alien gear holsters

has anyone had any experience with the IWB holsters made by Alien Gear out of Fort Smith,AR? I found them last night and they look similiar to the Theiss or crossbreed but only $30.

I just looked at their website and what I see is one company naming their competitors to slam them over & over. If their products are that wonderful they shouldn't have to do that. Good luck though and hope your holster works out.

Alien Gear

I ordered one of their holsters 5 days ago and am waiting for the e-mail letting me know of the shipment tracking. I did find that they are very similar to the Old Faithful Holsters. They also are from Ft Smith,Ark. I will let you know about my experiences with them.

I've had my Alien Gear IWB for 2 weeks now. I wear it everywhere I go and love it. The extra thickness of the leather allows it to mold to my carry position. It feels that comfortable that you really don't realize you are carrying. I would highly recommend this holster

I've had mine for several months now. Love it! Fits my SR40 perfectly and is really good quality. In fact, I'm adding another custom "shell" to fit for a new Ruger SR1911 CMDR that I'm getting for my birthday. Only $12.88 and gives me the chance to use the same holster for two different guns. I'm very happy with my AlienGear holster.

good to hear. i had just came across this site as I have a shield on order. I think I am going to give them a try.

It is odd they are almost identical to old faithful and come from the same town. I sent AG a message to see if they made an OWB as well. I'd order one for my dad.

The Alien Gear holster is comparable to the Crossbreed. I own and carry both. If I had known about the Alien Gear first I would never have ordered the Crossbreed.

I have carried my Glock 26 in the Alien Gear for around four weeks now and I believe it is every bit as good as or better than my much more expensive Crossbreed.

The Alien Gear holster is much easier to personalize than the Crossbreed. All components needed to customize the holster to your own carry style are included with thr purchase price.

My next holster will be an Alien Gear.

I've had one for a few months as well and have been really happy with it. It's super comfortable, good quality, and good price. I bought it with 3 different shells to carry each of my carry guns, and ordered a shell for my new G27 a couple days ago. I got a box full of holsters I tried that didn't particularly care for, and this one isnt going into that box. IMO for the price, quality, and versatility, and warranty it's really tough to beat this holster.

I've got one on order, but the tracking number they sent me shows it delivered in Arizona, and I still live in Colorado. I questioned what happened, this morning when I saw it was going to AZ and they have not replied (I just sent another E-mail asking what was happening).

We'll see.

I just hope it arrives in the next few days and I am as delighted as much as SHARK is.


12/5 Update:
As of 11:00 today, no reply from them.
Sent another E-mail including a screen shot of ALL information that I had. We'll see if that wakes them up.

Update on the update (still 12/5):
Received replies to two E-mails. One apologized for sending me the wrong information.
Holster arrived USPS, excellent condition.
Gun fit is very good, instructions are quite good, plenty of spare parts to adjust the "hold" on the holster.
I'm happy>

Thank you
