Suggestion for a minimalist holster system for G19/23 IWB

As the title implies, I'm looking for suggestions for an IWB VERY minimalist type holster for a G19/23. Most likely looking for something very thin like kydex unless there is a very thin leather option that someone knows of. It doesn't absolutely have to have a rigid mouth for reholstering. I'm wondering if there is a kydex type IWB holster out there that only covers the trigger guard and slide maybe with a couple of belt loops or something like that. I'm looking for something that won't add much more than the width of the gun itself. I've tried the leather kydex combos like the crossbreed type holsters. Just way too much material for me. Most leather is too thick. I've thought about the conSEAL holster by Sealed Mindset, but I'm a little concerned about the gun moving around a bit. It's not really a holster, but looks like a better option than the MIC.

I carry my 19/23 in a Alien Gear holster.

Raven Concealment Eiodolon, may look bulky in pictures but disappears inside the waistband.

The Raven VG-2 is as minimalist as things get, but, being very specialized, it doesn't really do everything that a good holster should. It doesn't protect you from a hot slide, and it doesn't force the grip into the abdomen to enhance concealment. I suggest that you look here:

Try a Bianchi holster.

Although I have 3 Trigger Guard types, I like the MIC best.

Did not know about the Vanguard II from RCS. I'm going to check this out further. May be the solution I'm looking for.

Thanks!

After posting this thread, I did a search on the Bay for G19 concealment holsters and found several minimalist type kydex holsters from independent Joe's out there that would be worth a try at such a cheap cost.

I prefer the Raven Vanguard II over the MIC.

Blade-tech Nano. About as minimalist as you can get and still work well.

They might have their place, but they're no replacement for a quality custom holster. And, like most of us, whose holster searches were long, and convoluted, salted with notions of economy (that turn out to have been false-economy), you might end up with a few big boxes of holsters.

If you want to save time and money, and storage space, I suggest that you look here:

I have a Vanguard 2. It works extremely well for concealment under a t-shirt. Phlster makes an interesting looking AIWB minimalist holster as well but I haven't tried it.

For IWB with my G19 or G23, I use the N82 holster. Very comfortable.

The Galco Stow-N-Go is a really good (and inexpensive) holster. I use one all the time for my 26 and sometimes 19.

But the MIC gives the added ability for a handy in-vehicle weapon:

Carry Issues

That must be a BIG Honda to need a "Thumb buster" to make turns with!!
