Wear it inside the waistband? Or outside? You decide! Just re-position the clips and you have both options! This holster is molded with the curve already in it, so it conforms to your body. The back of the holster is almost smooth, making it very comfortable even with bigger firearms.
Pick your color or pattern and make it your own - choose a single color or any two colors, one for the front half of the holster, and one for the back! Choose your eyelet color too! Want to really make it your own? Upload your own design for the holster front or back!
Loops: Your holster will include 1.5" injection molded, open belt loop clips. These allow you to attach and remove the holster without removing your belt. You have the option to include additional belt attachments to your order: either closed loops, or wings. View the images.
Cant: The standard holster cant is 10 degrees forward, but you also have the option of zero cant. Zero cant is best for wearing it in the front of your body, eg. appendix or cross draw. The 10 degree cant is best for wearing behind your hip.
Sweat Shield: A full kydex sweat shield is included on the inside of the holster. With models that have a safety, the holster is molded to allow you to carry with the safety on or off.
This is a heat transfer process that infuses the ink into the kydex material, somewhat like a tattoo - very durable and will never wear off! Just upload your design when placing your order. For best color resolution, we recommend Arctic White as a kydex base color. The lighter greys and tans can work too.
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!
For best color results, patterns are printed on a light base such as tan, white or grey (ie. inside & edges of holster will be the base kydex color). The pictured examples are all available, but they're just shown here to give you an idea of what's possible. If you have a design you like, let's discuss making your holster one-of-a-kind!

Limited Return Policy: Due to the highly customized nature of this product, and the very small chance of us being able to resell your holster in your choice of gun model and color combinations, we cannot accept returns on this product unless it's a solid black holster color.
With time and use, regardless of holster make and style, hardware may loosen. Please check and tighten it regularly. We suggest using Loctite or another thread-locker to secure your screws.
Switching the Clips
If you're having trouble lining up the screws with the holes, insert all the screws first and just barely tighten them. Once all screws are inserted and in place, then tighten each one all the way. This will be much easier than doing them one at a time.
What is "cant"?
Cant is the angle the holster holds the gun in relation to your belt line. The standard "FBI" cant is 15 degrees. The higher the cant angle the more the gun leans forward. The lower the angle the more straight up and down the pistol will ride.
If you are wearing your holster in front of your hip, you may prefer a straighter draw. If it’s behind your hip, you may want more of a cant angle. It is all relative to where on your body you plan to position it.
Will my firearm fit a holster designed for a different firearm?
No. Due to the nature of a Kydex holster, the only gun that will fit is the gun they were molded for. The only exception would be if you had a compact version of a full size weapon. i.e. Glock, XDm, or similar family. If you do not know if your smaller gun will fit in a larger holster, please ask before ordering.
Can I remove my flashlight or laser and still use a holster made for them?
No. We use the widest portion of your gun/light to create the retention necessary to keep your firearm in the holster. This is usually found on the light or laser, so if you remove the light or laser there is nothing to click into the holster.
I have aftermarket items installed. Do I need to let you know?
Yes. Please let us know if you have upgraded or changed anything on your gun. There is an "order notes" box during checkout where you can list the changes to you firearm. Even if you do not think it matters, please list the differences to be on the safe side.
Will a Kydex holster damage my gun?
The short answer is no. A correctly built and maintained Kydex holster will not cause excessive wear on your gun. Our manufacturer does not allow Kydex to form into the ejection port when they mold the holsters. Some poorly made kydex holsters and many hybrid holsters utilize the ejection port to achieve retention. This causes the holster to "drag" down the slide of the pistol and could damage the finish. Our holsters use the trigger guard area of the gun to achieve the retention necessary, eliminating the “drag”.
What type of care and maintenance does my Kydex holster require?
Simply keep your holster clean by wiping it down with a clean lint free towel when necessary.
What is Kydex?
KYDEX is a line of thermoplastic acrylic-polyvinyl chloride materials. It has a wide variety of applications, including for firearm holsters and sheaths for knives. KYDEX Thermoplastic Sheet is a registered trademark of KYDEX, LLC, which is the only manufacturer of this material.
What if my holster fits too tight?
All of the IWB holster models have adjustable retention. Simply loosen or tighten the screw(s) at the bottom of the holster to adjust the retention. On the rare occasion the holster is too tight and there is not enough adjustment in the screws at the bottom of the holster, we recommend you do the following:
1. Set the holster's retention at 1/2 its adjustment.
2. Put your gun in a food storage bag (or any thick plastic bag).
3. Insert your gun and bag into the holster.
4. Using a hair dryer (NOT A HEAT GUN) gently warm the sight channel (the top of the holster) of your holster until you feel the holster begin to relax.
5. Allow the holster to cool with the gun and bag still in the holster. Now remove the gun from the bag and adjust the retention to your desired level.

Received my Glock 36 holster today and I love it!! Gun fits great and retention is perfect. I also purchased the wings, I haven't put them on yet but it appears they will really hold the holster close to my body for OWB carry. I love that I can convert this to IWB if I wish! Great product once again GunGoddess!
Comfortable on hip
This is a great holster! It fits my SW Shield 9mm perfectly and feels nice and secure while still maintaining an easy draw.
I love that I can either wear this inside my waistband or outside my waistband. Very comfortable too. Holds my Ruger LC .380 with laser snug, but still easy to extract my gun when or if needed.
I have been looking for a new holster that fits me. Both body and style. And this does it. Fits my pistol perfectly. Love the color and durability. I will come back for more when I can.
