UTG Ambidextrous Holster Review

with No Comments

The UTG Universal Ambidextrous Holster is a budget nylon holster that’s surprisingly well built for a holster than retails for about $10. 

WHAT IT IS AND WHAT IT IS NOT
If you’re looking for a concealed carry EDC holster, this is not it. Nor is it a Combat Ready High-Speed Low-Drag holster. This is a budget utility holster. I wanted this to carry a purely secondary firearm that’s secure but accessible. It’s the better alternative to putting a pistol in your pants or jacket pocket where things could snag on your trigger.

SOLID CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
First I noticed was the solid feel of the construction. The sides of the holster are quite firm and solid feeling like leather inside the nylon shell. Not like some more flimsy nylon and neoprene budget holsters. Its’ on par with budget holsters from Condor, Blackhawk and a bit of a step up from Firedragon or UTG/Leapers older nylon holster from about 10 years ago. 

LOOK FOR SAGGY AND SNAGGY EDGES
What you want to look for is the edges of the mouth of your holster where the pistol enters the holsters. You especially don’t want soft material flopping along the edge near the trigger. You don’t want any material to accidentally snag you trigger as your holstering your weapon and causing an accidental discharge. This new holster is quite firm but over time materials can soften (even leather) so keep an eye out for that if you choose any soft-sided holster.
