Top notch customer service! Superior quality of the products! Excellent value for your investment!
Great holster, great fit, great company, fast shipping, great customer service. One of very few legitimate holster vendors with left-handed gear.
My holster not only arrived earlier than I thought, it fit perfectly with no adjustments in retention needed. I would recommend this holster, it looks good and feels sturdy. Holster is for: 9mm XDM - Elite 3.8 full size
Been looking for a holster that would fit my 9E and glad I went with this one. Since the SR9 and 9E are very close to the same I took the leap and ordered this for an SR9. If you are a 9E owner and looking for a holster, This is the one!! Fits like a glove! perfect retention and coverage.
I've been in Law Enforcement for 25 years and bought several Kydex Bolsters during my career. This holster surpassed everything I've ever purchased, period! Thanks for building such a great holster thats made to last! Love how my P320 fits so great! My team at work was impressed and 2 other guys are buying one!Im going to purchase another one for a different weapon! A+++, 5 Stars!!!!
Absolutely the best holsterI have ever owned.
Overall, great holster for the money. Wish it rode a little lower, but it's secure and adjustable with the extra belt clip option. Happy with purchase!
Let me first say that the quality of this holster is great. The reason it’s unusable for me is it fails miserably in the concealment department. The gun rides so much higher than the belt clips. So, as you tighten your belt the holster becomes top heavy and the gun pushes away from your body. It might help if there was more cant, but as is it is unusable. Also, the sweat guard was a little warped and bent inward so it dug into my body while the gun leaned away. I cut off the sweat guard and sanded it. That solved the problem of the holster hurting me, but I just can’t wear it if it doesn’t conceal. The materials and molding were spot on, but you can’t get around a poorly thought out design. You can’t have the entire weight of the gun riding above the belt clips. I love what this company stands for, so I took a chance ordering online. Sadly, I just threw it in my growing holster box and am trying not be sad about wasting the money. I do wish the company all the best. Like I said, I love their message and what they stand for. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. We are so sorry to hear that you are not 100% satisfied and, we are more than happy to assist. This should not happen and depending on the size of the holster, you may be able to adjust the clips.

Please reach out to our customer service team so that we can better assist. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
There aren't many options out there for the 5" barrel full frame. They filled the bill perfectly. Great retention, perfect fit for moving during competition league events. Stays where you want it on your belt for easy draw. I would have opted for a low to med sweat guard as this is full height but that's just my preference, not that big of a deal when you look at the overall quality of fit and finish. 7 days from order date to receiving it in the mail. Very fast and custom order. Thanks again.
The holster fit my CZ like a glove. Shipping was fast, and I will definitely be ordering more products from Vedder!!
I think your products are spot on and your company is the only one I use for my guns, however, I don’t like the “wide” belt loop that you put on your holsters. They do not pull in tight enough to conceal properly. I wish you would make them lower profiled. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster, we greatly appreciate the feedback! We do have different clip styles for this holster that may work out better for you. Please feel free to reach out to our customer service department so that we can set this up for you.
Comfortable,forget it's there sometimes
Absolutely a great quality holster at a very competitive price. Delivery time was very reasonable. Tension is great no slop at all holding handgun in place. Will definitely use Vedder again for my next handgun holster purchase.
Been using this holster for my FNX 45 every day for the last month or so. Its a large heavy pistol and this holster carries the weight very well. Surprisingly well. I work outdoors and spend a lot of time farming/ranching in my off time and open carry is my norm. The holster sits high and tight so keep that in mind but it hasn't hindered my draw or holstering. I was satisfied enough to purchase another for a Glock 41. Pros- well made, carries the weight well, reasonable price. Cons- need to lock tight the hardware. Lost a screw in two weeks of wearing. Ordering a hardware set is recommended.
Vedder kydex holsters have a different feel drawing and holstering. They are so smooth and solid compared to other brands I own. Something about the design also makes them more comfortable. Best kydex holster I've used.
This holster did not work for me. As a woman, it hit me in the ribs. I’m exchanging for a lower profile one. I think it’s a great holster, just not this model. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We do understand that each person has their own unique carry needs and for this reason, we offer a 30 day return/exchange policy. We look forward to assisting you with your exchange for another holster that works out best for you. Have a great day!
This holster is perfect, the firearm sits nicely inside and the retention is adjustable to just how I need it. This is my first Vedder Holster and now that I have one I don't think I would want any other. The quality of the product is exceptional and the price is reasonable. I highly recommend Vedder Holsters to anyone who wants a quality product.
Awesome holster I own two of these and swear by them. Will buy again. Thanks for the awesome holster
Excellent product. Fits the piece like a glove. Sturdy but light. Very happy. Regards from Switzerland
Its my first holster and I'm happy I found one for my 97b. Fits great, looks awesome.
Good fit for pistol, well made, good customer service.
Comfortable feel, easy draw, and high quality. Will continue to buy from in the future. Nice work
Like other customers, I bought one Light Draw for a range pistol, and really liked how it snugged tight better than other holsters I own. Decided to get another for my EDC H&K VP9sk. I really like the comfort of this holster, and it rides well on a belt designed for EDC.
Well made holster. This is my second for a different gun. No complaints at all. Great service.
Very well made, pancake clips are well worth it
Comfortable to wear all day and great retention for my Sig P320
I rarely leave reviews on websites unless I really like or hate a product. In this case I really like the holster, it has good retention, it's comfortable and fit my p320 perfectly.
My Walther P22 clicks in solid, so I feel confident to run and roll around with the handgun in the holster. I would be interested in a model with a lower ride height, since this one makes the draw pretty high before clearing the holster.
It fit my CZ 75b prefect. Holds tight to the body with the pancake wings.
Great holster and mag pouch. Good service. They need a metal belt loop clip option for the OWB holster.
The Lightdraw is a well made OWB holster. It provides good retention and conceals well. However I did have a problem with the pancake clips. I originally bought the holster with pancake clips and quickly discovered that on the draw, the holster moves or slips. The problem was the belt slipped out of the belt detent in the clips. I adjusted the belt tension but the issue continued. It is very unnerving and not ideal to have your holster move as you draw your gun. The pancake clips are a good concept but the clip is wider than the belt. The detent is intended to hold the belt in place but doesn't during the draw. If the width of the pancake clips matched the belt width the holster would not move on the draw. I replaced the pancake clips with the standard clips and have not experienced holster movement during the draw. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. We are so sorry to hear this and we are happy to assist. Please reach out to our customer service team so that we can make sure we have not sent the incorrect size, if so we will correct this for you. Have a great day!
This holster fits great. The finish is awesome and the retention is phenomenal for a kydex pancake holster. Initially it is super tough to remove the pistol but after a day or two of draws, it loosened up enough for carry. Will definitely recommend!!
Great holster as always. I have a few now from vedder and they’re reliable, durable and well made. Works well with the cobra belt as well: great retention and is adjustable if needed - get the pancake clips as well as the other ones for options on how it sits on your waist or body. PCR is very easy to conceal with a lose T-shirt, i can easily carry at work with a 2XL at work when I usually wear a XL or 2XL.
I think the quality of the holster is very good, but it rides too high for my preferences. I have a problematic shoulder on my carry side (left), and the holster positions the firearm too high for my to readily access it. I would rate this holster higher, if I could adjust the position 2 to 3 inches lower. I am seriously considering returning the holster and trying to find another.
Just got my LightDraw OWB for the SW M&P Shield Plus and let me tell you that the holster is perfect in every way. The cant, retention, and coverage is spot on and Vedder did a great job with their tooling in the new SW on the market. This is my 2nd holster with Vedder & I will continue being a lifelong customer especially with that lifetime warranty. No regrets and highly recommend to all!!!
Well done guys. Excellent holster. Crisp lines. Sturdy construction. Awesome packaging.
Left hand draw - forgot to accommodate left side mag release. **VH Comment** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. The mag release should be accommodated for. Please reaching out to our customer service department so that we can better assist. We look forward to assisting you further, have a great day!
Very well constructed and the craftsmanship to design is apparent. Arrived in less than a week with nice packaging. Highly recommend Vedder holsters!
This is my second Light Draw that I've purchased. It's a simple design that takes every nook and cranny of the weapon choice into account and attempts to hold it as tightly as you want. Mine is for a SIG P229. I feel like it is expensive, and worth every penny. My sidearm does not rattle, it stays put on my belt and doesn't want to ride around, and the premium pancake clips never feel like they dig into my hip. Additionally, the subdued branding is a welcome surprise. Put bluntly, I intend to be a long-term customer.
Customer service was superb! The 3 holsters I received are great! Not much more to say! Jeremy Mallon Belgrade, MT
Best holster on the market, very comfortable and a great light retention. I have three one for Glock 19x , Glock 19 Gen 5 , Springfield Hellcat . Love them all would highly recommend.
I purchased the Vedder LightDraw OWB left hand draw for one specific purpose: to mount to the outside side of my 2019 Ram 3500 console. This thing is absolutely AMAZING & PERFECT! I simply removed the belt clips, that just unscrew, drilled to small holes in console, added a 1” spacer between holster and console so to make easy and quick access to gun, and used to bolts to fasten. The hand gun I mounted is the Sig Sauer 1911 Emporer Scorpion.45. I’m not kidding- it worked absolutely perfect and looks OEM. My leg dies not hit it, seat fully adjusts and it is easily accessible and secure for when I’m on the road. Very high quality holster, excellent fit and nice looking. I recommended to everyone. Fast shipping, great people and great products. And MADE IN THE USA!!! 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️‘S I wish I could add pictures as to the install!
I ordered the light draw for my Walther P22. I just started carrying and find it very comfortable. I plan on using this for many years. I am convincing my husband to order one for himself.
Ordered this for my Walther P22. I love it. I just started carrying and it is very comfortable and sturdy. I plan on using this holster more than my others. Convincing my husband to order one for himself.
Purchased this holster for a Springfield Armory XDm in 10mm. Vedder Holsters does not list a holster for this gun so I purchased a holster for the SA .45acp. The holster arrived several days after being ordered. In was securely packaged and enclosed in a draw string bag. The holster is well made and fits the gun perfectly. It rides very comfortably on the belt/hip and I expect it will give many years of use.
Ordered 3/25 and got it today 3/29.I was surprised by the quick ship and also Vedder having one in stock for my specifications. Vedder seems to be the first one to the market with a true G27 Gen5 holster and in left hand no less. The quality seems as good as kydex holsters come and it is comfortable on the hip. I have carried previous G27's from 1,2,3 and 4 in my over twenty year old Galco Scout but the Gen 5 was just about 3mm too wide in the slide. I am still a .40 fan and now a Vedder fan. It fit's tight, high up on the waistband and snug to my body and hopefully it won't print wearing a t-shirt during summer months. Nicely done!
No complaints about this holster. It suits the need of my weapon (Glock 19) - good retention as well as easy to draw without the fuss of having to remove any clips first. Also fits well against your body on your belt.
Packaging looked great however the fitment was a problem. Ended up taking a little file and knocking off a couple hard corners and heating and using pressure to expand so the gun would go in. Don’t know if I’ll order another from them **VH COMMENT** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. All of our holsters are handcrafted to order and we are happy to look into this further. Our goal is for you to be 100% satisfied with the holster. Please reach out to our customer service department so that we can better assist. Have a great day!
I got the holster very fast. Top notch quality and workmanship.
Once again, Vedder fails to disappoint. Kydex is Kydex but Vedder does a good molding job and where this holster really shines is in the pancake belt paddles. They get the holster really tight to the body and as long as you wear a carry belt, there is no droop and the weapon stays tight on your side. Other holsters that have traditional belt clamps attached to leather backing end up falling away from the body and getting in the way. Very inconvenient and uncomfortable. Vedder is the only brand of holsters that I buy and I have multiple OWB’s and IWB’s made by them.
Arrived promptly and has excellent fit and finish. Retention is excellent and it rides very comfortably when I’m out moving around. I plan to get an iwb holster from here as well. Definitely more than satisfied with my purchase.
Purchased this holster for a p365XL owb. Great fit and finish. Definitely one of the better quality holsters on the market. Highly recommend it.
Vedder holsters show excellent design and craftsmanship and their staff is a pleasure to deal with. I can recommend them without reservation.
Quality made with great retention.
Positive bolstering feel. Good retention without any adjustment. Great holster.
Love it. Perfect fit and finish. Well done! Highly recommended.
The best holster I've ever had, great material, great product, is just perfect...
I never had a solid rig for my Sig P228 until now. By far the best holster I have ever purchased!
This holster exceeded my expectations. The quality is off the charts. Every edge is smooth and retention is great. I forget that I am wearing it half the time and that says alot since I carry a CZ P07.
When you are serious about your concealed carry holster, you’d do well to choose a Vedder Kydex Holster!!! The Kydex is thick and comes in many different colors and designs. This is my second OWB Holster from Vedder and I highly recommend this holster to anyone who is serious about a fast and smooth drawing holster!!!!
Excellent OWB holster. Fits good and ride height is perfect. It conceals well even though I’m running a G20.
Very nice quality holster for my Springfield Armory XDS w/Crimson Trace Laserguard. It is comfortable and has very good retention.
Very nice quality holster for my Glock 19. It is comfortable and has very good retention.
Love everything about this holster. The fit, the quality, the look, very happy. It will be perfect while riding with our local sheriff’s mounted patrol unit. Will definitely be buying another one for my P365.
I am very happy with this holster for my kimber micro 9 and Springfield hellcat. It’s hot down here in Southern FL and wearing an IWB holster can be miserable. I really like that the light draw holds the gun high and tight to the body with a forward can’t. It makes concealment a breeze under a tshirt or button down as is so comfortable I sometimes forget Im even carrying.
I ordered the light tuck and matching IWB mag pouch and leather belt a few months ago. The belt is excellent quality! Best I’ve ever had! The Camo pattern on the holster (Supercam Night stalker) was not quite as defined as I expected, however the holster itself is exceptional! The fit and finish is very good. I found that the IWB mag pouch was not a good fit for my body type and Vedder graciously replaced it with an OWB. Great service! I then ordered the light draw in the same pattern. I am very pleased with the pattern on this one as well as the fit and finish! I find the original belt loop attachments work best for me and place the holster high enough on the belt, that it is possible to conceal under a loose shirt. I am very pleased with these products! Note: make sure that you blue loctite your fasteners as with any kydex holster. My experience with Vedder holsters has been very positive and I am happy to recommend this American company!
Very high quality and nice attention to detail would receive
Like the holster. Thanks!
I have three LIGHTDRAW OWB holsters for Sig pistols: one for the P365 XL, one for the P320 X Compact, and one for the P229. I purchased them at different times...didn't want to go "all in" only to discover something quirky about Vedder products that made them less than desirable for me. However, I've been using one for about 2.5 years and the others for a bit shorter period of time. They all share the same characteristics. They are well-designed, well-engineered, well-executed, with wonderful fit and finish; they are adjustable to produce the right amount of retention, yet provide great access when needed. I have absolutely no complaints. Vedder is a first-rate company that makes a high-value product for a reasonable price. I'm a happy camper!
superb craftsmanship. 10 in quality and serviceability. Would highly rate this product and recommend it ! Retired Police Officer with 30 years of service. Vedder, your right on target... Kudos !
Light Draw for M&P 2.0 Compact. Vedder made a few special modifications for me. No extra charge. Holster works perfect. Emily was so much help. Great company interested in your needs and provide great products at a fair price. Can't ask for more than that. Made in USA with great customer service.
Awesome well made holster! Fit and retention is superb! Highly recommended!!
by far the best, i own several of vedder holsters.the quality is better than any other kydex holster out on the market today. The molding is so spot on that it almost looks like they poured a protective paint over your firearm. the holsters are so comfortable that i forget I'm carrying. And that audible click ensures me thats its safe and sound.
Like many of us, I own twice as many holsters as I do firearms, if not more, and by far, this holster is now my favorite for EDC and CC. With this particular weapon, I almost don't know that I'm carrying.
Amazing retention and holds tight on my belt. Definitely recommend for OWB concealed carry.
This is my sixth Vedder holster. I got this LightDraw for my Springfield Hellcat’s. I carry it in an office/laboratory setting every day under an untucked shirt. NOBODY ever notices it, myself included. I added the optional pancake loops for slightly better concealment, and the Hellcat rides high and very close. To say I’m satisfied would be a great understatement ! I WILL return for more from Vedder.
Sir, The holster is top notch however I did a shooting match this last Saturday and the screws that secure the holster to the belt came out and now I can’t wear it on my belt, I wear this holster on duty and off Duty. Thank you for your time *VH COMMENT* Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are so sorry to hear this. We recommend checking the hardware regularly as well as applying a thread locker to help prevent the screws from backing out. We are more than happy to set you up with some repalcment hardware and some thread locker. Please reach out to our customer service team so we can assist!
This is my first Veddar holster. Had trouble finding a holster for a CZ-97b. It's quite a bit larger than my 1911, especially at the trigger guard. The LightDraw is a great fit. Distributes the weight well and close to the body. love the small extension that covers the magazine release button. The holster makes a squeaky zip sound when I draw. Hoping that goes away with time.
So far so great, retention is excellent and rides close to the body. I also added the pancake loops to spread out the weight even more.
I needed a solid OWB holster for my 10mm Springfield XDM. I’ve used a Vedder IWBs in the past and know they have been good choices. The LightDraw OWB is no exception. It conforms well to the pistol holding it solidly in place, has quality kydex, and good molding to the pistol outline. The belt loops are good and will work with thick gun belts. Color choices are outstanding. It holds the big XDM with very good retention; the draw is fast; and re-holstering is snag free. Vedder was fast custom making the holster and shipping it out to me, unlike some holster companies. These are an excellent choice for an OWB holster.
This is a great holster for the S&W M&P Shield .45 4”bbl. w/RDS. I already had one for the standard 3.3” bbl. version. This holster will actually work for both models. It rides a little higher, so it doesn’t hang any lower, in spite of holding a longer barrel pistol. I like that. The grip is tight against the body and conceals nicely. I’m very happy.
Received my OWB lightdraw holster for my HK P30,it's a perfect fit and holds in nicely and draws out perfect. Very good quality, very satisfied with this product and will come back again to order in the future for other purchases, thanks Vedderholsters.
I went shopping for a kydex OWB holster with three main criteria; left handed, positive retention and solid fit and finnish. As other southpaws may know, finding a well designed kydex holster can be a struggle. Vedder has resolved that struggle. As mentioned previously this holster has very good retention and unmatched fit and finnish. I run a 1911-A1 with an ambidextrous extended thumb safety and haven't experienced any fitment issues with my holster. This Vedder holster is very concealable even with a full-size 1911 on my 5'9" 145lb frame.
Heard about Vedder, decided to try one out. Now I own 5 different holsters for 3 different pistols. Quality, comfortable, and very concealable. Top shelf gear.
Great holster that fits my Glock 21 perfectly. It keeps my EDC close to my body for easy concealment. Will order from Vedder Holsters when I need another holster.
The holster fits my Glock 21sf w/rail perfectly. Great customer service.
Got mine today and love it. Well made, fits the gun perfectly. I would recommend this holster to anyone looking to carry a full size 92 Elite. I use it with a 1.75 " Kore Essential Belt, I don't know the pistol is even there
Great quality, fit, and finish.
A superb holster - very secure and comfortable. I am VERY eagerly awaiting for this model holster to be available for the Glock 48 MOS, which I am switching to for my EDC.
The light draw holster for my Ruger SR 40 fit perfectly. It’s well made and is comfortable to wear. I will be buying more products from Vedder because of their high standards and quality.
I wanted a holster that would hold my standard-sized handgun tight to my body to conceal well under a loose-fitting shirt or jacket without anything sticking out. Extremely satisfied with how this holster does just that.
Extremely satisfied with this amazing product. It holds my CZ 75 perfectly and I love the audible click when it’s seated in the holster. I previously had a thumb break, leather holster, but wanted this for quick draw shooting... glad I made the purchase. Great communication with Vedder and fast shipping. Would definitely buy from them again.
Extremely satisfied with this holster for my Hellcat. The tension adjustment allows for a great range and love that audible "click".
Good fit,excellent retention. A good solid holster..
Very satisfied. Conceals well under my shirt even though it's owb. My glock draws quick and easy and sits in the holster nice and snug. My 3rd Vedder holster.
I was hesitant because price was a little highter than normal kydex, but I ordered it anyway. I was not disappointed, Holster is the best kydex holster I have ever seen, and I have a lot of them. The many options allowed me to get exactly what I wanted. -- ML
I onw multiple Vedder holsters and they are all comfortable and durable. They fit the weapons very well. I highly recommend purchasing a Vedder.
Great company. Showed up quicker then expected and fits my gun perfectly when no other manufacturers even made a holster to fit.
After much research, I decided to purchase a gun and mag holster from Vedder. I could not be happier with the quality and look of them. They are comfortable while wearing and training. The shipping was very fast also. Worth every penny
Awesome holster!!! Fits P320 X Compact perfect, very comfortable. Vedders customer service is great!!! Vedder is where it’s at!!
Great quality holster. Fit and finish are excellent. Great retention and looks great. Thank you.
Excellent fit and finish highly recommend these holsters
This is my second Vedder holster. Excellent quality, great USA company, with prompt service. My Vedder holsters hold my everyday carry securely and comfortably! Highly recommend.
I purchased the Holster as well as the double mag OWB holder for a Beretta LTT Elite. Awesome products and great customer service. It actually came quicker than promised .
I just received my Digital Flag on Gray holster for my Glock 23. If a holster can be beautiful this is. The rounded edges are a step above! I’ve only worn it a couple times so far, but this holster fits my gun perfectly and just as important it wears on my body amazingly comfortable. Customer service: I didn’t have any major issues, with the ordering process. When I did reach out with several questions the responses were very courteous and professional. A step above here as well. To wrap up my review, I will be buying another holster for my Glock 43 soon.
Excellent Quality, perfect fit, adjustable draw resistance
The Light Draw with extended clips is the most comfortable OWB holster ever owned. Holds tight to body almost better than IWB.
I got this holster so I can conceal carry out side the waistband. It’s perfect and has great retention.
Nice Fit, Holster balances well with the large frame H&K USP full size in .45 acp. Holster fits tight to the body and an easy draw. Fantastic Holster!!!
I haven't had the holster long enough to really say about the actual product. What I do want to comment on is to say the Vedder crew has been great. I got the wrong holster only because I gave them the wrong information when ordering. When I contacted them they simply couldn't have been better about helping me to solve the problem. I'm sure I will love the product but I couldn't be more happy to give the product. company and crew them a 5 star rating and that only because there isn't a 6. Thanks guys!
First experience with Vedder Holsters and I am very favorably impressed. I've been carrying a firearm professionally and retired for 40 years, so I've used a bunch of holsters. The Lightdraw with the pancake clips really pulls the weapon tight into your body and is very discrete and secure. Delivery was well within the projected time frame. I will be back for more holsters.
Prior to owning my Vedder, my last OWB holster was a Blackhawk Serpa more than 10 years ago. It felt cheap, it was uncomfortable, and I wasn't happy with it. I've had several IWB holsters from various manufacturers, and I've been happy, but traveling long distances with them is not the most comfortable exercise. I started looking for a good OWB holster, and Vedder kept coming up. I hadn't heard much about them, but with a 30-day money-back guarantee, it was worth a shot. It arrived and I was surprised by the packaging. It came with a bag; this was pretty bespoke for a kydex holster. The first thing that struck me was the rigidity. This thing was not going to give unless I really set about trying to mangle it. I inspected the holster and the fit and finish were superb. The colors were spot on, and there was nothing that would catch or tear at my clothes. I tried to seat my weapon in it, a SIG P226 (no rail) and I had to really force it in. It was damn-near impossible to get out, so I adjusted the tension. I got it dialed in pretty quick. The retention is good, it clicks positively in place and my weapon does not rattle. I am quite pleased, and I doubt very seriously that I'll be sending this back ever.
Great holster. Bought one for my Glock 30s and Glock 21 and they can’t be beat. Use to buy Bravo, but they have gone money hungry, will only make and sell holsters that sell fast, Will not make holsters for the 30s or 21 anymore. What a shame. Vedder had no problem filling my order. Thanks Vedder, GREAT holster, Great Quality.
Great quality, well built holster. My wife and I own 3 of them. Firearm locks securely in place, yet easy to grip quickly. Only complaint would be Vedder's loyalty discount code doesnt seem to be recognized any longer (10% off subsequent purchases was advertised).
I just received a vedder holster for my Glock 40 cal. model 22. I had a fabric holster for several years but it was uncomfortable to wear. I have been wearing my Vedder holster ever since Christmas day. It really feels right on my side. It does not even show under my vest or coat like the other one did. I recommend Vedder holsters to anyone. My son introduced me to Vedder holsters.
I have had my XDS 45 ever since they first came out. I carried it for years in an appendix IWB with no problems. However, I have grown tired of IWB and was looking for something else. I tried a bunch of leather ones, which I didn’t really like (can’t reholster). I decided to try the Vedder holster, and wow! I switched to the pancake belt loops and man is it comfortable. Good retention, and best of all, easy to reholster. It holds nice and tight against my side, and if I didn’t use the extended mag, it wouldn’t print at all. Can’t say enough good things about it. I will order one for my XD Mod 2 45 soon (by the way... fast shipping on it). All good!
Recently purchased both of these items and was very disappointed that the belt would not go through the standard loops that come with the holster. fortunately I purchased he larger loops also. I also have another holster that I can't use with the quick release cobra belt due to the size of the buckle. this is something that should be made known to customers before they purchase this belt, I have two belts a black and a coyote, love the belts, love the holsters just wish i could use them together without changing the loops *VH comment* Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We are so sorry to hear that you had trouble with the belt loops. Please reach out to our customer service team so that we can better assist.
After carefully researching different IWB and OWB holsters I decided on this Vedder brand. Glad I did and couldn’t be happier. I have many different brands holsters and this Vedder is similar to the style of my Bladetech holsters but better. The Vedder has the option of carrying with slightly different angle positions and depth; standard, low and deep. It has a metal bracket instead of plastic. It’s a great holster and comfortable. Customer service and their team is beyond impeccable and truly value their customers. Highly recommend this company and any of the merchandise.
I have a CZ 75 Compact with a red dot. Hard to find a company that makes a holster for this gun. After searching many companies I arrived at Vedder Holsters. They have the holster for my gun, finally! I received the holster & it was a Perfect fit. The fit is Very Secure & with the pancake wing clips the holster is close & tight to the body. This weekend I bought the CZ 75 PO1. I Will be ordering another holster from Vedder. I like everything about the holster. No need for further searching.
First holster I ordered from this company. Top quality, works great with my gun. Will definitely be ordering some more from here. They ship really fast however the post office kept it for over 15 days past the delivery date so might want to look at a different way of shipping.
I have bought several holsters from Vedder, Lighttuck IWB and lightdraw OWB and have never been disappointed, there holsters are the best. I have tried a few others but never again.
I received this about two weeks ago. I love this holster. I have the iwb holster for my Glock 19 . I love it, with winter here and training I prefer owb. I love this holster. Have not carried iwb since I received this. Will not carry any other way. This is my go to holster. It works great with cobra belt from vedder. I have found the perfect set up for me. Thank you vedder.
I've purchased too many holsters over the years, never have i had one with a quality fit as well as finish, Vedder made this happen... On tip of that my product showed up on time and packaged to protect the products. I recommend this company, you won't be let down... Thank you, you have a 5 star company...
I own several holsters from Vedder. They are all outstanding products. This particular holster I utilize as my winter OWB carry. It has great retention. It is well built and will last a lifetime. I would highly recommend any product from Vedder.
This holster stays tight to your body and has great retention, atleast for my glock. Standard clips are great for skinny guys, pancake clips are more for a larger guy. Good finish.
As a Departmental Firearms Instructor I wear my holster all day, every day. This holster is extremely comfortable, a little expensive, but worth every penny. I will look hear first for next holster I buy.
Just received my lighdraw owb and my expectations were exceeded it looks absolutely amazing with the thin blue line flag. The holster arrived sooner than expected and their customer service was great.
Great holster, I’ve tried other brands and vetter is the only one I can conceal carry with comfortably. Thanks vetter for making a great product
This is a great holster. I own several with the premium clips. It's my favorite. Also, no one ships as fast as Vedder!
This is my 2nd holster from Vedder. Based on a recommendation, my first Vedder holster was a LightTuck IWB for a CZ RAMI. It was perfect. So when I acquired a CZ PCR, I went right back to Vedder; this time for a LightDraw OWB. It fits the gun to a "T". I took it out to the club and it worked flawlessly for IDPA. I couldn't be more pleased. Also, I would recommend the pancake clips. Vedder - top shelf all the way.
Excellent holster - I love the slight 'lock in' of the last aprox 3/4 inch or so of insertion. I bought both clip styles, but the Pancake Clips worked the best, holds it closer to your body. Holster fits tight and secure on my belt, and rides high enough that I can get in and out of my car comfortably. Pistol fit is great, secure in the holster but draws easily - The adjustable tension made that possible. Can't imagine a better belt holster, though I've found a stiffer belt would be an improvement (no surprise there).
As the header says, this is my 4th OWB holster from Vedder. They are simply the best. I’m like many others with a drawer full of holsters, trying to find the right one. Once I found Vedder, I finally found the best for me. Top quality at a great price and the cant is perfect. Had to have one for each of my carry guns. Don’t hesitate- get a Vedder.
This is my first OWB from Vedder. I have had and carried a Lightuck for years, got another Lightuck for one of my new purchases, and also decided I needed an OWB since it’s winter and a little more comfortable. As usual, retention is great, belt loops are perfectly designed, adjustable retention, and of course an awesome color selection.
Only had a a day and I’ve already done nightly dry firing/ dry practice. From 4:00-6:00 I can get it out fast and in fast!! (I am used to appendix) all in all I’m impressed with the fit-finish. Cant is perfect, very tight fit like I like (carrying a M&P 2.0 full-size comfortably.)
The LightDraw™ OWB holster is outstanding! I must have purchased 25 holsters over time trying to find one that would hold a full size, heavy carry pistol high enough on the belt to remain concealed, tight against the body, and secure from tip-out. Their “pancake wing” belt clips are super-strong and fit my 1.5” gun belt perfectly. I’ve been wearing it daily for several weeks now, and I still love it. The only problem is that they are custom molded for each specific model of pistol, so it looks like I’m going to need at least two more. I wonder if they will decide to offer frequent flyer discounts?
I've just received my second Vedder Holster, the Light Draw OWB for my Glock 19. It fits it perfectly! The quality & craftsmanship are phenomenal for the price. I ordered and in less than a week, it was delivered. I also have a Lighttuck Kydex IWB for the same gun, also perfect! I've been very pleased with both holsters as well as the ordering & delivery process. Will definitely be purchasing additional holsters!
Great fit and finish. Best owb holster period.
Holster was delivered in about 2 weeks from when I ordered it . The Vedder holster is great quality and fits the gun perfect. They are one of the few companies that makes holsters for the larger 5 inch barrels. I just wanted this holster for a concealed carry gun class. Unfortunately I can't get a shorter pistol right now due to the panic buying. I do not plan on carrying a pistol this large, but this pistol will have to do for the upcoming class. Nick S
I've now got 3 Vedder holsters-2 light drawer. First and Second were for Sig320 Carry, 3rdn for a H&K VP9. Love them all. I'm a Vedder fan for 3 reasons: the work, they're affordable and they are made in my home state of Florida.
Another great holster from vedder. This is my third and all are perfect, functional works of art.
Very well made and fits well. Would have gotten it sooner but USPS sent it to Guam first!
I have two Vedder holsters now for my P365,a IWB and OWB. Two different tools for two different jobs. The LightDraw OWB is the latest and I love it. I chose to use the Premium Pancake Clips, it fits like a glove for my hip and it definitely gets a recommend from me.
Great holster! Fit and finish is excellent. With the upgraded clips its easy to conceal carry with this owb holster
The finish and construction are great, and the fit is good too, considering mine is for Glock 42 with TLR-6. The mag carrier is one of the best I've seen in kydex in terms of quality; however, it's a bit bulky. It could be much slimmer with a clip, not a large paddle that's bigger than the carrier itself.
This is my third holster from Vedder, my second Lightdraw. The quality's the same every time. I've tried many from major companys and currently busy replaceing them with Vedder products. I wasted a lot of money on holsters that did'nt make me happy. Don't do the same!
The holsters fits my gun great and the ability to adjust the retention is very handy. For an OWB holster it conceals realty well.
This is the most comfortable holster I own. Much better than IWB Holster. Very comfortable. Thinking about getting one for my 43x
Fits my S&W M&P 2.0 absolutely perfect. Clicks and locks right in. Covers the trigger properly. Fit and finish outstanding as is the quality. I am extremely happy with it, highly recommended.
Excellent fit for my Sig P228 and also the previous one for my Glock 19 great quality. Would like to know if at some point you guys will be making one for a Glock 19 with stream Light TLR 6?
I'm a Glock 30 fan for concealed carry, but not a fan of IWB holsters. I tried a few other kydex and leather OWB holsters, but none of them conceal better than the LightDraw for me. I use the 1 3/4" pancake wings and it disappears under a shirt. I like the full sweat guard and the positive click when holstering.
This is my first full kydex holster. I got it for my Sig P320 compact and it works great. Very good retention, comfortable and the pancake belt loops work well for concealment.
I began checking out Holster reviews on YouTube about 6 months ago. A lot of reviews. I came across a couple of Vedder Holster reviews. I got a kick out of the YouTubers that had a box full of Holsters they had purchased and tried. I received the Holster in a timely manner, all things considered going on. I don't think I will end up with a box of Holsters. This Light Draw OWB is everything I could have asked for. The fit with my S&W Shield 9mm is better than expected and it is adjustable if I need it tighter or more lose. One and Done.. !
I picked this up for use at matches and just like all the other Vedder holsters I own, I love it!
All I can say is wow! From the moment I received this holster I was very impressed. From the looks, fitment, and build quality I can honestly say this holster is top notch and I am glad I chose Vedder. For my body type which is on the slim side, the standard clips work really well to make sure the holster hugs up nice and tight to your body for excellent concealment. There aren't too many options in the market right now for an owb holster to fit this pistol but thankfully I found Vedder holsters and I appreciate you making excellent products that are American made...
I purchased a Vedder holster and am very happy with it. It shipped promptly and fits my gun perfectly. I would definitely recommend these holters to my friends.
Amazing quality products that I have purchased. I ordered two weeks before my defensive gun course and the estimated time to get them was going to be past my course training dates. I contacted Vedder and they were going to get the order out quicker, but they got it out the same day and gave me free upgraded shipping. I got the order before my course and had an amazing time with their gear! It is hard to find that kind of customer satisfaction these days in any company. All of the products I ordered were of top quality and will last for years to come! Will be ordering again and recommending to anyone that can use their gear!
This is the forth OWB holster I've purchased in the last 6 months, trying to conceal the Glock 30. The first two were lesser known brand kydex and third was a quality big name leather. They all printed under a long sleeve T-shirt. I received my Light Draw today and wore it all evening. The Light Draw DOES NOT show under my T-shirt, is exceptionally comfortable, is easy to put on/take off, and feels like the weapon is secure. I've finally found THE holster!
Sorry to say I see little pride in some USA products. This holster and these people are the exception. Great holster, quality made and great people to work with. The holster fits well and does accommodate a red quite easily.
Quality made holster, kryptek typhoon. Tight lock up. Sweat guard was a little higher than the slide, a little usual but no major issue.
Holster is built well and is comfortable. Would recommend getting the pancake style clips to keep holster from leaning away from your body. Shipping was fast, I will be ordering more from Vedder in the future.
One of the best holsters I could have found for my new gun and I love it! Use it at work every day and it is so comfortable and stays on the belt where I like it all day
excelent fit and finish as always
This is my second Vedders light draw holster. I got the holster in and thought there was problem with fitment, I contacted Vedders on the chat feature and they got right on my complaint. Turns out it was my fault, and nothing wrong with the holster at all, but I was impressed with the Customer Service people should I ever need anything, or actually have a real problem. Good holster, very comfortable. I carry a Glock 43X in this holster every day for at least part of the day. I would buy vedder holsters again, should I need another holster.
Great holster, the cant is at that sweet-spot angle where I can carry it both at the 3 o' clock or crossdraw at the 11 o' clock if I want to print less. Fits like a glove and the pancake clips are stellar at distributing the weight of a full size handgun.
I have four Vedder holsters now, they are all great products. I recently purchased the Lightdraw for an upcoming class. I found I didn’t like the sweat guard and needed it removed in a fairly short time frame. Vedder responded in less than 24 hours, had it modified and back out the door in one business day! One week total turn around time. Awesome company.
Just received my 5th or 6th Vedder holster.Customer service was fantastic and the fit, as usual, was fantantastic as well! Great job!!
Best OWB Kydex holster on the market!
I'm 5' 6" and 150 lbs. and I can now carry my Glock 22 in this OWB under a light shirt / coat every day with my Core belt
Very comfortable holster; I forgot I even had it on. So comfortable in fact, I put it on upside down, and couldn't tell until l tried to slide the pistol in! Oops!
Great product that is well made. Would buy again.
Save yourself time and money online and just stay with Vedder. Top craftsmanship with great selection. Best OWB holster that I own. I'll be getting this model for several other of my handguns.. Really comfortable and the pancake clips pull gun and holster close into the body for good concealment. Thank you Vedder.
Like the look and color. Decent price and a good product.
I had a difficult time finding a holster that would fit my SIG P224. The fit is perfect and the holster is easy to wear. It is everything that I hoped it would be. You can't ask for more than that.
Was looking for a holster for my Sig 1911 Extreme.. looked at a lot of different manufacturers.. kydex and leather..After reading about all the features of Vedder Holsters I took the plunge.. couldn’t be happier!! I ordered the light draw with the pancake belt loops. All I can say is wow!!.. Carrying a full sized 1911 can be a chore! At almost 40oz of stainless steel it’s not for the faint of heart to carry that kinda weight all day.. The holster came package in a quality pouch and shipping was fast .. Upon getting my holster I belted it.The holster is quality and with the pancake clip spread the weight out evenly .. Yhe holster is slim, lightweight and made it a joy to carry such a large firearm.. I almost forgot I was wearing it!! Couldn’t be happier with my purchase and will definitely be a repeat customer.. and will tell everyone I know about this quality product
I bought this for my Springfield Hellcat! I color-matched it to the FDE color of my gun. It looks amazing. During the process of looking for holsters, I found that Vedder suited what I was looking for as far as options such as colors available, claw attachment, and varied angles on carrying from a straight draw or angled draw. I looked up youtube reviews to see what all the hype was about with Vedder holsters. I am a big fan and can't wait to purchase another one.You can change the retention of how it locks your firearm in place and it clicks into place when doing so. American-made and fast turnaround time especially during this time, what's not to love?
I struggled whether or not to move from my hybrid holsters (Kydex/Leather Back) to the Vedder Light Draw OWB all Kydex. But now my only regret is that I didn’t go with Vedder sooner. This holster is fantastic and I love the click to hold the pistol secure. Also, the wider clips work great for me, so I would recommend spending the few dollars to upgrade the clips. The Vedder belt I also bought fits much better in the wider clips. Vedder is a class act and I would encourage everyone to watch their factory tour on YouTube. They seem like such good people. I will be buying more Holster related products from them.
I’m not one to leave a review immediately after purchase. I like to actually put the item to use. I’ve had my light draw owb holster for several weeks of daily wear and use. First up is fit and finish. Top notch quality and craftsmanship. Exceeded my expectations. Next is comfort. For a kydex owb holster it is quite comfortable and sturdy. This is the best kydex holster that I have ever purchased. I have made several kydex holster purchases from some of the well known as well as less known manufacturers. I have never made a repeat or a second purchase from any of them. Not so with Vedder. I will certainly make future purchases from Vedder. Vedder has earned my respect and future business. They a worth every penny and are a pleasure to business with. Buy quality, you’ll be glad you did. Five stars all the way.
I've always used an IWB holster to carry a HK USP compact before now. I ordered the LightDraw OWB because I wanted to be able to draw more quickly. I am very impressed with how easy it is now to grip my pistol with the 10 degree cant forward, and the holster conceals much better than I expected for OWB. I can wear it under a sport jacket or t-shirt with minimal printing, and it holds the pistol high enough where I don't need to worry about it showing at the bottom. After trying both kinds of belt clips, I prefer the standard ones. Great product!
Fits right next to your body
I’m a huge fan of vedder holsters I just got the light draw for my Glock 19 and I love it. When I first ordered it fedex lost the package I called vedder and spoke with sandy and she got me a new one made and shipped out the very next day. By far one of the best companies out there
The OWB LightDraw fits my 3.6” like it was made for it! Fit, finish and customer service are outstanding!! Could not be happier!!!
Holster arrived and as expected looked amazing. I had not yet found a holster that was at all comfortable carrying my 1911. Now it’s my favorite carry option with the pancake belt slots.
The quality of this holster is top notch. I would say it looks and possibly feels better than my Bravo Concealment holsters. The one draw back is that it doesn’t hold the weapon as close to the body as my Bravo Concealment holsters. I can’t carry concealed wearing a fitted polo or t-shirt with this holster. The weapon sticks out too much. Great for open carry or the range. I do love the adjustable retention of the holster.
I am a 73 year old retired law enforcement officer. I hold a CCW and carry almost daily. My son uses one of your holsters, and suggested your company to me. I was unfamiliar with the hard material used to construct your holsters and I was a little skeptical of how it would work. I have had years of experience with open, and concealed carry holsters. I must say I am extremely impressed with this holster. The unique retention system is rock solid and smooth. The problem I have always had with leather concealed carry holsters was, momentary fumbling, to grasp and draw the piece. This holster presents the weapon for a quick grasp, and a draw like butter. I got both of the belt loops for more versatility, a nice touch. The comfort of wearing this holster is just amazing, and I have to get out of the habit of checking to make sure it is there (kinda defeats the purpose). I would recommend your products for anyone.
Like all of the VEDDER holsters I own for my firearms, this Light Draw is excellent! Well made and solid and fits my Browning Hi Power perfectly. I will be getting one for each of my firearms over the next few months.
I questioned if the holster would fit the XDM OSP so I emailed and had response very quickly that they do have a holster for the XDM OSP. The holster is great! It sits at the perfect height for me. The gun goes in the holster smoothly and securely. It draws just as smooth. I will be using Vedder to replace some less than stellar holsters on other guns I have.
Comfortable. Secure. Excellent quality! Excellent customer service! I've tried many companies, but will only buy from Vedder in the future.
Purchased a lightdraw OWB holster for my CZ P-01. Used it at a recent training class. Worked perfectly. Nice workmanship and very happy with the product. Would not hesitate to make another purchase.
Instead of starting a collection of various, not quite right holsters go ahead and get a excellent one. When you consider design, fit and function this is a value!
I am very pleased with this holster, it does everything I hoped it would. I'm glad I got both types of belt loops as it gives me more options. I would recommend it to anyone.
Bought one for each of my Walther PPQs, 9mm & 45. Fit & design are perfect for both. Good stuff at a right price. Oh yeah, service was good too.
Got this holster for my duty weapon at work, love it. Fits great on my belt and keeps it nice and tight to me. I got both sets of belt loops and they are both great, defiantly recommend the holster and the 10° cant.
Excellent, quality holster! I been through quite a few holsters but Vedder is the best in fit, finish and most important, retention. Not too tight, not too lose, and doesn't snag or hang up on the draw. It's retention is adjustable of course, but other holsters I've owned were adjustable too, and it didn't seem to make a difference. Vedder got it just right.
Before I stumbled across Vedder and their holsters I had been holding off for months looking for a holster for my Glock 19. Nothing fit the style Or the function I was quit looking for... THIS HOLSTER is exactly what I was holding out for. It checked every box I had for an OWB and it didn’t disappoint when it arrived! So many times I’ve had to modify holsters because the fit wasn’t accurate, but not this one it was spot on. Great adjustments, great retention and great belt attachments. Fit and finish was beyond expected. Great holster and a must have!!!
Awesome holster! Fits nice on waist and my Glock 45 slides in or out perfectly. Had a hard time finding Glock 45 holsters in my area and stumbled upon these guys. Love how you can get a TON of custom colors. I got the red carbon and its looks great. Highly recommend. I will definitely recommend to my friends/family....plus they add a sticker in there lol so its now on my cooler which is heavily used in summer for camping so I'll never forget the company name.
Great Quality, well built. Couldn't find other retailers that stocked a Glock 29SF holster. This fits like a glove. Get both standard and premium belt clips, you'll be glad you did, so many different options that way. Will be buying from here again!
Great company. Great service. Great holster. Thanks
I laughed when Vedder sent me an email to review my holster. So much attention to detail. CRAZY presentation. Something they definitely know because good work like that requires a lot of passion. Vedder Holsters just gained a lifetime customer. Thank you.
Recieved my Lightdraw OWB holster and Magdraw double OWB mag holster and all I can say is WOW! Awesome fit to my Glock 21sf. Retension is easy to set up and so far is extremely comfortable to wear. As soon as my S&W Shield gets here I'll be getting an IWB from Vedder.
I own Stealthgear, aliengear, Crossbreed and We the People holsters. So far, this one is my favorite. Easily adjustable retention, perfect fit. Make sure you get the upgraded clips though. I will be switching everything over to Vedder most likely. Don’t be afraid to go with this OWB holster, it will conceal very well, and be much more comfortable.
Due to the ick caused slow down it took a while to get my holster. I've got about zero patience so was about to cancel my order. SOOOOO glad i didn't. This is the single best holster I've owned. Great retention, good feel, and great fit/finish.
My wife and I each bought a holster and love the looks as well as how well they secure our firearms!
Kryptec Highlander color is well done. Fit on my SIG 226 MK 25 with RDS is perfect, but really tight even with retention screw backed out all the way. Draw takes some effort, but on the other hand, retention is great.
I have purchased and own many holsters from Vedder and they are all amazing. This one is no exception. Perfect fit, low profile, great color. Vedder Holsters are my go to holster
Fits my pistol perfect, color is spot on. Product is better than expected. Thankyou
everything fits perfect no issues
I currently have to holsters from vedder holster and couldn’t be happier. The second one I recently received is the light draw owb for a glock 17 and it fits and rides comfortably. No issues. The second is for my glock 26 iwb holster and still run it today and it’s been through the mill and still holding up! Thanks, for quality kydex holsters Vedder!
My order specified Red Dot Optic. The holster I received does not accommodate the P290 with the red dot attached, had to remove it for the gun to fit. Otherwise I have no issue with the Light Draw. *****VH RESPONSE***** Thank you for your recent purchase with us, David! We are always more than happy to cut back the kydex to allow for a RMR/red dot optic. If you reach back out to us via phone or by email through our "Contact Us" form, we will be glad to get this taken care of. We look forward to assisting you further! Have a great day. Take care, Jordan
Top quality. Fits both the firearm and me. It's exactly what I wanted and needed. Will definitely consider Vedder again.
Great fit and comfort love it will order again and again
Quality and attention to detail was excellent. Great customer service. I gave it 4 stars only because the bottom edge rubbed on my hip bone causing discomfort.
Screws came out of the belt clip. Made attempt to contact customer service to address the issue but never recieved a response. The retention was great though **VH COMMENT** Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We recommend checking the hardware regularly. You can also apply a thread locker to help prevent the hardware from backing out. We will have someone reach out to you from our customer service team to assist.
This was not my first purchase from Vedder. Once again I received Great Value for Holster I purchased. From the ease of navigating the web-site to the delivery, everything was great. When I went to try the gun in the holster, it was a perfect fit and retention. No adjustment was necessary. I will continue to recommend Vedderfor their holsters and belts. Jim
This was the only company I could find that would make a war belt compatible holster that would fit my fairly unique HK pistol. Make sure to order the pancake clips if you want it for a duty belt. The fit and quality are astounding. I even returned my Safariland holster which was twice as much and didn't fit my pistol half as well. Support a family owned business while you still can in this country.
Ordered this holster for my new p365. I am beyond pleased with my purchase. The fit is great, the quality is great, and the kryptek Neptune finish looks awesome. I highly reccomend this product.
Very nice holster, I bought the storm gray carbon for my 5” PPQ and looks awesome and feels awesome, even a large gun like that is close to the body with a tight fit. My only complaint is the long lead time, especially during the Kung flu pandemic but that can’t be helped I guess.
Ordered my Lightdraw Glock 19 for my Shadow Systems MR920. Even with the slide and sight alterations the fit is perfect. It looks fantastic, the draw is smooth, and the retention is great. Comfortable, secure, and modern holster that looks and feels solid. Great value, and communicative staff.
I'm the guy who buys cheap holsters and has a drawer full of them. Of course none of them really work the way I want so I decided to spend the money on something better. As a bigger guy I had a hard time with IWB and I needed an OWB that could conceal like IWB. While generally impossible, I was incredibly impressed at the concealability of the Lightdraw. I can conceal under a tshirt with no problems at all which is exactly what I was trying to get with other holsters. The craftsmanship is amazing for the price but the function is what I'm most impressed by. Make sure you buy the pancake clips for better concealment, they really should be included by default. Also, buy the Cobra belt as the marriage between the Lightdraw and the belt is a match made in concealment heaven. I'll be buying this holster for all of the guns that I have that Vedder will make them for.
This is my favorite holster. It is also my first OWB holster. In my experience, I have print issues (i.e. padding around the middle) that has me wearing a loose untucked shirt with any of the IWB holsters I own. I wear this with my compact and it actually prints far less than my IWB for the same sidearm. Sitting, moving, riding in the car, I barely notice it’s there.
Pro Draw OWB - perfect fit for my Sig 365 XL with reflex. Holds close to my body and easy on and off. Light Draw OWB holster - Hugs my body with a nice high ride. Very, Very comfortable. Really hides my weapon easily. Best holster i own.
Perfect Fit Great Holster
Fantastic holster. With the pancake clips my Glock 17 rides very tight to the body and is extremely comfortable. Conceals with a slightly loose t shirt. Out of the several holsters I own of this type from some of the other big manufacturers, I consider this THE industry standard. Vedder “gets” concealed carry. Thanks Vedder!
I have several OWB holsters of this style from several of the big name Kydex holster Companies and I have to say this is THE industry standard. I can carry my Glock 17 under a modestly loose Carhartt tshirt and you would never know it is there, and it is extremely comfortable... like it is not even there comfortable.I think the pancake clips are the game changer, those clips, combined with the holster design itself, really pulls the gun into your body. Highly recommend..,,and a nice company to do business with as well.
I came across this holster while looking for a more comfortable, solid Kydex holster made of real Kydex (not that cheap boltaron crap that quickly scratches up your gun) as I was looking for a more comfortable OWB holster. I decided to give Vedder a try since Vedder uses Kydex T (one of the higher grades of Kydex). I am very impressed by the fit of the holster. The gun draws & slides into the holster smoothly, but is still held firmly in place inside of the holster. That is a very good & unique combination. The gun does not move around in the holster at all, and it has a retention screw to loosen if the holster feels too tight. I had to slightly loosen mine to get the perfect fit. The holster holds the gun in place and the gun will not fall out when held upside down. Yet the gun still draws smoothly and almost effortlessly when intentionally removed from the holster. The holster is comfortable to wear for the most part once you find the “sweet spot” on your belt line. The only reason this holster is not 5 stars is because it didn’t quite reach the level of improvement I was looking for in regards to comfort. It is about as comfortable as the other brand of Kydex holster I was using before, but maybe slightly more comfortable. I ordered my holster with the “premium pancake belt loops” that cost an additional $4.99. They seemed to help hold the gun/holster closer to the body, but they were not quite as comfortable as I had hoped. The pancake belt loops seems bigger, bulkier, or maybe stiffer than I imagined they would be. It’s still a comfortable holster overall. However, it’s definitely not the most comfortable holster I’ve ever tried. There are some other companies that use “leather wings” or “pancake style belt loops” that more conform to the body more comfortably. However, some of those holsters don’t have as nice of a fit as Vedder does. I’m considering ordering another one of these holsters for a smaller gun like a compact (Glock 19 size) or subcompact gun and seeing if the “premium pancake belt loops” are more comfortable on a smaller holster/gun. I definitely plan on ordering another holster from Vedder at some point though as this is an excellent holster overall.
I use this as a weekend around-the-house holster. I can keep it concealed from guests and kids but i can also wear it loose on my hip giving me a break from appendix carry. Super comfy. And I can tighten it up if I really don’t want to print. This and the Light Tuck are a good combo if you carry AIWB but need something else more comfortable from time to time.
Unbelievable retention as well as unbelievable comfort great concealment for an outside the waistband holster for my Sig Sauar P-220 Rail
Just received my holster, one day early! Great price , great holster, great delivery time! Fits tight to the body, great fitment with my crimson trace laser on my Glock 43x.Good adjustment screw and hardware . I have carried cancelled for over 25 years, and am a Glock advanced armorer. I have had many , many holsters over the years. I love this one and you get a choice of clips.
I usually wear your Light Tuck but this one is too large for me. So I ordered the Light Draw. Nice fit as usual. Thanks Vedder.
Can’t say enough about how great the Lightdraw holster is. I have a K&K P30SK and it is absolutely perfect fit and finish. I got the new tooling version and is awesome. I also recommend getting the Vedder belt and the upgrade pancake style looks. This thing locks into the belt and does not move around or tug on your pants. The P30SK melts away with this holster and you absolutely can’t feel the gun at all on me at my 165lbs size. Also conceals so well, I see myself using this year round, the back of the holster protects your skin from the gun even without a teeshirt.
I wanted to upgrade to a full Kydex OWB holster to replace a leather slide holster that I was retiring from use. This a very well-executed design. It holds the gun securely and close to the body with either set of clips. It is very fast, is quite comfortable to wear for extended periods and while driving. It is a pretty good competition holster (IDPA) as well. Thanks! CJ
These are awesome. Better than the competition’s similar design. Buy the Vedder. I have 5 of these.
Fit and finish is fantastic, perfect for my handgun, and conceals better than expected under a coat. I opted to getting both sets of clips; stock ones seem easier to get on and off, and the pancake ones seem easier to conceal. I highly recommend this as an OWB option!
My lightdraw is an amazing fit with my Glock 17. Excellent feel against by body, great retention, and there are no unfinished edges on the kydex. There’s a nice rub guard that keeps the slide off my skin. I plan on getting the iwb holster for another firearm in the future.
Ordered the OWB holster after borrowing the same model from a friend. Fit and retention for my M & P 9 is excellent. The holster rides high and close in which I prefer and the comfort factor is great. I am able to get in and out of a very low personal car with zero adjustment of the holster as I comfortably slide into the car. Workmanship and materials are excellent.
I bought my first gun about 10 years ago. I did not grow up with guns, so I went to the Internet to figure things out. But while this helped in my journey thought something new, one thing totally eluded me. A holster that worked. I tried several name-brand holsters, for several different pistols, and NONE really worked. They didn't stay on me. The gun didn't stay in the holster. The holster didn't stay on the belt. It was a nightmare of fiddling with the holsters to get them to work. Things had to be tightened and then re-tightened, adjusted and re-adjusted. Then, and I don't remember where, I heard of Vedder Holsters, just another name, but what did I have to loose (except space in my "box of holsters that don't work" that most of us seem to have. My LightDraw came, in just a few days, I took it out of the bag, strung it on my belt, and it was WONDERFUL. No fiddling, no adjustments, it holds my gun firmly in EXACTLY the same place every time. I can for the first time draw and re-holster my gun with my eyes closed if necessary. It was possible, it is possible, I KNEW it. It made no sense to me that there are so many great guns out there, and not a single holster that works.
I dont really care for this holster. My firearm is a Kimber ultra 1911. The design of the kydex holster makes the weight of the firearm sit so high above the belt that at times it feels as if it will tumble over. The shipping presentation is nice but I cannot use this holster. I will send back within the 30 days if my time will allow but overall I am disappointed with the holster and unhappy about shipping back for a refund. I called the customer service number 2 times after I received the holster but was on hold for 10 minutes + each time and hung up. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster, we are so extremely sorry to hear this. All of our holsters are handcrafted to the exact gun model listed and will have an exact fit. If the holster does not meet your needs, you are welcome to send it back for a refund. We are sorry to hear about the hold time, that is not typical of us and we will have our customer service manager reach out to you immediately to better assist.
I have ordered several products from Vedder in the past. This time I needed a holster for a pistol that was not on their list. I ordered a holster based on the closest thing to my pistol on the list, and then sent a note in the instructions section. When the holster arrived, it was perfect! And I mean perfect, even with a threaded bbl. and tac rail. Nicely done, Vedder Holsters!
After having a gun jam into my thigh for a long drive down windy curved roads I thought wow, this sucks. If it went off and shot me I'd probably fair better. Luckily for me my leg went numb so I forgot about it mid trip. But it lead me to search for better carry options. Moreover on waist band. Best choice ever. You just need a loose fitting button up or a light jacket even and it disappears. Highly recommend. I can't imagine large guns would fair to well though. I have a glock 23 and my shirt just barely reaches to cover it. But anything in the realm sized no larger than a compact glock and you're solid. As for pancake clips or basic default clips I don't see much a difference. I do however run the pancake clips and they're worth the additional cost in my opinion.
As someone who carries daily, and as an instructor for my state's license to carry program, I've come across and used a lot of holsters. I'm also asked by students on a routine basis what holsters I recommend. Without a doubt, the Vedder Light Draw OWB holster is the best kydex OWB holster that I have used. The shape of it helps in concealing its outline, even when carrying concealed under just a t-shirt. I prefer the pancake style belt loops with mine. This won't be the last Vedder product I purchase.
I absolutely love my holster! It’s sleek, comfortable, and has the perfect amount of retention to keep me secure in the fact that it won’t come loose while hiking or bombing around town. I previously has an IWB holster from a different company and didn’t carry all the time due to discomfort. I barely even feel my sidearm with this holster, so I now carry EVERYWHERE I GO.
Outstanding holster. The only issue I have is I bought both belt clips because I didn’t want to ruin my belt. I found out that the pancake clips were useless as they allowed the holster to move around no matter how tight I made the belt. I reinstalled the standard clips and will have to live with a distorted belt.
Great product, good quality,very happy with the product.
Fantastic product I finally found a good holster for a discounted gun and I could choose a camouflage color to use for hunting
Super comfortable holster. Holds weapon well.
pleased with this owb holster. ordered it for my S&W Shield, fits great.
Finally sprung for a holster for my Walther P22 after keeping it in a range bag when I went to shoot it. Now with the holster, the gun isn't dinged with all the other range stuff. Materials and fit are great.
Perfect fit with a snap in click with my HK P30SK. It fits close enough for great concealment with a light jacket or loose overshirt. The extended belt loops make it mold better around my body and give me a greater range of adjustment.
Ordered my OWB Holster for my Glock 29SF and got it in 5 mailing days. The fight is PERFECT. Had to make one minor adjustment on the retention screw but excellent craftsmanship. This is my 5th Vedder Holster. As an Instructor, I provide my students with multiple calibers to experience. Vedder -- always the best choice!!!
Light draw holster. Awesome owb. Hard to find one for my sp2022. The pancake loops were a good decision for me. They are the best I've seen. Thick and super strong. The handgun draws really smooth out of the holster and conceals extremely well. I will be using it more when the weather turns cooler. When I'll be wearing more jackets. You guys do a awesome job. Thanks
First purchase from vedder everything went smooth except for applying the coupon code which didn’t but that is minor. Needed a holster for a g17 this is it but order the pancake style belt loops so you can customize your mount to your body type
Comfortable and no printing. Adjustable retention. Well worth the cost.
A wide selection of customization options. Fast response. Perfect fit to pistol. Rides high on the belt and tight to the body with the pancake clips. All the edges are buffed smooth leaving no sharp edges anywhere. Vedder simply has better attention to product detail than other holster competitors. I am a repeat customer and keep coming back.
Sig 320 RX Compact with Romeo 1 red dot. Holster fits very well nice high and tight ride. Shot my first 3 gun with it. Works perfect.
I’ve tried other holsters. I know better. None beat VEDDER for form and function. They’re specialists. I also really appreciate the variety of colors and patterns available to make the holster uniquely ‘yours’. Keep up the fine work, folks.
This was my first Vedder product. Very pleased with the construction, design and function of this holster. The pancake loops hold this holster very close to my body and it is very much concealed. I have not tried it with the standard belt loops yet,
Love Vedder holsters, only holsters I buy
I use this holster for a very large pistol, conceals well as I could expect any OWB holster to do so, better than anything else I have for the Walther. I like to carry vertical whenever possible on my strong side, this holster delivers exactly what I was looking for, great retention and as best concealment as can be expected for my monster sized Walther PPQ in 45ACP. In the summer I wear a concealment vest over a large long tailed Tee - and with this rig - it disappears. Retention is excellent as well as security by riding high tucked under the upper portion of my arm while seated. At 2:30 - 2:00 position this holster allows access to front pocket on my jeans AND my seat belt will fit easily between me and my pistol giving me unrestricted access to my pistol while driving a car. I will likely get one of these for one of my large Beretta's also.
The LightDraw OWB by Vedder is my new favorite holster when compared to both leather and Kydex from other manufacturers. Combined with the Cobra quick release gunbelt, this set up allows for either concealed carry or entry level competition USPSA functionality. The holster allows for retention adjustments that suit both situations. If you are looking for a setup that is multiple purpose and also rides comfortably all day, please consider the LightDraw OWB with the Cobra Quick Release belt. Vedder will not disappoint. Not to mention the lifetime warranty! http://www.vedderholsters.com?afmc=9f&utm_campaign=9f&utm_source=leaddyno&utm_medium=affiliate
This is a very nice holster. The custom modifications made to it at my request were an added bonus. If I had to change one thing I would remove some of the excess kydex from the bottom of the holster to reduce its overall size.
Great holster, great retention and very comfortable and easy to conceal.
Solid, well made and very comfortable. The people at Vedder are very responsive. They did everything I ask for. These guys are the real thing. Highly recommended.
Over the years I have spent hundreds of dollars on various holsters for many different weapons. As a LE w/over 37 yrs of service I have worked undercover, homicide and patrol. Without a doubt this is the best holster I have ever owned. I have both IWB and OWB. Both are extremely comfortable with minimal print. The IWB clip is extremely sturdy along with all aspects of the holster. I would recommend the claw for summer wear. What else do you need, simple, well made and very comfortable. The only regret is that I didn't buy Vedder holsters years ago. I highly recommend Vedder holsters and have done so to family, friends and co-workers.
Could they make a better holster? Yes, but I don't think a holster that jumps off the table and does the dishes exists yet, so we're at the best on the market until then. It feels tight, perfect fit and nice snap for a draw, recommend the pancake clips for easier concealment, standard clips for open carry. It is a lot smaller than you'd think - or at least I thought. Due to my wardrobe, I can only wear this with jackets or Hawaiian shirts to conceal it, but even then it is easy enough to conceal and quick enough to draw. Dang, its a pretty great holster, just need one for every firearm I own. I'm going to get everything else on the menu when I have the cash to broaden my horizon. I'm getting an OWB for my GF, for my eight year old brother, my mailman, and the family cat.
As a small female I am amazed and just how low profile this holster looks on my body. Actually very concealable owb carry with the right shirt. I grabbed a Light Tuck for when I don't wear a belt. Love them both.
I ordered my very first Vedder holster for my M&P 2.0 because the brand I wanted didn't make the particular holster I wanted for my gun so I decided to try another company. I'm glad I did cause Vedder has excellent quality and I am a extremely hard customer to impress so that says something about their quality. It is no fault of theirs but I decided that owb isnt concealable enough for me so I only use this holster now when I'm out in our UTV trail riding. You never know when a black bear will show up. I have since ordered 2 other holsters from Vedder and they are both of excellent quality as well. I think I found my new favorite holster company.
I do TONS of research before I order something, particularly if it will be for daily use, and even more so if it is something that provides safety. After chatting with Vedder support online, I knew I would like working with them-- they were super attentive and had all the answers I needed. I ordered my OWB holster for my Glock 21, and even though it is a full size pistol, I can comfortably conceal it when wearing my sport coat. Just what I wanted. Very comfortable and it has a great fit with the weapon. I ordered both kinds of clips and find them both very comfortable. I'll be ordering another holster for one of my other guns before long!
This was my 4th holster from Vedder. My first 3 were literally perfect; from the shape, lines, fit, retention, and even the texture. I truly wish I could give more than 5 because their holsters deserve all 5 stars, no debating that. Their customer service deserves some extra stars beyond that. My most recent order arrived with some small errors and this is where those extra stars come in. Kaitlin was the employee that personally handled my inquiry. I received fast responses and they went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. I have dealt with some great companies and Vedder's customer service blows them all out of the water. Vedder all the way. Only holster company I will ever buy from or recommend.
I enjoy probably 8 Holsters’s from Vedder. Both IWB and owb. I found this owb for my sig 320 to be like my other holsters. Both comfort and fit were excellent.
This is the 3rd Vedder OWB holster I have purchased. another excellent product from Vedder!!
Holster might be the best I've tried and really like all the design options. Just don't skip out on a belt like I did at first because it makes a huge difference. 32icon on YouTube sent me here and glad she did.
This is the second lightdraw OWB holster I've bought from Vedder and it's even better than the first. The first one I bought was for a full size CZ 75 and it's great except for the zero cant which makes the butt of the gun print more under a jacket or coat. That was my mistake. This time for my Glock 19 I went with the forward cant on this holster and it carries perfectly for an OWB holster. As long as you have your belt tight the firearm stays snug up to your body, the forward cant eases concealment under a jacket or coat, and the adjustable retention screw allows you to dial in that sweet spot of not too loose on the weapon retention and not too tight for the draw. Perfect!
I got the owb holster for my glockenspiel g40 10mm. Very nice materials and construction should be indestructible. One problem, very tight. Loosened screw until it fell out, no change. Difficult to draw gun smothly with it that tight. I like it secure, but if confronted with an angry black bear want it out pronto. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. All of our holsters are molded to the exact gun model listed and will have an exact fit. The holster should not be as tight as you are describing. We will have a team member reach out to you to offer assistance. Have a great day!
Over the last 15 years I've tried many different guns and usually have worn IWB. After wearing my Steyr M9 A1 in your Lightdraw holster for a week I think I'll be sticking to Vedder holsters from now on. Faster to draw than any holster I've used and so light and comfortable I kinda forget I'm wearing it !! Good job Vedder !
The holster shipped and arrived promptly. Instantly became my favorite. I own holsters from Alien Gear and JM Custom Kydex and I prefer Vedder to them both. The draw is quite light, very easy, but not at the expense of security. You get that beautiful, distinct popping sound every time the pistol is fully inserted. A+
I received this holster for my G45 pistol and received my LE Discount (thanks)The fit,finish and retention are all excellent. Further the attention to detail as to the burnishing of the edges is also excellent. Overall an excellent kydex Holster, and I have several which to compare.
Quality is excellent but had to return as it did not fit my particular need. Vedder service is excellent!
I have at least 5-6 iwb holsters from vedder and absolutely love them, I got the owb and found that it was really loose on my vedder 1.5 belt. Spoke to vedder and they were gracious and were very willing to take it back but I decided to keep it and figure a way to make it work. The holster is great, just the belt loops are to big. Other than that I would and have recommended vedder
This is another high quality product from Vedder holsters. I am always pleased with their products. Great service, great products.
This is a super nice holster. You can tell that there is a high level of care that goes into these. I love that they are custom molded to your individual weapon. The retention is great, and although I only got black, there is a lot of cool color combos you can do if you’re into that sort of thing. My only comment would be to offer an option where you can remove the sweat guard plastic, some when they carry would prefer to just wear a tucked in undershirt and not have that thing poking them. Other than that highly recommend this holster!
I am truly not a review kind of person, unless I'm really impressed with a product. I got this holster in the mail and strapped it on and holstered my gun and was immediately satisfied. Fit and finish of the product is excellent and you can just tell it is a quality product out of the bag it's shipped in. Fit on my gun is perfect as is the retention. I can honestly say I'll be purchasing Vedder OWB holsters from here on out. Next purchase might just be an IWB I like this one so much. I see this holster lasting as long as the gun, very happy with this purchase.
I was hesitant to order a holster with out putting hands on it first. The previous reviews had me try this holster. All i can say is that it is perfect for my purpose. Fit is great for conceal. I will be ordering another soon for other pistols.
I ordered the Litetuck OWB for my Glock 43X, it has perfect fit just as my other Vedder holsters, there is great detail to finish, with all edges rounded and polished, I got the pancake belt loops, which help pull my gun real close in to my body, but not so close that drawing my gun is a challenge, I highly recommend this OWB holster...
Extremely pleased with the quality of the kydex and the fit of the gun in the holster. The holster conceals well on my husband, and it will last him a long time even tho he is hard on things. I especially loved the thickness of the belt "loops" and the way it connects to this holster. The curvature fits perfect for where he carries on his side. This is probably my 6th different holster manufacturer, but this one I will definitely come back to.
Great and comfortable holster works great for my Springfield xdm 10mm 5.25 inch barrel
For reference, I'm 165# and 34" waist. The PX4 is a little more rare than some, so finding a professionally made OWB for it available in LEFT handed no less, is great! I own the IWB LightTuck for this pistol as well. Under an over garment, the LightTuck is slightly more concealable than the LightDraw with pancake loops for this rig, but the OWB is way more comfy for all day wear and no need for "gun pants". If I had more of a butt, I think the LightDraw might even conceal just as well, but as it is, I may have to make some foam wedges for the inside-bottom of the holster to get the pistol grip better against my back (8 o'clock position)...not Vedder's fault, but worth noting for those of us buttocks challeged individuals. Fit and finish is great, retention is awesome. As it's for CCW, colors are not a priority, but it's great that I can match it to my everyday khaki pants to blend in. All-in-all, this is my favorite holster.
The attention to detail and craftsmanship are excellent. There are no rough edges and the retention is awesome. I absolutely love the carbon fiber designs and the color choices are superb. Homerun Vedder.
Thanks Vedder! Top Quality Product,Shipping Time, and Service!
I received this holster today after owning other holsters. I definitely find this holster much easier to use. Bought this for my XD Mod 2 with 1.5 inch belt loops and feels like I do not have it on as it feels lightweight. Would recommend this family owned company to others looking at buying one and will return as future buyer.
Very nice and comfortable I ordered the pancakes belt loops with the holster and I removed them and put on the standard belt loops I’m leaving them on I think I like them better still pulls the holster in close and frim to my waste fits big Glock 21 very nice and solid now I’m getting ready to order another holster for my Glock 30 next. I’ve had a few holster and 5 stars is to low of a score for this holster
First let me say what an amazing company.. I ordered the wrong product and they went above what any company has done. Sent it back and they had me a new lightdraw to me in less than a week... Best holster I've ever had.. Finish A++ ...fit A++ ...will definitely buy from vedder again!!!!!
Excellent holsters has good retention solid click and it's locked in. Conceals very well.
Perfect holster. Exact fit for gun Solid retention very good conceil no print through excellent fit and finish good value
Very satisfied with your product. Its the best I ever had, ordered 2 more and hope to order at least 1 more in the future. I have three draws of holster that I have bought in the past. And its not just a few. None came close to what you offer.
This is my 5th Vedder holster for a reason, they work great. Function is flawlesss and being able to customize the color is an added bonus. Adjustable retention is a plus too.
I purchased one for my G19. I opted for the pancake belt clips and purchased one of the vedder leather belts which is a great belt. The holster is very well made and the pistol fits perfectly. I’m only giving this a borderline 3 could be a 4 because of the play of the holster on the belt with the clips. The holster moves around more than I like when drawing the gun. I feel like there is too much play between the clips and belt. If they could make the clips just a bit smaller I think it would compliment there belt better. Other than that it’s a great holster.
Always great holsters in fit and finish. My only reason for not giving a 5 star is the new design of the premium pancake clips. It’s a good concept but they are way too thick, they have no flex which when my belt is pulled through it leaves like a hump where the belt enters and exits the clips and because it doesn’t flex it doesn’t shape to the shape of my waist line. This maybe no problem for someone with a larger waist line but for me it wasn’t a good fit.
While receiving to holster from this organization what can I say what amazing job they did in my holster. also I'm very happy because one of my holster it's was a very special for my wife weapon (Sig Sauer p229 elite 40 caliber) It was really hard to find a holster OWB model for this pistol due to width of the frame and caliber. I also order for my 1911 Spring Field MC Operator and it fit like a glove I'm very proud to carry this Holster off duty and on duty extreme comfortable. Thank you Bedder Holster
Just received my OWB light draw holster & leather gun belt. And I have to say I'm very impressed on the quality of this products ,The service is second to none and what love about it is that it's made in AMERICA thanks to the VEDDER family.
Great holster. A little bigger than I thought it would be, but works great on my battle belt. As always will recommend your holsters to my friends.
Crazy fast shipping (ordered on Sunday, rec’d on Thursday) and top notch product. I’ve had several other holsters from larger and smaller companies and they really don’t compare to this one. Conceals well for an OWB, rides high and tight on the belt and the fit and finish is perfect. I love this holster
I meant a paddle holster for my Kimber micro 9. Sorry. Now I guess I owe you another Light draw holster order.
I have ordered a Lightdraw for my Sig p365. I made this order just on videos I have seen and reviews. I am sure it will fulfill all my expectations. Note that have I ordered in the past a total of 3 Lightucks as well as two pocket holsters from you and all have proven to be fantastic. I only wish very much I could have had been able to also order a Lightdraw for my Kimber Micro 9. Any chance of that being possible in the near future? Keep up your high standards in making one of the best holsters a person can buy.
i own a lot of vedder holsters better quality than anyone could expect . always pleased with products and service.
This is by far the best and most comfortable holster I've owned. Fit and finish is excellent, fits my CZ75 PCR like a glove. Shipment is fast, customer service is top notch. I will be ordering another one for my CZ 2075 rami. Honestly, don't buy another until you've tried the Vedder holster.
Holster is everything I hoped it would be!
My holster arrived on time and was made to perfection. It is comfortable to wear and has to be the best made holster you can buy.
Excellent owb holster, perfect fit and holds gun close to body, makes my XDM 10mm ride in comfort all day , Vedder makes quality holsters,
I have had this holster for a about a week now, and all I can say is I wish I purchased this one first. It’s comfortable, the quality of craftsmanship is awesome definitely will buy more for other firearms and will recommend it to anyone
My second Vedder holster. I was worried the sweat guard would pinch me when moving around. It has not. I am very happy with my purchase. It is very comfortable.
Ok was finally able to use the holster today and it worked just fine. Much better than I expected. It does fit snug to he body so it would be good for concealment purposes.
I love buying from Florida based companies since i was born and raised here. I needed a holster for my railed Sig 1911 tacops for a class i have this weekend. I placed my order tuesday morning knowing that Vedder has always shipped quickly and the quality of their holsters is excellent. 2 days later and i have my holster, the Kryptek Raid looks so much better than i thought it would and the adjustable retention is much appreciated. Vedder will earn my business everytime.
After i found vedder holster im spoiled that is my go to holsters for all of my guns i have an owb and iwb for each of my guns it get expensive but they are good holsters I still have 2 more guns that i need to buy holsters for i need to star saving money to get them because i won't buy any other brand good job vedder holsters you have a customer for life
The gun fits perfectly in this holster. When I first took the holster out of the excellent bag and set it on a table, I thought, this holster is huge, it’s not going to work. Man, I was wrong. This is the most comfortable rig I have ever worn. I also got the Cobra belt. Although the holster looked huge to me, after wearing it I think the size and design are the reason the holster works. The XD45 Tactical is a large pistol, but throw on a hoodie or t- shirt and it can be carried concealed in this holster and Cobra belt. I highly recommend this rig and belt. Thanks, Vedder!
Superb quality and fit and finish. I will be ordering more in the future. Very fast shipping as well.
While this holster has a solid build, it is too big and bulky to CC with a G19. Before anyone starts to jump up and down, I am able to CC a VP9 in a t-shirt with a different OWB holster with ease. I wish I would’ve gone with Vedder’s IWB light tuck **VH COMMENT** I am sorry to hear that your holster did not work out well for you. We do realize that each person does have unique needs when it comes to holsters which is one of the reasons we back all of our holsters by a 30 day money back guarantee and lifetime warranty. If your new holster will not meet your carry needs, we will be happy to process a return for a refund or an exchange for a LightTuck IWB holster. Just let us know how you would like to proceed and we will be happy to get this resolved for you. Thank you for your interest in our products!
great holster, my second one. love it . real fast delivery, just wish i would of known about this cyber monday sale . i would of waited and got the 15%off. but what can ya do, anyways, i highly recommend this holster, gun fits perfectly in it, same as the other one i have. very happy with it. will be ordering another 1 soon.
This holster is absolutely perfect for my SCCY CPX2! I would recommend it to anyone for concealed carry. It fits against your body in such a way that it is hard to see under a light tee shirt. For myself I would recommend also buying the wing clips for a change of pace when you want it to be even closer when wearing a suit.
I own 3 Vedder Lightdraw OWB holsters. The fit is perfect and holds the pistol snug. And with the premium clips, the holster hugs against your hip/waist. Such a great product. Thanks Vedder
Second holster from Vedder, first OWB I remain impressed!!!! Very solid product Highly recommend... I will be selling a AG system and switching to Vedder
Most comfortable OWB holster I've used thus far. Allows the firearm to ride higher so it's easier to conceal under jackets and coats that are shorter in length while still offering ease of draw and the ability to perfectly tune how much retention you want. I bought this for a full size CZ 75B and it works beautifully.
Outstanding Outstanding holster. Most comfortable I’ve ever used. Gun is secure and accessible. Waiting for the magazine pouch for my Sig.
This is the most comfortablholster I have ever wore outside the Waist I have tried many different holsters but I got to say this is the best I wore it for 7 days straight 16 hour days and still wear it very Comfortabl For sig p365 I highly recommend it.
Light tuck couldn't be a better name for this. It fits amazing,stays nice and snug me. From day one I knew thos was a great purchase.combined with the belt I couldn't be more pleased
This is my 5th Vedder holster. The quality is top shelf as is the fit for both gun and hip. I have purchased far too many holsters over the years and these are the finest !! Thank you Vedder !! Hint hint... mag pouches ?!?!?
I bought this holster for my SCCY last year and loved it. This year I upgraded to a M&P 2.0 Compact and wanted it again. WHAT AN UPGRADE!!! I'm so glad I decided to go with you guys again and with the internet flooded with all sorts of holsters this is the real deal and I wouldn't change my holster for anything else.
Excellent holster. Light weight, tight to my hip, and plenty of weapon retention from the holster. My 4th from Vedder. Actually recommended them to a new gun buyer yesterday as I was looking at the new G45 in 9mm. Outstanding product...buy with confidence!
This is my 6th. Vedder holster and as always the fit and finish is perfect. This OWB holster conceals as good as an inside the waistband and is extremely comfortable. Even though you wear it outside it lays flat enough that a summer shirt will hide it. As I always say Its better with Vedder.
I purchased a Springfield Range Officer Compact 1911 in 9mm, 4" barrel, 8rnd magazine. I purchased an IWB holster from another company, but found it difficult to get a solid, consistent grip coming out of an IWB holster. At times I would fail to initially release the grip safety and had to reposition my hand. I wanted to find an OWB kydex holster that would keep the gun tight enough to my body to be concealed. The the Vedder LightDraw OWB with pancake clips accomplishes this. I used it for the first time last night in my weekly shooting league and was great. I am very please. I only give the four star rating, because I ordered the holster with both the standard and pancake belt clips, but did not receive the standard clips. I've emailed Vedder and I am confident they will resolve the problem. I will likely eventually order another of the same for my full-size 1911.
It looks great – nice workmanship. The fit is good too – easy in, easy out. It’s secure without having to wrestle with it. It manages the size and weight of my P320C .45 surprisingly well. It rides close to the body making it more concealable than I expected. Comfort is not an issue – standing, sitting, walking, climbing stairs, even sitting on the floor, there are no annoying pressure points. The LightDraw OWB is everything I want it to be. There was a little problem with my initial order, but that was an opportunity to experience how awesome their customer service is. Their satisfaction guarantee is no bull. They are incredibly responsive and took care of everything, making it totally painless for me. Vedder is an example of what some other companies should strive to be.
The OWB the waistband holster from Vedder is excellent, the quality is some of the best I've seen. Rounded edges, and the finishing on the kydex is superior to almost any holster I've had in the past. The fit of the firearm in the holster is also fantastic, even though there is no active retention, the holster has a positive "click" when the gun is inserted, and I have no worries about my gun falling out. Also, while there isn't any suede or soft lining, the inside of the holster is cut so well, I believe the wear on my firearm will be minimal. Buy this holster, it is top notch!
I am very pleased with the owb light draw holster for my CZ P07. It conceals well under a Tee or Regular Shirt. Easy to draw from and retention is very good. Very well made and the edges are smooth. Try one and I believe you will be sold on the product.
I recently purchased the LightDraw OWB Holster for my Sig P320 everyday carry. I chose the black carbon fiber for the front and back panels, and they look and feel fantastic. I also added the pancake style belt loops and with a 1 3/4” belt they really hold the holster tight to my hip, greatly enhancing the ability to conceal my firearm. The LightDraw holster with the adjustable tension screws allowed be to fine tune the exact tension to securely hold my firearm and yet still allow for a smooth draw. The quality and fit of this holster is exactly what you would expect from Veeder Holsters, and the customer service was awesome. I can recommend Veeder Holsters without hesitation to anyone considering the LightDraw OWB Holster.
Ordered one of these for my Ruger LCP II and I'm completely satisfied with it! It fits the gun and my side perfectly, looks great and it's really comfortable. Very light weight and still durable this holster will be around a long time! I've never not loved any holster from Vedder and I'm sure happy with this one!
This is my second holster from Vetter. Both are for my Ruger EC9s. Love the adjustableretention and the overall quality of these holsters!
Well made holster for my cz P07.
I rate this holster as good as they come for owb holsters. Fit and finish is perfect. But mainly it is the most comfortable owb holster I’ve ever had. I ordered mine with the pancake clips and I forget I’m wearing it sometimes. Ordered 2 more for my other calibers. Needed customer service for order change and they took care of it right away on one holster order. Great company to deal with and their owb holster makes me happy.
This is a great Holster. I have 3 Vedder holsters now - iwb / owb) and love them all. They keep the gun solidly in place. The adjustable retention is great.
I purchased the holster for my Glock 21 .45 acp. I have a Vedder Holster for all of my pistols. The quality is unmatched from anything I have found so far. I have a drawer full of kydex holsters. These Vedder Holster are strong and well built. I have no problem recommend this product.
Great holster! Got one for my wife for her g43. She loves it! My next one will be a Vedder!
Best I’ve seen, and unfortunately I’ve seen plenty.great service, form and finish spot on. There are some other good vendors out there but Vedder is better in form and finish, I won’t use anyone else.
For a custom holster the turn around time was amazing. I’ve waited up to 6-8wks for previous custom holster though my Light Draw was shipped in less than 2wks. As for the holster itself, it’s perfect. From the fit and finish to the materials though mostly, the fit of my Sig P238. The retention is spot on with a smooth draw. The holster holds the weapon snug to your body for maximum concealment. For my future holster needs I’ll for sure be returning to Vedder.
I do have a question or a coment: Have you ever thought of making a Mid Ride OWB holster??? I'd really be interested in that. I like the duty style rigs. Let me know if you need more input, I'd love to assist any way if I could!!!
I finally heard about Vedder Holsters late last year and since November I've purchased several Lighttucks, Lightdraws, and Magtucks. Last week, I received two Lightdraw OWB holsters for a Sig MK25 RX and a Glock 19X. The fit and finish was the best I've ever had in kydex holsters. Another bonus was the versatility of the holsters to accept other pistols. My Sig MK25 holster also fit my Sig P227 perfectly. Likewise, my Glock 19X holster fit my Glock 19MOS pistol perfectly. Vedder made my requested allowances for suppressor sights, red dots sights, and threaded barrels and the holsters turned out great. I'll bet a lot of the people reading this review probably have a box full of holsters and will appreciate the ability to get some double duty out some of them. I plan on buying more of the Lightdraw and Lighttuck holsters in the near future. I just wish Vedder made holsters that would handle attached weaponlights (e.g., FNX 45 Tactical with Surefire X300 Vampire light, hint hint). Great job!
Great fit and finish, bought for a CZ 75 compact carries the weight of a fairly heavy gun very well. Thanks Guys
I purchased this several months after the Lighttuck. Had I known how close to my body this holster kept my G27 I probably would have gone straight to this. There is no more printing with this than with the Lighttuck. So comfortable I don't even know it's there. I have a TLR6 and XS Big Dot sights. Also the extended slide lock. Vedder made a perfect fit. I could not be happier. Thanks Vedder!
It doesn't get better than Vedder. This is my 5th. Vedder holster and as always the quality is unsurpassed. This is the most comfortable holster no matter whether I am sitting or standing and leaves no printing. I highly recommend Vedder holsters.
What a great holster..it hugs your body for a low profile look. I love it
Many years and too much time and money has been spent looking for this holster. I have two and just ordered two more. All I really need to say is thank you Vedder !!
After looking at OWB kydex holsters I n I rrowed down to a few companies. A couple big name kydex holster companies and a few others. After careful review and noticing a couple of the companies don't even produce holsters for levites, I narrowed it down to Vedder and one other. I watched numerous YouTube videos and read hundreds of reviews and decided on Vedder! And am I glad that I went forward with Vedder.The retention and comfort of the OWB Light Draw is by far the best that I own. Not to mention the lead time is far superior to any other kydex holster company out there! I'm talking a fraction of the time compared to the other companies. I will definitely be purchasing from Vedder again and I am more than positive I will be a life long customer. 5 stars is not a high enough rating in my book, they deserve more.
I was excited to try this owb holster after buying their iwb; lightuck holster, which is awesome. After trying this one for a while I have to say, I'm not overly impressed. Firstly, it marred the finish on my new cerakoted pistol--not good. Secondly, after paying over $90 for mine including extra for the pancake clips, they don't impress me much, the holster has too much up and down play, the clips should be tighter. In fact I contacted them thinking I had gotten the wrong size, but no, theyre supposed to be 1.75" on the large end for a 1.5" belt. Thirdly, and this may just be the nature of the beast, but there's no way I can drive with this thing on. It digs into my ribs badly. But it's not all bad, it's built very nicely, the kryptek finish is super and it holds the pistol nice and snug. It holss it in to the body pretty good as well. If it hadnt scratched my finish, we'd be talking 4 stars. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. We are sorry to hear that you are not 100% satisfied with your holster. The issue you are describing with the holster are not our standard and we will have a team member reach out to you to get this taken care of as quick and easily as possible for you. Have a great day!
I have been carrying concealed since 1973. I have been through a bunch of different holsters from many companies. Vedder holsters is a great company to do business with. The Light Draw is simply the best Kydex holster I own for concealed carry. I purchased it for my Sig P365. The fit and finish is excellent, the pistol fits perfectly and is well retained, with adjustment available to set to your liking. The design of the Light Draw and the "wing attachements" draws the holster close to your body. I wear at 4 O'clock and the P365 is well concealed under a t shirt or polo. I will order another if I decide to carry a Glock 19 over the P365. You can buy a cheaper holster, but my experience with holsters is you get what you pay for and Vedder's prices are appropriate for the quality you receive.
This is my 5th. Vedder holster and as long as I buy handguns they will rest in Vedder holster. The quality and workmanship is the best around and I have tried them all. Vedder is my only choice and will always be as long as they continue to make there holsters with pride. Tom
Love it my p320 .45 fits like a glove.
Great holster first and last I'll need for a long timw, amazing retention, and very comfortable, even with surgery on my hip I still can be comfortable while carrying so thank you vedder holsters
Very good fit and finish as usual. If I could change anything it would be to have a little less material below the muzzle because when I sit down the extra half inch it adds makes a difference with a gov't length 1911.
Far superior to Aliengear and it doesn't drop my magazine each time I holster my weapon! Only thing that would make this even better is if the weapon wasn't molded at a 90°. Large magwels need a little help being concealed. Others call it "torsion" but "they" dont know what a HK45 is.
Just about to order my fifth one, which should tell you how great I think they are.
Best OWB holster I've ever owned. So much better than the Alien Gear holsters I've been buying. Fit to the gun, fit to my body, is amazing. Quality is fantastic and you don't have to wait forever to get it either.
Using the LightDraw holster in combination with Vedder's 'Cobra quick-release' belt for my Glock 26. Very comfortable; conceals easily with a loose fitting T Shirt. Strongly recommend the 'premium pancake' clip upgrade. Fit and finish are typical Vedder quality. I really like the fact that it has a retention adjustment screw - most competing OWB kydex holsters do not.
Vedder holsters are all I will consider now. Definitely get the upgraded clips! Best holster I’ve owned.
I have been using a competitors brand kydex for awhile now. No complaints. I discovered Vedder Holsters. Look identical to the competitors model. However, Vedder has the added security of a tension screw near the triggerguard which the competitor does not. Also the edges on Vedder holsters appears cleaner and the added bonus Vedder holsters has a huge selection of colors which the competitor does not. Think I found my new holster supplier. Wish i found them sooner. Thumbs Up....
I will first start with, I really like this holster and wish I had bought one years ago. Now, I've been reading hundreds of reviews for the last several months and looked at several kydex holsters before I decided to go with a Vedder. My son and me bought my grandson a vedder holster for his pistol as a gift and after comparing it to other holsters, noticed that the edges were smoothed better and also noticed the kydex was thicker. It is formed better to the pistol than others and it has more of a curve to it so it fits against your side better. The Vedder in my opinion is just a better holster. I have a little ocd about my gear and I am very pleased with my Vedder. I also use a blue alfa gear belt with the cobra hybrid buckle and it will fit through the pancake clips without having to take the belt apart. I now have the perfect carry holster and belt.
One of the best holsters I have. Really like how light it is and how close it sits next to body. You won’t regret wearing this holster. Inward everyday.
Hello, just to let everyone know that this is a fantastic holster, ive had many and nothing compares to this one. conceals unbelvabilty well.does not print at all, with that click when holstered you know that your gun is goin nowhere.fit and finish is perfect. cant even feel that your carrying most of the time. im completly happy with this purchase, very fast shipment after you order, i highly recommend this for anybody lookin for a very nice,looking,fitting,and comfortable holster..
perfect fit for my cz phantom.well built and works perfect for a day of shooting. well built product would buy again.
Nice product. Waited a while to get time to try out at the range. Works great! Stays in same location on your belt and looks good too. Many thanks.
Great quality and comfortable fit. Customization was a nice feature.
My Glock mdl 22 fit perfectly into this holster and is secure without me having to make any adjustments. I tried the unloaded upside down holster shake and it passed the test perfectly. Yet, the draw is smooth and efficient. Great holster.
Very good quality, better than others I have had at the same price or in any price range. Very good in fit and details, done and shipped within a few days of ordering.I am giving 4 stars because one of the 2 holsters I ordered has the eyelets at the bottom flush with the edge of the kydex, but I am very likely buy more Vedder holsters.
Don't be fooled by immitations. I have a drawer full of OWB holsters. The quality and manufacture of this holster was well thought out. It's what you expect when you buy a holster. Will do a video review in the future
Holster fits perfect, quality assembly, timely delivery. My first Vedder but certainly not my last
I have to say when I was ordering the price point seI md a bit on the higher end. I got the FDE carbon Fiber and the pancake clips and hoped for the best. The holster arrives quickly and the craftsmanship is top notch. The fit and retention are very crisp. The finish is great especially the polished edges. What was most important to me was how well it would conceal. Almost know printing depending my on how you dress. This give me a great option to be able to conceal carry when my pants or shorts are too snug for an IWB with very minimal printing. Very well made. You get what you pay for. I’ll be getting a lot of use out of it.
Nice holster good fit, sets good on the hip.
I found the holster very comfortable. Retention is rock solid. My only issue is the butt of the gun sticks out, making concealed carry difficult. To be fair, I'm a large man carrying more gut than I should be. I rated it at four stars because it's a great holster, subtracting one star due to the design not being the greatest for concealed carry even with the pancake clips.
LightDraw™ OWB Secure fit, however this holster agles away from the body. Heavy printing on 3oClock strong side (and NO I don't have love handles that force printing). I went to my local hardware store and bought a PVC pipe fitting for $0.97 cents two nuts & blots and attached it to the bottom of the holster to creat a wedge. I have other make holsters that have the WEDGE option for their AIWB. Looks like Vedder missed the boat... "Make good, BETTER" ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. We are sorry to hear that you are not 100% satisfied with your holster. We do have a new Claw option available that is designed to help with printing. If you would like to reach out to our customer service team we are happy to get you set up with one for your LightTuck holster. If you decide the holster will not work out for you, we are more than happy to assist with the return. We hope this helps, have a great day!
I finally found a nice usable appendix carry holster for my Beretta 92FS Compact. Yes, the 92FS holster works with the compact model too. Thank you guys
This is my 8th Holster.....They just work all the time!
High quality product that holds your pistol close to the body. Great for OWB CCW, IDPA or time at the range.
OK- have to be honest. Haven't bought a holster for quite some time as I am a firearms instructor and have a holster sponsor - they provide me the holsters I want, etc. BUT - they do not currently make an OWB holster for the CZ PO1 that I just purchased (love this gun BTW) and I started doing some searching. I have to say...this thing is perfect. Nothing I don't need, everything you do need in a tight to the body, adjustable cant OWB holster. Fit & finish is top notch. Adjustment screw is perfect (it came ON THE MONEY though.) Ability to slightly adjust the cant is a nice adjustment available. The draw is super smooth. And, even though this gun is a (smaller) full size pistol, I can easily carry this gun strong side OWB and no printing. Now, I know that a LOT of how comfortable a gun is depends on the holster and the belt. I have a great carry belt, but I carried this full size all metal gun all-day right after I got the holster and it was a dream. Spread the weight well, rode tight against the body, etc. Really well done...and if you all are looking for an instructor to sponsor :-) I think we could work something out! Just sayin'..... Thanks for a great addition to the shop!
Couldn’t be happier with this holster! Fits close to the body for good concealment, gun draws great, good quality, well made with attention to detail. This is my second Vedder OWB holster. I have a third Vedder holster on order now!
Comfort is what I look for in a holster and I found it in the light draw OWB holster.. it’s a great holster with great adjustable retention you couldn’t ask for more..One thing to remember if you have a thick gun belt you will need the pancake belt loops it holds close to your body..Thank you Vedder it’s a great holster..
I am impressed with product, customer service and selection. Looking for a holster for Steyr m9a1. Hard to find holsters for this gun, Vedder had it,, shipped with in three days and I received withing a week. Holster fits perfect. This is one great company. Give you what they say, when they said it would be there. Will be buying more from them. Almost forgot, best prices anywhere!
This is my second holster from vedder. The quality is superb and the customer service is excellent. This won't be my last holster I order from them. I will also be ordering the belt system as well, I'm sure I won't be dissapointed! Keep up the good work guys!
Amazing fitment. Love this holster!
Best holster, I have two other light draws.
Very nice hostler. I really like the adjustable cant and it hugs my body but not to the point that it interferes with the draw. It is comfortable sitting and driving.
This holster fits my Springfield mod 2 45acp subcompact perfect. And the holster is comfortable to use. Totally worth the money
Great fit with red dot plenty of clearance.. No modification required.
I would strongly recommend this holster to all FBI agents that want to twerk and do back hand springs. Great retention, easy draw and extremely comfortable. Avoid those embarrassing little mishaps on the dance floor and invest in one of these.
Fits nicely but had to remove 1/4" with half-moon file to accommodate red dot
Great holster and great customer service. Would highly recommend doing business with Vedder !
Awesome quality product.would recommend to anyone. Only criticism is that it could be a little smaller it seem a little bigger than other products.
This was the fourth holster and the first outside-the-waistband holster that I’ve purchased from Vedder. I’ve been very satisfied with every one of them. Great products at reasonable prices. Prompt service.
Just buy it! You will not be disappointed!
I swore off kydex after a couple bad experiences which turned out to be more indicative of the maker than anything. Tried the Light Draw because I wanted an OWB that could take the summer time humidty, heat and associated sweat and grime as well as be durable enough to train out of pretty much constantly. After thousands upon thousands of draws and being carried from the time I put on pants in the morning until I go to bed, I've found a new favorite. Great retention and with the pancake loops, the holster is tight into the body without hampering the draw as well as staying put where I put it on the belt. Liked it so much I ordered an IWB with mag-pouch for the same gun and will order another OWB for my duty size.
P226 w/Sig Curved Rail fits my P226 Legion w/o having to break-in. I was able to use it right away. Will definitely buy another Vedder holster again
These are by far the best OWB holsters out there. I own 3 now and will go to Vedders first in the future.
I finally tried a Vedder Holster and now I'm a believer! From now on they will be where I go to get a holster for any handgun I own not to mention that their Customer Service is so helpful with any questions you might have! I just purchased their LIGHTDRAW OWB holster for my Glock 19 and the fit, function and quality is ABOVE AND BEYOND the rest! Look no where else, go with a Vedder!
Compared to other kydex brands this is by far my favorite for fit/retention and overall feel. I got one for my Glock 19 and another for my 43. Very pleased with how close to the body it holds the gun. Retention is secure but also not a struggle to draw from. Material feels like excelllent quality even compared to more expensive brands. Left handed holsters are also available (thank you) unlike with other brands. Forgot to note that my mag releases are flipped so the 43 holster pushes on it just slightly. My fault and an easy fix though.
There aren’t a ton of company’s making a holster specifically for the Walther PPQ 45 and this is hands down the best one I’ve found. I can gladly say that the rest of my holsters will also be replaced by a Vedder. Awesome product!
As most everyone has already said over and over vedders makes the best holster. I have 4 of them so far and they are awesome. The only problem I have is that I am really slim so the pancake loops do not work for me and I ordered the 1.5 inch ones but I think I could fit a 1.75 inch belt in them because there is slack when I pull the gun the holster lifts up quite a bit.
I ordered an OWB light draw holster recently for my Glock 26 that I have had customized by Loki tactical and was equipped with a Streamlight TLR-6. The holster works great, it is functional and retains the firearm very well. It conceals decently under a tshirt with a little bit of coaxing and finding the best position for your body type. If it was cut a little more around the edges and used a 15 degree cant I think it would be a little more concealable but I can't complain.
Hands down the best kydex holster I've ever had, and I've tried several other brands. Excellent retention, perfect fit, and rides very securely on the belt, particularly with the optional pancake loops. I've already bought two of these, one for my Glock 19 and one for my Glock 29. I'm about to order two more. You can't go wrong with this product.
I just got this holster in and instantly fell in love with it. I can't usually carry OWB but with this holster I can carry my M&P .45c with no printing because it holds it so close to the body. Definitely g getting more for my other firearms.
After 37 years with a concealed carry permit I find that Vedder are the highest quality kydex on the market, I just received my 2nd holster and am totally happy with both.
I previously rated Vedder holster products at 5 stars....not this one. Although it seems to be their usual high quality, it is much too large for an LCP. It fits the LCP well, but holster size obviates the whole purpose of the LCP's petitte dimensions, and is, basically, only good for carry around the house. *** VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holsters. All of our holsters are made by hand to order and sized to the exact gun model. We certainly want you to be 100% satisfied with your holster and the service you receive from our company so, we will have someone reach out to you to provide assistance or help you with a return. Have a great day!
Holster should work ok but a bit lack luster in terms of fitment, when compared to the light tuck model which is by far the best Kydex holster I own. The positive "snap" that I get with the Light tuck is missing in the light draw. It also does not lock up without rocking a tiny bit...which the light tuck does not do. Maybe unfair to compare these two holsters and if I hadn't gotten the light tuck first, I'd probably be giving the light draw 4 stars instead of 3. ***VH Comment*** Thank you for taking the review your holster. We are sorry to hear about the fit. We can defiantly get this taken care of for you as there should be a click. We will have one of our team members reach out to you to get this resolved. Have a great day!
Bought this holster because I wasn’t happy with the one I had been using and figured I’d give this one a shot because of how much I love the belt they sell. I couldn’t be happier with this holster, extremely comfortable, looks great, and holds my weapon very securely. The sweat shield is a great addition that doesn’t seem like a big deal until you go from a holster without one to this one. Will be buying the light tuck as soon as I get my Cpl! Keep up the great work Vedder!!!!!
As a new license holder, and a bigger guy, I've tried a number of different holster brands before *finally* spending a few extra bucks for this holster. For me, OWB is the most comfortable way to carry but working my belt through the standard plastic belt loops was frustrating and didn't bring the holster as close to my body as I wanted it to. This holster, with the premium pancake clips, is the best, most comfortable fit that I have found and exactly what I've been looking for. I'm very happy.
fits like glove outstanding quality...
Perfect fit, excellent holster. I have one for my Glock 21, Glock 19, and my wifes Glock 30S and her Glock 42. You won't be disapointed in Vedder holsters.
Great holster, fits my Springfield Mod 2 subcompact perfectly. Holds weapon pretty tightly to the body without the new claw...will add that and update if needed. Love the Vedder products.
I ordered one of these OWB holsters in Kryptek Typhon for my Glock 43 with Streamlight TLR-6. I could not believe how quickly the holster arrived considering I wanted a custom finish. I ordered a holster from Gearcraft holsters for another gun prior to ordering this one and it took 2 months to come in. The Vedder holster was shipped within a couple days. I'm extremely happy with the service and product I received. I have already ordered a cobra gun belt and another OWB holster for my Walther PPQ. Keep up the good work Vedder!
Well built. With pancake clips it pulls in tight to the body.
I just want to say so far the Light Draw OWB holster feels good and I'm on my feet all day. A well made Holster I will be getting one for my Glock 30 soon. Great turn around time after order placed. Keep on doing what ya doing.
I bought this for an XD 45 compact. The holster fits well and I like the construction around the perimeter of the holster. Unfortunately, Vedder does not take the extra effort to give the outline of the firearm sharp edges in the kydex. It looks as if they started the forming process and as soon as they saw the first sight of the farthest lines of the firearm they quit. They need to revamp their press as the other holsters look more defined. Perhaps this accounts for the lesser price as compared to their competitors, I don’t know. Also, I believe this is due to the forming process as well, the holster is very wide. If the mold was tightened up it looks as if some extra material could be trimmed. I’m an average sized guy, a 34” waist, so I have to wear this at almost a 5 o’clock to get it to lay down. The above is more aesthetic, but lends to my overall issue, as well as the following. When placing the order, I ordered a second set of belt loops, that were not included in my order. To be fair I contacted them and they immediately shipped them, free of charge. Unfortunately, they sent the wrong set of belt loops. Overall, it just seems to be a lack of attention to detail. I personally would pay a bit more for a sharper looking product, as well as ensure I get what I order. Maybe it was just my order that had an issue, but I’ll likely not buy from Vedder Holsters again. ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster! We are sorry to hear that you are not 100% satisfied with the holsters definition. All of our holsters are handcrafted to order and that should not effect the fit or function of the holster. Our goal is for you to be 100% satisfied with the holster and we are more than happy to assist you with an exchange for another with more definition if you would like. We appreciate your feedback and hope you have a gate day!
This is the first OWB holster I've gotten from Vedder. All the others were IWB. This holster is awesome and comfortable to wear. OD color is perfect.
This is a perfect fit for my fnx45 tactical pistol. I can't say enough about how great the fit and finish is on this pistol. I have the threaded barrel and raised site's for silencer.no problems with the fit at all. I recommend vedder holsters to anyone that wants a quality holster.
Perfectfit. Snaps firmly in place. Quality is outstanding. I will purchase another one for my next pistol. Would prefer a 15 degree cant.
After ordering the light tuck, I knew I had to come back for more. This thing is sturdy and locks your gun in place to stay. I had a small problem with my mag release and vedder fixed the issue, and did it all quickly, and with amazing customer service. Don't be afraid to try out this awesome company. You cant go wrong!
This product by far has the best retention out of any holster I’ve ever had. The craftsmanship is quite notable and for the price, you can’t go wrong! While I understand each holster is handcrafted, I would only wish for a bit of a faster turnaround time. Other than that, Vedder is certainly the best out there!
Use with the pancake clips. Carries my G19 tight to my body... conceals well... Comfortable while driving or sitting.
Very pleased with my holster for the Glock 19. Fits like a glove, well built. Very fast turn around time...
I received my Light Draw OWB holster last week and love it. My Sig P365 fits perfectly in the holster. The quality of the holster and materials are outstanding. I highly recommend this holster!
This is the second holster I have ordered from Vedder. Top quality and both fit my glocks like a glove.
I ordered this holster for my Sig Sauer 10mm Hunter pistol. This was my first Vedder holster but won't be my last! Fit perfect and I ordered it in the camo to match the weapon. Was surprised to see how fast it shipped! Highly recommend!
Best holster I've found for this sidearm yet. I only wish Vedder made a OWB double magazine pouch.
I ordered this holster for a Sig 365 as it was one of the only OWB holsters available for the 365. I wasn't expecting much and just needed a way to tote the weapon. I have been very impressed with this holster so far. Fit and finish are perfect. The pistol seats in the holster with an audible click, and stays put even when held upside down. The kydex has been smoothed and polished, and doesn't bite at all, you can barely tell it's there. Pistol sits high in the holster which I wasn't sure about at first but it conceals nicely, and disappears under a t-shirt. Overall, I would buy this holster again.
Purchased the LightDraw OWB Holster for my CZ PCR. All I can say is that I love it! I ordered it with both types of clips just in case. What I ended up doing was to invert the pancake clips and that way the holster comes closer to your sides. In other words, instead of having them raise away from the holster, now they sit flush in one smooth semi circle. Really pleased with it.
Very nice holster. With the optional pancake clips it hugs the body tightly. It is similar to Bravo Concealment which is less pricey but Bravo does not have the adjustable retention screw which is a very nice feature and one I was willing to pay extra for. If you prefer to carry in the 4 to 5 o'clock position, which is probably better for concealed carry, I strongly advise you order with the 10 degree cant.
Great fit and great comfort as well. They went above and beyond to make sure it custom fit my 2.0 w thumb safety!! Grand work!!!
I bought this holster for my off duty carry. It is a great holster and it is made very well. I highly recommend this holster.
Good Holster, retention is great, and it is comfortable, and very concealable with a lose pullover. One of the few places that I found and OWB holster for my new Sig P365. Oh yes, quick shipping, was a pleasant surprise. Will not hesitate to buy from Vedder holster in the future. Thanks.
I have bought many holsters over the years, cheap as well as expensive for a variety of handguns. This is the best that I've owned so far. I use it for my Springfield EMP 1911and I can hardly tell that I'm carrying. I first heard of Vedder on one of the outdoor channel tactical programs. They spoke of the "click" as your handgun bottoms out. This locks your handgun in, and it works. There are no thumb breaks or levers to unlock the gun,just pull it out.
good for range only.gun rides to high over belt,top sags and leans away from body,prints bad even under sweatshirt ***VH COMMENT*** Thank you for taking the time to review your holster. We are sorry to hear that the LightDraw is not working out well for you. We can recommend trying the pancake wings to help the holster sit up closer with the body.

We look forward to assisting you further and hope you have a great day!
One of the best holsters of it's type I've ever seen. As a matter of fact I used it shooting my yearly qualification course yesterday and it performed flawlessly. Well made, fits my Glock 19 perfectly. I'll be buying additional holsters from Vedder for my other guns.
I'm really happy with this holster! Made and shipped quickly, perfect fit for my Glock43. I had mine shipped with the pancake loops and this holster fits very tightly to my body with no printing wearing a Nike Dri Fit Tee shirt (XL). If it helps others, I'm 6' tall and about 220lbs. If your are having trouble deciding, just go ahead and order it. This may end up being my favorite holster I have!
So far all I can say is this holster is solid and everything one would like in an OWB. I bought it for my FNX9. I think I am going to need a different belt to make sure the holster sucks in tighter to my body. A little bulky for a concealment holster. For sure this will get more use during the winter months. I am a big boy so IWB with this gun is not an option. Guess this will give me an excuse to go out and get a new concealed handgun.
This holster is absolutely amazing, I’ve always been one to worry about quality and price! This holster meets all my expectations and then some, it’s light and extremely durable... I would definitely buy from Vedder again for future holster purchases .
Took a hard fall into the creek near my home with my FNS9C in a LightDraw™ OWB holster. Just wanted to say that your product saved the day. The firearm stayed in place and didn't end up laying on the stream bed under three feet of water. 100% recommend your product.
Wonderful holster and a great alternative for when my IWB just isn’t the holster I need to wear.
I just love this holster, got it for a S&W Shield, fits close to the body easily concealable even though it is a OWB holster. Sent back my Shape Shifter kit. Very well made, fast shipping. Now I need to get one for my Glock 19.
Fits the my Glock 30 like a glove. Fits more closely to the body than any other belt-slide and pancake style holster on the market. Outstanding, comfortable, and high quality product!
Very nice. I have both the OWB and IWB models. In both cases, the Kydex is nicely done, with rounded edges and good craftsmanship, and the gun fits in with a secure click. I bought both the standard and special belt loops. One set is supposed to hold the holster closer to the body, but I have no idea which is which. There seems to be no documentation on that. I could remove the ones that came on it, and install the others, but that's too much trouble right now. I don't know why they don't explain that somewhere. Otherwise, very nice, and fast shipping.
I recently received my Light Draw OWB for a Ruger SR9C. Gunmetal color is great and fit and finish of holster are great. The pistol fit is perfect and secured retention is easily adjusted. With the wide belt tabs (wide support) I get the best support. With a 17 round clip in pistol there is a little too much weight to hold the gun tight and vertical and the pistol cants out a bit and "prints" thru a light jacket or untucked shirt. The 10 round magazine in the gun is a better option and fits tight to my body. I have 2 each Vedder IWB holsters and 2 each Vedder OWB holsters for 4 different firearms. Great Quality and fit plus 4 different colors so easy holster identification. Why buy any other brand?
Great holster, Lightweight and comfortable for even large Pistols
I just received my holster and can say it is just what I've been looking for. I have a Glock 42 and have been trying to find a holster that wears flat to the body and doesn't print. Its all about the "pancake wings". Other holsters I have tried with regular belt clips leave room far too much play and the gun tends to pull away from the body and print too much. The pancake wings are the answer! They hold the gun tight against my hip and don't cause discomfort. I will most likely be ordering another for my Sig P320... Over all I'm very satisfied...
Great OWB Holster with a lot of options. Well Made. Adjustability of reterntion is good. For 3 o'clock, the zero cant is great. I would need to get a forward cant to carry comfortably at 4-5 o'clock. It looks like you can flip one of the clips and it will drop the front down slightly. If so, that may allow for "adjustable cant" but I need to try it. I got both the standard clips and the paddles. I found the paddles work great for me at 4-5 o'clock, but were horrible at 3 o'clock, so I changed to standard clips at that position and it was almost perfect. Of course fitment is dependent on your body size and shape, but that's what worked for me.
Just like a lot of people I've bought many holsters for my pistols. I for one don't care for IWB so I prefer OWB. I recently purchased my holster from Vedder and I'm quite pleased with it. The craftsmanship is excellent, the fit for my pistol is good as well. I like the retention screw so I can set it as I want. The holster fits "me" and is comfortable. My wife and went on an all day shopping trip for her just a few days ago and I hardly noticed that I was wearing a fire arm. This holster fits to your body so that you can wear it with even just a T shirt as I usually do. Should I need another holster for another pistol it'll be a Vedder. I should also note that I had looked at several other holsters and actually took a chance on Vedder. I'm glad I did. I am very well pleased with my purchase.
Others make similar holster, but the quality, fit and finish of Vedder is noticeable. The adjustable retention is a feature I've not seen on other OWB holsters. I had been searching for some time for a OWB holster for my Shield 45 and Vedder was the only one I found at the time and I'm glad I did. This is all day comfortable and with the addition of the pancake belt loops it is flat against your side. I have OWB holsters for my Shield 9 and M&P 2.0 full size that also have the pancake belt loops and this allows me to carry OWB with just a
