If you buy this holster don't just try it a few times the day you buy it. The retention can be a bit thick and needs to be worn in a bit. Having the retention as tight as it is from the manufacturer can make it stick to the pistol to well like even after drawing. After probably 30-50 times drawing with it the retention is a little looser so you can use it and not bring it out with the gun on draw. I've been using this holster for a couple of months now with my hellcat and absolutely like it. It is easy to just put in the pocket and go. I have lots of experience with many quality kydex holsters and this one is definitely a quality one. I absolutely recommend removing the holster from the pocket for reholster it is worth the extra bit of safety. The only thing I would say the holster could use is something to break up the outline of the gun. It pushes the pistol right up against my pocket and you can easily see that there is a pistol in my pocket. Something like the DeSantis Superfly design but I'm not sure if that's possible with kydex or this holster design.
