What is a Sticky Holster? Well, quite simply, it’s an IWB (in the waist band) holster that uses the compression from your clothing to secure both the holster and, in turn, your gun. But to better illustrate how it works you first have to see the material it is constructed with. The “sticky” material on Sticky Holsters creates a very tacky non-slip surface on the outside of the holster. This sticky surface in combination with the compression created by your waistband, keeps your holster firmly in place and in the event that you need to draw, it allows your firearm to slide out with ease while your holster remains in place. Because it works off of compression there is no need to have clips or belt loops which makes it incredibly versatile. So, however you like to carry – left or right side, appendix, back – it gives the user the ability to carry in multiple positions without needing different holsters to accommodate each of those methods. The Sticky Holster also works great when carried in the pocket. The sticky material grabs onto the inside of the pocket keeping the holster firmly in place, and again, allows a smooth draw.
The design of the Sticky Holster makes it thin and inconspicuous, which when it comes to concealed carry is ideal. The Sticky is stealthy! Inside, is a closed-cell foam and liner that provide a cushion between you and your firearm that make it comfortable to wear without rubbing or poking your skin. The natural body heat that is transferred to your Sticky Holster while wearing it, actually helps to conform the holster to your gun achieving a more custom fit.
The versatility of a Sticky Holster can’t be understated as it works not only in the waist band or pocket, but also with a modular system where you can carry on your ankle or transfer it to a travel mount. Better yet, it’s affordable and American made.
