    The StickyHolsters are a totally different material than the Remora, and after trying them with mock guns at the booth, I like the feel and waistband holding power of the StickyHolster over the Remora. I didn't expect to!

    I found this thread when searching for "Remora versus Sticky Holster" on Google, so thought I'd weigh in.
    I have gone to using Sticky Holsters (since my original post above) and I like how thin they are and yet hold well and are comfortable.

A friend of mine had the Remora and could not wear it any more he got rash from the material. He saw mine and bought a Sticky Hoslter. So I would highly recommend the Srticky Holsters

    I'm considering going Sticky, too. Remora never returned my contact inquiry via website and i got an annoying call back message when calling during advertised business hours. Not a big deal but stuff like that just annoys me.

    The only thing holding me back is i don't believe the Sticky comes with a combat cut option.


    EDIT: at second glance the Sticky seems pretty low cut, and they accept paypal on Ebay, so Sticky it is!

    remora vs. stickyholster

    I use Stickys ALOT. I also used to use Remoras. But, I had problems with two different Remoras with the stitching and called to ask about proper procedure about sending it back. Was told it was my fault and I obliviously wasn't using the product correctly or didn't do the proper research for correct model holster. Oh which they verified I had the correct model. At that point I COMPLETELY gave up on them and I also have no problem telling others too. Wish I could have talked to this wonderful customer service versed person others talk of.

    PS I hit send before I finished. Stupid I phone so I had to edit.

    Excuse the poor pic quality from the IPhone. But I just stood up to take this. The profile is awesome and grip is solid of first grab as you can see.

    Got a prompt response from Sticky regarding whether the model LG-6 long or LG-6 short was the best option for my XD-40 Service...

    "The LG6-L will give you more coverage to the rear sight area, this will be more comfortable should you be wearing this forward of the hips. If you are wearing rear of the hips the LG6-S will be a more low profile fit."

    Since i tend to wear rear of the hips and prefer the lower profile, the short model is the clear choice for me. Will be placing my order as soon as i get back home to my personal PC.

    Which has a thinner profile?

    I've heard that the remora is kinda bulky and the sticky holster was thinner. Not sure if this is true. Anyone have both and could clarify. Thanks

    I used to run a Remora appendix carry with a G17.

    Okay for a quick trip to the store, but if you live fire train draw and presentation, it's a pain to safely reholster on a repeated basis. That eliminates it as an EDC option for me, because I believe one should carry what one trains with and vice verses...

    A quality kydex or leather holster has much better retention than a Remora, and are much safer to train with as well.

    I agree... you have to use the holster that best fits your activity and what you're wearing on a particular day or outing.
