I was in the market for a new belt, so I got myself a Kydex Reinforcd Countour Belt. First impressions are that it’s a very sturdy belt, that provides a lot of support for the gun. I’m using it with my Infidel holster, with the 1.5″ belt clip mounting option. There is one problem with this option.
The belt is pretty thick, so the Infidel clip has a hard time getting a good hold on the belt. There’s not quite enough space for the belt to come up all the way against the top of the clip. I almost spilled the gun out of it earlier tonight, because it managed to work its way almost off the belt. Needless to say, me getting up, and the gun staying on the chair, would be a minor problem in public.
I diagnosed that the clip could probably stand to have a bit more room up where the clip fastens on to the holster, so I added a washer between the holster and clip. This seems to have mitigated the problem. Comp-Tac might want to consider adding a spacer option to their product for people with thicker belts. Especially since their own belt seems to be thick enough to create this problem with the Infidel belt clip option.
Overall, Comp-Tac makes an excellent holster product, and I’ve always been pleased with the speed at which they get their products to their customers. The Smarties they ship with their products are a nice touch too. I’m very hard on holsters, and have broken a few of the Pro-Undercovers in my time, but so far the Infidel is a solid product.
UPDATE: It just occured to me what was really exacerbating this problem. I carry a 4:00, and wear LL Bean jeans. LL Bean puts their leather patch right at 4:00, which increases the thickness of the jeans greatly. Presumably removing the patch would also work, but I will still stand by my request for a spacer option to deal with the problem of thicker belts/clothing.
