Comfort Holsters
Anybody ever tried these holsters? They advertise a comfortable and easier to conceal package. Plus ever since I got a memory foam bed anything that advertises cooling gel catches my eye.

I just want to see if anybody has used one or read an impartial review.

Have never seen these before. A bit pricey for kydex at $125 but it certainly is a unique design...although I don't really see how their configuration pulls the pistol grip in closer than a good leather & kydex IWB holster does. Was recently looking for a holster for each of my larger caliber carry size pistols but I see they don't make one for either of them even though they're common model pistols. Given the full molded kydex shell, having something against the skin is excellent but will the gel and whatever covers it hold up under constant wear? yes, it's 'warranted' but only as long as they stay in business. I, personally, don't buy from any online company that doesn't include its brick and mortar address and phone number on it's website.

Holsters are usually comforting not comfortable. You have your basic holster designs that shield your body from getting poked for under $75. I don't see how these people can reinvent the wheel.

These holsters are about as comfortable as a holster can get for a much better price.

In the end, it is a hell of a lot cheaper and easier to get a pistol you can carry in your pocket. You should have no problem carrying a G19 or a S&W model 10 in your pocket. I have carried both at one time or another in my pocket for years.

I carry a 4" 629 OWB, shirt out. Many holsters available in kydex or leather. Some high ride and pancake styles may suit you. IWB IS NOT THE ONLY WAY.

Looks like it adds a lot of thickness to the holster itself, defeating the purpose of CCW. No way I'm spending $125 on a holster that puts more thickness into the equation and is basically a leather and kydex holster to begin with.

Wonder if that "gel" freezes?

Here is decent article to help you select holsters that are comfortable and affordable.

No holster that attaches to your belt will ever be comfortable.

Some are less comfortable than others but I've tried em all... and for 1 reason or another, found them all lacking.

The $15 elastic belly band worn low around the hips allows you more flexibility of position, does not drag your pants down, is thinner than ANY holster...

...and will not leave you wondering "where" to put your gun when nature calls and your forced to conduct a class 2 download in a public RR. ;)

Not to mention a good fitting belly band will allow you to carry a real full sized pistol with a 5" barrel. A friend carries a full sized GI model 1911 in a belly band. I use a belly band to carry my XD tactical.

People complain about belly bands flipping and twisting. They are using a belly band that is to large if they are having issues with a belly band getting twisted.

I've got one rig for Colt Trooper that i hunted with. The thing I found with the belt it sits on my left hip, gun on right applies pressure, from it's weight to the left hip and it hurts after a bit and limits walking until I take it off. I have a shoulder holster but sweat , in the area is not a gun's favorite environment. Perhaps the gel type kydex n a shoulder hoster or a rig with a suspender on shoulder on opposing side, which I've never heard of, would be better. Most of the Fedows I know like the mid back with reseve pistol and pancake on hip but I haven't tried a pancake as I don't often carry except to hunt.
