I had never heard of Aker before so I was a little weary of buying this holster at first. This holster was a bit stiff at first and took longer than usual to break in, but once it is broken in properly, it works very well. Good draw and easy reholstering. It is very comfortable and secure. Materials are high quality leather. While it is large holster, it makes it easier to conceal your sidearm/light, esp. with a sportscoat or covering garment. I highly recommend this holster.
