"I am giving this rig 2 stars. I will illustrate the pros and cons with detailed reasons as to why. I hope this helps.
-The polyester they used is great.
-The fact is comes with MOLLE webbing, accessory pouch, and the holster with mag pouch is awesome.
-Non-slip rubber they put on the leg strap works well.
-Buckle material is super durable.
-(not sure if this is a pro, but just to clarify) The color in the photo is wrong and probably due to the lighting. The color when you receive the rig, it's coyote.
-The mag holder is nice and tight so your mag will stay put.
-The holster is quite rigid which is great and makes quick draw a breeze.
-They use Velcro instead of a generic hook and loop.
That is all the good things I can think of, but trust me when I lay out the cons. I have put a lot of thought into them. I am not one of those reviewers who after a little bit write a review and complain without messing around with the thing. I can't emphasize enough how much thought has gone into the cons. So here goes...
-The stitching on the Velcro is wrong. The stitching is not close enough to the edges nor does it seems strong enough to constantly use the Velcro. If the stitching was as close to the edge as they could go I believe this wouldn't be an issue.
-The buckle that goes around the grip of the holster is flawed. Yes it's durable, but you have to tighten is every time you clip it back in. Luckily once clipped it won't loosen up.
-The holster is universal however my Colt licensed 1911 sits too low in the holster. Problem? Well it makes the button strap that is designed to fit between the hammer and the grip safety is useless, You can't even adjust it since it's attached via hook and loop unless you rip out the stitching on a strap. Take a look at the the strap on the side of the holster. See how it is under webbing and Velcroed in? That's how it looks on the other side too so you definitely can't adjust the visible side. I however did adjust the back side by riping out the stitching on a strap.
-They claim the holster is drop leg and belt. That is a flat out lie. Yes the holster detaches, but you can't put it on your belt, well you can, but won't like it. When a pistol is on your belt you want it facing the ground when standing otherwise it's not the safest thing and a pain to get out. Well the Velcro straps are stitched on wrong. If you attach the pistol to the belt it faces in front of you while standing so it's only good on the rig.
-The way the holster attaches is through Velcro and MOLLE webbing. They messed up on the design. There are 3 pieces of webbing wide enough for the strap. However to have 3 the stitching on the middle piece allows on the left side to be normal sized. Now that is useless since it's angled weird so I cut it out to better secure the holster. You can only fit the holster through the top and middle webbing. They should have used snaps and put webbing on the holster and removed the belt straps. Why buy a leg holster just to take it and put it on your belt? Logic not found.
-The accessory pouch, the extra buckle, and the holster do not have MOLLE webbing on them which means you can't attach is correctly to the rig.
-The fact that the holster has belt straps on it makes the pistol hang out a but far from your leg. This is only an issue to those who prefer it to be flush against their leg and maybe to those in cqb.
-Another issue which you can see in the photo is the leg strap. Now the leg strap does it's job so that's not the issue. The issue is look at how they are stitched on there. They cover up some of the MOLLE webbing so if you try to use the ends of the rid the straps going through will be smashed and appears to interfere with the stitching. This is an issue because if one wants to attach something and it needs the ends, it isn't a good idea. Had they made the rig half an inch longer or so that wouldn't be an issue.
-The accessory pouch is a great size. However if you put an allen wrench in there you will lose it on the field. It's not fulled sealed on the sides. There are gaps on the bottom and my wrench has fallen out just by me adjusting the thing. Luckily it holds a speed loader and other items larger than the wrench perfectly.
-The extra buckle that came with this is utterly useless. I tried to use it in order to better secure my rig, but the snap came undone when I over tightened it. I may find a use for it one day, but until then it's useless.
-If for whatever reason the length of the rig needs to be increased that's impossible. It's Velcroed in there uneder MOLLE webbing.
-Now here is my biggest issue...they have the gall to claim the rig padding is non-slip....flat out false. It is leather vinyl. That stuff is slippery...this causes the rig to solely rely on the belt clip. This causes all the weight to be on the belt which means if you use this enough the stitching will come out of ones belt loops. Unless there are pants with reinforced belt loops. I do not understand why they couldn't have used a non-slip rubber backing. Totally and utterly careless of them not to do that. I will have to see about using some type of adhesive and put a rubber backing on myself. Otherwise I will end up going to my local military surplus store and get a military leg rig as a replacement for probably around the same price.
I no nothing is perfect in this world and I am sure if there are more reviews that will be stated, but all that I have stated could have bee avoided had Matrix used their brains when designing this product. The only thing that may not have been avoidable is the fact is pulls on your belt too much, but that remains to be seen IF they use their brains next time. I hope this review is helpful in some shape or form :)!
