It has a lot of adjustment and it holds the weapon secure.
Robin J McRae
All three of these guns can be concealed under just a loose fitting, untucked button-up shirt!
Bob H.
Fourth, the weapon retention snap does not facilitate a quick draw like a thumb break.

Snaps are a little stiff at first, but by the time I'd had the rig off and on enough times to get the adjustments just right I'd mastered the snaps.Holds my long barrel .357 securely and wont detach it's self from my belt. I have other systems for day to day, but for Northwest camping, the Sidekick keeps my woods gun dry under my parka with the added benefit of suspenders. I really like this feature as I always have overloaded pockets when I'm camping, takes the weight of my waist.

Hand Orientation: Right HandSize Name: Size 3
I'm 6'2", weight 230lbs with a 48" chest. I have 3 of these holsters for 3 different handguns. 1) a 6.5" S&W 629 (Size 3), 2) Ruger 4" GP100 (Size 2) and, 3) 1911 Colt Gov't full size (Size 5). All three of these guns can be concealed under just a loose fitting, untucked button-up shirt! However, I don't carry the 629, I bought that sidekick about 20 years ago, and used it for deer hunting. Nonetheless, I can still conceal that big 629 cannon very easily if I wanted to!

My primary carry gun is the 4" GP100, which also has a set of oversized custom rosewood grips on it! My secondary is the 1911. Both guns are close to the same length, but the GP is a little wider, (but not much) due to the cylinder. Now I will admit, it takes some time to get these things adjusted right. But once you get it adjusted so the gun fits close to your body, with no "flopping" around... you're good to go! It can be frustrating, I know. But it's well worth the effort once you find that perfect adjustment. It took almost a solid week to get my GP adjusted the way I like it! A lot of trial and error involved. But it's worth it now!

The holster has tiedowns on both sides. The holster side has a heavy plastic flap that slips through the belt, and has a stiff snap. The off side has a strap with a snap. Once the holster is adjusted, and tiedowns are in place, there is no weight on your pants! It's all spread across your shoulders, and it's quite comfortable. Just hope you don't have to make an emergency run to the bathroom, then you might be in trouble! ha!

I've tried the IWB/OWB holsters for both of these guns (GP & 1911) and while they do work very well, they're just not very comfortable to me.

This is an extremely comfortable shoulder holster. I wear it all day and barely know it's there. A verticle shoulder holster is the only way to conceal a large firearm. My firearm is held securely, even whithout the retension strap. Don't be fooled by the price. You can't buy a better holster at any price, so why pay more?

The quality of this holster is good as Uncle Mikes typically is. But the design is poor. It doesn't seem to matter what I do to adjust it the self adjusting cross piece in the back always adjusts itself right up so that it digs into my neck! Very uncomfortable! Had to stop using it!

Light weight and easy to adjust can accommodate a range of pistols and can be easily modified have an extremely effective quick release for the retaining strap. Extra magazine pouch connects nicely and all is in good position for quick access. Once properly adjusted it is almost invisible and, very comfortable, and effective.

This holster seems excellent for carrying a second weapon when out hunting or even something out of the way for hikes, but for a concealed carry rig, eh...

It does fit quite well after a bit of adjustment and tinkering, but the retention strap makes it difficult to draw quickly (it runs a bit long and tends to get in the way of the draw for me).

The other issue I have is that the holster covers the trigger on the body side, but doesn't on the external face. This could just be my pistol, but is still a concern for daily (condition 1) carry. I plan on having a bit of material placed to complete a trigger guard, but until then it has to stay in the closet.

Overall, a decent holster, but needs some work to make it truly useful (and safe).

This is a good deal for the price. It will take some time to adjust the fit.
This was used to carry a Ruger Redhawk on the trail. It was comfortable & gave no irritation after a day of hiking.

The only thing I would improve is to make the holster angle adjustable & not so vertical.

The Holster works well for me. A reasonable price. The fabric hold up very well. I did have a little trouble getting the adjustment set up but once it was set, it was fine.
