    Raven Concealment Systems??

    This post goes out to all of you fellas who own a Raven Concealment holster. My main question is how comfortable are the things? They sure don't look too comfortable, but it seems that i've seen a few posts over the past month that compare their comfort to a crossbreed (which I own) or an MTAC. Would you agree with this?
    I'm hoping to acquire a XD Subcompact soon and have been trying to match a hoster to it to make a more concealable rig than my full-size SR9 and crossbreed combo. If these things are as comfortable as my crossbreed then i believe that I will have to get one (should be a less restrictive draw since it doesn't have the leather backing thats present on the crossbreed, agreed?). All pictures of your rigs will be greatly appreciated!

    So how 'bout those Raven holsters? likes/dislikes?



    Thanks in advance for all inputs/opinions.

    I have one for my P228 and one for my P220. Extremely light and comfortable and provide excellent concealment. When I really want to conceal either of those pistols with no chance of printing, my Raven is my "go to" holster.

    Before working with them on their Appendix Carry Rig I used the Phantom and wrote this review-

    Fantastic holster. It's easily interchangable as an IWB or OWB setup. Very form fitting, very secure for level 1 rig. I also got the 2 mag carrier. I ordered another holster molded for condition 1 and my TLR-2 but had to send it back b/c it was made for cond 2 (grrrrr). Their customer service is pretty good so far.

    I've tried a couple that other people had and found them to be very comfortable. Definitely what I would buy if I was going to go with a kydex rig.

    I am definitely a leather snob and Raven Concealment is the only Kydex rig I will own.

    I like mine for my G19. comfortable because it's not a flat piece of kydex, it's formed slightly to a contour. It also is wide at the bottom so it doesn't flop and it doesn't push up when you sit down.

    I can only describe as feeling like you are concealing the pistol by wrapping a wide ace bandage around it.

    Just buy one... they're great. But holsters are always such a personal thing.

    My guess is they typically have only about 12 degrees of cant. Absolutely perfect for me on a striker fired pistol, but some folks like the super duper 25 degree cant holsters.

    Got my new holster yesterday. The HK is already borderline too big to carry IWB, so if I clip on the TLR-2 and carry, it'll definitely be OWB.

    Bone, you know I ordered this for me, and I have the HK45 F, and I plan on wearing it IWB. It's too big???

    I think it matters on the body size of the person. Me, I am 6'2", 270lbs, and with my full size baby eagle .45 I don't usually show a print of the pistol.

    I hope it's not too big, but I will find out soon ........ t-minus 25 days?

    Are you talking about with a tactical light or without? I'm 6'2, 215 and without the light, the large-ish grip prints pretty badly depending on what I'm wearing. I don't think that's any fault of the holster itself more so than the fullsize frame of the gun. With your size and a loose cover, I think you'll be fine.

    With the light, it would be just too darn bulky to stick inside the waist without going a few pant sizes up.


    Oh, wait, I have a pic I posted on another thread:

    Without the light, I have a beer belly too.. lol So it might help me hide the print of the pistol..

    Bone, I think I have the wrong IWB Over-Hooks They don't ride like yours in your pictures... despite my bigger gut.

    Did I mount my hooks on wrong.. you have mounting holes closer to the top. Mine mount closer to the bottom of the hooks.
