Default Lobo & Kramer Reviews

Within a few days of each other I received a horsehide pancake scabbard from Kramer Gun Leather, (S&W 4013TSW) & a cowhide enhanced pancake from Lobo leather, (S&W 1076), I had ordered. I also bought a double mag case from Lobo and a single from Kramer. I've always liked the Kramer horsehide from my first purchase when they were Proline Leather.I wanted to try the Lobo after reading reviews here.
First the Lobo. The holster appears large but it wears extremely tight on the waist and has very thin profile. The pistol fit is perfect. Quality & visual appearance are both super nice.
The Kramer is as I suspected beautiful. Small, thin, rigid, very nice appearance and excellent quality. The Smith fit is perfect also.
The magazine pouches were a different story. Both are very well made don't get me wrong. I had asked that they both have body guards, sweat guards, or as I call them blubber guards. Lobo's was no charge while Kramer charges another $20.00. The problem with both were the guards on either did not extend to cover the whole magazine. I wrote both companies asking how this can be addressed. Mark Fedder at Lobo called me within a day apologizing saying the pouch should not have gotten out. He made me a new one which I received today. It is perfect.
I have not heard back from Kramer after a 2nd email which is really disappointing. I'll try calling tomorrow.

Nice. I especially appreciate the creativity of the Lobo stitch pattern on the mag pouch, such as the 'gunfighter' stitch between the mags. The leather flap behind the Kramer mag I expect is to allow a full grip of the mag end; or because it's intended to be worn left/right so the guard has been made symmetrical. Looks perfect to me :-).

Thanks Red. Yes good point on the stitching of the Lobo. The mag pouch is the new one I received yesterday. So it is perfect!

Lobo Leather is all Aces. I own several of their holsters and mag pouches. The Enhanced Pancake is THE most comfortable holster I have ever worn, and I have a drawer full of holster I do not wear.

My drawer is also getting full of ones I don't use! Mark's will be a keeper and get plenty of use.
Yes even with the full size 10 the whole package feels very small and is comfy.
