    Got in a Remora holster for my g26 and wore it all day yesterday around town. I have to say that I am really impressed. I wore it iwb with loose fitting cargo shorts and no belt with a tshirt. It was a really hot day and it had to be adjusted a couple times because of sweat making it a little less tacky. But in those instances it moved only about an inch. I bet it wouldn't have moved at all if I had tighter fitting shorts on. I am still going to get a tuckable iwb holster for it. I got the artemis reinforced top which makes it easier to get a good grip and allows for single hand reholstering. I tested this out many times and it works very well. For the money this holster will allow for many different types of carry.

    I have 3 Remora holsters and they work great for appendix carry. Easy to take on and off. If you wear a regular pants belt they don't move at all. I have tried just about everything, rolling, jumping, even hung upside down and they do not move. Great versatile holster. I recommend getting the reinforcment for one hand holstering and the sweat guard.

    Does it allow the full firing grip on the 26?

    I've got to jump in here and say that the Remora is one of the easiest holsters ever to forget that your wearing. I've never had one move on me at all. I carry a G27 usually although I have carried a G19 and G23 in one before. Same excellent results, regardless of the gun. The hold-open feature is well worth the few bucks, IMHO.

    Add the sweat shield for another $5 and you have one of the best IWB holster for the cost. Just ordered another one today.

    I did just that. After I got my 1st one last week and carried my G29 with swim trunks and a shirt I orderd 2 more just got them today. Without a doubt it is the most comfortable AIWB available and does everything as advertised. It just does not move.Alan is a good guy to work with.

    For 3-4 o'clock I still find the MTAC and Blade-Tech Nano more comfortable.

    Yeah, 9 months ago when I was talking about what a comfortable product remora is every troll in the land kept saying that I was a "rep" trying to get them free advertising on GT... Now that people have actually tried their product & love it... What now? Great option for deep concealment! I have 1 for every model I own- makes my kelTec vanish!

    G29 in a bathing suit little or no movement. Draw your own conclusion. Don't know of any other IWB holster I can do that with. No Clips. Only draw back is next to the skin it can pull some hair.

    I find the retention to be something that never crosses my mind. And I am used to a thumb break holster. If it was any problem whatsoever, I couldn't be comfortable with it. I don't hang by my knees on the monkey bars but I would think it would retain the gun even then. Retention is not a problem.

    I got mine yesterday for my G19 and love it! It is comfortable and secures nicely. I'm glad I made the purchase.

    Personally, I wouldn't have an IWB holster other than the Remora. If it has those belt loops on it, to me that just screams out "I've got a gun!" The Remora, which stays put without straps or loops by means of the material it's made of, is far superior in my opinion. I've had a Cross Breed Super Tuck, a Galco King Tuk, and a couple of no name IWB holsters and I've sold or given every single one away. I still have every Remora I've ever bought. The fact that one size often fits multiple guns is just a bonus.
