Ordered this product(• LightDraw™ OWB ) for my Kel Tec 9mm. Perfect fit. The best OWB I have ever purchased.
I love this holster. It keeps my weapon close against me so that if you didn't already know I was carrying, you'd never see it. It's very comfortable. One small problem...women's belts are 1.25 inches wide and the pancake loops are 1.5. That causes a fair slip when I draw. Looking for a solution to this ***VH COMMENT*** Tracy, thanks for the great review. We currently offer our belt clips in 1.5" and 1.75" but we will work on getting some other size options in the future. Thanks for your feedback it is very helpful!
I received my holster from Vedder about a week ago for my Glock 19. The Retention is Fantastic, its very light and my Glock 19 draws super smooth. I could not be more pleased with the workmanship and will shop Vedder Holsters again.
I received my black Light Draw OWB for my Glock 26 a week ago and it is a very comfortable holster indeed. The construction and finish is really nice and you can tell it is put together very well. The weight is almost non existent and the retention is second to none. This is my second holster from Vedder (I also have the Light Tuck IWB) and I am pretty sure I will keep buying from them as time goes on. Cant say enough about the customer service also. I have had a few written conversations with Kaitlin and she has always been responsive, helpful and professional. Made in the USA! Well done Vedder! Well done!
Two thumbs up. Owb for my CZ-75. Great fit. Pistol clicks in and draw is smooth. Great customer service. Purchased a new pistol and had a pistol course planned for a week later. Vedder made the holster and had it to me in 4 days.
The Holster itself is great and is one of the few that are made that can accept a FNX .45 Tactical Pistol. However, the downside is the holster itself rides too high. If you are accustom to using a holster that rides lower (like me) this is not for you. ***VH COMMENT*** We apologize that the holster is not going to work out for you, we do offer a 30 day return/exchange policy and we are more than happy to assist with this. Please let us know if you have any questions at all as we are to assist in any way we can.
What can I say another great holster from Vedder. got it for a Glock 43 holds the gun nicely very comfortable to ware all day. very well made. like all Vedder holsters.
I own a few Vedder Holster, both inside and outside the waistband styles for different style pistols. They are great products at a reasonable price. I am very happy with the quality and comfort. I will continue to purchase Vedder Holsters in the future.
My first kydex holster and am extremely pleased. It is everything Vedder Holsters said it would be. I highly recommend the OWB LIGHTDRAW Holster.
I ordered this holster in hot pink for my new Walther PPQ M2. I ordered on the evening of 3/15 and received 3/22! No 4 wk wait time, and great quality? Imagine that! After many YouTube and forum reviews, this is just what I expected. It sits so close to the body that you may almost forget you're carrying! I couldn't be more pleased! Oh! Get the pancake wings!
I bought this for my Glock 21, not realizing that it fit so close to my side that I could actually carry the weapon concealed, by just wearing a longer length jacket. The quality is superb, and I can wear it for hours and almost forget it's there. I'am waiting for my fourth Vedder holster to arrive, and most likely will order others in the future. I recommended Vedder to one of the officers in my department. He liked it so well he order a second for his Glock 19. Excellent quality, attention to detail, and friendly courteous service, make this a top notch company to do business with.
Have thoroughly enjoyed this holster. Works great, super retention, very comfortable to wear. Has a very well-made feel to it, not flimsy at all. Will definitely buy other Vedder holsters for my other pistols!
LightDraw OWB holster works great with my Sig Sauer p320, It carries tight to my body and fits my P320 like a glove. Plus, you know your firearm is secure because of that audible click when you holster it. Also it's easy to conceal for a OWB holster. This is my second Vedders Holster and I highly reccomend them! You won' t be sorry!
good quality. works as advertised.
I Ordered The LightDraw OWB Holster For My Glock 21. Being A Large Pistol I Was Concerned With How The Holster Would Support The Weight. The Answer...Perfectly. With The Butterfly Belt Loops The Holster Fits Comfortably And Snugly Against My Waist. Great Product Vedder.
I ordered the light draw owb, it fits comfortably and my pistol fits perfectly. It's the perfect fit!
First, this is not my first Kydex holster--not by a long shot. I too have the boxes of holsters that are not quite right. I have waited many months for big named "bird" holsters and they have not a thing on Vedder. I found Vedder by seeking a holster for a Walther Q5. Few could do it. Vedder could in any goofy colors I pick AND got it to me in a week. Fit, finish, function surpassed any Kydex I have ever purchased. The retention required no adjustment was absolutely perfect. The Premium Pancake Clips upgrade pulled it in tighter than could be believed and conceals under a mid weight t-shirt 100%. This is a EDC holster and will never see the box in the closet!
This is the best OWB holster I have ever owned, I like how it carries nice and tight to the body,it is by fare the best one on the market today. The quality is second to none I will be recommending your product to all of my CCW friends.
Great quality holster. Fits my PPQ M2 perfectly with that satisfying click so i know its secure. Went with the optional premium belt clips that hug a little tighter to my waist for a better fit.
Fit and finish is excellent. The most comfortable holster I own
I live in california. Ordered the Lighttuck on Monday and received on Friday. Never had such phenomenal service. Took out holster, inserter my PCR, turned upside down, fell out. Tightened retention screw 1.5 turns. Turned upside down again and perfect. Could not be happier.
This is my second one ,just a different color. Right out of the bag this fits my Glock 23 perfect. They can make one for virtually any Firearm, most any color combinations. The Female that I have de.the with more than one time is very helpful, I just can't think of anything I would ask them to improve upon.
I've just started carrying, and after reading and researching I was not expecting to find the right holster on the first try. However, the Vedder website made it very easy and intuitive to order the holster with the needed options. The holster itself is very comfortable; I barely notice that I have it on. I was concerned about sitting down resulting in my fire arm digging into my side, but I don't have that problem at all. The holster clings to my hip tightly, with little printing. The quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. I am completely satisfied with every aspect of this holster and have already recommended Vedder holsters to my friends. I will definitely order from Vedder holsters again.
Service was as promised and the holster fits and functions perfectly. I've already ordered another for IWB to give myself another carry option. I can recommend these holsters without any doubt as to their quality/function.
The Vedder holster for my XD MOD 2 service model fits like a glove, every detail on this holster is perfect and with the pancake belt clips option, it's worth it. Now time to order the IWB for my XDS.
Just recently got the Light Draw OWB in the mail. Couldn't be more satisfied. I did the research because I want to avoid that drawer full of holsters I hear others talk about. It is perfect for the range and it conceals my G19 very well. My Light Tuck is awesome as well with my G43. Great gear at a fair price with fast shipping. Vedder is THE BEST!
did a lot of research on YouTube and saw so many great reviews I had to give it a shot and I'm glad I did. Got this for my XD Mod2 Service Model, also had them make it with "0" Cant and it snaps in nice and spent a little extra for the pancake clips and I'm glad I did! Also comes with an amazing Vedder Bag. Thank you guys!
This is the first holster that I have purchased from Vedder and it is by far the best that I personally own and probably the best value out there respectively. I had to purchase a holster for a relatively new handgun that wasn't on their list but the previous version of it fits this particular model. I had to do one minor alteration to allow for the ambi manual safety that's on my pistol but that doesn't take anything away from Vedder since it wasn't the specific handgun I own that they used for the holsters mold. There is absolutely nothing I dislike about these holsters and it's a bonus they have to many color combinations.
Well made holster and fits my gun perfect and delivery time was outstanding
This is my 3rd holster from Vedder. What a great product, as with all others I've bought. Flat to the.body, fit n finish is beautiful. I opted for the upgraded loops and they work good. Buy with confidence.
I purchased the Light Draw OWB Holster for my Glock 23 Gen 4 with Crimson Trace Laser Grip and Tru-Glo TFO Night Sights. My gun fits perfect and looks bad ass with the Graveyard Night Pattern. I will definitely be buying more holsters from Vedder! Customer service is the best and Kaitlin answered all of my questions that I had before my purchase! Two Thumbs Up!!
This is the best fitting OWB holster that I have ever used. It is lightweight and hugs you hip. Great retention straight out of the box. I will definitely be getting more holsters from Vedder for my other pistols.
I ordered this holster for my S&W M&P 9mm Shield Laserguard. I LOVE everything about this holster. Its comfortable, looks great, feels great, etc. I have other holsters but none are as nice as this one. I like this holster so much I just ordered an IWB Kydex holster from Vedder.
This is my first Vedder Holster. I purchased this after returning the stock holster from the firearm manufacturer because I wanted better concealment. I purchased the Light Draw, Black Carbon Fiber, with the Pancake Clips option and I'm very happy with this. I walked around the house for days with my firearm and my wife couldn't tell that I was carrying. I had an issue with the retention screw: at the tension I preferred, the screw was wobbly. Called customer support, they sent me a free return shipping label. A week later I had my holster back and everything feels just great! Would recommend this product.
I work overseas and work in both high profile and low profile conditions. This holster works great on my battle belt and also conceals excellent with the pancake clips when I need to conceal my weapon. The retention screw is an excellent addition to the kydex holster and the pancake clips are a much have for anyone buying this product. I am constently getting in and out of vehicles and running around and my gear takes a beating, this product has held up great with not even a scratch. Vedder has my business as well as many of my fellow colleagues.
This is my third holster from Vedder. I have two light tucks and now a light draw. I chose the black carbon fiber look for all three. I like the adjustable tension and holster cant. All three holsters fit well, have good retention, and allow for lightning fast draws. They were all shipped within 3 business days. They all arrive with their own little bag for storage. This is a real touch of class. I can't recommend Vedder more highly. In addition, it's a family business making products in the USA. What more can I say!
I've tried many kydex and leather owb holsters, and the lightdraw is by far the best. Light, durable, and made from high quality materials. My full size M&P 9 rides very securely and comfortably in this holster. I'll definitely buy more of these holsters for other guns in the future. Thanks Vedders!
I was amazed at how easily I could conceal my Glock 19 under just an un-tucked button up shirt. I opted for the pancake belt loops, and was surprised to find the regular belt loops in the package as well. I ordered battleship grey front and black back, and I love the look! The offset ears on the standard belt loops allows for even more adjustability. I ended up using a standard loop on the front of the holster, and a pancake loop on the rear, and it works just great. Truly don't know that the gun is there. Very happy with my new holster, and have already recommended them to my brother!
I just finished writing my review on my last order, and let me say this: Vedder Holsters are addictive to me. I have IWB and OWB, and even though I love my two IWB LightTucks (one for each SIG) and the QuickDraw for my SIG320Subcompact, this Light Draw is the coolest holster. I've only worn it for ten minutes, and been practicing my draw, and this reminds me of the Askins Avenger I used to wear back in the 1970s-1980s, with one major difference: adjustable height, which I love. By the way, when I ordered the optional pancake loops, I was surprised that you guys had already installed them for me, and put the original loops in a plastic bag inside my holster. The detail of the customer service from Vedder is beyond my greatest expectations, and it's obvious that you care for repeat business as a primary goal. Thank you again for what you do...you're geniuses. Another thing: You shipped this holster on Friday, and I got it on Tuesday...First Class Mail!
This is a great OWB carry for my M&P shield 9mm. It sits close to the body and is covered very easily. I love the click you get when it is secured inside the holster. This is the second holster I bought from Vedder and the only holsters I'll be buying from here on out.
I am a repeat customer many times over. I have never been disappointed with this company or their great products. I will ONLY buy from Vedder for all my holster and magazine holder needs. Outstanding quality and durability and a plethora of unique style and color options to choose from makes this company a first, last, and always "go-to" for me. You can't go wrong with Vedder.
I'm so impressed with my new holster. I bought the LightDraw OWB for my Walther PPS M2 pistol. The fit is perfect and it is so lightweight and comfortable to wear, I hardly know it's there. The retention was perfect for me right out of the box, but it still has a retention screw to modify it to your own preference. I have another Kydex Hybrid holster that I paid virtually the same amount of money for and there is no comparison on functionality and comfort. The LightDraw wins hands down without question. Lastly, the product is very high quality and looks great, although no one will ever see it when you carry. I'd recommend Vedder Holsters to anyone in the market for a "carry all day, everyday" holster. Top it off with unbelievable value for the money and you can't go wrong!
If you just are really having trouble with a IWB concealment holster but are carrying every day you will really love this Light Draw holster. With the Walther PPS M2 it does not show like my other holsters, it is very secure, it tucks in very close to the body, when I set down it does not catch on the arm of the chair, it is so comfortable. I added the premium pancake clips and the mossy oak break-up infinity and not only the best feeling holster I have, it looks so good I want to open carry now ha ha the mossy oak break-up infinity is a true good looking color. 10% forward cant. It feels so natural every time I draw and re holster,I am wearing it at 3 and 4 o'clock. It is worth every penny I paid for it to get this kind of comfort and not having to worry or think about it the whole day... Thank you, Campjeep
Best ever. This is the best . No disappointment
The quality and worksmanship of the light draw is amazing. Every edge is smooth so the holster does not dig into my side or mar my firearms. I ordered the g23 holster and my g26 also fits the holster snug. I live in the pacific Nw so we get a lot of rain. I am able to conceal this holster and my firearm easily with a hoodie or light weight coat. Holster fits snug to my body with the pancake clips. Thanks vedder!
This is my second Vedder holster and it won't be my last After purchasing a Light tuck IWB for the summer months I decided to purchase their light draw for the cooler months when I wear a jacket or flannel shirt I cannot say enough about these two holsters The quality of workmanship and material can't be beat When I holster my 9mm Shield and hear that snap I know it's secure and I am ready for whatever the day brings In less you want a drawer full of holsters that you do not use purchase a "VEDDER " first.
Attention to detail is second to none. Best quality holster. The different patterns and colors are very well done.
Ordered this for a CZ97BD Vedder being one of the few companies making a holser for this model, it arrived in less than a week firearm fit perfect, retention works well and it's very comfortable to wear.
Absolutely love this holster! It's so well made. Fits perfectly and I'm never going to buy another brand of holster again. The difference from my lay holster is unreal. This keeps my G17 so close to my body even being an owb holster. Completely impressed! Will be buying again!
I bought a couple of holsters from someone else and sent both back. The fit was not right. I'm not sure how I learned of Vedder but once I did I watched several reveiws on YouTube. Everyone seemed to speak very highly of your product. After receiving mine I understand why. MY 9MM fits perfectly, no adjustment needed at all. These are very well made and I'm telling you I don't believe you will get a better fit. One other thing is they have a huge selection of colors,and designs you can choose from. I'm very happy with your purchase and I can absolutely recommend their products.
I went with the flat dark earth color and the optional pancake wings on my holster. The holster holds the weapon securely and rides high and close to the body. It is easy to conceal and quite comfortable. My only regret is I should have went with the Blood Red Carbon color.
Was looking to get a nice custom holster for my ppq m2 but didn't want to wait almost a month to get it, orders here got in less than a week the holster is exellent super nice draw and all edges are nice and smooth no sharp edges very nice product, you won't be disappointed! :)
A++++++++. Love it
I got the lightdraw owb with the pancake clips at a 10 degree cant for my Glock 43 and love it. The retention adjustment is great and the pancake clips keep it tight to my body. It also came with the standard clips to switch out. The holster is also small enough to conceal wearing a regular t- shirt. Will definitely get my holsters from Vedder from now on.
First off , I think I received this custom holster with in a week . I must say this thing hugs like a teddy bear . For an owb it conceals like an iwb . This thing is made to perfection . All the edges are smooth and rounded . There's no rattle or play . I ordered the Neptune kryptec on the outside . I must say it's the most badass print I've seen . Just make sure you invest in a belt like from S.O.E. Just want to say thank you for making Quality equipment . I just hope I never have to use it . God Bless you guys .
Vedder makes a fantastic OWB holster. Gun fits snug. Easy to draw. Great product
Mine looked great--quality of materials and construction. Problem was it had waaaaaaaaay too much play in it. The retention screw didn't address that. It had at least 1/8" or more slack up and down, and side to side. My pistol rattled in the holster. Tried increasing the tension screw and it still rattled almost as much but was so tight you couldn't remove the pistol. Took a few minutes with my heat gun to fix it. If I didn't own a heat gun, I would have sent the product back and asked for a replacement. Again, besides the fit, the holster was/is very well constructed. **VH COMMENT** I am so sorry to hear that you had an issue with the fit of your holster. Each of our holsters are handcrafted to fit the precise gun model listed. Sometimes fit issues can be from minor differences between gun models as even slight differences can cause an improper fit, but we are happy to work with you to get you a holster that meets your needs.

I normally don't write reviews but i have to say i am extremely pleased with my purchase from vedder. I searched for a good holster for months and after reading positive reviews from vedder i decided to try them out. The quality is top notch as well as the workmanship. I only purchase hk firearms so it can be difficult to find accessories for them. The firearm fits perfectly and is very comfortable to wear and siuts my needs perfectly. They have every holster imaginable and their turn around time is less than a week which is amazing for a custom holster. The couple of questions i had were answered very quickly by Kaitlen and she is fantastic to deal with. My only complaint is that i wish they had magazine pouches for sale as wanted to purchase one but unfortunately they do not. I won't buy a holster anywhere else and vedder will always have my business. If your on the fence about their products i strongly suggest you try them out. They are definitely a great company making a grwat product. They get a 5 star review from me.
Holds gun great, easy to pull gun out, fit waist perfect.
Just got this holster a few days ago and so far wearing it it's very comfortable. There are no sharp corners or anything protruding to poke into your side even while driving. The 10% forward can't also when drawing and makes it accessible also while sitting. I had originally picked a different color and emailed the company after it was placed they had a speedy response and we're very helpful and changed the color to kryptec mandrake which looks great and I received it a few days later. The shape of the mold is perfect for my styer m40 a1 and holds it securely with no rattle.
I've been around guns and gear for many, many years and am so impressed with the quality of Vedder holsters that I purchased two more for another carry gun. My holster selections were the LightDraw OWB and the LightTuck IWB. Both exhibit exceptional workmanship and are very lightweight. The fit for the gun is perfect and the retention is great... very positive and very secure. I have the black carbon fiber finish on the LightDraw holster and it looks fantastic. The holsters arrived in a timely manner and they are everything that Vedder describes them as. I highly recommend Vedder holsters.
So, I needed to get a holster for my daughter's Sig P320SC with the rail. After hours turned to days and days turned to weeks I finally found Vedder Holsters. They were the only ones that had the OWB holster that fit that gun in the style I wanted for my little girl. Thank You. So, got the holster in about 9 days, which is not bad considering he had to ship it from Florida to Guam. Fit and Finish are superb, great retention and smooth edges. The hardware is on point and in my girls favorite color. "Purple" Thanks again Vedder Holsters. You'll be getting more of my business.
Thanks Vedder, love my holster for my Sig 290, and it arrived quickly to the hose, thank you.
Received the OWB Holster a little over a week ago and it fits my Springfield XD9 Mod2 great, good retention and snug fit against my waist, hardly any printing. Customer service was outstanding with assisting me with my initial questions on style, color and design. Highly recommend Vedder Holsters.
Great quality and service. Thanks Vedder
Have 3 OWB and 1 IWB Vedder holsters and all are the best Holsters I have.. They have great retention and are adjustable if needed. They hold tight to the body and will make great conceal holsters Thanks Vedder you are the best....
This is a great, very well made product. Extremely happy with my whole purhase. Supe quality product, fits my gun like a glove, shipping was amzingl F A S T..... Happy camper!
This the second holster I've ordered for an H&K VP9; the first being the LightTuck IWB. I ordered the LightDraw OWB for use at the range and weekend concealed carry or other times when I can wear an untucked shirt. Admittedly, I prefer the OWB option and this holster, with the pancake clips keeps the weapon tightly concealed against the body and fits the weapon like a glove. I am thoroughly impressed by the workmanship and customer service of Vedder Holsters and recommend them highly.
Great craftsmanship high quality material would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good OWB holster for concealed carry in the colder months.
Good holster, great material, perfect fit and at a reasonable price. Best part is you don't have to wait weeks or months to get it. Ordered late in the week and it delivered within a week, can't beat that.
This my 3rd Vedder holster. I have 2 comfort tucks for my Shield and EMP, this one's for a different style of carrying my EMP. Gained some weight and was getting uncomfortable with IWB holsters. Love the quality of all their holsters, but the Lightdraw OWB is just stunning. All the edges are polished and the retention is perfect.
Very happy with the holster. Absolutely perfect fit for my sig scorpion 1911. Edges perfectly rounded, craftsmanship was impeccable. This is my second vedder holster, and this cements the fact that I will only be buying vedder from here on. My only complaint, and it is strictly cosmetic, is that the desert tan color is a little off from what I was expecting. However that is a very minor issue and does not matter in the big picture.
I saw the Vedder line of holster while watching a youtube video and though "wow, that looks like a great holster". I promptly found their website and checked out their line of CCW holsters. I carry a large frame Glock 41 which isnt the easiest gun to conceal. Ive carried in Texas since 1996 and have tried pretty much every way to carry. Ive settled on a longer tailed shirt and dont tuck it in. I carry in the 4 oclock position and outside my waistband. I carry everyday... all day. You wont every find my gun in the truck. This is absolutely the best holster Ive ever owned. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about every day concealed carry.......If you arent serious... I would suggest that in light of the times that we live in, you should get serious. Oh yess, I purchased the Lightdraw OWB with the pancake belt loops. It really hugs your body.
Great holster and great service best kydex holster being made today!
I've always used leather. I've changed my mind. The fit and function of the kydek, in my opinion, allows for less printing and quicker reholstering. It is lighter and can be reconfigured to wear several ways. They shipped quickly and discretely. The one time I needed customer service the response was quick and 100% satisfactory. There was no issue with the product just a learning curve on my part. I will order from Vedder again.
I could not be pleased more with the whole experience with this company and the great product they support. My OD green carbon fiber OWB holster for my Glock 21 with an extended barrel fit perfectly, FROM THE TIME OF PLACING THE ORDER I HAD THE HOLSTER IN HAND IN 2 days! It does not get any better than that, made in the USA family business can't get any better, if you choose to support this company you will not be disappointed.
My Springfield 1911 RO compact fits nicely snug to the Light draw OWN holster. The gun does not move once is in the holster, is very thin perfect for concealment under a coat or jacket. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because I'm not to fond of the square design, but I'll sacrifice.
The quality of the holster is not a question. Fit and function is phenomenal. Comfort is situational and is different for everyone who wears it. For me, the sweat shield digs in me a bit when I sit. I honestly am not sure yet if I plan on keeping the holster as it shows under my untucked shirt along the rear of the slide. If the holster rode a bit lower and was a bit more snug higher up, I believe this would be a way to fix the issue. I think a 15* can't would also lend a bit better concealment. If all of this is possible, I believe it would be an unbelievable holster. I have mine for a Walther PPS M2 which isn't a very thick pistol. I have only had this a week and I am trying to give it a real chance.
This is my third holster from Vedder, first OWB. Quality again is top of the line. No one makes a better holster and for the price and quick shipping, it can't be beat. I added the pancake clips which is a must.
This is my second holster from Vedder. Just as awesome as the first one. I got the pancake clips and this holster just hugs my body with them with zero gap. Also could not ask for a better fit, the CZ SP-01 just slips into the holster with no effort and has the perfect amount of retention (no fighting to get it out, but will not fall out even when shaking it upside down). Its amazing to me that Vedder can get a perfect holster out in a few days while other companies have weeks to months of wait time for a holster that is no better. I will definitely be returning for more!
Great holster very durable, can conceal XDM 3.8 45ACP with just untucked shirt. Hugs the body great with the pancake clips! Fast shipping, great to do business with.
An exceptionally well crafted holster, showing the foresight that is a bench mark for Vedder quality built products. This is my second Vedder Holster, the other being an IWB style. The quality and fit of that one is surprisingly the same in my new Light Draw holster. Add extremely fast shipping to the quality products, and there's not much more you could ask for. Beyond that, the customer interaction and service is beyond compare. Thanks to Vedder, I can now empty my drawer of all the other holsters that I couldn't or wouldn't use. Thanks for a great product and company. Bob K.
My second holster from Vedder and more to buy later. A flawless fit and did not have to make any adjustments. They do know how to make it better than anyone else.
I have ordered five holsters from Vedder in the last six months. Each order has shipped within three days of my request. The quality, fit and design of the holsters are only matched by their prompt processing of the order. Vedder is a leader in service performance and their quality is on par with the best kydex holster manufacturers available today.
Outstanding construction. Great color scheme(police blue). Showed to several of my LEO friends, they were very impressed.
I am very pleased with the OWB, this is my third purchase! Holster has great quality and is comfortable as an EDC. Highly recommend to others. Plus delivery was outstanding, from time of order to on my waist was @one and half weeks!
Fit my CC like a glove, right out of the box. Adjustable retention is a plus. Holds CC close to body & so is barely noticeable with an untucked shirt. I wish somebody would make a kydex cellphone holster of this quality.
This is my first OWB kydex holster and I can say I see no reason to go back to leather. I have a fairly slim build and I can almost almost totally hide my 9mm M&P Shield under a T-shirt with the pancake clips! With a hoodie or a baseball jersey it absolutely disappears. My favorite part was NOT waiting the 2-6 weeks most other holster companies advertise. No other company seems to offer custom configurations with such a quick turn around. I'll definitely be coming back for some of my other pistols in the future.
Once again I'm impressed with the product and it's quality, short build times and fast shipping! Thank you Vedder!
First let me say I ordered just before a holiday and still received it in a timely manner. Fit & finish second to none. Holster fits Glock 27 w/ TLR 6 perfectly, great retention. Order the Pancake Clips you wont regret it. I will certainly order from Vedder again.
After a detailed search for a good quality compact OWB holster I found Vedder. I watched as many YouTube video reviews as I could but could never find any pictures of videos of the LightDraw holster with the M&P Shield. I contacted Vedder and they sent a picture of the Shield in the LightDraw, they only had one picture as well. I decided to take the chance on Vedder and ordered a black carbon fiber LightDraw. I am very please with the holster. It is quality holster. I would recommend Vedder Holsters to anyone. The fit and finish is of the highest standard and the adjustable retention is a added benefit. Thanks Vedder.
Great fit my Walther PPQ. I ordered mine with the pancake loops it holds the the pistol close to my body, concealable with light jacket. They even give you the standard loops. Nice!!! I hope Vedder comes out with a paddle style soon, when they do i will have one.
I have a LiteDraw holster for each of my carry guns. These are the most comfortable holsters I have ever used and for an OWB it conceals as well as most IWB. I highly recommend this holster!!!
The holster rides and fits comfortably. The gun feels very secure in the holster without a strap or buckle. The holster is light weight and durable. One improvement I woulld make is for the holster to be held down in some fashion so it does not rise up when you pull the gun from it.
I have gone through my fair share of holsters (Uncle Mike's, Alien Gear, Galco) and I personally couldn't be more pleased with the Lightdraw OWB for external concealed carry. As I have heard advertised, a cinch of the gun belt will indeed suck the holster to your waist. It's naturally form-fitting. Simply put a jacket or loose plaid shirt over top and you're in business. As a skinny lanky guy, it is not the easiest for me to achieve effective concealment, but this holster makes it easy with anything thicker than a light garment. Holstering gives you a confident "click", as an indentation in the trigger guard helps with retention. Jog, jump, twist your waist, try anything and your gun will stay put. Driving? Not a problem. The holster stays out of the way and leaves you without that big bump you have to sit on when working with a small-of-back holster. Get it with the forward tilt and safely drawing while seated is a relatively painless task. I'm currently using it for my Glock 27, and would highly recommend it to anyone who is on the fence about trying out OWB concealed carry. Keep doing what you're doing Vedder!
Holster fits my Baretta Nano 9 perfectly. It is made from top notch materials, and rides high and tight to body. Best holster i have ever purchased. Gun slides into holster smoothly and locks into place with great retention. *****
This is the 4th holster I have purchased from Vedder and, like the others, it is an outstanding product. I will not purchase any other brand from any other company. This product and this company have surpassed all of my expectations - they offer a high quality, American-made product that they stake their reputation on, and they back it up with exceptional customer service! You cannot go wrong here!
This holster is great, with only one exception. When using the "pancake style belt loops on the holster, with the correct width belt, the holster likes to slide back and forth on my belt. The design falls between the belt loops of my pants, causing me to continually adjust the holster. I wish there was a some type of holster lock that would prevent this. Anyway, the holster fits my Glock 43 like a glove and is very comfortable for all day wear (with the only exception listed above). I do recommend that others check this holster line out though.
Really good easy solid holster. You won't be sorry
Guns & Gadgets on YouTube recommended Vedder Holsters. I have bought two and am very pleased with the fit and finish. I have bought OWB and like that ride very close to the body make them concealable under a shirt, sport coat or vest.
I have two of these holsters, one for each carry gun. I can carry a larger pistol and don't even know I am wearing it. If you aren't sure, try one, you will not be disappointed!!!
Excellent holster. Well worth the money. Fits my gun perfect. This is my 4th purchase.
4.5 is more closer. The wife loves it. Not a complete 5 because it was supposed to be light draw and I had to warm it up and loosen it a little.
This is my 6th Vedder holster I've purchased. As with the others, I couldn't be happier. I have placed 3 separate orders with Vedder and all 3 orders have arrived within 2-3 days from me placing the order. One order I needed next day and they even accommodated that. Vedder Holsters is easy to work with and it's c/s is the best. The holster is made of the highest quality material. They're even better than my $140 G-Code holster I ordered cause I didn't know about Vedder at the time. I ordered this for my G19 Gen3 in Kryptek Typhoon and it looks as cool as it is sturdy. Style and comfort can't be beat. You won't go wrong with either their IWB, pocket locker or OWB holsters.
I had purchased a competitors owb and waited 6 weeks for delivery, the product was great the wait time is ridiculous I don't like loaning companies my money to make a product. So after researching Vedder, I called to ask wait time, when they told me ships in 2 days I placed the order. It is an excellent owb holster that hides my g43 and is so comfortable you forget. You are packing. I highly recommend this company and its products to all gun enthusiast .
For starters I was very impressed with the Vedder Customer Service. I ordered my holster and it was shipped with in 2 days of my order. I received a tracking number for the order. I checked the tracking and it was priority mail. I didn't receive my holsterling for 3 days so I checked the tracking. It stated the holstereo was in Florida. I contacted Vedder Customer Service. They respond immediately and refunded the shipping. A few days later I received my holster. As for the product, I was impressed with the holster. It was a tight fit and snapped into the holster. The kydex is thick, fit is excellent, and adjustable retention. I ordered the pancake clips for a tighter fit to the body and the fit is perfect. Vedder Holsters is an excellent company with a great quality product and great cusome service. This was my first Vedder Holster and I plan to utilize Vedder exclusively from now on.
Quality and comfort. I made a mistake in my order. (My Fault) I wanted to add the Pancake clips but clicked the wrong button. The next day I realized what I had done and called their Phone number. They answer their phone. Took care of me right away. Great customer service. I went with standard shipping and on the fifth day it was at my door on the West Coast. Again, no complaints here.
I now own three of these OWB LightDraw holsters. Most recently I got one for my Glock 19 Gen 4 handgun. I also have one each for my Glock 22 and my Beretta Nano (with LaserGuard). "Love" is an often overused term, but I LOVE this product. I have gone from being an occasional carrier to carrying every day. These holsters make it easy. Even with my larger caliber weapon this holster is comfortably low profile and readily concealable. 'Imprinting' is minimal. There is no more need to search for the perfect holster!
It was nice to find a company that made a holster for the CZ 75 compact , to be honest it is a clone (Tristar c-100) . The fit and finish is very good , quite comfortable to wear all day . I have only one complaint , and that is there is no choice of height for the sweat shield , although mine is very comfortable , choice's are nice . Well done Vedder .
Having bought two Light Tuck IWB`s for Glock 17 and 1911, I was looking for an OWB holster for my Glock 40 MOS with tall suppressor sights and a Burris Fastfire. I just received my new Light Tuck OWB in Forest Digital and am very happy with the outstanding fit of my weapon, the quality of work, and the price. Not to mention how fast I got it! I ordered it with pancake wings and received the regular belt loops too. As soon as I strapped it on and holstered my Glock 40, I knew it was a perfect fit. I`m 62, carried since I was a teenager and I have a BIG box full of holsters, I have made my own holsters out of leather and Kydex out of frustration. No more thank goodness, I found Vedder Holsters and they will be my source of holsters from now on. I have several "famous" name brand holsters that are actually made in Mexico, although I like most of their design, every time I got one I had to spend an hour or so deburring and polishing the edges of the Kydex because I actually lost some skin practicing my draw. So I appreciate that Vedder polishes the edges exceptionally well. The details count when you use a holster daily. I truly enjoy these holsters, Thank you Mike Vedder for outstanding products.
Very satisfied with the purchase! The holster is "as advertised", lightweight and comfortable. Easily concealed - it sucks up to my side and does not imprint. Currently used for my Beretta Nano with LaserGuard. Fit is perfect. I WILL be a return customer.
Could not be happier, well made , and ware's well . shipping time was FAST!! sig ( 225 A1 )
I was a police officer for over 30 years. For the last 22 or so years, I worked in plainclothes divisions. I have carried a handgun on my person daily for over 33 years now. I was always looking for the next "best holster." I have used good quality leather holsters and thought that was what I liked best, until several years ago, when I was introduced to Kydex holsters. I found that this was the best type of holster for me, but every one I tried lacked something. Some were comfortable, but offered no retention; others had fairly good retention, but were very uncomfortable to wear. Still others offered fairly good retention and were passably comfortable, but just did not conceal worth a flip. Then I found Vedders Holsters. I could not believe it! A comfortable-to-wear Kydex holster with excellent pistol retention, and it concealed perfectly! AND......with the "Pancake wings" installed on the "Light Draw" holster, it sucked up even closer to the body and concealed even better! Instantly, I found the best holster for daily concealed carry that I have ever seen. I have purchased several other, name-brand, quality Kydex holsters in my search for the perfect holster, but until I discovered the "Light Draw" OWB holster from Vedder's Holsters, I found myself always looking for more....for something better. Well, now I have found it.....the "something better." I truly believe I have finally found the perfect holster for me. I now own three of the Light Draw OWB holsters, and I will have more shortly. I plan on having one for each one of the different size pistols I own, and I hope someday, my revolvers as well (hint, hint!) I just don't see how a holster could possibly be any better than the Vedders Holsters Light Draw OWB. I have finally discovered "holster nirvana!" This is my holster for life!
I ordered a Vedder Lightdraw Holster for my P99 and received it in a week which included the Memorial Day Holiday. That was very quick service. The holster is as well made as it looks and fits my gun like a glove. The pancake clips pull it right next to my body and are a must if you choose this holster. Thanks for a great product.
Wearing it now, Ive had 3-4 holsters for my current carry gun Para 1911 executive carry, and have done what most people do try this or that to discover what is truly a good carry option, i purchased this lightdraw owb with the upgraded clips, first impression was excellent nice product nice fitment , but putting it on clinced the deal excellent holster fits well draws well, holds and covers the gun perfectly, and is very concealable, crap now I have to get a couple more for my other guns, seriously this is an excellent holster and i will be getting more, and I own holsters from 40.00 to over 400.00 and will carry this one most of the time. I always believed the leather was more supple and would provide more comfort but what I have found out is that the belt and holster are more important than the gun when it comes to concealed carry... Thanks
First time to have OWB holster, since I purchased iwb from Vedder before and I love it. I knew it will be nice too. Well it was, fits perfect to my body my Kimber solo fits perfect. Great job Vedder!
I recommend Lightdraw OWB to ALL off duty officers and conceal carry gun owner. I'm a Marine, Ret., of 20 years and a full time law enforcement officer of 20+ years, I am proud to own and wear a quality well made American product. /s/ Cyrus.
Bought this holster for my G 30sf... fits very well, looks good for kydex and holds the weapon in tight to the body. I do think that the "wing type" pancake clips should come standard, but over all well done.
This holster hugs against you with the pancake loops, and has a nice positive "click" when holstering. Very well made, with polished edges and a perfect molding for my FNS 9c. I certainly recommend to friends and family.
I got one for my two Walthers, a PPS M2 9mm and a PPQ M2 45. Both fit the pistols perfectly, the retention was also just about perfect - right out of the box- with a satisfying little "snick" going in or out, plus the Kydex over the trigger and guard covers them precisely to the edge, making the holsters into an extra "safety." The weight and bulk were minimal for a holster with a 2-point belt attachment, and the holster formed up to my body very well for minimal printing. I did order the extra cost belt loops and think they were well worth the small cost. Overall, I think that these are excellent holsters at reasonable prices. I don't know if it would be possible, but I would like it if one were able to vary the pistol angle just a bit; that would make these warrant a six-star rating, rather than a five.
I would have to say that, I was very happy with this holster. I ask this company to make a(graveyard) holster for my Springfield XDM 4.5. 45 Cal, And it turns out to be a beautiful peace of work. The LIGHTDRAW OWB holster fits very good on my side. The pancake clips helps to spread out the weight of the gun and sometimes I forget that it's on my side.
So, this is my first Kydex holster, and so far I love it! Ive had Bianchi, DeSantis, and a few Galcos and Uncle Mikes in the past, and have to say, I love the Vedder. Glad I picked Vedder, and the other day at the range I seriously had several people come up and ask what brand it is... I Just ordered a second one for a different gun, in Kryptek Mandrake... The holster arrived with a cool little bag and a nice little letter from Vedder... Ive tweeted, instagramed and facebooked images of my holster.. and will do so again when the new one arrives.. Very proud to carry a Vedder holster.
This is my second Vedder holster and was purchased for a Sig P320 Compact in .45ACP. It fits the firearm perfectly, and the workmanship and finish top notch as is the sturdier feel of the thicker Kydex. I fully intend to purchase additional Vedder holsters for my other firearms.
This holster hugs your side feels really good distribute the weight of your pistol on your side, really like the adjustment screw on the snap lock. getting ready to order another one.
I ordered this holster I believe on Monday by Thursday I had it in hand. I have holsters from different makers from the top of the line to somewhere in the middle. I would placed Vedder holsters at the top. When it comes to fit and finish very well done. I had a difficult time believing that they can produce a holster of this quality and at such a short amount of time. Vedder holsters has done it. If you are looking for a quality holster where they don't cut corners and have to wait weeks. You have to try Vedder Holsters for sure. Thank you for a great product !!
I got it fast and the product looks outstanding however I do not have my pistols yet so I am unable to write a complete review at this time
I purchased this holster to carry my FNS 40. It fits like a glove. The curve makes it fit perfectly. I wear a suit every day and when I have my jacket on, you can't even tell that it's there. Whether I'm sitting or standing, the holster holds the weapon in a very comfortable position. I will definitely buy this for whatever handgun I purchase next.
No other company can compare to the quality, price, and ship time of Vedder.
This is an excellent holster. Fit and finish is top-notch. The ride height is exactly as it should be and with just the standard belt clips it sits nice and flat to the waist. I like this one so much, I just ordered a second one in black. (First was in coyote brown). Now if they would just start making mag holders to go along with their holsters....
Had so much trouble trying to find a holster to fit my Smith & Wesson m&p shield with a Crimson trace green laser. Until I run across Vedder holster. I talked to Mike and Brooke on the phone and they guaranteed me that there holster would fit my gun like a glove. I was a little skeptical but I went ahead and ordered the holster anyway. I am so glad I listen to them the gun fits perfect. Very high-quality material and workmanship thank you Mike and Brooke for a USA made holster. I will definitely be doing business with them again.
Purchased this "Lightdraw OWB" holster for my Glock 43 w CT lasergaurd. The fit and workmanship is excellent. This is very well made and functional holster. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I believe the optional pancake clips should be the standard clips for this holster not an optional purchase IMO. The pancake clips provide a tighter fit to the body which when seeking concealment is the way-to-go IMO.
Looked all over the web for a holster to fit my Smith & Wesson m&p shield with ct green laser. After finding Vedder holster and talking to Mike and Brooke convinced me that the lightweight would fit the gun like a glove. They were right after receiving the holster less than seven days from placing order very happy with the holster. Will be doing business with Vedder again. Holster is very high quality and very well-made thank you Mike for making a USA made holster with quality materials and quality workmanship.
Great, great, great!! Well formed, adjustable retention, concealable under a light shirt/jacket, choice of colors for no additional cost. Just an all around awesome OWB holster that is well worth the money. Vedder products are the best bang for the buck.
As stated above I am very impressed with the quality of my holster. At only 2/3s the price of a similar product from another company it has the quality, fit and positive retention. Though not quite as detailed as my other holster, I lose nothing and saved a good amount of $. I will buy more in the future and recommend it to other folks.
I just received this holster & have used it a couple of times, so far. The fit is perfect, the riveting is impeccable, it's lightweight, & comfortable for long periods of time. Time will tell how well it holds up. So far, it's very near perfect!
Ordered this holster just prior to Christmas and surprisingly I received an email a few days later telling me the holster was being shipped. WOW, what great service. When the holster arrived the attention to detail was superb and fit was perfect for my RUGER SR1911. The holster is very comfortable and when wearing at my 2 o'clock position has little to no printing when wearing a loose shirt. Highly recommend this holster to others as an EDC option!
Very satisfied with my LIGHTDRAW OWB HOLSTER for myGLOCK 42 with CT. Rides well on hip,very comfortable,pistol snaps in securely. Tension was correct from maker. Perfect holster. Now they have to make one for my Ruger LCR .22 WMR with Lasermax.
Lightweight , heavy duty and wears close to my body. Great for concealment if needed. Got exactly what I was needed.
Perfect! This holster is just what I was looking for, great retention, snugs the firearm close to the body for easy concealment! Comfortable to wear all day long, sometimes forget it's there! I will be buying more from Vedder! Highly recommend!!
Works great for my Glock 43, fit is perfect and it's a joy to wear. Tension was set right, no adjustments needed.
Fits the gun perfect right out if the package. Retention was set properly, nice click to let you know it's in the right place. Pancake wings holds it up to your waist nice and snug and doesn't flop around. I'm a bigger dude and with a loose shirt or sweatshirt there's no printing. By far the nicest owb holster I've owned.. Nicely done Vedder!!
I used the Quick Draw OWB first then saw the Lightdraw OWB and got it. I cut off the slide shield from both units. The Quick Draw worked OK but I like the Lightdraw better. I use a combination pancake wing and standard loop to position on my 5.11's. I think the Lightdraw has a bit less signature than the Quick Draw and wear it daily.
Excellent holster build in top quality
Fits my G30 sf great, snaps in place. The canter is perfect, it has helped increase my draw speed. I didn't have to wait 2 weeks, it was at my door in 4.5 days. Let's just say it is exactly what Vedder said it would be. It conceals the G30 sf very well. Thanks guys.
Perfect fit for HK 45 USP
I just got my light draw owb holster in the mail yesterday and used it in a class today. It needed no break in and worked perfectly. I like it better than my Bravo Concealment holster.
The over all fit and finish of the holster is great!!! :-) I haven't had the opportunity to really test it yet, but I will soon.
Bought this holster for my long-awaited Glock 43 based on what looked like an excellent design. I have several other Vedder holsters, and knew that the piece would arrive on time, be well made and an excellent value. I was correct on all counts. Fits the gun perfectly, and conceals easily. Order the optional clips. The further the reduce the profile, and make the holster easier to put on belt and to conceal. They send you the standard clips as well, so if you don't like the optionals, simply swap them out. I'm betting that won't happen! Nice rig!
I bought this holster after owning some of the more popular kydex rigs and was blown away by the shipping speed and quality. This holster exceeds my expectations, comes with adjustable retention and is $20 less than the other guys. If you are looking for an OWB kydex rig this will go toe to toe with any others out there and wipe the floor with it. I'll be back for more... Also adding the pancake clips are will worth it. Holds your gun in close enough to conceal under most shirts, plus they still give you the standard clips as well. Keep it up Vedder thanks!
I bought the Lightdraw OWB for my Springfield XDS 3.3" barrel. I chose this holster over a leather OWB holster from a different company, mainly because of aesthetics. The pictures on the website are totally representative of what I got, which is great for a first-time online purchaser. This holster is two pieces, screwed together at five points. One of the screws is for retention adjustment. This was a big selling point for me, because I didn't want anything that would require me to push a button to draw out of the holster. I haven't changed the tightness of the retention screw yet, because I like the tension right out of the box (this is just personal preference though). I put my XDS in the holster, turned it upside down, and shook it pretty vigorously and the pistol stayed secure. Once again, I am wary of alternatives that demand finger releases to draw a pistol. This holster proves they aren't really necessary. The clips are on the back of the holster, and are "independent" of the holster's body. This was also a selling point for me, because many OWB holsters' loops/clips are threaded through the holster itself. The clips are at an angle to each other, so it's best worn at the 2-4 o'clock positions (for righties). The pistol fits so well in this holster that you hear a click when it goes in, even though there are no internal locks, which made me very happy. The belt loops sit in the mid-barrel/trigger guard zone of the pistol, so this is a good holster for people who want to holster higher up (might be different for other pistol models though). If I keep my belt loose, or allow the holster to sag, the pistol's handle will lean away slightly. Something else that impresses me with this holster is the low profile nature of it. While I purchased this for carry around the house, it only prints slightly more than my concealed carry IWB holster. I was a little skeptical about this holster for concealed carry, but I will definitely be using it for that purpose in the fall and winter months. (Of course, this is for a CC-sized gun, and I'd be curious to see how my 5" tactical model sits in this style holster.) Vedder shipped USPS 2 day priority, so I was able to track my package from the moment it left their facility. I am glad that I was able to get a product made by a small business in the US. Vedder says that they aren't the most or least expensive, but they are the best value overall. I am very impressed with the quality of this holster, and will definitely order from this company in the future.
