Comp-Tac is now offering the option to buy spare leather backings! They can be purchased with or without clips and are a great addition to your growing collection of spare Kydex bodies.
IMPORTANT NOTICE! We no longer offer Kydex Bodies for Generation 1 leather backings. If your MTAC was purchased between April to September of 2010, please read below.
Identifying Which Generation Backing You Have:
The Generation 2 backing was introduced in April of 2010 and fully implemented in September 2010. If your MTAC was purchased before April 2010, you have a Gen1 MTAC. The Gen1 sweat shield measures at 1.75”"-2" across. The Gen2 has a wider sweat shield that measures 2.25" across.
The MTAC Leather Backing is a 2-ply leather backing made to be as comfortable as possible for IWB carry. It is cant adjustable and the clips are interchangeable with other Comp-Tac clips we offer. Backings can be switched with Spare Bodies to make one holster fit a wide variety of guns.
Additional Clips and Styles Can Be Purchased on Our Holster Parts and Hardware Page:
Standard Clips: A “P” shaped clip that slides over the top of the belt and hooks underneath. Holster may be put on while belt is already threaded through loops. Not recommended for nylon belts.
C-Clip: A “C” shaped clip that grips the belt at the top and bottom. The belt must be fed through clips while putting it on. These clips have less visible surface area showing during concealment. C-clips work with all types of belts, ideal for nylon.
V-Clip: Clips slide over the waistband of pants and attach to hook on inside of belt. Holster attaches before belt is put on through pant loops. V-clips offer the highest level of concealment with no part of the clip visible outside of the pants. The loop is provided with these clips. The easiest way to attach this clip is to a belt with the loop already sewn on. Please see Comp-Tac Kydex Reinforced Loop Belt for this option.
Thread On Clip: The Thread On Clip is a completely solid clip that the belt must be slide through when putting on. The Thread On clips are recommended for belts that are less than 1/4" thick.
Leather is natural product with unique characteristics that differ from hide to hide. Due to these differences shade and color variations are to be expected. This is not a fault or flaw in leather, Comp-Tac uses genuine natural top grain cow-hide to make all of our Comp-Tac leather products.
Returns/ Exchanges: Due to the cosmetic vulnerability of leather, Comp-Tac reserves the right to charge a 20% restocking fee on any leather returns or exchanges that are deemed to be damaged or abused.
