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.
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.
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!!
This product is just perfect. Most holsters I have owned for subcompact pistols add unnecessary bulk to the firearm. I can hardly tell that I’m carrying. I wasn’t sure how well the holster would secure it to my hip but it doesn’t move around at all. 10/10
I didn’t receive two kits only was sent one. The product seemed nice and fit great but only problem it takes just a bump from The side for the firearm To be dislodged. So now looking for one with a sleeve. Thanks for the opportunity to review this product. Editor's note Please contact our customer service if you did not receive your entire order. firstname.lastname@example.org. Your firearm should not come loose from a bump. Please make sure the holster is completely snapped onto your firearm. Again, our customer service department will be happy to assist. Thank you
I've been looking for a very low profile holster for my P365 for maximum concealment, so I purchased the Vanguard 2 with the metal overhook, which is thinner than the plastic overhook. This combination adds the absolute minimum of thickness and allows easy concealment even in shorts and a t-shirt. Retention is excellent and the adjustable ride height and cant allows you to dial the position in perfectly. Much more comfortable for appendix carry than my previous holster. I'm also eagerly awaiting the release of the claw accessory for the P365. Overall, I couldn't be more satisfied with the Vanguard 2 with the metal overhook.
A great versatile holster that offers a great amount of retention so you don't have to worry about it moving around. I have one for my Glock and 365 and they are both great quality.
This holster fits extremely well and gives positive retention on pistol. Its minimalist design is comfortable and allows for use in multiple on body positions as well as in purse options with lanyard. Normally I'm a OWB guy but this holster has changed my mind. Recommend it highly!
