Unveiling Vanguard 2’s Distinctiveness 

The Gear Tester (TGT) opens up with “There are a lot of holsters on this table. We’ve got leather holsters, kydex holsters, and retention holsters like this Safariland. But in this video, I want to talk about this little trigger guard holster, the Raven Concealment Vanguard 2.”

Here, TGT commences, expressing his broad view of holsters, and keenly introduces the star of his review, the Raven Concealment Vanguard 2.

He describes it as “a universal holster for the Glock double stacked handguns” that fits a range of models due to similar trigger dimensions.

Flexibility & Versatility

What makes Vanguard 2 stand out vividly is its universal match with different Glock models. In The Gear Tester’s words:

“What I like about the Vanguard 2 is that it fits my 10 mil, my Glock 19s, & my Glock 26… So it’s a holster that, if I have this one holster, I can use it with all these guns.”

This holster becomes a one-size-fits-all solution.

Personal Experience and Usage

He recalls how he found value in Vanguard 2 due to its flexibility and comfort in combative firearm usage. For three years, he attached it to his Hill People Gear kit bag for safe and easy firearm accessibility during various outdoor activities. His regard for Vanguard 2 grew significantly when he encountered an obstacle – he noticed that many holsters did not fit his Glock equipped with RMR, except for the Raven Concealment Vanguard 2. He was even forced to resort to alternative holster options while waiting for others to arrive.

The Gear Tester openly admitted his reluctance to use the Vanguard 2 for larger, heavier Glock models. However, he highly advocated for what he calls a “simple and universal” system that you can try for about 50 bucks.

He lavishes praise on the claw system as a fantastic addition deeming it “a good addition… definitely worth the money” that enhances comfort, concealability, and functionality.
