Lightbulb Remora/Stick Holsters Vs Kydex for LCR AIWB

Hi all,

I'm getting a LCR 327 soon and the holster hunt has begun. I've already ordered a mika pocket holster but am now thinking about a aiwb option. I'm a slim guy and with a very short overall length the LCR should be comfortable to carry AIWB.

Main two options are Remora's "2-in-1" which has a removable swivel clip. This seems like a versatile option since I can use it for pocket carry, IWB, or AIWB. BUT I'm worried the flimsy material (compared to kydex) will flex too much when sitting and moving around so it won't protect me as well from the grip or frame of the gun. I always wear an undershirt or I-shirt so it won't be against skin but still. Comfort is a priority.

In the other corner is a Kydex AIWB holster like Alabama Holster's "Off Side." It's more expensive and I've heard this company takes months to ship your product and has bad CS. In terms of carry though it seems a solid product and offers the benefits of kydex, whatever those are.

I'm leaning towards trying Remora's first since it's cheaper and I can always return it. I don't know if Alabama Holsters still has a bad CS reputation.

Thoughts on Remora's (or Sticky Holster's) material vs. a more standard kydex holster carrying the LCR AIWB?

Thanks for reading.

Brass

All I can tell you is that I have several Remora holsters, and they are well made and comfortable, although I don't carry on a daily basis. You can put the gun on or take it off in a jiffy, amd the holster itself makes a handy storage pouch if you have to take it off to go into a building or something.

Ditto what scattershot said. I have a Remora for each of my handguns (currently eight) and several for guns I no longer own. I also have at least one other holster (usually several) for each. I don't carry my S&W J frame very often, but when I do, I usually carry it AIWB in a SoCo Kydex. It's the thinnest profile holster for a snubby I've found.
