This holster has a flat back lined with Velcro and is designed to be mounted to a hard surface like furniture or inside a vehicle. It can also be attached with hardware.
The holster includes the hook side (the rough side) attached to the back of the holster and a loose sheet of adhesive-backed loop (soft side).
WHAT DRAW DO YOU NEED?
Picture this holster as though you are wearing the flat side against your body. If that is how you are going to need it positioned for your draw, eg. inside a jacket pocket on your strong side or on the inside of a vehicle center console that you can draw from the driver's side, then you would need to order the same draw as if you were wearing it on your waistband, ie. order your strong-side draw.
If you are going to attach this holster to a surface away from your body, or facing your body, then mimic or visualize your draw from that position, to figure out where the grip will end up and which side you need the velcro on. Some applications would need an opposite side draw than what you'd get if it was on your body - eg. attached on the outside of a vehicle center console on the drivers side (as shown in the main product pic).
With the gun inserted, a right-hand draw flat-back holster will have the velcro (flat side) on the gun's left side. A left-hand draw holster will have the velcro (flat side) on the gun's right side. Ask us if you need guidance on this.
A NOTE ABOUT RETENTION:
Because of the construction of the holster, there is no adjustable retention or "audible snap" retention. This is impossible when one side of the holster is flat, rather than molded around the gun. There is retention, you just can't tip it upside down, shake it and expect the gun to stay in the holster. So this holster is best suited for hard surfaces or applications where it will remain upright. Many customers do use this holster inside bags and packs, we just want you to be aware of the way the retention is impacted by the flat-back design, so that you can make a good decision about which product is best for you.
For retention that keeps the gun in the holster even when tipped upside down, take a look at the Customizable Velcro Backpack/Purse Holster or the Adhesive Velcro Quick-Ship Holster instead. Those both ship with loose hook and loop velcro sheets, so you can attach as needed. Those also have a lot less kydex material (since they're not designed to be mounted to a surface), so they are better suited for use in bags, packs or pockets.
Choose a stock color or let's make your holster one-of-a-kind (custom is +$30). Just upload your design when placing your order. For best color resolution, we use Arctic White as a kydex base color. We suggest you email us first and let's discuss your ideas or your design before you order, just to make sure it will look amazing!

A heat transfer process infuses the pattern into the kydex, somewhat like a tattoo - very durable and will never wear off! For best color resolution, all patterns are printed onto a light kydex base color (arctic white, grey or tan). The base color is selected to best match the printed pattern. So the edges and inside of the holster will be the base color.

It securely retains the gun in my backpack.
Bought this holster to mount my Glock 9mm in my entry coat closet….
Fit my gun perfectly, & high quality construction.
Great holster (Flatback)....well made...high quality...well worth the wait.
The flatback holster is exactly what I was looking for... a way to carry a G34 with TLR1HL in a Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack shoulder bag. Velcro holds securely on the draw, can be drawn with one hand only. Ordered in White Kydex so I can see into the dark zippered compartment on reholster. Well worth the wait. The extra piece of Velcro included with the holster is a nice touch, could be used to mount under a desk or in a nightstand drawer, assuming you don't have children in the home.
My second order. Fit perfect out of the box, like the first one. Manufacturing and shipping takes longer than usual, but it's understandable given the current climate. Great price to value prop too. Highly recommend this company. Great selection, even for men :)
My hats off to Gun Goddess on a great product. The quality of the holster is a-one. The turnaround time on my order was very acceptable. I definitely recommend it to anyone that is in the market for a new holster.
I was looking for something that I could mount to the side of my nightstand. The holster fit my gun perfectly, and is exactly what I was looking for. Strongly recommend.
