    I have a no name iwb kydex holster that I use for my P365 and like it ok. It is comfortable and gets the job done, but I always read about how popular the Vedder Lighttuck is and how people say it is perfect. My question, is the Vedder worth it? $70 for a kydex iwb is quite a bit compared to many other options out there. What makes it so much better than the competition?

    Adjustability and comfort.

    Pretty much. Their metal clips are far thinner and hold the holster in place much better than the plastic offerings many holsters have.

    Lifetime warranty is nice, I had one crack and they replaced it immediately with no questions.

    They don't make a holster for my current EDC and I wish pretty much daily my holster (still nice by PJHolster) was one of my vedders

    I’m a big fan. They are precise and very well made. They fit the gun very well. Nice positive click retention at the trigger guard. Both cant and height adjustable.

    They’re worth the money.

    Each one I’ve owned has been finished very well and fit each gun nicely.

    I have bought other, cheaper holsters and not nearly as much thought towards concealment or comfort has gone into them.

    Only holsters I will buy.

    I'm running the light tuck with my 43x. Very nice holster with no problems.

    LightTuck is great for reasons listed above - I'm with R.B. Riddick - I only buy Vedders at this point. If you can wait, they typically have sales every month or so. P365XL; P365; G43 in pic. Also have one for my G19. Had one for my Walther PPS M2 - but sold it after I sold the gun.

    They are good holsters, I settled on them as my standard. Vedder runs sales pretty much every holiday, even small ones, so you might want to wait for one and get 10-20% off.

    vedder makes an excellent holster. You might want to check out Concealment Express. They make a good holster and not as expensive as Vedder. Also ships a lot faster.

    Or register on their site and don't order one for a while. I swear I get a sale/deal/coupon code about 3 times a week.

    I've told them (and requested on their site a dozen times) give me a Wilson EDC X9 with rail holster and I'll buy it yesterday. No dice yet.

    I suppose if I get a backup Wilson without rail, I can buy a 4" 1911 holster from them and hope it fits.

    Good holster. The only thing I don’t like is the sight track is about 3 times as high as it needs to be and they could remove more material at the bottom edge.

    Actually pretty handy if you decide to go with an RMR and tall sights to cowitness, they fit fine unlike some other options out there.

    I have several Vedder Lighttuck holsters and have found them to be outstanding for my EDC requirements. Well worth the extra money.

    Vedder is my go to IWB. I've tried the cheaper Fomi single clip holsters and could never get them to work. The Vedder can be adjusted for ride height and cant which makes a big difference. At least in my case.

    It’s a very good holster. Well worth the price. Get on their email list and you’ll get a discount code every couple weeks or so.

    Vedder and Theis holsters are my go to for years. The Vedder is not the cheapest kydex, but the fit is perfect and the claw can really make a pistol disappear.
