Please share your pocket holster experiences. New LCR 38 SPL will not be carried in a pants/jeans front pocket, but in the outside pocket of winter coat/jacket worn by a woman, and that means the pockets are really small. If you carry your LCR in any of these holsters, please let me know good and bad about them. I am concerned of retention in the pocket and even more concerned about gun retention inside the holster.
DeSantis Nemesis
Galco Pocket Protector
DeSantis Pocket-Tuk (it has a removable clip transforming it to IWB, but will be very unlikely used as a belt gun)
Bianchi Pocket Piece (this one is actually formed and molded for LCR, but also reveals its shape)

I carried my LCR 357 in a Nemesis for years and had no problems. I didn't carry in a coat pocket, but don't know why it wouldn't work. She probably won't be able to one hand draw or get the weapon out of a coat pocket very quickly, but I'm not assuming that is something you are worried about.
I replaced the Nemesis with a Simply Rugged pocket holster and believe that the Simply Rugged is superior to the Nemisis. It seems to have a bit more retention and seems like it will hold up longer. It is made of a stiffer leather. It also has a small pocket to allow you to carry an extra speed strip. Check out the Simply Rugged. Good luck!

I'm still using the Nemesis with my LCR357 and no plans to change for front pocket carry but I did just order a small IWB from Clinger just to have another option. I don't think I'd be comfortable carrying in an open coat pocket. If it is zipped or buttoned that would be better. Might help to post a picture of the jacket.

My Remora fits the LCR .38 well for pocket carry.
Also, I do carry in a jacket pocket when wearing one.
All my jackets do have a zipper closure.
