Cole Robison of South Carolina says his EDC is “still a work in progress.” His daily carry includes a Springfield XD-S, a YETI Rambler, and a Leatherman Wave. Cole packs his single-stack XDS in an Alien Gear Shapeshift 4.0 IWB holster. The Shapeshift is a hybrid holster design and is adjustable for height, cant, and […]
I’ve reviewed a handful of holsters here on TTAG, dabbling in many more that have yet to be mentioned. And to be honest, I feel somewhat remiss for not bringing this one to you sooner. When I started using Ultimate Holsters gear eighteen months ago it quickly became – and still remains – the carry […]
If you own a Jeep Wrangler you know there aren’t many places to stash a handgun. The glove compartment will hold what laughably passes for an owner’s manual nowadays, but not much more. The compartments in the console could hold a medium-sized gun and a magazine or two, but it wouldn’t be very convenient to get to […]
K Rounds, located just outside of Seattle, is a purveyor of high-quality, American-made Kydex holster solutions and has slowly been entering the public soft goods market. They’re known for the use of thicker Kydex in their products than most, as well as their detailed attention to “finishing”. They also work with customers to create one-off […]

At the time, the market’s general interest in the […]
You’re looking at my new EDC holster, an “IWB w/ Adjustable Belt Clip” from Cook’s Holsters. I picked up the Beretta Nano version for testing in July and liked it so much that I couldn’t live without buying another one for my Taurus TCP. These things are beautifully simple, flawlessly finished, and add almost nothing to […]
Tommy Theis runs Arkansas-based Theis Holsters. He hand-makes every holster, mag holster, and belt that comes out of the shop, and test draws from each holster to ensure proper fitment. I really like single-clip, hybrid holsters, and thought I’d try one from Theis — their EZ-Clip — for my H&K P7 . . .
