Model 070 SSIII™ Mid-Ride, Level III Retention™ Duty Holster is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you want THE BEST!! I have used this holster for many years. In my mind,this holster has NO peers!! Hands down,this is the BEST,MOST SECURE,COMFORTABLE holster made, then AND now! As an FTO, this was the holster I always recommended to my trainees. AND, the agreed after buying them, time and again. The best proof, you ask? How about saving an officers life? A young officer that I worked with had an arrestee resist arrest and actually over power the much smaller officer. The suspect tried again and again to rip the Sig Sauer from the holster,to no avail. This fight lasted several minutes until backup arrived (a rural area) the suspect actually dragged the officer on the ground by the holster,with no failure! The suspect asked several of us during booking what the holsters secret was as he was in disbelief on not being able to access the weapon. We just smiled and told him it was a top secret model! He asked who the manufacturer was. We refused to tell him. I figured Safariland would understand if I didn't tell this dandy who made it so he and his cell mates could try to figure it out! Thanks Safariland!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great triple retention holster... I used this exact holster while a police officer in the mid 1990's. This holster literally saved my life. During a domestic disturbance, I was assaulted and the assailant attempted to take my weapon and shoot me. Due to the excellent craftsmanship, this holster worked as designed and I was able to retain my weapon and survive the encounter. Had this holster not worked as designed, I would not be here today. I would recommend this holster to anyone and I am using this same holster today!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As stylish and secure as it gets Daily wearer on my rig. At first I was a little concerned about draw speed, but that fear was unfounded as I discovered one night on patrol. Go from snap to Weaver in less than a second. It was almost scary fast. In terms of retention if you didn't know how to get it out, with both snaps open you could pick me right up off the ground by the grip of my Glock 17 without it budging a millimeter. Deceptive simple to operate and looks fabulous. I prefer a higher-riding duty holster in the traditional leather look and after 25 years of field testing, this is the one you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carry with confidence I went to this holster in the early 90s and when my gun choice changed my holster choice stayed the same. This is by far the most comfortable holster for me. This holster rides high and close to the body as a duty holster is concerned. The car seat will not push up on the holster when seated as the ride height is perfect. The retention features an excellent design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. While an active policeman I used this holster for for my Beretta 92F for a long time and always felt comfortable and safe. When I went to the .45 cal S&W, 4506, I switched to a Holt holster, lower slung. Now retired, my current work requires that I wear a Sam Browne but the gun has to be concealed so I went back to the Safariland mid rise. I am having a hard time breaking this new one in for my S&W 4506. The thumb strap needs an assist from a screwdriver to line up the snaps even after two months. It is still a comfortable and I think, very safe holster. Thumb strap needs to be a little thinner width wise. It is an excellent holster and well worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Holster Thus is the 2nd time I have purchased this holster - the first time being in 2002. After 13 years of pretty much daily wear the exterior finish wore away from rubbing the interior of the squad and wasn't sufficient for uniform inspecton. The holster still works great. I was able to break in the new one within about an hour. It took me a couple days to break in the previous one. I like the redesign of the thumb break from the previous version. Easier to hit it now. Great holster!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one for me. I have been using this holster since 1991 for 1911's, Sig, and Glock. I have found no other holster that I am comfortable and confident with when my life is at stake.
