    S&W 642, whats a good Ankle Holster??

    Wanting some feedback and recommendations for a good and comfortable Ankle Holster? Would be carried under rough work conditions and possibly needs to withstand short burst of running.

    I just purchased my 642 yesterday and ready to verify its handling/operation to familiarize myself with it.

    Was planning on getting x2 HKS speed-loaders, what would be a good recommendation for a double holder holster.

    As I mentioned in another thread, I've had both the Alessi Ankle Holster and the Galco Ankle Glove. Hands down Alessi is the best but pretty hard to get a hold of these days. The Galco is very good and comfortable. The Galco can go over the boot's top (they make an extension) or you can wear it high above the boot.

    +1 on Thumper's pick.

    Same here, Alessi Ankle Rig. Can't get any better than this.

    From what I have read before posting, I had narrowed my findings to either a Alessi Ankle Holster or a Renegade. But I think I have made up my mind to go with Alessi. But I ran into one problem...can anyone tell me where I can get one, thats not "sold out" or "not taking any orders." I've looked at the sponsored sites here, but could not find anyone and same with the web...

    The Alessi is nice, but its nearly twice the price of the Renegade Cozy Partner. Also, you'll have the Renegade in a week or less. Its not as "pretty" as the Alessi, but for my money its one of the best ankle holsters out there. Call them up in Phoenix. Great people and you'll have it quick.

    Another vote for Renegade. Very comfortable and secure with a 642.

    Sir, I apologize but sometimes I forget that when advising the best of the best ankle rig, I would immediately advise, Alessi and forget that actually acquiring one is very difficult if not impossible. With that said, just like most members here, the Renegade may be the the better choice. Here's why:

    1. Ready available - I can give you the wesite to order and it will be in your mailbox in less than 5 days.

    2. Cost - Just like what one member has already stated, it's half the cost compared to the Alessi.

    3. Comfortable - It's very comfortable compared to the other ankle holsters I've tried (eg. Kramer, Galco, Uncle Mike). And plus, you never know, the Renagade could possibly fit you better than the rest. You'll never know until you try it.

    Renagade is my 2nd choice other than Alessi. Try it, you'll like it!





    Give me minute and I'll post a picture of the back of the rig


    Updates: Dang it, I mispelled Renagade! Suppose to be RENEGADE. I'll need to fix it.


    Here's the address if you decide to go with the Renegade.

    As promised, here's the back view:

    I'd go with Renegade.

    Oh, wait....I've already given my 2 cents.

    I've Sparks VM2's/Alessi CQC-S's and such for every sidearm I own, but for ankle doody, my nod goes always to the Renegade.

    It works "that good" and is so comfortable for all day/everyday ankle carry. They should charge twice as much for these things......

    Like I said, Alessi is pretty hard to come by... no, I don't know where to get one short of ordering one from Alessi and waiting. I wish I did as I need one too!

    GMS Tactical is a retailer. Renegade Holsters doesn't have a website at all. They are based in Phoenix, AZ and supply a lot of the LEO in that area. Here is their contact info. I just called and had mine in about a week. They accept CC's, etc.
