Very comfortable IWB carry. I gigged it one star for the belt clip.I prefer a closed loop for this manner of carry so I'm not a fan of the quick in/out clip. It did not seem to fully lock under my gun belt and so I worry about drawing the holster with the weapon. Other than that, everything is fantastic

I am not a fire arms expert but I asked one and he recommended redeye. I can't rate it in every area because of my lack of experience but the thing that I noticed and liked was that the gun was totally secure on my body. I could turn backflips and this thing isn't going to move. It gives me confidence to wear the arm more. It's an inside the waste band so it's going to know it's there vs an outside the waste band but it's more concealed that way and I wanted as much concealment as I could get. I use it with a S&W Sheld 9MM. The unit appears to be build like a tank and should last many many years.

I carry my G43 in this holster AIWB and have for over a year. I was initially worried the kydex would not be comfortable, especially when sitting or driving. I attribute the reason it's so comfortable is the fact there are no sharp edges or corners. It's obvious extra care was taken in the design and finishing processes to produce one of the best concealed carry holsters on the market.

Don't waste your money on anything else. I have and I can say that this is the best holster for my 43. Always wear on an all leather belt, quality belt. This holster is top quality...quality isn't expensive, it's priceless. I wear it every day..no problems.

Purchased for my hubby who had a leather holster previously. He loved it. Said it was comfortable however the belt clip is not long enough. I was pleased with the delivery time.

So this is my first entry into the appendix style carry.
I will say that this is a great holster.
The edges are very smooth and don't dig into you. The belt clip is solid and keeps the holster attached to your pants. Finally, the retention of this thing is crazy good.
This is a great holster, I just need to get myself used to the appendix carry.

Good work, the holster is sufficient but, I spent the extra money for the QS version to upgrade from my old shielder and I don't really see where the improvements are. My old holster from red eye had a nice bevel at the barrels end and made it easier to tuck into my belt, this one does not. The kydex is slightly asymmetrical where it meets the trigger guard (where it clicks into the holster) and there is a decent amount of play even when the tension is adjusted to the maximum tightness. I do like the holster but I don't really see where the extra $ went on the upgrade and if I'm being honest I prefer my older less expensive one.

Couldn't be happier with my new holster. Great quality, shupped fast and it's now my favorite iwb holster. I might order another one.

Been wearing this one for a little over a week now and I have no complaints. I have a little extra around the waist and was worried about it poking me all the time but I have had no issues at all. Great quality holster
