    I received my Remora holster today and used it all day so far and really am a big fan. i was in and out of my truck, moving about, lifting things, and doing other day to day tasks and it never moved. i was carrying my 27 and it was simply great.
    i know a lot of people dont like the idea of not having the holster actually attached to something like your belt but once you feel this holster, it pretty much is "attached" to your pants. the outside material is very tacky.
    this is an impressive product and i encourage you guys to give it a try.

    I love mine, too. However, I did use a boxcutter to remove the sewn on logo. Looks a lot cleaner.

    It's "ok" but it's awfully thick. I still prefer my MTAC and Blade-Tech Nano.

    I agree that it is rather thick but I think that's what adds to the comfort. If the holster material was any thinner I think it would poke your side more and be annoying. The only issue that I've found so far was that when I have my shirt tucked in with the holster between my shirt and hip that If I had to draw, I think while untucking my shirt I would pull the entire holster and gun out of my pants.

    In addition, as the first picture in the OP's post shows, it doesn't leave much of the grip sticking out with certain mouse guns. Makes it a little hard to draw properly.

    The thickness, overall size, and inability to grasp the pistol butt properly led me to go back to the Nemeses on my P3AT. Additionally on the P3AT I had several instances of inadvertent magazine release in a couple month period with the Remora for the P3AT. Almost never happened with the Nemeses, and I've been using a P3AT and Nemesis for almost 7 years. Inadvertent mag release hasn't happened yet with my Kahrs or PT145 and the Remora.

    I don't pocket carry any of my Kahr micro pistols, but a proper grip is still a little hard to obtain with them in a Remora. The Remora for my Mil Pro PT145 woks a little better since it's a larger mouse gun. But it's still a little hard to grasp the pistol grip properly on the draw. All my Nemesis present much more of the grip for a smoother draw.

    I still consider the 'jury out' on the Remora with these other pistols.

    What size remora is that? Is it the generic or Artemis cut?

    I finally got around to ordering one, myself. I also went w/an ART RFT, mine for a G17/22/31, etc. Ordered it yesterday, got the e/m it's shipping today!

    I've been using the Remoras for quite a while now, and - as I've said on other forums - I wish these things had been invented a quarter-century ago when I started carrying. I've done all manner of activities with them on, and someone on a forum recently showed me how they can be used as tuckables. I just love them. I own fancy-schmancy holsters, but various Remoras comprise my primary carry method now.
