    Economy Priced Carry Rig from High Noon

    "The Economy, The Economy!"

    You read about it and hear it in on the radio and news channels, but how does it affect your holster purchases?

    A few years ago. High Noon Holsters in Florida, came out with a synthetic alternative to
    both leather and horsehide holsters and accessories.

    I had a very positive 2 week trail period in which I tested out their then new UNDER ARMOR should rig.
    A Miami Vice type shoulder holster and double mag pouch made out of the sleek and good looking
    laminated material.

    Made to accept all Glock models, it was also a good fit for all of the CZs in my
    armory, and large Witness 10MM, along with my two Glocks.

    Speed up to present day, and we can take a look at the rig that I've been testing out in the past few weeks.

    Namely, a complete gun rig that won't break the bank like most traditional holsters holsters from a reputable
    company will do. Also, a holster and other gun gear that doesn't take a month longer to arrive.

    ALL of the items in this Review are In Stock Items and they ship it out very fast!



    1.

    The SKIN DEEP belt holster.



    Made out of the same material as my shoulder rig.

    This holster features snaps that allow you to easily take place it on or take it off your belt.



    I really like this concept and also the fact that the SKIN DEEP (like most SKIN products) allows
    for other handguns such as my S&W M&P Compact.



    My RAMI is a good fit and a joy to carry in this holster, too.


    I can't say much about this holster, except that it is made to the high standards that one can expect from High Noon, and that
    in my opinion. You are getting a better holster than your black plastic holster.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.

    The SECOND SKIN gunbelt.

    This belt is lighter than my wal-mart special leather belt, but has no problem with giving good support to the HN
    holster and mag pouch.



    A basic black 1 1/2 inch belt with black stitching and a sharp looking nickel plated buckle

    Due to High Noon's website instructions for ordering a correctly sized belt.
    This fits me perfectly and I'm quite content with it. Know that it doesn't cut into you as some stiffer belts would do.
    I give this belt a big Thumbs Up!.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3.

    DOUBLE SKIN Magazine Pouch. For double stack 9mm/40 and .357 SIG magazines.

    A nice way to carry two mags,





    or if you wish..a tactical light.



    As with the SKIN DEEP holster..
    I do like the snap system where you can take the mag pouch off the belt quickly.


    This carry rig might not be for everyone. Some of you like leather or prefer kydex.

    That is fine with me.

    However, my last weeks of wearing this rig have been very good. Holster retention of both
    my RAMI and M&P Compact has been positive.







    I have no complaints about this
    rig at all.

    I'm planning on using this throughout the winter months, and expect no surprises.

    So, if you are looking for something economical to carry your favorite pistol in, or just something new and different.

    That second skin material looks good for economical holsters and I like that the belt is thin and looks flexible along it's length, but I'm skeptical that it's stiff enough vertically to be a good gun belt, especially at only one layer.

    As far as the holster goes it looks pretty good. Good from the standpoint of someone having a CCW but only carrying sometimes and not even wanting to buy a more expensive and much nicer holster. It looks better than the generic nylon stuff you find around town too. I help out at a local gun shop and the #1 question ppl have is "what holster should I get". I could recommend them to get the Crossbreed Supertuck off the rack at the store, a custom leather masterpiece, or something from Raven Concealment or Comp-Tac for their Glock but they see $60+ and their eyes bug out lol. It gets hard for some people to justify all that cost when they are not carrying daily so I do definitely see a benefit of these holsters for those types of people. I will keep these in mind for people to look at.

    Yeah, I'm thinking of the shoulder holster for carry around the home when I'm in sweat pants. No need to spend huge amounts of money on that.

    I've been wearing a skin deep for a few months. It's a good holster and is holding up well.

    I have a belt slide in the same material from High Noon. It works very well although I like the Hume JIT just a little bit better.

    Anyone else have the belt made with this material? How does it perform in that role?

    Everyone has their own tastes...I prefer 'boned' quality leather for retention and comfort...OMO!

    Tried their synthetic stuff, not to my liking. Prefer REAL leather.

    Do you have pics with the shoulder holster on so we can see how it rides?

    I use the same shoulder rig for work, I carry a Beretta Cougar in it. I like it, it's easy to clean, doesn't bleed, supports the gun securely and balances well.

    I also have a Skin Guard that I use off-duty with my Kahr CW9. Again, well made, sturdy, utilitarian holster that holds the gun securely but allows for a fast, smooth draw.

    Also, their customer service is second to none.

    Here's some pics of my shoulder rig, sorry I'm not more photogenic!

    I also like leather but, I wouldn't automatically discount any product simply because it was constructed from a synthetic material.

    I am open minded toward new and innovative man-made materials.

    After all some of the most popular firearms in the world are mostly made from synthetic polymers and they seem to work just fine.
