What AIWB?

Appendix Inside the Waistband, or AIWB, carry is a method of carrying inside the waistband that positions the holster in front of the body. The gun covers the appendix, hence the name. We cover all the other positions over here.

So, why has appendix carry taken over the carry market?

Concealed Carry AIWB Holster
Appendix carry is quickly becoming the default concealed carry method for many shooters, both new and experienced.

First, the concealed in concealed carry means something. Appendix rigs make it very easy to conceal a firearm, more so than any other holster options that sit on the waist.

Appendix positions the gun in such a manner that it’s completely hidden. By positioning the gun in front of the body, there are no odd lumps off the side. The way the gun sits also makes concealing a larger gun easier.

Concealment Express G19 AIWB, Front
The Glock 19 isn’t the world’s smallest pistol, but with the right AIWB holster, it can sure disappear under a shirt, as shown above.

Besides covering up larger guns, pistols adorned with weapon lights or red dots also benefit from the extra concealment granted by the appendix position.

Appendix carry also helps make a fast draw. The position of the gun is natural and easy to reach, and drawing and presenting are intuitive.

Having the firearm at the front of your body makes the gun tougher to take. This means better weapons retention, which can be extremely valuable in close quarters.

Multiple people on the Pew Pew Tactical staff carry AIWB. Pictured above is Sean Curtis’s EDC rig.

AIWB makes a ton of sense, but only if you have the right holster. Luckily, we got the goods to help you make the right choice.

Best AIWB Holsters

1. Tenicor VELO4

Tenicor’s VELO4 is explicitly designed for appendix carry, and Tenicor took every aspect of its design into serious consideration.

Tenicor Velo Holster with G19
The VELO4 cuts out a lot of unnecessary bulk t seen on other AIWB holsters.

The VELO4 is contoured for the body, and a camming bar steers the grip towards the body to further reduce printing. Plus, the holster itself is incredibly thin, making it disappear even more.

Any holster can be comfortable for 2 hours, but how about 12? That’s the real challenge, and the VELO4 is absolutely up to the task.

Tenicor Metal Clips & Camming Bar

While concealment is maximized, the VELO4 still provides a swift and easy draw without holster movement thanks to the all-metal, dual-clip design. Tenicor calls it the Trucise fit.

If you have your gun outfitted like you’re John Wick, then you’ll be covered. This holster accommodates red dots and tall sights. The open-bottom design also allows for muzzle devices.

2. CrossBreed Rogue

The Rogue from CrossBreed signals the first time the company has ditched its hybrid design in favor of an all-polymer design. The Rogue comes as both a holster and a system that implements a sidecar-style mag pouch.

If the user wishes, a sidecar can be attached for magazine storage, as shown above. (Photo: Shooting Illustrated)

The sidecar mag pouch is attached to a piece of leather attached to the holster. Instead of having one stiff piece of polymer, the leather allows for bending. This increases comfort and decreases the chance of the sidecar breaking.

The Rogue excels in concealment. It disappears under a shirt and makes carrying my P365 a breeze. CrossBreed sets the design up with metal belt clips that are very strong. They resist bending well and remain in good shape after lots of use.

The Rogue remains fairly low profile, even when paired with something like a Glock 19. (Photo: Personal Defense World)

CrossBreed also installed a removable claw to aid in concealment when carrying AIWB. Users can also adjust ride height, cant, and retention, and choose whatever attachment clips they want.

User adjustability is a big deal to me, and the Rogue excels here.

If I had any complaints, it would be the price, with the system coming in around $100. The Rogue is brand new and only seems to fit the most popular of guns, but CrossBreed is likely to grow the system and offer more firearm fitment options as time passes.

3. Phlster Floodlight

If you are like me and have heavily invested in weird guns, then the Phlster Floodlight is for you.

The Floodlight is one of the few universal holsters that doesn’t suck. I’d go as far as to say it’s the best universal holster. Instead of using the gun, it indexes on your pistol light and is adjustable via a shock cord.

PHLster Floodlight IWB CZ P09

Phlster’s Floodlight allows you to carry a compact or full-size pistol with either a TLR-1, a Surefire X300U, or a Modlite PL350. Beyond being a light-compatible AIWB rig, it’s also very adjustable and modular.

You can easily adjust ride height, cant, retention, and clip style. Getting this holster set up for you and your carry style and comfort isn’t difficult.

PHLster Floodlight AIWB
The Floodlight is great for those who carry light-bearing guns that aren’t quite as mainstream as others.

Once properly set up, you’ll be surprised how comfy carrying a full-sized gun can be. It took me a little time to get the rig to fit just how I liked it, but it was time well spent.

My main complaint is one Phlster can’t fix — not if they want to keep it universal. The holster is fairly bulky, but that is a byproduct of being able to accommodate so many different guns.

If you carry an unusual CZ, Walther, or another less common pistol, then this is the holster for you. This is also an excellent option for those who carry and switch between multiple light-bearing pistols

4. Harry’s Holster Singleton

Harry’s Holsters makes some of the best holsters ever from the ground up.

The molding for the Singleton is precise, and the quality is evident even at first glance. (Photo: Terribly Tactical)

They are an all-polymer brand that does a lot to innovate and explore new concealment concepts. I could’ve thrown a dart at their catalog and gotten a great holster out of it, but the Singleton gets the nod for a few reasons.

If you want a holster that doesn’t move, this is the one. The monobloc clips are metal and feature ‘cloth grabber’ hooks that really dig in. This makes it a pain to take on and off, but the point is that it sticks.

Not a Glock or a Sig person? Then Harry’s may have you covered. (Photo: Harry’s Holsters)

The Singleton offers fitment for a wider variety of firearms, which may benefit some of those who carry something other than Glock or Sig.

Additionally, the holster is ambidextrous, and users can adjust the cant, ride height, and add a wing or wedge if desired. We also get compatibility with red dots for those who take that route.

It’s a very modern design that will make your gun disappear, and it’s available for a great price. The Singleton is priced to move and is made for enough models that it’ll cover most people’s bases.

5. Tulster Oath

When it comes to carrying little guns, less can often be more, and Tulster Oath offers a minimalist option for concealed carry of small guns.

Sometimes a no-frills approach is the best approach. (Photo: The Armory Life)

I use the Oath with my P365, which comes in handy when wearing clothes that tend to print more. If I’m wearing dress pants instead of jeans and tucking my shirt, then the Tulster Oath is perfect. Its small, thin design allows it to disappear.

The single clip is enough for a small gun but is made from metal to ensure it remains strong. An added claw increases concealment, and the cut of the holster allows for red dots.

The simple design of the Oath translates into a thin profile without a ton of fuss. (Photo: Tulster)

Also present is a raised sight channel to accommodate taller sights, and the muzzle is open-ended, which allows for compensator and muzzle brake compatibility.

The thin nature and lightweight design also help with comfort, and the medium-high sweat guard provides pretty decent protection — all while ensuring guns disappear with ease regardless of accessories.

You can adjust the cant and ride height, but the retention remains preset. This holster is friendly to lefties as well, as it is ambidextrous.

When concealment can be difficult, the Tulster Oath steps up. It’s simple, reliable, rugged, and a great choice if you wear more restrictive clothing.

6. Raven Concealment Eidolon

The Raven Concealment Eidolon is the premier holster for medium-frame Glock pistols.

The Eidolon is a slick, yet easily accessorized design. (Photo: Ammoland)

This rig comes ready to add all the accessories you could ever want. I mean that for both your holster and your gun.

Running red dots, suppressor-ready barrels, suppressor height sights, or extended controls are all doable with the Eidolon. On top of that, you can change the holster’s clips, add a wing, add a wedge, and whatever else you can stick on a holster.

You can have it for whatever gun you want, as long as it is a medium-framed Glock. (Photo: Breach Bang Clear)

The Eidolon makes it downright easy to carry a Glock 19 or even the bigger 17. Comfy and AIWB don’t always go together, but the Eidolon is one of the comfiest holsters in my box of holsters.

I joke, but the Eidolon disappears your Glock and makes you feel good about it. At the same time, you won’t have issues getting a proper firing grip and a good draw which will translate into a good presentation, which could save your life.

If you’re new to AIWB and packing a Glock, I’d go with the Eidolon. Unfortunately, they aren’t made for any other guns — but sometimes making the best takes a concentrated approach.

7. Dark Star Gear Orion

The Dark Star Gear Orion keeps things simple and versatile. It can double as a strong side IWB rig or an appendix rig.

Concealed Carry Glock 19, Belt, Holster

You can toss a claw on for AIWB and get your deep concealment on, but the Orion’s real claim to fame is making big guns disappear.

Concealing a full-sized Glock, PDP, or Sig isn’t easy, but the Orion can lend a hand. It’s a modern holster design for modern guns, so it is great for red dots and suppressor height sights.

Concealed Carry Holster Belt Gun

Fitting modern goodies to the Orion isn’t hard, and you can toss on claws, different clicks, wedges, and beyond to make the holster a bit better for you. Concealed carry is highly personal, and the Orion allows for that.

On top of accessorizing, you can adjust the ride height, the cant, and retention. You make this holster work for you without compromising the features that matter most.

Outside of comfort and concealment, the Orion allows for a good grip presentation to make your draw easy while being a safe and effective method to carry your firearm.

Editor’s Note

Another great option that some of the folks at PPT like is the Hidden Hybrid Holsters AIWB. If you’re a fan of leather AND Kydex, this is the one you want and is featured in our general Best Concealed Carry Holster article.

The single clip Appendix Carry keeps things hidden while also balancing comfort.

The leather they choose and the suede backer make all the difference when it comes to comfort. It’s what our founder uses for his EDC with his Sig P365XL.

While shopping, I recommend grabbing a claw attachment, which helps rotate the grip of the gun into your body.

Final Thoughts

I wasn’t sold on appendix carry at first. I found the holsters downright uncomfortable and painful at times. They poked, prodded, and pinched me, turning me away from them in the process.

Appendix Carry, HHH with EMP
Holsters are only getting better, and now is as good a time as any to try out AIWB carry if you haven’t already.

However, once I discovered that good AIWB holsters existed that addressed the comfort factor, I was hooked.

The ability to deeply conceal weapons comfortably without compromise is a winning combination.

    It may be just my body type, but even with my little P365, the 3 different appendix carry holsters I have purchased, (priced $65, $89, & $106) all manage to jam into my groin whenever seated. Tried all the adjustments….no help. I’m 6’ at 185lbs. I definitely find the appendix carry to be the best all around position for fast access for me. I wish someone would come up with a front of body inside holster similar to the s.o.b. holster worn in the back. It would cant the pistol much closer to horizontal and could eliminate the sitting issue. It might even work for my 1911.

    Some things to remember when carrying a firearm. They are both derivative of the rule to never point your firearm at anything you don't want to destroy: 1. Never point your pistol at your genitals. 2. Never point your pistol at your femoral artery. 3. Never point your pistol at yourself. Appendix carry violates the rule. You wouldn't carry your AR or shotgun pointed at your genitals, femoral artery, or at yourself. So, you shouldn't carry your pistol that way either.

    I would have included at least 1 high-speed holster company for people to choose from. When I say "high speed", I mean companies that have options to add lights, optics, compensators, that have combo options, and that use better materials and QC than companies like Crossbreed. A few examples:
    -Legacy Firearms Co
    -Fury Carry Solutions (a bit cheaper, but one of the biggest selections and fastest shipping)

    I was surprised to see that Alien Gear wasn't mentioned by anyone. I have appendix carried a Glock 43 daily with mine for about 3 years and it is the most comfortable AIWB holster that I have ever used. From walking around, to office work, to 600+ mile days on a motorcycle, it is as comfortable as I can reasonably expect it to be. I've never been called out as far as printing and even people who know that I always carry have asked me why I'm not carrying while I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I'm not trying to convince anyone that it should be in the top 10, I am wondering if there are drawbacks that I am not aware of or haven't experienced. Thank you in advance for all comments.

      I've had Alien Gear as my setup for well over 6 years and carry regularly. I've never known myself to print and my wife has numerous times came up and wrapped her arm around me only to act surprised that I had my pistol on me. Super comfortable and numerous 4-8hr drives where I forget I even have it on.

      It has a clip that allows your shirt to be tucked behind it, much like my Alien Gear Cloak 2.0 holsters. That allows only the clip to show once your shirt is tucked in.

    I found a bunch of AIWB holsters (for my 365XL) on Amazon. Many (Kydex) can be easily modified for use with red dots and have a comfortable "backing" (side against skin) that keeps the pistol from digging in (especially when sitting). They are adjustable for angle as I prefer my grip to be parallel to my belt.
    And - They are priced right (less expensive).

    Hmmm. Maybe I will have to give this AIWB carry another try. WE used to joke about appendix carry as the "soprano" carry - if you had a ND, you would be - "singing soprano". Usually soprano carry was accomplished by just stuffing the firearm in your trousers, with maybe a shoelace loop ( looping a shoelace around your belt providing loops to insert your pistol through, leather preferred) to keep the gun somewhat in place. This is a viable practice when no holster is available, but I don't recommend it for soprano carry.
    Enter the IWB holster. I think I have five or six - none of which lend themselves to comfort, concealment or secure carry. Most that stayed where they were supposed to printed terribly. Or were just plain miserable to use.
    I used to carry a Sig 220 in an owb holster (Galco Concealable) and use a cover shirt - Hawaiian in the summer, wool in the winter. Worked well - never got called on it and was very fast. Now I carry a Sig 365xl the same way - but am looking for a new option. Of course I still carry a backup in an inside the pocket holster, but pray I will never have to use it! Especially when seated!
    You guys have renewed my hope!

    I had a Tulster OATH for my Glock 48 MOS and I currently have a Philster Pro holster for the same pistol. I also have basic AIWB holsters for my Glock 19 and my Bul Armory SAS II Ultralight. None of these holsters is as comfortable as my Tier 1 Concealment Axis Elite (I have 3 - one for each of the pistols listed above). Note that I wear my EDC G48 MOS for about 12 hours a day, during much of the time being stuck behind a desk or driving.

    In fact, the reasons I have a more traditional AIWB holster for each of these pistols is (1) I didn't want to wait for Tier 1 Concealed to build my Axis Elite holsters, and (2) the Axis Elite is not well suited to using with a tucked shirt.

    Not to knock any of the other holster builders, but in my book, Tier 1 Concealed is the best.

      For me, the answer is to carry in a Tier 1 Concealment Axis Elite (although other sidecar holsters may work, too, I just don't have any experience with them).

      On those rare occasions when I need to wear a tucked shirt, I fall back on my G48 MOS in a Philster Pro, but it is simply not as comfortable as my Axis Elites.

    I normally have no desire to leave comments on reviews. However, I must ask why one of the most popular AIWB holster manufacturers was never mentioned. Tier1 Concealed makes one of the best rigs among the plethora of other suppliers of AIWB holsters, if not the best. My wife and I carry 10+ hours/day 24-7 and both train and teach with Tier1 exclusively now. The quality, fit & finish is perfection but most importantly they provide the necessary concealment and comfort many only dream of. Perhaps you people should expand your searches and consider such reputable companies such as Tier 1 Concealed and others who make premium equipment by professionals for discerning consumers?

    While crossbreed is my usual go-to because of the fantastic hybrid holsters, they usually take a bit longer to come out with customizable options like a setup for my p365-xl with recover tactical rail and Olight pl2 mini Valkyrie. I was able to get this setup with mckinatec holsters and their Talon appendix holster and I am beyond satisfied with it. The fit was perfect and retention was amazing.

    Another company with nice customization options I just ran into was Blackpoint Tactical. I got their dual point aiwb holster and can definitely say it also is a solid choice.
