This holster is made from 100% top grain russet leather and felt. The Ankle Rig can easily be worn with comfort and security, yet allow quick natural withdrawal. A two inch wide band of Velcro sewn to the ankle band is a very secure and convenient method of attachment that is completely adjustable. When worn properly this holster is extremely comfortable and conceals very well. The Ankle Rig is designed to be worn on the inside of the opposite leg, i.e., right hand units are worn on the inside of the left ankle, etc.
Manufactured by Alessi Holsters Each Holster is Hand Made in the U.S.A.
Had to wait a bit for the holster...but what a beauty! Not only wss this ankle holster beautifully crafted but superbly comfortable. Wore it all day yet seldom did it remind me that it was in place! I have quite a collection of handguns and all I can think about now is...which of my handguns do I want to dress up in ALESSI leather! Now it's Alessi for my most treasured of weapons. The best for the best. Alessi.
Why did I wait so long?

Due to my work, an ankle holster is the only option for me. When my Galco ankle glove started wearing out I decided to kick it up a notch. Well...I kicked it up quite a bit more than that.
This holster is comfortable right out of the shoot yet very sturdy. The thick felt backing is much more practical than sheep skin and looks like it will hold up far better. I believe if the Velcro wears out it can be sent back for replacement.
BTW all Velcro is not created equal. Alessi has picked the perfect Velcro for this application. Heavy duty yet soft.
I was a little concerned that this model doesn't have a thumb retention strap but figured they knew what they were doing. I was right, it's not needed due to the hand boning fit.
This may very well be the last ankle holster I'll ever need. Very pleased indeed.
So comfortable and perfect for every day wear!

The first time I tried on my Alessi holster it felt so comfortable and fit my S&W M&P 9mm perfectly. It is so comfortable and fits my firearm nice and snug but also is easy to pull out in case I need to use it. I have already jogged with it on and even went on the playground with my daughter and haven't had any issues so far. I definitely recommend an Alessi holster!
A great holster

I can honestly say it is the best ankle holter I have ever used. Comfortable all day. Stays in place. Secures the gun. Bottom line, it does everything you want and need an ankle holster to do.
Every Day Holster

I purchased this holster for my model 640 S&W over a year and a half ago. I have worn it every day since. This holster is by far the most comfortable ankle holster I have owned. Also realize the smith 640 is NOT a feather weight weapon. I will recomend this holster to all my collegues.
