    My experience was bad. I returned it after one day.

    Things I hated:
    1.Reholstering was non existent. Once you pull your weapon, you have to loosen your pants too much and trying to use two hands to re-holster a hot weapon on your strong side was a pain and nothing short of a SNAFU.
    2. Using the thumb snap that low on your belt was difficult. No doubt I would have ripped the damn thing out of my pants if I needed too.
    3. Spare mags are just forward of the weapon on the strong side. Makes zero sense to me unless I'm using a wheel gun.
    3. When I finally got the damn thing tightened down to actually have some retention, it would flare out to my side. Even worse when I sat down.

    Things I liked:
    1. They took it back and refunded my money in 2 days.

    Get some training and your understanding of what makes a good holster will be clearer

    You guys are too rough on this product. The only thing wrong with it is it is $70- $75 bucks too much. (Honestly, I wouldn't' wear that to a booger-pickin' contest).

    See posts above for further clarification.

    Try www.ubgholsters.com for a MUCH better product at a MUCH better price. And use coupon code OKShooters at checkout for a nice discount.

    I have a good kydex holster but regardless of the belt I’ve tried I get tired of my pants/shorts sagging. Think I may just act like I’m 80 and start wearing suspenders.

    Don't want to sound to rough but I'd go with the suspenders.

    What belts have you tried? Anything with a steel insert? A good belt, key word good, makes all the difference in the world. To further clarify good, it should be specifically made to hold firearms on your waist.

    I’ve used a double thick leather belt from Crossbreed and it worked well for about 5 years. I now have an aliengear belt with a steel insert. The aliengear leather isn’t the highest quality, but the steel insert really makes that thing stiff. I could hang bricks from that thing and it wouldn’t pull my pants down. It’s held up well for about 2 years now. I don’t carry daily, but I wear that belt daily.

    Are you well endowed in your posterior? Having some man curves helps stuff to stay put. A total lack of hips and ass may make any belt tougher to keep up. Since I’m totally bootylicious, my stuff stays up. YMMV!
