I found this review of the Sticky: Gear Review: Sticky Holsters | The Truth About Guns
"...Mike Christoff, Sticky’s owner and the brains behind their designs, is a Remora alum. To hear him tell it, he had a better idea for a tackier (in a good way) holster. When Remora nixed his idea, he struck out on his own."
The review is mostly about Sticky. I can't respond to the author's opinion that "[t]he Sticky holsters stay in place more comfortably and effectively over a full day of IWB (Inside-the-WaistBand) carry, even with something as humongous as a full-size 1911. I occasionally catch myself pushing a Remora back down. That just doesn’t happen with a Sticky."
I carry my Glock 30 in a Remora and haven't had an issue with having to "push" the Remora back down. I'm pretty active so when I work out, I switch to a belly band under my sweatpants. I wouldn't carry using the Remora unless I am wearing pants with a belt. I saw an ad the other day for a Sticky and was thinking of trying it out.

I think, therefore I am armed.

I have both for my G19 and 2 Remoras(RFT and the one with the clip) for my G26. I prefer the RFT version of the Remora as it allows for re-holstering with without taking the holster off and then putting it back like the Sticky recommends. They are both very comfortable as you can adjust to any cant angle or depth of concealment.
I have both for my LCR. The sticky is thinner and seems to be a different material the texture feels different. Both do the job. The sticky has a strap thing as well if you wish to use the same holster for able carry if that is of interest
just 'bout the action boss...
For me, the reinforced opening at the top of the holster makes the difference.
In jeans with a belt the Sticky does fine. In drawstring shorts it's not that great. The gun shifts around too much, and a few times fell out of my shorts. I really like it as a bedside holster. If something should wake me, where i have to grab for my gun. i would rather take that second getting it out of the holster, rather than grabbing half asleep and maybe having an accident.

LOVE my Sticky holster! I carry appendix most of the time and this holster does its job well! Stays where it's supposed to with minimal shifting. A+
