    I have 2 IWB holsters from Alex and Ryan design and love them. Quality, retention and the comfort are top notch. Customer service is fantastic as well with fast response and attention to detail. Can not recommended highly enough.

  2. ZACHARY LARSON (verified owner)

    Great fit out of the box. Got the retention screws in case. Surprisingly comfortable. I may need to round the Glock 19 sweat guard a bit more. Really like how it covers trigger fully and has great “combat” grip cut. Worth the wait.

  3. Al kilpatrick (verified owner)

    I was tired of buying holster that just didn’t work so I spent a little more for a custom and I finally have one that actually fits and works properly. Best 60 bucks spent I collect guns and will use them again for my Frankenstein creations

  4. Sunny side Arms (verified owner)

    Just received my holster a week ago and already love it. Really great fit for a FNs9c and crimson trace cmr208 combo. Also, I really liked the fact that they tried to fit my original O-light option , and emailed me and let me know that it would not work. I selected a different light and had not one issue from that. Great first experience

  5. Eric (verified owner)

    Great holster. Wish it was available with soft loops, but that’s easy to change yourself

  6. Claudio (verified owner)

    Love the holster, but not a fan of $10 shipping cost. Should be free or at least $5 being that it’s light weight.

    • Alex Costa

      We’d love to lower it. USPS raises rates every year, and we also insure the full value of every package. If it gets lost, you get your money back. Flat Rate boxes are only $50.00 refund. USPS has been notorious for losing packages lately.

    Just received my first ANR holster this afternoon. It’s a light bearing IWB for my CZ P-01 SDP Custom Shop w/ TLR-1 light. Perfect fit and finish. Beautifully done and arrived well before I expected it to. Very pleased!

  8. Nick (verified owner)

    Just received this holster about a week ago or so now and I absolutely love it. Can definitely tell this holster was made with some quality parts and lots of thorough detail. Fits my gun and light combo perfectly and is the only company I’ve found that makes a holster for my gun and light combo. Love the holster guys keep up the great work.

  9. Alan Berry (verified owner)

    Just received my first ANR lightbearing IWB holster. Excellent fit and finish. Very comfortable holster and easy to adjust tension. Didn’t have to wait long from time of order until time of delivery. Would definitely purchase another and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ANR Holsters to others.

  10. David (verified owner)

    Got the ANR P80 Compact IWB light bearing with RMR cut and suppressor height sights in standard black kydex. Been test driving it a week. I have 4 other pistols, each with 2 or 3 holsters. This is one of the best fitting kydex jobs I’ve seen, arguably the best. And that says a lot considering the weapon light makes the job all the more difficult.

    The little details in the fit are all spot on. For instance, with the P80 holstered, the cut out at the bottom where the light and barrel crown end is perfectly symmetrical, where both sides of kydex hug the weapon light ring and barrel tip evenly. I’ve seen subtle fit issues with other brands where one side of the kydex sandwich is closer than the other. Quality press job. The holster locks perfectly with no jiggle and a crisp click into place, yet the weapon is easily extracted without feeling like I’m going to take my pants with it. If I had to find something to even mention as a negative, and this is me really poking around for something to say just so sound impartial, I’d mention the kydex cuts could use a slightly more uniform polishing. Maybe a hint of a rough spot around aggressive corners. Ultra nit pick though and not really a valid complaint, as it doesn’t affect functionality at all. This is a solid holster for a reasonable price. Very happy.

  11. James S (verified owner)

    Excellent quality. Nice thick well formed contacts. Fits the pistol and light perfectly. Very happy with my purchase.

  12. Joe Acosta (verified owner)

    I ordered a light bearing IWB for my new IWI Masada. Two things:

    1) I placed the order on November 19 and received it on November 26. Unbelievable!
    2) I’ve been using this holster for 4 days and can’t get over how comfortable it is. It also fits my firearm as if it were part of it. I thought after using holsters like CrossBreed and AlienGear I wouldn’t like it but I was pleasantly mistaken.

  13. Miles Plannette (verified owner)

    I ordered a light bearing IWB for my Dan Wesson Specialist with a TLR-1. ANR is one of only a handful of companies that make an IWB for this combination. My order was placed November 26 and shipped November 27 which is incredibly impressive. The holster holds the handgun securely and the draw and reinsertion is just about perfect. The fit and finish is top notch and I’ll definitely be ordering other holsters from ANR in the future.

  14. Troy Decker (verified owner)

    As always my new ANR Design holster is a great fit for my P07. These holsters are my go to for my EDC guns. I have 2 now and love both of them. Great quality and finish. Thanks guys for a great product

  15. Jon C (verified owner)

    I never ordered from ANR Designs before, but after receiving my holsters I’m definitely a fan. If I need another holster, I will likely get it from here! Great adjustable retention and nice kydex quality.
    One thing I will point out though is the claw accessory, strangely it was cheaper to buy the claw hardware separately rather than buy the Claw + IWB lightbearing holster. Huh? Basically an extra $5-10 to have someone screw the hardware together for you. ANR should look into this pricing difference..

  16. Jerry Wardrop (verified owner)

    My first holster from ANR Design. I am very happy with the purchase. Not many companies offer a holster for an FN509 MRD w/Olight Mini, and I ran across ANR while searching for it. They promptly answered my pre-sale questions via email, which is ultimately why I purchased a holster from ANR. Side note, another company that was suggested, did not reply. I received my holster within the promised shipping time. I carry between 3 and 4 o’clock position and this holster fits well, conceals well, and it is comfortable, even with the extra bulk of the light and red dot sight. Before I mounted my light on my pistol, I check to see how it fit in the holster. Most holsters have no retention without the light. This holster could hold the pistol without the light. While I don’t plan to carry it that way and possibly not as secure, it is nice to know that it is able to it I was in a pinch. I assume it is an attribute to the craftsmanship and/or good design. I selected the “blood red” and was happy the appearance as well – but as my son pointed out, it is inside my belt line and not seen — looks good anyways. When I need an OWB, ANR will be at the top of the list of possibilities. I would recommend ANR to anyone looking for a good Kydex holster.

  17. lylep (verified owner)

    I own 9 ANR holsters and they are the best in the industry. There are some others that come close but I trust my life with these holsters and that’s the bottom line for me.

  18. Zach Dotson (verified owner)

    I just got my new ANR holster and absolutely love it. The fit and finish is amazing and it is really comfortable and conceals really well. The lead time was really fast and I I will definitely be ordering more ANR holsters.

  19. Jake (verified owner)

    It’s a great holster besides the fact there is little retention when the gun is in the holster. I’m afraid if I have to run with my 320 in the holster it’s going to come flying out. For normal day to day activities not including running. It’s a good holster

      Have you reached out to Customer Service before writing a review? Their job is to rectify any concerns of the customer…

  20. Dp (verified owner)

    Rather nice small design, but in the pants it’s a no go for me. Chafing, rubbing, irritation mean that this ANR design holster is useless and I am going back to a black rhino concealment holster for a p30sk with a tlr7

    Overall extremely disappointed.

    • Alex Costa

      Sorry that you’re disappointed. Carrying a gun is not easy feat. Proper garments, placement on the body, and knowing the fragility of your own skin is important. Wear undershirts, apply moleskin to the holster if you need to; heck, reach out to customer service and maybe the offset for the safety can be removed so it may be more comfortable for you.

  21. Earven S B (verified owner)

    The light bearing IWB custom built by ANR is excellent in fit and finish. Where else can you buy a custom built quality kydex holster at the value in which it is priced? I would wager, not to many places.

  22. don.sprick (verified owner)

    Purchased this for my CZ P07 with TLR7a. Fit is excellent, overall quality is superb. Delivery was quick despite the Covid panic buying rush. Will definitely order more holsters in the future.

  23. Vance Shaylor (verified owner)

    Excellent craftsmanship, perfect fit, and amazing quality! Thia will be my holster company from know on! Thanks guys!

  24. Gaelan Garrett (verified owner)

    I dig it. Happy to find a place with gun and light combo with a supreme fit. Would buy again and recommend to all… Except for Chad

  25. Isaac Valladares (verified owner)

    Honestly was not impressed got one for my fnx 9 with an apl light and aside from how high it rides there is absolutely zero retention so I’m constantly worried about my gun falling out, then it also rides really loosely even after fully tightening the retention screws all the way so it kinda wiggles around in the holster which ends up disengaging the safety so all in all for something that ended up costing me just a little under $80 would not really recommend to anyone

    • Alex Costa

      Isaac, Have you reached out to customer service with your order number as the subject? We fix any manufacturing issues. Instead of writing and grumpy review, give our customer service a shot.

  26. Richard Thomas (verified owner)

    I purchased this for a CZ sp-01 which is a heavy pistol and I was worried that I may not be able to carry it comfortably off duty. I definitely did not have to worry. I adjusted the tension properly and it has enabled me to not have to bring 2 pistols when I go to work. I can wear the sp-01 all day without worry or comfert issues. It even flexes as an appendix holster also. Easy on and off. Easy to adjust while I’m wearing it. I’ve already told friends and co-workers about this company.

  27. James Preiss

    This is the best holster I’ve ever bought. I have the physique of a hungry skeleton and I can conceal a full sized Glock with this holster with no problems. I highly recommend these holsters to anyone in the market for one.

  28. Thanva Girdpool (verified owner)

    The holster is really well made, except the retension is so so hard to be able to put the weapon in and out. I would say I have to use minimum of 3-5 lbs force to push the gun into the holster and taking it out !!

  29. Ron in Chicago (verified owner)

    Holster gets 3 stars. Ordered a custom lightbearing holster, which can be difficult. I’ve tried, so I reached out to what I THOUGHT were some better talent than myself. I got a pretty mediocre holster at best. Contacted customer service / management regarding my areas of concern, and got an insulting link to an Adam Schiff video as a response. ANR = “absolutely not respectable” by design. Hence the 1 star.

    • Alex Costa

      The person handling your customer service email no longer works here.

  30. Brian (verified owner)

    Bought this IWB holster light bearing and I love it! One of the few places I could find that makes a holster for a Glock 30S with a TLR7 in left hand.
    A Good buy, Thanks!

  31. Charles R (verified owner)

    Purchased this holster on a recommendation of a friend who swears by ANR design holsters. Glad I did.
    I ordered a light bearing IWB for my M&P 2.0 W/ TLR7A.
    Could not be happier with fit, finish and quality. Holds tight, positive click when inserting. Smooth draw. Will use ANR in the future for all holster needs.

  32. Darryl Drew (verified owner)

    3rd holster from AnR. Never disapoint! Lightbearing holster in multicam Black is sick! Thanks!

  33. Raymond Andrews (verified owner)

    I am very pleased with my outcome. I was so excited to see the finished product once it arrived and I was not let down by the looks and feel. I chose the hex cam 13 option for my black FN 509 compact and I think it looks pretty sharp if I were going to judge a person by how their gun matches their holster lol. The fit was a little right at first around the TLR 7 light and I backed off retention until the screws had little threads left to grab, which led to using a thread lock component (not an issue). After getting a good feel of the draw and how it reacts to my build, it took only a few dozen draws to wear it in perfectly. I now hear the positive “CLICK” and smooth draw with a stable holster in the waist. I only wish now that I would have payed more attention to my order and added the claw, but I’m relatively new to handguns and EDC so not too bad for my first ANR Design holster. Now all I have to do is wait for my LTC permit to arrive in the mail so I can legally use the dam thing I’m so proud of.

    Great holster, feels well constructed!

    Fits my Sig P365 XL w/ RomeoZero and TLR6 perfectly!!

  35. John G (verified owner)

    Awesome holster. Great trigger guard..Good retention with a small tweak.

  36. Jr (verified owner)

    Quality holster , a bit bulky for conceal carry with the light option , knowing what I know now I should have purchased the OWB option.

  37. Cody B

    This was my second holster from anrdesigns. Best appendix holsters out there! Quality and comfort in both my 43x and 19 w/ tlr7a holster. They conceal very well and don’t even realize you are carrying appendix. Use both the polymer and metal clip and either way you go these are my go to holsters for any day of the week 365. Would recommend to anyone looking to get one.

  38. Ivan Thurber (verified owner)

    One of the few manufacturers that had a holster available for my FN 509c, let alone having the option for optics and my light. Great fit, good retention. It could use a soft back, but I knew what I was ordering. Overall great holster!

  39. Stephen K (verified owner)

    My latest holster order continues to impress. It shipped and was delivered within a few days or initial order and it fits perfectly. Another great job!

  40. Alec (verified owner)

    My 2nd ANR IWB holster, and it won’t be my last. The holstersuper comfortable and super lightweight. I went with the OD green boltaron and the finish is awesome. I will continue to order from ANR and continue to recommend to all my friends.

  41. tomasj.gutierrez (verified owner)

    Got my holster today after drooling over these products for almost a year on instagram. I’m super happy with it. it’s light yet solid. My pistol goes in tight and comes out smooth. Drawing is easy to get used to. The belt clip fits my belts with solid retention that grips well without being a paint to get on and off. The color (coyote tan) is great and not too peanut buttery. I could go on but I think I’ll save some words for the next purchase. Oh, also couldn’t wait to go out and put my sticker on my truck window after I got home. Gotta represent. Thanks again Alex and ANR for fast shipping and a great holster.

  42. Robert (verified owner)

    Awesome holster, the fit and retention are great! I like the slim design of the holster and the Kydex at the bottom is rounded so it does not cur into my leg when wearing as an appendix carry! Super happy and I will be back for more!!

  43. Stephen (verified owner)

    Fit my Beretta 96A1 with Streamlight TLR-7 perfectly. I prefer a small of the back holder, so I got a lefty (I’m a righty) and works great for that purpose.

  44. Joshua Bailey (verified owner)

    Got this holster for my CZ P 07 with stream light TLR 7. Fit is perfect and the craftsmanship is exceptional. ANR offers outstanding products.

  45. Dean Werner (verified owner)

    I have several of the IWB mini olight bearing holsters that work great. The quality of kydex and construction is top-notch. Retention and draw are superb. The customer service is excellent as there was some confusion as to the gun-light combo I actually ordered. This was quickly resolved in one email, and I received the holster a few days later. I hope ANR continues to keep up with the multitude of gun/light combos and is able to do so at a competitive cost.

    Been holding off on reviewing this until I get could more time with it. Like most, dry fire training has now become the forefront with live-fire training just behind it (used to be the other way ’round when ammo was easier to come by and less expensive). Not a bad thing–requires more fine-tuning and attention rather than just zinging rounds downrange.
    After reading Stephen’s review (THANKS A TON Stephen!!!!), I reached out by e-mail to see if this would also fit my Beretta 96A1 but with a SureFire X300-UA. Received an answer the next day and decided to purchase. Arrived pretty quickly.
    Out of the box, the fit was pretty tight. Ended up placing extra spacers and a little longer screws to give enough room to adjust retention. Since then, haven’t had an issue with it at all and have been carrying every day. Beretta aren’t small by any means and this holster gives enough grip to keep it where I want it but not so restrictive as to delay drawing when I need it. The belt clip stays where I need it but isn’t a pain in the ass to get off which makes it nice when visiting places like courthouses or the like. I can leave my weapon holstered and just provide the whole unit and not have to worry about anyone discharging.
    Comfortable to leave on all day–only really notice it’s there when I feel the need to adjust holster location. EDC isn’t a fashion statement–it’s a way of life. Get the benefit of being armed with all the responsibility that entails, including wardrobe.
    This thing’s been in rainy weather, sun (had some good days with 100+ heat, which is f-ing rare in the PNW), dust, been rolled on, bumped against doors and walls, and have had zero issues with retention, form, shape, or function. For those of you looking to get an affordable, reliable, and quality made holster for your Beretta pistols, I highly recommend ANR Design. Great customer service by Jake in answering all of my questions. Again, huge shout-out to Stephen for sharing your experience.
    I can’t recommend enough. 🙂
