Revolver fans, get ready to pack your favorite wheel gun in comfort.

This Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster for revolvers has you covered.

Like many of our readers, I am a fan of revolvers. When packing revolvers for concealed carry, the odd shape tends to put us at a disadvantage compared to the flatter shaped semi-automatic handguns. Luckily, the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster has quite a selection of revolvers it also fits.

I requested an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster for the Ruger SP101 revolver. This all stainless steel .357 magnum revolver is not short on power or weight for a concealed carry handgun. The shape of this revolver has caused problems with other inside waist band (IWB) holsters from other manufacturers I have tried. The following review proves just how adaptable the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster really is.

First off you will notice your Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster is supplied with extra hardware. This hardware allows the user to change out spacers and make the perfect fit and retention for their needs. The whole Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster is a modular design that is very user friendly. Many competitor’s holsters are riveted in place. What you buy is what you get. The beauty of the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster is that you can adjust retention, cant angle and how high it rides. This is an absolutely brilliant concept. In real world use this holster allows many options with just the use of the allen key supplied to change spacers and loosen or tighten supplied allen screws. It is that easy.

The neoprene padding allows for a comfortable carry. The tough Alien Skin surface takes a lot of abuse but is flexible. The internal steel retention core offers the pressure needed for positive weapon retention. These materials make this holster a tough yet very comfortable and safe holster.

Well how does it carry you ask? I found the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster for the Ruger SP101 to be very comfortable when carried above my right back pocket as recommended. Height of this inside waist band (IWB) holster along with cant can be changed by moving to any of the 3 positions. I found the middle position allows the revolver to be easily accessible but most of the holster concealed. This style of carry would be great under a light jacket or vest. Another option is the wearer’s shirt can be tucked between the holster and the wearer’s pants. Now that is a handy option to have.

The Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster is available in many sizes from semi-automatic pistols to your favorite revolver. Be sure to check out the Alien Gear full holster line at their website along with holster belts, magazine holders and other accessories.
