Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of all the most frequently asked questions we receive day in and day out. If you don't find the answer to your question here please contact us.
Q. Will the Ultimate Belly Band Holster fit my waist?
A. The Ultimate Belly Band Holster comes in 2 sizes. Regular and XL. The Regular belly band measures 42" out of the box and will fit a belly up to 44" around. The XL belly band measures 54" and will fit a belly up to 56" around. To measure your belly simply take a seamstress tape measure and wrap it around your belly at the largest point. Do NOT go by your waist or pant size unless your hips are larger around than your belly. Basically you want to go by the largest measurement and decide what model to get.
Q. I have a size 0 waist. Will the Ultimate Belly Band Fit?
A. Our belly band is made of neoprene and the entire outside of the band is made from a material that acts as the "loop" side of Velco (also known generically as Hook and Loop). So the hook size (hook is the jagged side of Velcro) will grab onto any area on the outside of the belly band. It should fit any size waist from 0 on up to 44".
Q. Will the Ultimate Belly Band Holster fit my gun?
A. Odds are good that it will fit your gun. The holster section is made of surgical grade elastic and will stretch to accommodate just about any concealed carry gun on the market. Some full size guns like 1911's and other full size pistols and revolvers may be more difficult to conceal and if the gun is very long you may experience a front sight snag as the barrel will stick past the end of the elastic holster. But if you are talking about a concealed carry size gun it should fit without issue.
Q. If my gun as a laser will it fit?
A. Many compact and subcompact guns now have integrated lasers and many will fit. However, guns with accessory rails and larger guns with integrated lasers may not fit. The critical point of fit on the holster is at the bottom where the barrel of your gun passes through the holster. That space measures 2". So, if the area at the end of your barrel measures more than 2" wide it is not going to fit. That said many customers have simply modified the holster by cutting the stitching and sewing in new stitching to accommodate their laser which is perfectly fine and very easy to do.
Q. How do I wash my belly band or ankle holster?
A. You can hand wash your holster in warm soapy water by soaking it and working it with your hands. Then thoroughly rinse under cold water and hang to dry. Do not machine wash or dry.
