I carry IWB pretty much everywhere, every day.  I have been using a Foxy Tuck holster that my buddy Thomas makes for the last 3 or 4 years and have been very happy with it.  It is super comfortable and it carries really well for me.



 I have tried several other IWB holsters over the years summer companions, Galco, blackhawk and a few others in my drawers, but none of them even compared to the Foxy Tuck.

But my Foxy has started to stretch out, so it does not hold my gun as tight at I would like plus I just like to try things new. 

So I ordered a Alien Gear cloak tuck 3.0.  I have carried with it for several days now and it is extremely comfortable.  Probably slightly more comfortable than the Foxy.  Which for me says a lot as the Foxy rides super well, you don't even notice it is on.  The Alien gear has rubber buffers at all the screw points, so you can adjust tension in the clips and holster which should fix the issue of it stretching out. 

Shipped they are just over $50.  They are lifetime guaranteed and they will even let you exchange the shell for free for a different pistol if you want to trade at some point.

The CS is great too.  I had some issues with shipping because of my local post office.  I called and talked to them about it and they immediately shipped me a second holster and just told me if the other one arrives to just refuse delivery.   They both ended up arriving, and I liked the one so much I decided to keep the second one as well.  I called them up so I could have them bill for me the second one.  They ran my card and gave me free shipping for the second one.  I was very happy with the CS. 

Anyway, if you are looking for a good quality IWB holster, and you like kydex I would give them a good look.

I've used a few alien holsters.... my experience was they stretch rather quick and wore out fast.  Alien was good about replacing, 3 times, for me but I finally got tired of the headache and bought on of these -

So far after 2 years of use its still just like the it always has been.  No stretch and perfect balance. And the lined Kydex has never wore on the gun after hundreds of draws and use.

I hope they sorted it out and you get one that will last as long as you previous one but if it doesn't try Tucker, you'll be happy.

I've used Alien Gear for two yrs now and they are very comfortable. I did learn the hard way that the plastic belt clips are quick to give up. I didn't want the metal clips as from experience with other holsters the metal clips wear and fray you pants. May not be fare to Alien Gear as I have not yet tried their metal clips. Also I don't hip carry and at last check they don't make a holster for my style of carry. So I improvised which also tested their holster in a way they likely didn't intend. I plan to talk with one of their tech's to see if they are ready to expand to other carry styles and offer a design I have come up with. But for the friends I know that use Alien Gear they report that it is the best they have seen so far. And for the quality and design the price is darn good!!!

Salute!

I have seen Alien gear here in South Africa, seems like a extremely nice holster. Has any one tried the Stealthgear USA holsters?
