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!
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.
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 T-shirt as a cover garment in warm weather. Get one and you will not regret it. Support small businesses also as Vedder is a small family owned business.
Fits my S&W M&P 2.0 like a glove. Very comfortable OWB holster. Received the holster in 4 days. Will be doing more business with Vedder. Great company and highly recommend.
The fit and finish on this holster is second to none, it arrived in a timely manner in very nice packaging and even some stickers to boot, which is something small and over looked but still nice to have. If ur looking for a quality holster with many options for appearances look no further. Big thanks to the Vedder holsters crew
Very satisfied with purchase. Quick delivery, light as a feather,rides close for great concealment retinsion is fantastic. Bought it for my Walter pps
I was stuck on leather holsters until I got a Vedder, I now have 3 and plan to get a couple more
This is a great OWB holster. I use the pancake clips and it keeps my PPQ extremely close to my body. The fit and finish is excellent and the tension screw works well. Very happy with my purchase and will likely order a Light Tuck for my PPS.
Got one for my Sig P320 Full Size and it fits great.
With the pancake clips, holster rides high and tight. Excellent construction and concealability. My 2nd Vedder holster and will continue to purchase.
It fits perfect I would feel guilty buying a holster from someone else
Giving it five stars for now just because it seems to do everything I expected from a quality manufacturer like Vedder. I ordered it for my HK USP 45 and it fits like a glove with a satisfying click of retention at the end. I've only worn it around the house a couple hours at a time and it seems comfortable enough. Figuring out how to wear it on my gun belt with a Cobra buckle was confusing and a pain in the ass at first, but I think I worked out a solution. I got it with the 10 degree forward cant and I like it. I got it with the standard and pancake loops. It shipped with the pancake loops and they work fine, but haven't tried the standard loops yet. I'm a smaller guy and haven't played with the height yet, but the draw is smooth and comfortable at the height I received it. Again, this is early and it may change with more time, but so far, so good.
Been around the block with holsters and I keep coming back to Vedder. The Light Draw OWB is my 2nd Vedder holster and its great. I just ordered my 3rd Vedder. No doubt the fit, finish and comfort will be the same. Thanks Vedder.
Most comfortable holster I have worn. It is for a double stack 45 Cal. Glock. The gun with a full mag was always so heavy on the belt. This holster pulls it tight against the body for concealment. This pull to the body makes the gun not pull on the belt as other holsters will do.
My wife is very happy with her holster. It is very comfortable to wear all day. I am very impressed with the retention the screw never backs out it stays where it is set. This holster really hugs the body making it very comfortable for everyday carry. There are more expensive holsters and there are cheaper holsters but there is not a better holsters than Vedder.
Very pleased with this OWB holster. Excellent quality. Retention is great! (I found no need to make any retention adjustments. It's perfect for my S&W 45 as is. Of course, Vedder wisely includes a retention screw on this holster, just in case you ever do want to adjust the retention.) Vedder has a long standing reputation for producing high quality holsters at a fair price. This was my first purchase and they did not disappoint. Excellent job Vedder. I will be a repeat customer. (A Vedder gun belt is next on my "to buy" list!)
Perfect fit and retention. I got it with the wings and they hold the holster close to body. Don't even know it's there, light and comfortable.
Its next to impossible to find a kydex holster for an M&P22Compact but these folks make one and its great! I couldnt be more pleased with the fit and finish of the product. I do wish "paddle" was an option but thats ok. Im happy to have a great fitting holster for a 22.
A perfect fit. Love it...
I have a few IWBs from Vedder that are great, this is my first OWB. Just like the others, it is a great holster, well made, no edges, perfect retention, perfect fit. I will be doing future business with Vedder.
This is my first non-leather holster, I plan to replace all my leather holsters with this product
I wanted a nice range holster spent the extra money and received a beautiful holster problem was my Glock 17 wouldn’t fit was very disappointed I don’t know how they could have shipped something like that again very disappointed **VH COMMENT** I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your new holster. Each of our holsters are made to fit the precise gun model listed so you should certainly not be experiencing the issue you are describing. We will be more than happy to send you a replacement holster with a pre-paid return label to determine what went wrong with your original holster and ensure that it does not happen in the future. We look forward to getting this resolved to your satisfaction as quickly as possible and thank you for your business.
I ordered the owb holster for the M&P2.0 compact and the retention is spot on. The pancake loops keep the holster snug to the body and concealed rather well. I am very happy with this purchase. And the fact that I ordered and received the holster within 1 week is outstanding! Will be ordering more holsters in the near future.
As a retired law enforcement officer I can appreciate a good piece of equipment. The Vedder Lightdraw fit my CZ perfectly. It has adjustable tension and rides, for me at a comfortable height. Would like to see a modification to allow an open ended option. Would let water drain in wet conditions and dirt and such not to accumulate in the bottom of the holster. Having said that its a great product.
Gun fits so perfect,quality is a 10, it almost feels like I’m not wearing a holster.
Awesome product! Super comfortable, love the way it sits & feels. Retention is perfect. Can't wait to get another one. Quick delivery too. Definitely recommend.
Great holster with the premium clips. Comfortable and hold close to the body.
Again another stellar job. This is my first OWB Light Draw holster from you guys. Fit and finish is perfect as always. Had a special request for this one and you delivered it perfectly above expectations. Thank You so much!!
Outstanding holster holster love the way it carries my 1911 Dan Wesson Officers model.
I received my new LightDraw holster two days ago. I looked over my holster, studying the hardware, both sets of belt clips, and the overall finish. Everything checked out nicely. I grabbed my full-size 45, a Glock 41, and the fit was right on. Next came the wear test. I am a bit thicker in the waste than most of those YouTube Millennials so I was a bit concerned on how the LightDraw would ride. I appreciate the width of this holster because I carry on my right side, not at the two or four o clock positions and this holster fit perfectly, even overlapping a belt loop. Once I tightened my belt and added the extra magazines I was even more pleased because the LightDraw did not dig into my hip like many other mass- produced kydex holsters do. I pulled my shirt down over my gun and belt and didn't notice much imprinting. Again, very pleased with the holster and it's design. So far I've worn it all day going about daily life and have enjoyed the LightDraw quite a bit. Vedder appealed to me for several reasons, one it's family owned, they are here in the United States, and they make rigs for full-sized guns (with options). So why four stars instead of five? Here is the only thing I dislike; the "O" rings. I'm sure they serve a purpose whether it be better fitment, quieter holster, whatever. They are small and my hands are large. I dropped one when changing to the smaller belt loops, fortunately I found it and life was good once again. Will this one hiccup keep me from purchasing other Vedders products? The answer is NO. I appreciate my new holster, I like having options, it fits and wears great, and someone right here in the USA made it. Now if I could only get a matching Vedders made double mag pouche for those double stacked 45 magazines.Great job guys. Thank you for making a product that fits comfortably; even for us husky dudes. Keep up the good work!
Good price, excellent selection, and only 3 days out!!! That is pretty much unheard of these days. Last time I bought a holster from a different company and it was 2 months. Great product!
I could not be happier with my light draw holster. It is comfortable to wear all day and the craftsmanship is top-notch. Someone really took their time to get it right. There are more expensive holsters out there and there are cheaper holsters out there but there is not a better holster than Vedder
I purchased an OWB holster for my shield. Great quality, fit and appearance. I had a question about my holster and their tech support employee was very nice and answered all of my questions. I am very happy with this holster.
Everyone in my office carries every day and i recommended this holster to all of them. And would gladly recommend it to anyone its comfortable and doesn't pinch or rub anywhere in any situation.
Great detailing when ordering with specifics, excellent selection of options for cant, designs and colors. Amazing fit with easy draw, tailored to my CZ - only place to make my holster. Love it, functionality and the most beautiful design/colors. Production and shipping time were better than projected.
Great looking holster ! Perfect fit for my Springfield RO. Very comfortable and conceals well. My first Vedder holster but not my last. Thanks
i just received my lightdraw owb holster and it is everything i was expecting, great product and great company.
Great holster, very comfortable and fits my CZ P01 urban grey like a glove. I'll be ordering an IWB soon.
Just the best, trust me! Just received another for my Sig. Can't go wrong!
Form, fit and finish. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Fit and finish are great. My Glock 19 fits tight to my body. definitely will get one for my 1911.
I've tried many holsters and I thought I'd found a manufacturer to last me until their QA started slipping, resulting in scratched finishing and excessively tight fit. I searched around and found the overwhelmingly positive reviews of Vedder Holsters on YouTube and thought to give them a try. Am I glad! The fit is excellent, I REALLY appreciate the sweat shield and the slightly loose fit but perfect retention(!) of the pistol. Quality shines from every surface, every screw. They took some time making this holster work. I was so impressed, I'm trying to get my local gun store to start carrying them in their store! Well done.
After reading about and buying different styles of holsters, I gave Vedder a try. I now own 6 and it is by far the best holster you can get at any price. Price, service, fit, finish and function are all top notch. Get one and you too will be a fan!
Be aware that if you have a P226 SAO with Ambi safety the standard sweat shield will interfere with the safety. I easily modified mine by trimming the sweat shied for a perfect fit. Perhaps I overlooked something when ordering. I am very impressed with the holsters fit and the amazingly fast service. I will order more of these holsters for other pistols. Excellent product and the Camo looks great.
This is my second holster from Vedder and I just ordered my 3rd. After piling holsters in a drawer for years that just didn't work out I finally found a holster maker that gets it. Fits my G30SF perfectly and rides securely. Spend a few extra bucks and get the better clips.
This holster is exactly what i wanted. It's light and holds my gun close to my body. The retention is good and i didn't need to make any adjustment.And finally it looks awesome.
Can't be happier with this Holster, bought it for a G20 gen 4, fit is perfect, with the more expensive belt loops it holds the gun tight against the body, I could actually conceal carry this big gun with this holster! However gun is for woods carry. Pair this up with the cobra belt and you're in carry heaven. Just One thing VEDDER! Still waiting on holsters for the M&P M2.0 compact 40! the 9mm version doesn't fit......Waiting to hand you more of my hard earned MONEY!!
This is the best kydex holster I've found so far. It holds my weapon extremely close and is very comfortable. I have 2 so far, one for a 1911 and one for a Sig P229. I've had trouble finding a holster for the 229 that didn't feel top heavy. My weapon always felt like it was wobbling in the holster, but the Vedder holds it steady, with no top heavy wobble.
Received my new holster last week and have been using it everyday right out of the bag. Can't be any happier about the fit and feel on the belt, love the straight drop design and the signature "click" when the gun is fully seated in place. Well worth the little extra money over other kydex equipment.
I've run a lot of other holsters and this one blew me away, a perfect fit for my CZ75B Omega with extended threaded barrel and suppressor height sights. The retention is excellent and adjustable. The clips are strong and comfortable, and the fit and finish are beyond belief, there are no rough edges or mold marks and the colors and partners are holding strong. One final thought and that is that Vedder Holsters has quick shipping and excellent customer service. They answered my questions promptly prior to purchase and gave me a military discount. I can't say enough good things about this company.
The holster quality is excellent, and there is a lot of attention to detail. I really like the fact that you can adjust the retention on these holsters. Overall great product, and I would buy again for sure! Thanks, Matt
WOW! My "Lightdraw OWB" holster is terrific! The good things...price, availability and selection. I have purchased other brands of kydex holsters from well known makers and hacks on Ebay. The Vedder product is by far one of...if not the best! Being left-handed I am aware of the limited choices..and that at times that has caused me to purchase firearms to fit the holsters available. ie 1911platform Glock and J-K&L frame Smiths. Vedder throws the blanket on just about everything.. I will be carrying my GL34 more frequently and eventually my Browning HP will be riding in a Vedder kydex holster along with many others. THANK YOU for making such an excellent product!
The Light Draw OBT holster looks and feels great. It is well made and constructed of high quality materials. The holster holds the gun securely even though there is no thumb break. If I had to say anything negative it would be that I would like if the holster sat higher on my belt. This would make the weapon easier to hide when not wearing a shirt that sat below the belt. Possibly if the extra material below the barrel was trimmed off. This may accomplish what I would like. Over all it is a quality product and I would recommend it.
This holster works well for concealed carry. I wanted to give OWB carry a try because I have found IWB to be somewhat uncomfortable. I carry at my 8 o’clock (left-handed), and this holster allows me to conceal my Glock 26 just fine with only a t-shirt. If you get this holster, I recommend using the pancake clips, as they hold the holster tighter to your body than the normal clips do. If you’re looking for an OWB holster that is extremely comfortable and still conceals a pistol well in normal, light clothing, this holster is for you.
Great holster. The retention is superb, I have mine as light as it’ll go and it’s still snug but not difficult to draw or re-holster. Keeps the gun snug to my side as well. There’s nothing more I could ask for.
What drew me to try this finely made holster is the ability to chose a finish for the outer layer and the Barrel opening was completely closed on this holster which is the only one I have tried with this feature. The workmanship and quality is a top tier holster with only one exception and the reason why I gave it a 4 star rating; the thickness is somewhere inbetween a .060 & .080. I require at least a .080 because I subject my holsters to everyday extreme conditions that requires a thick holster. Don't get me wrong, I do plan to keep it but, the only thing that would have made it the best I own is if they would have made it a true .080 thickness. I ordered the black Carbon Fiber exterior and it looks quit rugged. So, in conclusion If you don't subject your holster to extreme conditions and wear your service weapon everyday and everywhere, you won't need a heavy duty holster and this will be the best for you. *** VH COMMENT*** Thank you for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We order our Kydex from the manufacturer in .080, due to the way the Kydex is made, it can range anywhere between .075 and .085. We do offer a 30 day return/exchange policy on all of our holsters and we are more than happy to get you set up with a return if you are not 100% satisfied with your holster. We greatly appreciate your business and taking the time to review review your holster. Have a great day.
The Lightdraw OWB holster is a comfortable very functional holster. The holster huggs the contour of your hip at the 3 o’clock position quite well with the optional extra cost belt loops (only $5.00 additional). This holster is comfortable enough for all day EDC wear. My pistol draws from the holster fast and the holster does Not mar it’s finish. This holster is perfectly fitted to both my Steyt S9-A1 and M9-A1 9mm pistols. What more can be said - excellent holster and even better customer service!
This holster is well worth the extra money. It is very comfortable and easily conceals glock 19 with T-shirt on. Retention is easily adjusted I will be a return costumer for my next holster. Thanks.
I was looking for an OWB holster that wouldn't "print" while carrying concealed. I had previously used a Serpa which is a fine holster BUT, it printed to much for me. I did spend the extra few dollars for the belt loop vs standard clip. The loops hold the holster closer to the body IMO. I had just purchased a glock 19 MOS, had a red dot mounted (my first), with an extended barrel, and I'm left handed! I couldn't find how to order the holster cut to fit the red dot from the website. I called the company and spoke to a very pleasant lady, who explained I needed to write this request in the comment field during the ordering process, which I did. I was concerned about the "slide shield" on the holster - hadn't have something like that before - was afraid I'd cut my thump on this kydex piece during a fast draw. I have to say that the "slide shield": didn't cut my thumb, doesn't cut into my side while riding in a car, and as an added bonus - keeps my t-shirt or sweater away from the holster (doesn't impede draw) during competitions. I'd like to say to people surfing the web, that I was VERY pleased with this company! It appears to be family owned, made in USA, and when you call the company, a pleasant person speaking and understanding english, actually does care about you and their products!! Today, that's pretty rare. Yes, I'd buy from this company again and would buy this product for a family member if needed. Have great day!
My Walter PPS M2 fits perfect in the holster. The retention is just right. I purchased the pancake clips and the holster fits tight against my body.
I own a box full of holsters I don't use, and I own two Vedder holsters that I DO use every day. If you're in the market, don't hesitate to buy a Vedder!
This is one fine quality product. I have tried several holster's over my life. I can tell you Vedder Kydex is the best fitting holster. Since I found Vedder holster's I own no other. I have purchased 6 holster's, mag carriers and their new gun belt. I can easily say I will never buy from another Vendor. Great customer service staff to answer any question you have. My friend's are well pleased with their purchases. Thank you Vedder
I was very surprised how quickly it arrived and very happy with this purchase. My pistol fits perfectly and I finally found a good holster with a cant and the super camo highlights the gun well,I'm happy and I ordered another from Vedder. Get this holster it's well worth the money.
I've owned 6-7 different holsters and my first Vedder blows them all out of the ballpark. Extremely well crafted holster. I use mine for concealed carry and with a jacket or sweater on -- you can't tell I have a thing! It rides perfectly and I absolutely love the solid lockup. It's a very audible "CLICK" when your gun is locked in. This is probably the only holster I feel like I could run entirely hands free with; without a hand on my gun to keep it in the setup. Highly adjustable, extremely safe, hefty/thick high quality Kydex and super quick shipping. What's not to love? P.S. -- GET THE PANCAKE CLIPS. It's 10000% worth it, even if you don't conceal carry. A gun is like a woman and feels so much better when securely pressed up against your body. Do it.
Holster is amazing fits like its part of the gun. Extremely comfortable lightning fast. The retention is perfection didn’t need adjustment.The people at vedders are craftsmen. Couldn’t be happier
This is my second holster I have bought from Vedder, I have found both holsters to be well made and fit both of my guns like a glove. The first one I bought was a IWB for my Berretta and the second was OWB for my CZ Po1 , both pistols were a perfect fit. Customer service is outstanding , you will not be disappointed with this product.
I have the IWB initally and bought this one after I was not happy with another design I purchased from different supplier. This one is well designed- excellent for range drawing drills.
I've owned my Beretta for five years and in that time I've been through countless OWB holsters. In the end they all ended up stored away, thrown out, or sold. I decided to give Vedder a try and I'm really glad I did. There OWB holster is well made and exactly what I'd been longing for these past few years. With the weather getting cooler I've had ample opportunity to wear it and I'm really pleased. It's sturdy, well constructed, made with quality parts, and I feel very confident in how it holds my Beretta. Vedder has earned my business and I will be coming back for my future holster needs.
Great holster! Fit and finish are perfect. I highly recommend Vedder Holsters!
I have been using my Lightdraw holster for just about a year now and I love it. As most of us know, marrying a holster with edc can be a pain and hassle to find "the right one". This is it for me as i have accepted there is no perfect holster. Vedder is top notch! Of course there are some compromises as far as what I personally would like to have in a holster, but everywhere you look, some companies do these things instead of those, or those things and don't think about these, and so on. I wish the holster rode down a bit more on the waist to help pull the heel of the pistol in a bit tighter, and I wish there was an option of felt lining inside the holster to protect the finish of the pistol against the kydex as that really wears it down over time. Then it would be the perfect holster if these things were added. I recommend it to everyone. I have also been using a light tuck holster for years and love it as well. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for your feedback! I will certainly pass your comments on to our product development team for possible future updates. Thank you for your business and taking the time to write your review.
Very pleased with holster. A little better fit than blade tech holsters I have previously been using. The raptor finish turned out reall nice on holster and iwb magazine. Look forward to using it on next local pistol match.
Yup, another Vedder holster! This time the LightDraw OWB. AS usual fit and finish was great. I ordered this with the pancake clips and it forms and fits tight to my side. With a good belt I carry a Glock 20 all day long,sitting,standing,kneeling with no issues.My EDC is full size and this holster is midwest fall/winter perfect under shirt tails or jacket. Thanks Guys! Got it in a few days not weeks!
I have bought 2 LightDraw OWB holsters from Vedder. When I notified them that I had lost a couple of screws Kaitlin quickly responded that she would be more than happy to replace them. I would have been happy with them telling me the thread pitch and length so that I could get some myself. The GREAT customer service, along with the extremely high quality of the holsters is why I will always come back to Vedder for any additional holsters that I will need. Thank You Kaitlin.
I currently have four Vedder Holsters. Three LightTuck IWB and one LightDraw OWB. They are perfect in every way. I just ordered my 5th, a LightDraw OWB for my GLOCK 19. Their customer service is outstanding. The best you'll find anywhere.
This is my second Light Draw OWB holster from Vedder. This holster has become my favorite OWB holster. The fit/finish is superb. The color options and turn-around time is fantastic. I highly recommend if you are in the market for a OWB holster, give this one a try.
I just received my Vedder Light Draw for my S&W SD9. I LOVE IT! The retention on this thing is second to none. The quality is outstanding and I love the fact that they send both style belt loops for it. This makes my third Vedder Holster. I have two Light Tuck holsters for my SD9 and my Beretta Nano. I will never buy any other brand! You guys are great!
Upon recieving the holster it was alittle larger then a few other owb kydex i have, i liked that the edges were smoothed out but there really wasnt an audible click from the retention im used to. Retention seems like it could be improved other then the set screw. **VH COMMENT** Thank you for your feedback. All of our holsters are made to fit the precise gun model listed so you should be getting an exact fit with your holstered gun. We would love the opportunity to speak with you in more detail about your holster. We look forward to talking to you and getting this resolved to your satisfaction.
Love this holster. Purchased for use as a competition rig in idpa and it exceeds all expectations. Would give Vedder 6 stars if I could. Pennie was quick to respond to questions and from placement of order to delivery of holster cross country was 6 days. Rediculous turn around time if you're shopping custom manufacturers. Keep doing what you're doing good people at Vedder.
This is actually my 3rd holster from Vedder. I have one for a M&P Body guard, and a Ruger SR9C as well. Fit and finish is very good and the holsters wear comfortably. The weapon re-holsters easily. The belt clip provides great stability, the holster stays put, better then most holsters that contently need to be readjusted. This holster is a great product.
This holster is simply outstanding! Your customer service is second to none! I received my Lightdraw two days agar and was able to wear it all day and take it to the the range today. It makes my edc Glock 17 vanish behind an untucked button up shirt, is extremely comfortable and the premium pancake clipshold the weapon tight to the body! Great buy and I highly recommend both this holster and Vedder as a company! Well done, and God bless.
Like most people who frequently carry I have a drawer full of holsters I'll never use twice. The PPS is light enough that I should ideally be able to carry OWB year round. But all the other OWB holsters I have purchased have either been too bulky for summer time concealment or lack sufficient retention to keep the pistol safely holstered while I am moving around. The LightDraw OWB is perfect. Good retention, rides high and close to my body, and allows me to easily conceal the PPS when wearing light summer garments. Vedder manufactures a fantastic holster! Their customer service is also excellent. They stayed in touch with me regarding my order status while they dealt with evacuating for hurricane Irma and then returning and re-starting their manufacturing process. Class act this company.
The holster is very high quality, really like the adjustment for tension. It is comfortable to wear. Worth the money.
Not even a hurricane can stop a Vedder Holster. I live in the Houston area and ordered the holster a few days after hurricane Harvey hit us and Vedder was able to manufacture and ship from Florida just before before hurricane Irma hit them. I ordered it for my Glock 43 and it has the same perfect fit and finish as my Vedder Light Tuck IWB holster. Thank you for a great product.
I had never heard of Vedder Holsters until I started looking to purchase a holster for my Canik TP9SA. Decided I would take a chance and order. I am glad I did. This is one of the nicest holsters I own. The fit and finish of the holster is superb. I highly recommend you try a Vedder holster.
I got a couple of these for pistols I wanted to take to training classes. The fit and finish is awesome. The positive retention right out of the bad is perfect. They fit my CZ P-01 and my Glock 19 like a second skin. Great holster.
Simply superb craftsmanship and the best holster I own. As soon as you have it in your hands you can see the difference in quality compared to other brands of holsters. You can tell that they take their time and have pride in their product. Hands down the best deal out there for a high quality kydex holster!
I ordered the Lightdraw OWB holster for my S&W Shield 45. Vedder makes an outstanding holster which is comfortable, very well made and holds the pistol very securely. It also shipped out and arrived very quickly. I would definitely order another holster from Vedder.
Outstanding craftsmanship. Handgun fits perfectly with the right amount of retention. My first Vedder holster. Liked it so well, immediately ordered an IWB holster.
I purchased this holster for my S&W M&P 22C which I have found is hard to find a left handed holster for. I saw a review on U-tube for this holster so I ordered one. It is as described; well made, good looking and fits my 22 perfectly. I love the way the gun snaps in place. Also they shipped it to me about a week after I ordered it which is pretty fast compared to other places I've ordered from. I highly recommend Vedder Holsters.
I recently purchased this product and used it in this tactical shooting course I'm taking. The holster holds my firearm tight during numerous movement activities. From running to prone position the firearm stayed in the holster perfectly. This is my new favorite holster I wish they would make dual or triple mag holsters as well. Thank you for making a great product.
Ordered the lightdraw for my Glock 42 was very impressed with quality and fast shipping I ordered 2 more for my other weapons very comfortable holster would highly recommend them
This holster was a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. The flat dark earth carbon fiber Kyle's was exactly what I was looking for. The holster edges were finely finished and smooth as could be. The retention on my Glock was perfect after adjusting the retention screw slightly. The pancake belt loops hold the holster tightly to the body. I'll be getting more holsters from this company for my other pistols
I went all out and ordered the belt and lightdraw for my G43. The whole process of ordering and shipment to arrive to HI; it was very quick! Upon taking shipment, I was extremely impressed with overall quality of the product. Belt is as described, it is awesome! I west it off duty, along with the new lightdraw. Holster is awesome, retention is great and carry position and I am pleased with everything! Now I am looking to order another holster for my iwb carry. Just gotta get rid of my existing Jude's holsters and replace em all with Vedder! Thank you for making amazing products!
This is my third Vedder holster but first OWB and just like the others, the fit and finish is excellent. Buy Vedder, you'll be glad you did.
I originally bought a OWB holster from Bravo Concealment for my 1911, but quickly returned it for a Vedder. Bravo Concealment is a very nice holster too, but Vedder Holsters seem to be a step above. I really like the fit, finish and adjustable retention screw. This isn't my first Vedder holster, nor will it be my last.
These will be the only holsters I will buy from now on, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is absolutely flawless!
Very well made and great customer service.
After searching far and wide, I found this website. Most manufacturers have dropped the Sig P226 line. I wanted something that would fit snug, wasn't bulky, didn't have high side guards, and was pleasing to the eye. They made it promptly, sent me my tracking number and it was delivered on time. I love the holster. The pancake loops are awesome and fit great. For those that wanted a blade tech (sorry for saying their name) this is a great holster for Sigs. Great product! Thanks for making high quality holsters.
The Vedder LightDraw OWB holds very tight to the body, making OWB concealed carry of larger guns much easier. Worn under a t-shirtm, etc this disappears. (Just make sure you tighten your belt)
So far, I have two of these holsters and they are GREAT. I have one for a HK P30sk and one for a 1911A1. Will be getting one for my HK45 and another for a full-sized P30. As far as I can tell, you can't go wrong with them.
I ordered this holster for my XDS .45 with a crimson trace laserguard because choices were extremely slim in that configuration. I received the holster & it was an excellent fit, the material was solid. I wore it around the house for a few days just to make sure I liked it. All I did to it was blue Loctite the 5 screws, hate losing screws. Then I sprayed the inside of the holster with liquid wrench dry lube found in the RV section of a big box store. I'm taking this holster to my next HR 218 Qual, 6 people want to see it.
I stumbled across Veddor Holster while on Facebook one day, and since I was in the market for an OWB holster that I could still conceal while I was at work I decided to give them a look. Am I glad I did. The Lightdraw with optional pancake clips seemed to be what I was looking for to carry my XDs .45 in.. The order was at my door in lass than a week and the next day I started wearing it. Being as I work a job that takes me in and out of the Vegas heat, comfort along with retention were top priorities. The holster fits close to the body and is very comfortable, even in 115+ temps. and the retention is excellnt once you get it adjusted to what you like and need. I'll soon be trying a different style for my PPQ I like it that much.
Purchased this holster for a PPQ M2 5 inch and couldn't be happier with the quality and fit and finish of this holster. Limited choices out there for this model firearm no reason to look any further you won't be disappointed.
Fits like a glove. No problems whatsoever with it. If I'm this happy with it in a month or so I'll be ordering an IWB for my PPQ M2 .
Well constructed. Perfect for Sig 226 Legion SAO. I love it!
Vedder has very quick shipping from time of order. This Kydex holster is very well made, rides close to the hip and very comfortable carrying my Shield 45. Pistol locks in solid, and feels very secure in the holster. I would definitely order another holster from them.
Very Fast delivery ... about a week ! LightDraw ( OWB ) fit is perfect and nice & tight to the body. Very good CCW. LightTuck ( IWB ) is also perfect and tight to the body for CCW. Not too many holsters available for the XDs with the Crimson Trace LG 469 Green Laser ... Glad Vedder has them and they both work so well. Very happy customer ... will be back for more .... Thanks Vedder !
So this is my 2nd review of this holster. I bought a 2nd for my Glock 19. This is every bit as good as the one for my Glock 43.
I'll start by saying that customer service and efficient order times are key, and these folks have done an exemplary job in that regard. The quality is there, gun fit I've found slightly wobbly but secure, the gun won't fall out. The holster is good for concealed if you order the pancake clips with it. Also of note: I had a pancake clip break on me after some rigorous range drills, customer service replaced it without so much as a blink. I actually own two now, one for a shield and the other for a cz p07 and it's a solid holster for both.
These are one of best holsters on the market and these are some of the best people you will ever work with. Sincere, customer oriented, and fast. They are hard to beat. I have dealt with a lot of people in my 74 years, but these folks are among the best. Thank you girls and boys.
Excellent service!!!!!!!!!! I emailed with a question regarding a holster and got a response within 10 min. Said they would research and get back to me within 24 hrs. Had the answer the next day. Bought the holster and am very satisfied. Fit and finish is very good. I /have since purchased another product from them.
I bot this for my SR 1911 and it fits perfectly. Since I discovered Vedder Holsters I buy all my EDC and competition holsters with them. Excellent quality and service
I got the Light Draw OWB Holster for my huge Beretta 92, and its a great fit. I've never found a holster for a gun that large, that conceals so well. I got the standard belt loops and the pancake ones. The pancake ones were too wide spread for me, but the standard ones are perfect. The only hiccup I had with this holster was that when I got it, it fit too tightly on the gun and it was really hard to draw. (even with the retention screw almost falling out). But I wore it for a few days and it loosened up. I haven't had any problems since. Great holster, Great price. Thank you Vedder Holsters!
I was looking for a kydex holster for my glock 19. that concealed better then the one I was using. I checked out a lot of other brands and kept coming across people commenting about how much they liked their vedder holster. I'm so glad I found them. they had exactly what I was looking for with their lightdraw OWB holster. I ordered the bat wings as well so it is tighter against my side and easier to conceal. they sent along the standard loops as well. The holster functions great and my gun fits like a glove. With the adjustable tension screw I can snug it down to my liking. Great company and they are family owned and based here in the US. Can't ask for better then that. I will buy from them again and have recommended their holsters to some friends.
This holster is perfect for my XDS I couldn't find anyone else that made a owb holster like this for the xds, it's even better quality than a competitor that I have for my glock.
Another great holster from the folks at Vedder Holsters. I already have two Lighttuck holsters but this is the first OWB from them. It holds my Glock 43 very close to the body. I wore it under a t-shirt for a full day of dining and shopping with my wife and kids. I may have to get another for my Glock 19.
Great holster with adjustable retention. My wife loves hers for her Glock 42.
My first thought upon wearing it is COMFORT. Did I make that clear COMFORT! I like it in the 5 o'clock position and it hugs this overweight customer very well. Congratulations on such a great product.
This is the 2nd LightDraw holster that I have purchased from Vedder (S&W Shield 9mm & Sig. 938). The quality is outstanding as is the customer service. On both occasions the product shipped within a couple of days from date of order and I received the product within 3 days. I will definitely buy from Vedder again.
This is my second holster, the first being an IWB that I was extremely happy with. Based on the high quality I decided to buy an OWB which I am again extremely with. I don't think you will find a better kydex holster anywhere.
Excellent quality. Excellent fit. Very happy.
Excellent quality, excellent build. Adjustable and even concealable with a light shirt.
Great holster and great customer service. Hard to find holsters for my Glock 30s. I've been wearing this instead of an IWB holster because it fits so snug to my side and way more comfortable.
Had this holster custom made for my factory suppressor ready cz 75b omega with raised sights and threaded Barrel. Let me just say it fits like a glove and i am shocked how good this holster is quality wise. I could not be anymore stoked at how it turned out and to have a one of a kind holster for my gun. Didn't even have to adjust retention screw it was perfect as is. Absolutely would recommend this all day long and will not buy any other holster then vedder. Also add the pancake clips for 4.99 totally a must have! The shipping is fantastic as well got here less then a week with a 3 day turnaround from Florida to Michigan. Thanks vedder!!
Exceptional quality. Rally impressed with the craftsmanship. The holster shipped relatively quickly. Very happy.
Received my Lightdraw OWB in about 7 days from order. Like everything about it. The full sweat guard, fit, retention, quality, and look. It is difficult to get my thick gun belt through the tight area around the belt loops, but I can manage. Had to adjust the tension a little, and it seems good to go now. Time will tell, but I am very pleased with this holster. I had asked a question to Vedder before I ordered, and they responded quickly and answered it perfectly. So their customer support is as cool as their holsters. Will order from Vedder again in the future.
I own a Kahr ct45. After a lot of searching at gun shows and the internet I finally found exactly the holster I was looking for in the light draw. It holds the gun securely & well concealed. I am so impressed with the quality of both the fit and finish that I ordered a light tuck (iwb) as well.
I just bought the Lightdraw owb and I love it. I've worn it every day since I got it about 2 weeks ago. I usually wear untucked polo shirts or t-shirts so I decided to go with an owb holster and this one works perfect as it hugs my hip and sits even closer with the pancake clips for an extra cost of 4.99, They still send out the originals in case you want to switch between them. If you're looking for an owb holster you can still conceal i highly recommend the Lightdraw owb. I ride it at the highest level so nobody can see it and I can't feel it. Glock 23 btw, so comfortable! Now I need to buy you belt. Thanks Vedder Holsters!
Bought it for my S&W .45 Shield. Fits great, very well made. Doesn't hold the pistol as close to your body as some leather ones do, but it's Kydex I also own the IWB Lighttuck. Both holsters are excellent.Paid extra for the 1.75"belt loops so I could use the widest belt possible. Holster is worth the money
I have about 100 holsters and this is simply the best kydex holster I have. I honestly wish I had one for about 10 other guns.
Nice holster, however the pancake clips are useless for a person with a 31inch waist.Sorry I ordered them, wasted 5 bucks.
Purchased this one for my glock 19 with impressive fast shipping. This rig conceals well and fits close to the body. You can't tell I'm packing G19. The fit and finish on IWB/OWB BY Vedder are superb and I've tried a few others. The clips are much easier to thread your belt than any I've tried. Highly recommend wish I knew about Vedder a long time ago. Got get one you'll love it. I do wish they could come up with some kinda clip for OWB rather than messing with the belt every time you go in somewhere a gun is not allowed. Just a pet peeve of mine. Thank you Vedder
Ordered this for my suppressor ready springfield xd .mod2. Fantastic and fits the gun great. The options for the threaded barrel and tall sights made it a great buy and the best holster I have found anywhere for my gun.
I purchased a Veddar light draw with the pancake clips about two months ago. I have tried two other brands of OWB holsters, but returned them. When I first purchased my Light Draw, I put it to the test. I work on cars and some construction. I am comfortably able to carry my 9mm shield in my light draw holster, and no matter what position I am working, the pistol stays securely in the holster. I did an extensive plumbing repair under the crawlspace of a house, and the pistol stayed in the holster even when low crawling under the house. The pistol is secure. I purchased the pancake clips with the holster, and the holster sits very close to my waist, and is very comfortable. I have the holster positioned in the 2:30 range, which might seem kind of odd, but here is why. 1. While working, the holster and pistol is not in my way, and I can lay on the ground, work under a car, climb a ladder, weld, carry stuff, do almost all my work while comfortably carrying my pistol. The holster is comfortable. 2. The pistol is concealed. Many times I wear a button down or polo shirt, and with the 7 round magazine in my shield, the pistol is truly concealed. 3. I feel secure. With my Light Draw, set up in the 2:30 range, the pistol sits under my forearm. When I am in the checkout line, my arm is over the pistol, providing weapon retention in case some nutball tries to snatch my pistol. I habitually hook my right thumb in my pocket, and put my thumb under the tail of my shirt. If I need to present my firearm, I lift my cover garment over my pistol with my thumb to obtain my draw grip. I feel secure with the retention, and the ability to lift my cover garment. The customer service is fantastic. While I was plumbing under the house, and crawling under the house and working in awkward positions, I lost the retention screw in the holster. The pistol was still secure, but I emailed Veddar for a replacement retention screw. Two people at Veddar responded, asking for mailing address. I received a replacement retention screw at no charge. Money is tight, and I don't have the money to buy and try a bunch of holsters. This holster works fantastic. I have not regretted my purchase.
I own a lot of top end holsters,and none of them beat the Vedder. Perfect fit, perfect retention, high-end quality, and quickly shipped out to you at a fair price who could ask for more.
Excellent quality and craftsmanship. Very light weight. My Sig P320 fits perfectly and holds securely. Fast shipping and delivered as promised exactly as ordered.
I cannot believe how fast you create products and ship holsters. This is my first time ordering and will not be the last. I will be ordering from you for quite some time :) Top notch quality for a fair price with fast shipping? Sounds good to me!
Ordered a LightDraw OWB for my Shield 9mm w/ the Crimson Trace Green Laser. Order shipped out within 3 days and arrived a couple of days later. The gun fit perfectly into the holster and the quality is outstanding. Will definitely buy again.
Ordered this product(• LightDraw™ OWB ) for my Kel Tec 9mm. Perfect fit. The best OWB I have ever purchased.
I love this holster. It keeps my weapon close against me so that if you didn't already know I was carrying, you'd never see it. It's very comfortable. One small problem...women's belts are 1.25 inches wide and the pancake loops are 1.5. That causes a fair slip when I draw. Looking for a solution to this ***VH COMMENT*** Tracy, thanks for the great review. We currently offer our belt clips in 1.5" and 1.75" but we will work on getting some other size options in the future. Thanks for your feedback it is very helpful!
I received my holster from Vedder about a week ago for my Glock 19. The Retention is Fantastic, its very light and my Glock 19 draws super smooth. I could not be more pleased with the workmanship and will shop Vedder Holsters again.
I received my black Light Draw OWB for my Glock 26 a week ago and it is a very comfortable holster indeed. The construction and finish is really nice and you can tell it is put together very well. The weight is almost non existent and the retention is second to none. This is my second holster from Vedder (I also have the Light Tuck IWB) and I am pretty sure I will keep buying from them as time goes on. Cant say enough about the customer service also. I have had a few written conversations with Kaitlin and she has always been responsive, helpful and professional. Made in the USA! Well done Vedder! Well done!
Two thumbs up. Owb for my CZ-75. Great fit. Pistol clicks in and draw is smooth. Great customer service. Purchased a new pistol and had a pistol course planned for a week later. Vedder made the holster and had it to me in 4 days.
The Holster itself is great and is one of the few that are made that can accept a FNX .45 Tactical Pistol. However, the downside is the holster itself rides too high. If you are accustom to using a holster that rides lower (like me) this is not for you. ***VH COMMENT*** We apologize that the holster is not going to work out for you, we do offer a 30 day return/exchange policy and we are more than happy to assist with this. Please let us know if you have any questions at all as we are to assist in any way we can.
What can I say another great holster from Vedder. got it for a Glock 43 holds the gun nicely very comfortable to ware all day. very well made. like all Vedder holsters.
I own a few Vedder Holster, both inside and outside the waistband styles for different style pistols. They are great products at a reasonable price. I am very happy with the quality and comfort. I will continue to purchase Vedder Holsters in the future.
My first kydex holster and am extremely pleased. It is everything Vedder Holsters said it would be. I highly recommend the OWB LIGHTDRAW Holster.
I ordered this holster in hot pink for my new Walther PPQ M2. I ordered on the evening of 3/15 and received 3/22! No 4 wk wait time, and great quality? Imagine that! After many YouTube and forum reviews, this is just what I expected. It sits so close to the body that you may almost forget you're carrying! I couldn't be more pleased! Oh! Get the pancake wings!
I bought this for my Glock 21, not realizing that it fit so close to my side that I could actually carry the weapon concealed, by just wearing a longer length jacket. The quality is superb, and I can wear it for hours and almost forget it's there. I'am waiting for my fourth Vedder holster to arrive, and most likely will order others in the future. I recommended Vedder to one of the officers in my department. He liked it so well he order a second for his Glock 19. Excellent quality, attention to detail, and friendly courteous service, make this a top notch company to do business with.
Have thoroughly enjoyed this holster. Works great, super retention, very comfortable to wear. Has a very well-made feel to it, not flimsy at all. Will definitely buy other Vedder holsters for my other pistols!
LightDraw OWB holster works great with my Sig Sauer p320, It carries tight to my body and fits my P320 like a glove. Plus, you know your firearm is secure because of that audible click when you holster it. Also it's easy to conceal for a OWB holster. This is my second Vedders Holster and I highly reccomend them! You won' t be sorry!
good quality. works as advertised.
I Ordered The LightDraw OWB Holster For My Glock 21. Being A Large Pistol I Was Concerned With How The Holster Would Support The Weight. The Answer...Perfectly. With The Butterfly Belt Loops The Holster Fits Comfortably And Snugly Against My Waist. Great Product Vedder.
I ordered the light draw owb, it fits comfortably and my pistol fits perfectly. It's the perfect fit!
First, this is not my first Kydex holster--not by a long shot. I too have the boxes of holsters that are not quite right. I have waited many months for big named "bird" holsters and they have not a thing on Vedder. I found Vedder by seeking a holster for a Walther Q5. Few could do it. Vedder could in any goofy colors I pick AND got it to me in a week. Fit, finish, function surpassed any Kydex I have ever purchased. The retention required no adjustment was absolutely perfect. The Premium Pancake Clips upgrade pulled it in tighter than could be believed and conceals under a mid weight t-shirt 100%. This is a EDC holster and will never see the box in the closet!
This is the best OWB holster I have ever owned, I like how it carries nice and tight to the body,it is by fare the best one on the market today. The quality is second to none I will be recommending your product to all of my CCW friends.
Great quality holster. Fits my PPQ M2 perfectly with that satisfying click so i know its secure. Went with the optional premium belt clips that hug a little tighter to my waist for a better fit.
Fit and finish is excellent. The most comfortable holster I own
I live in california. Ordered the Lighttuck on Monday and received on Friday. Never had such phenomenal service. Took out holster, inserter my PCR, turned upside down, fell out. Tightened retention screw 1.5 turns. Turned upside down again and perfect. Could not be happier.
This is my second one ,just a different color. Right out of the bag this fits my Glock 23 perfect. They can make one for virtually any Firearm, most any color combinations. The Female that I have de.the with more than one time is very helpful, I just can't think of anything I would ask them to improve upon.
I've just started carrying, and after reading and researching I was not expecting to find the right holster on the first try. However, the Vedder website made it very easy and intuitive to order the holster with the needed options. The holster itself is very comfortable; I barely notice that I have it on. I was concerned about sitting down resulting in my fire arm digging into my side, but I don't have that problem at all. The holster clings to my hip tightly, with little printing. The quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. I am completely satisfied with every aspect of this holster and have already recommended Vedder holsters to my friends. I will definitely order from Vedder holsters again.
Service was as promised and the holster fits and functions perfectly. I've already ordered another for IWB to give myself another carry option. I can recommend these holsters without any doubt as to their quality/function.
The Vedder holster for my XD MOD 2 service model fits like a glove, every detail on this holster is perfect and with the pancake belt clips option, it's worth it. Now time to order the IWB for my XDS.
Just recently got the Light Draw OWB in the mail. Couldn't be more satisfied. I did the research because I want to avoid that drawer full of holsters I hear others talk about. It is perfect for the range and it conceals my G19 very well. My Light Tuck is awesome as well with my G43. Great gear at a fair price with fast shipping. Vedder is THE BEST!
did a lot of research on YouTube and saw so many great reviews I had to give it a shot and I'm glad I did. Got this for my XD Mod2 Service Model, also had them make it with "0" Cant and it snaps in nice and spent a little extra for the pancake clips and I'm glad I did! Also comes with an amazing Vedder Bag. Thank you guys!
This is the first holster that I have purchased from Vedder and it is by far the best that I personally own and probably the best value out there respectively. I had to purchase a holster for a relatively new handgun that wasn't on their list but the previous version of it fits this particular model. I had to do one minor alteration to allow for the ambi manual safety that's on my pistol but that doesn't take anything away from Vedder since it wasn't the specific handgun I own that they used for the holsters mold. There is absolutely nothing I dislike about these holsters and it's a bonus they have to many color combinations.
Well made holster and fits my gun perfect and delivery time was outstanding
This is my 3rd holster from Vedder. What a great product, as with all others I've bought. Flat to the.body, fit n finish is beautiful. I opted for the upgraded loops and they work good. Buy with confidence.
I purchased the Light Draw OWB Holster for my Glock 23 Gen 4 with Crimson Trace Laser Grip and Tru-Glo TFO Night Sights. My gun fits perfect and looks bad ass with the Graveyard Night Pattern. I will definitely be buying more holsters from Vedder! Customer service is the best and Kaitlin answered all of my questions that I had before my purchase! Two Thumbs Up!!
This is the best fitting OWB holster that I have ever used. It is lightweight and hugs you hip. Great retention straight out of the box. I will definitely be getting more holsters from Vedder for my other pistols.
I ordered this holster for my S&W M&P 9mm Shield Laserguard. I LOVE everything about this holster. Its comfortable, looks great, feels great, etc. I have other holsters but none are as nice as this one. I like this holster so much I just ordered an IWB Kydex holster from Vedder.
This is my first Vedder Holster. I purchased this after returning the stock holster from the firearm manufacturer because I wanted better concealment. I purchased the Light Draw, Black Carbon Fiber, with the Pancake Clips option and I'm very happy with this. I walked around the house for days with my firearm and my wife couldn't tell that I was carrying. I had an issue with the retention screw: at the tension I preferred, the screw was wobbly. Called customer support, they sent me a free return shipping label. A week later I had my holster back and everything feels just great! Would recommend this product.
I work overseas and work in both high profile and low profile conditions. This holster works great on my battle belt and also conceals excellent with the pancake clips when I need to conceal my weapon. The retention screw is an excellent addition to the kydex holster and the pancake clips are a much have for anyone buying this product. I am constently getting in and out of vehicles and running around and my gear takes a beating, this product has held up great with not even a scratch. Vedder has my business as well as many of my fellow colleagues.
This is my third holster from Vedder. I have two light tucks and now a light draw. I chose the black carbon fiber look for all three. I like the adjustable tension and holster cant. All three holsters fit well, have good retention, and allow for lightning fast draws. They were all shipped within 3 business days. They all arrive with their own little bag for storage. This is a real touch of class. I can't recommend Vedder more highly. In addition, it's a family business making products in the USA. What more can I say!
I've tried many kydex and leather owb holsters, and the lightdraw is by far the best. Light, durable, and made from high quality materials. My full size M&P 9 rides very securely and comfortably in this holster. I'll definitely buy more of these holsters for other guns in the future. Thanks Vedders!
I was amazed at how easily I could conceal my Glock 19 under just an un-tucked button up shirt. I opted for the pancake belt loops, and was surprised to find the regular belt loops in the package as well. I ordered battleship grey front and black back, and I love the look! The offset ears on the standard belt loops allows for even more adjustability. I ended up using a standard loop on the front of the holster, and a pancake loop on the rear, and it works just great. Truly don't know that the gun is there. Very happy with my new holster, and have already recommended them to my brother!
I just finished writing my review on my last order, and let me say this: Vedder Holsters are addictive to me. I have IWB and OWB, and even though I love my two IWB LightTucks (one for each SIG) and the QuickDraw for my SIG320Subcompact, this Light Draw is the coolest holster. I've only worn it for ten minutes, and been practicing my draw, and this reminds me of the Askins Avenger I used to wear back in the 1970s-1980s, with one major difference: adjustable height, which I love. By the way, when I ordered the optional pancake loops, I was surprised that you guys had already installed them for me, and put the original loops in a plastic bag inside my holster. The detail of the customer service from Vedder is beyond my greatest expectations, and it's obvious that you care for repeat business as a primary goal. Thank you again for what you do...you're geniuses. Another thing: You shipped this holster on Friday, and I got it on Tuesday...First Class Mail!
This is a great OWB carry for my M&P shield 9mm. It sits close to the body and is covered very easily. I love the click you get when it is secured inside the holster. This is the second holster I bought from Vedder and the only holsters I'll be buying from here on out.
I am a repeat customer many times over. I have never been disappointed with this company or their great products. I will ONLY buy from Vedder for all my holster and magazine holder needs. Outstanding quality and durability and a plethora of unique style and color options to choose from makes this company a first, last, and always "go-to" for me. You can't go wrong with Vedder.
I'm so impressed with my new holster. I bought the LightDraw OWB for my Walther PPS M2 pistol. The fit is perfect and it is so lightweight and comfortable to wear, I hardly know it's there. The retention was perfect for me right out of the box, but it still has a retention screw to modify it to your own preference. I have another Kydex Hybrid holster that I paid virtually the same amount of money for and there is no comparison on functionality and comfort. The LightDraw wins hands down without question. Lastly, the product is very high quality and looks great, although no one will ever see it when you carry. I'd recommend Vedder Holsters to anyone in the market for a "carry all day, everyday" holster. Top it off with unbelievable value for the money and you can't go wrong!
If you just are really having trouble with a IWB concealment holster but are carrying every day you will really love this Light Draw holster. With the Walther PPS M2 it does not show like my other holsters, it is very secure, it tucks in very close to the body, when I set down it does not catch on the arm of the chair, it is so comfortable. I added the premium pancake clips and the mossy oak break-up infinity and not only the best feeling holster I have, it looks so good I want to open carry now ha ha the mossy oak break-up infinity is a true good looking color. 10% forward cant. It feels so natural every time I draw and re holster,I am wearing it at 3 and 4 o'clock. It is worth every penny I paid for it to get this kind of comfort and not having to worry or think about it the whole day... Thank you, Campjeep
Best ever. This is the best . No disappointment
The quality and worksmanship of the light draw is amazing. Every edge is smooth so the holster does not dig into my side or mar my firearms. I ordered the g23 holster and my g26 also fits the holster snug. I live in the pacific Nw so we get a lot of rain. I am able to conceal this holster and my firearm easily with a hoodie or light weight coat. Holster fits snug to my body with the pancake clips. Thanks vedder!
This is my second Vedder holster and it won't be my last After purchasing a Light tuck IWB for the summer months I decided to purchase their light draw for the cooler months when I wear a jacket or flannel shirt I cannot say enough about these two holsters The quality of workmanship and material can't be beat When I holster my 9mm Shield and hear that snap I know it's secure and I am ready for whatever the day brings In less you want a drawer full of holsters that you do not use purchase a "VEDDER " first.
Attention to detail is second to none. Best quality holster. The different patterns and colors are very well done.
Ordered this for a CZ97BD Vedder being one of the few companies making a holser for this model, it arrived in less than a week firearm fit perfect, retention works well and it's very comfortable to wear.
Absolutely love this holster! It's so well made. Fits perfectly and I'm never going to buy another brand of holster again. The difference from my lay holster is unreal. This keeps my G17 so close to my body even being an owb holster. Completely impressed! Will be buying again!
I bought a couple of holsters from someone else and sent both back. The fit was not right. I'm not sure how I learned of Vedder but once I did I watched several reveiws on YouTube. Everyone seemed to speak very highly of your product. After receiving mine I understand why. MY 9MM fits perfectly, no adjustment needed at all. These are very well made and I'm telling you I don't believe you will get a better fit. One other thing is they have a huge selection of colors,and designs you can choose from. I'm very happy with your purchase and I can absolutely recommend their products.
I went with the flat dark earth color and the optional pancake wings on my holster. The holster holds the weapon securely and rides high and close to the body. It is easy to conceal and quite comfortable. My only regret is I should have went with the Blood Red Carbon color.
Was looking to get a nice custom holster for my ppq m2 but didn't want to wait almost a month to get it, orders here got in less than a week the holster is exellent super nice draw and all edges are nice and smooth no sharp edges very nice product, you won't be disappointed! :)
A++++++++. Love it
I got the lightdraw owb with the pancake clips at a 10 degree cant for my Glock 43 and love it. The retention adjustment is great and the pancake clips keep it tight to my body. It also came with the standard clips to switch out. The holster is also small enough to conceal wearing a regular t- shirt. Will definitely get my holsters from Vedder from now on.
First off , I think I received this custom holster with in a week . I must say this thing hugs like a teddy bear . For an owb it conceals like an iwb . This thing is made to perfection . All the edges are smooth and rounded . There's no rattle or play . I ordered the Neptune kryptec on the outside . I must say it's the most badass print I've seen . Just make sure you invest in a belt like from S.O.E. Just want to say thank you for making Quality equipment . I just hope I never have to use it . God Bless you guys .
Vedder makes a fantastic OWB holster. Gun fits snug. Easy to draw. Great product
Mine looked great--quality of materials and construction. Problem was it had waaaaaaaaay too much play in it. The retention screw didn't address that. It had at least 1/8" or more slack up and down, and side to side. My pistol rattled in the holster. Tried increasing the tension screw and it still rattled almost as much but was so tight you couldn't remove the pistol. Took a few minutes with my heat gun to fix it. If I didn't own a heat gun, I would have sent the product back and asked for a replacement. Again, besides the fit, the holster was/is very well constructed. **VH COMMENT** I am so sorry to hear that you had an issue with the fit of your holster. Each of our holsters are handcrafted to fit the precise gun model listed. Sometimes fit issues can be from minor differences between gun models as even slight differences can cause an improper fit, but we are happy to work with you to get you a holster that meets your needs.

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