Clinger Holsters Review [VIDEO]
A while back I had a Clinger Holster sent out to me to do a review on. This particular one is an IWB (inside the waste band) Kydex holster, with a single-wide, polymer clip. They do have some other models, as well, that you may want to check out, including a model that doesn't require a clip to stay in place, called the Comfort Cling.
These guys produce great, all Kydek inside the waist band (IWB, and OWB for outside the waste band) holsters for a ton of different guns. They have a few different models depending on how many belt clips you want.
For example, they have their IWB No Print Wonder that is a two clip, hybridesque design (in that it uses a leather tab) that is fully adjustable for cant and ride height:
And of course, they have the model that they sent me, which is the Stingray. I wear it in the appendix position (if you're a clock and right handed, appendix would be somewhere between 12 and 2 o'clock on your body).
I found the Kydex thickness to be great and formed really well with very good retention on my leather belt. The holster’s clips are toward the top which seems to make the holster feel more secure as well.
The holster is very streamlined, so it doesn't add any unnecessary bulk. It's made in the USA with a lifetime warranty, which is something more companies are doing these days.
Customer service from Clinger Holsters was fantastic, and an easy to navigate web page like theirs is always a plus. Here is my review video:
Perhaps the best part of their holsters is the incredibly low price tag for such quality product. The Stingray holster is only $39.99 while the No Print Wonder is, as of this writing, $59.99. Additionally, the Comfort Cling holster is only a whopping $19.99.
The holster I reviewed is an older version of the Stingray, and it has gotten better. For more information on Clinger Holsters, you can visit their website by clicking this link.

I love the reviews on gear and would love to hear your opinions on Alien Gear Holsters
Thank you for the question. I’m actually in the middle of an Alien Gear Holster review right now to be published hopefully in the coming months. As a general rule of thumb, just as long as the trigger is protected and the holster stays in place and does its job right, it’s a good holster. Alien Gear holsters certainly do this well for a majority of those who try them out. Hope this answers your question and make sure you stay tuned for when my review gets published. With SHOT Show right around the corner, there’s no exact date for that review yet, though.
I have the Stingray myself. Really like it – comfortable with good retention. Also, one of the few that’s readily available for my Taurus PT111.
