Glock 22 Drop Leg Holster



This product does not include Mag Buckets.



A Glock 22 drop leg holster is both practical and tactical. Granted, you hardly need to be a professional to find a great use for a thigh rig for the G22. A quality holster for this carry position allows you to open carry in astounding comfort.

A decent Glock 22 leg holster allows you to open carry around your home, at the range, or in the out of doors - and a stout .40 load is a perfectly capable woods carry round.

However, what sets a Glock 22 drop thigh holster or thigh rig apart from another?

Fit and retention for a start. A lot of Glock 22 thigh holsters don't actually retain the pistol without a finger release or thumb strap because they aren't actually made for the Glock 22. They're made to fit any gun and as a result don't really fit anything. This has turned a lot of people off thigh carry.

Then you have the thigh rig itself. Cheap straps, a flimsy holster base and so on don't inspire a lot of confidence in your carry rig. Add that to a poor-fitting holster and you have a Glock 22 thigh rig that's going to sit in a holster drawer.

The common poor-quality thigh holster is exactly what Alien Gear sought to do away with when we created our Glock 22 drop leg holster.

Don't worry about the fit. Our thigh rig works with our ShapeShift and Cloak Mod holsters, so you get the custom-molded fit that you've come to expect from Alien Gear.

Retention is no worry. Both the ShapeShift and Cloak Mod have fully adjustable passive retention, which you can adjust until you find the perfect setting. If you've installed the ShapeShift, you can also add an active retention device if you prefer.

Our thigh attachment system is also second-to-none, made from our proprietary injection-molded polymer that's nearly unbreakable under most conditions.

Wondering if this is promising more than can be delivered? You can return the holster for a full refund in the first 30 days of ownership if not to your satisfaction. We're prepared to put our money where our mouth is.

We also warrantee your thigh holster for life. Any issue gets fixed or we send you a new one.

You may have tried lesser designs of Glock 22 drop leg holster. Now get a good one.

Great customer service Review by Travis

This is the best customer service I have ever experienced. Called because I had just received my holster a couple weeks ago and the thumb release button seemed to not be functioning right. No questions asked they sent me another one that arrived the next day! Called around 4pm and the new holster was delivered next day free of charge. This company stands behind their warranty and product (Posted on 5/20/2020)

I bought this in a large but had to send it back because it was to big. a word of advice if your thigh is a 26" in diameter if it start with that size in a medium go with that size
you'll have plenty of width. Alien Gear send me the right size after I returned it. no questions ask. I love these guys. (Posted on 4/28/2020)
Comes loose all the time Review by Fox
Quality

The straps do not stay tight. You sit down one strap becomes loose in the front holding the holster to your belt. Then you stand up and this allows the holster to drop. Once it's dropped the leg straps come loose. The straps only stay where you adjust them if under extreme tension. So much tension you will loose blood flow to your leg. I'm going to be returning this and looking for a unit that stays where I adjust it. Also slight down side with how far it sticks out from your hip. Needs to be a slimmer profile.

Good and serviceable but some oversights Review by Mike
Quality

Using with a Glock 32.

It fits well and is easily adjustable. I ordered a medium and was easily able to adjust everything to fit my leg. Especially a fan of the double thigh straps. Leg holsters are inherently unbalanced when the gun is holstered and the brands that only have on thigh strap are often impossible to secure in such a way as to eliminate wobble. Not a problem here.

The retention is excellent, standard trigger guard latch with a thumb button on the inside. The button itself is a bit cheap feeling and has a lot of flex in it, meaning that if your thumb is off to one side slightly when you press it, it will bend to the side instead of going straight down and releasing the gun. It doesn't feel as if it's going to break and training will solve the problem. Still, it is a silly problem to have and could easily be solved by having a slightly thicker linkage or adding a small bracket around it to keep it aligned. Also, holstering requires a bit more force than some other common brands of these holsters in order to lock it in. Again, training will solve this problem for each user but it would have been easy to solve by changing the shape of the latch or adding a small teflon strip to it, or any other number of tiny changes.

My largest complaint, by far, is the belt straps. On the plus side, it is a single strap from the center of the holster that then Y's out to 2 straps. However, the way you secure it to a belt is closed loops you have to feed your belt through.....come on. Other double velcro systems are much better. So much better that I cut the loops that came with this thing off and replaced them with other velcro loops. They're exactly the same dimensions and fit right in the buckles.

Finally, I have some small concerns about quality and durability. The plastic feels cheap and the retention mechanism creaks and squeaks like cheap plastic rubbing against cheap plastic. But nothing has broken yet and it is extremely comfortable and easy to use. (Posted on 1/14/2020)

Could not be happier Review by Michael Simi Valley

Just received my Drop Leg Holster. I have a Glock 17 with an extended ported barrel and an extended Mag release so I knew I'd need to do a little Dremel work. Easy enough to remove the thumb lock and use just the adjustable trigger housing retaining system. The straps to adjust the leg and waist / holster height are easy to setup to my individual comfort. Being able to adjust the cant angle of the pistol (holster) was a big reason why I choose a Alien Gear Holster - works exactly as I expected. This thing is extremely comfortable, well made and a great design. (Posted on 5/28/2019)

Shape shift drop leg holster Review by Kyle

Looks great but performs poorly. The buttons are sticky and get hung up as well. My glock 19 is hard to draw no matter what the retention level is set to. Does not accommodate some after market parts either as in extended mag releases, suppressor height sights, threaded barrels. I knew it would not sport a glock with an rmr but with all the other things it does not accommodate I only have one of my 19s I can carry and thats my daily run of the mill glock that I dont want to carry on my thigh but am stuck with.
