Firstly, you must practice with this holster (unloaded and cleared) to fully appreciate and become comfortable with the design and the intentions of the engineers. Review for P365 Vangard VG2 with Claw This holster addresses my biggest issues with other concealed carry holsters. - Printing - Comfort I really like how close this holster fits to my body, eliminating discomfort from a tight belt. The claw brings the grip and 12 round magazine against my body (FBI carry at 4:30 with forward cant). The Vangard offers a more positive lock to the Firearm when holstered than my normal preference on an adjustable design, but this is welcome given the small and unique size. The holster does not cover the magazine release, but instead protects it from accidentally depressing it. I load the magazine and chamber a round, then holster and refill the magazine (12+1), so access to the mag release while holstered is important to me. My p365 is equipped with a manual safety, I wanted this feature specifically for this type of carry. The Vangard does not interfere with the manual safety. I would like the kit to include a belt loop in addition to the belt hook. I would also like the holster to have an adjustable tension screw as i worry about it loosening up over time. This is a niche holster and with my limited use, I like it very much. It is my normal wear now with my Tulster as a backup. Good luck and be safe!
Vanguard 2 Holster - Advanced Kit for Sig P365 and Sig P365XL
Fits Sig Sauer P365 and P365XL. May not fit Non Factory Grip Modules
The VanGuard 2 Advanced Kit is a capability upgrade to our venerable VanGuard 2 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 VG2 Advanced Kit’s inclusion of the RCS CLAW takes this system’s concealability to the next level, by leveraging the grip of the pistol close to the body, while still allowing for a clean, repeatable draw.
The VanGuard 2 Advanced Kit with the RCS CLAW can be equipped with either a Tuckable strut with overhook or Tuckable strut with soft loop, (Soft loop not included) to allow you to choose the best belt interface system for your carry and mission type. This combination is adjustable for ride-height and cant, is fully ambidextrous, and is the ultimate in deep concealment technology when combined with our proprietary tuckable struts.
Please note that the VG2 Advanced kit is not compatible with the Basic Kit Strut or the Lanyard option. VG2 CLAWs are only compatibe with the model of VG2 shell specified. For example, a Glock VG2 CLAW will NOT fit a M&P VG2 holster shell.
Please be aware, we do not advise attempting to re-holster the weapon while the VG2 is inside your clothing. You should remove the VG2 and install it on the weapon outside of your waistband.
