Sneaky Pete Holster Review

What do you think about this video?

Bill Hegerty: learn how to rate any item !!!!!! for what it's intended well can you draw from this holster ?????

Cherokeeman: Geesh! Did you expect the case to be smaller than your handgun? It's not called a Sneaky Pete because it's too small to be noticed. It's called that because no one can tell what is in it as it is in plain view.

Lew Cipher: Magazine ad throws $39.95 at you. Fine print: Starting at. The Keltec 380 one is $59.95. Okay, cool. What about that free shipping the ad points out? Nope, that is a flat-out lie. Soon as I tried to process, BOOM, $6 shipping. Maybe I'll just call them and sort this out. Nah, you click Contact Us and they like to tell you how they don't do phone customer service, that email is the best way to conduct business with you the valued customer. This company is bullcrap, even if their product might be decent. I'll never know because I'm not doing business with them.

scarydok: Ok, coming in here late in the game, but I have to say that if you were expecting the case to be smaller than it is, you should he carrying IWB. The purpose of this holster is to have the gun CONCEALED outside of the waistband. If you have a holster that is going to be the exact size of the weapon, you will still be able to tell it's a weapon. The point of this holster is to cover up the signature shape of a gun. In order to do that, it must be larger than the weapon itself. If anyone questions what it is, tell them it is a diabetes pump or a proprietary device for your work.

Now, as I am a happy camper with my holster from Sneaky Pete, I have not dealt with their customer service or lack thereof, so I cannot comment on that. However, people that are complaining that the holster is much larger than they thought, wake up and smell the gunsmoke. It MUST be larger in order for it to disguise the contents. And for those that say it draws MORE attention? It is only doing so because you can't stop playing with it. Unless someone can see the shape of a gun, they are going to think we are just nerds for having whatever electronic device would fit in it.

Bottom line, quit bagging on a company because of your assumptions. Even if their videos give the impression that the holsters are smaller than they are, when you select the holster for your model, they give you the dimensions of the holster. It is not their fault that you can't use a ruler or measuring tape.

Clayton Burkland: It's obviously going to be bigger than your gun to cover it, you didn't figure that out ahead of time..? I can't believe you're complaining about the size.

Mike St James: Sadly, Sneaky Pete no longer provides decent customer service or product quality control. I received an improperly manufactured Sneaky Pete in Ballistic Nylon for my XDs, and have been trying to get a return authorization for over a week. They are blaming their service ticket system, demanding photos, lengthy questionnaire answers, etc., all of which I have provided...still no RA or other useful response. I can't recommend the product, and the customer service is abysmal/nonexistent. 

Bobby Owen: Do not buy anything from these people.  Zero customer service.  I have been trying for a month for a RA# and they will not answer an email and do not list a phone.

Kenneth Clark: By the end of the video you compared the holster with a conventional one witch you can't use outside of your clothes, what were you thinking?

nr3rful: Get a smaller gun...daaaaa

Michael Thomey: For you Colt Mustang owners. This holster will not fit the Colt Mustang Plus II.  There are two types of Mustangs. There is the Colt Mustang Mk IV with a 6 round mag and a Colt Mustang Plus II that has a 7 round mag. The Plus II will not fit. Also the company does not supply a phone number to reach and their customer serves sucks. I really liked the holster however they are unable or unwilling to fit my needs

James S: While I think your size expectations are unreasonable, IMHO the company should offer a painless return process.

Jimi957: Of course it's much bigger than your cell phone case. Hint: your firearm is much bigger than your cellphone. Otherwise, we'd all be cramming our CCW into cell phone cases.

Charlie Baldwin: Don't believe you expected it to be as small as a cell phone case. Did you not specify the gun you were going to put in it. How stupid is this.

Charlie Baxley: For the fastest safest holster of this type check out the PDAHolsters web site. They have been around for several years.

Bad Hand Jim: That thing is huge! I usually carry my XDS in either a pocket holster or in a paddle (under an untucked shirt, etc.). Thanks for the review; was considering one until I saw this and another video.

flamingpinhead: I will add I was still considering it. But after the reviews I agree it would look rather silly carrying an iPad case on my hip. Have been using a comptac IWB holster which I do like. But limits options when shirts must be tucked. I do have a .38 derrenger but that's a weapon of last resort. Still... may try my luck with the sneaky Pete. Wish I could see one and try it out first. The bad review s make me leery.

flamingpinhead: Look at the size of your gun. Did you think the sneaky Pete holster would magically shrink your pistol? They do market it as appearing smaller, I agree, but I looked at my G27 and common sense kicked in, it would need to be at least the dimensions of the Glock.

RJTINNC: I bought one of these holsters and had an issue with the fit. Like others have said their customer service is SLOW or not at all. They DO NOT communicate by phone at all even when requested. I don’t have time to email back and fourth when they take one to three days to respond to emails. I will NOT do business with them again and would not recommend them. Other companies like Bull Dog offer comparable holsters for a fraction of the price and they use the phone for communication.

Jerry: Well if the case was the size of one of those cell phones the gun wouldn't fit. You had to figure te case was going to be at least as big as your gun.

wamcknight: Good review, but did you think that the firearm would magically shrink once it was in the holster? You did already know how large your firearm was didn't you???
