This holster meets all my needs. As a former Army sniper, I've found that this holster does well with all my hunting needs as well as everyday carry. I can get sub second draws just as good with this holster as with my OWB. Great product, shipped fast, and it came with a sticker in the box, which is always cool.
Eidolon Ambi Tall Metal Overhook Full Kit fits G17
As you'd expect from a steel part, these are also incredibly strong. We've had our friends test these by wearing them during aggressive Brazilian Jujitsu practice, during law enforcement weapon-retention classes, and numerous other vigorous physical movements like wrestling, sparring, running, backpacking, and mountain biking. These overhooks won't let go of your belt, even during the most rigorous activities.
*PLEASE NOTE: These overhooks are designed to be used WITH a belt. Also, given the high spring-weight of the overhooks, care must be used when putting on or removing these overhooks from the belt to avoid causing damage to your belt.
The Eidolon is the culmination of over three years of design and development. It is designed to be the most refined and functional inside-the-waistband holster on the market. At the core of the Eidolon is the holster shell. The shell is precisely fitted to the weapon on the inside and is smooth on the outside to work in conjunction with the body, belt, and clothing -in nearly any carry position- to maximize comfort and concealment. At the same time, the shell provides attachment points for a host of accessories to allow the user to tailor the holster for their specific carry needs.
The holster shells feature an innovative, adjustable retention feature that isolates the tension solely on the front of the trigger guard. This provides for an extremely clean “feel” when drawing and holstering - unlike other companies’ adjustable retention holsters which simply compress the holster body along the entire trigger guard and/or frame, resulting in a mushy feel as the pistol drags against the inside of the holster.
All Eidolon holster shells are fully compatible with most extended controls, factory and after-market sights of any height (including suppressor sights), any type of RDS mounted behind the ejection port, and most extended/threaded barrels.
The Eidolon Full Kit gives you all the accessories needed to optimize your holster for either AIWB or IWB carry on nearly any body type. The Eidolon Full kit is a tuckable, versatile, and comprehensive IWB/AIWB holster package that can be used with one or both belt attachments and give you hundreds of potential configuration options. The Full Kit includes:
- One Ambi Tall holster shell fits Glock 17
- One set of Metal Overhooks
- One Tall Spacer for mounting the belt attachment below the trigger guard
- One set of Belt Claws
- One set of wedges
- One set of extension wings
- All needed hardware and full instruction manual
Fit and finish was on par for raven. There were excellent options for hardware and everything fit well. However this holster was uncomfortable compared to a crossbreed or galco iwb. I really was looking forward to getting the eidolon because I like my other raven holster. This one just wasn’t for me. Maybe if you mostly carry aiwb then this is a good holster for you. Also, skip the metal clips, plastic and/or loops are the better option.
