All about Alien Gear Holsters

Award-Winning Holster Designs

As a product of our hard work and passion for what we do, concealed carriers nationwide have awarded Alien Gear Holsters 4.6 out of 5-stars on Google. Our team was also honored to receive the “Best Holster in the History of Ever” from Concealed Nation, the largest concealed carry website in the world.

The History of Alien Gear Holsters

The history of Alien Gear Holsters is an interesting story... not often do you get to see progression being from the kitchen to an empire.

In 2010, Thomas Tedder’s firearm slipped from his holster and clattered to the ground in a Chucky Cheese parking lot. This unfortunate mishap drew attention from nearby patrons.

Knowing that he could no longer depend on someone else’s holster, Tedder began to build his own from the confines of his kitchen. As business grew, the young inventor moved his operation to a shed in his backyard.

Over the course of five years, our team has built Alien Gear Holsters into the leading concealed carry holster company. We moved into our new facility in Post Falls, Idaho, in November of 2016.

We have kept our values intact through this time of growth.

Customer Testimonials

“Me and my family were hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. We were forced to evacuate as our home flooded and we lost everything inside the home. I had your holster on my belt the entire time and didn't take it off for days as the situation never allowed for removal. The level of comfort and support it provided during that time was phenomenal. I've used a number of holsters, but none match yours.”

—Stephen Frassetti

“Your company and staff are awesome. I received my new ShapeShift [Starter] Kit for my GLOCK 19 and I found it to be amazingly comfortable like it had been through a break-in period. I will be sure to mention "Alien Gear" to my fellow NASCAR drivers, and to all my teammates which share the same passion as myself, and appreciate their conceal carry right.”


This company's customer service is second to none! I love the product I've purchased and have been very well treated every step of the way by these guys. I will definitely be a lifelong returning customer.

—Demetrios Logan
