Anyone with Blade-tech NANO experience?

I am thinking of getting a Blade-tech NANO to conceal a Glock 17. Does anyone have any experience with this holster? It is very appealing to me because it is very thin and my leather holster adds a lot of thickness to an already thick firearm. Thanks.

I don't have any experience with that holster, though Blade-tech has an excellent reputation. Your concept of a thin holster does make sense though.

I have a Raven Concealment Phantom for my 1911 and they make them for the Glock.

Forum member Shipwreck frequently posts pictures of his Comp-tac IWB he uses with his Beretta 92, another large pistol.

I have one for a G19. It is nice and thin and does a great job but the snaps over the gun instead of to the side adds width right at the belt. Check out Botach for a great price.

I have also thought about the infidel, but would like to stay with the loops and the Nano works out to be just about the same price or a little cheaper.

How thick are the snap/loops? That is my biggest/only complaint about my leather holster. I actually like the design and it is similar to my leather rig which is supremely comfortable and very stable but I feel there is room for improvement for t-shirt concealment.

The Infidel can be had with loops.

I just got loops for my Raven. I had been using the offset hooks for IWB, but decided to try the soft loops. They are a new design. Kind of a rubber coated kevlar. I'm sure they thinner than leather loops, but I think the difference would be insignificant.

I think most of these attachments can be used on the holsters from different companies. I've seen guys using Garrett Industries clips on Raven holsters, and Comp-tac clips used on a bunch of different holsters.
