Raven Concealment Reintroduces Limited Time Iconic Phantom Holster

Thursday, July 20th, 2023

Raven Concealment Systems has turned back time to 2015 to bring you a chance to own the concealment holster that started it all – the legendary RCS Phantom.

Over the next several weeks, they will be offering limited-edition drops of Phantom and Phantom LC holsters for dozens of different pistols. What makes this opportunity even more rare is that most of the model-fits we will be releasing have never been available before.

The Phantom was the very first modular, polymer, pancake-style holster. Invented by RCS in 2006 and made wildly popular by being featured in the Magpul Dynamics DVD series, the Phantom was always a highly-coveted holster. So coveted, in fact, that customers who ordered a Phantom between 2009 and 2015 had to be willing to wait through a lead time of 16-18 weeks.

Over the years, countless holster companies, big and small, have come to base their own concealment holsters on the Phantom’s trailblazing design. It’s safe to say that the Phantom is the archetype of the modern concealed-carry holster.

This promotion revives the quintessential Phantom experience:  The sleek lines, body-hugging contours, and modularity allow you to wear IWB or OWB. The envy of all your friends when you show up rocking the most sought-after concealment holster of our generation.

RCS will release new model-fits a few at a time over the next several weeks, so you’ll have to watch for upcoming press releases announcing which models are dropping each time.

Thus far, RCS has announced the following Phantom SKUs:

– CZ P-10C
– Glock 17 Gen 5
– Glock 48 MOS
– Springfield Armory Hellcat Pro
– Staccato C2
– Staccato P
– Walther PDP

…and the following Phantom LC SKUs:

– CZ P-10C + Streamlight TLR-7A
– Sig P365 XMACRO + Streamlight TLR-7A
– Springfield Armory Hellcat Pro + Streamlight TLR-7 Sub
– Staccato C2 + Streamlight TLR-7A
– Staccato P + Surefire X-300U A/B
– Walther PDP + Streamlight TLR-7A

RCS is expected to release additional new model fits early next week, with and without lights, as well as some revolver fits.

The Phantom Summer event is being conducted by pre-order ONLY. You will be charged when you place your order. The estimated lead time is 4-6 BUSINESS WEEKS from the time of order.

V Development Group – Megingjörð PRO, an AIWB-Specific Belt

Tuesday, July 11th, 2023

This is the newest version of our original AIWB-Specific belt design, the Megingjörð PRO.

It is called the PRO because it offers an industry-first type level of belt-side retention design. This retention design applies to any holster system, and any clip version or style, although we highly recommend that you use our DCC Clips and/or our seraph duty-grade AIWB Holster system. This is an upgrade to the already well-tested stiff section which the holster system is attached to. You would attach your holster’s clips inside this section and when you tighten the belt through the double-loops this section provides a level of holster retention that will exceed any concealed duty grade retention requirements.

There is a PALS-style webbing section that allows for a multitude of various blade sheath clips, or anything else you would like to attach to this section for further retention and concealment.

According to Old Norse, the Megingjörð (pronounced Meg-in-ye-ord) is the name of the belt worn by Thor, which translates into “power belt,” a big name for a big concept.

If you carry AIWB (Appendix Inside the Waist Band) then you know belt choice is extremely important. Simply buying a thick leather belt is often the only option for many or going out and getting some tactical-looking belt with a huge buckle. For those who have a lot of experience carrying in with an AIWB setup, they know that having the right belt matters, having big buckles, back-breaking rigid stiffness all around and pointless loops only adds to the detriment of carrying AIWB.
