I used to be a die hard ulti clip fan until I tested out the DCC clips. These clips have superior retention and are easy to get on and take off and do not warp. Best of all they have more rounded edges and are less prone to snagging when brushing up against things. The ulti clip has its place but the locking mechanism is more bulky and has sharper edges than the DCC clips. So far I mainly use these clips on fixed blades when used in either pocket carry or IWB capacity. The clips have a low profile and do not stand out much (unless of course you know what to look for). Buy with confidence.
