Raven Concealment Systems – VanGuard 2 Holster Advanced Kit

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

VanGuard 2 Advanced Kit 1

Raven Concealment Systems has released a new holster, the VanGuard 2 Advanced Kit. As the name would imply, the VanGuard 2 Advanced Kit is an upgrade to the VanGuard 2. It consists of the same minimalist trigger guard holster of the VanGuard2, but with the addition of the CLAW from the EIDOLON holster, which leverages the grip of the pistol close to the body, increasing concealbility. The Advanced Kit can be equipped with either a tuckable strut with overhook or with soft loop, is fully ambidextrous, and adjustable for ride-height and cant.

The VanGuard 2 Advanced Kit is designed for all Glock 9/40/357 model pistols, however it won’t work with the G42/G43.

If you’re wondering what RDS mount is on the Glock in the above images, check this video out:

MDM – ALG Defense / Raven Concealment Systems

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015


Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of holster options for pistols equipped with the ALG Defense’s 6-Second Mount. We’ve heard about a model from Raven Concealment Systems and Geiselle Automatics had a preproduction model in their booth.


Bill Geiselle told us that ALG Defense has placed an order with RCS for a run of holsters which should be available soon.


High Threat Concealment/ADS/SIG Sauer Range Day – High Threat Concealment

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Yesterday, High Threat Concealment, ADS, and SIG Sauer held a range day at C2 Shooting Center. The event was fairly low-key and casual, but we still got to see a few new products while we were there.

HTC Reduced Capacity Blowout Kit


The Reduced Capacity Blowout Kit was born from requests for a lower-profile blowout pouch compared to HTC’s standard Blowout Kit. Coming in at 5.5″ x 5.5″ x 1″ compared to the standard Blowout Kit’s 6.5″ x 3.5″ x 1.5″, it is perfectly sized for a minimalist GSW / IFAK kit.

A couple of additional changes include the removal of the dual top-mounted tourniquet straps, which was replaced with an elastic retention sleeve on the bottom of the pouch, and the new carry strap system, which attaches to the exterior of the pouch, keeping the strap out of the way during carry while still making it easily accessible.

HTC IWB Pistol With Light Holster


HTC has developed an IWB holster for pistols with weapon lights. It features dual adjustable tension screws and an adjustable cant. The model shown to us at the range was for a Glock 19 with an InForce APL, although we were told that they will offer models that accommodate a variety of pistols and mounted lights.

The Holster can also be outfitted with various mounting options, such as the belt clip or IWB loops.

HTC IWB Pistol Magazine Holder


Continuing with the concealed carry theme, we were also shown this IWB Pistol Magazine Holder. It features dual adjustable tension screws, and ‘ambidextrous’ magazine insertion. The model shown was designed for a Glock magazine, although other pistol magazine models will be made available.


Evolution Holster


The Evolution Holster is a multi-function holster that comes as a kit, allowing the user to configure for OWB, IWB, or appendix carry, with or without cant. Below you can see the appendix carry configuration in action. These holsters are going to be issued as part of a recently awarded State Department contract.

Haley Strategic – Low Light – Low Vis Combo Package Pre-Order

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

Haley Strategic has just announced their new Low Light – Low Vis Combo Package, which consists of a SureFire XC1 200 Lumen Ultra-Compact Pistol Light and an Incog Shadow Holster; the Shadow Holster is being offered in either a minimalist or +1 mag caddy configuration. After being introduced to the XC1 in late 2014 by the SureFire LE/Military Development Team, they’ve been working closely to insure the Incog Holster line would be ready to support the XC1 on the first day of release.


This is a pre-order. All orders will ship in early September when the SureFire XC1 is officially released.

Chase Tactical – Warrior Wednesday – Warrior Assault Systems Universal Pistol Holster

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015


The Warrior Assault Systems Universal Pistol Holster (UPH) is a versatile adaptable holster that fully adjusts to accommodate a wide variety of large and small frame pistols.


Adjustment is simple and quick by the use of a Velcro closure. Handguns are secured firmly by the use of a molded composite internal housing. The weapon is released by means of a push down thumb release.


The rear of the holster has 3 rows of MOLLE webbing with 2 MOLLE arms, which allows it to be attached to a diverse range of Warrior Assault Systems gear such as the PLB belt, Frag Belts, Cobra belts and Rigger Belts. The Universal Pistol Holster’s MOLLE also allows it to be attached to plate carriers and chest rigs such as the Warrior Assault Systems DCS Plate Carrier.


The Universal Pistol Holster is currently available in MultiCam, Coyote, OD Green, and A-TACS-FG.

All Warrior Assault Systems products are made from genuine U.S. Mil Spec materials and hardware.
