I would like to share with you my Urban Carry Revo IWB Holster review, and I look forward to answering any questions you have!
I was 55 pounds overweight for many years, and always found using Inside the WaistBand (IWB) holsters to be very uncomfortable. My “dunlap” rubbed on the gun and the holster dug into my body. Part of this was my girth, and part was that I had never tried an IWB holster that had the angle I wanted and also felt comfortable.
The Urban Carry Revo IWB holster solved my problem!
IWB holsters seem to be the best way to carry handguns, and appendix is a great place if one’s body type allows it. My 35 pound fat-loss over the last year has finally allowed IWB appendix carry! Depending on the cant of the handgun, it can still be very uncomfortable. This discomfort can be relieved momentarily by shifting the gun to a more comfortable cant, however it always goes back into the uncomfortable position in a few seconds. If only the cant / angle could be adjusted and would stay in place exactly where I want it life would be more comfortable!
Discomfort is the prevailing reason most of us do not carry as frequently as we should. That is the holster industry’s challenge, to invent a comfortable solution that meets as many of these functionality criterion as possible:
- Concealable, like seriously
- Accessible real fast-like
- Secure when moving dynamically like in a fisticuffs brawl
These three criterion are necessary to address before we move to comfort.
Is the Urban Carry Revo IWB Holster Concealable?
Yes. This holster, like most appendix carry holsters, is indeed concealable. While I give Revo a check-mark for this one, I am not dancing in the streets, this is kinda the nature of appendix carry. Having said this, the angle at with the back of a pistol’s slide and the end of the magazine distend from the body is a factor. Revo does a good job keeping these tale tale signs from showing.
Is the Urban Carry Revo IWB Holster Accessible?
Yes. This holster allows for a fast draw, well as fast as this tacti-gramp can draw. The factor mentioned above again comes into play. The more the pistol is apart from the body the easier it is to get a grip. Unfortunately, this also means the pistol prints (shows) more. The Revo IWB finds a good middle ground.
Is the Urban Carry Revo IWB Holster Secure?
Yes. I am a “probability” kind of guy. The CCW individual is much more likely to be in a physical altercation that involves pushing, punching and wrestling that an actual gunfight. If my gun falls out of the holster and clanks onto the floor, my opponent might be a bit alarmed and what could have been a macho fisticuffs thing could be escalated to a deadly situation.
Back when I was a cop, I used holsters with thumb break snaps, and loved the system. Now, I have come to appreciate the plastic (yeah, I know, Kydex) holsters like Bladetech for OWB holsters because my pistol “snaps” into place and is held relatively securely. With the Revo, the angle and tight fit (custom ordered for my gun) I could wrestle around for a good while and the gun and holster would stay in place.
