Thumbs up VersaCarry for the XD-S

Greetings all,

I thought I'd chip in as a noob on here and post a review of the VersaCarry holster. It's not really a holster, more of a clip I guess.

Pros:
-Light weight
-Zero bulk added to the gun
-Versatile carry positions (you can carry all around your waist L and R draw)
-Works with any gun of the same caliber
-Retains very well (can hold it upside down and shake it with a full mag)
-Different 'clip' lengths allow for you to select your ride height
-Can be mounted in different places (truck, bag, jacket) basically anything it can clip onto.
-Cheap! $28 shipped

Cons:
-Gun is against your body fully exposed
-Gun can change canter a bit in your waist (this is more of a neutral as it moves back a bit when you sit down which was nice)
-Trigger is covered/guarded on the pants side but not the body side of the gun

Overall, I like it. For the price it does the job. I really don't like to carry anything on my hip, I prefer the small of my back. The only thing I'm concerned about is the gun being exposed to sweat etc. from my body. I think it's a nice option to have and it did a great job in casual shorts and jeans with a t-shirt. I like the minimalist approach when I'm dressed for warmer weather to save on bulk.

See versacarry.com. I got the .45 SMALL for the XDs and I think that's the right size. The medium would tuck the gun in more for deep concealment. See the size chart on their website.

Cheers!

Hmmmm I don't know man. It doesn't look very stable ... seems like there would be a lot of play. What about "reholstering" ... I assume you'd have to take the versaclip from the waistband??????

It's very stable actually. The whole unit (gun and holster) moves around a bit but its just a single clip so I'm not surprised. I was pleased with how sturdy it does feel though.

Reholstering is def a two hand job but can be done with it in your pants. Its easier to work the holster onto your belt and in your pants and then put the gun down on it. Its obviously harder than a kydex holster but I don't plan on drawing and holstering it multiple times. It locks onto the plug part good though as its angled toward the holster

I may try one out ... I like the minimalist design. Worst case scenario it ends up in a box with the 43,584 other holsters I bought and don't use anymore

I have one. I like it. People tend to dog on it until they see it in person, and then they are surprised that they like it. It's very secure by the way. Get a good gun belt. I'm sure a two clip setup is more secure, but for a one clip deal, it's very secure.

Forget reholstering . Not what it was designed for, and technically a CCW holster shouldn't be.

I just ordered one ... I have a technaclip or clip draw, (something like that) on my Glock and LCP, I like the clip style carry.

Will be the first accessory I order after I get my XDs. Looks promising, glad to hear you like it.

I have one for my xd40. Although it is very versatile, its not comfortable. I always take if off and put on my hybrid holster. I can't find a comfortable way to carry it. Might be better if it have a cant to it. But for the price, it's not a problem if you wanna test out. I won't be ordering anymore. I considered it for my xds but chose to buy another hybrid holster. That way you can "set it and forget it". I find it difficult to forget with versacarry due to the gun poking my love handles. Mine is for the xd 40sc, I slipped it into the barrel of the xds for a "fit check" and it was still uncomfortable for me. Your mileage may vary. Hope this helps.
