of advice from a facebook friend. Go buy some "loc tite blue" after you're positive on your cant and positioning. This way your screws don't work loose so easily. I would recommend anyone that has a conceal carry permit to give them a try. The warranty is my final positive. Alien Gear stands behind their stuff.
excellent service ... i only used the website and it was very easy to follow. they made it easy using the tip for sizing. but i wish i read the small details when it was asking which size belt clip i wanted ... my mistake i thought i was being asked the size of belt...not knowing i need to get a belt separate. but still 5*****
I have to say I'm very impressed with the quality & the ability to customize this holster to your needs. Im going to buy a shell for my 1911 next. My only issue is I'm used to wearing my gun up front in a cross draw position, but I was able to get used to wearing this holster pretty easily. I have recommended Alien Gear to many friends. If your thinking of buying a holster you will be very satisfied.
I've had the cloak side OWB for an XDs for the last 5 weeks and couldn't be happier with the product. I have too many expensive holsters that don't give the support that this one does. Just ordered a shell for my 3" Colt, I'm sure it will support that little chunky fire breather just fine. Thanks guys
Been wearing around the house for breaking because my ccw are not back yet. But as I have learned for my colt 1911 it does not need no break in time. On my next gun I will be buying another and for all guns from here on out. Just can't wait till you all come out with mag holders for single and double stack mags.
Ive used the Clock Tuck 3.0 for both my SW Shield 9mm and my Officers 1911. Ive actually convinced several friends and family to purchase AlienGear because of how much I liked it for my Shield. Long story short, I plan on keeping the one for my 1911, but it certainly is not as snug of a fit. May just be due to firearm design making it more difficult to get a snug fit. Either way, the gun can "rock" back and forth in the holster like it isnt REALLY latched in well, even with the smallest spacers inserted. Also, the extended thumb safety (stock on the firearm) snags on the holster when holstering and can actually turn OFF the safety without me knowing. Not good. But now I am aware of it I just have to holster my gun with my thumb blocking the safety so it doesnt snag, but still. PERFECT for the Shield, definitely iffy for the 1911. Never used another holster for the 1911 though so maybe its a difficult breed to fit just right. Shield is basically a box... no funny angles.
I ordered the 2 Holster Combo, one for myself, and the other a gift for my Dad. We both recently purchased the Taurus PT111 G2 and wanted a way to carry concealed. I spent months researching numerous holsters on the market with no success as to the perfect one. My search criteria was simple: It had to be Concealed, Comfortable, and easily Accessible. Then came the IWB Cloak Tuck 3.0! I ordered on a Monday and had it by Thursday morning. Not only did Alien Gear meet my criteria, they exceeded my expectations. Outstanding job guys!!!
This is my first time buying an in the waste band holster. But right from the start Alien gear went above and beyond with the product. It took 4 days to receive my new holster. Upon opening the package I see its neatly packaged. The holster is amazing, the 3.0 is by far the most comfortable holster I have ever worn in or out of the waste band! I give them an A++ And will continue to use Alien Gear for all my holster needs!!
I have used a number of holsters through out the years and I have yet to find one as comfortable as my thigh holster. Then a friend told me about Alien Gear. I decided to take a look and really liked the design and decided to give it a shot. No longer in law enforcement and working as a chef putting in long hours and having a ccw my Alien Gear is my new favorite. Even with as much as I move in the kitchen, it stays put and nobody even knows I'm carrying. I was sold after my second day wearing my Cloak Tuck!!!
First and last holster I'll ever buy! So comfortable cant imagine another one being as comfortable as this sometimes I don't even realize I have my weapon. Unmatched warranty and when I intially ordered my holster the only sent me part of it not the entire thing I called them told them what I receive they apologized sent me an entire new holster and told me to keep the other piece as a spare! With that being said you don't get better customer service! Anyone that ask me for a recommendation for a holster I immediately send them to alien gear! Thanks again for the awesome product you brought to the market keep doing what you're doing and you will definitely have my business in the future!
Comfortableat first but once broke in the metal lock rings on back of holster began putting holes in under shirt and underwear and stabbing me if there was a system in which the clips were adjustable without any metal on back such as a internal slide lock adjuster on the metal internal plate sown in holster i would gladly own another
I am really impressed with the design, product quality and Alien Gear's guarantee/warranty. You can't beat what they offer for the price and flexibility of swapping out holster shells. Their two holster deals can't be beat. I have used several holsters over the years but have yet to find the quality/value offered by Alien Gear Holsters. I am the type to do extensive online research before "pulling the trigger" but I can tell you I am very happy with my choice to go with Alien Gear Holsters. Their customer support is stellar as well so there's no good reason not to give them your business.
First I would like to say this company has THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE of anybody Their product is outstanding I got the holster adjusted it a couple of times to get it dialed in retention ride height etc haven't had any problems with it was so impressed with how it felt wasn't bulky weight distribution is perfect I can't say enough good things will definitely do business with this company and recommend to everyone I see thanks again alien your service and product is above and beyond expectations
I'm fairly new to concealed carry, but not to carrying altogether. With that said, I was trying to not stray too far from the companies I use for my duty carry. But all the holsters I purchased failed in one place or another. Came across alien gear and researched for months whether or not to purchase one. Finally took the leap and bought the 2 holster combo. Took a little longer than expected for delivery. Once I got my holsters, one of them were wrong. I called and the customer service lady quickly corrected the problem by sending me the correct shell for my xd subcompact free of charge (awesome!). I have been using the cloak tuck 3.0 for a couple of weeks now and it is flawless. The clips hold really well on all style of belts and pants. The soft backing feels smooth against the skin and doesn't rub on either skin or shirt contact. The option to change the retention with simple bushings is a great idea. Other holsters I've had only had 2 options for ride height and cant, alien gear has 3 ride heights and 6 different cant options. And the draw is smooth as can be, no snag and a really good cut to get a good high grip on the firearm. Can't wait to try out my belt slide for my winter carry under a jacket.
The AG gun belt works just as well as their famed holster does. Pros: Thick, good quality leather and workmanship, reliable & secure, good price, easy exchange process, 7-day test drive, 1 year warranty Cons: Sizing This belt fits amazingly, looks amazing, and is going to last a long time. It is very sturdy and takes the weight of the gun with ease. I use C-clips (rely on the belt and the pants) and I find this balance to work really well. I started out using their most recommended method for getting your belt size, by using a belt you already wear, getting comfy in it, etc, and adding an inch to the measurement. I came out to 4 sizes up, which is what was recommended by default based on jeans size and I was skeptical, but went with it. I couldn't even get the snaps to the first hole, and I'm not a big guy. I called customer service and did an exchange, which was painless and she was very friendly. I got my new belt before the end of the following week. It is brand-new as well, so no used belt in return (woo!). We went with 10 sizes higher than my pants size (I am the same size in pants for every brand I know of). Skeptical again, but it fits on the last hole now. This leaves you a lot of wiggle room in your sizing, but if you have doubts, order up sized carrying IWB. Regardless, Alien Gear was awesome and I commend them on all of their products I have!
Short and sweet: this holster is awesome. Everything they advertise works just like it shows. Pros: Adjustable, comfortable, concealable, no break-in, good quality product, shell trades for life in case you get a new gun Cons: None at this time Right out of the box, you can tell this quality holster is made with care, and I got it quickly too. You can get more expensive holsters and get less out of them, this one is made well and will last a long time.. I am a smaller guy, so concealability is a big deal for me. I don't want a potential attacker to know I am armed and make me a target.. Using C-clips, and this holster, I am able to accomplish this goal. This holster is also very customizable, which allows for really deep concealability, even in just a t-shirt and jeans! My draw is smooth and secure.. I wore this holster and their belt for the first time and within an hour of walking around with them, I almost forgot it was there. The neoprene stays as cool as you can get, and the holster stays secure to your body. This is a testament to the "no break-in time" that your usual leather holster will have. I will be getting my next holster from Alien Gear! (if I ever need one!)
I don't normally review products, but have been so impressed with this holster I had to. I just started carrying my first pistol after recently getting my CCW and decided IWB was for me. I ended up picking up a Blackhawk! IWB pancake holster very similar to the Cloak Tuck holsters. The brand had a pretty good reputation and that influenced my choice. The holster was very uncomfortable. Pinched, was scratchy, hot and just uncomfortable all over. I stuck it out for a month hoping the cheap leather would break in before I had had enough and started looking elsewhere. I was recommended Alien Gear from a customer of my shop. Found these holsters to be cheaper than the horrible Blackhawk I had before and seemed to be a lot of hype and buzz wordiness to them. For the price, I thought I'd give it a shot. What I can say is, the hype is real. This holster is amazing. Super comfortable right out of the package! Fits my LC9s perfectly, has better retention, breaths and stays cool and never bites. I'm not a little guy so I wasn't hopefully of every being completely comfortable while carrying but was willing to endure to protect myself. With this holster, you can very easily forget you're carrying because it is so comfortable. Can not recommend them enough. If you are on the fence, don't be. You won't be sorry. Thanks Alien Gear!
I purchased the 2 holster combo of Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWBs in Jan. 2016 after much research and viewing a friend's 3.0 for a Glock 43. My son and I both have Springfield XDS 45's that at the time had Viridian Reactor R5 Green Lasers and these holsters worked beautifully with that setup. For 6 months I could not have been happier with the handguns, holsters or lasers. Unfortunately the lasers began moving on the trigger guard where they mount and were sent to Viridian under warranty. Viridian graciously replaced them with C5 Green Lasers. I discovered that ALIENGEAR does not make a shell for the XDS 45 3.3" with the Viridian C5 Laser or C5L Laser/Light. My son and I both hope that the "Little Green Guys" engineer a XDS/C5 shell so we can get back to using the holsters we like so much.
I have used alien gear holsters for some time now and absolutely love them! In fact the last holster I ordered was a cloak tuck 3.0 for my brother as a bday gift. I accidentally ordered the wrong gun model. When the holster came in the mail I was excited about the quality but quickly realized I screwed up. I went on line and printed the return form, and sent back the original holster. I called alien gear and spoke to a woman Amanda I believe, I explained the situation that it was for a bday gift and gave her the tracking number of holster I sent back and with out hesitation offered to get me the correct one out that day!! Now that is service! She saved me roughly a week of wait time and it looks like my brothers holster will be here in time for his party!!! Thank you so much you have a customer for life!!!!
