Let’s Take a Close Look at the Incredible Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster

Alien Gear Holsters has one of the best inside-the-waistband holsters out there.

Are you in the market for a new inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster? Look no further than the tough Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster from Alien Gear. The holster has a ballistic nylon lining that cushions the holster against your body.

There is a spring steel core that gives it extra durability. The surface of this holster has a thermoelastic polymer cover with a raised texture giving the “alien skin” its extra grip and retention.


All of the hardware on the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster is adjustable. This allows the holster’s angle to be adjusted to the wearer’s specifications through its innovative use of allen screws.

A panel of extra parts comes with this holster that includes extra spacers of various sizes and extra allen screws. An allen key is also supplied and attaches to the spare parts panel. Everything you need to customize this holster is in one place, which is quite impressive and very handy.


The great folks at Alien Gear supplied us with a Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster for the specified Kahr PM9 Pistol size requested. This smaller 9mm pistol is very popular in size with the concealed carriers. The holster fit for this pistol right out of the shipping box was perfect.

So how does it fit? Well I am 6′ tall and weigh 168 pounds. Any holster that protrudes just a little bit is a red flag on my thin profile. Luckily, the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster hides the pistol in an absolutely superb manner. The pictures tell the whole story on how an ordinary t-shirt can hide the whole rig.


The Cloak Tuck 3.0 also has the option of tucking in a shirt around it. This would be a handy option for conceal carriers in a more elegant clothes situation.

The comfort of this IWB holster is the best I have ever experienced. The holster and the weapon hug the back in the natural space where there is no clothing bulges. The comfort even when sitting is astounding – try that with a stiff Kydex holsters of the competition. It just isn’t going to happen.

There aren’t any sharp edges to gouge you, either. It also ranks above leather holsters because there is an absence of those pesky leather squeaking sounds that are a curse when wearing a leather holster.


The speed to draw the pistol from the holster is the fastest yet from any IWB holster I have ever tried. The adjustable retention holds the weapon right where it needs to be and it stays there. While reholstering is a problem on some IWB models from other competitors, it certainly is not on the Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster. The pistol returns to the holster as quick as it can be drawn.

The holster uses two really strong plastic clips to hold the rig in place. When used with a tough holster-type leather belt, this weapon system stays where it needs to be at the most important times. No need to worry about a migrating holster in the worst possible time and place in public. While the Kahr PM9 is a smaller pistol, I see no reason why even a full-size service pistol could not be effectively concealed in the Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster.

Alien Gear Holsters are made proudly right here in the good ol’ U.S.A.! American ingenuity continues to meet the needs of conceal carriers and this superb holster is a product of that.

If you have not yet looked into what an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.0 Holster can do for you, then all we can say is you better try one for yourself. Be prepared to be amazed.
