Product Description

Ava Inside-the-Waistband Holster

Meet Ava - a leather and thermoplastic hybrid made to be worn inside the waistband.  It features a soft, leather back piece that conforms to your shape. The clips are super strong to hold the holster in place with or without a belt.

The back piece is lined with a rich, deep purple suede for comfort. It is also cut down to be smaller than the traditional men's style hybrid holsters, to better fit a woman's body- but guys love the Ava too!

The clips are adjustable and can be raised or lowered to create a total of NINE different cant and depth combinations! 

Left-Hand Draw models - All left-hand draw models are special orders, and may take up to 20 business days to ship. As soon as your order ships, you will receive an email with tracking number (if you add other items to your order, all items will ship together when your holster is ready).

  1. Very Good Product, Fantastic Service

    Posted by G B on 20th Mar 2014

    This holster is well built and works well. It is slightly difficult to place but the more it is used the easier this will be. The service at Gun Goddess is the best. It is definitely 5 stars out of 5, 10 out of 10 or even better than that.

  2. Finally, a comfortable and secure holster for smaller women!!!

    Posted by jenn on 26th Feb 2014

    I couldn't be happier with my purchase of the Ava holster! It is super comfortable, right out of the packaging! I can only imagine that it will become more and more comfortable as time goes by! I forget that I have it on me at times :)

  3. Ava Review

    Posted by Terri McCasland on 4th Jan 2014

    This is my second purchase from Gun Goddess. I purchased this, because I was hoping for less shifting. I have an office job, and wore The Betty. I found that the holster and my Ruger LC380 shifted too often, and can become uncomfortable. The Ava is so comfortable that I sometimes forget I have my gun on me. The only bad thing about this holster is the gun sits loosely in the holster and there is no click to secure the weapon. I have considered heating up the Kydex and compressing it a tad more.

  4. Great Holster

    My husband bought the Ava for my gun and I love it. It is so comfortable that I sometimes forget I have my gun on me. I am telling everyone I know about this holster.

  5. Finally a comfortable IWB

    Posted by Miki on 7th Nov 2013

    I was a little skeptical of this, but no longer. I am short and have difficulty concealing my gun. I bought 2 avas, one for my XDs and one for my M&P Shield. I haven't gotten to use the one for my XDs due to the recall, but I love the one for the Shield. My gun is fully concealed without any poking or discomfort. I highly recommend it.

  6. Great product, great price!!

    This is my second purchase with GG. I purchased this, because I was hoping for less shifting. I have an office job, and wore The Betty. I found that the holster, and my Glock 27 shifted too often, and can become uncomfortable.

    I have worn Ava everyday this week. I am absolutely tickled! This holster has impressive concealment. It is also VERY comfortable! I have forgotten many times that I even had it on. It stays put, and minimal adjusting is required. The one friend in my office who knows I carry (he does, too), asked me if I had stopped carrying, because he couldn't see the pistol at all anymore. He's now thinking of ordering one for himself. He's just trying to get past the purple suede leather. :-)

    If you want to carry discreetly and comfortably, this is an excellent choice!

  7. Ava Review

    Posted by Cindy on 17th Sep 2013

    I bought the Ava for use with a Beretta .25. I am 5"2' and have difficulty comfortably concealing any pistol.

    The Ava is a thinner inside the pant holster that is extremely comfortable right out of the bag.

    The weapon rides higher than other brands of similar style. Because of that, I can position it further forward and more easily accessible for me.

    I have not had any problems with "leather squeak", it is quiet. It seems to conform better than other thicker leather brands which is nice and
    adds to comfort. The metal belt loops are not set in a particular position or angle and only have one pivot point on each side. This is nice because you can move them one side or the other of the loops
    on your pants.

    I have noted two negatives:

    1) When removing the holster, caution is urged. Because there is only one pivot point on each side, It would be easy to rip the bolt through the leather. I would recommend you add a washer on the inside of the holster to distribute any pressure on removal.

    2) The gun sits loosely in the holster and there is no click to secure the weapon. I have considered heating up the plastic and compressing it a tad more.

    Having tested several different types of holsters, I would recommend you give this a try. Unfortunately I can not comment on it's ability or comfort for larger weapons.

  8. Sturdy, comfortable and perfect!

    Posted by Jennifer on 5th Sep 2013

    As my first time carrying concealed, I wanted a holster I could depend on. I read reviews, saw you tube videos and decided on the Ava to hold my Beretta Nano. I thought for sure just like the gun, I would have to try out many before I found that perfect fit.

    Not so, and maybe I got lucky, but the Ava fits in all of my pants comfortably. I can drive, walk, run, and pull the gun with ease and confidence. It is large enough to be smooth against my skin but large enough to make me feel like the gun has a safe place to live when I walk the dogs, hold the kids or carry groceries.

    It is a truly wonderful holster. Thank you!

  9. Very satisfied

    Posted by Michelle on 29th Aug 2013

    I am very satisfied with my Ava holster. Being a very small framed woman I was having trouble finding a holster that fit me, was easy to conceal a weapon on me and that was comfortable until now. I love this holster an highly recommend it. I have a Glock 26 which is isn't easy to conceal when you are small, but this holster made it easier and is great.

  10. Great Holster!

    Posted by Jackie on 13th Aug 2013

    I purchased this to practice my conceal carry with a glock 26. The gun fit perfectly, I love that I don't have to wear a belt with it if I don't want to. It molds great to my curves. Sadly, I decided to go with a Springfield XD-s because its thinner and it doesn't fit this holster right! But I am keeping it in hopes that if I decide to competition shoot I can use it for the bigger glocks! :) Also if I need to conceal carry a bigger gun I will use this hoster.
