1. ComfortTac Ultimate Belly Band Gun Holster for Concealed Carry

Top-rated: 45,959 ratings | 1000+ answered questions

Highlight: The Large, adjustable neoprene waistband on this concealed carry holster for men and women fits up to a 44" belly while the XL fits up to a 54" belly.

Helpful review: "I'm 5"5 and 118 pounds, and I've tried many ways to conceal my 9mm S&W shield. If you're a small female, it's nearly impossible. However this product is the closest I've gotten to being able to conceal and being almost completely unnoticeable. The band itself is comfortable, but if you're not used to wearing something of weight on your belly/hips, it might take some getting used to. I'm an army medic and I'm used to the weight of my gear, so I think this belly band is pretty comfortable. It does make me feel a little fat when I'm sitting down though. If you wear tight pants or jeans (like I am in my picture) you'll have to wear the band higher up on your belly because if your pants overlap the end of your pistol then that pushes the top outward and then you have something sticking out under your shirt. So I found that not wearing the band halfway under my pants (like in the product picture) works better for me. I still can't use this product to conceal on my hips/sides. It's noticeable. I wear it in the center, right over my belly button. Also if you wear it half underneath your pants it blocks access to the clip to the strap that's over your pistol. However I gave this product 5 stars because I can successfully conceal in at least one way. It did take me a couple days of playing around with it to figure out what works best. And the tighter the better- the tighter you Velcro the band to you, the closer it holds the pistol to your body. Center, up and not under my jeans, and tight works best for me." — Kaley

Smooth edges, comfortable when sitting down (back & appendix), truly concealable for a relatively small-framed woman or man. Husband had to order one after trying mine. Don't hesitate to buy!" — Lindsey P.

Top-rated: 9,614 ratings | 830 answered questions

Highlight: This is a universal gun clip for semi-automatic handguns. Fits all manufacturers and all calibers.

Helpful review: "Upon first trying to install this onto my Roger, I didn't even read the directions. I just jumped into it, scratching my firearm and getting mega frustrated. I sent the company a nasty email, and requested a return. The owner promptly emailed me back, catering to my frustration and offering to help in any way. Waiting a few days, I went back to try installing it again. I read the directions this time, and was installed in less than 2 minutes. THIS DOES FIT THE FIREARM. There are a few reviews stating that it doesn't, but all you have to do is follow the directions. Thank you Stan, and sorry for the rotten email. THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT! Five stars!" — Patrick

6. Drop Leg Holster - Right Handed Tactical Thigh Gun Holster

Top-rated: 8,637 ratings | 269 answered questions

Highlight: Wrap-Around design with adjustable strap. Mostly for Right Hand, Right Thigh. Dual thigh straps with non-slip backing and quick-release buckles.

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." — TOP 500 REVIEWER

7. Concealment Express IWB KYDEX Holster - 100% US Made

Top-rated: 14,338 ratings | 1000+ answered questions

Highlight: Full length Sweat Guard & Rear Sight Shield to protect your weapon from sweat. Fiber Reinforced Stealth Belt Clip, so no one knows you are carrying.

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. I posted an end view photo showing it's flat as could be. 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." — Jason Bourne *VINE VOICE*

8. GHFY Tactical Drop Leg Holster

Top-rated: 5,963 ratings | 229 answered questions

Highlight: Very comfortable and easy to adjust. Great for operators, or outdoorsmen who want to comfortably carry a sidearm. Crawl, run, jump and rock-climb freely without worrying about weapons dropping.

Helpful review: "Honestly, I was just looking for a drop holster to try and determine if I liked the position without spending much money. That being said, I'm very pleased with how modular this holster is and it feels pretty secure on my thigh. I've only used it with my full size FNS-9 and a spare mag for it, I'm confident it would accommodate any from my Bersa Thunder 380 to my S&W 686. Smaller than a full size (i.e. Glock 17, M&P 9, XDM, etc.) might be dwarfed inside this holster. Again, there's plenty of adjustment to go bigger or smaller." —
