Best Uses for the 5.11 Tactical Appendix IWB Holster

  • Handguns

One reviewer noted that they have been carrying an IWB for many years and they were looking for a new design so they they tried this but found it not to be comfortable at all. They think the design is too big, the top part too tall which causes it to dig into your body. Others note that the holster itself is a good idea but find that it doesn’t provide enough retention. This is a point that was echoed in a number of the reviews we found for the product. Other reviewers spoke about the release not being free enough and how the holster comes out of place if you are not wearing a belt which is not something preferred by everyone while there are others who wouldn’t dream of going out without a belt.

The 5.11 Tactical Appendix IWB Holster definitely has some mixed reviews. We found five star reviews and three star reviews so the verdict on this is still out. You can still check out this and other holsters sold here at Range Master Tactical Gear in our holster section.
