Info About Optional Calf Strap
The Smith & Wesson - S&W M&P .40 Compact is large and heavy for ankle carry. We recommend buying the optional calf strap with the ankle holster. The calf strap is ergonomically shaped to fit around your upper calf, which distributes the weight of the gun over more area on your leg. Additionally the calf strap prevents the holster from sliding down past your ankle bone due to the weight of the gun. This makes it more comfortable to wear a heavy gun on your ankle.
Some holsters makers are using a shoe insert to support their ankle holster. We've heard from customers that this shoe insert is not comfortable. These customers prefer the Ankle Deputy's padded calf strap system since the calf strap is better at distributing the weight of the gun.
The left handed calf strap is the same as the right handed calf strap but additionally includes an extender that allows left handed users to comfortably rotate the Calf Strap 180 degrees to the opposite side of their leg for left handed use.
With the optional calf strap we also include a cinch strap at no extra charge. The cinch strap holds the gun closer to your leg and provides additional stability while walking.

The Ankle Deputy TM
The Smith & Wesson - S&W M&P .40 Compact is a large gun and will require at least a medium width pant leg to adequately conceal on your ankle. Narrow cut jeans or slacks will cause the gun to show through the pants. If your gun has a long magazine then you'll likely need wide cut pant legs.
Below are some pictures of various styles of pants and a brief description of how well they conceal a large gun on your ankle.

The Ankle Deputy is made by SideFire Holsters in the USA. This ergonomically shaped holster uses medical grade padded laminated fabric around your ankle. This padded fabric uses open celled foam making it breathable. Open celled foam is much more comfortable than closed cell neoprene (neoprene quickly gets sweaty and hot).
The Ankle Deputy has a strong breathable stretch band that wraps around your lower calf and velcros to the other side. It has a leather support sewn on the outside which allows the holster to be angled forward for the best concealment under your pant leg. The holster itself is made from durable ballistic nylon. It is padded and has a soft inner lining to protect the surface of the gun.
The Ankle Deputy will fit about 98% of people out of the box. If you have extra large lower calves, contact us and we can include a free extender.
