Alien Gear Holsters Reviews
Rated 4.9 out of 5 stars. Based on 3707 Reviews
I used this holster when I still had my Springfield and it worked wonderfully. It was comfortable for all day wear and I had very few issues with it. The price is definitely a steal in my opinion. I also have an OWB holster from a different company and it was $20 more and seeming less function. Not to mention Alien Gear has some of the best customer service I've encountered. When I bought a new EDC handgun they went above and beyond helping me getting what I needed in an expedient manner so I wouldn't be without carrying. The only thing I would say to watch out for with this holster is that if you're training with the holster a lot (i.e. drawing and reholstering repeatedly), make sure you check the screws as they can loosen with repeated use. Or you can always look for some type of thread lock to avoid them coming loose. I highly recommend this holster and this company. I will be buying more from them as needed!
I purchased the Cloak MOD OWB holster for my Taurus PT111 Millennium G2. I was greatly impressed with the fast shipping and quality of the product so I then ordered the dual MAG carrier. Again, fast sipping and quality product. I was greatly surprised with the mounted Allen wrench on the MAG carrier. Not a complaint at all, but may I suggest mounting an Allen wrench on the holster also so that adjustments can be made at any time? Great products!!!
Just received my Cloak Tuck today. All of the reviews that read on these things were dead on! Comfort level is absolutely night and day difference between this holster and the dual carry combination holster I had before. It was a fine, well made holster, and worked perfectly OWB, but was only "tolerable" comfort level when worn IWB. With this Cloak Tuck, I can barely tell that it is there! Re-holstering is also amazingly easy with this holster! Simple to do with one hand. I didn't even get their latest and greatest 3.0 version of this holster, I ordered the older model, and am still MORE than satisfied with it! At the excellent price point, combined with the outstanding warranty that comes with the Allen Gears, you ABSOLUTELY can't go wrong with these.
This belt is great and overall really happy with my purchase. It's perfect for holsters ( I have Cloak Tuck IWB & OWB). My ONLY complaint is that this belt is crazy noisy! I know that sounds weird but the rattle/squeak/whatever you want to call from the buckle it is obnoxiously loud when when not cinched tight. It sounds like a giant cricket! Am I the only one to notice this?
I have tried several makes including well known brands in leather and other materials. Sad that I spent a lot of money before finding the Alien brand. I purchased the IWB and OWB combo for my XDS with Crimson LG-469 laser. It is by far the most comfortable and really holds close to the side to make it less noticeable when in use. I am hoping Alien makes one available for my Glock 22 with the LG-462 Crimson laser. I would buy it immediately.
Fits my Mark-II perfectly, I was able to mod the outer shell to accommodate my Burris III Red Dot with no modification needed on the back piece. Literally the best holster setup I could hope for! Extremely Comfortable and even good looking, At this price point, It's worth bragging about! Would attach Pics here if it were possible.
I've had this for a year and a half. I'ts in great shape. I carry a Taurus PT111 G2. The holster base is a little worn where the external safety rides, which is to be expected. The backing is holding up great. The pistol grip of my Taurus has a very coarse texture and it touches my skin and can be a little uncomfortable but I'm used to it. Locktite on the screws for the clips is necessary because they can loosen after several weeks. If I had to buy a holster again, I'd by another one of these for sure.
Had a little issue when doing the free shell swap. I ordered a shell for my Kimber warrior 1911 (railed), but received a shell for a standard 1911. Called customer service and had a replacement on its way immediately! They even let me keep the incorrect shell because it was "their mixup". Absolutely love alien gear and the way they stand behind their products.
I picked up the 3.of inside the pants for a Sig p938 with Viridian laser. I've used the holster for 3 weeks just above every day and am very happy with it. Does everything they say it will and is so comfortable in almost forgot I had it. I will definitely be ordering for my other handguns. Just placed an order for one to fit my 1911 commander
I purchased the Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB on a Friday afternoon and received it the following Monday in Virginia. Extreme attention to detail was given in the packaging of the products. All components were individually packaged in sealed Ziploc-type bags that were clearly labeled. Extra spacers, hardware, decals, all the necessary tool(s) required to adjust and maintain the holster, along with clear instructions were included. Fit and finish are excellent. Proudly built in the USA with a great guarantee and a 30 day test drive. If you're unsure about buying this product, don't be. I am strongly recommending this line of products to everyone who shares interest or carries a firearm.
Great Product and even better customer services. I received a smaller belt than what I had ordered so I haven't had a chance to use it, but the belt is high quality and looks great. Called customer service and they made it right. Definitely will be purchasing more from Alien Gear and will be recommending their products to others. Thanks Alien Gear!
Recently just purchased this mount along with the Clock Mod OWB holster, and I'm overall happy with what I got. the only issues I have with it is, I was shorted the mounting hardware (Allen key screws) when I received it in the mail, also I purchased this with the intention of mounting in my car and I'm just not comfortable with drilling holes into my center console.
I originally ordered a cloak. 2.0 IWB holster for a charles Daly 1911, I am 9'11, 150 lbs, so of slim stature, no issues with a full size .45 caliber pistol disappering under even a t-shirt, very comfortable as well, nothing bad to say about these holsters, even recommended to others, currently awaiting my shell exchan, sent Thursday, PO said it would arrive at factory Saturday, will post new review after receiving said exchange.
A lot of companies offer a good product at a good price, but then skimp on customer service. I knew that Alien Gear had that nailed down when I emailed questions concerning my upcoming purchase at 8pm on a Saturday... and they answered my questions within an hour. Armed with the information provided, I confidently ordered a Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB holster, a Cloak Mod OWB holster, and the Cloak Dock OWB holster mount. They shipped by order promptly and I received my order within a couple of days. Both holsters are comfortable and have great adjustable retention, indeed the Cloak Tuck holster is so comfortable that I forget that I am wearing it. The only reason that I am not giving this a perfect score, is that I lost several screws and attachments before finding Alien Gear's recommendation to use blue Loctite on the screws. Since this is a common problem, I would think that Alien Gear would either change the screw/nut combination, or provide an individual packet of Loctite with the parts package. I plan on ordering a gun belt in the future, as well as the mag carrier (after it has had time to have more reviews).
I was directed to this sight by an employee of a major hunting store chain. After doing some research I bought the IWB for my XD Mod 2 .45 subcompact. EVERYTHING that Alien gear claims about their product is true. From the comfort of the holster to the durability and quality, I am EXTREMELY satisfied. I showed my dad the holster and he requested one for his birthday. Showed my uncle and he went home and bought one himself the next day!
This holster is by far the best on market for IWB carry. I bought for my shield then actually seen how comfortable it was and decided to order one for my 1911. I can carry either or with ease. 1911 for winter and shield for summer. And yes if you wonder if I have ever had competitors holsters at twice or three times the price? Yes I have and the Alien gear is as good if not better. Customer service is great too. Fast shipping and very well made.
I have had this holster for a little under 3 months. I always wear this at work and sometimes for personal things. Fits and feels comfortable but I have to wear a T-shirt under it. I have a Taurus 9mm and it fits my gun perfectly. A little expensive but well worth the money. Nice job Alien Gear. Customer service has been excellent.
Decided to try the cloak 3.0 IWB holster for my EDC Xd mod 2 9mm subcompact. Ordered on a Monday and received shipment within 4days. Upon inspection the wrong outer shell was not correct. Made a phone call to customer service that Friday explaing my problem. Representative was very knowledgeable and apologetic. By the following Monday (today) I received my replacement outer shell, at no cost to me. Weapon fits great and seems to be a very well made product . Made in USA. Looking forward to giving it a try. All my expections were met to the greatest degree. Nice job Alien Gear!
Probably the most comfortable holster you can get. I'm wearing mine with either my Model 15 4" or my Taurus 82 3" barrel. I take naps in my recliner with it on. I wear probably 18 hours a day and actually don't even notice I'm wearing it most of the time. I'm going to start shooting IDPA events with revolver and I'm going to buy the OWB holster. I'm also looking at one for my Glock 17 (but if the wife gets interested in shooting that event, I'll get her a gun and a holster to match). One note, you probably will have to set up the holster at the lowest holes so the holster is up high on your waist. I had a problem with reholstering because the top of my pant's waistband kept getting in the way. Once I had it set up, it works just fine.
This is the one you've been looking for! I will admit that I was skeptical about trying this due to the wide profile and hybrid kydex / alien skin construction, but after owning and using my new cloak tuck 3 for a month or so, I am absolutely convinced that it is the best holster on the market today! The kydex makes for a smooth, frictionless draw. The neoprene is so comfortable, you can actually forget it's there. Yesterday, I took this product on a 5-mile hike before driving to the city, walking around some more, and ultimately settling down for a dinner out. Never was I concerned about the integrity of the "hold," or even comfort for that matter. Best of all - I can tell you that these guys are all about the customer service. They've been an absolute pleasure to do business with, and have earned my loyalty and appreciation. Note - it takes some practice to learn how to put this holster on, but once you cross that mark (1-2 days), you will see how it absolutely molds to your body, and is a breeze to put on from that point forward. I've tried other holsters. This is the one. You won't be disappointed!
I use this mag carrier for my Ruger LC9s Pro spare magazine. The retention for the mag carrier is great had no issues with adjusting it to how I wanted it and lived the fact the tool is imbedded into the carrier itself. For OWB carry I love it. You can adjust the ride hight and angle to fit what ever your preference can be. I love the larger (wider) single clip for it. It fit securely to my belt and didn't move around on me. The kydex bucket is very durable and even with OWB carry it's still easily concealed. My only real issue with this product is the IWB carry aspect. This is solely reflecting on how it fits the single stack (7 round) 9mm magazine for my Ruger LC9s Pro. If I carry IWB on the lowest setting the base of the magazine sits just a hair under my belt. Which luckily you can switch to the higher carry position and it's the perfect hight for my magazine... my biggest complaint for IWB is that for my magazine the neoprene backing has just a tad more then 1 inch left from the top of it to where my magazine sits. This may not be an issue for a skinner person but for a big guy like me this causes the backing to fold over the top of my magazine. This causes it to get in the way when trying to pull the magazine out or put it back in. I am curious if the neoprene backing is a 1 size for for all or comes in different sizes like their cloak tuck IWB holsters. I will be buying additional carriers for my Double Stack .40 S&W & for my .45 acp 1911.
This is definitely the most comfortable IWB holster I own. I purchased this a little over a month ago or so and I'm so far pleased with it. I wear mine at 4:30 or 5 and honestly don't even feel it. I can easily relax on a couch or relax (relatively) on an uncomfortable chair without my pistol or the holster digging into me. There is a minor break in period where the holster must first form to your body, but beyond that there is no such time. I carry this literally everywhere (that I legally can) and I have never had anyone notice it. Rarely do I have to adjust it and when I do it is a quick adjustment for comfort. It is absolutely a great buy for the money I just wish it were a little cheaper since I am in college, but I'll make due.
This is my second purchase from this company, and let me tell you it was another phenomenal experience. This is a class act company that stands behind it's product! I purchased this because I wanted to utilize another gun for concealed carry. I could have bought just another shell, but I like to have separate rigs for each gun. This is by far the most comfortable holster I have ever used! Buy it! You won't be disappointed!
I picked this up the other day because I wasn't happy my in the pocket magazine holder I have and I had my cloak & tuck 3.0 for my Springfield XD mod. 2 the past year and have loved it. It's the most comfortable gun holster I have ever wore ( and I should know I'm a big guy lol ). So I thought I'd give this a try since I've had so much success with my holster and my Bigfoot gun belt. Overall it's an amazing product as expected the only issue I see is you have to get creative with it when you use it IWB being a bigger guy. The build quality and durability is excellent. Now OWB it's amazing I like how you can adjust the retention to your liking. The hidden spot for Allen wrench so it's always with you is very cool. Overall it's amazing you just have to be a bit creative if your a big guy and plan to ware it on your belt. A+ Alien Gear keep of the good work and quality of products and you will have a life long customer in me.
I have worn my IWB holster for about a week and it is a great piece of gear. It is well made and user friendly. I really want to highlight the customer service I received for Alien Gear. Post office had not delivered my holster a couple of days after it was due. One phone call and a replacement was on the way. I actually bought a second holster while on the phone with the guy because I was thinking about one for my second carry gun. The employee was so tuned into making this right that I decided to give them a little more money and haven't been disappointed. I am a customer for life and will tell anyone looking for a holster to look here...Thanks
I have been wearing my MOD all winter carrying a G23 and Love the option to carry strong sided or cross, especially when I'm driving. I'm a lefty so sometimes it's a pain in the %$@# to be able to draw seated. I've had both IWB and OWB rigs from AG for over a year now and have found these holsters to be the best for my G23 and G27 guns. Thanks guys keep up the fantastic work!
My review is in context with their discontinued model Cloak 2.0 with extra clips and using a Taurus model 82. I'm not sure where to put this review so it'll go here for now. To try and keep it short, the holster is priced very well for the quality you get and very modular. It rides very comfortably, even with a K-frame sized revolver once you get it set in a good spot. I'm still experimenting to see where I ultimately want it, but it does well for me about the 3:30 position on a guy who is 5'8" and about 125 lbs. It doesn't feel too heavy for me and feels comfortable with a shirt or bare skin. The extra clips I got are a nice option and hold very well. The spacers are also a nice option, and I have used the larger ones to get a nice grip on the gun. This holster lends itself very well to personal accommodations. There are a few things to note, thus the 4 star score for quality. The first, which has been corrected, it used to say for 5 inch barrel revolvers when in fact it only reaches to 4 inches. You can make it work for something longer, but some filing may be required. That leads to my second point. The shell as I got it only accommodates for a partial underlug barrel. My model 82 is a new production which has a full underlug. The holster would not fit snugly, rattling around and having a poor grip on the gun. I had to file off part of the shell in order to get a proper fit. It was annoying, but nothing deal-breaking to me. It was an easy fix, but may void warranty. Take that for what you will. My final point: keep an eye on your clip screws. You can accidentally loosen them with the clip itself by rotating it. Just make sure you give it a twirl with you finger and you're good to go. Overall, a great product so far. You get a lot for the money and fits anyone very well. I may come back some time later to give an update on how it has held up to more constant use. If I could recommend something to Aliengear, could we get some good pictures of the K-frame 4 inch holsters so that we can see how they actually look. There's only one picture available of this shell on the holster combo. If would be nice to actually see that instead of the J-frame revolver picture. Also, perhaps could you make a new shell that will accommodate full underlug revolvers? It would be highly appreciated.
I have I have a total of five alien gear holsters and love them all. I carry the 43 everyday and don't notice it's there. If you don't have a gun belt yet theirs is top quality. It's a must when carrying something heavier. Also their customer service is top notch . Can't say enough good things about this company.
I have been concealed carrying for a while, but the one problem that seem to always play give me was finding a holster that was comparable and that fit me well. With some research, I came upon Alien Gear and I have only use them ever since! They make a very high-quality holster, that is very comfortable and surprisingly does not make you hot through the summer. I live in North Carolina and our summers are usually 8–9 months a year and this is comfortable in all seasons. Between the price being a steal, and the holsters being made here in the USA, this is a no-brainer! I have had five of these holsters and will continue to buy!
