    Ordered one of these a few weeks back. Wanted an option that didnt invlolve a belt clip.
    Kinda of a shot-in-the-dark. I'll post up a quick review when I've had a chance to run it.

    I basically offer the same warranty. After researching I also use the same materials they do as well

    So you are saying if I buy a holster from you and dont like it, you will refund my money and I get to keep the holster? Thats what I was referring to.
    However, if a member on this forum is making and selling a product I feel the right thing is to give them a shot. Meaning, if I was buying I would order one from you before ordering from someone else.

    I was just showing you there warranty and I see nothing about you getting your money back and keeping the holster. :)

    If you need your holster fixed, I will fix it as long as you were the original buyer

    I have a 30 day money back guarantee and after that it is a 15% restocking fee

    Now that is a very impressive warranty.

    Ok y'all anyone whose interested in a different iwb setup as I mentioned above in post #23 here we go with a quick review.
    Background:
    I've been interested in and owned handguns for only 8 years now and before that very occasional sporadic experience.
    I'm VERY NEW to ccw, and have only had my permit 9 months.
    I like running, hiking mountain/trail/road cycling (the original issue that got me thinking about carrying a lil something for protection in remote areas).
    I work as a healthcare provider and have had a few encounters with some perhaps chemically dependent clientele that became confrontational (nothing too serious) when i had refused certain requests for certain substances that i deemed inappropriate, and the possibility of a situation with very negative disparity of force got me considering daily carry.
    I'd tried a few different belt-dependent rigs with mixed results but for professional dress occasions and many recreational arenas I was never comfortable. S
    Stumbled onto Tactipac and decided to try one.

    Fusionpac iwb experience thus far:
    I've had it for 2 weeks now.
    I've worn it:
    Trail riding
    3-8 mile runs
    3 hour car rides
    Outdoor conditions from 35 to 70 degrees F
    Manual labor outside doing trail maintenance and building with climbing, squatting, kneeling, shoveling, raking and hiking up and down steep slopes.
    Cutting, splitting and loading firewood.
    At work obviously:)
    At church, I'm Catholic so lots of up and down lol;)

    Ok now for some pics of the rig and wearing it with a relatively snug fitting cool weather exercise garment. Damn I sound ghey.
    Impressions to follow pics:

    So pics show the strap over my briefs. Right hip draw with it positioned slightly posterior (rearward). The opposite hip strap is routed just beneath my iliac crest (upper hip bone) to help prevent sliding upward.
    That's my pager clip in right pocket btw and crappy pics are iPhone manned by my 11 yo daughter who thinks I am soooooo weird now:)

    Ok impressions on next post since this far has been iPhone/photobucket posting and my neck is killing me.

    Make your own. I make my own and for my family. IWB is actually VERY easy to make. You could make several holsters with that $70. A few LEO friends of mine also use my holsters when off duty or under cover

    Tacitpac fusion pac impressions:

    Basically I love it and its by far the best setup for me that I've tried.

    Cons:
    *It will ride up and climb higher along the torso with repeated up and down kneeling, squatting and in and out of automobiles. It is rather easy to push down through your cover garment discreetly however.
    *If you wear the strap against skin the edges of the velcro strap can be mildly irritating.
    *Also, the spare mag holder is not ideally placed and the top of the mag extends up higher than the shield and digs in a bit while sitting. Minor issue and I may contact Tactipac regarding this.

    Pros:
    *Handles sweat exceptionally well and I've tested this characteristic extensively over and over and weapon has little to no moisture on it.
    *Very comfortable
    *No clip to figure out how to tuck a dress shirt around
    *No belt needed
    *Excellent weapon retention
    *Stability, doesn't bounce AT ALL with running and jumping (albeit with a very lightwt. single stack)

    I switched out the microclips with Quikclips, gives it a bit more stability.

    Hey guys a few really dumb questions but I'm completely new to ccw. The iwb it puts the gun on the inside of your waste band making your pants fit tighter? I heard that leather holds in moisture making your gun rust overtime. I have a black hawk that I really like. the locking feature of it is very nice but it goes on my belt causing it to stick out so far it's pretty hard to conceal in just jeans and a t shift unless I wear a super huge shirt that gods down to my butt. Another thing is in the taco my gun sits right where I buckle my seat belt and its not comfortable at all. Any input would be great. A few very nice holsters here but I would love to try them out. Any major chains carry some of these holsters ? Sorry about the noob questions

    Another thing to add. With iwb do you have to wear a undershirt with them?

    What weapon are you concealing Matt? Sounds like maybe if you're a smaller body you may need a slimmer gun.
    My rig from above can be worn against skin or over an undershirt and same with leather.
