VanGuard 2 Holster - Advanced Kit

Current stock: 0

Fits Gen 3, Gen 4 and Gen 5 Glock 9m/40/357 Pistols.and Glock 44  Does not fit the Glock 42/43/43x or 48.

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, 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.

*Does not fit the Glock 42 or Glock 43

Does its job.

I’m skinny and tall. I carry in the appendix position. This does a great job. I would recommend for people of similar build. 165 lbs and 6’1”.

Vanguard 2 advanced kit

Excellent product! Very secure trigger guard holster. Is not bulky or cumbersome, puts your mind at ease knowing all is secure. Very fast shipping after purchase, received product in a few days. Would buy again and would recommend to anyone interested in this product. Thank you rcsgear for this wonderful solution.

Vanguard 2

I’ve owned several of these and currently have one for my Glock 45 and my Sig P365. Best AIWB holster I have used and I’ve tried plenty. Holds tight, moves naturally with body and comfortable to wear al day, even with larger pistols. Save time and money and give this a shot before others. Only downside is reholstering since you have to remove it, but obviously not a huge concern since if you are drawing from this the you know what has hit the fan anyways.

Great concept!! But.....

Great concept but the holster I received performed poorly. I’m very glad I was on the range training with this holster before ever relying on it as my carry holster. First draw was terrible, the retention was to tight for the strength of clip and snapped. Went straight in the trash. My advice save the packaging so u can do a return if u run into the same issues. But definitely worth a try and assuming it does work for u it will be well worth the money. Editor's Note: Sorry to hear you had a problem with our VanGuard holster. We would be happy to work out any problems you may have with our holster in the future. There are a few things that can cause a tight fit with the VanGuard holster. You are always welcome to contact our customer service department at I will issue a refund to your credit card for the cost of the VanGuard holster.

Best Conceal on the market

Saw Colion Noir review this holster and was intrigued by it. got it and was impressed by how slim and concealable it is with my G19, comfortable to wear all day, the wing tucks it tight against my belly and has absolutely no printing. Only good for Daily concealed carry as reholstering requires you to take it completely off your belt. Best CC holster I’ve had so far!

Great Product!

These vanguard holsters are excellent products. The best way to go for maximum concealment without placing your weapon in obscure hard to get place. Highly recommended product!

High quality, does not come off my belt and it is easy to access my firearm. If you looking for the lowest profile holster this is it.

Awesome product

This is the perfect holster if you want to feel like you’re not wearing a holster at all—that’s the whole point. I ordered the advanced kit with a metal clip as well, but have just ended up using the plastic belt clip. If you have a good sturdy belt, I’ve had no problems drawing and having the holster come with it like others have said. I have even been able to draw from sweatpants with no issues. This is not a holster for those who want to practice drawing and re-holstering a bunch. This is aimed at those who want a reliable carry holster with minimal bulk. I personally love this thing and find it much more comfortable to wear than a Kydex holster.

Vanguard2 review

Hands down best holster I have had. I was worried that because of it being so minimal that it was gonna move around alot in day to day activities. Nope, this holster the moment you put it on becomes a part of you. This is the only appendix style holster I can actually go to dinner and comfortably sit down with or drive in a car with. I would definitely purchase this again. There is only one issue that o have found, when I draw the fore arm because of how tight the holster holds the gun it's actually pretty difficult pulling the firearm out with one hand. It doesnt really look like there is a way to loosen it to correct that. Regardless I would still buy this again. Editor's note: Thank you for your review. If you leave your firearm in the holster for a few days, the material will relax. This will loosen the retention.
