The CZ P01 model is a compact, aluminum-framed 9mm originally designed for LE and Military duty. It’s perfect for discreet carry, due to its reduced weight and its forged alloy frame. And a sleek, compact model like the CZ P01, deserves only an equally nice CZ P01 holster.
CZ P01 Holster Quick Pick
I recently tested and compared up to 9 different models and have settled on the Barsony Leather Holster as my top recommendation.
It simply gives my CZ P01 the best fit and offers me the most comfort. It is lightweight and made out of premium cowhide leather with high precision stitching. Plus it even comes with a matching single magazine pouch.
What To Consider When Choosing the Best CZ P01 Holster
Whether you see yourself as a novice shooter or a well experienced expert in firearm, choosing the perfect holster for you often means trying out lots of different types first.
To help you out, here are some tips you might want to know of before deciding on a holster:
Carry your firearm with confidence
You’re already aware that guns can be uncomfortable, heavy and require a lot of commitment. But by choosing a top holster manufacturer, you can make carrying your firearm a more comfortable and safer experience.
Wearing your CZ P01 with ease and comfort will help you carry with more confidence
The material of the holster is important
The two most popular choices are leather and molded plastic holsters. Unlike the thermoplastic ones, the leather ones do require some break-in period to become fully comfortable.
However, when it comes to overall comfort, leather would be your top choice.
IWB Holsters offer maximum concealability
A general rule is that if you want to use an IWB holster, you should get pants that are 2 inches bigger in the waist. They come in both leather and Kydex and some models can be worn outside the pants, inside the belt.
OWB Holsters is the most popular choice for comfort
This type of holsters is typically worn from 2 to 6 o’clock, but can also be worn as a crossdraw, from 9 to 11 o’clock. They are generally great for people to spend a lot of time sitting.
The crossdraw way is a great choice for those that spend most of their time in the day seated and may have to draw from that position.
With pocket carry holsters, you lose the use of one pocket entirely
Even though you won’t be able to keep any keys, phone or money in that pocket anymore, these are a great choice for days when you don’t wear a belt.
Shoulder rigs are extremely comfortable
They are also excellent at concealing, even though they have the same disadvantages as the crossdraw ones.
Ankle holsters can be both super comfortable and painful
The comfort they offer depends on the amount of padding, whether the gun rests on your ankle bone and how tightly the gun is strapped. Those are best for small-framed weapons.
You can hide your gun in plain sight
You can always purchase a purse, backpack or an attaché with a hidden holster inside. Those need to be used with precaution since they are not the safest option, since they can be easily stolen or can be reached by your kids, but are great at concealing.
There are some unusual CCW methods for unusual situations
These can be anything unusual like Belly bands, fanny packs, thigh holsters, jackets with hidden pockets, day planners, underwear holsters and Kleenex boxes.
Those are a great solution for the days when you have to attend some event or go to a place (the beach) where your normal everyday holster doesn’t work well with concealing.
