    I feel very dumb asking this, but is there a trick to putting the holster on the belt (I use a Volund G-Hook)? To start, the clips are very tight, so it is hard to keep them both wide open at once (I use my index and middle finger). The main problem is that the end of the clip near the retention adjustment parts seems to grab on to the waistband of my jeans, pushing them down. It's very difficult to work the waist back up. No joke, it took me 10 minutes to put the holster on this morning; I had to resort to feeding the belt through the clips.

    I've heard such good things about the DCC clips that I figure the error must be on my end. Any advice? Worst case, I'll order up some PTD loops (which I like on my DSG and JMCK holsters).
    I've been using a Velo for about a year and I have THE EXACT SAME THING with those infernal clips. The clips are both a blessing and a curse for me. I saw a video maybe on Tenicor's Instagram showing how to do it - which is exactly what you said you're doing. I too struggle with the bottom of the back clip catching my pants. What I've done that has made it little better is to get the clips open with the 2 fingers but instead of going straight down - I "reverse cant" the holster and get the back clip in first at a "backward angle" then the front clip.

    Another way that works but doesn't look as cool is to get the holster inside the pants making sure the bottom of the rear clip is inside the pants and pull open the rear clip getting it partially on the belt then do the front clip - then push them both down the rest of the way until they click on.

    What are the downsides of using the slots for the folded-in tabs to run a pull-handle of 550 cord, run through the slots of both hooks and tucked beneath the belt when the holster is worn?

    The purpose would be so that you could pull down on both hooks simultaneously, taking the slack out; and then pulling outwards simultaneously so that both tabs release the underside of the belt.

    Looks like a pretty well thought out design. Just wondering why I've never heard of them before. Maybe not out long enough...
    I do. I think this holster is changing the game. I used it during some FoF drills and the T1 Clips held up amazingly well. I also really like the one piece design with the concealment claw and angled wedge built into the holster. My buddy drove from Texas to Tennessee and called it one of the most comfortable holsters he's ever had. You also can't beat that price for all it capabilities out of the box.

    I love my Tenicore AWB holsters(I have 3). Question for those of you who updated from the older style Velo AWB to the Gen 4...is it worth updating or would you just keep the old ones?

    I have been interested in these holsters for a bit now, sadly I have limited interest in going down Glock/S&W/SIG road any time soon. Do you guys have any idea when we might expect to see this line support Tier 1 pistols from the likes of Walther, Beretta, H&K or CZ? If it's not looking good I may have to try and fan the Glock flame again...

    Reading the reviews here is really encouraging, to say the least... not to mention the designs look great as a whole (well thought out). I have pretty much been totally avoiding kydex for years, but the more I use leather the more I realize kydex does have some real advantages. Consistency being one of them, both in the fact you have to break them in and also the draw itself isn't always the same.

    The fact that Tenicor offers the kind of guarantee they do also speaks volumes about how they feel about their products, it is practically unheard of to see that kind of backing your gear. This alone makes me want to try it, I guess it just grows very tiring getting holster that look great in a lot of ways that end up falling short and you are left holding the bag trying to recoup your $$.

    So I picked up a Sagax Lux after wanting to add a WML to my G19 but not being a big guy I don't have room to comfortably wear an X300 AIWB... Standing, yes, but not sitting or actively moving about.
    But the TLR7 in the Sagax Lux is just small enough that I can wear it with no issue.
    I was very happy with the comfort and concealment provided by my RCS Eidolon and I can now say the Sagax Lux is at least as comfortable and that's with the addition of the WML, so that's impressive.
    The holster body seems to create a bit thicker profile at my belt line causing slightly more printing there but the butt of the 19 is better concealed causing less printing there, so it's a bit of a wash.
    The huge integral wedge works as well as described and was comfortable and natural feeling within 2 days. Being Kydex it's nice that it can move around a bit without grabbing your underwear and causing hot spots the way the RCS rubber pad can sometimes do.
    As far as build quality is concerned, it is top notch... Crisp clean lines and well finished edges.
    The integral "claw" works great and the size adjustment allows for as much torqueing as anyone could possibly desire, or none at all.
    The DCC clips are the shit, as most people already know... You just have to get used to the slightly awkward techniques required to don and remove them. It's not a one-handed operation but it can be done rapidly once mastered.
    It will definitely hold the G19 securely sans a WML but holstering is kind of funky until you get the gun almost fully seated as there's no light to help guide the slide into the proper position.
    The Eidolon is the only AIWB I have extensive time spent wearing so I can only compare to it but I can definitely say I have not given up any comfort or concealment but I have added a WML, so that's an impressive achievement in my humble opinion.

    Yes, worth the upgrade and is more comfortable but I still struggle with the wedge and wish it was available without one.

    You are considering switching to carrying a pistol you donít like in order to use a holster youíve never tried before?

    Not what Iíd do but ok.

    I have been using a JMCK 2.5 wingclaw for a couple of years now, but I like to tinker so I ordered a Tenicor Gen 4 to try. It arrived yesterday, and so far I really like it. I haven't gotten a hot spot from the claw like I do with the wingclaw. Of course, it has only been a day but I am impressed so far.

    Just picked up the Gen 4 Velo last night. Overall, the design is very much improved in both concealment and comfort. I was worried about the length being too short but that's not the case at all. The clips that came with mine have the new DCC finish. The clamping force also seems to be substantially stronger. My old Velo will still see use and will be dedicated for riding/running. For those on the fence, I highly recommend it.
