I was skeptical of how well this would work and boy was I surprised. It works amazingly well. Securely holds and helps with not printing in snug shirts
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.
Low profile holster to go with a low profile concealable firearm. It protects the trigger and the firearm is secure. I love not having the added bulk of a full holster.
Outstanding hold and so small that you don't feel the weight or bulk of a standard IWB Holster. Will buy the Vanguard for my other weapons that they have available. A+++
Everything I read (all the positives) was spot on. Very happy with the holster and gives me full confidence that the trigger is protected.
I recently purchased the Vanguard 2 for my Sig P365XL. I received it in the mail in record time! It was at my doorstep within just a couple of days. Showed up 2 days early even! The product itself has been a dream. AIWB all day everyday and its the most comfortable and sleek holster I've had with any IWB holster. Easy on and off with all my belts and pants. Have even carried to the mailbox and back a few time in sweatpants without a problem. Firearm separates from the Vanguard just as expected. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try a minimalist style carry.
I love this minimalistic holster. I hate holsters in general and had a hard time carrying consistently before this holster. If you hate carrying anything more than the bare minimum and are in relatively fit shape then this is the holster for you. I wish RC could develop the claw for the P365 kit. I’d buy it in a second.
Recieved shortly, happy with it. Will be ordering shortly for p320.
Picked this up for wearing with dress clothes. Honestly didn't expect much and was completely surprised with how great this is and such a minimalist design. I was further surprised the retention it has on my pistol. I'm going to pick up a couple for gifts. Will purchase more from them in the future. Worth more than it costs.
Really enjoy the simple but elegant holster. Can adjust it for a variety of carry positions and options. Now...if they only would add a claw to the P365 version...hint, hint.
Received the vanguard for my p365 and have carried with it for 3 weeks and it works great. I had carried my g26 in one for the last couple of years and loved it!! Never an issue, great retention on firearm and belt. Actually the clip works well on just about every garment. Only problem is sweat, but thats just part of life. For casual carry with complete functional minimalism I couldn't recommend this holster enough!!
