Independence IWB - Inside Waist Band (IWB) Kydex Holster with an attached weapon light. Light bearing kydex holsters require the use of the weapon light to have any retention. Worn inside the pants with a belt, recommended for discrete and low profile concealed carry in any position on the body. Belt hardware is positioned at a slight forward cant, using soft snap loops for a very secure, yet comfortable feel. Special thanks to Glen at Independence Training for his help in fine tuning this design, with all of his experience and time put in to carrying one just like this. Adjustable Retention for a custom draw and feel.
Cant: Refers to the angle of the gun vs your belt line. The soft snap loops gives you the ability to adjust your cant somewhat, but it is in a slight, 10 degree forward angle to aid in conceal-ability and draw.
ModWing: The optional ModWing is a standalone piece of concealment-enhancing hardware. It allows a user’s belt to apply additional leverage by rotating the holster and the grip of the gun towards the user’s body, creating better concealment and less user “printing” of the firearm and holster.
Sweat Guard: The sweat guard is the part of the inside of the holster that extends from above the trigger guard to the top back of the slide. The sweat guard not only protects the firearm from sweat, oils, and clothing, but some shooters find it aids in the re-holstering of the firearm. Our standard on this style holster is a High Sweat guard, unless we feel the selected gun/option needs a lower one due to slide details, optic cuts, safeties or slide lock levels. Because we mold our holsters with training replicas, the safely is in the fire position.
Optic / Threaded Barrel Cut: Slide mounted optics need a slimmer sweat guard and lower mounted clip in order to fit correctly. Threaded Barrels require the bottom of the holster to be opened more than usual to be able to pass through. Select which options you would like for your holster. Holsters can always be sent back and altered if you add an optic/barrel in the future.
Belt Loops: For this particular IWB holster, we use two (2) soft loops mounted in reverse, to wrap your belt and snap in place. It features an easy on-and-off function, but they are secure roll snaps so expect to break them in a little. a vailabel in black and coyote.
