The Paddle Holster is our number one best selling outside the waistband (OWB) holster and is used for both concealment and competition. In fact, it is the most popular holster in IDPA and has been used by several national IDPA champions. Our Paddle Holster is the closest (to the body) riding holster available on the market. The paddle backing allows limitless positioning on the waistband without interference from belt loops. How It Works The paddle backing curves over the belt and pants so the paddle portion actually sits inside your waistband. There are two forward-curving tabs (see photo below) that "grab" on to the bottom of your belt to help stabilize the holster while still inside the waistband. This model is fast and convenient to put on or remove throughout the day all while keeping the pistol securely holstered. This holster has an FBI (15 degree forward) cant; the FBI cant is favored for concealed carry. Full-Coverage or Slide Version. A "Slide" version is available for select models. This version is intended for range use only!!! This is an open-ended holster made to fit a series of frames. The holster will fully cover the shortest barrel length in a series; longer barrels of the same frame will stick through the bottom of the holster. Please note that some models have embossing with the CT logo and model of pistol the holster is for.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is an excellent holster that I ordered for a Sig P239. I accidentally ordered the left handed version and had to return the product for a right handed version. This is why it's 4 instead of 5 stars: Comp tac is really slow with filling orders and charges very high shipping. I shipped the holster to them for $5.50 priority mail but return shipping is 3x that? It doesn't make sense. Overall with what minimal Kydex that's being used and the very minimalist design I think the price is on the high end.
That said the holster is great. It fits very tight to the body and with the compact sig I can conceal carry with the OWB holster.
If you decide to buy this holster, you are going to have to accept that it is priced way too high from a material standpoint. However, from a quality, design and function perspective, it is worth it. It is very compact & trim, the unique paddle design is both comfortable and sturdy, and it holds the weapon close to the body, with good retention adjustment. I bought the canted version for my S&W Shield 9mm, and the fit is perfect. Concealment is very good with a loose fitting Polo or T-shirt. I wish that it was $35 instead of $75, but I do not regret the purchase.
5 stars for usability, fit, function. 3 stars for price for what it is. It is an OWB (outside the waistband holster) so it is not meant to be concealed, and Comp-Tac's IWB (inside) work very well for quick mounting and dismounting from a solid belt. I recommend a good CCW belt, as I would for any holster. This is not meant to have retention for open carry, so I wouldn't recommend that unless you are open carrying in the woods for defense as a sidearm for animals or other distant threats (not CQB).
While Serpa holsters are more secure due to their locking mechanism, I have seen others have malfunctions while training from laydown positions in the dirt, leaving the user unable to draw their firearm. This is not meant for official duty with the 'administrative' retention it has.
