Gear Alien Gear Holster New Clip Options David Reeder January 31, 2016 Join the Conversation We recently learned that Alien Gear Holsters is offering six new “premium holster clip options” for CCW/IWB carry. Founded in 2013, Alien Gear Holsters says they manufacture “..the most comfortable gun holsters on the planet.” That's a pretty serious claim, though we must admit they do have a good reputation. These clips are described as being built of drum-dyed leather loops, steel clips (or ‘C’ and ‘J’ clips), made of an impact modified nylon called Nylon Super Tough. They tell us each clip offers a different benefit to the carrier, but that all are considered to be affordable and of a premium line. Drew Stephens, Lead Engineer, advises how to utilize them. “To customize the inside of the waistband holster, simply swap out the standard nylon clip with the drum-dyed leather loops, steel clips, or ‘C’ and ‘J’ clips for enhanced concealability.” “The ‘C’ clip has a smaller visible profile but good retention over a belt, and the ‘J’ clip has the smallest visible profile and hooks under the belt only. Although Stephens prefers the enhanced concealability of the ‘C’ and ‘J’ clips, Manufacturing Manager Jonnie Hebert prefers the quality and craftsmanship of Alien Gear’s leather loops, which are complete with directional snaps for added security. “When you see and feel the quality of these leather loops, you will rest easy knowing that when your holster is attached by this option, it will be there when you really need it,” Hebert says. Alien Gear further advises they select only the best English Bridle leather available and will turn distributors away if their leather quality is subpar. It’s likely we will all agree it is important to not only have the pistol well hidden, but equally so to have it accessible and comfortable. Most of us want to look fashionable (or at least not to have our gun stick out like the balls on a bulldog) while doing so and Alien Gear Holsters appears to also be aiding with this feature.
