Finally found the perfect holster.. Check it!!!




So i'm sure there have been 999,999,999.967 other posts just like this one but this one really has to be the true best of the best in IWB holsters when it comes to perfect concealment and 100% comfort. I came across a little website called www.n82tactical.com , a little shop in North Carolina owned by two guys: Nate & Nate. They decided to come up with their own brand of holster, their goal being to create the most comfortable and concealable holster. I ordered the model for a 3" 1911, Crimson Trace Grip compatible. I waited patiently for about a week, and it finally arrived this morning. The holster has excellent retention, has adjustable cant, you can't even tell it's there, and one of my favorite parts is the soft suede backing. I tucked the holster in, put in my UC II, and after messing around on the computer for thirty minutes or so, left to go get some food at the mall and get some new shirts for work (forgetting the holster was there, mind you).. So it was a great feeling when I realized that I had completely forgot I had the holster on while I was walking through the mall. Normally with other holsters i'm always self conscious, thinking that people might see the bulge in my pants or something ( Get your mind out of the gutter people ).. Another cool thing with the suede back is that if it's hot where you live (I live in Arizona...) or you are sweating, you still feel cool and it kind of just absorbs and still feels cool. It's very soft.

Anyways, here are some pics I took with my New Agent 9mm & Ultra Carry II with Crimson grips:








I give this holster 10/10 for concealment, and 10/10 for comfort, and 10/10 for retention!! That's all you can ask for in an inside the waistband holster, and I've honestly never worn a holster this comfortable in my life. So props and thank you to n82tactical.com for making this awesome holster and I will definitely be ordering another for my Sig Scorpion & my Pro Carry HD II! For anybody out there looking for a good conceal holster to carry daily, this is definitely the one to go with. Thanks for reading guys!

Has anyone tried or bought a FusionPac IWB holster from Tacti Pac.com ? The owner Anthony has a video on this holster on YouTube, So check it out, I am in the process of ordering one for my 1911. It looks real comfortable to wear etc.

How is the inside part of the holster against the body? Is it comfortable against bare skin ? This question is in regards to both of the holsters discussed here

Cool, i just got my first 1911 (SW1911sc E-series) and i have been looking into some IWB holsters. I think one of these might be my first! Its a 4.25" barrel, and they have one designed for 4.25" 1911's! I think it would work great

Thanks for the info

they are a little big but mine is for a 5" barrel which there has to be more material for it to conceal and protect your body better. and besides them being a little big they conceal well and are the most comfortable holsters i have had in a long while

I just got mine last week, wore it a couple times out and it is a wonderful holster. I really got tired of the grips cutting into my side and with the pad on the back... it aint happening again. I carry a Kimber ultra carry II with the crimson grips. I REALLY like the N82 IWB holster and highly recommend it to anyone. I called them with my order and they are very nice folks to deal with...

Glad you like it!

It would be way too big for me. Looks like it could get hot in the summer.

Definitely not... It's not as big as it looks, yeah the pad looks kinda big but it just rests against your skin and feels that much more comfortable.. And today I was just going through my 1911 collection and realized that (and I don't know if this is just a marketing scheme to make more money, or what) that this n82tactical holster I bought for my 3" Kimber, fits all of my non-railed 4" 1911's PERFECTLY also... So i'm kinda excited about that I won't be needing to buy another one for my commander sized 1911's

The end of the barrel on the commander sized ones does stick out of the bottom a little bit, so if that's not your thing then you can buy one that is made specifically for commander sized models of your handgun and it probably won't.

Here's a picture of my n82tactical holster (Bought this specifically for 3" Kimber w/o rail) with my 4" Kimber in it, and as you can see, the barrel sticks out the bottom a little, but the retention is just as good and it works.

After seeing this thread, I ordered one for a 5" gun specifically to see how it did against bare skin.
Quite comfortable. Wore it all day yesterday underneath an untucked polo shirt. It is the only holster I've found that was acceptable without at least a tee shirt underneath it.
I would just as soon that it did NOT have any retention features... for IWB I rely on stealth for retention.
