Model 5198 Open Top Concealment Paddle/Belt Loop Holster with Detent is rated 3.8333 out of 5 by 6.
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 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 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 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 2 out of 5 by from Child’s Play This is a fantastic holster for its purpose. Safarilaminate is tough as nails, the paddle platform is absolutely rock-solid, and the gun will stay in the basket until you want it to leave. If you want a quick draw holster, look no further than this affordable, low-front package. This said, this is not an acceptable “concealment” holster. If you want to carry a gun in the real world, either put it in an IWB open top rig (tuckable preferred) or a well-hidden thumbreak holster, both of which will be thinner and more suave in classic leather. Open top OWB holsters of the wide plastic variety print noticeably and only advertise that you have a gun for the taking. If you want this for IDPA matches, either grow up and practice with exactly what you carry or save the earth and buy a bb gun.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Error of Ommision I have several Safariland holsters, but they are several years old. Looking to replace them, but no "lefty" for the ones I want/need! I've been carrying and in the gun business for over 50 years and it is my experience that while only 12-15% of the general population are left handed, about 30% of those in the shooting sports are lefties! So, there is a good potential for increased sales by bumping up the availability of left hand oriented holsters!
