Remora Holster

If you are unaware of Remora Holsters or the Sticky Holster Brand, you would be surprised at what they would do.  I have seen videos of people jumping, running, and cartwheeling with these holsters staying in place.

The Remora holster is designed to stick to your skin and waste band without a belt clip.

Why I Purchased a Remora Holster, How Much It Costs

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.

The Remora Holster was a Little Uncomfortable for Me

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.

The Remora Holster Stayed in Place

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.

Quick-Drawing from the Remora Holster is Easy

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.

The Remora Holster is a Little Lacking in Concealment

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.

My Remora was Convenient for a Grab-n-Go Holster

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.

Manufacturing Quality of 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.

Overall Rating of the Remora Full Sized Holster

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.
