    Remora with or without the sweat shield??

    I am going to purchase a Remora IWB for summer and my LCP. I can't decide between with or without the sweat shield. What do you think?

    I have an RFT model with the sweatshield for semi-autos with a 4" barrel. With the sweatshield, there was a triangular point at the top of the holster that caused printing and also hindered drawing because the sights on certain guns would get hung up, so I modified mine by cutting it and then melting the edges back together. So now I've got one that fits perfectly, holds in place like glue, and is easy to draw and re-holster.

    I'm not going to be much help, because all I can really tell you is I personally hate to have my gun touching my skin. So for me, the sweatshield is totally worth it, even if I have to modify it..

    I've got three indifferent sizes. I use the ones without the sweat shiled all the time; either IWB or in my pocket. I almost never use the sweat shield one. It is too large and cumbersome; the others work so well.

    Without. I don't like guns touching my skin. But the Remora I don't like touching my skin more. It grips. I always wear a tank top so the holster doesn't tounch anyways. The shield adds bulk imo. Not much but I prefer without. I like the reinforced one best. Easy to get to the pistol. JME

    With the shield and the reinforced top.

    My EDC holster is the RFT w/SS. I have one without the SS but like it with better. I also wear a tank top t-shirt under.

    I've got a SS for my G27. I like it now, but I imagine during the TX summers that I will appreciate it more.
