VOTE NOW: The Best Holster In The History Of Ever, Version 2016


Back in our early days of 2014, we ran a very successful poll and asked one simple question: Which holster company is your favorite? Over 20,000 votes were captured.

Well, we’re doing it again. Except this time, it’s going to be a little more personal.

The great folks over at the /CCW subreddit released a poll that showed not only what holsters people owned, but which ones they actually used. We couldn’t agree more that there’s a big difference, and we wanted to see what results we could come up with in comparison.

The new poll below aims to find the Utilization Rate of holsters, as well as other variables, by asking five simple questions:

1) What holster(s) have you owned?
2) What holster(s) have you actually used on a regular basis?
3) What holster is the most comfortable?
4) What holster is the best bang for your buck?
5) Which holster companies have seen your repeat business?


That’s it! The poll will run for the entire month of March. At the end, we’ll find the utilization rate for each holster voted on, as well as the #1 most comfortable holster and the #1 best bang for your buck, and see just how many of you have gone back to the same company for more products.


You may vote ONCE, for the duration of the poll. If your holster(s) is not on the current list, you may add it at the end of each question by filling out the name of the holster company in the ‘Other’ field.


Any holster company may share this page URL to give their fans access to the poll. However, holster companies may not entice or solicit responses by offering any type of giveaway for participating, or any other similar method in an attempt to solicit participation, other than providing the link to this page (custom graphics are ok, too). Any holster companies found to engage is such activity will be immediately disqualified from the poll, at the discretion of Concealed Nation. When in doubt, just ask!

    Alien Gear has surpassed all my expectation for concealed carry gear. Super comfortable at a great price. Their belts are off the charts ….I looked at belts at twice the price that didn’t compare. I’m an Alien now!

  • Mike

    Great holster, tucks very well, great fit and quaility.
    My friend has a IWB holster and paid $275 for it and has had to have the shell replaced twice already. He is ready to purchase one of the Alien gear ones.

  • Robert capaldi

    I have one it is the best holster I have ever had I just have a slight problem it is so good I forget I have a gun on me it is number #1

  • Robert

    make a shell so I can keep my laser/light combo attached please

    • shawn jarman

      Not a fan of using a laser, I personally don’t want to give my position away if some choices to enter my home in the dark

  • Erich Smith

    Alien gear is my personal favorite, comfortable and enough adjustments to fit my needs. Lifetime shell swap is a huge bonus, traded in a handgun for a different model and sent my old shell back for a shell that fit my new gun.

  • Don O. Benson

    If you are looking for value, quality, comfort then you can’t do better than Alien Gear or Foxx holsters. These two companies combine these three items the best of all the others I have owned and tried and believe me there have been a bunch………..

  • shawn jarman

    Alien gear has stands behind their product, I ended up with a tear in my holster, and contacted them, they quickly replaced it with no cost to me, my only regret when I first ordered my holster is! I wish I would have taken the two holster deal

    • DonCarluchio

      If it wasn’t that long ago call them. I did the same thing and within a week I knew I was going to use this a lot so I called and they honored the deal. Sent me out a second holster for the the difference on what I paid for the one and what the 2 holster deal price was! Alien gear rocks!

      • shawn jarman

        It’s been over a year, wish I’d have thought about calling them back when I first received my holster

  • todd cafferty

    my alien gear 3.0 is so comfortable and stealthy,i love this holster!!

  • C6Vette

    The most comfortable concealed carry holster I have ever owned, best bang for the buck! Can not see myself going back to the others!

  • Wally Holmesly

    Own eight Alien Gear holsters…..Personally, without question I think they are the best out there. Comfortable, quiet, easy to maintain and the price point is ridiculous. And, kind of like Cracker Jacks you get a prize (AlienGear sticker) every time. I have recommended these holsters to my buddies and my customers. Great product and excellent customer service.

  • Burnbarrel

    Use Raw Dog with the taurus pt111 g2. Got it for the price and wouldn’t sell it for twice the price except to turn around and buy two. Comfortable conceals well and stays put.
