I have had my Wolf Grey colored VanGuard2 for a few months now (I carry a Glock 36) and I have nothing but solid reviews thus far. I typically carry it at the 5 o'clock position and I have also used this hoslter in a Hill People Gear Original Kit Bag and have not been concerned about retention or an accidental discharge in any way. My first impression: that the holster was too pliable was unfounded and I have since convinced others to purchase same. I did remove the provided cordage and used some gutted 550 cord instead.
Limited Edition VanGuard 2 for Glock
Limited Edition Wolf Grey or Coyote with color matched 1.5" overhook and spacer
Available for Glock Gen 3, Gen 4 and Gen 5*
The VanGuard 2 is a minimalist IWB holster. Unlike traditional IWB holsters, the VG2 covers only the trigger guard of your weapon. This unique design eliminates the bulk of a traditional holster, while providing a level of safety and security not attainable by simply sticking a pistol in the waistband of your pants.
The VanGuard 2 can be used multiple ways:
First, it can be used (without the lanyard or the overhook) as a trigger guard cover for storage and transportation safety. This prevents foreign objects from finding their way inside the trigger guard and potentially pressing the trigger, while still allowing the slide to be cycled and the magazine released. This gives users the ability to clear the weapon without the danger of a negligent discharge.
Next, it can be used with the static-line tether for on-body (IWB) or off-body carry (such as inside a bag, purse, briefcase, vehicle console, etc). This allows the weapon to be safely carried with a chambered round without fear of a negligent discharge, while still being rapidly deployable. The holster can also be removed by catching the nose of the holster and prying it off. This allows one-hand deployment of the weapon even if the tether or attachment point fails to remove the holster.
Finally, the user can attach the overhook to create a stable, secure, IWB holster. The complete system is fully adjustable for ride-height and cant, is tuckable for maximum concealment, and fully ambidextrous.

Product is what the company says it is. Excellent product, minimalist design, user friendly.
I think the design of the new belt clip makes the VG2 just about perfect now. I have the model with the loop/snap and it really is a great holster, but the clip option is faster and easier to use by leaps and bounds in my opinion. Because you have to remove the holster from your belt when attaching it to the weapon, the clip makes reholstering a breeze and it still stays exactly where you put it. I use the VG2 more than any other holster I have. This design even makes range practice more pleasant since you're not spending the majority of your time fiddling with a belt loop.
