    It’s VERY small.

    I bought this holster because I wanted the smallest footprint holster I could find.

    This is it.

    The concealment blew my mind. And it’s comfortable. I’ve never seen better quality either. 5 stars.

    This holster is so small!!! I am smitten. It has high quality construction sure but the design is why I love it. Clinger doesn’t make a holster for my Makorov so I shopped elsewhere. What it boils down to is this: I can’t buy decent holster for it until Clinger supports it. (Are you listening Clinger folks? Please make a holster for the Makarov!!!). Other holster companies don’t have the features and quality that my Stingray has. My Stingray holster is very small. It conceals better than I even knew was possible. On another note, the belt clip is flat out great. It is easy to clip on and holds tight.
    I give it 5 stars.

    I love my new Clinger Holster. I’ve tried too many to list here. What I’ve learned from buying Kydex holsters is that most of them use crappy molding processes that don’t show as much definition in the holster. A few companies have some kind of better process or fancier equipment that really gets a good mold.
    There are only a small handful of Kydex holster makers I know of that can come close to Clinger’s quality. The only problem with those companies is they are WAY overpriced and their customer service plain sucks. I can’t believe I got this high of quality holster for under $60.
    I refuse to buy from any holster company other than Clinger.

    I have 20 holsters in my closet. They each had at least 1 or 2 flaws that I learned to live with. Some didn’t fit the gun 100%. Some didn’t click right. Some were too big. Most of them seemed to be uncomfortable. I swear there was alway SOMETHING wrong with the dang things. I had no choice but to muscle through whatever issue the latest holster had because in the end it was worth it to have my gun on me all day long.
    Somehow I lucked into finding Clinger Holsters. My pastor had one on at the shooting range and I asked him about it. Funny thing is, he’s the second guy that told me about them. I had a new gen 5 Glock 19 so I figured I’d try yet another holster brand in my quest for concealed carry perfection. Or at the very least I thought maybe I’d find concealed carry mediocracy that might be better than my last attempt.
    MY SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT HOLSTER IS OVER. I’ve finally found it. The Clinger Stingray clicked off every box that I look for in a holster and even surprised the heck of me with a few other features and qualities. I look for 3 main qualities in a holster.

    1) It has to be small. The smaller the better. Big holsters aggravate the crap out of my skin about 2 hours into the day.
    2) It has to be comfortable. I’m not a Nancy or anything but I’ve tossed so many Kydex holsters into the back of the closet because it was too darned hard to make it a full day with it inside the waistband.
    3) It has to conceal well. I’ve had some holsters that conceal my LC9 worse than another holster might conceal my CZ 75. The Stingray conceals better than my other holsters.

    It’s incredibly comfortable. I have taken naps in my recliner with this holster on and it doesn’t bother me in the least. Also. This holster really is smaller than any of my other holsters. That really, really helps with comfort and concealment.

    If you’re looking for the PERFECT holster. This is it. No BS just perfection. I’m relieved that my days of griping about holsters is behind me.

    Gets the job done and then some. I have to have adjustable cant on my rigs. Somedays I carry appendix. Somedays I carry behind my right hip. I don’t want to buy 2 holsters to do one job 2 different ways. Plus, the adjustable retention is nice. I refuse to buy another holster with a stupid rivet that locks the retention in one place. I have a bad shoulder and can’t pull my Glock 19 out of those retarded designs. With the stingray, I just loosen the retention screws and I’m good to go.

    I love it. Nuff said. It’s small, easy to get on, and tough. It has a great click and the fit is amazing.

    I bought the Stinger a few months ago and thought I’d leave some feedback. It has a great belt clip. The sweat shield is perfect. I can get a full firing grip on my LC9 while it’s holstered. The customer service was great as well. I accidentally ordered the wrong holster. They got me fixed up right away with the right holster. I can’t recommend them enough. Half my family is now using solely Clinger holsters.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5


    Clinger is my favorite holster maker. No doubt about it. I got tired of holsters that didn’t conceal well, weren’t comfortable, and that were frankly huge. I don’t need a holster that wraps from my hip to my spine. You talk about collecting some sweat. Anyway Clinger’s design is smarter, simpler, and easier to get on. I can get my holster on in 5 seconds now instead of 5 minutes.

    Look no further. Clinger is as good as you’re going to find.

    I love it to the moon and back. It’s the perfect minimalist holster! This beats Vedder, Blade-tech, blackhawk, and all those other guys hands down. It just plain outclasses the other holster brands out there. I was a plain-clothes officer for a few years and 2 of those other brands were not at all conducive to a good concealment holster.

    One of them did not have adjustable retention and was too difficult to remove quickly from the holster from concealment with a fast fluid motion. The other one would just not stay put where I wanted it to be. It constantly moved around my belt and wouldn’t stay in the cant it was supposed to have.
    All in all, the Clinger does everything a great concealment holster should do and nothing more. It is small, goes on easy, unholsters easy, etc.

    If you’re on the fence between which brand of concealment holster to buy, you should really save yourself some time and start with the Clinger.

    I get my Stingray holster immediately after getting a new pistol. I have 3 of these now. I guess I’ll have 20 if I keep buying new pistols. This holster conceals really well. It’s very comfortable too.

  11. Rated 5 out of 5


    Well made holster. I especially liked the extra spacers and screws of different lenghts so that you can adjust the fit and retention pressure exactly to your liking. Great idea to include these with the holsters.

    (IWB Stingray) Can’t complain. Does what it is supposed to do. Conceals my PT 809 nicely. Helps that I have a set of love handles that the full size grip molds into ;)

    I have owned and carried in the Original Stingray, the Atom, the V2 and now the Stingray V3 IWB. This V3 is nothing short of the “Ultimate Transformer”. With it’s new ambidextrous feature and options for setting preferred “cant” on either carry side, this answered all the needs for practical functions. The extended sweat shield on both sides is magnificently formed and does not encumber anything. Although the Original Stingray was somewhat smaller yet, this Kydex IWB V3 with all it’s new appointments has set the new gold standard and may possibly never be surpassed.

    This holster is my new favorite. I threw out a bunch of my old ones after I tried this one out for a week. This holster does everything I’ve wished my other holsters would do but never did. It conceals my Glock 17 comfortably.

    I bought a Clinger holster for my Shield a couple months back. Long story short, I now own 4 of them. All my pistols just ride better in them. I put my full size m&p in the No Print Wonder and the rest of them in the Stingray. Perfect holsters.

    I am very active throughout my day. I’m constantly bending over, sometimes jogging, climbing up ladders, etc.
    This holster does not move. It stays put. I know when I reach my hand behind my back it’ll be where I put it on that morning. It doesn’t rub or pinch either. It is a well behaved holster.

    My new favorite holster! I bought the V3 Stingray and I keep it adjusted to 15 degrees for behind the hip. I sometimes adjust the cant to 0 so I can carry AIWB. Best holster I’ve ever seen. So versatile.

    Couldn’t ask for a better holster. Period. My wife will even use it every now and then and she’s the pickiest person I know when it comes to IWB holsters. (I’ll be getting her one for her birthday so she’ll quit using mine).

    My uncle bought this holster for me for my B-day. I love it. It’s my first “good” ccw holster. I’ve been using a nylon piece of junk from Walmart. I’ve tried 3 so far and they were all junk. I’m so glad my uncle showed me the right holster to use. I don’t have to worry about the bulkiness or clumsiness of carrying anymore. The Stingray pulls the gun in so close that nobody ever sees my pistol. I carry the Sccy cpx. It’s not as big as my uncle’s pistol but it’s not tiny either. I have no problems concealing it now.

    If there’s a better holster out there, I haven’t found it. Clinger is also the only Kydex holster I could find for my Shield 2.0 with integrated laser. They really knocked it out of the park.

    It’s a great holster. I don’t see anything bad to say about it. Been using it for a few weeks now. It’s flawless.

    I’ve bought 3 holsters this year from other manufacturers. 1 had play in it and wasn’t as tight as it should be. 1 wouldn’t click into place. The other one was a humongous monstrosity of a holster.

    THIS HOLSTER is amazing!!!

    It is very small. It fit’s my gun perfectly and it has a satisfying click when I holster it. It’s VERY comfortable to boot.

    I already have three that I have been using for over two years, I wear all day long and don’t think about my holster at all, they are so comfortable that you easily forget you have one on. I just ordered my forth for my newest gun and am sure it will be the same. Thanks

    The Clinger V3 Stingray holster which I have just purchased for my Glock 19 pistol is extremely comfortable to wear. It offers strong support to the weapon,good purchase & draw angle. The user need not be concerned about concealing his/her firearm.

    Loved my Stingray! My Glock 19 disappeared under a t-shirt with it. If Clinger only offered it with an RMR shroud and fit my Inforce aplc, I’d carry with it regularly.

    As a 49 yr old new to supporting 2a… I purchased my first ccw got some training and wanted a good iwb holster. I watched a ton of reviews and clinger came highly recommended. So I took a chance and man is it comfortable. Retention is great, smooth in/out….fit and finish is great. I absolutely love. So much so I then bought the iwb mag holder… Then the comfort cling. Every pistol I own moving forward will have a clinger holster.. Yeah you wait a little for it, but its worth it..

    I am disapointed that you no longer make a holster for the Glock 34, I have a Atom for a 34 from 2 year ago. You made all your holsters for a 34 too. I want a no print wonder but it looks like a no go on a wonder for a Glock 34. I have 4 Atom holsters 1 is for a cm9 you dont make cm 9 holsters no moor either. The other tow are for a LCP & a Glock 19.

    -Clinger Holsters Reply –
    Those are on our request list Joseph. We’ll definitely get the Glock 34 added to our latest holster lineup as soon as we can. We have a long list of guns we are getting added to our lineup.

    I am relatively new to concealed carry having only been carrying for a year or so. I have been on the search for the right holster for me for a long time now. I initially went with an alien gear cloak tuck 3.0 for my shield and while the quality was there, the comfort was lacking for me. I eventually tried my girlfriends kydex holster and liked it much better than a hybrid holster. I’ve looked into kydex holsters from vedder, tulster, rawdog, and so many more and while I’m sure they are great holsters I think I found my holster brand when I ordered the v3 stingray from clinger. I carry an hkp30 now so it’s quite a thick gun to carry. Having wore this holster for a month or so now on a pretty regular basis I can say the quality and comfort is beyond anything I have wore before. I liked this one so much I ordered the no print wonder for my Px4 storm compact and the remora style holster clinger has. A review for those will be coming soon but as for the v3 sting ray, the quality to price ratio is insane. Great quality kydex, fits the gun perfectly and I have even taken a nap with it on because I really didn’t realize I was wearing it. The kydex is very smooth and polished. All edges are rounded. The idea that it was be swapped for a left or right handed person is a nice plus. The 2 things I wish they would change is the ability to customize the cant moreso than what it currently can be adjusted to. You get a straight up and down or a 15 degree. I also wish they would implement a claw type attachment you see a lot of companies doing these days. Maybe the v4 will have this improvement? Either way, I am completely happy with this holster. Concealability is great, Customer service seems to respond quickly to any questions you may have and the shipping is fast once they fabricate your specific holster. Just buy one and don’t look back.

    I have a V3 for my SIG 365 and it works great. I actually bought tho OWB also and use both, depending on my day activities. I’m looking for a
    holster for my SIG 938 with the SIG laser attached. A V3 would be a great backup holster with my 938 w/laser in it.

    Wow. This is the holster of all holsters. So compact but functions so well. I have finally found a IWB holster that not only fits my pistol but it fits me. Retention is great and can be adjusted to your preference. Clinger is also a great company. I bought this for my Ruger American Compact. They have had a holster listed for this pistol for a while but it was listed for the model without a manual safety. I have the manual safety. I asked and they made my holster fit my pistol with the safety. I ordered it on a Thursday and it was delivered the next Monday.I have other holsters from Clinger and they are all great but this one is my favorite.

    Being a Designer myself, I reviewed all aspects of this holster before making my choice. That, plus the fact that no one else makes a holster for my gun which is the SAR K2P, 9 mm and I’m a lefty. I’m quite sure this holster will fit another Brand I own. If not, I’ll order a second. I kind of wanted it to be done in Black Carbon Fiber to go with my mag holster from another company but black solid black is OK as it will be IWB. I’m going to give this an early rating of Five as I’m quite sure it’s going to be a good fit with great performance.

    I would buy this holster in a heart beat if you made it to fit my Springfield XDs 3.3 with a Crimson Trace laser guard laser sight on it. I already have one but I want one that fits my gun with the laser sight.. Pay attention Clinger, Make it I’ll buy it!

    I recieved my Clinger holster about a year ago and can’t say enough about it. Easy on or off,good retention and concealable. I’ve abandoned the hybrids completely. I just stopped in to buy one for a newly acquired Ruger. Thank you Clinger!

    1 little adjustment to set the retention where I want it, and it was ready for use.

    Less than 10 minutes from delivery till I was out of the house with it on. IWB Stingray as comfortable as my OWB Hybrid. Love the snap in retention, the complete coverage of the trigger guard and that it was made custom for my CPX-2. Clinger is my 1st choice for all future holsters.

    I absolutely love this holster. I carry a CZ P-09 as my everyday carry in this holster. I appendix carry this gun with no problems for at least 2 years. about 2 weeks ago the Kydex broke under the clip. I was very sad but after looking on Clinger website and noticing the p-09 was not on the list I called them up and WOW you don’t see customer service like that any more. They got me a new Stingray right away. By the way I love the feel of the new version. Clinger you have me as a customer for life.

    Listen hands down this is the best holster I ever own. The customer service was excellent. I ordered the wrong size Cling holster that didnt fit my mp shield. So I sent it back and got the sting ray. While I waited Clinger sent me a replacement holster until my other one came in and fit like Champ. It is easy to conceal and very comfortable. I am very pleased with my purchase. Five stars from me.

    At first I was a bit reluctant to buy from this company, but I tried out the Stingray holster for my Bersa BP9C (compact pistol) and it conceals it wonderfully!! Very low profile, solid construction, very reasonably priced, and quick turn around time! Purchased another on for my Canik TP9SF Elite and it fits like a glove! I carry IWB appendix and it conceals the Canik’s thick slide perfectly.
