Reviews of New Ankle Holsters

Ankle Holster Reviews


With the advent of a whole wave of super-small guns more and more people in the Concealed Carry community continue to incorporate a backup gun into their daily carry routine. If you find that your clothing choice for the day doesn't have any pockets, then a good alternative is a easily concealed ankle holster.

A good ankle holster is ideal for carrying a very small backup gun (BUG) which may be the determining factor in whether you go home alive or not. Most people, when determining their daily load out immediately think of spare magazines or speed loaders when considering what to do in the case extra ammunition is needed. Often times, in the heat of a firefight when adrenaline is coursing through the body, reloading a gun can be far more difficult than anticipated. In these cases, it's often best to just drop the empty gun and go for a second that is loaded and ready to go. These are the types of situations where an ankle holster comes in very handy.

For many years, ankle holsters were only fashioned from leather, but today you can find them produced from super-plastics such as Kydex as well as injection molded plastic. Each type of ankle holster has it's own strengths and weaknesses, so it's usually best to do some research before selecting one that might not be right for you.

Regardless of the fact that new ankle holster designs have come on the market because of these popular materials, you'll soon discover that overall, there is not a lot to choose from when compared to belt holsters. This is due in part to the fact that the ankle holster is less popular and the each holster manufacturer usually only produces one ankle rig in their entire lineup.

Regardless of this fact, if you are hunting for more information on a specific holster model, you can look below or use the search function to find reviews on the ankle holster you are looking for.

Fobus made a name for itself pioneering the field of injection-molded holsters. The company feels that all traditional holster designs can be improved upon by utilizing polymer. This goes for the traditional ankle holster as well. The holster body itself is made of injection molded plastic while the band is neoprene. Black is the only color. Made for small frame pistols and holsters both. Production runs include models for right or left handed shooters.
