Just received the Ambi hip holster. It is very well made and holds my Taurus judge perfect. The judge fits nice and tight but draws easily. The only thing I don't like is the Velcro strap. But I would highly recommend this to anyone.

I tend to use Soft Armor holsters when I wand to place a handgun in a drawer, nightstand, or vehicle console. They keep the handgun secure and protected in those environments, store an extra magazine integral to themselves, and proved an easy to use and intuitive thumb-break for when I want to use it. I like soft, padded nylon in those environments as it does not retain the handgun as tightly as kydex would (which makes one-handed manipulation easier with the nylon) and does not carry the risks of corrosion that leather can. Having said that, I do prefer kydex and leather for other uses (IWB, OWB, duty, etc.), but these definitely have their place and are among the better made inexpensive padded nylon holsters on the market. My 5-star rating is based on my particular use of these holsters and not as an all-around rating. One feature that I particularly like is the adjustable retention strap, which allows me to obtain a much better handgun fit than on brands that have a fixed or less adjustable strap.
