There is a bit of commentary about the thinness of the leather and the rivets that secure the straps. The rig holds well on the undergarment due to the way the leather is cut, enough so to not require straps. It can scrunch the undergarment a wee bit. Boo hoo. The rivets are seemingly polymer and will not come unscrewed. They fit tight and make good sense. The lack of a hard shell holster is different at first, but the re-holstering process, keeping the left harm out of the way (for right handed rigs) and using hand and thumb facilitates an easy re-holstering. My experience is with a sub-compact. Much more comfortable than IWB. Wear it all day.
