“Ava” IWB Women’s HolsterRetail price: $59.99
Is the “Ava” IWB holster a practical concealed carry option for women?
Model Reviewed: Springfield XDM specific holster
Material: Thermo-plastic and leather
Color: Black leather with purple suede on inside
Retail Price: $59.99
The “Ava” is similar to other IWB holsters in design except that it’s cut a little smaller for females. This holster is very comfortable and easy to use for my compact firearm. It conceals my XDM better than any other holster I have, and after using this holster I have switched from the previous IWB holster that I’ve been wearing. Lisa Looper and her staff have hit the nail on the head when it comes to offering practical and usable holsters for women!
The “Betty” IWB Holster: $39.99
Does the “Betty” IWB holster (made by the same company as the “Flashbang”) provide a viable concealed carry option for women?
Model Reviewed: LCP specific holster
Color: Black clamshell, metal clip
Weight: 1.6 oz
Retail Price: $39.99
This holster is another great choice from Looper Law Enforcement. The “Betty” is not just for women, however it does work well with smaller firearms which a lot of women prefer. Again, you need to have plenty of practice with this holster, as it does require a “snappy” draw which is different from your average holsters. I appreciate the tuckable feature and the adjustable cant, and feel like it is personalized for my body. This holster is very versatile and is one that I will use in the future.
Santee’s ConWep T-Shirt Holster (Female): $49.99
Is the Santee’s ConWep T-Shirt holster a viable option for women?
Model Reviewed: Medium Sleeveless T-shirt
Material: 100% cotton
Retail Price: $49.99
The Santee ConWep T-Shirt holster is a good idea. It’s designed to allow the gun owner to conceal a firearm in a cross-draw style holster built into the t-shirt. I found that when I wore a small firearm, like my Ruger LCP, it worked pretty well. However, with my larger firearm, a Springfield XDM, it was too heavy and caused the t-shirt to pull down on that side making it lopsided and uncomfortable. The concept of this holster is good but the overall functionality and the limitations due to the materials used make this holster, in my opinion, a poor choice for most women wanting to conceal anything other than a small frame firearm. I feel that this holster is priced a little high for the materials used (basic cotton t-shirt fabric).
Conceal 2 Carry Hoodie: $70.00
Does the C2C Hoodie function as advertised?
Model Reviewed: Bodyguard Concealment Hoodie
Material: 80% cotton, 20% Polyester
Retail Price: $70.00
This concealed carry hoodie is nice quality and well built. I do feel that the design lacks easy function ability. I would use this hoodie for a small handgun and possibly a flashlight and feel confident that I could draw quickly. However, for a full-size or even compact model, I’m not able to draw it smoothly enough to trust my life with it. I also believe that most men would be able to hide the “bulge” that I experienced easier than a woman. Overall, I like this idea but am unable to say that it works exactly like the manufacturer shows in the video on their website.
