    to me it looks a lot better than the civilian lab equivalent and you could just put whatever molle pouches you want on it. plus it comes in more practical colors besides look at me orange and i might be carrying a gun green.

    what does nobody think this is a cool idea? come on you can put any kind of molle pouch on it the possibilities are pretty much endless.

    As with any shoulder rig, it tends to limit what, when and how you can carry your stuff. I can't imagine they're terribly comfortable either. Having gone through my "shoulder holster" phase I just don't think they're practical for EDC.

    If you carry anything that nearly resembles or gives the idea you are carrying self defense tools, you'd better be ready to use it at any time. It would be dangerous to carry that thing w/o any "real tools in it". Just my 0.02.

    civilian labs, e-holster, urbantool, all of those have products within this niche that is much less tactical.

    i just wish more products like these where shown when worn under a shirt or jacket, as that would, imo, reduce the risk that carlo$ brings up...

    I had an E-Holster unit and loved it. I showed it to lots of people, including customers and not once did I ever get a negative response.
    At the time I carried a Palm Pilot and a cell phone...now I have a Blackberry and it does the job of both items. I have an Otterbox for it and I love it too.

    My brother still uses the Eholster. I gave it to him when I changed jobs..he likes it too.

    I think carrying around anything that screams, "I'm packing heat" is generally a bad idea.

    why would that be the first thing to pop into people's mind if they don't actually see a gun or something really looks like a gun? with the way it comes you wouldn't have to put a holster on it and then there's no reason for anybody to think that.

    I personally think that it's pretty ridiculous looking. But a great thing to strap on if you want to draw attention to yourself.

    it's not like it's that different than the civilian labs things just more versatile. you can pretty much put whatever molle pouches on it you want. and you can put a holster on if you want also.

    i think thats very much the idea. wearing it in the open like the images show is just to demonstrate how it fits on the person, imo...

    IMHO it has a very tactical/military look, which is fine if you like it that way, but something I like to avoid with my EDC stuff.

    Good for the intended weapon purpose but used otherwise for gadgets and EDC i think its asking to bring on unwanted attention

    I like it.

    I'd wear one too, but right now I'm looking at a lunada clone and the msr would be in the way.
