Sticky Holsters was founded in 2010 by a former SWAT officer who wanted a simpler option for everyday carry. Sticky Holsters is a 100% American owned and operated company. All of our products are made by hand right here in the USA. We have a Lifetime Warranty on the craftsmanship of our products and we handle all returns internally.
Sticky Holsters brings you a new and exciting way to conceal carry. Our holsters work with compression in the waistband or by friction in the pocket to hold the holster in place for easy access and a smooth draw of your handgun. This self-securing mounting system provides many options for handgun concealment.
There are over 20 different sizes, which include options for light and laser systems. The sizing is generic enough to allow for several different handguns of similar size to be used in the same holster, but be specific enough to provide a snug fit for your handgun.
The exterior of our holsters is made with a supple and soft-to-the-touch rubber that provides a significant amount of grip. This is similar to the material used in the sports industry such as the gloves worn by receivers in the NFL. The grippy or sticky material allows the holster to be held in place by compression in the waistband or friction in the pocket.
The interior material is a woven Cordura nylon that is used extensively in the tactical and sporting industries. The nylon is durable yet friendly to weapon finishes. The center layer of material is a foam product that adds comfort during wear and also molds the holster to the shape of your handgun using the warmth of your body in waistband or pocket carry.
Since our holsters do not uses any clips, loops, or hooks they are naturally ambidextrous. Not having a clip allows the holster to be worn without a belt, in gym shorts, yoga pants, or sweat pants. Since there are no clips, most of the weight of the gun is actually off your pants and is being distributed against your body.
With a modular design and multiple applications as our goal, the Sticky Holster can be mounted several different ways on the body as well as off body carry. Our Sticky Anklebiter is unique from all others systems as it will conform your existing Sticky Holster into an ankle rig. The wrap design allows the operator to adjust the cant or angle of the holster to the most comfortable position.
Need to have your handgun at the ready when it’s not on your body? The Sticky Travel Mount provides a simple place to store your handgun AND Sticky Holster. The Travel Mount can be used in such locations such as vehicle center consoles, glove boxes, motorcycle saddle bags, boat compartments, night stand, and desk or anywhere you need to have your handgun available.
Thank you for your interest in Sticky Holsters. We are an American company that prides ourselves on bringing you a quality product that is practical, comfortable, economical, and built here in the USA!
