There is a limitless amount of Velcro holsters to choose from in the gun industry today. It even becomes more difficult to narrow down your options if you are trying to buy online.
The best way to go about it is by knowing what you want from a Velcro holster, and some of the things you should consider include the following:
The comfort of a Velcro holster ranks amongst the most important factors in purchasing one. If you have to wear the Velcro holster on a daily basis, then you cannot compromise for comfort.
The best Velcro holsters should always offer support such that activities like walking or running would not loosen the holster's grip on the Velcro.
One of the most common innovations that companies use to enhance support of Velcro holsters today is the Neoprene and Velcro method. This works in such a way that the Velcro strap sticks to the neoprene band and remains in place at all times.
Another common support option is the calf strap where the strap goes around the calf before joining with the Velcro holster.
The common materials for Velcro holsters are leathers and nylons. Some companies also combine more than one material.
Materials are important because they are the most determining factor of a holster's durability.
In this case, nylons will not be ideal because they are not durable. Leathers, on the other hand, can last for a long time. There are also some Velcro holsters that make use of finished leathers to repel natural elements and make them last even longer.
Choosing a Velcro holster made from leather also has more to it than just durability. Leather’s soft texture and feel on the skin makes it a comfortable material.
Leather holsters tend to cost more than nylons, so if you are working with a limited budget, your most realistic option might be a nylon holster. A nylon holster will last for just a few months depending on how frequently you use it.
However, since the bone of contention here is the best material for a Velcro holster, you will be better off with leather.
Another factor that comes into play when choosing a Velcro holster is what you want to use the holster for. Some common uses of holster include the following:
It is an exceptional product for concealed carry. It features one holster and an extra pocket to carry a mag or other relevant item. It can accommodate most full-size to sub-compact pistols and revolvers. The retention is secured by a magnetic metal snap fastener. It is a universal holster, has a quick and quiet draw, and is useful for concealed carry. It is very comfortable in high-quality neoprene.
It is a universal holster that fits most large and small-size handgun frames, and it has a new tech adhesive velcro hook for durability and a quieter release.
However, the holster and mag pouch is on the same side.
This drop leg holster was designed for standard and compact pistols. It has an extra pouch for magazines, making you extremely prepared for self-defense and tactical situations. It provides discreet concealment, and allows you to be extra comfortable without breaking a sweat.
Its adjustability combined with its nylon designed material makes it an adjustable and versatile holster that can fit large and medium and small sized pistols. It comes with adjustable straps equipped with rubber lining to prevent it from slipping down your legs while walking.
It has secure retention from a Velcro strap and a snap button. It is also an inexpensive drop leg holster, and people with a tight budget can purchase it.
It is an ideal choice for you as a civilian CCW owner, and lets you catch attackers unawares with a great concealment holster hidden in the unlikeliest place.
This is a fully adjustable concealed carry holster that can serve the purpose of both a bra holster and a shoulder holster. It is designed with lightweight materials that are breathable and keep the body cool all day long.
It has flat seams to eradicate friction, making it comfortable to move your arms. It is anti-sweat and will keep the gun safe from perspiration. The bra holster adjusts to any type of body, making it suitable for men and women. Its military-grade elasticity means that it is a great choice for the police, law enforcement officer, and military personnel.
CCW Tactical Shoulder/Bra Holster allows both right and left-hand draws with holster pocket on both sides. All you have to do is choose based on your preferred choosing hand. The Velcro retention strap features a hook and loop closure. It is adjustable and will help you carry your gun in a safe and secure manner by snuggling it into the body to prevent sagging.
In terms of concealment, the holsters leave no print, and this is a result of how expandable it is. It also has swift draw properties for withdrawing comfortably. It can be worn over or underclothes, and this does not affect withdrawing the firearm in either a vertical or sitting position.
If you have difficulty in getting a bra holster that supports your gun, CCW Tactical Shoulder/Bra Holster has stretchy pockets and thumb breaks that make it ideal for various gun models.
This is another affordable ankle holster that is suitable for those trying to purchase one on a limited budget. What drew my attention to this holster is its quality, even at the price, it goes for. It does not only strap the gun to your ankle, but also provides comfortability and safety.
Uncle Mike's Off-Duty and Concealment Kodra Nylon Ankle Holster is not a great choice for tactical situations because it is only a right-handed holster. Law enforcement officers and members of the military would also not fancy it for its limitation. However, it is a good conceal carry ankle holster for civilians that want to purchase on limited budgets.
It has a Velcro strap that keeps the holster in place, preventing it from sliding down the leg. The strap makes adjustment easy and keeps the holster secured. The Velcro strap also serves as retention to the holster and makes sure the gun fits it, securely at all times.
It has an outer layer that is designed with nylon materials making it more durable, and resistant to sweat and water. The sturdy form of the nylon also provides double stitching on parts of the holster that are under more pressure.
However, one thing that discouraged me about this holster is the fact that it is only available for right-handed users. So if you are left-handed, you may have to opt for other available options.
The holster’s fabric is easy on the skin, and it has a cell foam moisture barrier that provides comfortable padding. It will effectively conceal small sized handguns, medium sized handguns, and large frame automatic guns.
At the back of the bag is the velcro panel perfect for velcros pouches. On the bottom of the bag are two layers of fabric which is also a pocket. The velcro opening is perfect for a rain fly or an extra layer of foam depending on the contents you are using.
Then there are small loops for sleeping bag rolls on the back of the bag, high grade aerospace or mesh with closed-cell foam, a single strap with 12-millimeter closed-cell foam dual density.
This strap can be rotated from left or right and the crossbody strap can also be positioned left or right-handed with other packs.
If the buckle, unfortunately, breaks, it is not an issue, you can take the compression strap off and put it through the loop and you are ready to rock and roll again.
It has a reinforced two-inch webbing hole handle reinforced with plastic on the side that makes it a comfortable handle. Then there is a small tunnel for an optional waist strap. The backboard can be used as a snow shovel, a paddle, and also as compression wrap. As you pull the compression straps off, they can be used in any of these holes over any damaged limb.
Velcro holsters are designed such that they can be used in various ways, both by civilians for self defence, and members of the military for their tactical duties. They are versatile and functional holsters, and those that can attach to other surfaces can be used for strategic purposes.
