Ankle Holsters is one of our most professional and covert ways to carry small handguns and revolvers. Each holster consist of a very light weight holster with thumb break for tip notch security in case of running and jumping. This holster is connected to our hand tailored suede back pad that is very flexible for all day comfort. Most use wool on the backs, but here at MTR we use a natural leather and line it with a sweat resistant neoprene. Using this combination cuts down on weight, smell from the wool trapping the sweat and body odor, while also making the holster sleek in design. This holster is one of my favorites in the lineup that I personally use (I carry a Kimber Solo STS). The ankle holster is made with heavy duty Velcro’s closure for ease of putting on and taking off. Securing the weapon is accomplished by the use of a military grade directional snap device. The snap must be snap in one direction only to prevent the holster from coming out and unsnap if rubbed against something.
Optional support calf strap is available separately. This is a great option to choose if you plan on doing any kind of activities like riding on a motorcycle, bicycling, hiking, hunting, four wheeler. By adding the calf strap will keep the ankle rig more secure on the leg during any kind of movement. This will keep the weapon more stable in the same position on the leg.
** This holster is to be worn on the inside of your ankle opposite to which hand you will draw your firearm with. A right-handed shooter will order a right-handed holster and it will attach to the inside of your left ankle. *
I’ve been wearing this holster daily for a couple of weeks now (duty related) and find it be be comfortable and functional. It easily conceals my Shadow Systems CR920 (similar size frame to a Glock 19) with both Holosun optic and Streamlight TLR-7A light without issue. It is every bit as comfortable as the Desantis and Galco holsters I have previously used.
I recently purchased an ankle holster from MTR for a Walther PPQ sub-compact. The quality of materials and workmanship on the holster is superior. I have two suggestions which are merely personal preference but I think they might make this good holster great. These are two features incorporated by Galco in their ankle glove model that sets their product apart from most other ankle rigs. The first is to place sheep’s wool (or similar) on the interior of the holster where it rests against the leg. The inside of the MTR holster is stiff unfinished leather and is somewhat abrasive and chafes, especially when the holster is new and if the user is not wearing socks or the portion of the leg that is in contact with the holster is not covered by socks. Also, I feel the MTR ankle holster would benefit from a strap that secures by pulling the strap towards the front of the leg or shin, not puling the strap towards the rear of the leg or calf. I think the holster could be more securely fastened by pulling the velcro strap and securing it in front of the leg, which allows you to tighten the strap without the holster rotating as much and would be preferable to pulling the strap behind the leg and the holster rotating out of it’s preferred position. Again, these are personal preferences and only offered as a suggestion to an already good product.
The communication was excellent. I emailed customer service times and got answers to my questions with minutes. This is the best customer service I have received in a long time and I can guarantee I will buy from MTR if I need another custom holster. The product is amazing as well.
