Highlight: Thigh Holster Tactical Leg Holster,Wrap-Around design with adjustable strap,Usually for Right Hand, Right Thigh

Helpful review: "I carry an HK VP9 as my primary sidearm, and accessories for that weapon can be a little steep in price. I already own a chest holster and an IWB/OWB Kydex holster, but I've been considering a drop leg holster for a while now. It's not that there's anything wrong with my other holsters. They each have their purpose, but sometimes the IWB/OWB holster gets a little uncomfortable while the chest holster is really a more specialized carry option for protection from big animals while hunting. The drop leg holster seemed like a good compromise. It's not a concealed carry option, obviously. It is, however, more practical than a chest holster in most circumstances, and it's far more comfortable than an IWB/OWB holster. It's also worth mentioning for those who have never worn a drop leg holster that your weapon will be more readily accessible with one. Popping the thumb break off, drawing, and aiming can be done quickly and smoothly. Far more so than with other carry methods.
All of the above said, let's get down to this holster in particular. It can be adjusted to a wide array of pistols, and they are rock-solid once the holster is properly fit. My VP9 was a cinch to fit into the holster, and even the mag pouch is adjustable. I've been using the holster as often as possible for the last couple of weeks without issue or complaint. I've even fitted my wife's Sig Sauer P365 with its laser sight securely. Sure, it looks hilarious to see a compact pistol's grip sticking out, but if you want to carry a weapon that size in a drop leg holster then look no further.
I can't speak to durability yet. The 1000-D nylon is the same material used to make my dog's chest protector. It appears to be sufficiently rugged, and all the stitching is neat and snug. It's safe to say I'll be putting the holster through a little hell. I'll report back when I have a better idea of how it holds up." — J. Nace
Trending review: "Good Product, Strong, Easy to Use, Fits Revolver Snug, Easy to Deploy. Feels very Secure when Attached to my Belt, & Leg. I Have Both a Left and a Right Drop Holster Both This Brand Both are Exactly the Same Except one Drop Holster is a Left and the Other is a Right Drop Holster. I Can Move Around Easily, I can Run, Walk Fast, Duck, Roll, Quietly Move on Target Just Fine with This Drop Leg Holster. My Revolver Stays Snug as a Bug in a Rug, Deploying Easy, Fast. This Drop Leg Holster is Perfect for the Price for Sure. Thank you." — Theresa Iezzi
Reassuring review: "Great adjustable holster, fits anything securely if properly adjusted. Only issue I had with it was that the length dropped too low on my leg over the course of a day. The adjustment slipped, causing the holster to be too low and end up flipping around close to my knee. Doubled the strap back through the adjustment buckle thing (can’t think of what it’s called right now) and now it works fine. Still, not a Serpa. But you’re not paying for a Serpa, are you? It’s good for what it is." — Aaron
 

2. GHFY - Drop Leg Holster

Top-Rated: 6,838 ratings

Best Drop Leg Holster

Credit: Amazon.com


Highlight: This is a fully adjustable open leg holster to accommodate different sized thigh circumferences. Made for both men and women, this tactical holster features a secure hook-and-loop closure for securing your firearm and can also attach to your belt for a secure, secure fit you can rely on.

Helpful review: "For the price, this holster feels like a great value.
It's adjustable in numerous areas, it has a spare magazine pouch, you can drop leg or hip, and it feels rugged enough to hold up. I got the brown variation for my Ruger SR9 (full size) with a 4in barrel. The packing was a simple plastic bag with nothing but the product. Setting it up took a bit of effort, not because it's difficult but because I'm OCD. The actual folds in the flaps are fairly stiff and I took time folding/loosening the fabric up enough to contour my personal arm securely. There is an adjustable strap inside, which I used as a "bottom" to fix the exact height of my gun; that way I get a good purchase on my grip when drawing. The draw, so long as the tension strap doesn't get in the way is actually a lot smoother than I thought it'd be. The tension strap on top isn't there for quick draws, ok. This isn't a carry holster where you're gonna quick release and go. The snap belt isn't elastic, it's not gonna move, and it's doubly secured by a second strap. So, your weapon is secure and not gonna be falling out, but on the same hand you're not pulling your gun out fast. You know, I'm not looking for an everyday carry holster, I wanted something cheap and rugged I can go beat up out in the desert while I carry a main rifle. Though I haven't got a chance to put it through its full paces and testings, I'm quite sure it'll be fine out there.
For a better idea of exactly what you're getting, and sizes, I've taken a lot of pics and tried to measure things I questioned before buying.
-The belt loop is over 2in high, so any belt up to 2in should feel fine.
-Leg straps max out at 24in in circumference. You can take a string, put it around your high thigh and measure that to get an idea (consider what you'd wear too, as it'll likely be thick pant material).
-The material isn't super elastic, but the small ends to the thigh straps ARE elastic, which is nice.
-Overall height from tip to belt top is ~18in. A lot of gun peeps gonna tell you not to get a drop because the draw is too far (and they aren't wrong), but you can get an idea of how far you'll be reaching.
-Another common complaint with drops is that the gun will move around and jiggle. Again, they're aren't wrong, that's a very mobile piece of body real estate compared to your hip, but I was surprised how well it gripped my pistol and how well the straps held it snuggly to my thigh.
-The belt attach can be completely removed, as can the top thigh strap, easily (bottom strap a bit more work). This makes it easier to store and provides an ability to wear closer to hip (I assume, as it creates an empty loop inside).
-The inside goes over 7in deep (if you don't use the inside strap to create a bottom limit, as this holster has an open bottom).
-I don't rock any accessories, but I'm pretty sure a flashlight or bottom rail accessory would likely fit.
-My magazine fits into pouch just fine. The strap is adjustable, I just pulled it up a bit higher from default.
My only complaints, so far, are the loose threads which will pop up all over the place, and how stiff the folds were to get a perfect centered fit (pro tip: insert an empty magazine into the pouch before unfolding and refolding it all together, that'll keep your center clear and defined).
I hope this review and pictures will help others with their decision. I'm excited to take it on a few trips and see how it holds up." — Kayla J Silbaugh
Trending review: "Will fit any size pistol pretty much I had a Beretta Apx with tac light it fit fine with the hardware on it, didn't snag or pull...I am now running the Walther P99 in the rig with a low profile red Dot. Again no problems I still have a smooth draw.. the only problem for me is I'm short and the drop leg was to long to rest comfortably and stay in one spot not a problem everything is adjustable and removable so now I just rock it as my belt holster. No big deal I could prob make the drop leg part work for my short legs with very little diy. All in all I would buy it ten outta ten times" — Tom Mills
Reassuring review: "I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase of the Drop Leg Holster. The main body of fabric is a high quality grade cordura, the webbing is also high grade nylon. Every inch of the stitching is FLAWLESS without a single stray thread needing to be clipped. The main snap buckle is heavy duty and the adjustability of the drop webbing is limitless in it's adjustment. Lastly, the locking snap seats snugly yet pops open with a responsible amount of force and the built-in Velcro strap ensures that your piece will not unholster even if the snap accidentally unlocks.
I'm a long time Amazon Prime member and I had Zero issues with this seller. My product was delivered on time and in excellent condition. All this said, I will Definitely be purchasing more quality products from them." — Jaybird

Highlight: Uniquely customized by military veterans, field tested by EX- Army Sergeant, designed to provide the most effective thigh holster.

Helpful review: "For the price, this holster feels like a great value. It's adjustable in numerous areas, it has a spare magazine pouch, you can drop leg or hip, and it feels rugged enough to hold up. I got the black one. The packing was a simple plastic bag with nothing but the product. The actual folds in the flaps are fairly stiff and I took time folding/loosening the fabric up enough to contour my personal arm securely. There was an adjustable tape that I used as a "bottom" to fix the exact height of my gun; That way I can get a good grip when I'm painting. Pull, as long as the tension bands don't get in the way, is a lot smoother than I thought. The tension band at the top is not for rapid stretching." — vidia
Trending review: "I have searched and purchased many drop holsters trying to find one that does not move when you run. I finally found one. I am thoroughly impressed with the price for quality ratio. It holds very firmly when running jumping or squatting. Very pleased with this. This product is perfect as a fully adjustable leg holster. You can adjust just about every part of it. Made well, it should last a long time!" — YU
Reassuring review: "I wasn't sure what to expect being with the price of this was so cheap. Upon arrival and opening the box I saw that the quality was far superior to that of which I thought it would originally be. Everything on it is adjustable, and it has not only a button snap, but a velcro strap that goes over top of that securing your gun in the holster. Would recommend to anyone looking for a drop leg holster." — Ash miller
 

4. Tacticon - Universal Drop Leg Holster

Highlight: Our universal drop leg holster is built from rugged 500D Nylon, ready to withstand the toughest trials. Count on its unwavering durability to face any rugged training or outdoor mission. With Tacticon's commitment to quality, our gun holsters are your reliable companion for the long haul.

Helpful review: "I have to say that if you notice a shortage of Velcro, it's because this company cornered the market on it.
When I received the holster I have to admit that I was stumped on how to configure all the Velcro attachments to actually make it look like the picture on the Amazon website. I consider myself to be a relatively intelligent person but, for the life of me, I couldn't make it look like a holster. Nothing in the package tells you how to configure it but, fortunately, I had a secret weapon. My wife. She took one look at it and, in a few minutes, presto: a drop leg holster.
Once put together properly, I tried it with both a small frame 9 MM and a full size 1911 (with a laser sight on the rail below the slide. Move the Velcro in and the 9 MM fit like the holster was made for it. Readjust the Velcro and the 1911, sight and all, fit in like the holster was made for it.
Once I have the opportunity, I'll try it with the battle belt I purchased from Tacticon as well trying out their shoulder holster.
I have difficulty understanding how the company can sell such quality products for such more than reasonable prices. I would think that just the Velcro would cost more than the price they are charging for the completed product.
And the bonus is that you are not only buying American but you're buying from a combat veteran who helped make this the kind of country we are proud to live in. Thank you for your service Jacob." — Ray S.
Trending review: "I purchased this late December and so far, I am really satisfied with the holster aesthetics and the design upon initial setup and trying out so far. After adjusting it to my leg and walking around, it feels really comfortable and so far holds the pistols I have (I will not state what they are) and am impressed as they are longer barrels. The stability and the height at what it naturally rests at is really natural for me to pull from. I would highly recommend this if you want a civilian equivalent of military compared gear for a great price point! The owner also provided a heartwarming letter for customers and I will always be glad to spread word of products that supports small business owners.
If I was to nitpick over a feature, it would be the velcro loop that goes up to the waist. It is shorter than what I have used prior but it really isnt a negative since I will find the sweet spot for that loop.
If you are looking for a quality drop leg holster, you should get this because it provides stability and functionality. Also, it has that sweet mag pouch toward the front as well!" — Win
Reassuring review: "I recently ordered two Tacticon Universal Drop Leg Holsters over the holidays. One was in the Desert Sand color and the other was in a Tactical Black shade. The original expected delivery time for these was supposed to be around two weeks, yet Jacob & team upgraded my orders (unprompted) to be delivered in just 2-3 days in a gracious show of customer service, an act that otherwise seems nonexistent today with big company competitors.
Keeping the Desert Sand holster for myself, I can attest to the overall quality of it. This holster is a great value for the price, feels extremely comfortable, does not stick out far from the thigh, and is definitely an above average product in terms of craftmanship. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it could be adjusted to hold my two firearms, a Sig Sauer P365XL and a Sig Sauer P320 M17, in a manner that both could fit perfectly even though these firearms have noticeable size differences. Speaking with my brother, he made similar positive comments about the Tactical Black holster that was gifted to him, and he uses it for his Glock 19X.
I will definitely look to order more of these drop leg holster products in the future when the opportunity presents itself and I again would like to shout out Jacob and his team for the awesome customer service." — Andrew Cox

Highlight: Able to support firearm training, tactical operators, law enforcement, and military veterans, this tactical thigh holster works with compact, mid-size, full-size, and revolver handguns and pistols. Perfect for open carry, tactical range days, or airsoft.

Helpful review: "This holster gets top marks for materials, design, and practical functionality. If you are looking at drop leg holsters you will find many to choose from. Most of them are Chinese knock-off. Actually, they aren't that good. If you're making a knock-off you try to copy and good product's design, but they aren't good copies. They are just fake tactical holsters. This one has the feel and function of a pro rig.
I fits my SIG 226 in 40 cal. with the laser attached. The draw is good. A piece of equipment that will last the rest of your life, if you live to 100." — Chuck Roast
Trending review: "The best for the range! Because the holster sits on your mid thigh it is much easier to re-holster and to grab an extra magazine when you are on the range shooting. It fits my full size Browning hi power as well as my subcompact Sig. Great holster!" — Amazon Customer
Reassuring review: "I wasn’t sure if I needed a drop leg holster, but for only $20 it is a welcome addition to my kit! This is a quality holster from a brand I have grown to love." — RJK
 

6. UniqueFire - Left Hand & Right Hand Adjustable

Best Drop Leg Holster

Highlight: Quick release buckle and Velcro strap make this holster fully adjustable Ideal for military, law enforcement, hunters, home /self defense and more Adjustable size: Perimeter 38cm.

Helpful review: "For 22 Dollars this exceeds all expectations. Every aspect of it is fully customizable by Velcro so it can fit virtually any pistol, with or without a light and a master grip draw will break the thump safety without issues or needing to take the additional step. With the right belt set up (Thick additional clip belt with keepers) it is comfortable and holds whatever pistols secure (For example my G21 and G17 both with TLR-1 SL for tests). The belt loop area is also customizable to whatever belt width you desire. Obviously this wouldn't be my first choice set up to go into the apocalypse (lol) but I'd rather have this for its last minute capabilities than nothing. Can't go wrong." — Evan Souza
Trending review: "Exactly as advertised. Easy to use. I used them for a big airsoft revolver, (H8R Gen2) plus laser sites attachment and the guns+laser fit just fine. No slippage, they straps over the hammer was not long enough, but my revolvers are huge. Even without those straps still held my guns secure running, sliding, etc. Definitely, definitely worth the money. If you want twin holsters for just about all handguns, these are exactly what you need. (yes, you can easily switch from one style gun to another if you want to switch out while active)" — Garry Michael
Reassuring review: "I don't understand why anyone would look to use a $25 set of drop leg holsters to carry real firearms and then post negative reviews when they don't hold up to running around with them. I have never seen a person rocking 2 real pistols in drop leg holsters in real life applications (have you?). Probably because firing dual pistols at the same time is so inaccurate that your target would have to be less than 15ft away to even compete with a single pistol. lol
Anyway, I have a higher quality and more realistic holster for my real pistol, and would not recommend these for that. But I purchased these to hold 2 fake pistols for a costume and I am very happy with them for that purpose. :)" — MagicMike
