Alien Gear Holsters Reviews
Rated 4.9 out of 5 stars. Based on 4061 Reviews
After extensive research into this kind of holser Alien Gear had unbelievable prices. Was scared that the quality was going to match the price as in the old saying "you get what you pay for". Once it was in my hands I was blown away by the quality of components and workmanship. Best of all it's proudly made in America. I have recommended to all my friends and family, and would recommend to you as well.
I absolutely am impressed upon getting my new cloak tuck 3.0 and my owb holster as well. I came to learn about your products from my younger brother Mike who also wears your product! I have a friend who is ordering a 2 holster combo fro you as well! Your product appears to be made of quality components, and after trying it on, I was amazed by the comfort of both holsters. I look forward to wearing my cloak tuck 3.0 as my primary everyday holster and will write back to let you know the results of my review. Thank you fir a quality product made here in the U.S.A. !
Have purchased 5 holsters from alien gear. What can I say ? Good product and great customer support !!! Triple guarantee. Traded in a shell from an old purchase and received a brand new shell for a new pistol. No hassles, Quick shipping on return, and no cost to me..Will buy more alien gear in the near future. Why go anywhere else !!!! Stan
Well I bought this holster a few weeks ago, and it came in the mail within 5 days of me placing the order. Once I received the holster and opened the box, I was surprised to find my cloak tuck 3.0 was not as pictured on the website. ( hence 4 stars on quality) The holster backing with neoprene is great, and with the steel core you can barley tell you have your sidearm tucked away. The plastic clips are sturdy and hold the holster exactly where I place it in the 430 position. This holster is better than my crossbreed super tuck and way more comfortable than my galco gunleather king tuk. The only thing i am not partial too, is that for all the glock models they use an injection molded case with small raised profiles in the trigger guard making it look as if the trigger is exposed. I thought I was purchasing Formed kydex, so that is the only reaso I gave quality 4 stars. I will still be buying more of these holsters.
I purchased the 2 holster combo (IWB and OWB holster for my M&P 9FS and my M&P 9c). I must say I was skeptical about the quality of the items when I saw what I would have to pay for them. After almost a year of wearing them on a daily basis, my skepticism has been put to rest. The quality of workmanship on the holsters is exceptional and so far there is very little indication of wear anywhere on the material. I can't believe how comfortable both of the holsters are to wear. I have worn each of them in jeans, shorts, suits, and sweat suits and they have been incredible. I've even worn them while skiing without any issues. They are more comfortable than holsters I have paid more for and they have worked great for me in their ability to conceal my EDC. Would I recommend the Alien Gear holsters? You bet I will and I have! I just ordered their gun belt and I expect it will be the same quality. They make incredible gear and have a great warranty. I can't comment on their customer service because I haven't needed them. That's a good thing, but if I ever do, I'm sure it would be top notch. Thanks!
I started with the cloak tuck 2.0 and have moved on to the 3.0. Fantastic holster, a little break in time, but when the base is broken in to where you position your firearm it is like it's not there. I carry a glock 23 all day, every day and most times I forget it is there. The interchangeable plates are great, we all own more than one pistol...let's be honest! I haven't had aNY problems with the hardware coming loose but after the in tial set up of the holster (cant/ride height/retention) I used blue lock tite on my screws and haven't had an issue. Great holsters, I cannot wait for my cloak mod OWB to arrive!
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!
