This holster is exactly perfect for the P365xl. Its like just stuffing the gun down your pants but much safer!
VanGuard 2 Kit for Sig P365 and P365XL
The VanGuard 2 is a 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 VanGuard 2 can be used multiple ways:
First, it can be used (without the lanyard or the overhook) as a trigger guard cover for storage and transportation safety. This prevents foreign objects from finding their way inside the trigger guard and potentially pressing the trigger, while still allowing the slide to be cycled and the magazine released. This gives users the ability to clear the weapon without the danger of a negligent discharge.
Next, it can be used with the static-line tether for on-body (IWB) or off-body carry (such as inside a bag, purse, briefcase, vehicle console, etc). This allows the weapon to be safely carried with a chambered round without fear of a negligent discharge, while still being rapidly deployable. The holster can also be removed by catching the nose of the holster and prying it off. This allows one-hand deployment of the weapon even if the tether or attachment point fails to remove the holster.
Finally, the user can attach the overhook to create a stable, secure, IWB holster. The complete system is fully adjustable for ride-height and cant, is tuckable for maximum concealment, and fully ambidextrous.
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.
First of all, I really don't know what these are classified as because they really don't fit into the holster category unless you consider they retain your gun until you need it. I do like these little retaining devices. This will be my third one. The plastic device clips onto the trigger guard and the clip affixes to your belt while it is inside your waistband. You don't have the bulk of a leather or kydex holster inside your waistband. If you are considering one of these, the clip is the way to go. Stay away from the models that have a loop that your belt feeds through. The loop style makes it to where you practically have to drop your pants to re-holster your weapon. Raven Concealment only offers these for a handful of gun models and choosing between the clip style or the loop style might not be an option. I do not hate the loop style, I just prefer the clip style a whole lot more to the point I will not buy another model with the loop Also, the only other drawback I can see with this device is if you have an aggressively stippled grip it may be necessary to wear an undershirt to keep from abrading your skin. Minor detail but worth mentioning. It may sound like I don't like these but I do like them. Why else would I buy three of them? What you may loose in the issues listed above you gain in the fact that you don't have to deal with a bulky holster in your pants. Thanks for taking the time my review. Have a blessed day.
Works great and is super comfortable to carry the P365 IWB. Not hot, No running, Fits great and it’s a confident carry. The only comment is it should come standard with the Overhook. The standard hook that it ships with is useless and does not catch on your belt. This is a design improvement that the customer has to pay for rather then having the brand improve the product and just ship the best updated version. Regardless, it’s a great holster that’s not a holster even if you have to pay a bit more to make it right.
VERY pleased with this product. easy to get out of my waistband. helps keep it concealed nicely.
I’ve tried several different holsters for the P365 and the Vanguard 2 is the best by far! It’s like the perfect marriage between pistol & holster. Comfortable minimal & Affordable what else could you ask for thanks Raven Concealment for such an awesome product.
I'm a small framed guy, 5'10", 160 lbs. Concealing my P365 is difficult, even with the smallest of holsters. The Vanguard 2 is hands down the smallest, hence, easiest holster I've ever used on any gun. I can appendix carry, and shift it to the 3 or 4'oclock position no problem. Sitting, walking, standing, it's easier, as no bulk is added to the gun, unlike all other holsters. I'm buying another one of these as a backup. That's how much I like it.
The best and most comfortable holster I’ve ever purchased. Makes carrying appendix easy even for a big guy.
When I received the Vanguard 2 for my Sig Sauer P365, I was disappointed that it did not lock into the front rail because it’s smooth without rails that go into rail slots. If bumped it slides out of position & could come loose. Editor's Note: You are welcome to return the holster for a refund. Please contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org
Minimal design for lighter summertime clothing. Completely covers the trigger. Holds tightly even when active. I'm very pleased.
As a new gun owner I have been challenged to find an IWB holster that I can carry comfortably, I think I found it! I've tried leather, kydex, and even a leader/kydex comno. They all worked great, and I will keep them all for specific events, but I think I have found my everyday carry!
