Product Description

SHTF Gear ACE (Always Combat Effective) holsters provide the perfect combination of comfort and rapid deployment for concealed carry. That's because each of our holsters is precision molded for your specific gun and built by hand. The new ACE-1 Gen 2 holster includes our proprietary Comfort Curve: a unique feature developed over months of testing that provides superior comfort. This is achieved by molding the Kydex so that it creates a curve in the back of the holster. This curve allows the holster to fit the body more closely, increasing comfort and bringing the grip closer to the body for better concealment.

Other new features of the ACE-1 Gen 2 include user-adjustable retention for greater reliability, thicker Kydex for maximum durability, increased Kydex coverage for a more secure fit, higher density leather for improved wear, and a flared opening for easier holstering. While this second generation holster offers several design changes, it maintains all of the unique features that made the original ACE-1 a leading hybrid holster: durable Kevlar stitching, precision-formed Kydex, premium American leather, beveled edges, adjustable carry height and cant, sweat guard cut for a full grip, and availability for over 200 different handguns.

Based out of northern Utah, SHTF Gear produces American-made equipment to support those that live ready to defend family, community, and self. SHTF Gear started in 2010 and is a leading manufacturer of hybrid holsters.

This holster works great with my S & W Shield 9 mm. It does take a little more time to put on and find that spot that feels comfortable, but once you do, it will stay in place and your pistol will draw perfectly. I hope this helps!

I've been using mine now for around three months. The Kydex is sturdy. The leather is nice and thick and of better quality then the other cowhide I've seen used on other brands. The kevlar stitching used to attach the mold to the leather holster seems sturdy and may be more of a gimmick than anything, but I'm sure it will last a long time. The clips are attached to the leather pad by rubber grommets and small screws. I haven't noticed the screws or any discomfort as the backing is flush. The clips are perfectly secure and not too secure as to be a pain to remove the holster from the pants when you need to. There are additional holes placed into the holster to allow for adjustment or canter if one would chose to do this.

The holster is quality. I will probably buy SHTF gear again for any other conceal carry weapon i get in the future.

The leather is very high quality and is the right thickness to form quickly to the individual and wear very durably. The holster adjusts for depth and angle so your pistol fits exactly where you want it. The holster holds the pistol securely, I have never had it come out on its own and I carry everyday and work a construction job. The pistol is easy to draw and the holster stays in place. It is very safe, there is no way the trigger can be accessed when it is in the holster. This holster is the perfect balance of all the best construction, materials and features.

Yes, it's a bit pricier than Alien Gear. It makes up for it with better fit and finish, and a faster turnaround time from ordering to getting it to your door. This is easily the best holster (and most comfortable) I've ever owned. I like that I can tuck in dress shirts without revealing that I'm carrying, and I'm not raring to remove the holster the moment I get home from work out of discomfort.
With other holsters I was constantly checking to see if I was printing, this holster has never given me a second worry in that regard.

My only two quibbles would be that for the first two weeks, I was constantly adjusting retention as the holster broke in. Like, a lot. Pretty much every day I had to tighten or swap out retention screws and washers. The other thing that irked me was that about 3 weeks into wearing it, the clips' screws suddenly seemed to completely fail at staying tight. They were constantly working loose. A dab of locktite fixed the issue, but seriously. They were fine for several weeks, and then one day BOOM... they just couldn't quit working themselves loose.

Doesn't seem to be "breaking in" very quickly; not sure it ever will. Leather quality seems "iffy" Belt clips are difficult.

Outstanding product, exceptional craftsmanship. The leather is finished very nicely, all edges have been chamfered to give it a very clean and refined look. The kydex is thick, I'm not exactly sure on the exact specifications, but it seems to be the .08 or thicker kydex; the good stuff. The steel belt clips hold well and retain the belt nicely. Overall, I couldn't have purchased a better hybrid IWB holster. Fantastic product!

Great holster. Much more comfortable than the previous all kydex varieties I tried. The adjustable retention is nice, but i haven't needed to use it, everything fit right out of the box. Mine required a bit of locktite on the belt clips to keep the belt clip screws from coming loose. For a 3-4 o'clock position holster this is a great product. Good retention, high quality leather and finishing is professional.

This holster was comfortable right out of the box, and can be worn all day. I like the adjustments for height and retention, and the metal belt clips keep the holster very secure while allowing you to tuck your shirt in. I adjusted mine for a deeper carry, and it is concealed very well even with cargo shorts and a t-shirt. Great quality product, I'll look to purchase a SHTF holster again in the future.
