    Had Remora and found I liked Sticky Holsters better simply because they are thinner and more comfortable against the skin. I don't like holsters with clips as I have a hard time getting them on and off. I can just slide my Sticky into place and I go. And, it actually helps me hold UP my pants instead of working against me like a clipped holster. It is also way easier to take off to use the restroom. So, I use a Sticky exclusively.

    - How much thinner is the Sticky Holster?

    Those of us who are thicker about the mid-section often find that a heavy gun belt, as is required for pretty much clip style IWB holster, can be downright uncomfortable for extended wear, especially when sitting / driving. I tried a Remora for my Sig P238 and there's simply no going back. It's extremely comfortable, completely stable (stays where you put it) and wonderfully flexible (can be worn in any IWB position with any amount of cant). I tried one for my 4" XD-40 and guess what.... Same results!
    I have complete faith in Remora holsters and simply would not be able to carry every day without one.

    I don't think it would work well for me an my heavier 1911 platform I carry, not to mention I don't like to cinch my belt so tight my feet turn purple. It may work for some, but not this guy.

    You might be surprised.. I can carry a 2 pound XD-40 inside drawstring sweatpants with no foot discoloration :)

    You do not have to cinch the belt any more than with any other IWB holster. I also wear mine with just a drawstring in gym shorts or sweat pants with no issues.

    I also prefer the Sticky, but because of the way it is cut rather than it being a lot thinner. With the sticky, I find it easier to get a proper grip on the gun when drawing.

    I am intrigued, since I jog/walk a mile each day and my current rig would make you laugh. I wear my belt over my t-shirt with my OWB holster, then pull up my sweat shorts (thus creating an "IWB") and an over shirt. I feel silly like that. Maybe I'll try one. Not that expensive are they>

    I don't like Remora holsters, don't consider them that reliable, and don't use anything that's not attached to the belt or something.
    That's my choice, and one I plan to stick with.

    - What wasn't reliable about it?

    accessbob, thanks for the pictures. Do you know if the RFT Remora has a thicker top than the normal one?

    Not all of us can unzip the fly and use a urinal

    When I first heard of clipless holsters, I wouldn't have considered trying one. However, I've read so many testimonials here over the last few months I do plan on getting one to try. Even if I just used it for kicking around the house, if it works as well as I've read, it'd be well worth it.

    I was skeptical of the Remora too, until I tried one. Like everything else, it has it's pros and cons... and like everything else, it has a failure rate higher than "0%".

    Overall, I like mine. Does that make me irresponsible? :)

    The normal Remora cut does interfere with getting a full grip when drawing. Remora also has an option on every holster called Artemis cut (ART) that gives a full grip on the draw. I ordered the first one out of ignorance and they allowed me to exchange it for an ART cut. Remora customer support is outstanding.
