Alien Gear Holsters Unleashes Game-Changing Cloak Mag Carriers

Alien Gear Holsters, the most comfortable concealed carry holsters on the planet, is proud to announce the release of the all-new Cloak Mag Carrier.

With its revolutionary design, this highly anticipated magazine holster is capable of being worn inside-the-waistband (IWB) or outside-the-waistband (OWB).

Chief Operating Officer Tim Treto explained how much effort was put forth during the design process.

“Even though we could have easily offered a leather back and Kydex shell mag carrier, Thomas Tedder [Owner] was unwilling to sell a product he would not use himself, and we decided to develop a mag carrier we could be proud of,” Treto said. “We put thousands of engineering hours into developing the best mag carrier possible.”

The Cloak Mag Carrier is available in both single or dual magazine configurations. Both options are capable of being worn IWB or OWB. The Dual Cloak Mag Carrier package also includes a paddle and a belt slide attachment for open carry.

Similar to the award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster, each Cloak Mag Carrier is built with Alien Gear Holsters’ comfortable neoprene backing. This material will provide all-day comfort to concealed carriers.

The Cloak Mag Carrier also includes adjustable magazine holster retention for a customizable fit. To achieve the perfect level of retention, simply tighten or loosen the exterior screws around your magazine. Additionally, every mag carrier is designed with 360 degree positioning. This feature provides carriers with the ability to angle their spare mag vertically, horizontally, or anywhere in between.

Treto feels confident about Alien Gear Holsters’ latest product.

“We literally left no feature on the table and can honestly say this is the best magazine carrier you can buy at any price,” Treto said. “I am very proud to bring another best-in-class holster to the world.”

The all-new mag carriers are backed by a Forever Warranty and a 30-Day Test Drive. Discover the most advanced mag carrier known to mag-kind at http://aliengearholsters.com/mag-carriers.html

Hunter Hatred

I don’t get it. I really don’t even understand it. Seems like these kind of people are the kind that have to find something to get angry about, and if they can’t do that then they get angry about not having anything to be angry about.

Personally, I cannot wait to be in a position like Dustin and be hunting with my children. Spent some time in the deer blind with my seven year old recently. Didn’t shoot, see, or hear any deer. But the experience was still wonderful.

In the past few years we have grown to see much more hatred towards hunting. It’s gotten so bad and violent that just a simple photo of a deer harvest will attract death threats towards children and families.
I was probably more proud of my 16-year-old daughter’s first buck harvest than she was. Of course I had put most of the effort into the hunt with months of preparation, scouting, blind maintenance and the like. It was a great moment I don’t have to tell other hunters how time spent hunting builds a special bond between you and your children.

And like every other proud dad I posted a photo of her latest harvest to social media. Granted I have a bit larger platform than most hunters since my photo reached over 109,000 people with 4,000+ likes and 150 shares. But that’s when the haters arrived.
