Just got my standard Remora, with sweatshield, for my 27. Wore it all day the other day at the 3 position, walking around, driving, shopping, etc. and I couldn't be happier with it. I felt it, yes, but it was not uncomfortable in the least. I love simple but effective solutions and this is exactly that. I can't imagine when this wouldn't work extremely well for me. Great price, and it arrived way ahead of schedule. Quite happy with my purchase and thanks to many of you for your insights!

Would you guys recommend the RFT(reinforced top, for reholstering) or just the regular one.

I haven't tried the RFT, but the only time the gun leaves the holster is to use it. All other times I just pull holster and all. The regular is thick enough as is for me to not want to add any more bulk. Unless you plan to use it alot at the range, I would go with the standard.

Anybody thinking of getting a Remora, now would be a good time. I just ordered one today and they are running a 20% off St.Patricks Day sale. Code is shamrock20.

Glad to help. Just got mine in the mail today. Nice little holster, I was a little worried about no clip but that sucker isn't going anywhere! Stays nicely where you put it.

I just ordered and received my new Remora for the PPS. I went with the leather interior, seems to be a little thinner. Great so far.

I have a Remora for my 26, 19, Taurus .38/357 revolver and just got one for a Bersa 380. All without RFT and all but the one for the revolver with the sweat shield. I'd recommend the SS because it keeps the gun off your skin AND gives a bit extra surface to help with the retention.

The Glock 23 conceals fairly easily.

Bought one for my 27. Had all the worries about it, but figured I'd give it a try... I love it!

I guess that it would work well with a G19.

Just got mine last week and wore it all weekend. I had the same doubts never seeing one except for here. I have to be honest, I am REAL impressed with it. Wore it with sweatpants and my G27 didn't move.

And the customer service is incredible. If you have any doubts, don't, you'll be glad you got it.

Just my $0.02

How was the draw? I have had the holster pull with the gun on occasion.

If the fit is too tight, this can happen. I am breaking in a new one now that this happens with (44 mag revolver). If I push the gun in too far it sticks and the holder will pull with the gun.

I break it in by letting the gun stay fully engaged in the holster and practice pulling whenever I get a chance. If I don't push it in too far it is fine for carrying. It is loosening up.

It is somewhat embarrassing to have the holster come out with the handgun during a draw.

Has anyone tried one with the new "Remora-Hyde" leather lining?

I'm wondering what the pros and cons are to this (wears longer versus less retention) versus the original lining.

Well, in my case my gun fit well. I decided to wear it for a full day (edit: ok, two days :-) )with it to "fit" my G27. Friday all day, Saturday all day. Sunday, with a safe and CLEARED weapon, I practiced drawing and had no issues. There is a YouTube video on fitting the holster to the gun you may want to check out... I'll look for the link.

I'd also email Allen and he can help with fit and draw issues and help with the proper adjustments.
