Excellence You Expect
Working well here for a Colt Defender /Condition 1 Ready carry. Galco never disappoints.
I was looking for simplicity, lightweight + low profile, professional craftsmanship and durability, good customizable fit, proper thumb-break, a little adjustable kant. Got all that, including mindful customer service (as always).
Anyone looking at this holster knows exactly what they are looking for. the newer design is slightly lighter, but quality is not compromised... I'm talking about the non-metal polymer hardware. And its easily/readily adjustable once you get the hang of it.
One thing of interest -the top holster stitching does not appear double stitched, but perhaps its not an issue since its riveted on both ends.
I wish the pouch had dual snaps for allowing longer mags, but I made my 8's fit with a little persuasion ...enough for me. (I think you can get extenders.)
Note: Before cutting your straps consider not only break-in period (for adjusting), BUT ALSO your year-round clothing/layering situation depending on your application.
I'm Happy Camper ;^) Thanks Galco.
