I am a huge fan of Comp-Tac gear. Over the years I have tried a a variety of holsters and such from many companies and have been impressed with a variety of products from some of them. While some companies have made one thing great and other stuff crappy Comp-tac has impressed me with everything I have tried. Even some of the smaller companies making kydex gear can be hit or miss in my experience. But I realized this past month, I have never been let down by the Comptac stuff.
I started out buying Comp-tac gear on my own and writing about it here before they contacted me and asked if I would T&E stuff for them. Right now my all time two favorite IWB holsters are made by Comp-tac. When I got the newest bit of gear from Comptac a few weeks ago, I was really surprised with how fast I instantly fell in love with the holster in the box.
The holster is the Infidel IWB, and it is superb. It has become my every day use holster. The holster can gave the tension adjusted and can be attached to the belt, with belt loops or clips, which is what I chose. The nice slick holster slides down inside the pants and the clips snap over the belt fast and clean and easy.
The infidel really is so easy and slick to use, it reminds me of a pure competition holster meant for speed. Being able to adjust the tension and the nice open top you can get your gun in and out of easy with out any work is something you don’t always get in a holster of this type believe it or not. Since it is not as wide as some others.it can be worn with a greater degree of comfort. Some kydex holsters are great and easy to hide but do not always set very comfortably inside the waste over long periods of time. Not so with the infidel. Of course the extra bit of kydex protecting your side from the gun rubbing against you is something always great appreciated. I have been using it non stop for a few weeks now and I love it. The ease of taking it on and off with the clips is really a selling point to me as well. If you do consider picking one up. I strongly suggest skipping the belt snap loops and get this option.
The other thing I got with the holster is the mag pouch for AR15/M16 mags,. Another top notch product. If you notice it is a scaled up version of the pistol pouch.
Like the pistol pouch, it is adjustable for tension to keep the mag in as secure or loose as you want. The clip slides over the belt and closes over it securing it perfectly especially if you use the Comptac gun belt. I love the Comptac leather reinforced gun belt so much, I wear it exclusively. The holsters and pouches work so well with the belt,you can clearly tell they were all meant to be used together with top performance in mind. In fact I love the belt so much I have to be careful or I will get carried away talking about it here.
The pouch will obviously hold 30s as well as 20s and 10 rounders. I used it to run around and shoot with a 40 round Pmag and it held it perfectly. Like anything you do have to make sure your belt and pouch belt clips are the correct size to work together or you may have some wiggle. For ease I always get the same size in everything so I never had to worry about it as long as its not something meant just for MOLLE gear.
I have been using this AR mag pouch for a few weeks and it has been everything I hoped it would be. I do not have the time with it that I have with the pistol mag pouch, but nothing has led me to think It will be a let down. In the coming weeks I will be comparing it to some other brands of kydex mag pouches for comfort, speed and use with a variety of mags so keep checking back for that.
The Infidel holster really is hard to describe just how nice it really is. its always a tough to really explain holsters in my opinion, Everyone is different and no two bodies are the same. But I truly think this is one of the rare Kydex IWB holsters that would work great for just about everyone. Even being what it is, I have found it so fast and easy to get to, that it is hard for me to justify using anything else even my beloved KirkPatrick leather IWB holster that has traveled all of the country with me for years. If you are looking for a great holster, really check this one out and give it some serious thought, I promise its unlikely you will be let down by it.
Lastly the video below is me shooting a drill while using the infidel holster. I am no super fast shooter, But the holster allowed me a great fast, smooth draw that certainly aided me in the run.
