Looking for self-adhesive suede or other lining.

Having a new AIWB kydex holster made and I would like to put some lining on the skin side.... something similar to the "combat fuzz" you find you find on GCode holsters.

Anyone know of a good alternative and a source for said alternative?

Thanks!

If you can't find it anywhere else, check on Ebay.

You could use something from your local fabric shop, and use spray automotive trim or upholstery adhesive to stick it on.

I don't know if LN is available in an aerosol.

I've been using the automotive stuff for years on cars and for marine applications. It's quick, and very easy to use, and will stick pretty much any surfaces together.

Yeah but here's the deal. This is going to be sweat on and up against my skin. Gotta be careful with some of those industrial adhesives.

I've check ebay and amazon, but I think my search terms aren't quite right yet. Wondering if it's called something else.

Check some online archery shops, I've seen moleskin with adhesive backing for use on bow risers. Not sure if it would be in big enough pieces though.

EDIT: like this, maybe just try looking for "moleskin"

I always wear an undershirt, whether carrying IWB or OWB.

Go to your local Lowes or Home Depot. They sell felt sheets, usually 4x6 inches, that you put on the bottom of lamps or other stuff to protect a wood table top. They are self adhesive and cheap. 2 pack for less than $5.

Excellent. Thanks for this idea. I'm sitting having lunch right next to a Lowe's, will check there when I'm done.

Moleskin is the way to go. But only genuine moleskin. The imitation stuff is felt. I attached moleskin to my Shield IWB holster with Allenes Leather and Suede glue. My friend attached his using Shoe Goo and it's holding perfectly.

I got the moleskin from a local cobbler believe it or not.

I just go to WalMart and pick up some Dr. Scholls Moleskin Plus padding. I have used it on holsters several times and it sticks and stay very well. It is on the AIWB holster I am wearing now and it has been so long ago I did it, I do not remember when.

Amazon has moleskin in about 5x7 sheets with adhesive back.
You may have to have one seam to cover entire holster.
I've had mine for several years.

Has anyone tried Dr. Scholl's Moleskin Plus Roll Padding? it would be enough to do my inside and back. I am going to see if I can find some at a store tomorrow to see what the thickness is.
