Looking for a new holster for your favorite concealed carry handgun?
Well Remora Holsters has quite an American made selection for you.
I tested out two Remora Holsters and here is how they performed.
I received an email from the good folks at Remora Holsters inquiring if I would like to do a review. After sending back an email about some of my favorite carry handguns and concealment options, I received a package in the mail. At first look I was quite impressed by the workmanship of these impressive looking holsters. Let’s take a thorough look at what both holsters are all about and how well they actually work.
When looking at the Remora Holsters line up on their website I noticed the “Inside The Waistband GEN II MICRO/PLUS MAG” holster. When I noted my handgun choice for the review would be a Kahr PM9 I was sent a right handed size 3B version.
Most inside the waistband holsters have a solidly affixed belt clip. Well the steel spring belt clip is actually removable due to the heavy duty snap button. That certainly makes an easy on and easy off when putting on or removing the holster which is really brilliant in my personal opinion.
The heavy duty stitching and the soft overall construction allows for comfortable carry instead of using hard Kydex material holsters. Those certainly like to bite you after a long day of carrying.
The pistol and a loaded spare magazine fit like a glove inside of this low profile IWB holster.
Note the body side of this holster. Notice there are no sharp areas to pinch and poke the user and the handgun is well secured and the trigger guard is especially covered. The fit is just tight enough to keep everything in place but not too tight to impede drawing the pistol or the spare magazine.
So how well does it perform? Well I do really like the soft construction that allows for no sharp or hard areas to come in contact with the body as I previously stated. The detachable belt clip is an absolute game changer when putting on the holster and removing it. The snug but not too tight fit holds both handgun and extra magazine securely in place. This small low profile holster disappears into my slimmer frame under just a plain t-shirt. Make sure you wear it as you would with any inside the waistband holster in a pair of pants or shorts with a little extra waist room and a good belt for proper concealment and comfort. This truly is the best “grab and go” holster I have come across for my small size 9mm pistol. Well done Remora Holsters!
What is the next holster reviewed all about? It’s time to take a look at this handy little pocket pistol holster.
The second Remora Holster tested is a pocket holster with a unique almost “sticky” outer texture. It is marked as “INSIDE THE WAISTBAND NON SLIP / S.S.R.H. Size 2R”. This holster not only fits the Ruger LCP .380 ACP caliber pistol but also the Kahr PM9 pistol in testing.
Notice how the now ever popular small Ruger LCP pistol fits snugly and securely into this pocket holster. Not only is the pistol protected from damage and imprinting through your pocket material but your pants are now protected from gun oil and grease.
This is a body side view of the holster containing the little Ruger pistol. Note the almost “sticky” finish that helps keep the holster in place in your pocket when you draw your handgun.
A close up shows the great American workmanship of this great little holster. Impressive!
When wearing this holster tucked in your front pocket of your regular fit jeans, a pair of work pants, dress pants or my favorite BDU’s, this holster stays put well due to that interesting “tacky” outer layer. The small size allows for no printing through the pants and keeps the trigger guard, magazine release and everything else covered and protected from pocket lint and damage. Slip your favorite small handgun in this tough built pocket holster and be on your way. No one will have any idea you are packing your favorite little pistol other than you.
In summary of the testing I found both holsters to be top notch in both construction and in actual use. If you are looking for an all business holster that is made right here in the good ole USA check out Remora Holsters. Tell them “The Classic Woodsman” sent ya’!
