    Remora irritating skin

    I wear my (modified) Remora holster against my skin and I'm very happy with it.

    BUT...the rubbery dots have irritated the crap out of my skin. It's red, flakey, scratchey and on it's way to being a problem.

    So I'm taking a few days off from carrying because it's the only complete concealment holster (no clips to show) and I can't be spotted due to where I work (legal but lots of objection I'm sure).

    Anyone else finding significant skin irritaton?

    No issues here. Have you tried it with a t-shirt between you and your holster?

    Pictures or it didn't happen!!!


    Just kidding. Seriously, I believe you. Don't prove it.

    It's called Remora Rash.

    Wash the remora with soap and water. Or better yet, wear a t-shirt between the the synthetic grippy surface and your skin.

    Yes - wash the holster. You can wash it every day if needed. Be sure to rinse and dry and then also let air dry. Use liquid castile soap with tea tree oil. Do not soak the holster......just use minimum water to do the surface, but be sure to rinse a couple of times.

    Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic so will help keep "germs" from growing on the surface of the holster.

    If this doesn't work, it is possible that you are allergic to the rubberized holster material. Personally, my Remora doesn't stay in place too well if it is not next to my skin, but Gramps wears his over a tee shirt without much problem.

    Hope this helps somewhat.

    I never experienced this with my Remora's but I agree with giving it a wash and wearing an undershirt. I would also suggest you take a look at the Telor Tactical Comfort Air Bodyband. I have one for a BG380 and also one for my S&W 642 J frame. They work great and are by far the most comfortable method of carry I have found.

    I'm gonna get one.

    You're going to love it. It will not irritate your skin whatsoever. Tell Mr. Leverett (The Owner) that Chris from Wayne, MI sent you. Who knows he may even throw you a discount.
