This is our version of the time-tested pancake holster. It is perfect for outside the waistband carry and concealment. It rides high and pulls the gun extremely close to the body. It is like no other OWB Kydex holster on the market today in terms of strength or beauty. As with all of our designs, we remove as much material as possible only leaving what is needed to keep it strong and functional. It is made using .093 Kydex which is slightly thicker than other holsters on the market, but that small increase in thickness makes this holster stronger so we do not need to line the edges with rivets to strengthen it. Of course being made from Kydex, it stays open for one handed re-holstering and with built in weapon retention, the gun locks in tight. It incorporates a small (half) sweat shield that is more of a reholstering aid. We feel that we have developed a Kydex holster that looks as good as it works.
