I needed a simple, slim appendix carry holster that fit my size well. This holster is perfect for all of my needs!... BUT, Raven Concealment, if your listening, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make your hardware out of something more rust resistant. I've been carrying this holster for about a month, and I've started noticing rust on the screws. Other than that, I have no complaints.
Eidolon Holster - Full Kit
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 holster shell of your specification
- Belt attachments of your choice (either overhooks or tuckable soft loops)
- 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
- The Glock 26/19/Universal model has a pass-through open bottom design and will fit any 3rd or 4th Gen. Glock 9mm/.40cal double stack pistol. The holster shell itself is equal in length to a Glock 19 pistol.
- The Glock 17 model has a closed bottom design equal in length to a Glock 17 pistol, but will fit any Glock 26/27/19/23/17/22 3rd or 4th Gen.
- Tuckable Overhook Set: Choose between Overhooks for 1.5" or 1.75" belts. Can be used as a pair or individually. Overhooks offer two ride height positons 5/8” up or down, and approximately 15 degrees of cant adjustment, forward or back.
- Tuckable Soft Loop Set: Can be used as a pair or individually. The polymer struts provide two ride height positions 5/8” up or down and approximately 15 degrees of cant adjustment forward or back. Soft Loops are adjustable, and will fit 1.25”, 1.5”, and 1.75” belts. The soft loop itself mounts in a slot to allow infinite ride height adjustment within the slot envelope. The loop itself can be rotated to allow infinite cant adjustments forward and back. Once tightened down, little nibs in the strut face lock the loop in place and prevent movement. Tuckable Soft Loop sets are a $5.00 upgrade to the Eidolon Full Kit.
- Tall Spacer Block: Used to mount the Overhook below the trigger guard to allow the Overhook to clear the holster shell and adjust for cant.
- Belt Claw Set: This accessory sets the Eidolon apart from all other AIWB holsters on the market. The Belt Claw mounts to the side of the trigger guard area and juts out toward the belt line. As the belt is tightened, it pushes against the Claw and levers the grip of the weapon into the body. The shape of the Claw is designed to blend into the lines of the holster shell for comfort. It also works in conjunction with the angled sight-channel area to allow the holster to conform to the waistline and virtually disappear under cover garments. The serrations on the face of the Claw are meant to “grab” the pants material to minimize holster movement, but are blunted to prevent damage to clothing. Belt Claws come in sets and can be mounted angled up or down to best make contact with the belt line in any cant or configuration for both right and left handed shooters.
- Holster Wedge: Designed to mount to the inside face of the holster shell toward the muzzle end, the Wedge will help lever the top and grip of the weapon into the body and maximize concealment especially in an AIWB configuration. The Eidolon Holster Wedge is optional, and can be removed if not needed. It is made from a special polymer which is soft enough for all day comfort, yet durable to last the lifetime of the holster.
- Extension wings. Allows the user to mount belt accessories further out from the holster if desired.

I love the modular aspect of this holster. Makes it highly customizable and comfortable to wear. I wear it all day even while doing work around the house. The only issue I have is the lack of instructions on how to install each piece and fine tune. Also the screws are very difficult to get to on some pieces and securing them is a chore. I had to use a dime to tighten most of them and still could not achieve the best hold.
Works great, good retention. Many different configurations to adjust to so it will fit comfortably with different body types. I have tried a few but this is a winner.
Conceals excellently, comfortable, worth the money
My glock 19(in the closed 17 Holster) prints less than my 43 does in other holsters. Also very comfortable. I postponed the purchase do to the price, but I wasted more than the cost on other inferior holsters that are made obsolete with this holster. Definitely recommend, especially with the soft loops.
This is by far the best AIWB holster I've ever used. I've been wanting one of these for a few years & I'm really happy with this purchase.
I am a smaller frame guy. I can shoot proficiently with my glock 23 and comfortably with my smaller frame handguns. Naturally my smaller frame guns conceal better on my body. I’ve always felt uncomfortable carrying my glock 23 for fear of printing at any IWB carry position. In comes the Eidolon from RCS. I have never had a holster system that I can achieve 100% concealment of my glock 23 and maintain any level of comfort. The Eidolon achieves both of these. The claw puts perfect pressure on my belt line to draw the weapon close to my body without jabbing it. When wearing the Eidolon I do not have to make any adjustments to the system when going from a standing to a seated position and visa versa. The over all comfort coupled with concealment is top notch. The Eidolon has turned my Glock 23 into my go to platform for everyday carry. As far as pricing is concerned, the Eidolon platform is very competitive when paired up against competing companies. Most companies offer different customizations in color and compatibility on their holster systems. Let’s face it, this is a concealment holster, what is the point of making it flashy and cool. Let the holster serve its purpose and the Eidolon does that and more. The shipping was a breeze and holster is well packaged and simple enough to assemble. Yes there is assembly to the holster system because RCS packaged this system to fit multiple shooter needs. I tailored mine to an AIWB platform but you can easily tailor yours to any IWB carry position. I highly recommend the Eidolon platform as first choice for your concealment needs!
When I first saw this holster I had to try it out. I not big on appendix carry. It works well as an appendix for me. The Eidolon works really well as a strong side carry holster. I fact the over hooks and be adjusted. It makes the holster confortable on my belt. I had someone tell me the holster looked balky. It conceals my Glock 19 really well. I find myself returning to Eidolon after trying different holsters. I like it.
Comfortable, many options, and the soft loop struts are a must! Retention is great too.
I've been using the Eidolon to supplement my carry options since August 2016. The one I ordered came with the OWB quick mount straps, which I ended up not liking at all (they are a pain to fasten and the holster feels less stable). I swapped over to the overhooks and that made all the difference for me. I have a couple other kydex holsters for AIWB carry that I rotate with this one, and the Eidolon has become my go-to option if I feel I don't need/want to carry a spare magazine. The holster is quick to get on and off, and the pad on the inside is a nice option to keep the firearm pressed against your body and out of site. I alternate a G26 and a G19 in this holster on a regular basis with no issues. It's really not pricey either for what you get (custom kydex options can run $130'ish not including shipping/tax). It's a good product for anyone looking to try AIWB carry, or someone who carries this way regularly.
