Alien Gear Cloak Mod Holster
The new Cloak Mod OWB holster from Alien Gear Holsters is a truly unique design because it’s a paddle holster that can easily be converted into a belt-slide holster. Gun owners will also have the ability to adjust their holster’s cant and retention within minutes.
A steel flex plate and a durable thermo-elastomer retention membrane are included. As a result, carriers will hear and feel a satisfying “snap” every time they reholster their favorite firearm. The holster’s durable shell is also fully swappable with all other Alien Gear holsters. (aliengearholsters.com; 208-215-2046)

The holster is intended for OWB carry, and its leather belt slots can fit up to 1.75-inch-wide belts. The rig is also equipped with heavy-duty nylon stitching to help reduce any tearing or dry rotting. (mtrcustomleather.com; 336-879-2166)
