Athena Inside-the-Waistband Leather Holster

Availability: Order processing time is up to 8 weeks

Product Details

Deep concealability is what the "Athena" inside-the-waistband holster offers. Athena is custom-made, with genuine leather and your choice of thread colors. Rides low enough that the grip of the gun is only 1/4" to 1/2" above the waistband and is available with 4 clip options.

Athena was the Greek goddess of wisdom, warfare, battle strategy, and heroic endeavors.  

Clip Styles:

  • Standard Clip - Straight draw with zero cant, perfect for carrying in front of your hips, appendix or cross-draw.
  • Standard Clip with 15 Degree Forward Cant - This clip position is best if you plan to carry at or behind your hip, from about the 3 o'clock to 5 o'clock positions. 
  • Standard Clip with 15 Degree Reverse Cant - This clip position is an option (personal preference) if you plan to wear the gun on your weak side, and cross-draw. It will angle the grip towards your belly-button instead of away from it.
  • Tuckable Clip - This works well if you wear your shirts tucked in, as it allows your garment to be tucked between the holster and your waistband. 

Designed by a woman, made by a woman, for women (although guys love this style too)!  Made in the USA!

Too tight!

The holster is beautiful, the only problem is that it is too tight. I can’t pull my gun (a Glock 26) out without a struggle, and having to use one hand to hold the holster in place. I read the instructions about loosening it by placing it in a plastic bag - didn’t work. Certainly not what I was expecting.

I waited 8 weeks for this holster and it was worth it. Ordered it for my Rugger 22 but now have an EZ .380. So the only thing I could do was order another one! It’s so soft and now that it’s broken in it is perfect! Can’t wait for my new one to come.

Beautiful, comfortable, performing fit

Not only does GunGoddess have the best customer service available, but this is the 2nd holster I have ordered from them and it’s the best quality of any I’ve owned. Fits my pistol perfectly and comfortable to wear on my petite frame. I’m 5’3” and 108 lbs and I wear this comfortably all day even while driving!


Love my new Athena IWB holster! Fits my gun perfectly! Emailing with Athena to make it perfect and one of a kind was a great and smoothe experience. Will definitely recommend and order again!

Quality Product with attention to details

I really like my holster. I ordered a custom color thread and was a little worried about how it would look. You can barely see the color from a distance (good thing) but it looks custom and attractive up close (also a good thing) for me to enjoy. Gives it just a little girly flare. The fit was a little snug but I followed the instructions and put the weapon in a plastic bag to stretch it slightly and it worked great.
