WARNING!!! This holster is so good, I almost had a heart attack!
After three years of either carrying a .380 Ruger LCP in a pocket holster, a Bond Arms 9mm Bullpup in an OWB, a Glock 19 in a fanny pack, or a Sig p320 in a paddle holster, I decided to try an IWB carry. After intensive research (I’m retired and have the time) with the primary objective of only having to buy one holster and get it right the first time, I started searching for the Holy Grail of holsters that would combine all day comfort, safe retention, and excellent concealment. I did not want to empty my wallet and end up with a box full of holsters just to get the one that worked best for me. I Googled until my fingers bleed, perused every gun mag I could find, went to all 4 local gun stores and armourers, and asked around at the Pistol Club at my local Sportsman’s Club. I got a lot of varied advice and tried on several makes and models.
Then I ran across the Clinger. Hmmm, the flexible hinge looked like it could be a great idea and was reasonably priced (except for the pad, unless it’s 1/2 off). I’m not a fan of the rear tabs that attempt to push the but of the gun closer to your body and the modular nature of the Clinger appealed to my frugal side since in a few minutes I could switch to OWB or a single clip. So I sent off for one for my new Hellcat with the optic cutout in case I ever wanted a micro red dot. And low and behold, I got an absolutely great modular IWB solution.
And that is why this holster almost killed me. I tried it in various positions and ended up at 4:00, canted behind/over the hip bone carry. It sat well, felt great, didn’t move at all, and with a dress shirt carefully tucked in, only someone savvy about carrying could notice. I was in hog heaven but then then this seemingly well designed piece of Kydex and leather decided to try and kill me. The first day with it was 3 hours at church, and then all afternoon for lunch and a movie. So it was a lot of sitting, driving, and walking in public places, Then around 6 pm tragedy struck. I’m standing at a cash register after 9 hours of carrying a fully loaded Hellcat and I suddenly realize…My weapon is gone! I’ve lost a loaded weapon in public and I have no idea where it is! Total panic sets in with adrenaline surging, heart rate soaring and I’m mentally cussing out this POS holster that lost my weapon despite my tightening down the tension pretty good. Then just before the heart attack happens and I crumple to the floor, I realize my Hellcat is still there!!! Unbelievably, its been there all the time. It’s just so comfortable with the hinge and velcroed cushion that I thought I had lost my weapon. Yes, it’s that comfortable! If I didn’t love it so much, I’d sue these guys pants off for giving me a near death experience.
Get this holster. You will be amazed. I also bought one for my Sig p365SAS and it too is just as good. Just be sure your pants are either adjustable, elastic, or one size larger. And be sure to thread lock the hardware once you get the cant and height just like you want it. I was in luck in that some medicine I was put on made me lose 65 lbs and now I’m 170 lbs on a 6 ft frame that doesn’t have much padding any more. That’s why I had to carry to miss the hip bone. I feel sure any one can find a very comfortable IWB position for this holster that will give them excellent concealment and retention.
I’d give it 6 stars if I could. Highly recommended and I don’t often give full stars.

I’m giving 5 stars to Ken Westberry’s comments. I’m shopping for a newly purchased Hellcat alone and this review, well it sent me over the edge and buying now. Clinger you should send Ken another pad on the house, he’s a great salesman!
