Stealthgear Onyx Holster Review

This is a guest post by Tarra Stoddardstealthgear onyx holster

I’ve always known that looks can be deceiving. When I received the Stealthgear Onyx Holster for my Sig P238, my first thought was “it’s quite large and bulky”! I must say, it is the U.F.O of holsters. 

True to doing a fair review on the holster, I opted to dismiss those immediate thoughts. I wear my gun appendix style. The first plus for the Onyx is that it has an adjustable cant. I happened to luck out– the cant was set for me to draw smoothly. The retention was perfect; not so tight that you have to jerk in order to draw. The gun comes out cleanly  and goes back in the holster with no sticking. It’s summer, and I always have issues carrying IStealthgear Onyx HolsterWB at this time of year.

Onyx’s second plus is not having to wear a belt with your IWB  holster! The two clips fit securely on my jean shorts. They even allow enough room for me to tuck my top in. The third plus I noticed immediately when I sat down in my car. Was this comfort and airiness that I was feeling? No break-in period needed for this holster? The Onyx Holster’s soft Ventcore Pad entirely covers the back of your gun!

Plus number four was wearing the Onyx for the entire day with nothing poking me or marking my skin. The holster wasn’t hot, it was not even noticeable!  After wearing the Stealthgear Onyx during the first hot weeks of summer, I came to an epiphany: This is the ultimate IWB holster!

I’ve worn it for an entire month and cannot find anything that I would like to change.
