You do know about the Neutral Cant MTAC that is made for AIWB?

I have recently started carrying a Glock 19 AIWB. I have been carrying in a High noon Mr Softy made for a Glock 26. I carry with a Wilderness 5 stitch. I have noticed my back being tender and not sure if my carry set up is contributing. I know the MTAC/CTAC holsters are popular because the ditribute the weight of the gun so that its not all on on point. I wonder if this would be an option for appendix carry. I like the SideGuard I have for my j frame with the offset clip I wonder if that would help. I figure where the belt hits the holster would be one point and the offset clip would be the second. I am just wondering thoughts.
I guess I didn't realize that. How much further lower can it be adjusted?
BTW, my favorite AIWB holster is not the MTAC. It is the Archangel made by Dale Fricke for One Source Tactical. Here it is with a Glock 19.
Cool thanks. I like it lower because I am quite active yet I sit and bend a lot during the day. I find it riding lower aids it not digging in my gut. I do realize that not being able to get a full grip is a sacrafice. I try to practice my draw a little more than normal. I also know that a lot of the advocates of AIWB recommend higher ride for the very reason of being able to get a full grip. The picture of the Archangel is about my preference yet the center of the gun is just about center the button and the first belt loop. I find this more comfortable. I know you understand South Ga heat and humidity and some days anything more than a t shirt is over kill. I guess I figure the MTAC/CTAC style would spread the weight on the belt in more space than a single or close double attachment point. Thanks for making me think.
All that leather on the MTAC can get hot in the Summer. Raven Concealment Systems has a AIWB holster with spread out attachment points, but I have no experience with their holsters. Lots of guys say they are great, but from what I have heard the wait can be long possibly.
I highly recommend the ArchAngel...
You mention your lower back being sore...read the review below for the Urban Fighting Belt. Coincidentally, it's available at the same place you will find the AA, OneSource Tactical.
My experience is very close to this review. I have owned many gun belts...this is by FAR the most comfortable...

Customer Comments - The first thing that struck me about it is how light and floppy it is. It reminded me of a thicker version of the issue Boy Scout belt I wore as a kid. At first I wasn't sure it was going to do the job of supporting my EDC gear.
I've been wearing an Instructor belt, first a Galco reinforced and then a Wilderness 5-stitch, for about twelve years or so, and I've gotten used to having a heavy, stiff belt around my waist. The UFB made my pants feel about two pounds lighter. I was actually dissapointed with its light construction until I went and put it on.
I was born without much of a butt (I know, TMI), with my back just sort of sloping into my legs, and I never before noticed just how much the heavy stiff intructor belt slides down on me before. I've become used to constantly hitching my pants back into place all day long, but I found that the UFB does in fact stay put during rough activity with a pistol IWB, which is something that my Instructor belts won't do without having to tighten it to the point of uncomfortable. I did some jumping jacks, ran around some, and then went to work and did a tile job and a cabinet install wearing it, with no problems at all. No droopy drawers.
Finally, the constant ache in my lower back has gone away. Until it was pointed out by someone here at WT (can't remember who), I never realized that my instructor belt might be causing my lower back pain. I just thought it was my normal upper neck and back pain spreading down. Getting rid of that dull ache has been the biggest benefit to switching to the UFB so far.
So thanks Dan-O and Gabe. You did great on this design. It's an ideal belt for CCW.
