I use them mostly for pocket carry in my coats.
I have carried in a Remora while squatting repeatedly to lift stones and move them around the yard without any movement of the rig. I was wearing a belt which obv. gives better compression for the Remora than not using a belt. I have worn a Remora while working under my car, working in the yard, canoeing, hiking, camping... I have never had any issue with a Remora holster moving. I have found that the Remora is even more secure if you place it inside your underwear directly against your hip. Its just more "sticky" against your skin.

I don't have to cinch my pants or belt up any tighter than when I'm not carrying. If you already have an issue with your pants falling down because you don't have a butt to and/or you're fat, you may have an issue with a Remora if you don't wear a belt.
