The BUGBite holster was designed for maximum comfort and concealment. Each holster is designed specifically to conform to the shape of the human leg ensuring that your firearm is supported properly and in a way that allows you to forget you are even carrying a pistol. The BUGBite keeps your firearm properly oriented upwards at all times, and because the design lacks velcro or snaps, removing your pistol when you need it is 100% silent, unlike almost every other type of holster. The holster is designed to comfortably carry pistols from small all the way up to mid-size frame so you only need one holster that can work with a variety of your firearms.
Our size chart is a guide to help you select the best size. BUGBite holsters are made of a light breathable Neoprene that has a snug stretchy comfortable fit. The size chart is a good guide but much like any garment regardless of what size you are, fit is a matter of personal preference and can vary depending on how a leg is shaped, how muscular the calf is or not.
If you are right between sizes. If your measurement falls between two sizes, we suggest going up in size. Fit is in part a matter of personal preference, if when you receive your order you feel a different size would be a better and more comfortable fit, please let us know and we will be happy to help with an exchange.

Got this because of the reviews and they are correct. Purchased this for a .38 bodyguard and it is so comfortable you quickly forget you have it on. Certain pants prove to be difficult to raise over for access although not all pants have this issue. Great product.
This is my 2nd Bugbite, do to exercising my leg got bigger so I needed to go up 1 size. There are also some improvements to the holster that make it a lot better. An enlarged zipper retainer, an improved zipper, and the addition of a magazine retention strap. Well done Bugbite !!!
Let me start by saying "I HATE ANKLE HOLSTERS!" I never thought I'd ever own another after my first experience with one. However this is more of a calf-holster and I must say it is pure Genius! I hiked 5 miles, with my LCP 2 and other than it being a bit warm on the calf, I hardly knew it was there. Now, if only there was a supportive but cooler material... I would love to Beta Test one for you. (Hint, hint) Thank You!
The holster is comfortable and it can hold several both my Beretta Tomcat and my Walther PPK. When it finally does wear out, I will get another.
So I am not going to say anything bad about the holster. It was made well , and honestly I'm impressed with it . However there is something I want to share . The gun rides high, and if I wear this as intended it prints to bad for me at work. I'm wearing boot cut Jean's (buckle blacks) not 511 baggy pants . So I'm concealing a ruger lcp 2 without the pinky extension, I'm wearing it on a job site while I walk allot and going up and down ladders ,so I'm pushing this bad boy. Anyway I really tried it and wore it a little lower than intended but it would simply slide down every so often . I'm going to keep the holster because when i wear it at the proper height it is very comfortable, and on the weekends I dont really care if I print. Good luck guys , just think about if the gun being literally on the side of your calf being a problem before you get your Hope's up. *** Thank you for your honest review. Concealing a firearm in this location may not be ideal for all types of pants and as you say, when you wore the holster in a way that it was not intended it did not fuction. We recommend an ankle holster for any gun owner who prefers to wear their holster lower. The BUGBite is simply meant to be an alternative option to that location. Thanks for taking the time to write a review!***
Most excellent product! I've only used a couple of other ankle holsters over the years and this is the best. My (ex)runner legs takes the A size and it fits snug. Can't say that I forget I'm wearing it but it is a very close description. The firearm is a very small .32 auto with extra magazine which is held securely. Easy to unholster the pistol, and a bit of a struggle to get out the spare mag because of the velcro keeper. A Sig 365 also fits but I would not use the holster for that pistol for EDC. Like the heavy nylon zipper with the velcro tab capture. Have not done any extreme testing; running, tumbling, etc but for what I do it works.
Very comfortable ,most of the time almost forget it's there , would highly recommend it
Can be used for a variety of guns, tried my Bond Arms and a Smith and Wesson snub nose and worked on both. Comfortable and easy to adjust curious to see how long it lasts, but if i can get a year or two out if its worth the price IMO. Happy with it so far
Conceals well and stays in place
