As a dedicated fan of holsters and other gear made out of horsehide, I was very pleased to see a familiar brown truck and special brown box being delivered the other day.
Crafted from both horsehide and cowhide, This HIGH NOON HOLSTERS product is a striking shoulder rig. Using the harvest moon (my term) colored natural horsehide for the holster body and magazine pouches and black cowhide straps for this Under Taker model. This combo of materials gives it a distinct look! A real traffic stopper.
Given that fact that my new P-01 features a Crimson trace laser grip, the holster fits, but with some effort in snapping it shut. Those of you with standard CZ grips should do fine.
I tried my wife's PCR in this HN rig and encountered no problems just Like my High Noon UNDER ARMOR shoulder holster that is made of synthetic material.
This is a nice rig to carry your CZ in. The stitching is strong and even. When ordered in natural color, the usual golden colored thread comes standard. The contrast keeps you starring at the holster admiring its beauty.
Molded for a P-01, the PCR and my RAMI also fit well. The PCR seems to slide in easily and there is also the added option of using an adjustment screw to fine tune the draw. A positive, metal reinforced thumb snap is standard on all High Noon's thumbreaks for extra security. The offside mag pouch holds 16-shot CZ magazines, or shorter ones like those for the P-01 in the CZ Compact family. It's an extremely versatile rig for accepting different magazines.
Using a support center (plastic) that looks like a diamond shape with rivets holding each strap in place. Each strap moves independently for pure comfort. This sits directly in the center of your back as you wear the UNDER TAKER.
This rig balances quite well when worn, and I've carried it for the last four days on quick morning trips to Wal-Mart and other places. Its fast becoming one of my favorites.
In contrast to the usual cloned type shoulder rigs, these straps are thinner, and lack the flair or should I say "belling" as often seen with
those type of straps. The fatter straps usually "curl" up after a few months,
causing printing under your shirt. Not so with the High Noon straps, they have a huge reputation
for field testing their products and they got it right as usual.The straps are wide enough for proper support, but not too wide that they become exposed under a light jacket, and seem identical to those on my UNDER ARMOR rig. However, this P-01 rig uses black dyed cowhide straps. Along with straps, the rivets and adjustment screws are well thought out and sturdy. In my eyes. I think that horsehide is a superior material to cowhide. More costly, but it won't fade, stretch or rot without difficulty that is. I'm sure that time and elements will erode anything.
They also sent me a DOUBLE TAKE magazine pouch, also made out of horsehide. This is equally as nice or nicer than my single magazine case called the TIE BREAKER, that I've worn daily for the last 3 years, and it is good as new, it wears like iron. I expect the same performance out of this new mag pouch, but what else did I expect out of High Noon? Its a sturdy and comfortable way to carry your spare CZ magazines by using the belt loops or snapping it on your belt. You can see the Double Take and and other offerings on the HN website.
HIGH NOON has hit a home run with this blending of horsehide , contrasting stiching and cowhide materials. So whats not to like?
