Model 5198 Open Top Concealment Paddle/Belt Loop Holster with Detent is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for the price, BUT... I have four of these 5195/5197/5498 holsters (all basically the same) for various guns. I use them with the ELS/QLS system. They are a good value but the "suede lining" is a joke. It's just a thin little strip on one side only. It doesn't do much to protect your gun's finish but that's the case with any unlined kydex holster. Don't pay much attention to the holster finder or the gun fit chart. Lots of models they say won't fit will fit just fine. For example most any 1911 works fine but the holster finder will tell you that a lot of them (eg. Springfield Armory 1911s) are not compatible. Also, like any kydex holster, a little fine tuning with a heat gun will work wonders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable holster you'll ever wear I've had this holster for years & years - it is hands down the most comfortable paddle holster I've ever used. I "stole" it from my husband because I it was the only one I liked, and trust me - I tried many. It works for conceal & carry but is also suitable for competition because of how open it is on the top, which allows for a really fast draw. Despite that, however, it is also very secure - I never fear my firearm will fall out if I lean, run or even jump. Honestly, based on the quality - I am surprised it is so cheap. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great material and awsome performance Went to a CCW Class and used 2 holsters (different manufactures) 1 each holster each day. We had a minimum of 80 drills per day firing over 180 rds/drawing and holstering the handgun that we were qualifying with. I used a Safariland with a Glock 19 and the plastic showed no scratches and retained its original position next to my hip. With my 45 Officers I used another competitors holster that showed scratches on the plastic and lost its spring that would place it tight to my hip. When I placed my Order for the 45 Officers I used the wrong Model #, When I called they were very helpful and made the exchange for the correct Model quickly. Great Customer Service

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted! I have used Safariland holsters, for duty carry, but I had recently joined the IDPA and began looking for something appropriate without being overly expensive. I tooled around their website, found & checked our one of their sponsored shooters (Julie Golob,) contacted her and bought one based on her referral. I ordered it from Safariland, it took a couple weeks because they didn't have it in stock and had to make it, but it was worth it. It holds my sidearm firmly, draws clean and re-holsters easily. It comes with their belt loop and paddle attachments. The paddle is too big (wide) for my taste, but it fits securely. The belt loop set is ideal. After getting one for my 9C, I got one for my Shield. No need for me to get another brand, this one is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality. Fast draw. Secure belt attachment. Purchased this holster for use with my Glock 22 in USPSA. Very fast draw when adjusted correctly. Fits close enough to the body for use in concealed carry. You can adjust the tension screw for a more secure hold of the weapon. Nice liner to protect pistol. No rattles or squeaks. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Performance/Price ratio holster I bought a Safariland 5198 holster for my S&W M&P Pro Series and quickly found that it performs as well as and in some respects better than holsters that cost 2x to 4x more! I really like the adjustability that Safariland has designed into this holster. The detent and tension screw adjustment allows the user to customize the retention desired. The Paddle attachment allows easy on/off capability and the belt loop attachment provides additional confidence that the holster will remain in the desired location. The build quality is very high and the holster will withstand the challenges of the wide range of practice and competition conditions (rain, mud, snow, etc) encountered. Mine has seen rain and mud and it looks and performs just like it did when new. I will be buying this holster for every model available for the pistols I own. I applaud Safariland for their great execution in designing a highly functional and reasonable cost holster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than I expected I bought this at the gun store because it was inexpensive and I needed something for my new Shield. I've never used a plastic holster and didn't expect this to be more than a carry-around-at-home holster. But it is by far the most comfortable holster I own and, contrary to one reviewer's opinion, is very thin and quite suited for concealed carry. Using the nicely curved paddle, the holster sticks out past my belt 1-1/8". My shoulders are wider than my hips, so this is thin enough to conceal easily. The holster and paddle have just enough flexibility to give me confidence that it won't break. It holds the gun securely, more securely than I want if I tighten it down too much. The belt hook sticks out too far and has too much hook; it makes it too difficult to remove the holster. So I removed the hook and its screw and let the projection of the tee-nut prevent the holster from coming along when I draw the gun. This works very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs Better User"s Guide I am a new concealed weapons user. Bought this holster to hold a Glock 43. My complaint is that the User's Guide included in the package was for other Sarifiland models, not the 5198. There are no instructions on converting the holster to a belt rather than paddle holster. Could figure that out, I guess. However in the package of spare parts is a plastic piece (2 inches by 7/8 inch with screw holes at each end) for which there is no explanation. Poor customer support.
