Rough or Smooth Out – from a Customer’s Point of View

Posted by Rob Longenecker on October 7th, 2006

I have two different Tucker Cover Up IWB holsters for my Glock 32.  One is rough side out and the other is smooth side out. I have found that the rough out stays in place a whole lot better for me than the smooth out does.  (link to prior blog post on roughout and smoothout here.) 

I must admit though, that I can get the smooth side out holster in place a lot faster than the rough, but I have to adjust it a lot more during the day.  (I carry generally between 15-18 hours a day.)  I finally decided to just use the rough side out Cover Up and just put aside the other holster and take a loss on it.  

Recently, I was looking at the Tucker Gunleather website and came across his “Lifetime Guarantee” page I contacted Rob to see if I could exchange the smooth out holster for a rough out and help pay some or all of the cost to switch it out.  Rob would not have any part of that.  He took my information and said that he would get me another holster at no charge.  I was really floored.  He did not try to talk me into keeping it or give me advice on how to make it more comfortable to carry he just simply said let me fix it for you.  

I have done a lot of shopping around for holsters and have seen a lot of well-made holsters out there, but none with the quality of warranty that Tucker offers.  To me, buying a holster for all day wear is a personal thing; you really don’t know what is going to work for you until you buy it. By then, most of the time, you have just another note on what you “don’t like” – not with Tucker.   

If you are considering an IWB holster and you have a choice of rough or smooth out, my opinion is rough out.  One thing to consider though is, once the holster is in place, will you have to remove it very often during the day?  If so, then the smooth out might be best because it will go into place a lot easier than the rough.    Once you have it in place, and you have it there for long periods of time (15-18 hours a day), and you are active, driving, playing with the kids, walking around, etc., then the rough out stays where you place it.  

On a closing note, either way you go, take your time to research it, if you have friends that carry, ask them what they use and maybe see if they will let you try it to see if you like the way it carries; and if you do decided to buy a holster you should really consider a holster from Tucker Gunleather. You can’t go wrong with the very reasonable price and extraordinary customer service.
