Sidecar Holster

Ships in 1-5 weeks

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 sometimes occurs carrying appendix. But the most important benefit is having that extra magazine at your disposal. Something we believe is a prudent necessity when carrying a firearm.

These holsters come with a mid-height shirt guard and are compatible with slide-mounted optics and suppressor height sights up to 0.375″ tall.
Holsters for Micro-Compact guns (M&P Shield, Sig P365, Glock 43/43X/48) are cut to accept micro red dots such as the Shield RMSC, Sig RomeoZero, Holosun 507K, etc., but will not fit standard slide mounted optics such as the Trijicon RMR. Trijicon RMRCC will not fit while mounted to a MOS plate.

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.

You could also try the Sidecar with some Discreet Carry Concepts Belt Clips.

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.
How does this compare to “flex” appendix holsters?
Sidecar-style appendix holsters with “flex” material between the gun and the mag can be more comfortable for certain body types. In our experience, this comes at a cost (consistency, stability, durability under stress), which is why we’ve chosen to stick with the fixed design of our Sidecar, as it provides a more stable and concealable platform.

Because the Sidecar is built as a single unit without flex, it always sits on your belt line the same way, making draws clean and consistently smooth every time. It also makes for faster and more consistent reloads, as the magazine is always canted at the same angle and twist. Additionally, there is no risk of the Sidecar pulling apart in actual force-on-force situations. Our holsters aren’t designed to look gucci – they’re meant to take daily abuse and wear and keep performing well. Utility over fashion.
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.
I’m new to guns, which holster should I get?
