About the Fabriclip™:
Touted as a favorite for beltless IWB (inside the waistband) carry (think leggings, skirts, sweatpants, or your everyday pants, sans belt), the Fabriclip™ from Warfyter Equipment provides a unique and versatile solution to a common quandary.
It is important to note, per the manufacturer’s website, that you should “not lock the Fabriclip™ to the outside of belts or clothing. It may unlock if used incorrectly. If not wearing the Fabriclip™ behind a belt, we recommend a sturdy, good-fitting waistband or drawstring that can securely hold the weight of your gun and holster.”
One of the challenges of using the Fabriclip™ is that, while you may be tempted to stick it on any old pair of pants, you have to ensure that your waistband is up to the task. You don’t want your holster sagging or flipping outside of your waistband due to the weight of the gun — and you certainly don’t want your pants falling down, either! So while no belt is necessary for a secure hold, you still need to wear the right bottoms.

What does the wing do?
Warfyter has developed a proprietary wing to be used in conjunction with the Fabriclip™, using the same drill holes. The wing adds surface area to the holster, allowing more area to press against the inside of your waistband and hugging it in tighter to your body. The wing is reversible and is compatible with both a right- and left-hand holster. They offer their “standard wing” and also a “t-bar wing” depending on the spacing of the holes in your holster. Per their website, “The standard wing works with vertical hole spacing from .3” to .75” & the t-bar wing fits horizontal holes from .75″ to 1″ wide.”

Note from the author: There used to be a disclaimer on Warfyter’s website that the Fabriclip™ was designed to fail (break, or otherwise detach) before ripping clothing. We intended to share this disclaimer here, but the source is no longer available. It is unknown if this is due to their own website changes, or if the Fabriclip™ 2.0 has been redesigned to negate the risk.
