I've owned this rig for a lil over 3 years now and I've attached many different pistols to it (sig 226 .40, glock23 and 22 .40, and now my sig 229 an u guessed it .40) I've been pleased with it but I've had to black tape the adjustment straps to itself for the fact it would give out an loosen up. All in all it serves its purpose very well without the outrageous price tag. The modules are terrific and very quick to change out. Absolute strength as this right has indeed seen many hard uses and it's life with me. As far as the other stuff yall have?.... dang-m-o it gets expensive
The thumb drive thigh rig is an Awsome, highly comfortable rig base for your firearm and any additional items your wanting to add to the thigh rig. I especially enjoyed the fact that it does not float anywhere and stays in place while being comfortable for extended periods of time with all items added to the rig. Would highly recommend to any who are looking for a quality base for there leg firearm. No downside except that 5.11 needs to add recommendations and additional items that can be added to the thigh rig. Other than that it's an excellent quality item that I'd recommend to anyone looking for this type of system.
Within six months of obtaining the drop-leg module, the velcro that held the belt loops together began to slip. The stitching that held the velcro strips to the nylon support surface had come completely undone. Fortunately, I had some 550 cord handy, and Katrina-fixed the holster until my shift ended. Upon arriving home, efforts to fix the problem all failed. Fortunately, I was able to cut away the defective material, and slip a pair of standard belt keepers into the place where the old nylon and velcro were. Oddly enough, they work far better.
Not a bad rig. Fairly comfortable. The only con that I have with it is that it could be a little easier to switch out the holster on it. I have a Sig P226 Thumbdrive holster and will be getting a Glock 17/22 soon too. I like to switch up my firearms occasionally. I mainly use this on the range, but there are many applications it can be used for.
This has been the most comfortable holster i have used, it is everything i hoped for and is very functional! thanks for making a great product!
I like everything about the Thumbdrive holster and thigh rig except the detachable belt buckle. It is way too big and my hand hit it when drawing the weapon. Easily fixed by cutting it off and added additional length of Velcro for easy sizing and secure attachment to belt. Entire rig allows for very fast secure drawing and movement. I will buy another one for my Glock 23.
This seems like a fairly typical thigh-rig with decent construction and materials. It feels pretty stable while running and moving around. There are rubber bits all over the straps that go around the leg for "traction" which seem OK once the straps are adjusted but make it very time-consuming to change so it would not be good if you were trying to change shooters/clothing thickness frequently. Also, the connection points for your belt are velcro so if you have to adjust that very often it may wear out the velcro.
I used this product for about 2 weeks in Afghanistan and found this thigh rig not as comfortable as others on the market. I will say; however, this piece of equipment is very durable.
From my personal experience with this thigh rig and the thumb drive holster, I would not recommend this.
Good rig, I believe it should have the m.o.l.l.e system.
First off, I am a civilian contractor currently deployed to Iraq and pretty much everything I wear is 5.11. I like the products so much I should buy stock in the company. That being said, I recently stopped using my thumb driver holster and the drop leg platform. I liked the idea of the "Two adjustable ballistic nylon leg tension straps with rubberized threads sewn through to keep the rig from sliding or shifting from the weight" However, after about 4 hours of a 12 hour shift, the elastic portions of the leg tension strap loosened so much that the holster just flopped around. Also, the two Velcro belt loops needed constant adjustment and eventually failed at the sewing. I replaced the belt loops with 550 cord (I could not believe the improvement) to get me through the rest of the shift.
