    I wanted to get something smaller than my 23 to CCW (still waiting for permit, crazy back log). Then by chance I purchased a Remora Holster. Seems quite comfortable, in fact very comfortable. Comfortable enough to forgo the need to get a 27 or something smaller. The 23 seems to conceal quite well. Just need to keep wearing it around the homestead to get accustomed to the no clip/loop design. So far it stays put and doesn't move at all. Comp-Tac or something similar may still be down the line but for now I'm very happy with my Remora. And one other plus is no expensive gun belt to purchase. I'm new to the holster game but for now I feel that I have a great start.

    I certainly like my Remora holsters, especially for car travel.

    I've been using mine for about a week now and must say I'm kinda impressed. G26 completely disappears and even with gym shorts with just elastic it stays put. I wouldn't trust it jogging just yet but so far zero issues and very comfortable.

    I like Remora a lot. One of the only holsters ive found that can accommodate a laser.

    Just ordered a Remora IWB original holster for my Glock 17 after exchanging a few emails with Remora's owner, Alan. I have not received it yet, but the customer service so far has been top notch. Not to mention the customer service I've read about through other people's experiences. Remora has won me over already.

    I like the remora for my .38 SPL. I'm not sure it is up for the weight of the 17 ( In my case 22), but I'm think of adding one for my 27.

    I had trouble when ordering my holster, so I called their CS number. The female who answered didn't seem as knowledgeable as I was hoping. After two phone calls and 3 different holster recommendations she finally checked with the "holster specialist" and found out the correct holster. Overall it was pleasant but her lack of knowledge put me off. I'm happy I ordered though.

    I have two Remora holsters, one for my Glock 23, and one for my LC9. I like them so much that my CrossBreed Super Tuck holster sits in a drawer and is never used. Not only are Remora holsters comfortable, but with the lack of clips they are so much easier to experiment with placement and cant. I have found that my G23 is better concealed with the Remora vs CBST at least for me.

    Remoras, IMO, are very good for a quick git and go. You can grab one, put your pistol in it and stick it in your waistband. On a whim, if you want to go somewhere without a lot of prep. I love my 3 Remoras.

    They're great, I have several. Tips: 1) Make sure your belt is snug, as the belt is what really keeps your gun in position. 2) The "stickiness" diminishes over time. Wash the exterior with a little soap and warm water and it'll be as sticky as new.

    Great to see so many Remora converts, I always sound like I sell them or something when I endorse them. I truly to enjoy the simplicity and crazy good comfort from them. The ability to quickly just adjust the position if you are in for a long car ride or want a better cant to it, simple, affordable, great quality. Diggin mine, looking at a Full sweat shield model or sweat shield, can't decide, to avoid hammer dig in the summertime with my 229. Anyone have the full shield versus the shield?

    I have two and I use them on a limited basis. I think in most situations that a holster needs to be attached. a Remora carry is IMO just a step up from just tucking a gun in your belt. it does cover the trigger well and under most conditions doesn't move a lot, but it is in no way close to being secure as a good quality holster that attaches to the belt. 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.

    I love my Ramora #6 for my Glock 27. In Florida where it's hard to conceal without "printing," I slip the #6 in the back pocket of my cargo shorts. Comfortable, no printing and the butt rides just high enough so that when I sit I don't even know I'm wearing it. It's padded and very comfortable. The best $25. bucks I ever spent.

    Are G17s too large for Remoras?

    I do think they make great pocket holsters. I use the one I bought for my 27 to carry my G30sf in my coat pocket

    I do. Why not? The trigger is covered.
