TWAW Comments: This has to be one of the most comfortable underarm holsters I have worn. The wrap is soft, with nothing to poke or irritate you. I LOVE the adjustable strap, you can place it wherever you want to accommodate all types of collars. Because the firearm is fully enclosed, it keeps everything smooth with no grip to poke out through the clothes. PRACTICE is necessary for proper drawing though – so do so with your UNLOADED GUN, prior to using it. It is shown here in the Sub Compact model with my Kahr P380.

  1. Heather

    First holster, not sure which size to buy. Will the sub compact fit a Ruger SR 22, or should I order the compact size? Thank you so much for any help.

    • Carrie Lightfoot

      I would go with the compact for the SR 22.

    Will the sub compact fit a S&W M&P .380 EZ? I purchased the compact version first and it is comically large on my body. I was hoping the sub compact size might fit my handgun? Otherwise, this holster isn’t for my body type…Thanks!

    • Carrie Lightfoot

      Hi Chelsea,
      Unfortunately, the sub-compact holster will be too small for the SW EZ series of guns. Have you tried the undershirt tanks?

    Excellent way to carry. I have a Glock 43, which is a small gun. The gun fits the pouch okay, but the magnetic snap tab that is supposed to go over the gun is too short to do that and remain snapped. I will just flip it backwards or maybe even cut it off since it is now just in the way.

  4. Dale

    I love this holster! I have an M&P 380 that I carry. I did order mine from the Pistol Wear site only because I could buy black. The holster is very comfortable. I did buy two pouches as well for extra magazines.

    I purchased this holster in a sub-compact and my Ruger LC9 with Crimson Trace laser didn’t fit, it was really close but just a little too small. Purchased the larger size and my gun is about an inch from the top. Not what I was hoping for, makes it very difficult to remove the firearm. However, I kept it because I wanted to use it while running and couldn’t find any other options I though would work. While the fabric is soft it still rubs me raw when I run more than 5 miles. The strap with the magnet never stays closed and the adjustable strap does not stay adjusted. If you are looking for something to wear while working out, I do not recommend. If you want something the can conceal when you wear a loose fitted shirt this will work for you.

    I really love this holster! I have several types and this is one of my fovorites. It is a very soft material. I love the fact you can adjust your size with velcro but then you can snap and unsnap quickly and easily to remove. I wear mine low under my jeans a lot but with some outfits I can wear it higher as well. I have never used the shoulder strap with mine. This is great to wear at home too where you maybe bending over more, it will keep your firearm secure.

  7. Heather

    I was really hopeful based the the reviews, but I was really disappointed with his holster. I couldn’t find a way to conceal it under my arm like I had hoped. I wore it as an IWB belly band for awhile, but my firearm wouldn’t stay in when I bent over. Laying down I had the same problem that my gun would work it’s way out. It has a retention strap with a magnet, but it wasn’t strong enough. Wondering if I can add velcro to make it work, because it was comfortable otherwise.

    I first ordered the Breathable Belly Band holster, but had problems with my LC9 tilting out at the top causing it to print badly and I found it scratchy too. Then I tried this holster and I LOVE it!!!! It is really soft and my pistol is tucked nice and close to my body – concealed very nicely! I have been wearing it both up high with the shoulder strap and also lower around waistband area without the strap. I works well both ways! I highly recommend this holter!

  9. Suzy

    Great holster for when you can’t carry on, or in your waistband. The picture may not make it look comfortable, but it’s actually extremely comfortable.. Even right up against your skin. Once you get it adjusted correctly, it’s a quick snap on or off. I carry my LPC in it and it practically disappears underneath my clothing. Great product!

    Just got mine and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I have tried every type of concealed holster you can think of and I have a box full of failed attempts to prove it. I am a middle aged woman and have some physical limitations as to what I can wear around my middle area so I can’t do belt holsters or bra holsters or any type that just go around your middle with no straps (they end up down around my knees!). This one is just too perfect for my situation, with the movable and adjustable strap you can wear it higher under your arm, lower towards your waist, in front of your belly, even on the opposite side for cross drawing. This is a very comfortable and soft holster and is very versatile for ANY style clothing you are wearing since it can be worn in so many ways and positions. I got the small size and carry a Taurus TCP, S&W 38 Air Weight and a Sig P238 (not all at the same time!!) and all of them fit, feel secure and are comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend this holster!!

  11. Heather

    Disappointed. I loved this holster at first. It’s comfortable. But the magnetic retention strap did not keep my gun in. I could not safely carry with a round in the chamber. I used it IWB because I couldn’t get it to conceal or fit comfortably under my arm. Maybe if I can find the time I’ll try to add my own velcro retention strap.

  12. Melinda

    I have worn this holster literally every single day for the last couple of months and I couldn’t be more pleased! It’s super soft so I don’t have to wear a shirt under it like I did with my belly band, it definitely guards my gun from and moisture when I’m sweaty. It’s also very concealable and versatile to use. I couldn’t be more pleased with this holster.

  13. J3ss

    Does this work for plus size women?

  14. Dana

    I ordered this holster for myself and I am so happy with it! I clean houses by myself and so was needing something more comfortable and easier to safely conceal my Taurus 38 revolver due to my job. This works perfectly. It is so comfortable and fits nice and snug and does not rub or scratch my skin at all. I do not need to wear an undershirt which is great because I get hot cleaning homes and any extra clothing is not fun. Its also great to wear under my dress when I go out instead of carrying in my purse. Its nice that I can also wear this around my waist and inside my pants. A really great product!!

  15. Elizabeth

    This is my go-to holster for everything. I had initially ordered this holster to wear while running. It’s comfortable, and holds my LC9 in place under my arm while I jog. In my opinion, it’s the best place on your body to carry for high impact activity. I used a little ITWB holster for casual dress but the holster would slide around or pull my pants down. So I started wearing this Pistol Wear holster down around my hips and tucked into my pants… no problem with fit since it’s adjustable. I LOVE this holster. After trying several types, the Pistol Wear Under Arm holster is the most versatile, comfortable, and reliable.

  16. Jennifer

    Second holster from here because it’s the only place who has small sizes. I love this one also. At a little over 100 pounds I have a hard time concealing P22 anywhere on my body. If I carry anywhere on hips, belly, back I look like I’m stealing turkey legs. The small will tighten enough so it fits perfect. Its really soft, comfortable and dosent chafe anywhere.

  17. Donna

    I just received this holster and I love it! I have been on a search for the perfect holster that would work for me when I go for walks and this is perfect. The material is so soft and comfortable and it conceals my XDS without any problems. Highly recommend!!

  18. Letty

    Does anyone know if this will work well with a revolver ?

  19. Jennifer

    I use this holster all the time. It can even be worn without another layer and feels great. It is very soft and comfortable. I like that there is no velcro closure, but the magnetic one. I have a Beretta Tomcat 32. I have recommended this holster to a couple of friends and they love it as well. Thank you for a great holster.

  20. Sarah

    My husband gave me this holster as a gift. I really have been very happy so far with the comfort of the holster. I have worn this inside the waistband and also higher on my torso. I have an LC-9 and use the sub compact version and would not use a different holster.

  21. Tami

    I received this holster for Christmas. I absolutely love it. I tried different holsters and could not find one I liked for conceal carry until this one. It is so comfortable and it conceals my SP-101 perfectly. I highly recommend this holster to all women. You will not be disappointed.
