A Better & Cheaper IWB Clip? The Warfytr Equipment Fabriclip

Perhaps the bane of carrying IWB is the mounting of the holster to the pant/belts. Often, its a hard choice to go with the inconvenience of loops while getting dressed or the option of drop-on clips that can have (a perhaps undeserved) reputation for failing to retain the holster during a draw stroke. While I have never had a clip malfunction on me, I am cognizant of the forum stories of those who have had them fail.

I know… first world carry problems.

So, coming across the Warfytr Equipment Fabriclip is appealing to me. At first glance, the Fabriclip is a thin, low-profile, flexible, and highly secure clip system. Even better, it does not require the usage of a belt to be secure to the person (hooray for IWB while wearing gym shorts doing yard work).

 

To stay secure, the clip uses two pieces of moldable plastic with opposing tabs that pulls the fabric of your garment into the bottom U. By doing this, it does not require a rigid belt that almost all other clips require.

The Fabriclip is usable and customizable to almost all holster systems on the market with a drill bit and a bit of time. Warfytr shows examples of the clip being used with all other sorts of EDC gear including spare magazines, flashlights, etc.

For those incredulous or interested, trying the Fabriclip is light on the wallet. Retail pricing is a scant $8.

    I’m an adult so I always wear a belt, but this looks like over long term use will destroy fabric unless it’s heavy denim.

      Haha….what a tool! Good luck in your continuing journey through adulthood.

      It is intentionally designed to unlock before tearing clothing or breaking the clip. Metal clips will damage clothing, car seats, etc. but this is made from pliable nylon to prevent that.

    • RUKdnMe

      I think after time even heavy denim will let the inside of that puppy escape through the hole you can see it trying to create…

    • bjensen

      Over the long term most designs will damage fabric, but that (to me) would be a minor concern,

  • Harry’s Holsters

    I’ve been testing one out over the past month. It’s very effective when wearing no belt and beats the ulticlip for everything but tucked in shirts. Everything has it’s place.

    The only bad thing about the fabriclip is that it doesn’t have a standard .5 inch mount spacing and uses hardware and hole size that is much smaller than standard. You can use standard hardware and drill an extra hole to get the proper spacing, but you’ll have to play around with adjusting it.

      Would some kind of magnetic mount sort of like a Jacket Bracket be easier for tucked concealment? that way the inert metal plate on the inside of your pants that the magnets outside your pants grab could have any mounting holes you want, since it’s just plastic dipped steel.

      (only Issue I can think of is if the magnets are so strong you can’t pull your shirt tail out of your pants, so they’d have to be “just right”, and a separate strap would be needed to keep the muzzle end of the holster down around your thigh.)

        That’s an interesting idea. This would add a lot of weight though form a percentage standpoint. If you were to tuck you couldn’t place the shirt tail between the magnets. Also cost would probably be prohibitive and might have some weird issues affecting the draw by attracting the slide. If it’s strong enough to hold the weight of the holster it’s also probably strong enough to attract the slide.

    Why is it I can’t wrap my head around the name of this company?? Last I checked, “War FIGHTERS” Don’t tend to give a $#!+ about concealed carry.. I guess that’s what a Warfytr is, that’s those super secret plain clothes Army boys..

    • roguetechie

      They’re so tactical that they COULD have tactical beards and non regulation haircuts, but they CHOOSE to get the haircut, be clean shaven, and wear combat shirts with baby spitup down the back to Walmart where they will tactically procure tampons (regular or super honey?), Diapers, and chicken breasts (I’m sorry honey I didn’t know that Oprah said chicken breast with the skin on is evil!)

      • noob

        Tampons and maxipads do have a tactical role in any large blowout kit

    The only part I see that I don’t like is the addition of add depth to the holster to accommodate the mounting screws, other than that I have to wonder how long the clip will hold up before becoming brittle and cracking from use, I carry IWB and always wear a belt but my wife doesn’t wear a belt and we’re looking into different IWB methods that may work for her

    • Doug Ralph

      It isn’t made from the typical plastic that can snap. It’s injection molded nylon so it is very flexible with great memory. If you deliberately tried, you could eventually tear it but it doesn’t crack or break. Lifetime warranty.

  • AD

    Looks interesting. Seems a little less “low profile” than some other IWB options I’ve seen, but I think those all rely on having a good belt, this looks like the best option I’ve seen if you have reason to want something that is independent of a belt.

  • Madcap_Magician

    Waiting for the tuckable version…

    • Doug Ralph

      It is fully tuckable. Check out the link.

    Yeah, I don’t care what your product is, you just lost me.

  • Blake

    Yeah this really isn’t adaptable to almost all holsters on the market, in fact it’s compatible with almost none. You have to have a 1/8″ extrusion in order to not have the mounting screws cut the shit out of your gun. If it were readily adaptable to a standard holster I’d be really interested.

    • Doug Ralph

      You are correct. It is not a drop in solution. It is intended for other holster companies or gear makers to use.

  • Wow!

    I just put an order. This is definitely something I and possibly others can use if it works as advertised.

  • bjensen

    I like the concept and while I realize that the majority of the general public is oblivious to most everything going on around them, to me this just sticks out like a sore thumb, far more obvious that “something” is there then the ulticlip, which I’ve found works fine without a belt for the most part. There are also other options for belt-less use, including the ulticlip and “sticky” type holsters, along with standard metal clips (that work best with thicker fabric)
