The Remora holster is designed to stick to your skin and waste band without a belt clip.
Earlier Last Year I was in the market for a new holster to try. Someone explained just how much they enjoyed their new Remora holster. I purchased one and tried it myself.
The one that I purchased was the reinforced top one so I would get a stiffer holster design. It also has the In the Waste-band Tuckable Option. I got the tuck option because I didn’t really trust it to stay in place.
With my holster, I got an extra magazine pouch that was designed the same way.
All of this was about 30-40 dollars.
Honestly, I didn’t think it was extremely comfortable. I could wear my full-sized firearm for about 3 hours, and then I had to put it up.
For the first hour, it was comfortable and then tolerable for the next two. After that, I just couldn’t do it anymore. I think part of it was the fact that I ordered the “extra stiff” holster.
The magazine pouch was more annoying on my hip than the holster. I opted out of ever carrying that pouch.
Yes it did. It needed no belt clip. I didn’t even need a belt to keep it in place, unless I was concerned about my pants sagging under the weight of the firearm.
I did many activities over the year and never had this thing slip. As far as the non-stick rubber keeping the gun in place, they have top marks in my book.
I used this thing in training a few times, and quick draw was fairly easy. It held my gun out just far enough for me to easily grab it. I never thumb-nailed my side with this holster.
If you wanted to tuck a shirt in, sure it would work. If you wore baggy clothing, sure it would work. But it also was harder to conceal than some other holsters that I have. Remember that I carry a full-sized sidearm.
It was too bulky. It was fairly visible if I didn’t place it just right. I had to add quite a bit of angle to the holster. I had to cant the angle at least 35 degrees to make it less conspicuous and more comfortable.
It can easily sit in my drawer, and when I am ready, I can grab the holster and slide it right under the waste band with little fuss. My favorite holster takes a while to put on, but not the Remora.
I could tell that this was a well-constructed holster that will not fall apart very soon. Even after all the time I spent using it, it barely showed any signs of wear at all.
I would give it a 3 of 5 stars. Overall it is convenient, easy to draw from, and stayed in place without any belt clips, and was extremely durable.
After just a few hours, it became uncomfortable. It also lacked concealment. I had to cant my weapon almost 35 degrees to add comfort and concealment.
