I purchased my 1st SmartCarry holster 13 months ago now. It has become my favorite and most used holster in that time. But it's not perfect. Elastic doesn't like being worn all-day every day and the elastic in my holster has started to lose its elasticity. Luckily, I can take up the slack with the velcro. I'm also buying a second holster in the hopes that switching between the two will see them both last longer.
