Q: I have looked at several Concealed Carry Holsters while trying to decide on one to buy. There are lots of holsters at a lower price than the Stealth Defense unit. Why is that?
A: Our Handgun Holster is a “one of a kind” product requiring special designs, prototype development, injection mold tooling and patent development costs in addition to regular manufacturing and marketing expenses. With these costs, we are able to position ourselves in the mid-price range.
Price is an important factor when choosing a concealed carry holster however, to be fully satisfied, one must also choose for best comfort, concealment, access and dress requirements. Our concealed gun Holster delivers these features.
Q: What is a "Strut" and how is it a unique advantage for Concealed Holsters?
A: The Strut technology is completely unique in the holster world. It is only available with a Stealth Defense Strut Holster. The Strut transfers the weight of the firearm to the belt for support and comfort. It does this by being worn on the inside of the waistband (IWB). Pressure from your belt against the Strut will hold your holster in place. No special belt loops or clips are necessary. The Strut makes Stealth Defense a very stable and comfortable Concealed Holster.

A. People can wear this as long as they are within the 30 to 50 inch size range mentioned in the video presentation on the Home page. Maximum Comfort and Concealment will be achieved by positioning the Holster under your arm rather than forward. This holster, or any other IWB style concealed holster, is not recommended for people with excessive belt overhang.

A. This is a common problem with All Concealed Holster designs especially during summer weather. Wearing your holster over a t-shirt will “wick” away moisture by capillary action and improve comfort. I find the "tank top" style "sleeveless undershirts" most comfortable. They are form fitting, light weight and unseen.
Q. Do you have any tips for maximum concealed carry comfort while wearing my Stealth Defense Holster?
A. Some people report greater comfort from perspiration by wearing their holster over a t-shirt ,or sleeveless undershirt, as noted above. Others have commented; tucking a handkerchief or small washcloth behind their holster works extremely well.
