Hey, what's that noise?
Do you have a kitten in your waistband?

I'm a big fan "pun intended" of AG Holsters.

While not necessarily interested in this new product it does make me happy to see so many new innovations coming out of the gun and accessory industry lately. With the ever changing laws and rise in concealed carry there has been a lot of activity on that front. Just the sheer amount of new CCW's that have come out in the last year or so have been staggering. Can't wait to see what else they come up with.

FWIW - The biggest innovation I see in that holster is the welting that is stitched all the way around. I'm on my third free replacement Cloak Tuck and they all failed the same way when the stitching failed.

I am sure there are more stupid ideas in the holster industry, but I haven't seen them.

If you need AC in your shorts, you're doing it wrong. :smilelol5:

Am I in the minority of those who find IWB's holsters in general cumbersomely huge?

They're ugly as sin to boot...of course, if it snows where you live you could always use them as snowshoes...

If you have a hybrid holster with a humongous backing that makes you hot because it covers too much of your body, the solution is to not use a hybrid holster with a humongous backing. The solution is not to put a fan on it.

Not all IWB's are. Here's my G26 in an all-kydex AIWB holster. Not very big at all.

IWB Hybrid holsters generally are rather large though.

I need a fan like that in my under shorts in the summer. Cant wait for someone to invent that.
Seems like keeping that holster charged could be a problem and also dust and dirt accumulation on the fan screen would need to be maintained clean to keep the motor from over heating and going out.

American innovation! I also am very impressed with all the different holsters, ammunition and firearms that are being developed today. I remember what was offered 40 plus years ago. Today it is vastly different. Even the Military has picked up on what the civilian CCW shooting, law enforcement community offer. Although I would not purchase many of these offerings and am a very simple conservative guy I am super proud of American firearms progress and innovations, even if I personally think some of them are pretty goofy. :hurry: :cheers2:

My CYA holster for G26 is even smaller than that, but like yours, it is not at all hot to wear, and it conceals quite well. I wear mine AIWB: https://www.cyasupply.com/collections/iwb-holsters/products/glock-26-inside-waistband-iwb-holster
