Many feel, ourselves included, that the USGI M-12 holster is an excellent field holster design. However, when wearing body armor, or a load bearing vest, accessing these holsters, while mounted on the belt, can be difficult. In response to this problem Specter Gear hasdesigned a very effective drop leg extender which allows the holster to hang below the belt, attached to the operator's upper thigh, improving access without sacrificing security.
Specter Gear Drop Leg Extender's main hanger strap is constructed from 3 layers of heavy duty 2" scuba webbing with hook and loop adjustment pads allowing approximately 6" of additional drop adjustment. The vertical hanger strap also features a heavy duty 2" side release buckle which allows for rapid removal or attachment of the holster without having to remove your belt.
The fully adjustable double leg straps are made with comfortable, yet durable, 2" webbing with heavy duty side release buckle closures and heavy duty elastic loops to allow for expansion of the thigh straps during movement. The leg straps also feature 2 rows of imbedded rubber stitching on the inside to prevent shifting and movement of the holster. Both leg straps are removable to allow for easy left or right hand user configuration.
