Alien Gear Holsters Reviews
Rated 4.9 out of 5 stars. Based on 3899 Reviews
I was looking for something to carry my new K6s revolver in and trust me, the pickings are slim. I ordered the belt slide and IWB Cloak and was planning to only use it until one of the custom leather makers starts offering something for my revolver. Plans have changed. The belt slide is so comfortable that I have not even tried the IWB! The belt slide is so comfortable and keeps the gun so close that I can wear it with a light cover garment and be concealed. I have been spending money on custom leather for my 1911's (no regret) and am glad to know that there is something else out there that (1) doesn't break the bank and (2) I don't have to wait 10 weeks or better to get. Just ordered another belt slide for one of my 1911's.
I was told by word of mouth that Alien Gear made great holsters. I am new to the handgun world. My first holster was a "neoprene sock" to use for CWP qualification. It did the job and was really cheap. The Alien Gear holster is so much better it is not in the same zip code. My gun is S&W SD40VE (full size class). My Alien Gear holster fits it perfectly. It is very comfortable to wear, has very strong nylon clips, and holds the gun securely. I really like the customization options. Up, down, left, right. You put it where you want it. Due to my handgun being full size, "printing" is only an issue if I bend over. I prefer the 4:30 position. Kneeling or standing, it is invisible. (body size: 6', 180 lbs, 36x34 pants for reference/comparison for those looking to buy a holster) My shopping experience was great. No payment problems. Delivery was in 3 BUSINESS days. My friend's holster is more broken in. His clips are a little more spongy now but still secure, and the tan leather is black where the gun sits, dark brown where it is against skin. His is used constantly, and has owned for a long duration. No signs of failure yet.
So, I got my belt in today, and I must say, I'm impressed. It feels great and substantial, and it makes the IWB holster snug without pinching it. The belt is obviously thicker than your average belt, and it seems to be made with craftsmanship in mind. I got mine as part of a package deal, which makes it a very reasonable price for the product. I was nervous about dropping that much on a belt, but I trusted the company. As far as fit, I ordered a 40, I wear a 35 pant size, and it gave me room on both sides of the belt both with and without a firearm. I do wish they added another hole to the belt, but that's not a major issue.
I started with the original Cloak Tuck. Great Holster! Then graduated to the Cloak Tuck 3.0 when it came out. I'm more than satisfied. This holster is so comfortable to wear and carries my weapon of choice (XDM 45 Compact) so well that I almost forget I have it on. Hats Off to Alien Gear! I recommend Alien Gear to all of my friends. and family.
I have tried many of the competitors IWB holsters and this one is hands down the most comfortable ones. Easy to wear all day long, you actually forget you have it on! Craftsmanship that you would not expect for a holster of this price, and really fast shipping. Will be getting my other favorites fitted with Alien Gear Holsters!
I am a disabled person, a left leg above the knee amputee. Finding products that allow me to safely concealed carry has been a challenge before alien gear products hit the market, especially since carrying anything IWB on my left side is almost impossible due to the way my prosthesis fits and functions. These new mag carriers absolutely fit the bill for me as I can now adjust the cant of the bucket to a perfect angle in line with my belt. Now I can carry an additional mag for my Glock 23 OWB, Something I've been unable to do with products already on the market. The ability to customize how I carry is a lifesaver for me, literally. When I'm sitting, even OWB, my extra mag isn't interfering with my comfort at all, and stays secure. I have installed the belt slide option and the mag stays put in the same location weather I'm sitting or standing. There are a lot of reviews on here already about how these mags work, so I'd like to just reinforce how comfortable they really are, and that they're very simple to adjust to your liking. The construction is lightweight, very top-notch. You can't deny that having your allen wrench with you in the bucket is pretty amazing, especially if you need to make an adjustment here and there. I have shopped around for a LONG time, and until now, couldn't find a mag carrier that was tailored to my specific needs without spending a fortune. I've never been a big fan of leather products, and other carriers made of cloth offer zero retention and security. Alien Gear offered exactly what I needed right out of the gate. I also have the cloak mod 3.0 holster, as well as the cloak dock installed in my SUV, and I love them both. Wearing my Glock on my hip while I'm driving isn't an option for me due to how I sit. Now, I can carry an extra mag, on the other side of my waist, and my gun belt isn't being weighed down all on one side, and I can carry it comfortably. I even have a cloak tuck 3.0 for my .380 and love it. You can't go wrong with this mag carrier, no matter how you decide to wear it. An excellent platform all the way.
Loved it from the moment I pulled it out of the bag. The only thing I did was change the retention using the supplied hardware pack and it was perfect. Comfortable, functional and half the price of the competition. Customer service is top notch too! This fit my Springfield XD 45 like a glove. I just ordered one for my wife as well.
Have 2 of these holsters and am very satisfied. I can wear it tucked in pants with my shield 9mm and be comfortable. Shirt tucks in and with proper fit holster doesn't print. As far as customer service goes I'm very satisfied. My son gave me the second holster for a Christmas gift and found it don't have a mod pack included with holster and clips, after going online and chatting with Steve was then told it would be sent out free of charge, Was here within three days. If this doesn't help you decide to buy from them don't know what else to say.
I purchased this holster about a month ago. I didn't want to make a pointless review like I have seen that day "ordered today can't wait" just doesn't make sence. Over all good holster and very comfortable with one exception. I was use to carrying right behind the hip bone at about 3:30 position, this holster is set up to carry at about 4:30. Although it is extremely comfortable, I need to move it slightly when getting into the car and while driving as driving with the gun between my back and the car seat is not comfortable. Also with the gun between my back and the seat while driving makes it very unesesable while driving. but I would not let this effect my star rating. It's great that it's fully adjustable, height, retention and cant. My only recommendation would be to design a iwb holster that would fit comfortably right behind the hip at about the 3:30 position. Would definitely recommend!
I was skeptical upon ordering the double mag carrier, but was I proven wrong. These, in my opinion, are the greatest mag carriers ever! Alien Gear Holsters did an excellent job with providing multiple options of carrying your mags with just one purchase. It's very easy to set the single carriers and just as easy to set them for a different mag. Very happy with my purchase. Best Christmas gift to myself...ever!!!
Got to say that I love both styles of Holsters. I was looking for a while for diff types of Holsters and watching videos reviews and was very impress w ur products reviews. I wore the the iwb cloak 3.0 perfect fit since the moment I put it on. Little problem w trying to put it on my belt, specially the second belt holder. But I would imagine takes little getting use to it. Then started to wear the cloak mod owb and another perfect fit. I have to ck during the day to make sure still on my waist. It is so lite weight and slim fit that I have it in all day long even after I get home still on. It is so comfortable. Keep up the great job.
After receiving the mag carrier I commend Alien Gear for what I consider quality workmanship. I ordered the double stack Glock 45 cal carrier and although I know that I'm trying to conceal a brick the double stack carrier seemed to not help in the "concealment" of the magazine and really made it worse. With my Cloak Tuck 3.0 and the mag carrier is just too much to try and conceal in a IWB mode.
Super fast delivery! Received only 3 days after I placed the order. I bought the Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB and the extra black leather loops and this holster is the best fitting holster I have ever owned. Molds right to my body and doesn't give you any discomfort at all! When I first tested the holster out I broke one of the straps by accident and was trying to pull it apart the wrong way, I called in and talked to Corey, and he was amazing, talked me through how to open the straps correctly, and re issued me replacements while we were still on the phone. Customer service was amazing! Great company, would definitely recommend Alien Gear for all your holster needs!
I carry a full size HK 45...I was a little worried about printing but researched a while and decided to buy Alien Gear...what in awesome choice! I've been carrying practically every day using this IWB holster. I wear a lot of tank tops and T shirts and have never had any problems with printing or access and I occasionally adjust it for draw and security. I'm very happy with this product in every way.
I ordered the IWB/OWB combo for my G19 over 1 year ago and WOW!!! This is one amazing product! I have since purchased a S&W Shield and I immediately ordered another for it as well. They are both excellent products! I wear every day, sometimes around the house. I do not deliberately wear around the house. These holsters are so comfortable, that when I get home, I forget I am wearing them!!! I recommend Alien Gear holsters to everyone that asks!!! I must admit, though, that I have not worn the OWB model since purchasing it. Not because it's not a great product, but the IWB is SO comfortable, I prefer wearing it!!! Keep up the great work Alien Gear!!!
I have tried many different methods of concealed carry with a variety of pistols. Nothing compares to the comfort of the Alien Gear IWB. I have moved from the small of my back to my right side. I have carried with my shirt out and my shirt tucked in. I have been able to carry larger pistols than I used to and I no longer worry about printing and I have full movement with no pinching or discomfort of any sort. I have carried a P239, P225, and during winter I could get away with a P2000 and even a fullsized USP. With the Alien Gear I pick what I fell like carrying regardless of the season now. The extra shells are well worth the money. Just one request...please consider a P6/P225 shell in the future.
I carry the a Glock 43 in the Clock 3.0 pretty often more so on the weekends. I’ll carry for over 12 hours and I love this holster extremely comfortable and easily helps conceal. I highly recommend this holster. I don’t have the Alien Gear gun belt I have one from Hanks Belts. This is the only IWB holster I use now a days.
I purchased this holster just before the holidays and to my surprise received it 3 days later. Even during the crazy Christmas times they got it out quick. I've been carrying this holster every day and so far I love it. Before I was using a leather holster which required me to wear an under shirt so it didn't rub me raw. My favorite feature is definitely the neoprene backing. Very comfortable even against bare skin!!
This is my first holster purchase and after a lot of research I made the right choice with the Alien Gear OWB holster. You barely know you have it on and is very comfortable wearing all day ever day. Easy to access my Smith and Wesson m&p shield. Great construction, great warranty, great support. Thanks Alien Gear.
I have now ordered 2 IWB holsters, one as a gift and one for myself. Great product!! I was reluctant to order a larger, spread out IWB holster rather than the smaller ones like I have now. I may never wear my other ones again!! This holster is so comfortable and doesn't feel like a lump in my back. Very well made and I will order more for my other guns!! Thanks!!
I purchased the cloak tuck for my 9mm shield a while back. It has simply been the most comfortable - user friendly holster I have every used. I use this holster exclusively, and none other. It is extremely comfortable and makes for an easy draw in a defensive situation. I also purchased one of their fine belts as well. It too, is excellent and both holster and belt are used seven days a week. No need to go elsewhere for holster or belt purchases. I got MORE than my money's worth.
I bought my cloak 2.0 a few years ago. I live in the dry arid Nevada Desert and the 2.0 finally dried up and cracked. I put off claiming the warranty, mostly due to negative warranty experiences through other companies. I am so glad I got over it. I got on the web site to look into the warranty process and a chat window popped up. I asked my questions and was amazed that a real person actually responded. Not only did the person respond to the chat, once we got to the point of the process for payment he called me. When the phone rang I expected to hear an international accent. NOPE AMERICAN!!! nice then he stayed on the line while a really nice woman accepted the information and 4 days late my new 3.0 arrived. I am so amazed at Alien's customer service 5 stars x 10. CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!
Was worried about online reviews stating 3 weeks shipping time but this was fast considering I ordered on Sat 12/31 and received on Wed 1/4. Product looks and feels excellent but can't give a full review yet until I try it out for 2-3 months. So far, I really like how easy it is to adjust holster to fit me and being able to adjust tension of the case. As stated on website, holster really doesn't need break in time. It forms around the body like a glove. Will follow up in a couple months about reliability.
Bought it so I wasn't just carrying a spare mag in my pocket. It is easily adjustable and very well made. I love the ability to be either inside the waistband or outside. Many different cant opportunities if desired. The one downside I have seen is different buckets are almost as expensive as ordering another mag carrier. That is something you will have to decide on yourself but I know I love mine and now that the stepfather has seen it I may have to order one for him too...
Well got my package today. The fit and finish of this holster is outstanding! I, like many of you, have a closet full of holsters that just didn't work out. I have found my holster, with ought a doubt. I am a professional that has a firearm on me constantly, so I have a good experience of what a holster needs to be. Each piece of their product and overall presentation, from the packaging, to the instructions, to the included extra parts and quality hardware, to the apparent quality and usability of the included pieces and features, is at a level I rarely see. You have won a customer for life friends. From a fellow Idahoan, thanks. This is why you buy American.
These two holsters are the most comfortable and concealable that I have ever owned. I purchased the two holster combo to cover all seasons (northern tier US), and they do so admirably! The Cloak Tuck 3.0 works fantastic for concealed spring and summer carry under light shirts, etc. For fall and winter carry, I much prefer an OWB under jackets and coats to reduce the layers I have to dig through to access my weapon. The Cloak Slide certainly fits the bill. It forms nicely to the wearer, keeps the weapon tucked in tight, and is very comfortable whether standing or sitting. Now all they have to do is come up with a holster with a level 2 retention system for when I open carry. Do that and ALL my holsters will be Alien Gear. Great products at great prices! What more can you ask for!
I love this holster and will be keeping AlienGear Holsters in mind for my future purchases. I only have 1 downside to my purchase. I watched a video by AlienGear staff on Facebook the other day, and they were doing a demo on a holster. The parts bag included spacers and a alien keychain attachment, and it was in bright green, which would have been a cool accent to the holster, but dismayed when I opened my package, and discovered that my spacers and alien head keychain were in black. Oh well, still a great purchase, and amazing holster, great quality. Thank you!
