Like many, I purchased a strong side hip holster for concealed carry after getting my license. I was satisfied with my holster; however, after taking a class that required drawing from multiple positions I recognized the efficiency that appendix holsters offer. Soon after that class I purchased an Incog holster from G-Code.
When I received the Incog the first thing I noticed was how different it was in comparison to traditional hybrid holsters that I was used to and it was not just the MagCaddy that made it different. With traditional hybrid holsters a piece of leather is between the firearm and your skin. This layer of leather is supposed to make it more comfortable to wear the handgun all day. The Incog on the other hand is made entirely of a polymer material and the outside is covered in “Tactical Fuzz” as G-Code calls it. The“Tactical Fuzz” as it’s called is a soft material like you would find on a child’s blanket. The “Tactical Fuzz” is so thin that it appears it would have little to no affect on the comfort of the wearer; however, it makes the Incog extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
After a wearing the Incog daily for over six months I signed up for Combat Focus Shooting with Safety Solutions Academy. I ran the Incog for the eight hour 500 round course. When the dust settled and the class was over I found Incog still in one piece with no wear, cracks, or damage. The only complaint I noticed after the day was over was that occasionally the slide would come in contact with my boxers and I could feel how hot the slide was. Not to the point that it burned me but I noticed the firearm. More importantly, after the eight hour class in 85-95 degree Ohio summer with high humidity the Incog was still extremely comfortable to wear. The hybrid holsters that I was used to would eventually become hot and sticky at the point the leather comes in contact to the body. I did not have this with the “Tactical Fuzz”on the Incog.
One of the leading reasons I bought the Incog played a great role during the Combat Focus Shooting course, the MagCaddy. The Incog comes with an optional MagCaddy that attaches to the Incog and allows your holster to hold a magazine for your handgun next to your handgun. My every day outfit requires a button up and tucked in dress shirt and makes carrying an additional magazine anywhere other than my pocket very hard. The MagCaddy allows me to carry an additional 17 rounds at the ready in the same position every day. During the Combat Focus Shooting this was a lifesaver, as we constantly performed speed reloads from the high compressed ready. When a speed reload is required, drawing a magazine from you pocket is not ideal to say the least.
In conclusion I would give the Incog five stars. The comfort, ease of use, weight, style and MagCaddy make the Incog the leading concealed carry holster if you are looking for an appendix carry style holster. The only downside I really have seen with the Incog is that G-Code came out with Kryptek colors and the Blood Stripe after I purchase mine in black.
Yes I know that no one will see the holster unless I am drawing the firearm to protect my life or the life of a loved one but I am a bit vain it would seem.
