These belts are so good, after I received my brown belt, I had to come back and order the black one. I used my old belt with IWB holster for my measurement. We all have them, the one that droops down in back and folds over with the weight of your side arm. Just use the belt hole to inside buckle as the measurement to get the perfect fit. Save the shipping charges, just order both at the same time.
Love my Sloak 3.0 and wanted a double mag carrier for my M&P Shield. I find the carriers to be bulky. I would have to change my pant size from a 34 to a 38 to accommodate the double carrier. After a bit of changing around it really works well OWB though it needs to be placed in just the right spot for concealment. Positioning also makes it more difficult to reak the mags for a reload.. Still within the 30 days and I may return them and continue to look for quality leather mag pouches which are way thinner and more concealable.
Years ago I tried out a couple iwb holsters.I decided they were not for me. I recently obtained my cwp and wanted a good carry holster for my p226 ( I know what you're thinking...why would you have a full size auto for everyday concealed carry). I stumbled across these holsters and decided for the price I'd give it a shot. I can't tell you how happy I am with my purchase. Even with my sig I don't notice im wearing it. super comfortable with great retention and a smooth draw.not to mention it hides that big old sig. Three guys at the gun counter today while i was purchasing my glock had no idea i was carrying until one of them asked if i carried when he saw my permit. I ordered my first one late friday night on a holiday weekend and had it by tuesday morning.I'm here today ordering another one for my glock 20. If you're having trouble "pulling the trigger" on one of these i say just do it. You won't be disappointed. superior quality at half the price. They've earned concealed holster of the year and my repeat business for a reason.
Works perfect for my Bersa Thunder 380. Doesn't fit right with the Crimson Trace, was told taking a little off the top portion with a Dremmel won't void warranty but ended up putting the regular grips back on since the pistol's so accurate on it's own. It's a snug fit, it's not going to just fall out. It didn't fall when I turned it all upside down and shook it. It takes a deliberate pull to release. Very happy with the purchase and highly recommend.
The fit to the weapon is exact and secure. And the comfort is amazing no matter if I'm in the car, running, wrestling, or taking a nap, the weapon and holster stay on - in - and ready! Gave the holster as a gift so I bought a cloak tuck 3! Now my referrals are getting referrals! Great product I'm proud to wear and tell others about.
Totally night and day difference from what I was using. I had a single belt loop leather holster that centered the weight of my SR40C which made my pants ride low on my carrying side. The slide dug into my lower back as well. The Alien Gear holster spreads out the weight and keeps my gun from resting on my skin. The holster is really comfortable, I can see why it is so popular. The adjustable features are way cool!
I am extremely impressed with the mag carrier, the amount of custom options is second to none. The no tools needed approach to adjusting the carriers to your liking is another added bonus. also the fact that you can go from a single to a duel mag carrier with just a few clicks is amazing. There is so much more i could say and I would highly recommend this to others and will!
This is my first IWB holster. I chose to buy this product after extensive research... I read every review I could find on a variety of different brands. Alien Gear showed consistent positive customer feedback. Out of the box, I was able to make the holster fit perfectly in my pants. Some adjusting of the retention screws was required, as well as an application of nail polish to keep the screws in place. Once I found the "sweet spot" I could barely tell that I was wearing a firearm. Ever since, I have been able to wear my firearm in comfort all day long. I love it! Also, I advise wearing an undershirt with this holster... the neoprene is not comfortable against bare skin. In addition, the holster screws should be regularly checked as they can come loose. This is a great product I highly recommend!
I ordered this holster back in October of 2015 and have been in love ever since. It's no joke or gimmick when they say they are the most comfortable holder ever. I can wear it literally all day long at home, in the car on road trips, whatever I'm doing and it doesn't bother me at all. It holds my M&P Shield securely and confidently. I also love the adjustable retention and the way you can adjust how it sits on your belt line. The quality is top notch and it hasn't even flinched since I bought it. The ONLY things that I had to do, is to put blue loctite on the screws because they kept backing out, and I just had to order new clips because they bent out of shape and don't hold anymore (but they knew it was an issue and upgraded them so I ordered them). Thank you for making such a great product!!
The best of the best . I have owned multiple leather, cloth, and hybrid holsters this one beats them all hands down. I've only had the product one day but have done a lot. I've worked on my truck, I've driven to the store, and walked around said store . I've bent and reached even held my children. Theres none of the moving and shifting of the other style holsters. And it feels great to wear right out of the box. I will continue to purchase your products for all of my holster need. Thank you for making such a great product.
This holster is phenomenal. I'm a pretty skinny guy, but it's hard to tell that I'm wearing a full size 1911,. The holster is comfortable and well constructed. My only complaint (if you can call it that) is that the serrations on the slide as well as the protruding slide catch and thumb safety gouge the leather of the holster (which isn't AlienGear's fault at all. When its steel vs. leather, steel is gonna win). But with AlienGear's warranty, if the holster ever wears out, it'll be replaced. 10/10 would (and do) recommend.
This set is by far the best value in the market all the good reviews and advertisements are true this is the best out there. So comfortable I wear it around the house as well even take naps wearing my gear. Fear not if you change carry arms they will swap your shells. And if by some chance something happens to your gear they will make sure your taken care of and quickly. Buy with faith!!
Being a bigger guy I thought that the IWB Cloak Tuck 3.0 might be a bit uncomfortable, but boy was I so wrong. This holster is so comfortable, and it molds so well to your body. I've tried other holsters that my uncle got for the same firearms, and nothing felt as comfortable. Needless to say, Alien Gear is the best out there. I plan on using their gear for all my EDC needs
I ordered my holster with these steel clips instead of the plastic standard clips. I'm impressed with the quality and they hold on tight, even with quick draws. They are very hard to clip over my jeans and belt however, but I'd rather have a hard time putting them on and know they'll hang on tight when I need it most. My only qualm with them is that I wear my holster at 3:00 and occasionally when sitting, the side edge of the clip at the top of my jeans will dig into my gut. As far as price goes, these seem much more worth it than the plastic ones. I've had the holster for 6 months with these clips and they haven't stretched out, but they have gotten a little easier to clip on.
I feel like a spokesman for AG, every person that walks up to a gun counter I'm am at and says what's a good holster, i give them this company. These holsters are over the top, and i never take mine off even when i take the pistol out, the family loves them, and i give them as gifts usually. Trustable real american quality hands down!
I bought this on the word of one of my friends. I asked for a reliable holster and he referred me Alien gear. I checked it out and bought it right there. Basically spent 50$ now I can carry, with a 45 mind you, and it feels like I just have soft pad on me. Gun fits great in it and it comes out they way I like it to. Its comfortable and doesnt bug me whatsoever with daily movements. (Walking, bending, lifting etc...) Worth the buy! Thank you
I now own 4 Alien gear holsters 3 IWB and 1 OWB. Along with a skin for an additional pistol. I find them comfortable to wear and I like the fact that there is adjustability in each one. Hopefully in hot weather they will be good also. You can't beat the delivery service, order on a Monday and it's on your waist by Thursday. The pricing is reasonable and the ordering processes is outstanding.
The belt is nice and stiff it hold holsters well without sagging. I will continue to buy in future as long as I see it's durable. The only improvement I would like to see is the replacement of the snaps that hold in the buckle they are very difficult to snap back together. My previous gunbelt was made by Mitch Rosen and I prefer the Chicago bolts . If the snaps ever break I'll see if I can get them instead.
I actually ended up loving this belt , after the sizing was corrected .. My waist size is a 40 , and the website recommended going with a 44 inch belt .. It was way to big , so I recorded one for a 42 inch waist .. Now it fits like a glove . The quality is outstanding . Buy the belt .. Its the best around !!!
I bought this about a year and a half ago for my SD40VE for winter carry. I wear form fitting clothes so was only expecting to be able to carry my full size when it was carhartt weather. I can also carry completely concealed with just a thin hoodie on in the spring and fall. In fact, I choose to carry my full size SD40VE w/ alien gear cloak tuck than carry my little Ruger LCP with a $60 IWB holster. Looking at new guns now and will order an additional original cloak tuck the same day I purchase a new firearm.
All I can say is "wow". I finally have found a company that makes quality holsters that are lightweight and comfortable, fit my pistol and for left hand. They stand behind their product 100% with lots of additions and perks. I am so happy my search is over high quality, comfortable holsters. Thanks Alien Gear!!
This is the best holster that I have used period. It is so comfortable that I forget that I am carrying. Extremely easy to draw and re-holster. Concealability is excellent. Whether I am active or relaxing I do not notice it and others do not have a clue that I am carrying. Outstanding product!!! I have been making many referrals. Thanks again.
First....shipping was lightning fast. Not only did I get the product when it was promised but I actually one day early. What I enjoy the most from this product (single Mag Carrier) is the versatility and multiple carry options. I can wear it at 360 degrees anywhere on my belt. It is slim and compact and does not interfere with my body armor. I contacted customer service with a few questions and the agent (Porter) did an excellent job answering my questions. I would highly recommend this product. I only gave you 5 stars because there isn't an option for 6!
After much research I purchased the Alien Gear gun belt. The first time I had to go somewhere I was excited to be wearing such a beautifully crafted belt. As I slid my Cloak Slide OWB holster onto the belt, I felt this sickening scratching. I removed the holster from the belt and my shiny new classy belt now had several deep scratches in it. I inspected the back side of the leather base (the part that is against the body) and found two of the screw bases had worked their way out from the leather. The sharp edges of the screw bases is what caused the scratches on my new belt. I knew I could not let this continue because it would not only continue to damage my belt, but it would eventually fail completely and probably at the worst time. I checked my old belt and it had several minor scratches in it. It was slightly thinner and older belt so I guess I did not pay any attention to the screw bases. I called customer service and explained the problem to them. No problems, a new leather holster base was mailed to me. It arrived in 2 days and I did not have to send the old base to them. The screw bases on the new leather base are almost smooth against the leather and I still feel like they scratch the belt when I slide it on. There has to be a way to cover the screw backs instead of leaving them exposed and that is why I gave the leather base a 2 star rating on quality. This applies only to the leather base and not to the entire OWB holster. The customer service representative originally wanted to replace the belt, but I knew it would only be new, shiny, and unscratched for a short time anyway, so I declined the belt replacement. If I had wanted a new belt, I pretty sure one would have been provided.
I have had this holster for a little over a year now and I can gonestly say that it has been a joy to carry with this system! Comfort is second to none and can be adjusted to the perfect amount of retention for your needs. I have recommended this system to half a dozen or more and will continue to do so whenever i get the chance!
There is no other Holster that I will buy. For the price and value of this holster there is no comparison to the IWB clock and tuck for my Bersa 9mm. Ever since I bought this holster I am carrying my 9mm ever where I go. I go on my nightly walks using this holster and it is just simply the most comfortable out there.
AG again knocked it out of the park, this time with cloak double mag carriers. Quality and versatility are excellent albeit a bit pricey. However, you get what you pay for. I have a cloak mod OWB holster as well as a cloak tuck 3.0 and a gun belt. AG customer service is beyond reproach. I haven't owned any other brand of holsters and accessories and I can't imagine I ever will at this point. I highly recommend any of these products.
I make several long road trips a year and have been in search of a holster that is comfortable enough to be worn for 5-6 hours at a time while riding in a vehicle (pretty much the most uncomfortable way to wear a iwb holster). Well I can honestly say that this is the holster for me. I drove from middle Georgia to central Florida (6hrs) without feeling the need to remove the holster one time. It was great! For the price you pay for this holster, you can't go wrong!!!!
