Blue Force Gear is primarily known for their high-end tactical gear. This includes the famed Vickers line of slings, as well as plate carriers, chest rigs, and more. What they introduced at Shot Show 2017 was their first holster. The Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster was born, and we covered it here. I was pretty pumped because even though I’m not a pocket pistol fan, I have a collection of them. I also like pocket carry for those days where I have to dress fancier than a T-shirt and jeans. Blue Force Gear makes great stuff, so their ULTRACOMP pocket holster was an interesting development.
The Details of the Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster
The Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster is made from ULTRAcomp. ULTRAcomp is a high-performance fabric that is used in almost all of Blue Force Gear’s kit. It’s resistant to tearing, fraying, and pretty much tells water to pound sand. The material is also ultra thin.
Thin is good for a pocket holster. It eliminates bulk and reduces the weapon’s signature in your pocket. The Blue Force Gear ULTRAComp Pocket holster feels like it’s not even there. The holster is super light and the material is naturally sticky. Like any good pocket holster, it features a flared wing. This wing keeps the holster firmly in your pocket when the gun is drawn.
The Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket holster and I have been good friends for almost a week now. I’ve been carrying one of the best pocket pistols ever made, the Colt Government Pocketlite. Blue Force Gear makes the ULTRAcomp holster for the Ruger LCP, SIG P238, 938, Kimber Micro, and Glock 42. I don’t have those as pocket guns, but the Colt fits perfectly in the Sig 938 holster.
Once it’s in the pocket it is extremely comfortable and easy to forget. Seriously, this morning as I prepped for my day I left the house, climbed in my car and got to the grocery store. As soon as I walked in the door I panicked. I thought I forgot my gun. I forgot but in a good way. It was in my pocket, and it simply wasn’t poking or prodding me. This is impressive because the Pocketlite is not a small gun.
Like any pocket holster drawing from the Blue Force Gear ULTRAComp Pocket Holster is slower than a standard OWB holster. However, in all my practice drawing the Blue Force Gear Pocket Holster stayed in the pocket. The gun slid out smoothly without any commotion. In both live and dry scenarios I couldn’t draw the gun the wrong way. It stayed in place even when I drew the Colt like an idiot.
I still prefer my typical everyday carry option of strongside OWB and my Walther PPS. If I need to go deep in terms on concealment and want to remain comfortable the Blue Force Gear ULTRAComp Pocket Holster would be in the starting line-up. It’s lightweight, thin as an Italian supermodel, and comfortable enough to forget about it.
