The Sidecar is a dedicated appendix holster that features a built-in mag carrier. Carrying an extra magazine in the appendix position can help balance the weight of the firearm, and distribute the bulge that can sometimes occur carrying AIWB. But the most important benefit is actually having an extra magazine at your disposal. Something we believe is a prudent necessity when carrying a firearm.

The mag carrier is canted slightly for increased comfort and easier access due to natural body mechanics. Both the firearm and magazine carrier feature variable retention so you can adjust them to your preference. Every Sidecar comes pre-installed with two Tuckable Clips on the front, and a Raptor Claw next to the trigger guard. The Claw pulls the firearm grip closer to the body to improve concealment. It can be adjusted or removed to suit your preference.
Can you wear this holster with a dress shirt tucked in?
Yep! The shirt can be tucked behind the clips and the holster will conceal. But the clips will be visible over your belt.
I’m… larger. Can I wear this holster?
It’s difficult to give a simple yes or no answer to this question, because everyone is a little different. However, there are lots of larger folks who use and like the Sidecar. Whether or not it works for you depends on what you wear, how tight your belt is, and your personal preferences about comfort.
How tight can the Sidecar get?
It can get pretty tight, but we don’t recommend you have it so tight that it becomes difficult to remove the pistol.
Which shirt guard height do you all recommend?
We recommend the mid guard. It makes it easier to re-holster, helps keep your shirt out of the holster, and with the pistol removed it won’t jab your stomach as much as a high guard.
