Popped up in my Facebook feed today. Interesting concept. Seems like it would be good for us odd shaped people.

I checked it out / watched the video. Not something that speaks to me. Never really cared for belly-band style holsters. Especially at $85.
I almost always wear an long button-up shirt NOT tucked in, so I generally carry my G26, G23, 1911 or S&W Mod 13 in a standard OWB-style holster. Concealment / printing is not a problem with my long outer shirt. On the rare occasion that I tuck my shirt in, I just pocket carry the LCP, G43 or S&W Mod 638 J-Frame.

Looked and read it. Never much cared for spare mag on the same side as the gun anyway - you have to reach across your body to get to it and it adds more weight & bulk on the same side as the gun. The whole thing looks like it would be very awkward to me.

PS: I ordered one of these pancake holsters (in black) a few days ago, which will be my second purchase from Diamond D.

Nice holster, I've got to get another 1911 holster now.

DD makes some first class, top of the line, custom leather. I've been very pleased with the IWB I bought a couple years ago. Their stuff ain't cheap tho. ;)
LOL yeah no good custom leather is really cheap. But you get quality in return.

Phaeto's, are you looking for a holster? I get the impression you are. If so, have you decided on what you expect from it? Every day carry, competition, etc. If you haven't watched the video's in the post I made earlier about "Fast enough to matter", it might help you narrow the field some. Point being that the design of a holster does effect both your speed and accuracy. It's not always all about comfort, retention, and deep concealment. :)

Yes I am looking and no I haven’t decided yet. I saw the post of that vid but haven’t had time to look at it yet. I’ll do that.

I believe it is a much faster draw if your first contact with the weapon is correct. Just from a quick glance, this looks like it would require a grip adjustment somewhere in the draw, if that is so, that would make it a "no" for me. It does look comfortable and I appreciate that they are looking at comfort, it will get more people to carry. Also, I also never buy a holster without at least having it in my hands first.

I agree with getting hands on first for buying things. But sometimes that isn’t an option.
