    AIWB sidecar holster for a Sig P365. I’ll be adding this to the list now.

    Thanks. It came out better than expected for the first go. I was using scrap leather so it looks a bit rough. I'm going to shrink that area in the middle some. That will lessen the footprint overall. Just ordered some modwings and dedicated clips for this style. Seems to be all the rage on instagram so lets see how this goes. It was surprisingly comfortable and would be even better with the clips I have coming.

    That's a lot of rig but it's heading in the right direction... Dig it...

    Yeah, it’s large for sure. But I’ve not seen a sidecar I’d consider small. Going to shrink this one a bit next go around. I might take a pic with my iwb hybrid back.

    Biggest issue is the cants are wrong for the application. You have a canted pistol and a straight mag. Should be the other way around. It's an unnatural draw angle for both of them and potentially dangerous for the pistol draw.
    Also your grip position is too low to draw with a proper grip in the picture of you wearing it. Needs to be able to sit higher and it looks like it adjusts the wrong way(as in you have it topped out and it's not enough).

    Just my opinion...

    Gotcha. It might have a bit of adjustment with the nylon clips but not a ton on the upside. That little gun gives you a lot less to work with too. It seemed to draw well but I did have to push to get a good grip. Going to wait on the clips I ordered to tinker some more.

    The materials add some oddities too. This isn’t a style generally done in leather but if it’s done right I think it will wear well. Kydex shines with some of these minimalist holsters. It takes a bit more material to pull it off with leather sometimes.

    Makes sense. Maybe not the material for the style then. The flexibility of leather may keep a holster that rides high enough for appendix from staying right to the body after it breaks in.

    Interesting concept if you can make it work. If I can ditch this gut and you work it out, I'd be interested in one...
