Good fit and finish. Clearly good quality. I love the minimalist/low profile nature of this holster. Comfortable standing and seated.
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.
This little holster works great and is super durable. Extremely comfortable!
I have a vanguard for a Glock 26 with the loop and snap. I have loved that holster, but just recently purchased the p365 and the vanguard 2 with the newer clip. Not impressed and wish I could have the loop for this one too. I just don't feel it is as secure and have done quick draws several times the entire holster comes out. Now looking for a different holster. Editor's Note: Please make sure the overhook is going completely over your belt. We hate to see our holsters not being used. Please contact our customer service. We do have a soft loop that will work with your VanGuard holster. firstname.lastname@example.org
Pretty awesome little deal. Small holster for a small pistol. Easy appendix carry and works well for side carry when I'm driving or on the motorcycle. I'm 6'1" 185 and was wearing a t shirt and shorts all weekend with little to no imprint.
This is the most low profile you can get, less to take up space in your waistband equals more comfortable. I like that I can clear my gun or load the chamber with the trigger covered. Esthetically I like to be able to see my gun when it is in its holster too. Works well for my lifestyle.
Perfect fit, well constructed, and makes my P365 easily concealable. Fast shipping
I have one for my Glock and my P365. As a retired military guy, and minimalist, this is the perfect holster for me. Can't recommend enough.
Great IWB holster. Super retention and is actually more comfortable than my custom horse hide IWB holster! Great job!
Same great attachment and retention as my Glock 19 VG2's for the P365. Allows for a very compact concealable package. Raven sits at the top of their field in holster applications!
I first started using the Vanguard 2 about a year ago for my Glock 19/26. It has become the only holster I use for Concealed carry. I find the minimalist holster to be the perfect fit for day to day carry. I have tried several other brands and its not that I didn’t like them its just that the Vanguard just seems to ride better and print less for me. I recently purchased the Sig P365 and when I started to research for holsters for the P365 I found the Raven Concealment had started making a Vanguard to fit the P365 so I immediately order one and haven’t looked back since. The only advice I would give if you purchase this Holster is to pull the screws out on put a drop of Loctite on them and screw them back in. I haven’t had any issues at all with the screws backing out after doing this . I like these holsters so much I buy them for gifts from time to time.
