I’ve written about the SmartCarry deep concealment holster a few times before on Gibberish. I affectionately refer to it as my “assault diaper,” and I have found it to solve a problem other holsters cannot.
I was cleaning my Kel-Tec PF-9 and noticed that the color was fading from the front of the SmartCarry holster where the barrel and front sight rest against the fabric. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that there was some wear on the edge of the holster. I don’t think there is any structural danger, but it does make me wonder how long the SmartCarry is going to last.
Here’s the top view. Notice the wear at the bottom. Some fabric discoloration, who cares, right?
Here’s a better look at the front of the holster. There are some noticeable holes starting to wear in the fabric. I am sure this is a natural by-product of wearing the holster and not a manufacturing mistake.
It’s funny; when I first took a look at the SmartCarry, I was concerned that the hook-and-loop hip closure would be the first thing to wear out. It’s still going strong, but now I have to worry about the holster itself.
