  1. Travis Ciminello

    My go to holster company I carry my weapon with a tlr-1 and an Rmr every day with this

  2. Justin (verified owner)

    You cannot beat these holsters! From now on, every pistol I own will have one.

  3. Richard McMullen (verified owner)

    Absolutely thrilled with my lightbearing AIWB holster. Fits my gun perfectly, it’s confortable, and it prints less than any other holster I’ve worn. Also, ANR’s awesome customer service is worth mentioning! They’ve definitely earned a loyal customer

  4. Nate m (verified owner)

    Got one for a Hk P30 w/ a TLR1 light. As bulky as it sounds, barely noticeable. Highly recommend.

  5. mky.sami (verified owner)

    Amazing quality. Wonderful company. Great customer service. I could not be happier with my order, so much so that I am right now ordering my second holster!
    Thank you guys so much for the love and pride you take in your workmanship that truly shows in the final product 🙂

  6. Stanton (verified owner)

    Got this for a cz p07 with a tlr-1 HL now the holster its self is very good quality and has the best claw yet. Clip is great too needs a lot of adjusting but once you get it right it’s perfect.
    Quality 10/10. Now… the tlr1 might not be the best light to appendix lol…. I’ve gotten use to it and can comfortably sit walk and stand with it all day. I dont regret picking such a big light but some of you might for appendix. I’m 5 ft 9 about 135 pounds. All in all no regrets.

  7. Matthew

    I ordered an IWB Claw holster for my 229 and it’s been flawless. The gun sits where I need it to be and it does a fantastic job of being comfortable all day long. I would highly recommend a holster from ANR Designs to anyone who is looking for a superior fit and finish with a holster!

  8. Nathan (verified owner)

    Love the holster retention is good and the fit for my MP 2.0c with CMR 208 is great. However, the plastic on the inside rubs off on my light and muzzle leaving marks on them when I draw and holster repeatedly it can be excessive. Other than that it’s a great holster.

  9. Sam (verified owner)

    100% worth the wait. Got an AIWB for a vp9sk with tlr7. Very comfortable, perfect retention, smooth/rounded edges on the holster. Love everything about it. Only thing missing is peniflage (;

  10. Jason Bauri (verified owner)

    I used to carry 4 o’clock with no problem or complaints. Tried out appendix from AnR and never looked back. Comfortable, easy draw, no printing, still comfortable while driving.

  11. Evan (verified owner)

    I carry a CZ P10C with a comp and PL-2. This holster conceals like you aren’t even carrying. I’d give it 10 stars if I could

  12. Steve (verified owner)

    Just got my holster a few days ago and I’m truly impressed. I have a cz p07 with streamlight tlr 7 holster. It’s very well made and very comfortable to carry plus easy to conceal. I have experience with trex arms, guncraft, bravo concealment , and now anr… I would definitely choose the anr as top dog given my experience.

  13. Dan (verified owner)

    I don’t know what witchcraft ANR is using to make these holsters but I can now easily and comfortable AIWB carry my M9A3 with X300U light. I was carrying a Glock 36 with an APLC Glock light on it and that was (for some reason) uncomfortable as all get out. I should mention that I’m not as in shape as I used to be (but round is a shape?) and I can still easily carry my Beretta. Totally blown away by this holster and am considering getting one made for all of my guns. Conceal carry 500 magnum anyone?

  14. David (verified owner)

    We have multiple holsters from ANR. As always an excellently made holster. Keep up the great work up there in Manch Vegas.

  15. connerteague (verified owner)

    Purchased one for my IWI Masada and I must say it is probably one of the best holsters I’ve ever owned. Right out of the packaging perfect fit no bullshit.

  16. Adam (verified owner)

    First, the holster is very well made, safe, fits the firearm well, and is offered for a pistol and light combination that is surprisingly hard to find (Glock 19 gen 5 and TLR-7).

    I really only have two main gripes that prevent me from giving this holster a perfect 5 star review.
    1. The holster lacks an audible click when the pistol is fully seated, which can be nice if you want to reholster your firearm while maintaining situational awareness. Bravo Concealment holsters are way cheaper and offer this feature, but I don’t fault ANR for not including it.

    2. For my carry position, 4 o’clock IWB, claw holsters have a tendency to get bumped and cant in one way or another when I do things like sit down, and the blade offered does little to prevent that. I fixed this problem on my holster by replacing the blade with a Haley Strategic/G-Code clip. For this price range, I’d like to see some kind of second clip on the order page.

    Those two gripes aside, I like this holster and use it daily, and would recommend it to my friends.

  17. Jorge (verified owner)

    Easily the most comfortable and effective holster I own. Clean draw and you can wear it for hours

  18. Gregorio Rosario (verified owner)

    Every morning I wake up, get ready for my day and put on my holster with my firearm, I know what its like to have a father thanks to this holster. I start to have memories of events that never happened. Things like going camping and being taught how to start a fire and hunt for my own food; or getting yelled at for holding the flashlight wrong while working under the hood of our car. And finally being told that they’re going to the gas station to get some cigarettes and milk only to grow old with the person they always called a “cheating whore”. So thank you guys for this.

    I recently purchased an ANR AIWB holster for an aftermarket Glock. I was a little apprehensive about the purchase since I typically carry OWB. I’ve been wanting to try this option and I’m glad that I did, and more so that I chose ANR Design for the holster. The holster itself is top notch with great retention without impeding the draw. The kydex and hardware are very sturdy giving me utmost confidence while carrying. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the clip being plastic versus metal but it hasn’t been an issue thus far. When carrying, there is little to no printing even with my less than stellar physique. All in all, I’m very pleased about trying AIWB, and even more pleased I chose ANR Design for this holster option.

  20. Greg Z. (verified owner)

    Can’t really add anything that’s not been said above. I have the IWB with claw and I love this holster. I would recommend ANR Design to all looking for a quality custom holster. They have a customer for life. Well worth the wait.

  21. Charles Carlisle Jr. (verified owner)

    This was my second holster from ANR and won’t be the last! Extremely comfortable and the quality is top notch.

  22. John Robinson (verified owner)

    This holster is the bees knees and the cats meow. Carry it appendix and it is super comfortable. Solid retention. And their customer support is faster than my ex-wife through her new husband”s credit line.

  23. Caleb (verified owner)

    Beyond impressed with this holster! I can’t say anything that hasn’t been said already, but I strongly recommend ANR. It makes carrying a pistol with a weapon light comfortable.

  24. Mike Dobel (verified owner)

    The best holster maker out there. ANR are wizards with Kydex. I can carry my P-10C with Inforce light mounted in my new appendix rig with ease. Do yourself a favor and order already.

  25. Logan (verified owner)

    I just want to say that I’ve been carrying a PPQ appendix for a few years now and hating every second of it. I was convinced I needed to scale down to a subcompact gun to keep carrying, and often found myself leaving the house without my gun due to discomfort. I have been tempted to buy one of these holsters and have often settled for cheaper alternatives to no avail. I took advantage of the Black Friday sale and it was the best decision ever. Thanks to this holster I am now appendix carrying a SP-01 Tactical WITH a weapon light and I absolutely love it. Thanks for creating an awesome product. I am now a customer for life and will recommend these holsters to everyone.

  26. Chris (verified owner)

    Got a holster for a pf940c with tlr1 and holosun optic, fit and quality are perfect.

  27. Travis (verified owner)

    Absolutely stoked on my new holster. I use several different holsters for different applications and the ANR allows me to carry my Glock 19 securely and discreetly.

  28. John Sue (verified owner)

    I, like many of you who carry on a daily basis, have boxes of holsters. something was just not right with most of them, too bulky not enough retention or unstable on my belt. I can Honestly say that none of those attributes apply to any A&R holster i have and i now have a few of them. they are all comfortable, stable with good retention, not to mention that they look great. I am a convert, and it doesn’t hurt that they are made right here in New Hampshire (Live Free or Die). The service department is also top notch. keep up the great work folks!! Thank you for a great product.

  29. Matthew Ashworth (verified owner)

    I needed a holster for my P-10c with Olight PL mini 2. Found a few that provided this option. Someone recommended ANR. I had been watching they’re YouTube channel for a while and had no clue. Though not the cheapest they are definitely worth the price. Extremely comfortable, audible click when the light is mounted, and still holds fairly firm without it. I’ve done suggested to quite a few of my friends to check them out. It also takes up less real estate than my crossbreed. Thank you guys for a great product and a quick shipping time. Less than two weeks. I didn’t expect hat right before Christmas.

  30. Jordan Harris (verified owner)

    This holster is awesome! I purchased one for my Canik TP-9 SF Elite Combat with an Inforce 3.0 light. The holster came and my gun didn’t fit properly because of the threaded barrell cap which didn’t allow the gun to seat completely in the holster. I emailed customer support and they immediately sent me a label to ship the holster back for a fix. They quickly fixed it and now the holster fits my gun like a dream! Super product and even better customer support!

  31. Carlton E (verified owner)

    Second holster from ANR, but first light bearing. I chose ANR again because of the build quality, comfort, and extra mile ANR goes to engage with their customers. The black multi-cam looks great, too!

  32. Dalton Hile (verified owner)

    Bought a holster for a Glock 19 with TLR-1HL. Works great, was shipped faster than expected as well. Will order again.

  33. Kayla Phillips

    Will this fit my hk vp9sk with standoff device?
    Thank you

    • Alex Costa

      not with standoff device.

  34. ryan h dingfelder (verified owner)

    Does not look like the photos, loose fit.

    • Alex Costa

      Have you contacted customer service through the contact page with your order number as the subject? Have you tightened the retention screws on your claw to increase retention? A XC1 is a smooth body light and has very poor retention capabilities.

  35. Travis Sevilla (verified owner)

    My 2nd holster and its awesome as expected. Fit, quality, and a general attention to rad products is what you get when you order from ANR.

  36. Joey (verified owner)

    I’ve only had the holster for 2 weeks, so far best hiding holster I’ve ever used. I carry a sig 1911 full size with a tlr 1 and 10 round chip mckormic mags. It’s huge and I’m a skinny guy. I was never an appendix Carry guy till I started running this gun and realized how hard it was to hide this on my hip. I’ve used several holsters and so far this is the best option I’ve found.

  37. Michael A. Schumann (verified owner)

    Stop reading reviews and order! You won’t be disappointed, great turn around time too.

    Great holster, worth the wait. My sig P320 with TRL7 V2 fits perfect and wears very comfortable.

  43. Jeremy (verified owner)

    Received holster well within quoted time frame. The holster is very comfortable in the 4 o’clock position. This says a lot for a kydex holster with light and a RMR on gun. Much like another reviewer I had to remove the claw and place a C-clip from another holster manufacturer to get the exact cant and stability I was wanting. I blame this solely on myself as it is designed for appendix carry and I was unable to get adjusted to it being there for comfort reasons. I will try again in future and hopefully I can get comfortable with it there as it prints very little and would speed up my presentation of the firearm.
    Very well built holster. Will definitely recommend it to everyone.

  44. David Rethoret (verified owner)

    Just ordered a light bearing IWB. they completed the order faster than expected even during these trying times. Holster is as comfortable as I can expect given the size of my carry and they’re one of the few companies that even offers a custom holster for my pistol. Will definitely be buying more holsters from these guys in the future

  45. Hunter (verified owner)

    My favorite holsters, bar none. I don’t always carry with a SureFire X300, but when I do, I carry in an ANRDesign Kydex lightbearing AIWB holster

    I’ve got one for both my Glock 19 MOS and my P-01 with a SureFire X300 A or B, respectively. Absolutely no complaints about the holsters. Fit and finish are superb. Great retention and belt clip. Printing is minimal with the claw attachment.

    You can’t go wrong with a holster from ANR Design. I already have six and I’m planning on many more in the future.

  46. Chris (verified owner)

    Great holster for my M9a3! I highly recommend this!

  47. Stefan Kitsos (verified owner)

    (Ordered for: Glock 45 w/ RMR & TLR-7A)

    Fits like a glove! Maximum concealment and comfort! Obvious attention to detail. Quality hardware is used. I can say confidently that ANR Design did not cut corners when engineering these holsters. I will definitely be supporting their business by buying more ANR products down the road!

  48. Chase (verified owner)

    Great holster fit comfortably easy to adjust quick shipping given the lead time

  49. Luis (verified owner)

    Great quality holster with great retention, I have a walther CCP m2 and no one was making AIWB holsters for the CCP m3 much less light bearing. ANR was able to get it done and fits perfectly. I will Submit an order for my DESERT EAGLE .40 OWB HOLSTER through ANR.

  50. Charles Carlisle Jr. (verified owner)

    This was my third holster from AnR and my son’s first. Just like mine it’s perfect! Best holsters in the market!

  51. Trevor Gannon (verified owner)

    Got one of these for my Polymer 80 G19 build. It’s the most comfortable and concealable AIWB holster I’ve ever owned. I’m gonna be buying a lot more holsters from ANR Design in the future for sure. However, I would’ve given it five stars were it not for one small issue. The Brownell’s RMR-cut slide I’m running has some sharp edges where an OEM Glock slide is rounded, those sharp edges dig into the inside of the holster. When I draw my gun, the slide comes out covered in fine kydex dust. Not a big deal, I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem if you had an OEM Glock slide and I’m sure it won’t happen after the holster is well-broken in.

    It was difficult to find a holster that fit my gun and light. This one fits great and is working out well for me thus far.

  55. Jacob Lane (verified owner)

    I own different holsters for my different handguns, but I think ANR just found themselves a lifelong customer after my recent purchase for my FN 509c. It’s easily the best concealment and most comfort I get out of any of my holsters. The retention is a little (VERY minimal) to tight for my preference, but I’m going to let it break in a little bit before I contact their customer service regarding retention adjustment.
    Side Note: Not sure why it happened, but ANR also added free “rush” shipping to my order. I’m not complaining!

  56. Sean (verified owner)

    Best AIWB holster I’ve ever owned. The claw helps keep the grip tight against my body, which means less printing. ANR also has the most extensive selection of custom holsters that I have found so far. Definitely will have to recommend to my friends and family.

  57. Matt (verified owner)

    Great design, excellent product, great service. Turn around time was exactly as stated. Easy Custom build. Purchased for my G45 w/optic and inforce light. Comfortable and secure. I recommend ANR for custom builds.

  58. Guadalupe Garcia (verified owner)

    Just received my IWB holster got my Glock 19. The very first thing i noticed was the build quality. Very durable and strong. Second thing i notice was the retention was damn near perfect out of the box. The next thing i noticed was the comfort while wearing it. Other holsters id have to fiddle with the clips, adjust the height or angel and play around with the location ( shift from 11:30 ro 12:30). Not this one. It sits perfect on me. Best holster i have used to date.

  59. Seth (verified owner)

    Awesome holster, finally able to comfortably carry my p2k with red dot and wml.

  60. ARP (verified owner)

    I ordered a Glock 17 with TLR1 IWB holster. Let me just say, this thing is the tits!! Everything i was looking for. Minimal amount of kydex around the base of the holster, great retention. Sturdy clip makes every draw consistent, and yet easy to remove at the end of the day. I’m 5′ 6″ 170lbs. Conceals like a dream. I initially went into shopping for a holster i may have to modify to fit my needs and comfort. No mods necessary! Thanks!

  61. James (verified owner)

    Purchased for a shield/tlr-6 and it is my new favorite holster. I have the usual box of old holsters from various brands and handgun models. I’ve never had a holster that conceals this well while still being comfortable. I’ve checked out a lot of other kydex brands and have no plans on using anything else in the future.

    Second purchase with ANR, excellent quality, great fit, comfortable IWB.

  63. Nathan Crocker (verified owner)

    First off I love the holster. It will take some getting used to since I am new to appendix carry. My first impression was the high quality. ANR does not have an option for my Springfield XD Mod2 4″ Service Model in 9mm. However, it is the same size as the XDM. My light bearing holster fits my Mod2 like a glove. It is bulky, but that could be due to the size of the firearm I’m and carrying AIWB. For me, it’s perfect if I will be walking or on my feet for a while. Bending over or squatting down with it is not comfortable. I will continue to wear it and hopefully get used to it. Thanks ANR for the top notch holster.

  64. Shannon Harty (verified owner)

    I have appendix carried everything from subcompact Glocks to full size Govt model 1911’s for many years. I have a drawer full of holsters that run the gambit from epic failure to pretty good. I decided to try an ANR holster for a full size Glock 17 with a TLR-1 attached. This is not a small package, especially with the weapon light. My new ANR holster conceals this combination nicely, even under just a t-shirt and does it comfortably all day long. I am sincerely impressed. Outstanding work, ANR.

  65. Stevan N Vergara (verified owner)

    MUST BUY! I have tried a few different appendix holsters and have always found that they are either uncomfortable after awile or they dig into my leg or stomach area because of sharp pointed ends during the day. Not this one! I carry an XD40 4″ service model 10+1 with a tlr7a light attachment. I’m a 6ft 200lbs man (tall and skinny) and i do lots of squating, bending, leaning, sitting, and even climbing during the day and it is completely comfortable. This is the most comfortable holster i have worn! No extra material like the other manufacturers kick out or substandard parts. Those issues i had with the other holsters i don’t have with this one. The claw is an added extra feature i appreciate since it gives me a more natural look. On my screws i did add a bit of blue loctite as an extra measure once i got my retention set. Now the retention will be different from when you wear it and not wearing it. Its not a smooth draw like when i wear it but not so much a difference that you can not draw your firearm. Just make sure you have ahold of the holster and your firearm. I have had this one for a little over a month and wanted to make sure it would fit my life style before i blindly made a review. Forget about the other ones your looking at this is the one for sure!

  66. Jon (verified owner)

    First holster I’ve purchased for a seemingly uncommon firearm (HK P30) with a now discontinued light (APLc), but ANR has a very comprehensive option selection so I gave it a shot. Received it quickly, fits the gun like a glove, couldn’t be happier. Thanks guys.

  67. TYLER (verified owner)

    Quit reading reviews and buy the D*** Holster already! 😀 cant say enough great things about this product! Hands down the most comfortable AIWB holster i own. (Glock 19, surefire x300, RMR, Threaded Barrel) the retention adjustments are great, even to the point that I can dang near lock it inside the holster. The claw is fantastic, and allows me to wear this with a snugger fitting shirt. Does a GREAT job at pushing the grip into the body.

    Upon opening the package, I could tell and feel that this is a QUALITY piece of gear! Sweat guard isnt high at all, and the firearm actually sticks up higher than the guard, which i like because it doesnt pinch my stomach.

    Absolutely outstanding product from ANR!

  68. Tiptop112

    Great Holster!! I purchased a holster for my CZ P10C /mini 2 olight!! Fits like a glove! I will be ordering more holsters from here.

    I absolutely love this holster! It’s so comfortable to wear all day, and the claw keeps it from printing even with thinner garments.

  71. Marco

    Was looking for a good light bearing holster that wouldn’t break the bank but was also sturdy. ANR provided me with that and I love the way the holster fits perfectly. Will definitely get another holster from them if I ever change pistol.

  72. Cooney Walters (verified owner)

    So far so good! This is my 2nd IWB light bearing holster for my G30, and 1st one from ANR. This sits a little higher and is much more comfortable than the other one, for both appendix and 4 o clock carry. Seems to be quality material and very well made. Customer service is attentive, and it ships fairly quickly. Overall very happy with my purchase.

  73. Isaac (verified owner)

    I’ve always carried a revolver at the appendix or a subcompact at the 4:00 and never really found something that worked for a Compact or duty size handgun. I’m a bigger guy so appendix can be tough. That being said this holster is one of the most comfortable I’ve ever carried. I can carry my Arex Delta with the extended 17 rounder and the plight pl mini with no more effort than any other of my carry systems. The claw really pushes the grip back towards your waistband but with enough room to still be able to get a good grip. The retention is perfect and the edges of the kydex have been smoothed out so there’s no sharp bits digging into your soft bits if you catch my drift. Wish I had been less of a cheap skate earlier in my carry journey and just bought one good holster for all of my guns instead of 5 or 6 crappy ones. Maybe now I won’t feel so bad about throwing away the cardboard box full of unusable holsters that’s been sitting in my closet for years. To AnR Design, you have a customer for life!

  74. Jonathan Kerekach (verified owner)

    Definitely a great holster. I run a Agency Comp on my 19 and I got lucky and it fits perfectly. Also being a bigger guy, this holster is perfect for appendix. Absolutely love the quality, will definitely buy another

  75. John (verified owner)

    Great holster. I’ve used T.Rex arms and Stealthgearusa both in appendix carry with success, but I’ll only use ANR design from now on. They offer boltaron for a small price increase, which not many others have and it is a superior material in my opinion. Also, they have more gun/light combinations than most others do. I’ve been carrying with mine for more than a month without issue, the fit was and still is perfect, and the price was comparable to others. No reason to go anywhere else until someone reinvents the wheel.

  76. Ricardo Vega (verified owner)

    Best holsters on the market. Simple as that.

    Amazing holster. Fits comfortably and is very sturdy, the claw really pushes the grip deep into the stomach so printing is never an issue!
