Ok. Got home to my Atomic Dog holster last night.  I don't know what kind of set up Brian has, but this isn't like what I think of when I think of handmade holsters. The external cut lines have a flow to them that is so smooth, they seem to be machine made. I still like, and will continue to use my Bravo Concealment Systems holster, but as good as it is, I think this one is better.


Now, for the pics. Yes, I got desert digital because I wear Khaki cargos or Khaki cargo shorts about 90 percent of the time. They vary color and my theory was that with the way light flows over clothing that may have wrinkles, pockets, other variances in visual flow, the desert digital would help blend a bit into the various color khakis I have. If it doesn't work like that, I'll krylon it.


You can see here that there is not a lot of holster under the bottom of the gun. Pro: easier to conceal owb. Con: less protection for the lens of the light.  


As you can see here, like other similar holsters, it's not a straight line from the loops, and It shouldn't be. With the weight of a full size gun with a light on it, the pressure applied by the belt through the three contact points, helps keep the holster stable and tight against the body for concealability. It's also the slightest variation of a full straight line I've seen among the 3 brands of holsters I've owned, thus, will put less stress on the holster itself. People break belt clips, so this is a good thing in my mind.


Now, the mag holder. fit to the mags is as excellent as the holster to the gun. It has adjustable tension which is something new to me. BUT, I've never seen another dual mag holder from another company.


Now, I dig this.  Brian took the time to trim the hardware so he could make the holster lower profile. I dig it.


Now, the downside.
I ordered IWB clips and Brian forgot to put them in the package. I emailed him, he's been great and I fully expect them to be in the mail no later than tomorrow.

I'd have to check for sure, but I was quoted 4 months and it took I think 3 and a half.

I have an all kydex holster, similar to yours, and IWB just didn't work well. The holster was extremely stiff and didn't feel good against the body. YMMV

I bought a raven years ago when they had a wait of a few weeks. Raven is of the opinion that they're the original and everyone else is a copy. I'm of the opinion that raven recently switched to thick kydex because of the positive feedback other companies got for it.

If you need a holster NOW, bravo concealment can ship in days but they have very limited weapon/light inventory. I have one and like it.

I have the same experience with raven, but sometimes the discomfort is worth it, it won't be a full time mode of carry.

I got CompTac's MTAC holster in the other day. Completely badass. I'm gonna see if I can get em to build me the same holster in a light-carrying variation.

I've had it on for 13 hours, 9 of which were at the wheel. It's a not a source of discomfort. My wife says it conceals totally.
