The Cloak Slide holster is a hybrid design, meaning the part that goes against your pants is leather and the part that covers the outside of the gun is a sturdy Kydex material called Boltaron. The advantage to using hybrid materials is that it provides the comfort of leather with the protection and retention precision of a Kydex holster. The belt loops will accommodate belts from 1.5” to 1.75” width.
It comes with specific instructions about how it should be worn, which are just some general options. Alien Gear suggests that, for a right-handed shooter, the best position to wear their OWB holster is between the 3:00 o'clock to 5:00 o'clock position, depending on the user (12:00 o'clock being straight to the front). This means strong side carry with the holster over or just behind the right hip.
To keep a gun concealed in an OWB holster, it is recommended one wear some sort of outer covering garment like a jacket or even a hoodie. In the case of the Cloak Slide, either an un-tucked shirt or a jacket that covers the rig should suffice.
The Cloak Slide holster is formed precisely to the gun and grips it firmly, so a strong drawing motion is required to yank the gun free from the holster, but there are no retaining straps or snaps with which to fumble.
The Cloak retention is considered "passive" retention. The weight of the firearm, combined with the drag the leather creates from the holster base, and the mold of the shell hold the firearm in place. This retention can be increased or decreased by using the different size screws and spacers provided to adjust the draw retention to your specified needs.
