I don't get the attraction
Apparently you've never tried one, Cheap, Very comfortable, more versatile than a clip holster, doesn't move. Can't really beat them as long as your carrying an appropriate ccw gun.
I feel the same way about hybrids and AIWBs.

I feel the same way about the Kardashians.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
I didn't understand at first either. I wanted a holster that I could put a little deeper in for better concealment and I figured for about $25 it was worth a shot.
Since the first purchase I have bought two more for other guns. They are great little holsters

To me it's a quick Mexican carry to the mailbox and back and convenient crossdraw carry on long driving trips. Nothing more.Why All The Preoccupation With The Remora Holster?
No preoccupation here just "a time to every purpose under heaven".
You can stick it in your sweatpants, go jogging, throw in your pocket, wear it with jeans, with a little skill you can even tuck in around it. It is just super versatile and comfortable, best of all its cheap.
The Remora Holster works well for many but not for all and I am one that it does not meet my carry requirements.

If it can hold a 30 oz k-frame snubbie in place securely, I would be interested. I always hear how good they are with lighter guns.........
I will rarely post, but will read (and hopefully learn) a lot
i think because it's a new concept in IWB carry that seems to work for most folks (not chuckusaret, though), i.e. IWB carry with no physical attachment between holster and pants/belt.
one of the problems with IWB is that with traditional holsters it can be hard to place the holster exactly where you want it. the Remora makes it possible to position the holster where it is most comfortable for you (within reason, i'd guess).
it also allows the user to place the gun in different carry positions, such as behind the hip, appendix carry, or cross-draw, all with the same holster.
it's cheap - $33 for mine.
i do need to use both hands to re-holster the gun after drawing it.
Given the proper belt retention these holsters will not move in action. The service is real quick. They are very comfortable and inexpensive. The customer service is great, You will be satisfied.
My husband isnt as crazy about his for carrying his XD40, but I have 1 for all of my handguns. I am able to use it in multiple positions depending on the outfit I am wearing, including elastic waists with no belt. It holds the gun in a better position against me than the other IWB holsters Ive tried, and have had no issues with movement. It is also very comfortable for me, probably due to the versatility. If you are concerned about needing to reholster 1 handed, they do make a version that is stiffer & designed for that, for me, not a concern. When practicing it is not an issue to reholster 2 handed. They arent for everyone, but they do have unique features not available in other holsters.
