QSeries Stealth Generation 2 Glock Holster Review

| December 3, 2014 | 7 Comments

Just a few months ago, I reviewed the Stealth Glock holster made by Q-Series LLC. I liked its low ride height, good concealment, and low profile. I had some comfort problems with the holster, and I returned the evaluation unit. Q-Series told me a 2nd generation unit was coming out.

I had high hopes for the original Stealth, and I was willing to put my own coin down on the Gen 2 model. I was also frustrated at the holster offerings from Gabe Suarez’s One Source Tactical and was ready to make a change.

I was glad I took the gamble. After a month of wear, the Gen 2 Stealth holster is my EDC holster for my Glock 19 or Glock 26. Like all appendix holsters, what works for me may not work for you.

The Gen 2 has more rounded edges, which helped prevent the holster from pressing too deeply into my skin as the first model did.

The Gen 2 model uses the same metal clip, which is almost too strong. You won’t have to worry about the holster — or the pistol — from coming loose. I’ve run, swung kettlebells, jumped, and done squats with the Stealth Gen 1 and Gen 2 holsters. My Glock 19 or 26 stayed inside the holster and the holster stayed attached to my body at all times.

Two recommendations if you’re thinking about the Stealth holster:

1) Put a small patch of Moleskin on the side opposite the clip. The reason is that the metal fasteners on that side may press into your skin. This may irritate you on its own, but as you sweat and move with the holster attached the little metal bits can scrape off parts of your skin.

2) Put the clip closer to the center of your waist, and not at the edge of the hip. Most appendix holsters are meant to be worn as close to the pelvic crease as possible. I found that the Stealth was more comfortable to wear if I put the clip closer to my midsection.

I currently wear the QSeries Stealth 2 holster for 10 – 16 hours a day. At $39.99 directly from Q-Series, the Gen 2 Stealth holster is worth your consideration if you want an appendix holster with great concealment capabilities.

    Thanks for the review.

    I use a similar product from another company, and I love the minimalist appendix holsters. Good to have another viable option.

    I wish I could find one i liked for my shield.

    Ran into an issue when the Stealth is set up for left-hand carry, specifically around 11:00. The clip flexes enough when getting into and out of a car seat (maybe others but this was discovered when I was driving) to press the magazine release on the Glock. I had to regularly check the mag seating when exiting the vehicle. I will be contacting the maker about this. I think they offer a J-clip that will fix that. Still, it’s there in the stock set-up and should be noted.

  4. CR Williams says:

    Update: No J-clip available. Maker says they are aware of the problem and working on an adjustable clip.

    To be honest, somewhat irritated that they did not seem to consider left-handers when they build these. Did they not think that anybody carries left side? A basic miss on product design that is going to bother me about this company for a while.

      I had hoped to run my Shield on my left, but had the same problems with the magazine release button being depressed. In talking with Gary, they said they were working on a new clip but I guess it’s still in the works.

  5. CR Williams says:

    Looks like I get to experiment with ad-hoc spacers and adhesive. I admit that this kind of turns me off about this company and the products. I would expect them to check this given the percentage of people that will carry left-side.
