Overview

It was exciting to receive my first IWB (inside the waistband) holster in the mail, and I opted for their great dual holster deal so my wife could use one for her Glock 42 subcompact .380acp, and I could use one for my Glock 43 subcompact 9mm. The holster is reasonably comfortable considering the size, and holds the pistol secure, but yet loose enough to easily draw the pistol from the waist. I paid roughly $50 for the holsters in total (about $25 each), which is considerably less than the competitors that I’ve seen in the holster market.

Pros: The holster is definitely comfortable, and can be worn for an extended period of time (within reason). It’s fairly easy to put on, and take off, and can be worn with shorts, pants, sweat pants, and most other clothing. You can adjust the cant (angle) of the clips, and you can even also replace the green buffer pads so the holster sits tighter or less tight against the inside of your pants. It comes standard with an Allen wrench that can be used to adjust the retention screws either loosening or tightening the retention of the firearm. I have personally found the standard retention to work for my purposes. The stitching is well done, and the overall holster is well-made. It should last for a long time.

Cons: If you are someone like me that likes to practice the quick draw to ensure you’re ready for whatever situation presents itself to you, beware of this holster! The round curvature of the holster that sits behind the back of the slide and beaver tail of the pistol is cut too large, in my opinion. If you practice drawing your firearm repeatedly it is easy to rub your thumb knuckle raw causing you to bleed. The reason that this probably happens is because the proper way to grab your firearm is to try your best to grab it up as high as possible to the slide thereby ensuring a solid grip while pulling it out of the holster. Because of the design of the holster, practicing the draw is not comfortable. I guess, however, that in the event you actually need to use the holster you’ll only draw it once, and not repeatedly, so it’s probably not too big of a deal.


Additionally, the holster itself does print, in my opinion, excessively. It may be that I feel the foreign object on my body so I am more paranoid that others will see, or it may be that when I know the holster is in my waistband that I’m looking for it when I check it out in the mirror before leaving the house. To me it’s noticeable when you wear tighter clothes, and less noticeable when you wear looser fitting clothes. I am the owner of only one inside the waistband holster, so I have nothing else to compare it to. If I purchase another one in the future, I will update this review to give feedback based on my experience with others on the market.

Final Thoughts

All in all, I would recommend this holster based on the price. If I knew what I know now, I would probably consider trying an alternative option instead of re-buying this Alien Gear one, but that’s just my opinion based on my preferences. You can’t beat the price, but I suspect that you can beat the comfort and concealability, although I won’t be able to address that until I try another one out.
