I bought one yesterday at a gun show. It fits my M&P 9c, my 6906 and my Kahr PM9. Wore it last night for a couple of hours and forgot it was there. Great product. Like you said, Erich, where have you been all my life (of carrying that is). Gun show price, $25.

Though it may not be the best IWB holster one would be hard pressed to name a better one if you're speaking of concealability.

Be safe.

I am another satisfied Remora customer to add to the list. I bought on for my newly acquired 60-9 as well as one for my BG380. Both fit the weapons great and work amazingly well. I called to confirm which holsters I should order, and Alan took the time to answer all my questions and walked me through the order process. Great product, great price, great service! Enough said!

I bought a Remora for my S&W SD9 a couple of weeks ago. Ordered it, and had it in hand in a week, maybe 10 days. Today I figured I would "test" it. I wore it while doing some yardwork around the house. I had a couple of piles of rock and dirt that needed to be moved out of my driveway. I didn't have to bend over as far as digging a hole, but the piles were on tarps in the driveway. I shoveled them into a wheelbarrow, and pushed that about 100 yds up the driveway (slight incline) to where I could stockpile the material.
I wore the holster with my SD9 at the 4 and 5 o'clock positions. With the grip facing left for awhile and then to the right. It was at 5 o'clock with a pretty good cant so the butt of the gun was toward the right with the end of the grip toward my left shoulder. Kind of like this, but IWB. Cabela's: DeSantis Concealed Carry Holster

The holster and gun never moved. I am impressed. I like the fact that the holster can be used in pretty much any IWB position. Left or Right handed. I like it so much, that I just ordered another for my Taurus 709 Slim.
I wonder how it would work with a shirt tucked over it. I am going to try that next.
I highly recommend a Remora if you want a holster that you can keep your gun in, say, under the car seat, in the glove box, in the night stand, etc. and then grab the gun and carry IWB if necessary.

I am to a happy customer of a Remora. I am 6'1 260 pounds and finding a comfortable holster was hard till I got this one.

I'm a Remora fan too, hard to beat the all around versatility.

I hate it when they run those sales - I already have a couple dozen of them, now I'm trying to think of what else I could use.

I have used remora holsters for some time, I have one for my SD40VE that I also have a crimson trace rail guard 201 laser on and it fits well in the remora and I have one for my new M&P 40 shield. They never slip or move when I use them.

I know this thread is old, but reading it caused me to order one for my Bodyguard 380. Hope people still love them.

Glad to hear it: I am the OP - I actually have a couple dozen of them now for various guns. Different model Remoras, too: I like the micro holster model and the leather-lined ones quite a bit. I use the "relholsterable" ones with the plastic inserts that keep the mouths open with revolvers.

My Remoras still are my favorite holsters for my light weight pistols, like the BG380 and Kahr PM9.

I have one Remora for an XDs 3.3 and not sure if it is because of XDs short overall length or my particular body shape, 6'-5" 285 #, a little tire around the middle 😖, and wearing jeans, tee and/or flannel shirt with 1-1/2" gun belt. I have had 2 instances of the holster working up and falling to the ground in over 6 months of trying the Remora. I am LH and was wearing the holster at 7-8 o'clock. Luckily in both instances was on my property while doing chores, and the holster falling on grass. I also tried the Remora as an AIWB, but the spare tire makes that uncomfortable 😛 especially when sitting with any IWB. I have used a Mika for pocket carry for years and the Remora serves well for pocket carry also. I am now uncomfortable trying anything IWB without a clip to provide additional security. Trying a FOXX hybrid IWB now, but it is not as easily put on/off as a single clip, but noted that way on the FOXX website. But it is comfortable for all day wear! ☺ I also have a single clip IWB leather eBay holster, which works well, but not as comfortable as the FOXX for all day wear, but secure and easy on/off. OWB seems to work best, but prefer IWB for carry in today's circumstances.
As noted by many others the holster stash grows, and that isn't necessarily bad!

I ordered one for my Ruger LCP on 2/5 and it shipped on 2/12. This will be the forth one I have. They are great and priced well.

I think it took 3 or 31/2 weeks for mine.

Wow. I've never waited more than one week total for delivery of anything from Remora - over the course of more than 2 dozen holsters. Sounds like you got an outlier there.

Default Remora 'tuckable' holster

"The holster and gun never moved. I am impressed. I like the fact that the holster can be used in pretty much any IWB position. Left or Right handed. I like it so much, that I just ordered another for my Taurus 709 Slim.

Remora actually makes a 'tuckable' holster for any of your handguns. REMORA (IWB) TUCKABLE HOLSTER

I use one for my BG380 when I need to dress up. It's a little thicker than the standard remora, but it's relatively easy to use.

Have any of you used the remora ankle holster?
