1. Concealment Express - IWB KYDEX Holster
Top-rated: 28,765 ratings | 1000+ answered questions
Highlight: Easily adjustable retention pressure and carry angle.
Helpful review: "I'm a retired cop and have carried concealed for 33 years, if that matters to how you view my opinion. This was purchased for daily use with a brand new pistol, so first I visually inspected the inside to make sure there were no burrs, etc... that might scratch or mar the pistol. There were none!
You really need a very rigid 1.5" wide tactical belt for the clip to grab on to, and it grabs onto mine quite solidly. The holster retains the pistol by a section that impinges in the trigger guard forward of the trigger (so no risk of it activating the trigger). It hold just enough to keep it from coming loose when I jump up and down and move all around.
Then unholstering the pistol is a snap. I really appreciate the solid, positive feel and sound when holstering it so you know the part holding the trigger guard is in the right place. The holster is lightly flared to facilitate easier re-holstering, which is crucial because in many self-defense situations you need to holster your firearm to switch to hands-on or pepper spray. If you're carrying a pistol but not pepper spray, you have a HUGE gap in your preparedness to deal with conflict; get a pocket sized one that is rated at law enforcement strength).
I'm a fat guy (not the guy in the photo - this is someone else wearing my holster), and as long as I wear my belt on my spare tire, instead of below it, it is very easy to draw when placed anywhere from below my belly button across to my side. If it is below the gut, the gut is an impediment to drawing, so plan to wear your pants a bit high, and the but of the firearm sticks out and makes a visible imprint on the shirt you're wearing.
I also considered a shoulder holster for this reason, but with the thin Hawaiian shirts I wear I thought the imprint of the shoulder holster straps might be a give-away. The plastic is nicely rigid and good looking. The screws are well plated and secure. I have not felt the need to try to adjust either the cant of the firearm or the tightness of the grip of the holster on the gun, but both are possible.
I have always carried in my waistband ("appendix carry"), usually with a t-shirt between me and the holster, with an oversize shirt over the firearm and not tucked in. That is how I will continue to carry, though there is enough material on the skin side of the holster to protect the firearm from contact with the skin.
This design does not really allow you to tuck in a shirt in a way that won't draw attention. On the other hand, it holds close enough to the body that when I tried a properly sized t-shirt to cover it, it concealed the firearm pretty well. But, I will continue to wear the official uniform of fat men with concealed pistols: a Hawaiian shirt or an oversized sweatshirt. If someone could make a bulletproof Hawaiian shirt, a lot of ex-cops would buy them!
Last observation. There is a major jump in price points between this holster and the next level up, like about $100. Unless you want a holster that allows you to tuck in your shirt, or that carries a spare magazine and has hinges to conform to your body, I don't see any reason to go to the more expensive holsters. If you go to the range and notice a fat guy smiling as he draws and fires at the dynamic steel targets, it may be me so say hi!" — T.S.

2. ComfortTac - Ultimate Belly Band Holster for Concealed Carry
Top-rated: 34,961 ratings | 1000+ answered questions
Highlight: Compatible with popular handguns by Glock, Smith and Wesson, Sig Sauer, Ruger, Kahr, Beretta, Springfield, Taurus, Kimber, Rock Island, Bersa, Kel Tec, Walther, and more.
Helpful review: "I thought this would be just another Spandex-type wrap-around with an additional slot to use as a holster... I was wrong! This does wrap around, secured with Velcro, like a Spandex wrap, but the quality is far better than just a plain brace wrap.
The holster is integrated into the belt with a very positive snap closure. The magazine pouch is adjustable with a new form of Velcro I have never seen. It sticks anywhere on the wrap, but doesn't have the Velcro feel to it. I have sub-compact handguns up to full size, military-issue (all steel) handguns. I tried them all in this holster.
EVERY pistol I have, from my tiny .22 Derringer to my Browning Hi-Power and Tokarev military surplus pistols, fits into the holster, nice and snug (I don't know how they did that).
The magazine pouch holds my single-stack Tokarev magazines or even a 13 round double-stack. I can fit two Tokarev single stack or one double-stack Hi-Power mag in the pouch. The mag pouch has a Velcro strap to adjust for thickness or length of the magazine and holds them in snug, but not too tight where it is tough to pull out. I turned the magazine pouch upside down when carrying one mag for easier swapping of magazines (old habit)... even with a fully-loaded 9mm, 13 round steel magazine, the inverted carry is secure. The strap holds it snug, releases with a tug on the strap and the mag still holds until I pull it out (I wouldn't say it is equal to a competition plastic/polymer mag holder, but this is for concealed carry, not competition).
Regardless of which pistol I choose to conceal carry, or where I need to have the rig on my body, the belt allows me to pull it up to my armpits or around my thigh (IF I wore a skirt... I don't, but I tried to see if it would work, it does).
Whether it is up under my armpits or around my waist, even with a Tokarev or 1911 or the Hi-Power, this does not print. The good thing about the holster design is the snap strap holding the pistol in the holster. It can be positioned to positively lock your pistol regardless of the shape of the handgun
I can confidently carry in "Condition One" with the 1911 or Tokarevs. The strap can be placed between the hammer and firing pin with a round in the chamber, safety on and hammer cocked. Regardless the size of pistol, that holster strap holds the weapon in place.
I totally recommend this "Belly Band" holster for anyone who is lawfully carrying concealed. I have custom leather twin shoulder holsters for my Hi-Powers and my Tokarevs that cost over $200 each. In order to use them, I have to dress a specific manner to have them be accessible. This Belly Band holster puts my twin rigs to shame, being able to be used as an underarm shoulder rig or a belly rig (appendix carry, belly carry, anywhere and any position on your torso).
The band is comfortable and does not pinch or scratch. So as far as discreet conceal carry, this product is ideal for one-pistol carry without having to wear a baggy jacket to keep from printing. I wore a plain T-shirt to a dentist visit and the dentist/assistants never noticed I was armed. It's a great band/holster. Recommend 100%!" — Jayci

3. Nehostertfy - Tactical Drop Leg Holster
Top-rated: 9,063 ratings | 281 answered questions
Highlight: Fully adjustable; fits 19-27” of thigh circumference.
Helpful review: "I love my new gun holster. I enjoy wearing my weapon on a my leg because it keeps it at the ready and doesn't get in my way like some other holsters do. I've tried ones that go under the arm or in different parts of the waistband or in the bra but none of those are comfortable to me. Wearing this on my leg is very comfortable. It clips over my belt and that part extend to support most of the weight of my weapon. It has two straps which go around my leg, both of which are adjustable. It is adjustable enough for even a very large person's leg. There is a special little pocket to hold an extra clip. The main compartment has an overlapping Velcro feature that allows you to open it completely if you need to or to fix your weapon tighter or looser depending on the size of your gun. The entire contraption is very well-made. It is constructed of high-quality canvas material and sewn very professionally. I would expect to find such high quality materials at a high end sporting goods store at any mall in Middle America. It's a very good device and I happily give it to solid thumbs up." — Troy M.
Trending review: "To be honest, I bought this for a Tomb Raider costume but my cousin who's a cop actually wanted it to use with his own gun and said I would be wasting it for a costume after he tried it on! He has an assortment of guns and said this fits all of the ones he owns. He told me he especially appreciated the belt holster to keep things secure. All of the reviews I read were mostly with guys so I was a little afraid that this wouldn't fit me (I'm 5'2" and 115 lbs) but it fit perfectly. The great thing is that it's adjustable and fit me as well as my cousin who weighs about 60 lbs. more than me and is a lot taller. The material, stitching and clips are sturdy and durable. Like many things in this world, it was built for right-handed people. Being a leftie it's a little different for me but like everything else I've adjusted to it. Overall, a great find!" — Ned G.
Reassuring review: "Concur with most Reviewers - materials, construction/sewing and fitting are superb. FYI - it accommodates my Glock 20 (full size) with rail-mounted DefendTec M1C tactical LED light securely. Having said that, I found the weight of my Glock and spare magazine hanging/rubbing on my outside knee joint extremely uncomfortable; but herein is the best attribute of this holster - its adaptability. I removed the upper leg restraint (some of the extraneous belt attachments) and configured it to resemble a regular belt-attached holster (thus creating a normal right-hand draw or a left side "cross-draw" holster - I adapted the lower leg restraint to act as a "tie-down"). It works wonderfully. Because of these adaptations. I'd very satisfyingly recommend this all-weather holster vs. a more expensive, less adaptable leather iteration. Incidentally, HUABOLA CALYN and AMAZON Customer Service(s) were exemplary with their assistance/patience in my search for an effective holster." — Retired USCG CWO

4. Concealment Express - IWB KYDEX Holster
Top-rated: 14,415 ratings | 1000+ answered questions
Highlight: Integrated full sweat shield.
Helpful review: "I've been in law enforcement more than 25 years, and over that time I've tried a lot of holsters. I have variety of different holsters for different weapons, purposes, and clothing.
My Glock 43 has become my EDC off duty pistol. I ordered this holster not expecting too much based on the very reasonable price. But of all my holsters, this one's become my favorite. Here's why:
1 - It's secure. There's literally no way it could accidentally come out. I read one reviewer saying he didn't like it because it was 'too hard' to draw his weapon. But unless you're Jerry Miculek, I think you want some retention. The holster has an adjustment screw for tension, and maybe he cranked his down thinking it should be tight. I dunno, but my retention is perfect. You definitely have to get a handful of the grip and pull it out, but it's not so much that you have to worry about breaking the clip or yanking the whole thing off your belt. Like Little Red Riding Hood's porridge, for me it's juuust right. While I'm on the secure thing, I should mention that I'm wrong-handed. Another leftie complained that his mag release was being actuated by the holster in certain positions. I tried to replicate his problem with my rig, and could not. Apparently the company's solution was to custom make him a holster that covered the entire mag release. Now, while I would personally never want that, it was a solution that worked for him. I just wanted to point out that it's not a problem for all lefties, and that this company's customer service is second to none.
2 - It's comfortable. Not sure if you can see by the photos, but the entire outside edge of the holster has been rounded off by the manufacturer. It's a minor thing, but it becomes major when it's cutting into your skin. This one doesn't. Another reviewer said that it was 'ridiculously bulky'. I didn't find that at all. There's no getting around the fact that you're stuffing a pistol in your waistband... that's going to add some bulk no matter which IWB holster you choose.
3 - It's adjustable. I like that I can change the cant a little depending on whether I'm using the Appendix or Side placement. That tiny bit of angle seems to make a big deal when you're appendix carrying and bending over. And I like that I can move the entire holster in two seconds if I need to, by just pulling out on the clip a little and sliding it around my waist.
4 - It's slim and minimalist, covers what it needs to and nothing more. Other than the very back end of the slide, there's nothing metal hitting your skin. No salty sweat constantly on your slide, making it rust.
5 - It's easy to move or remove. The clip has two fairly large, rubbery grommets between it and the holster. Other similar holsters I have, have either a thinner grommet (probably an O-ring), or nothing, and that makes it much harder to pull out the clip enough to get it off of your belt or slide it over belt loops to move it from appendix to side. Or it snaps. This one pulls out fairly easily, yet seems to hold it very securely until you do pull on it. And the clip's end is molded like a barb, which will stay on your belt.
6- Doesn’t collapse when I draw, like a fabric one, so I can re-holster without looking down at it. LEOs will understand the importance of this.
7 - Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee (must register on their website).
8 - Made in the good old US of A.
And as a bonus, it just looks awesome. I'll definitely be ordering more of these for my other Glocks." — J. Bourne

5. AIKATE - Deep Concealment Shoulder/Underarm Holster
Top-rated: 6,445 ratings | 199 answered questions
Highlight: Great for men and women, and available in two sizes.
Helpful review: "I’ve tried (and have) them all - pocket concealments holsters (Front and rear), IWB, leg holsters, ankle, frame clips... they just don’t work when you are slimmer and don’t wear baggy clothes. The first day I used this with a .380, I actually forgot it was there within 2-3 hours. It fits well under a fairly snug shirt, and not visible with the FA just forward of your armpit. At worst case it looks like you have something in your front shirt pocket. It should work with most small frame 380/9mm single stack (6-7 rnd) pistols as the pocket is elastic. It is held in with an elastic Velcro strap. I work construction and mechanical work, and it keeps it secure. After 7 months, it’s still my every day holster. If you need the shoulder strap to be a bit longer, get a roll of VELCRO Brand ONE-WRAP Tape 1” x 5’ Roll, and add to it. - Works well. This held up very well for daily wear for 2 years. Just replaced it with a new one. Great holster." — P.D.
Trending review: "I'm a big guy with a big gun. I hated carrying on my hip, made driving and sitting uncomfortable. Was looking for a shoulder strap but was unsure about the looser hanging leather ones. This design is exactly what I needed. I wear a 3XL and the 51" strap fits great around my chest with room to spare, keeps super tight, and actually lets me carry my full size CZ-75 SP-01 and not actually feel it on my body all day. I wore it for about 10 hours today, and put up a tarp shed with the holster on, and it didn't hinder my movement or create any hot spots at all. I couldn't feel it all actually and was really impressed by how comfortable it made carrying my full sized steel frame gun with a full 17 round magazine. I didn't even feel the need to take it off when I got home, if I had to compare it to anything it would be a great knee strap that stays in place and does its job. One more thing to add, its basically invisible under a button up shirt or zip up hoodie. I wore a button up flannel over my shirt and it looked normal with no bulges. Nobody will be able to tell you are wearing this unless you specifically reveal it. Great for Big and Tall guys, Great for 20 dollars, Comfortable, supportive, and concealing. Best 20 dollars I've ever spent on a holster. I don't know who owns the original design, but whoever invented this style did a great job." — Kayvon C.
Reassuring review: "I'm not a small guy but not that big and this holster fit very comfortably. I was able to easily adjust it so it would fit me just where it needs to be. This can be seen when wearing shirts and button downs, tested it. With that said, if you are wearing a sweater, jacket or anything that is loose fitting or bulky, this cannot be seen. However, I use this for work, training and when at the shooting range. Whether I'm wearing it or just practicing, when it's on, it doesn't move too much around when I'm trying to reach for my gun. The only thing I didn't like, but this was due to a previous shoulder injury, was the strap that goes over my shoulder wasn't padded enough for me. To fix this I just took a laptop strap and trimmed it to fit. This provided the extra padding that I was looking for, again, I suffered a shoulder injury and usually have to have extra padding for any strap that I wear over my shoulder." — Ronny Acosta

6. Relentless Tactical - The Defender Leather IWB Holster
Top-rated: 7,552 ratings | 1000+ answered questions
Highlight: For S&W M&P Shield, Glock, Springfield XD & XDS, and all similar sized handguns.
Helpful review: "In general, this product has gotten good reviews. But if you're like me, I always go to the worst reviews first to see what led folks to leave poor feedback. Most of the poor reviews seemed to involve stupid people who ordered the wrong thing; thus, their poor review was a result of either their own error or Amazon's shipping error - either way, it doesn't/shouldn't reflect the product.
Some of the valid concerns raised were ones that worried me and caused me to think carefully before ordering. The main one involved the quality of the leather. I bit the bullet anyway and ordered one, figuring I could just return it if it didn't meet my quality standards. Upon opening the package, I knew at once that the negative reviews with regard to the quality of the leather were not accurate.
The leather is a very fine quality and well worth the $39 cost of the holster. It's not Galco- or Bianchi-quality, but it's also not $85-$130, so folks shouldn't expect it to be. Furthermore, the stitching is very strong and well done, and the belt clip is a very sturdy steel that ain't coming undone from the holster anytime soon.
The holster also comes with some neat extras - some stickers, a bracelet, and a note from the makers that offers some general information about the holster, its care, etc...
Most importantly, it offers details of the lifetime warranty, which is always a true gesture of a craftsman's faith in his products and his loyalty to his customers. The holster is amazing for a $39 holster. I can't recommend it enough. And the company itself seems like the kind of company with integrity and a care for its customers that is rare these days.
I first tried it in the 1 o'clock position but that was pretty uncomfortable while sitting. Next I tried the 4 o'clock spot. Ta da!! It is comfortable both sitting and standing.
Holster is holding up very well. Very little signs of wear and I carry more days than not. Incredibly satisfied with this holster. Buying another for a gift today!
I managed to snag the metal clip and bend it beyond repair. Contacted seller to purchase replacement clip. They sent one at no cost!! I'm beyond impressed with this company. I might have to purchase another gun just to purchase another holster!! Holster is still holding up well." — Chris Hill

7. LPV - Ankle Holster for Concealed Carry
Top-rated: 3,273 ratings | 154 answered questions
Highlight: Lifetime warranty.
Helpful review: "I have only been using the holster for about a week, but so far I really like it. I carry a S&W 9mm Shield with an extra magazine and both fit well in their respective pockets. The holster is very comfortable and I have used it every day since it arrived.
I tried an in the waist band holster previously, but found that I did not carry my pistol because of the type of clothing I wear. I like to tuck in my shirt, so the waist band holster didn't work for me.
I usually wear tactical pants which are loose around my ankles, but I also occasionally wear dress pants. I am able to use the holster with both types of pants with no problem. I also like the way you can fold the holster after you take it off with the gun and magazine still in it. I place it on my night stand next to my bed at night.
The only concern I have is the stitching where the top strap attaches to the bottom strap. The stitching on mine appears a little loose and my concern is that over time it may break from repeated use, but so far this has not been a problem.
I also like the fact that this holster has a small tab where the barrel of the gun sticks out. This helps keep the metal from rubbing against your ankle.
Other similar products that I looked at did not have this feature. In addition, I like the snaps the hold the pistol and magazine. Similar products use Velcro in this area. The Velcro used to hold the top and bottom straps to your leg work very well and allow me to adjust the holster for the best fit. I definitely recommend this holster. It is only a few dollars more than others that I have seen and in my opinion it is well worth the extra money.
After wearing this holster on a daily basis for several months, I am sorry to say that it has not lived up to my initial expectations. I still really like the design, but the Velcro fasteners no long hold, which makes the holster unusable. Apparently LPV is aware of this problem, because after I had the original holster for about a month, a new one showed up in my mail box (at no charge) with about twice as much of the same type of Velcro as the one that I originally purchased. I was hoping this would fix the problem, but it did not. After several weeks of using the replacement holster on a daily basis, the Velcro on it also failed. I think a more aggressive type of Velcro is needed. At this point I am not able to use the holster. I hope LPV can make improvements to this product that will make it more reliable and longer lasting because I really like the overall design and this is my preferred type of holster .
Due to the weak Velcro, I did not use my holster for about two months after my last update, but one day I came across two Velcro cinch straps that were long enough to fit around my ankle and my leg just below the knee. I used this arrangement for several weeks and it worked reasonably well, but it was not ideal, because the ankle strap had to go around the outside of the pistol and sometimes it would side off. The strap near my knee worked well and remained secure.
My next thought was to purchase some Velcro that was more aggressive and sew it on over the existing Velcro. I found some sew on type Velcro at Walmart and a friend, with a heavy duty sewing machine, agreed to sew it on for me.
Before I had a chance to give my friend the Velcro, FPV sent me an updated version with heavy duty Velcro sewn on in the same place that I had planned to have it sewn. What they did was sew on only the loop side of the Verco (fuzzy side) and use the same hooks (rough side) as the original. I have been wearing the new design for about two weeks now and it is performing well.
The only recommendation I would make is to increase the length of the new Verco piece on the upper part near the knee by 1 to 2 inches because the hooks extend past the new Verco and only grips to a short section of the new loops. The Verco at the ankle is long enough.
The holster that was sent to me appears to be one of the original holsters with the short Verco hooks that was modified by adding a piece of of Verco with more aggressive loops (fuzzy side). The design previous to his one had about twice as much velcro (hook side). I think it would be better if they used a longer section of hooks along with the new more aggressive loops.
I think the holster that I now have is likely to last much longer with the modification that was made. I am please to see that FPV has listened to customer feedback and has made changes to improve their product. This is still the type of holster I prefer to use and with these improvements, I plan to wear it on a daily basis." — John W. Banger III

8. Pole.Craft - Glock 19 IWB Kydex Holster
Top-rated: 4,296 ratings | 82 answered questions
Highlight: Tailored for all popular Glock handguns.
Helpful review: "Very thin and comfortable. For the price, you’re not going to find anything better. If you’re thinking about getting one of those cheap $10 - $20 soft nylon/polyester type of holsters with the metal clip (uncle mikes/amazon el-cheapo/etc...), do yourself a favor and get this instead.
For just a couple extra bucks and free shipping with prime, this thing is light years ahead. In my opinion this holsters is light years ahead of anything else in its price range. A few years ago, I was using a no name kydex sheath that I paid $50 for and it was just fine, but the only advantage it had over this one is that there was a little more adjustment in the carry options because there were 3 sets of holes you could move the clip to, depending on how high or low you wanted the clip to ride.
For less than half the price, this holster feels identical. I never even used the extra holes on my old one, this one comes set up pretty much exactly where I had the old one set up. The clip comes slightly loose so you can find the perfect angle or “cant” that works best for you, so once you decide on that, you should tighten the screws so that it will stay where you set it up to.
Retention is excellent, and it’s adjustable. I really wish I could give 7 stars. Shipping was insanely fast (it was in my mailbox less than 24 hours after I ordered it). I seriously can’t think of a single complaint.
Might be nice if it had a metal clip instead of plastic, but I’m not worried about that at all because the plastic clip feels extremely tough and strong. If you are trying to decide whether or not to buy this holster, just go ahead and get it.
You are not going to find anything even remotely close, in this price range. When I can afford it, I will be upgrading to a formed horse hide holster from the Glock store, but I’m in no rush now that I have this one. Trust me right now, you want this holster. I will be buying one for all of my carry guns and I will be buying one for my wife’s carry gun as well. I can not even explain how happy I am with this purchase. They could easily charge 2 or 3 times the price and people would still buy it." — Kevin C.

9. Gun & Flower - Taurus G2C / G3C Holster
Top-rated: 4,986 ratings | 103 answered questions
Highlight: This G2C Taurus holster is tailor-made and also compatible with Taurus G3C, PT111 Millennium G2, and PT140.
Helpful review: "I just applied for my CCW permit, and needed a good holster for my gun; and this is it! I recently purchased at Taurus PT111 G2C and this holster fits it like a glove, and I am confident that it won’t be falling apart easily. I’ve tested out the holster around the house, for hours, and completely forgot it was there; the comfort level is perfect. It’s easily concealable as well, which I was worried it wouldn’t be; this is my first CCW holster, so I wasn’t 100% sure what to get. As a young woman, who knows I can’t physically take out a male assailant, I am confident that my gun will be held safely at my side if I ever need it. Now I just need my permit, so I can actually take this outside my house!" — Rita Gelzer
Trending review: "As a man who is not of the public's "Ideal" figure ( i have a belly and wear over a size 36 in pants), I am very happy with this purchase. This product fits my "item" VERY well. It even came with a screwdriver to tighten the fit to how I want it. It doesn't poke me for how I wear it, doesn't feel like it wants to move around, and it's not uncomfortable for me to wear. For the price, you can't beat it. I see no reason to spend 3, 4, 5x the price on other ones that get the same thing accomplished as this one does. If this does break at some point in time, I'm definitely going to buy this one again. These are just my opinions and experiences with this. Might not be the same for everyone, but it works for me." — Adrian Rauschenberg
Reassuring review: "Thinking the price was right for a holster to have on hand as a back up, I fully anticipated just tossing this in the drawer. It never made it to the drawer... It's a lot more comfortable than I expected, required very minimal (1x) retention adjustment, and seems well made. First use I asked my wife if I was printing at all, she scanned hard then said, "which side is it on again?" That's all the answer I needed. Holstering provides a nice audible and tactile "click", still gives it up nicely for a good fluid draw, AND and aggressive inverted shake test results in a still-seated weapon. Trigger guard and safety are both fully protected, easy on and off the belt. I having nothing bad to say about this holster, I appreciate the level of quality for as little as I paid. Have recommended to others, and would definitely buy again." — M. Petey
Most-discussed review: "Concealed holsters are a nightmare to go shopping for and I bought this one off of a whim because the price was right and it had good reviews. I've bought three concealed holsters previously and they are all worthless and uncomfortable. Normally I just carry my G2C loose in my waistband because of this. With my change of employment, the type of clothing I wear isn't accommodating for having a pistol snug in my pants. This holster takes care of that and it is surprisingly comfortable and secure. Very happy with my purchase and the manufacturer that produced it. No matter what profession someone is in, exercising your second amendment right should be important to you and those around you." — Timmy Tylor
Updated review: "Recently purchased my first handgun and plan on getting a concealed carry license. After doing a lot of research and checking out holsters at all different price points and styles, I decided for my first holster I will just try this one out. When I received it, my Taurus G3C fit like a glove. Material feels tough and durable. Retention and cant are easily adjustable to your perfect setting. Comes with a screwdriver for adjustment and a spare/bigger belt loop clip. Very comfortable, I was surprised how great it felt. I expected carrying a handgun to be less comfortable generally but I was wrong. Definitely a great value and perfect holster to start carrying with. I might actually just stick with this one in the future due to comfort and price!" — Thomas Riley

10. UAMAL - 9mm Gun Holster
Top-rated: 6,557 ratings | 108 answered questions
Highlight: Fits popular handguns by Glock, Ruger, Taurus, S&W, Walther, Springfield, Sig Sauer, Beratta, SCCY, and similar ones.
Helpful review: "Great versatile product. I was able to fit my Glock 27 with ease after snipping away a few stitches. The interchangeable elastic retention strap makes the gun feel secured. A little peace of mind not having to worry about the gun slipping out of the holster while you wrestle someone." — Troy Yale
Trending review: "I purchased 4 other nylon holsters and returned them because I did not like the fit. Finally, I purchased this, made the necessary cut to the thread and, viola! It fits my Walther PPQ 22 5" like it was made for it. The gun slides in and out smoothly without snagging. Not sure how I will end up liking the elastic strap but so far, so good. It keeps the gun snug in the holster and is easy to pop the snap upon drawing. The belt clip is one of the easier I've experienced installing and it is pretty low profile. It is made to fit up to a 2" belt and I wear 1.5" belts so that makes it shift back and forth a little when worn OWB but it stays close to my body. Seems fine for IWB. It would be cool if they offered an extra smaller belt clip. It seems a little more stable with a leather belt than with a nylon belt. I consider the belt clip issue a small one and not a big enough deal to take away a star. I'm so glad to have found a nylon holster that is low profile and fits my gun perfectly that I give it a full 5 stars. And the price - come on, such a deal!" — Lens Fisher
Reassuring review: "I bought two of these. One to fit my Bersa380cal and the other for my Glock 40. They are comfortable and fit both guns. For the Glock 40cal simply cut the stitching where instruction tell you and the larger gun fits nicely in the holster. For the 380cal no cutting is needed. The metal clip can be removed in you are going to keep it in your car instead of holstering the weapon. The clip does hold the holster nicely to your waistband. I have drawn my weapon with ease to practice. There is an elastic hammer strap that snaps to keep the weapon secure. I am very pleased with this price and performance of this holster." — George Wyatt
Most-discussed review: "It's not Kydex, it's not leather, it's not beautiful... it's cheap and effective and that's exactly what I needed! I take care of horses and dogs every day. When I come in, whatever I have on will be dirty, destroyed, covered in hay and animal hair. This holster is perfect for me and extremely versatile. I can carry it IWB, OWB, appendix 4 o'clock and even in the pocket of my cargo pants. It's ambidextrous, you just move the clip from side to side and if you cut the string down the middle it will expand to fit almost any firearm. It's perfect and I don't have to worry about messing up my really nice ones." — Mary Greenwell
Updated review: "I hesitated to buy this because I thought, what can you get for $20? When it arrived, I was surprised. The materials and sewing is high quality. I cut the threads allowing me to fit my gun into the holster, and it fit like a glove. It is ambidextrous, IWB or OWB and is comfortable to wear. Perfect in every way. I would recommend this to anyone who needs an affordable concealed carry holster." — Charles Lane
