Product Description

Introducing the Brave Response Holster. This is our answer to everything that gets under our skin about concealed Carry these days. If you have the obligatory box of holsters and nothing really satisfies, this is for you.

  • It doesn’t have to be hooked or clipped to your belt, boot, or anything. The built-in waistband goes around your torso like a belt
  • As a waist band holster it can be as shallow or as deep of concealment as you want or as your pants allow
  • Its a one size fits all holster meaning that you only need to buy one and it will work for ALL your semi-automatic handguns
  • It holds up to 3 spare magazines along with the gun!!! (Or two spare magazines and a flashlight…)
  • It takes less time to put on and it conceals better without printing than any holster on the market
  • It fits any waist from 20 to 54 inches
  • The Brave Response Holster is made from heavy duty “SharkSkin” breatheable canvas and is lined with cotton poly next to the skin. Going Commando? This will still be comfortable and breatheable
  • The entire holster is machine washable
  • The holster has a built in forward cant for a smooth, fast, tactical draw
  • The magazine pouches feature an elastic that secures your magazine/flashlight tight so it doesn't just sit loosely
  • Fully tuckable. Tuck in your shirt without worrying about printing or showing any belt clips or the like. Completely and 100% concealable underneath a fully tucked in shirt.

It Fits ALL Semi-Automatic handguns and most smaller revolvers;

That include ALL Semi-Automatic handguns from Glock, Smith and Wesson, Springfield, Sig Sauer, Browning, Desert Eagle, Kahr, Beretta, Ruger, Walther, FN-Herstal, Colt, Kimber, Heckler and Koch (H&K), C-Z, Steyr, Taurus, and 1911 style handguns. If you don't see your gun manufacturer listed here, but it is a semi-automatic it WILL FIT.

Handgun Accessories;

  • The holster does NOT accommodate any firearms with trigger guard or tac rail mounted lights or lasers.

ALL YOUR GUNSThe Brave Response Holster’s patent pending pocket design has been carefully developed and tested to be able to accommodate all semi automatic handguns. So whether you are a Sig or a Glock or a Springfield or a Smith and Wesson, or any brand of 1911 or any of the other brands of handgun out there… (seriously, we took it to cabelas, and Scheels and we made sure we put EVERY SINGLE semi auto in it before we did anything else) Your handgun will fit perfectly in this holster. Our founders carry the Glock 27 double stack, Glock 42 single stack, Kimber 1911, Walther P99, FNX Tactical 45, SIG P226 Blackwater Edition, and H&K P30 all interchangeably in the same holster. We have found many Revolvers to be able to fit as well, (however, we have found that the large frame revolvers like the K frames and the Pythons do not fit) we will be developing a more extensive list of revolvers that do and don’t fit here in the coming months.
ALL YOUR UNIFORMSThe Brave Response Holster is self contained and you will find it is comfortably worn with gym shorts, jeans, slacks, a kilt, whatever…. The founder wears just his holster and skivvies in his waders fly fishing in the river. It is truly here to cater to your specific brand of crazy as it does his.
ALL THE TIMENO KYDEX, your body flexes and bends and sweats and moves. Kydex does not. Leather Does not. CCW holsters are supposed to be comfortable. How is this even possible with Kydex and leather? The answer is, it’s not… Kydex and leather are for OWB holsters. The Brave Response Holster is designed to fit close to the body and leave as little an impression as possible. We built this holster to provide a comfort barrier between you and the gun, while making sure not to add bulk. Our beta testers have been carrying full size handguns and extra mags with no printing and maximal comfort so it can be worn while out and about or in and relaxing. We really think you will be surprised at how it feels as it is our goal to encourage law abiding citizens to carry more often as we never know when the wolf will be at the door.
TOUGHNESSTough but tender, The Brave Response Holster has been designed using the highest quality “Sharkskin” Canvas at its core for longevity, breatheability, comfort, and sturdiness. We use the highest quality “No Snag” Industrial Velcro that ensures you are not ruining your clothes but that the holster is securely held around your waist. The elastic waistband has been chosen to further the lightweight feel of the holster but with the strength to last you.
VERSATILITYThe Brave Response Holster ships with an elastic waistband capable of fitting comfortably and securely on anyone with a 20″ – 55″ waist. This can be tucked if the holster is to be regularly worn by more than one person or the extra belt material can be removed and the edge of the belt singed with a lighter or match. The Brave Response Holster comes with removable retention strap. If you like retention – use it, if not- remove it. The Brave Response Holster is capable of carrying up to 3 magazines in addition to the one in the gun itself can also use any mag pocket for most small flashlights and pocket knives Because the Brave Response Holster can carry such a wide variety of handguns, you can get rid of the box of holsters and have one holster that is right for you and all your handguns.
BREATHABLENO LEATHER, Leather does not breathe now, it didn’t breathe when it was skin. Skin is designed for keeping liquids and other stuff inside the body. Our holster is designed to breathe. That way you can breathe, your gun can breathe, everyone can breathe, and that makes life comfortable. No more taking off your sopping wet leather and metal and hard plastic holster. You’ll find this holster keeps you much cooler as a result of less weight, less bulk and the most durable breatheable fabrics on the planet.
FLUIDITY OF TRAININGWe are a defensive training company first and foremost. Our students include private citizens, Military, law enforcement, and private armed security forces. This holster was built to enable you to protect your life. In a defensive situation you will lose the ability to perform fine motor skills so building a holster that is safe and comfortable for the 99.9999% of the time that you carry and effective and ready for that 1 in 300,000 chance of being a victim of violent crime. The patent pending pocket on the holster positions your firearm in a forward cant position to replicate your outside the waistband training holster that you wear to the range. This will aid you in a defensive situation as most of our students have never drawn from concealed until they are on the range with us. The Brave Response Holster will imitate the feel of your OWB training holster and enable you to have a faster response to an imminent threat. The forward cant also facilitates a clean and smooth draw with no hang ups or snags. Retention is removable at your discretion. The retention has been designed to instantly break away as you slide into shooters grip before the draw. The retention is hidden behind the gun in the perfect place for you to disengage it, but will maximize your ability to retain the weapon on your hip.

I got my holster today and wore it while riding my motorcycle. I wore it up a little higher and it did not bind or dig into my side. I have owned many holsters in the past and this one is by far the best. I almost forget it is even there. Thank you very much! – James in Louisville KY

I ordered the brave response holster. Best everyday holster on the market. Works with any clothes. Love it.  – Stuart in Highland UT

I have recently received my new Brave Holster. I must say this holster is unique, I like how a person can carry extra magazines and different size caliber firearms without switching to a different holster. This Concealed Carry Holster is the perfect holster for someone like me who works in high crime areas or someone who likes to hunt. With this holster, I feel like I'm prepare to protect my family in any environment. I highly recommend Brave holsters to be your choice for concealed carry holsters. -Patrick in Chicago (Current law enforcement and Firearm Instructor)

I love the holster. Very light weight, holds all three of my pistols of which are three different molds. I love that it doesn't pull on my paints or shorts even wearing basketball shorts. Best holster I have ever owned.  – Bryan in Leavenworth KS

I bought two of your holsters. I'm very satisfied. They are very comfortable and the fit is good. Your product is awesome and I hope to be doing business with you again in the future.  – Fred in Arlington Hts IL

Holster is great. Solves some issues for carrying during summer when waistband carry is not always practical. Lightweight, but sturdy and secure. Fits snugly and subtly against the body. Great holster.  – Shelli in Valley Center KS

As an NRA and Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor I have a lot of holsters to show the class. When I showed your holster the interest was overwhelming. They all wanted to look at it and touch and feel it. They liked the idea of it being independent of your pants or belt. You can adjust it for high or low carry. Deep or shallow. Plus the mag holders right by the firearm was a plus. You can also use it for a mini compact all the way up to the 1911. I personally have used it for the last 5 days and am also impressed with it. It stays where you put it, is very stable and can be adjusted very easily. All in all on a scale of 1-10 I would give it a strong 9. Thanks for making an innovative product for now and the future.  – Gerald in Litchfield IL (Firearm Instructor)

I purchased my new holster because I was looking for something more comfortable for concealed carry. It is VERY comfortable! Also, it works great for all of my handguns and pistols. I have 2 revolvers and 2 semi autos.My Ruger KP95 is a large framed handgun and it carries comfortably. My .357 Magnus also carries quite comfortable with this holster. I basically replaced ALL my other holsters with this one. Thank you for a great design and the amazing comfort. I carry daily and was not always comfortable doing so until I got this holster.  – John in Tooele UT

I love my new holster. I hated to carry because it always drags my pants down. This solves that problem and provides space for spare clips. I highly recommend. – Glenn in Louisville KY

Like a lot of guys I've been in the hunt for the best conceal carry holster. The “best” is somewhat subjective, but let it suffice to say, if your holster isn't comfortable or doesn't conceal your weapon well, you're probably not going to be carrying your weapon. That means you're likely to be unprepared when the need arises. I've heard it said that your holster shouldn't be comfortable, it should be comforting. After wearing the new holster, I can say with conviction, “Nonsense”. My new holster allows me to carry my Glock 23 with three full magazines while wearing just about any type of clothing. It's so comfortable and concealable, I wear it everywhere I go. That's the ultimate fulfillment of the comfortable AND concealable criteria. Well done! – Ken in Tigard OR

This holster is the most comfortable I've ever worn. After 28 years of law enforcement I can't believe I find this holster now. I will continue caring my weapon. -Gerald in Indian Land SC

Best off duty/on duty holster I have ever owned. Soft, adjustable, concealable. THANKS! – Jim in Louisville KY

Thanks for shipping the holster so quickly! I shortened it just a little and it fits just right. It rides on the hip and follows the body without anything showing. Thanks again for such a high quality item! – Wilbur in Perkinston MS

I have tried many concealed carry holsters over the years. The problems has been different holsters for different dress/seasons. The brave response holster is quite comfortable. I have worn it with shorts, jeans, slacks with and without a coat. It fits my main carry piece and the forward cant is great. This will be my main holster. – Jim in Florissant CO

Got my holster and have put all my other holsters in the bottom dresser draw. Without a doubt the most comfortable concealed holster I have ever worn. Love the fact that you can carry two mags and a flashlight, although when carrying an extended mag it can poke you in the side a little; but still can't be beat. For those other big guys worried that it might not fit, it has ample room in the belt to fit us; I'm 6'3″ and 290lbs. You have a winner as far as I'm concerned!!!!!!!! – David in Orange VA

I just received my holster and am getting used to it.. so far it is FANTASTIC.. I prefer inside the waistband and i have to say it is SO comfortable!!! I've set it up with 1 magazine, 1 flashlight and 1 folding knife. its going to take some practice drawing since I'm not used to the snap but I am liking it!! Thank you. – Robert in Madison SD

Normally I don't write a review for a product I received online but I have to admit this is one of the best buys, functionally, monetarily and comfortably I have ever made. I had bought some of the traditional IWB holsters for the guns I owned but was limited by the pants I could wear because the gun belt was too large for several of my dress pants and slacks. With this holster its not even a secondary thought on what to wear or how to dress for the day. It had gotten to point ( I know how bad this sounds) that I would opt out of carrying my weapon because of the hassle of finding something to fit my holster rather than the holster fitting my needs. The design is well made and thought out to allow unrestricted carry and positioning of any gun I own. Well done and the one time cost to carry all of my guns is unbelievable. Highly recommended. – Lynn in Wichita KS

We tried them on and for the first time ever, I have a holster I can wear with my preferred clothing! We have purchased no less than 6 different styles if holsters trying to find one that works for me. I even have 2 very expensive leather purses specifically designed to carry and a lap bag also specifically designed for carry….none of which I have been able to feel secure using. I am a retired Marine and I am very happy with this purchase. I feel almost as safe as I did when in uniform. Oohrah! – Karen in Pensacola FL

    I’ve had this holster for a little over a week now, and it has been comfortable to carry in the South Texas heat. I’ve carried everything from small pistols like the Sig P230, up to the FN FiveSeven without issue. The snap release tab could be a bit longer as I did have some difficulty reaching it with full sized guns. I admit, I was skeptical at first, I thought the holster would end the day sliding down inside my pants, or that the fabric would get hot, but neither happened! Having the mag holders on the other side would be a plus, maybe make the holster slide on the waistband and have modular mag pouches? Over all a good holster.

  2. (verified owner):

    I have been using my new Brave Response holster for about 10 days now. I am a retired Police officer and this is by far the most comfortable holster I have owned and it works well with all of my handguns .40,.45,
    9mm, and 357 magnum.

  3. (verified owner):

    Love this holster very comfortable I switch out between my Taurus 9MM and the Bersa 380 both fit very nicely and snug and the holster feels good against my skin, very little printing if any, highly recommend this holster to all who want to carry with minimal print factor, get you one guys and gals you’ll be glad you did……

    My holster came in the mail on Saturday. My wife & I ride bicycles most evenings, and I usually try to get a few miles in at lunch. I was looking for something to wear under a t-shirt and inside bike shorts. This is it! I’ve carried my SR9C and my wife’s LC9/Crimson Trace so far and they both fit well. The Brave Response holster hasn’t moved while riding and is quite comfortable. Scott’s suggestion for movable mag holders is worth considering. Either way, this holster is a winner.

  5. (verified owner):

    Just tried my new holster and am not happy. Tried my RIA 1911 commander size and my Colt 1911 full size and found I could not get the snaps to snap together as they are too short, whether weapon was cocked or not. Saw somebody else had an issue with the straps. Holster is not cheap, pricewise, and this problem should have been engineered out before production. Will be returning.

  6. (verified owner):

    I was going to return my holster because I thought the straps were too short to snap together on my 1911’s, but found that the one strap is held by Velcro and is adjustable for length. Assumed incorrectly that it was sewn in like the short strap. I will be keeping my holster now and apologize for not catching this before writing a prior review. Versatility seems to be the hallmark of this holster.

  7. (verified owner):

    Received my holster two days ago. I did not have a chance to fit it to my weapon yesterday, but did today . It took all of 10 min. To fit my Walter PP in it. I wore it about eight hours so far it’s extremely comfortable with little or no printing. I wore while driving my truck ,and my wife’s car, We went shopping and then to a restaurant with friends . At this time I would happily recommend it to my friends. Going to try my para LDA 14 next.

  8. :

    I am a woman who has been searching for a comfortable concealed holster for sometime. All that I have tried have been too bulky and not very “concealing” with my Sig 9mm on my hip. This holster has fit that profile. It is so comfortable, there were times I forgot I had it on. As a woman, I don’t need anything more added to my hips! It is not “hot” to wear, nor does it feel sticky on the skin. Great product. I highly recommend this for the ladies.

  9. (verified owner):

    Got my holster and took off on a nine day trip wearing it for about 12 hours/day. This is easily the most comfortable IWB holster I’ve used. It is very secure on the body, conceals well with little printing and retains my weapon (Kimber stainless in .45) well. Excellent product.

  10. (verified owner):

    Have been using this holster since buying this October. Very, very comfortable and use it
    exclusively except when temps are real warm, I go to a pocket holster setup due to garment restrictions, just don’t care for IWB wear. Printing is about non-existent with this setup. It will be a favorite holster for anyone wanting a comfortable, inconspicuous setup. Recommendations: (agree with Scott) the fixed snap tab could be at least 1/4″ longer and stiffened even more(above and below snap) as I occasionally have trouble finding the tab and my thumb slides right over the top of it, forcing me to dig my thumb into the gap to unsnap using my Kimber Pro-carry 1911 in condition one. Rapid deployment is definitely hindered due to this, in my opinion. I also found that if a spare mag is carried in the first(most forward) holder, when crouching, the mag is pushed up pretty far out of the holder by your leg, so I utilize the second holder and the one most rearward as I also noticed the possibility that carrying a mag in the holder right behind the gun, may inhibit clean acquisition of the gun grip when attempting to unholster. My perceptions, anyway. Still, in all, a great unit and highly recommend.

  11. :

    Received my holster today. It is exactly as advertised. Very light and comfortable. It does fit a variety of weapons. I will add to this review after I have used it for a month.

  12. (verified owner):

    Holster is comfortable and works well with my xd40 but as far as carrying extra mags it don’t work. I have bent over while wearing it and had my spare mag fall out on the ground.

  13. (verified owner):

    I have been wearing my Brave-Response-Holster for a month now, and I want to say that for once this is a case of “truth in advertising”! The comfort level of the holster is the part that I am happiest with, the fact that it carries your pistol in a deep concealment position, just adds to the value of this purchase. I have carried a pistol for work most of my adult life, and carrying concealed with an uncomfortable holster was just part of the equation. Not to mention that you needed a different holster for each model of pistol that you found yourself being tasked with carrying. I am happy to say that I have been able to carry comfortably with several different models and barrel lengths. I am confident that I will be able to carry with comfort, any pistol in my CCW rotation. I never thought I would be able to say that…
    Some reviewers have said that they could not draw their pistol with the speed that they wanted. This is “not” a speed draw holster, it is a “deep concealment” holster, and one that is also very comfortable. If it is speed that you are looking for, then you need an outside of your waistband holster to facilitate that. This holster is for those who want to be able to Concealed Carry with a comfortable rig, that allows you to carry spare mags or a flash light, or both even, and not have to worry about having your gun print, pull your pants down or have you constantly readjusting yourself trying to move your gun into less painful position. I know because I have lived with all of those difficulties myself.
    I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to being able to carry in much more concealed comfort into the future. If you are on the fence about making this purchase, just do it, you will not be sorry. And your sore body will thank you also!

  14. (verified owner):

    Perfect holster for those of us that typically wear shorts and t-shirt most of the time. I south Florida I rarely wear a belt and pants. This holster is comfortable, efficient, and effective. Best holster on the market for most any handgun out there. At times I carry my full size Glock 19 and have no problems concealing. Great job.

  15. (verified owner):

    I have been using it for a couple of days so far and it is very comfortable. I like the fact that I can raise it when using restroom, so doesn’t fall on the ground in plain sight of others or have to take off and place somewhere in the stall. I have tried it with several of my guns and it works, really wish it would work for my 3″barreled Ruger GP100 but alas it doesn’t. However, I want to let you know that it does work with my Bersa 380 Firestorm even with it’s LaserLyte in front of the trigger guard mounted laser. I recommend this to others to try.

  16. (verified owner):

    Not worth $70

  17. (verified owner):

    Received the holster very quick and tried it immediately, I believe this is the best and most comfortable holster I have owned
    and I have many others. I would recommend this holster for someone who truly wants to conceal carry. I carry my Sig P238 and my
    Glock 45cal.

  18. (verified owner):

    Between the Military and my years in Law Enforcement I have carried a concealed firearm most of my life and have tried just about any/all holsters that have ever been made for that proposes. I am an OWB paddle holster diehard fan and have always had the same old problems when wearing shorts or just a T-shirt, untill now. First of all my Brave Response Holster arrived fast and I could tell right off that it is a quality item. I have used it with shorts, jogging paints, a dress suit, and under a T-shirt. It is comfortable, easy to put on, holds any of my handguns securely, and makes it easy to draw as well. I dont know how I ever got along with out it. Every One with a CCW needs one of these holsters no matter what your favorite way is to carry your gun. From my 3″ 1911 to my FNX Tactical, the Brave Response Holster insurers that i am never with protection, no matter what I am wearing……A MUST HAVE…..

  19. (verified owner):

    If I’d tried it before buying, I probably would have passed it up. It prints about 70% of the time with floppy shirts w/a glock 27 and 2 mags. Front 2 mag holders let mags rise up and have to be pushed back down. Rear holder does better. I usually try to avoid thumb-break straps, tho this one works OK so far. Putting it on works best with the ladies easy-on bra method—do the wraparound in front then rotate the business part around to the desired position. Re-holstering almost requires taking it off to snap the thumb-break over the gun. I will use it with my bib overalls and an over-shirt and go with my Uncle Mikes on a belt for OWB carry.

  20. :

    i switched to IWB carry early last year,trying different holsters including the new 3.0 holster from a certain popular company, which as a kydex holster it works well with my jeans, but for christmas i receved the Brave Response Holster,and immediately tried it on with my every day carry sidearm, its amazing, i love how my sidearm fits, how comfortable it is, i havent yet tried carrying extra mags or anything in the 3 pouches yet but i plan too. I fight train at home everyday and the Brave Response works great under gym clothes,elastic waist bands, sweatpants etc..all work great with this holster. I have defiantly recommended it to many of my CCL friends and even friends in local law enforcement.this is a simple idea but so versatile its unreal.I would recommend this to anyone thinking about buying a great quality concealed holster.and so far the weight of different calibers and sizes hasnt seemed to be any issue with comfort!!!! i carry on my riding mower and yard work and NEVER any secure issues..my advise ..I great Investment!!!

  21. (verified owner):

    I received the holster and immediately put it to work. Tractor work. On and off the tractor for several hours. Hand digging, front end loading and backhoe work. You don’t realize how much you contort as you spin around the seat and maneuver past the hydraulic controls getting on and off the tractor. In all that time I never felt the holster move… in fact I almost forgot I had it on.

    The next day was regular office work during the day. Again, no slipping or discomfort. Up and down to the printer and talking to customers, in and out of the car and then recording a band after hours. That means a lot of moving microphones… especially around the drum set. I even had to crawl around under a piano. I’ll definitely get a spare holster. I wouldn’t want to be without it.

  22. (verified owner):

    Just got the holster.slipped my fully loaded m&p 40 into it.put it on and was amazed. Comfortable and held it snug.no flopping around.great holster impressed i am.

  23. :

    The most comfortable holster I own. I got it and tried it with my Glock 21, the biggest pistol I own, and it was able to put it where it didn’t poke me when I sat or drove, yet was also where I wanted it to be in case I needed to use it. I have also used it with my FNX45, like in your photos, with the extra mags and it was fine. Reholstering is not an issue if you’re talking about needing to use a firearm. Yes, it’s a bit of a pain when practicing the draw at the range, reholstering, that is. And yes it takes additional time to reach across one’s body to get a spare mag. Doesn’t bother me and if it does I will simply wear the mags the way I always wore them prior, on my belt weak side. My point is that this holster, like a compression shirt, makes you and your weapon into a tight unit and the difference in not having that weight on one’s belt is a big difference and I like it. Worth the money. I might by another one to keep just in case.

    Received Holster today and haven’t taken it off since it came. Very comfortable, very little printing and have already been to town with scrub pants on and went back out w/ shorts. No one ever noticed a thing. Glock 23 and extra mag almost forgot I was wearing. Love it so far. Will update as time goes by. By the way, I am 6’1″ and about 265 lbs. never been this confident carrying concealed.

    Most comfortable holster I’ve owned. The thing I like the most about it is it’s independent from your pants or shorts. I’ve owned dozens of other IWB and OWB holsters that attach to your pants or belt and they were constantly sagging my pants down unless I tightened my belt to the point of cutting my circulation off. The material is very comfortable against bare skin and holds my pistol very close to my body to eliminate printing. It’s also very well made with good materials.

    Fantastic holster. I have been through hundreds of dollars worth of holsters and have resulted to carrying owb because no iwb holster was comfortable to me. Enter the Brave Response Holster. I now carry everyday iwb. I wear shorts to work with no belt and can carry. Jeans, slacks, tucked in shirt, untucked shirt. Doesn’t matter. Not only is it the most comfortable holster I’ve worn but it is very cool in the summer. I’m from Mississippi so hundred degree days with this against my body have not deterred me from carrying. Not to mention it allows you to carry any handgun you want! Five stars!

    I tried this holster for a while as it came but found that since the Velcor was just as wide as the belt that the corners dug in and pinched. Yep I am a fat boy. Also since the belt is soft it tended to fold over at my gut and the firearm was wobbly on the belt. And seriously I don’t know anyone that carries magazines on the same side as the firearm

    I have since modified the holster by removing the belt strap completely and adding 3 belt loops to the outside of the holster (belt loops are from old jeans). I wear a gun belt through these three loops with the buckle around the back left of my waist. Yes the belt goes on the outside of the holster and does a remarkable job of stabilizing the fire arm – no holder strap needed. The firearm sits very tight to my body and does not print at all, ever. It still draws nice and smooth and re-holstering is no more difficult than with the stock holster.

    The next thing I did was to install a sweat shield above the holster on the back to prevent sweat from getting on the firearm grip and to prevent the grip from digging into my side when I am not wearing a T-shirt.

    I wish I could include a picture as these mods, for me take this holster from Average to Perfect. (Manufacturer – There is a tip here)

    SO I thought it was all hype and that it couldn’t possible be as good as all the reviews. I was 100% wrong. This is the most comfortable holster for all day deep concealment I’ve ever worn. Absolutely works with shorts, pants, dress pants, T-Shirts, sweats, gym shorts, you name it. I’ll not be without mine ever again. Thank you for such an excellent design Brave Response! (NEXT, detachable mag holders to velcro in place on the other side of the strap like the retainer snap on the holster itself 😉

I am a fairly large man, 5′ 10″, 270 lbs and rarely wear belted pants, preferring suspenders, and this is perfect for me. It absolutely does not imprint with anything I wear. My wife is good at picking out imprinted guns on people and I wore it all day without telling her I had it on and she didn’t notice it, even after I showed her the gun, a full size S&W 9mm. I also wanted to carry an example of my engraving work to show folks but decided to keep this one hidden and carry a smaller one for show-and-tell. The holster is so comfortable that I actually forgot I had it on and am considering purchasing one for my police officer son.

    I’ve had this holster for a couple of months now and it works OK, but I have some issues with it. I’m a heavy guy, 5’8, 245, and I wear my pants belted tight. I’ve tried several different weapons in it: Kahr .45, S&W model 59, Walther PPQ. The problems I have encountered are, 1) the weapon pushes into my side so far that it is difficult to get a solid grip on it for a good draw and I tend to pinch my side against the weapon when drawing. 2) the Kahr, although small, has sharp edges on the grip and rear sights that quickly become uncomfortable against my skin, the Model 59 is even worse. The PPQ is more rounded and allows for a great deal more comfort. 3) It has been a challenge to find a position where the weapon is easy to get to but doesn’t ride directly on my hip bone, which also becomes uncomfortable quickly. 4) when I get it in a position where the weapon is high enough to grip, the velcro belt tends to ride up above the top of my pants in the front making it visible. I have tried wearing a T-shirt under it and that helps some. On the positive side, none of the weapons imprinted, it makes restroom breaks in public restrooms much more secure than a holster attached to pants or belt and it holds the weapon securely even without the retaining strap. For someone of my build, a panel that extended up behind the weapon, between it and and my body, would make the rig much easier to draw from and keep the edges of the grip and slide from digging into my flesh. I have had some progress in finding positioning that will keep it from grinding on my hip bone and I think this problem can be overcome. Overall, not a holster that I hate, but not what I was hoping for,

    I am an unshapely person with virtually no waist.

    This holster FITS me and my firearm!

    Having its own integrated belt design, and NOT being attached to my pants belt, is a mind soothing comfort as I have a concern about my pants falling off! It works for me work nicely just as a strap on, non-concealed holster. A very nice two-for!

    The ordering process was outstanding and USA Firearms kept me updated through the process very nicely all the way to delivery. I value good customer contact (that you don’t have to initiate!)

    This holster is the one I have been searching for, for quite some time. I am a very new owner of the holster and have not had much experience with it for a long term comfort and use perspective, but, it snugly and securely fit my firearm (which has not been the case over and over) and should fit most any other too! I am so impressed and pleased with the results so far, I had to put in an early, “THANKS”.

    The holster is great for wearing gym clothes
    But when you work at a place that don’t allow weapons inside. Taking it out and putting it back in holster can be tricking

    That’s why I wear alien holster for work clothes and this for gym or leisure clothes wear I don’t have to re-holster

    If they can figure out a way to re-holster without having to undue your pants then I would wear it all the time
    Then it would get a 5

    So far I’m pleased with this holster.

    One test I performed I strapped on holstered with my Glock 36 outside my running shorts to see how secure and comfortable the holster would be relying on the support of the rig only while performing my high metabolic finisher workout.

    Impressive!! The holster did “jiggle” a little bit. However considering it’s on an elastic band and I was going all out this is truly impressive. Plus it was absolutely comfortable. Once movement ceased I couldn’t even tell I had it on.

    Tested it behind the waistband at 2 and 4 o’clock positions. Totally comfortable and secure.

    Tested it higher up around the torso. I feel that wearing a t-shirt is imperative to avoid band slipping lower and avoid “rub rash” with movement. Agian very comfortable and secure.

    My wife wore hers to work holstered with her S&W J Frame. She remarked that it was totally comfortable even in a sitting position.

    I have noticed at least one review criticizing mag pouches on strong side. Even in the 4 o’clock position “for me” this posed no problem whatsoever.

    Very pleased, I highly recommend adding this holster to your personal protection gear.

    I’ve only worn this holster for one day, so if things change, I’ll come back to update. Just like any new holster it will take some practice to improve draw speed. So far, this is the best carry option I’ve tried. I can comfortably carry my Sig Sauer SP2022 and extra magazine without printing or comfort issues. Comfort and convenience means it’s more likely to carry. Even if my draw is slower, it’s still with me which is better than making excuses to not carry because it drags my pants or digs into my side like you might find in other options. I have had problems with other holster options such as inside waistline holster digging into my side or pocket holster which collects lint and debris and dries out the barrel. On top of that, any holster that relies on being held in or on the pants has the distinct feature of dragging the pants down and clunking when in a public restroom. Not to mention the digging in your side if you aren’t in perfect shape.

    I’d prefer it worn above the belt line but this makes drawing with one hand a near impossibility with no support strap below. I was supper excited to get mine in the mail thinking all my holster problems are solved just to find that they weren’t.
    It’s plenty comfortable but prints nearly as bad as my current holster and my gun snags making it much harder to draw out of this one. I like that you can carry extra mags.
    Just a little disappointed.

It remains totally concealed at all times and lets me have two seven round extended mags, a handcuff key and a small tactical flashlight ! You can’t beat that with a stick! I also wear the Brave Response Holster while wearing jeans and T-Shirt with complete confidence that my weapon will be right where I want it.

    I’m fairly new to concealed carry but have already tried 3 different IWB holsters. So far this is the most comfortable holster I have and is now my go-to option. I have been trying different positions to see what works best for me and wanted to share my experiences to get some feedback.

    1) I’ve carried appendix at about the 1:00 position since this seemed to provide me with the least amount of print (virtually none which was great!) and allowed for a quick draw. The main problem here is that I found the extra mags got pushed up just from normal activity like sitting and standing. I’ve even had them fall out a couple of times, once at a Home Depot when I needed to check out something on a low shelf. Since I did experience this I’ve been very aware when I continued to carry it this position with the same outcome, and it didn’t matter which pouch I had the mag in, all 3 moved up. Because of this I felt I needed to check them often to push them back down which could indicate that I am carrying. I’ve shifted back to about the 3:00 position which seems to help and may move it back a bit further as I continue to experiment but my concern here is the mags may be less accessible, especially the one toward the back Being an avid listener to the podcast I agree with their thoughts about carrying as much ammo as possible so I may be limited but I’m still able to carry many more rounds than I could have unless I have a separate mag holder like I would with any other holster.

    2) I like to keep the band under the waistline of my pants and find that over time it slides up but, again, this has been at the 1:00 or 2:00 position. I’m hoping this won’t happen as I move it to the 3:00-5:00 positions as I fine-tune my carry because when this happens I find the I start to print. This isn’t much of an issue now that it’s cooler and I’m wearing long-sleeve shirts but I’m waiting to see what happens when it’s warmer and I start to wear polos and t-shirts.

    As I stated before, this is my go-to option and I believe with a little more experimentation I’ll get it fine-tuned just nicely! Great job guys and any input you can provide concerning the mags sliding up is greatly appreciated!

    :

    I’ve had the holster for two weeks. I like the concept and basic design, but the holster still seems like a prototype. It doesn’t fit all of my guns well. The smaller ones yes, but the full-sized pistols (XDM, 1911,etc.) not so much. A few things I don’t like: the elastic band is too narrow and the velcro should be a continuous strip. It just doesn’t feel very secure with a heavy gun. One thing I hate is the snap. It’s location is awkward and the exposed metal of the snap sits directly on the firearm. I already see developing wear marks. However, I’m probably going to keep the holster and will tweak it a bit myself.

    I received my holster a couple days ago. I am a small framed women, 5′ 2″ & about 110 lbs. I do have my ccw. I’m from Wisconsin. We own a sports shop, and both my husband & I have an FFL. Now I’ve been able to buy many different holsters. Right now I carry a Beretta 32 Tomcat semiautomatic. I can no longer rack a hand gun. I am 66. This holster is the BEST I have ever had. After wearing it, while doing laundry (just to get used of the feel), by the time I finished the first load….I forgot I had it on. The comfort is Amazing!! Just some background. My husband was 22+ years military (pilot). After retirement I thought he’d get a laid-back job & we would live happily ever after…he then decides to go into Law Enforcement. So that was about 18 years of shear terror for awhile. In the meantime he wanted me to be self protected. So as he sat in the back of the class (he’s now Chief of Police) as I went through my classroom instruction…it was now onto the firing range (which is not required for Wisconsin) with the instructor, this guy (the instructor) put us all through some rigorous situation. I am right haned..he was having us shoot left handed, I won’t go into all the training but it was well worth it.
    Now the holster I can say without any doubt this money was well spent. I would buy it again if I had to. It’s to bad we don’t have it to sell in our Shop!! But I am sure going to pass along & highly recommend this holster. And I don’t feelike like my gun & other holster is particularly pull my pants off!!
    Any of you smaller women will LOVE this holster. Guys…keep your gals safe & ready for any situation.
    Hope you keep this holster available. I will be calling you about one question. It has to do with the gun , not the holster!! Love…Love…Love it!!!

    Quite frankly, the most comfortable and practical holster I have ever owned!

    Carry a Springfield Armory XDS 3.3 more often than other .45’s and it is perfect! The holster also fits and handles the Kimber compact .45’s quite well also. I sometimes use a Kimber Micro 9 or a DB 9 and they seem just a bit too small for easy draw from this holster. Hoping a little change will be made and perhaps another model for carrying these little guys. The biggest surprise is the Kel-Tek PMR 30 fits beautifully and I can manage (although quite tight) to carry 2 spare magazines, even though the pouches are a very tight fit for the longer cartridge length. That gives me the capacity to have 75 rounds on hand when I am out and about on the farm (I do not load the magazines to the 30-round capacity). With this particular handgun, the total weight including holster is only about 30 ounces………and it still stays put on my beer belly! I would like to see wider magazine pouches to better accommodate the magazines. Why carry 75 rounds??? (1) because I can (2) on a farm one never knows how many objects one can find that might deserve a good plinking!
    Hopefully the manufacturer will come up with a design to accommodate the little J-Frame revolvers at some point.

    Got it in a timely fashion. Actually ordered 2 for the $10 discount on the second. I’ve been carrying a Springfield XD Compact and two 13 round spare mags everyday since they arrived. Even carried 24hrs straight one day. Usually 12-14 hrs is the norm. I have been very happy with the comfort and conceal ability. I’m wearing it as I write this, sitting on a couch and honestly cant feel my XD, mags, or holster at all. I could never wear any of my other IWB holsters without them pulling my trousers down or the gun falling out onto the ground while bending over or getting out of the car. The retention strap is well designed and there is no way that my firearm could fall out or be grabbed. The strap disengages naturally with the wearer’s own draw but is not easily disengaged by anyone else.

    Even in the deep concealed mode below my belt, it performs perfectly. I wear an under shirt beneath it because the velcro can irritate over time when directly against the skin. I wear 2 sizes larger waist trousers to allow for the extra bulk of the 2 spare mags. I also wear an elastic belt when using deep concealment to allow quick access.
    When wearing in the conventional method with top of the pistol and mags above the belt, I can draw very fast.

    Without the spare mags it would not print under normal situations. Of course, printing with a concealed carry is always something that a responsible person should be aware of but this holster prints less than any of my others.

    If it holds up ro daily use, I would have no qualms recommending this holster.

    I have had this for a few months now. It works. I am not finding it comfortable. I keep getting jabbed in the side by the safety on my 709 slim, also the velcro pinches me and as I recall this should not be a problem with this holster. Maybe it is cause I’m a small guy with a bit of a belly. I could not make it any smaller and work. I had to cut it really small to fit me and hold retention. I’m considering modifying it with a piece of Kydex so I can stick it in with a piece of velcro epoxyed to it so it holds and possibly a stitch on the top front. I need something to keep that safety from jabbing me or even the corner of the slide bugs me after a while. If this does not work it will be a waste of money. I do realize that this defeats the purpose of what it is designed for however, I just want it to hold my 709 comfortably.

    I have worn my holster for 2 full days. As i am a female and a bit round in the middle the corners on the straps can poke and pinch when sitting (rounding those edges may fix that for future models). I also tend to wear tightish clothing and have not yet found a regular outfit that it doesn’t print or catch the fabric. If i carry at 2 o’clock then i can’t sit so i carry at 4 o’clock. This means when i move around my top gets caught between the grip and my love handle. My plan is to wear this at work where the uniform is baggy and bland.

    Overall it is quite comfortable, when not getting poked by corners i forgot it was there.

    As a side note my gun snags a bit when drawn, this is due to the slide lock which is basically a hook with just enough space to catch the seam, adjusted for by pulling away from myself when removing from the holster.

    All of the statements in the commercial for this holster are absolutely accurate. I am in using concealed carry holsters for over 10 years and this is the best one I ever owned. One of the things that makes it truly outstanding is the cant to sleeve for the weapon it moves it away from the leg and points the barrel to the rear you do not have to worry about getting your leg all tied up with the barrel of your weapon.

    The only thing that I would recommend is having a version of the holster both left and right hand that will accommodate a weapon with an under the barrel laser like a Veridian Laser. Other than that it is the best holster for concealed carry that I’ve ever owned.

    I have been using my Brave Response Holster for about a week. I love the way it feels and like many of the other reviews, I hardly notice it when I’m wearing it and so far no one else has ‘noticed’ that I’m carrying my pistol. I have a Glock 42 with a green Crimson Trace laser that fits fine in the holster. But, as Ken (Feb 4, 2017) and others have mentioned, when I sit down in meetings, bend over at the store (beer belly) the magazines force themselves up out of the holders…only the first two slots. I have the Glock 42 Extended mags. No matter where I’ve worn the holster on my body, this happens. I did a presentation to a group, standing in a meeting after sitting for a period of time, and when walking back to my chair a mag fell on the floor. Then, the next day I went to someone’s office and when I got home, one of the fully loaded mags was missing. It could have fallen out anywhere before I got into my vehicle. First, I decided to not carry anything in the two front pouches, just carry one mag in the other pouch, but I want to use all three. So, I just finished putting 3/4″ velcro straps over the mags in the two pouches…I’ll see how that works. Maybe for future designs you could put velcro ‘flaps’ over the mag holder pouches.

    I have had my holster for about two weeks and have worn it from the first day I received it. had to find the most comfortable position for me to wear it as I also have two extra clips and a flashlight that I am carrying. I’ve found that the best method for me is to wear it ‘outside’ my pants and above the waistline about an inch or two at about the 2 o-clock position…I can drive, sit while i’m eating and move freely without even noticing that i’m wearing it. Very comfortable. with all the ‘extra’ gear that it can hold, it does get a little ‘heavy’ after a few hours but not so much that it is bothersome and if I needed to, I could remove a couple of the items and continue on wearing it with no discomfort. Overall, a recommendable product for sure.

    I carry a Glock 22 in a 40 SW caliber which is not a small gun and rather difficult to conceal because of the size. I have tried 3 other holsters before and I always felt disappointed for one reason of another, which made me carry my gun only off and on, and not all the time. After I got my first Brave Response Holster, now I have 3 of the same which I keep just for convenience at 3 different locations, I have been wearing my gun every single day. It is so comfortable that I even forget at times that I have a gun on me. This holster is awesome and I never thought that there could be a holster in the market so comfortable and easy to wear.

    This is a very good holster it would be a great holster if the Velcro went all the way around instead of being patched in a couple of different spots. It never ends up fastening good because the Velcro is just short or to far away to make a nice tight fit. I’ll have to have mine modified to get it to fit right. I’ll have some more Velcro sewn on it. Other than that this holster is a home run especially being able to carry a couple of mags without effort of concealment. Buy this holster, more than likely the problem I’m having won’t affect you the way is does me.

    Thru my lifetime(70) years I have owned many different brands of holsters. Some worth keeping and some pure junk. Read the ad on this holster and thought what the hay lets try it. One of the more intelligent things I’ve done. Opened the package ,fitted it to my kal-tec .22 mag and wow this holster truly fit the bill. Sized it to several of my weapons and no matter what it fit perfect. Wish I had this holster while in law enforcement. Buy one you won’t be disappointed.

    I was a bit skeptical with this one when trying to find a decent holster. I had been having issues finding a holster that I liked and that worked well. Turns out this may be the holster that works. For one, it’s the most comfortable one I have used, just have to make sure the strap is lined up all the way around. It’s also held in place surprisingly well, doesn’t slide down, even while I was out for a run it didn’t move. The odd thing to me is, I have a full size gun and an extra magazine and I can’t even tell I’m wearing it most of the time. The only thing, and it’s not a huge thing, that I can think of that is great is the protection of the trigger, it’s not bad, but not great, just ok. I would definitely recommend to anyone that has been looking for a comfortable holster that works.

    OMG- after being a new Ccw permit holder in Cali, I was excited to see and try different holsters. I’ve tried black arch holsters, and cross breeds belly band. By far the Brave response holster is the most comfortable and not overbearing. It conceals well and I look forward to wearing it daily. Very comfortable, and am a very pleased customer. Thank you for making a GREAT product

    I love this holster. It has very little print as advertised. It is very comfortable and seems not to cause an overheating condition when wearing. It comes off dry. Now, just to be saying it truthful, it has been under 70 hear in Ohio since I received it. I haven’t worn any of my many holsters since I received it after 2 weeks. It can also be worn with any type of shorts or any other garments as advertised. I really do think it could be worn while running a marathon in gym shorts. At my age with athletic worn knees I just don’t run any more. I have worn it wearing gym shorts on bikes rides and still very concealable. I do have to work on getting used to drawing it with my shirts tucked as I like to do, so I’ll work at that. Great holster and I just can’t say enough great things about it. A little pricey, but if I would have found it earlier, I wouldn’t have spent so much on so many other holsters. That would have made this a cheap purchase. This holster is a home run.

    I bought this holster a few weeks ago and I have to say it’s the best one I’ve purchased! I have 2 other belly bands and. IWB holster and I’ll take the concealed carry over any of them. I’m a big guy and finding a concealed carry holster is a chore but compared to the other belly bands I gave this is the most comfortable I don’t even know I have it on. My advice bite bullet and get you won’t be sorry.

    I’ve had my holster for approx. two weeks, well pleased with the comfort. I wear it above my waist line, with little to no print. The backing on the holster is very comfortable, little discomfort on the strap. Much better than In-Waist-Ban holster. Have carried S&W 45 and S&W 380, both carried well.

    Started wearing with one mag with my M&P 40. Put on my right side then in the middle of my belly, then high, then inside my pants. A hundred different ways to wear. Now I am trying with two mags. Kinda feels like a back brace. Since I lost weight, I find that it works best for me right in the front behind my belt buckle area. Got to play around with the pants movement because the mags want to work their way out. Not a big deal, just find the sweet spot. This bad boy is total conceal carry!! Glad I got two.

    This is by far the best concealed carry holster that I have ever owned. Very comfortable. I like that I can also carry extra mags with it. No other holster that I own has that ability. It keeps the gun dry if you are sweating. The adjustable retention strap gives you piece of mind. My wife loves hers too! It hides our Glock 43’s very nicely with no printing. Do yourself a favor and get this holster. It will not disappoint.

    The unit is very comfortable to wear. Holds all my Firearms great. I can wear with Belted pants or just plain gym shorts. The only complaint I have are the locations of the extra Magazine Holders. Why would anyone put the Magazines on the same side as the fire arm. This causes you to Have Too change hands to drop and put a new loaded magazine back into the Firearm. I don’t know if the designer has ever been in a fire fight but seconds are very important if you want to Win! Just Saying

    The holster is the best one I have tried. I am not a gun expert but have had a concealed carry permit for 8yrs. It will take a while to get used to drawing the gun and then getting it back into the holster but it is the most comfortable that I have used plus I am carrying a lot more because of it.

    I’ve had this holster a little over a week and have carried my heaviest piece a Ruger SR1911 Stainless Steel combat commander with gym shorts and pants without issues. Now going to carry my 45 crimson carry witch is about 10 ounces lighter should be alot better with the lighter weapon but overall very pleased with my purchase definitely would recommend for those who choose to carry a full size gun.

    No shit, there I was. I received my Brave Response holster in the mail on time and as advertised. It easily fit my large frame Glock, and I strapped it on and was struck by the comfort and secureness of fit in my small of back configuration. Exiting the house I was immediately accosted by a ne’er do well intent on robbery. I dropped to a knee and effortlessly released the patented safety latch and drew down on my attacker. Ignoring my commands to halt, he continued closing and I squeezed off 15 rapid rounds to no effect. I had missed my mark with every shot. Smoothly retrieving a second mag from my Brave Response holster, I emptied another mag with identical results. Secretly thanking the entrepreneurs at Concealedcarry.com for the additional mag capacity of their Brave Response holster, I retrieved my third magazine and emptied it. My assailent continued his attack as I had again missed my mark. With 45 rounds of spent .45 casings around me, I reholstered my weapon, secured the patented safety strap, and unsecured the sturdy, high-quality velcro. Swinging the holstered gun over my head, I intended to bludgeon the reprobate with 2lbs of gun steel and sturdy dernier stitched nylon, when to my surprise he went down hard, knocking himself unconscious on the pavement. He had slipped on the spent casings and remained unconscious as I strapped my comfortable and secure Brave Response holster to my waist and left him bleeding in the gutter. Even if you can’t hit the broad side of a barn with your weapon, the extra mag capacity of the Brave Response holster will enable you to build a protective shield of casings around you. Well done concealedcarry.com.

      Norman, thanks for your product review. First off… if you had been using all three spare magazine pouches you should have had 60 rounds… and thus 60 shells which is always better than 45 🙂 Also, we have an instructor that teaches classes not to far from you… contact us to get a free marksmanship class! Enjoy! While your “experience” may seem far-fetched, we have seen many instances where carrying extra magazines has been crucial, including active shooter situations and assailants on drugs. The article “How Many Rounds Should You Carry Concealed Everyday” discusses this topic, showing how serious real situations may become

    I just received my holster today. So far do good. Only two issues, one of which has been discussed many times, i.e. magazine pockets location. The other is the velcro belt. I would like to have the velcro hook material go the entire length of the belt. Where I will wear it, the last of the loop patches do not line up with the hook patches. If the hook material was full length, the belt would be “fully” adjustable. I don’t want to trim the belt.

    Received this holster and tried to use it. It is nothing more than a cheap attempt to copy the Smart Carry holster which costs less and is very comfortable to wear.
    It should not cost more than $20. I was never so upset when I saw how cheaply made it was.
    The only use I can find is in the home. Just strap it on your hip over whatever you are wearing.
    Waist of money!

    Received my much-anticipated holster about 10 days ago. I am somewhat disappointed. I find it quite uncomfortable, regardless of the weapon (Sig 239, 939, Ruger SP101, Smith featherweight, Ruger LCP, Beretta 92M, Colt 45, Browning HP….etc, etc). I find I am much better served with my belly holster, pocket holster, and on-occasion, high-ankle holster. A+ on your marketing. C on the product actually delivering to the Marketing. I had such high hopes in your direct, confident, no-non-sense approach. I am keeping it…..may use it from time to time and when my belly holster needs cleaning.

    Very nice holster. I have put it through the ringer, wearing it constantly through yard work, on the ground under a mower, etc. Things that bothered: the flap where the front two mags go is worthless to me. It comes up as I bend and the mags (or knife) pushes up very uncomfortably into my gut. Was able to carry a Zippo lighter comfortably, but that’s it. Still looking for the extra mag that was pushed out sometime during the day…the reaction side of the belt tended to fold and pinch the skin when sweaty. Other than these cosmetic issues, best concealment holster I have ever owned! Comfortable, doesn’t print at all. 5’9″, 165 lbs, outside the waistband carrier.

    First things first, before you open your holster watch the tutorial video. Yes, I was almost “that guy” it looks like the wrong side! It isn’t. After that I set my holster up for my extremely accurate and supremely scarce Star Firestarter plus which hasn’t been in production for a few decades. It fits like it was made for it.
    Well, the wife says “you spent $75 for it let’s see how it works and looks. So I ended up giving her a fashion show in my sweat shirts. Talk about comfortable, this actually breathes and I’m not a small guy but I had to cut about 6” off the belt to beaten up the excess which is new to me.
    For those that have ever had to face what to do when nature calls and your weapon is attached to your belt, well here’s the answer to that sticky problem because you drop trou and go with no worries.
    As for comfort? Well this is the first time I haven’t had a hard piece of metal or plastic sticking in my bottom rib when I’m driving and am sure that if I have to draw while sitting it won’t be a problem.

    This holster is really nice, really comfortable, and really well made. At lease from what I can tell so far. I have only had it for a couple weeks and have worn it a couple times. I can say that it fit every pistol I put in it, from the baby Glock 42 all the way to the FNX 45 tact. And that is why I bought it, so I could carry some of my bigger guns and not have to buy 20 different holsters.

    The negatives:

    1. It is a bit of a hassle to get all loaded up, I won’t be using it for my EDC. only for the larger pistols.
    2. I hate having to cross draw for mags, I would’ve loved to see them figure out a way to have the pockets on the other side.
    3. When carrying an extra mag I found one pocket to dig into my hip/stomach, and if I put it in the other it blocked access to the handle of the pistol some. And the third pocket is too small for the mag to fit.

    **pistol used to determine the issues was a H&K P30**

    I bought a different model holster that claimed it would work with a full size pistol. It did not. I got mine in good time and I’m a thin guy. It fits me well and I can carry my Springfield XD 45, two spare mags and a flashlight with no imprint. Everything has a good fit and I can adjust my carry location to the exact spot for my preference. I have zero retention issues and I have used it with all of my full size guns. I was a little concerned about heat in our lovely Texas summer, but so far it is cooler than my IWB holsters and I don’t have to worry about a belt if I choose not to wear one.

    I ordered a holster for myself and my wife…I’ll admit I was skeptical at first, especially about the claimed comfort. Turns out, it is easy to fit to any size weapon and the material doesn’t cause sweating and is easily concealed. My wife found it easy to fit to her form and conceal as well. Well worth the bucks for this one:)

    I received my right handed holster for myself. I was pleasantly surprised that it fit quite well. With the band adjusted it fit nice under my trousers with only the Butt exposed which a loose fitting shirt takes care of nicely. My wife couldn’t tell I was even wearing it with it filled with a Ruger 45 and 3 extra clips. Well done.

    The only negative that I have for it is the material the waist strap is made from. After a while of wearing it, if it is against bare skin it becomes uncomfortable to wear and chaffs skin. If there was a soft backing for it would have scored a perfect 10

    I’ve struggled for the past 5 years trying to find a holster that fit all situations that I want to carry…from church wearing dockers and a tucked in shirt (playing guitar on stage with the worship team) to jogging in the park wearing shorts and a tank top. This holster fits any scenario and I love it. Thanks Brave Response for creating and marketing this truly universal holster. I can carry my Makarov, P-95 Ruger, and 9mm Llama comfortably in any position. My favorite position is on the left as a cross draw (I purchased a right hand holster). Highly recommend this product!

But overall this is the best. I’ll most likely be putting many of my other holsters up on eBay real soon! Also, my old lady is getting her concealed carry next month so I’ll be recommending this to her as well!
