What keeps it from being pulled out with the pistol? I assume something to do with the name "sticky"?

Thanks hfjeff....must be turkey overdose syndrome....
Acepilot....yes it does...the outer material is one that clings to whatever it touches it.
Acepilot.....more about how it works....
How does a Sticky Holster work?
The outside skin is a super non-slip material that, with a little pressure, adheres to just about anything. That outer material combined with the inner closed-cell foam and the inner liner keep your pistol and the holster securely in place. In the pocket, it works like any other pocket holster. However, when you pull the gun, the outer layer grabs the inside of your pocket. Our modular products use the same "Sticky" material against itself to hold the holster and gun in place. In addition, with use and body heat, your Sticky Holster will conform to your particular gun, making a custom fit.
I have one of those for pocket carry of my wife's p238. I don't trust it for IWB because I had an unloaded gun fall out of the WB when testing it around the house.
It works fine for pocket carry, but I had to sew bottom the pocket to the leg of the trousers because the pocket came out with the holster. Now the pocket stays put and the holster stays in the pocket.
My primary carry is a heavy P239, so pocket carry doesn't work with that one.
And this is different than a Remora holster?

lchamp...I have not had any problem with this holster (pouch) moving around or coming out of the waistband at all...never....The inside of the holster is a different material (non-sticky) so the handgun has no problem on extraction. I really love it....most comfortable IWB holster I have had to date (an Jesus I do have a few)....
That said, for me this style is best suited for around the house or pocket carry - I just prefer a physically attached holster when I leave the home.
Lindy1933....Have not seen the Remora in person but looking online looks about the same thing.......
Good for between the car seats etc. but I don't like them for IWB. Will stick with leather.
OP: glad the holster works for you. I have a remora mag holder that carries my EDC flashlight. It has slipped on me, here and there, but very rarely. As a whole, I like it, I would still have concerns placing a firearm in one. Going solely off of the websites, I like that Sticky Holsters offers their mag holders with OWB or IWB capabilities and Remora doesn't,...But I like that Remora offers a sweat guard and Sticky doesn't.

high pockets....No...None at all..I am a business owner in Kernersville NC who has purchased a few leather IWB holders with belt clips and found them to be most uncomfortable and extraction was less than desires due to cut of holsters. Ran into the Sticky holster at a local range and just determined it worked for me a lot better.
