FusionPac IWB Deep Concealed Carry Holster made by Tactipac.com



After reading about the FusionPac on another forum I ordered one and have been wearing it for over a week now. The design of it is similar to the other hybrid IWB holsters except the FusionPac uses balistic nylon and open & closed cell foam instead of leather and it also has its own belt system so doesn't require a expensive gun belt. It's still early in my use of it but so far I really like it.



Here's some pic's of mine, and a link to the manufacturer’s youtube video.

Looks interesting, has it's own belt/strap so tucking in your shirt would be easy.



Warm days might be uncomfortable, lots of body contact.

Didn't see pricing on the website... What did yours cost?



I'm liking this idea so I can IWB in mesh shorts.



Also, how stable is it on it's own, the material almost looks flimsy.

I would imagine you should be receiving it soon. I ordered mine on the July 5th and received it on the 16th and that included them having to order a mold for the M&P so yours should take less time than mine.

So far I haven't noticed it being any hotter than my MTAC, and you're right tucking it in is a breeze!

Mine cost $79.95 shipped and it fits both my Full Size 40 and my 40c. So far I've worn mine with jeans w/belt, shorts no/belt, and pajama bottoms with only the elastic waistband, the holster is pulled snugly to your side and stays put.

My FusionPac arrived yesterday. I'm wearing it today. It's very light and a joy that it's not pulling my pants down on my carry side.

I have come across his on another site and was researching this holster. Found this and was wondering since it has been a few months just how those who have had the holster for a while now like it.

I sent mine back twice. The second time for a refund. The first time I sent it back is because the gun was locking in the holster and would not draw. He fixed the problem by sanding off some leftover mold flash and sent it back right away. He even paid the return shipping which was nice. What I found was that the Kydex was so slippery on the outside, that my pants wouldn't stay up. They would slide down the kydex and droop on the holser side. I still had to wear my Perry suspenders which is the reason I went with the FusionPac in the first place. I didn't want to wear the suspenders.

Like vfontjr, I too have the issue of the slippery kydex and my pants drooping on that side. I also found that the top of my middle finger would scape on the edge of the kydex when obtaining a drawing grip which after numerous practice draws became uncomfortable. I also found wearing it without a t-shirt the Velcro straps had some sharp corners and edges that were somewhat uncomfortable.



I do like the idea of it and if these issues could be fixed I'd really like it.

These are the things that I was looking for. On the Kydex being slippery surely there is something that could be done to it that would stop the slick surface. A strip of neoprene glued to it perhaps?

Looks like the whole thing would yank out of your pants on a forceful draw! The reason you tie in your holster TO your belt/pants is to stabilize the holster. This looks completely unstable...

At the makers recommendation I scuffed up the outside of the kydex with course sandpaper but it didn't help. I also attached (my idea, not the holster manufacture's) a piece of black coarse non slip tape, like the stuff used on stair steps, and it helps a lot but also makes it considerably harder to pull up your shirt when you tuck it in. If you wear your shirt un-tucked then it grips your waistband of your pants and works fairly good. The non slip tape I used is really coarse so if I could reduce the coarseness a little it might make pulling up the tucked shirt easier but still keep the shirt/pants in place.

Not saying it couldn't happen in a stressful situation, but I've not had any issue with yanking the holster out of my pants when practicing drawing.

I don't think that would happen. You would really have to try or pull from a hard forward or rearward draw with a bind to do it.That would be an issue with any holster.

This thing looks cheap and crappy. It should cost $19.95 not $79.95. I've contemplated the idea of a hybrid made with some kind of fabric backing rather than leather, but I'd never put it on it's own Velcro elastic strap. I agree a holster should be attached to a belt, that's attached to your pants.
