So much more secure than the clip. The clip (IWC-C Clip) that came with my holster (The LUX) worked fine in the beginning but the more I used it, the more it would slip when praticing my draw. I'd be standing there pointing a holstered pistol at my target. Lol! The loops may change the posturing of the pistol a little bit but they are by far a more secure option than the clip.
Quick note: I see the picture on the home page has a different clip than I had. AC may have changed their clip design since my original purchase.
Got my Lux extended, Love the holster but when I bought it with the IWB LOOP it only came with one loop attached. I'm no math wizard but that means I needed one loop more. I had to buy a 2 pack for $10. Now I have an extra loop..... The loop itself is fine, it works, it's stiff, and sits the holster high enough for a shooters grip. Would just rather have bought one for 5 or 6 bucks but I'm over it.
They work just as they are supposed to. Easy on, easy off and my gear stays exactly where I put it. No more holster sliding around on my belt.
Love my holster with belt loops. Fast shipping made very well!
