I use this holster for my Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack to carry a Ruger P95 pistol. It works exactly as advertised. Very secure hold, and I mean some super heavy duty velcro on this thing. It's adjustable so you can mold the holster around the trigger area of your pistol. Attach it to your pack, and you're good to go. Take a look at the pics I posted.

I tend to agree with the opinion that it seems a bit pricey for what you get, but that being said this Maxpedition holster accessory does do its job reasonably well. The hook portion sewn onto this holster does a solid job of attaching itself firmly to the field of loop sewn into the Jumbo Versipack's CCW compartment, and the quality of its material reinforcing and stitching is what I've come to expect from the company. Fact is, it even works great in my clone UTG Tactical Messenger Bag with its smaller strips of loop material.

It holds my H&K P30 and USP Compact securely, as well as my Sig P229 and Glock 19. It adjusts easily enough to even accommodate those times when I have my Streamlight laser/light combo attached to any one of these pistols, even the USP Compact with its added Picatinny rail adapter. I have little reason to doubt than any 'compact' (to my eyes, 'mid-sized' seems a more appropriate term) semi-auto will work fine with this holster accessory in any Jumbo Versipack.

I have three of these installed in different Maxpedition bags, and they work surprisingly well for retaining a loaded handgun in the concealed-carry pocket on all three bags, even at funny angles at which one would think that the gun would just fall out.

Some reviewers have expressed the opinion that a mere velcro-backed cross is not worth the asking price, imagining that they could make such a thing themselves for a dollar or two, but the truth is that they could not: the material is very heavy, the velcro is of very high quality, and the stitching is extensive and would require a substantial industrial sewing machine.

This is a "universal" holster, after all, so it does the job good enough for most firearms, but not as good as a holster dedicated to one particular firearm.

The material and quality of workmanship is very good, and the Velcro holds the holster in place tightly. I carry an XD-45 (5") in my Jumbo Versipack and it just barely fits. Because the Universal CCW holster doesn't have any active form of retention for the weapon, the snugness of my Jumbo's CCW pocket is what actually holds the firearm in place. Still, my XD remains in place and can be drawn easily, with practice. Being modular, the holster can be removed or repositioned to suit your needs, which is always nice.

For those wanting an even nicer (and more expensive) modular holster dedicated to a particular model of firearm, check out the Crossbreed Ohai.

The CCW Holster does an acceptable job of holding whatever you want secured within a velcro-equipped carrier. I use mine with a UTG Messenger Bag as well as with a 5.11 Tactical Vest. Although there are more expensive, and perhaps better, alternatives, the CCW Holster works well enough in everyday use. If you intend to jump out of aircraft or perform parkour expecting it to hang onto something your life may depend upon, look for a more robust alternative. The design is sound, but velcro has its limitations. If you just want something that will keep an item handy, this certainly works.

A great value for a price value below $15. However, it would be worth more to spend a couple of more bucks to improve on the ergonomics and finishing of the product. It is made with strong materials that will hold up over time. It does hold my pistols securely within any internal looped or hooked materials. My only beef is the long vertical strip has sharp corners. When pulling or placing the sidearm back into the holster, it is easy to get jabbed by these corners. I would suggest Maxpedition round off the corners and this would be a great holster and value.
The nice thing is this can also be used for holstering other items of different lengths. There is a limit to how small the diameter of the wrap is, so I don't believe this would do well with smaller items less then two inches.
Good value,
Did the job in a marketplace filled with cheap and poorly designed options.
Good value of under $15, if you pay more than $20, look for a different option.

I put this holster in my UTG pack and it works fine. It holds my XD9 (4 inch frame) easily and snugly. Velcro is nice and stitching is well done.

This is a great product for those that want to CC in a bag.

I got this on a whim for my malaga pack, just as a way to keep my xd compact from rattling in the bag. It seems to do a good enough job and is a simple design-just keep the handle of your firearm close to another edge for support - it'll work loose if you run or fall if it's just the slide or trigger guard in the holster. Since it's new, I don't know what it'll be like when it gets broken in. We'll see in a few months.

This is a great product that I use in my sitka. It holds my G21, and I dont have to worry about it floating around my bag. It's adjustable and gives a good solid hold.
