How To Choose the Best Sig Sauer P365 Holster

How To Choose the Best Sig Sauer P365 Holster

Whether you’re a longtime fan of Sig Sauer’s most popular handgun or you’ve recently acquired one, you’ll want to find a concealed carry holster that matches the quality and reputation of the famed P365.

A quality Sig Sauer P365 holster should be as lightweight, concealable, and customizable as the pistol itself. You’ll want to look for a holster made from high-quality materials with adjustable features like retention, ride height, and cant. Above all else, your P365 holster should be safe, comfortable, and thoughtfully designed.

Let’s go over some of the specific things you should look for in a holster for this popular handgun.

About the Sig Sauer P365

One of the most popular concealed carry handguns on the market, the award-winning Sig Sauer P365 has it all. Its micro-compact design and lightweight stainless steel frame make it a comfortable choice for everyday carry, while its high magazine capacity and quality day and night sights take its capabilities to the next level.

The striker-fired pistol is built with a 3.1” carbon steel barrel coated with a durable Nitron finish for added protection. It comes chambered in either 9mm Luger or .380 and comes standard with two 10-round flush magazines, though optional 12- or 15-round extended magazines are available for those who want a greater capacity.

The P365’s 5.8” long, 1.06” wide, and 4.3” tall stainless steel frame and polymer grip only weigh 17.8 oz. It has a standard curved trigger with a pull weight of around 6 lbs. The Sig P365 is now available either with or without a manual safety, depending on your preference.

Finally, the popular pistol comes with Sig’s XRAY3 day and night sights, a 3-dot tritium system designed to provide accurate target acquisition in both high- and low-light conditions.

There’s no doubt about it: the Sig Sauer P365 is top of the line when it comes to concealed carry guns. A pistol of this class should be paired with a high-quality holster to create the ultimate everyday carry system. So what kind of holster does the P365 need for optimal performance?

The P365

What To Look For in a Sig Sauer P365 Holster

The Sig P365 is one of America’s top-selling handguns. If you’re fortunate enough to carry one, there’s no doubt you’ll want to find a holster of equal quality and design. Here are some of the most important factors to look for in a high-end Sig P365 holster.

Holster Type

The first thing you’ll need to consider when looking for a P365 holster is the type you need based on the position you’ll carry in.

The most popular carry position for the P365 is inside the waistband. Because of its small, concealable size and design, this Sig model works well in any of the traditional carry positions, including appendix, strong side, and 4 o’clock.

For IWB carry, one of the best holsters is the Vedder Holsters LightTuck™. This holster is popular for the Sig P365 as it mimics the pistol’s thin, sleek frame, making it extremely easy to conceal. A quality hybrid holster, like our RapidTuck™ or ComfortTuck™, is also an excellent choice for IWB carry as their leather backing makes them incredibly comfortable.

Outside the waistband is another common choice if you prefer not to carry inside your pant waistband. A paddle holster is a compact, convenient option for OWB carry, while a larger holster, like our LightDraw™ or Quick Draw, has clips or loops that help evenly distribute the weight of your gun.

If you prefer not to carry around the waistline, a pocket holster is another excellent choice for the Sig P365. Because of the P365’s slight frame, it is one of the better choices for pocket carry. Our Pocket Locker holster is a slender, Kydex holster that easily slides into your pant pocket and stays securely in place.

Ultimately, the carry position you choose is up to you. Because the Sig Sauer P365 is such a versatile pistol, any carry position or holster you choose should be effective so long as you pair it with the right holster.

What to look for in a Sig P365 holster


There are three materials that holsters are primarily made of: leather, nylon, and Kydex.

Nylon holsters, while comfortable, generally aren’t recommended for concealed carry as they tend to be less durable than their counterparts and don’t hold their shape once your weapon is removed, making reholstering difficult and more dangerous.

Leather holsters are a great choice for CCW. They’re comfortable, durable, and easy to use. The only downsides to a leather holster are that they wear out quicker than a Kydex holster and can get pretty sticky when they come in contact with water, sweat, or humidity.

The best material for a Sig P365 concealed carry holster is Kydex. These holsters are unmatched in terms of durability, concealability, and adjustability. Despite being made from thermoplastic, they are incredibly comfortable and easy to conceal. Because they are heat molded to fit each individual gun model specifically, you can hear an audible “click” each time you holster your weapon, ensuring it will stay in place no matter what.

If you want the best of both worlds, hybrid holsters with a Kydex shell and leather backing might be your best option. These holsters are great as they offer the comforts of leather while still benefiting from the durability and design accuracy of Kydex.


An accurate and thoughtful design is perhaps the most crucial aspect of a quality Sig P365 holster. Not only does a good design make for a safer carry setup, but it also means you’ll have a more comfortable experience.

One of the most important design aspects of a Kydex holster is a precise fit to your weapon. Because Kydex holsters are molded to fit a specific gun model, your pistol should physically “click” into place and stay there until you go to draw.

Here at Vedder Holsters, our design team has created Kydex and Kydex/leather hybrid Sig P365 holsters with incomparable precision. Our fit is so accurate, there is next to zero wiggle room once your firearm clicks into place. Holsters made with less accuracy allow your weapon to bounce around, even if slightly, which will cause eventual wear on your gun.

But fit is not the only important design element. Whether you realize it or not, the small details in a holster’s design significantly affect how well it functions. To ensure a safe carry experience, it’s critical to invest in a holster with a proper trigger guard, durable clips, and adjustable features.

Another lesser-known but important aspect is how much “daylight” a holster’s trigger guard reveals. It’s essential to look for a holster that completely encloses your P365’s trigger. If your holster has an inadequate trigger guard, you risk your finger or a foreign object making its way inside your holster and to the trigger, which could cause a negligent discharge.

At Vedder Holsters, we’ve engineered our holsters to eliminate any trace of daylight through the trigger guard, so you never have to worry about trigger exposure.


Sig P365 Gun and Holster

Hands down one of the most important features of a Sig P365 holster, or any holster for that matter, is its adjustability. Design elements such as adjustable ride height and cant make it easier to conceal your weapon without printing and find a comfortable carry position while adjustable retention allows you to fine-tune your system even further.

Adjustable cant is important in a holster as it allows you to tilt it forward or backward to find your unique “sweet spot” for concealment, comfort, and ease of draw. While many Sig P365 holsters are only equipped with 15-degree cant one way, our holsters are designed with 30 degrees of adjustable forward and reverse cant, making them a top choice for CCW.

When it comes to how high or low your firearm sits on your waistband, adjustable ride height is essential. Whether you prefer deep concealment or a higher-sitting holster, this adjustment feature will serve you well.

Finally, one of the most critical adjustable features in a P365 holster is retention. Not only is this a safety factor, but everyone has different preferences on how easy or difficult it is to draw and holster a weapon. Adjustable retention allows you to customize to your preference.

The best holster for Sig P365 should come equipped with each of these adjustable features for the ultimate carry experience.


The Sig P365 is one of the most popular handguns ever made, and it is also one of the most customizable. From different safety options, aftermarket slides, and extended magazines to a variety of different optics, this model can be customized any way you want.

Having a customizable gun means you’ll need a customizable holster to accommodate it. Luckily, all Vedder holsters are made to order and can be tailored to your individual needs. Our holsters can be cut for the P365 with or without the thumb safety and can be designed to accommodate a variety of lights, lasers, and optics.

Vedder Holsters Kydex holsters also come in both right-and left-hand orientations and a choice of different-sized clips depending on your belt size. Our IWB holsters can also be ordered with an optional claw attachment for greater concealment. Some holsters have optional sweat shields, combat cuts, and additional clips as well. And from a visual standpoint, all holsters are available in dozens of different color options.

To top it all off, if your gun has any unique customizations, simply reach out to us with the details and we’ll do what we can to craft a holster that works for you.


The P365 was designed to be carried every day, and its small frame, slim design, and light weight make it ideal for EDC. But even the best pistols can be miserable to carry if you have an uncomfortable holster.

If you’re strictly looking for the most comfortable Sig P365 holster, you’ll want to choose a Kydex/leather hybrid. These holsters have a Kydex shell and a leather backing, so you get the durability and precision of the plastic holster while enjoying the comfort and flexibility of leather.

An excellent choice of hybrid IWB holsters is the Vedder ComfortTuck™. This holster is extremely comfortable thanks to its wide leather backing and dual belt clips, which help evenly distribute the weight of your gun. If you prefer to carry OWB, the Quick Draw is another hybrid holster with a comfortable leather backing and well-designed weight distribution.

If you prefer a classic Kydex holster, the Vedder LightTuck™ is our most popular as it is not only easy to conceal, but our customers also find it comfortable in any carry position.


Sig Sauer P365 Concealability

Your Sig P365 is designed to be sleek, lightweight, and compact; it’s the perfect concealed carry weapon. But none of that will matter if your everyday carry holster is bulky, awkward, or snags.

You’ll want to look for a P365 holster designed with a smooth, slim shell to prevent your clothes from clinging to it and causing printing. The Kydex should be as thin as possible while maintaining durability.

But the shell isn’t the only thing to look for. Clips like the Vedder Holsters Rock Solid Spring Steel Belt Clips are designed to aid in the concealment of your holster. Not only are these clips tuckable, but they’re uniquely made of smooth spring steel, which, unlike most bulky plastic clips, are easily hidden by even a simple T-shirt.

Optional accessories like pancake clips and holster claws also aid in concealment by drawing your weapon closer to your body. These add-ons can help prevent printing and keep your pistol in place so you never have to worry about your gun being noticed.


Of all the concealed carry guns on the market today, the Sig P365 remains at the top, and for good reason. Its lightweight design, quality sights, and high round capacity are hard to beat.

To get the most out of your carry pistol, you must pair it with a quality holster. When looking for a Sig Sauer P365 holster, keep an eye out for one that matches the firearm’s lightweight, slim design. You should also look for a durable, adjustable holster that will be comfortable for everyday carry.
