The BUGBite holster was designed for maximum comfort and concealment. Each holster is designed specifically to conform to the shape of the human leg ensuring that your firearm is supported properly and in a way that allows you to forget you are even carrying a pistol. The BUGBite keeps your firearm properly oriented upwards at all times, and because the design lacks velcro or snaps, removing your pistol when you need it is 100% silent, unlike almost every other type of holster. The holster is designed to comfortably carry pistols from small all the way up to mid-size frame (to confirm your pistol will fit, click here), so you only need one holster that can work with a variety of your firearms.
We ourselves use BUGBite for daily carry and often comment about how we forget that it's even on, of course this “WOW” factor leaves us feeling that this is the greatest holster ever designed!
I just purchased the ankle holster size B. I took it for a test ride, and admittedly before I did, I had my doubts. I have been carrying firearms since 1968 and it was very common for meear an ankle holster even when on duty in the NYPD. Though often cumbersome and frequent cause for concern, especially when walking fast or running; I continued to wear them for concealment purposes. It was at best a "love, hate" relationship though even now at 70 years old and long retired, I continue to wear an ankle holster. (Living in Florida for the past 30 years I can tell you wearing a holster on your body is difficult, and sweaty.
Now I found your holster. OMG I can't believe it. I wore it yesterday with my M&P Shield 9mm, fully loaded and with a spare magazine. Comfortable, no slippage, no adverse sweating, just plain extraordinary. Today, I wore it with my Ruger LCP and spare magazine and forgot it was even there. Best ankle holster I have ever owned, seen or worn. Still as easily accessible as any other ankle holster but far more comfort. A very inventive and creative approach to the problem of concealment. I wish you great success.
Detective, NYPD (Ret)
I just received my Bug Bite Holster.
Oh my God!! this is the most comfortable ankle holster I have ever used.
One thing I like is that it looks like you are wearing and ankle support so if your pants ride up a little, people don't see a barrel or the shape of a holster.
Also, it protects the top of the shoes from damage if they rub on the barrel. In addition to that, you can wear the socks over it to even provide more concealment.
The only issue I have is that you have to put it on and take it off without shoes. But I think it is a small price to pay for the comfort and it not riding down like other holsters.
My holster arrived today so I put it on with my Kahr PM 9 and an extra magazine and did not notice it after about 30 min. Since I work outside in the cold I had long johns on. Tonight I took my pants off and went downstairs in my long johns and my wife said, "oh nice carrying a gun around in the house". I am always concealed so even she never knows. I was totally caught off guard, it is so comfortable I totally forgot it was there. Will definitely be more careful but it just goes to show you how darn comfortable your product is. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!

GREAT SERVICE AND EVEN A BETTER HOLSTER! COMFORTABLE AND YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW IT IS ON! I CARRY A KIMBER MICRO 9 - A LITTLE LARGE BUT NO PROBLEM. I PLAYED SPORTS IN SCHOOL AND HAVE VERY LARGE LOWER LEGS BUT THIS WORKS WELL FOR ME.

For the most part, I like the holster. My calf measurement was at the upper end of size "C", so it's a bit tight. I'm thinking, that with a little wear, it will stretch a bit. I wear it to Sunday church and you can't tell that it's on, with my regular trousers. I couldn't, however, wear it with any trousers with a tighter fit, in the lower leg. I carry a small revolver in it and would like to carry my M&P Shield, but it's still too tight.
This is the only ankle holster I have ever liked. I have tried many and hated all of them until now. The BugBite holster is a truly innovative design. It is comfortable for all day wear and a perfect deep concealment holster. I love it!
Very comfortable. Stays where you put it.
This is my third ankle holster and first Bug Bite. I use it for my Ruger LCP Custom. It is by far the most streamlined, comfortable and easy to draw from of the three. It does not ride down or sweat. If your looking for an ankle holster, look no further this is a winner. I call it my Backup Bug Bite.
By far the best holster I have ever had. Not good with over calf socks but good if roll on glue is used. Ask wife about glue.
The unit works good for the Sig P938 but not much larger weapon than that. I had to return the 1st one and get the next size larger for it to fit my calf properly. (it says that in the sizing instructions). I had originally wanted to carry my full size 9 or 40 cal but it wont do that without causing a problem with printing.
I have owned several ankle type holsters over the years. This is by far the best and most comfortable holster I have had of this type. I like the fact that the pistol is higher on the calf than with the actual "ankle" holsters. This allows me to use this holster while still wearing 8 inch boots without interference with the weapon. I first tried this with a Glock 23 just to test it out. Surprisingly, it fit and fit well. I do not recommend carrying a G23 in this position due to bulk, however this gives an idea of the size weapon that can be accomodated. I use this with a G27 on a regular basis. I was not happy at first with the carry position due to the fact that the butt of the weapon printed heavily on my pants leg. This ended up being my fault, not the holster. The print was caused by the Pearce extension on the mag. Upon switching to an unaltered factory mag, the printing issue was gone. I cannot recommend this holster enough. The material and workmanship are excellent, the fit is terrific and the entire rig is very comfortable (even for all day carry). Top notch.
great fit, comfortable to wear
Holster stays up properly on your leg and keeps my lcr secured in place. The issue, it's not padded enough to keep the wheel on a revolver from digging into my calf, it was very annoying by the end of the day. I stoped using it after the second day due to this. I would probably be a great holster for any small pocket auto, just don't recommend for revolvers.
