The OWB Pancake holster is made out of black .080 Boltaron or Kydex. It’s very strong, has excellent durability, scratch resistance, and good definition. The design is approximately 50/50 split. What does that mean? Approximately 50% of the weapon is to the outside with 50% to the inside.
Although not designed as a IWB holster with a simple clip/belt loop change (available as a separate purchase) our 50/50 OWB Pancake holster can become a very comfortable IWB Holster.

The Pancake holster has all the same design characteristics as the Standard IWB. The difference is that it is not a “taco” holster. The gun is sandwiched between two pieces of .080 Kydex/Boltaron and riveted on the sides. (Maybe it should be called a sandwich holster.) Weight of the gun is distributed over 4 to 6 inches. Our pancake holster design is slightly different than most. To help with comfort and concealability the front wing is set at 35°, the back wing is set at 20°. “Wings are where the rivets go”. What this does is allows your belt to pull the back of the holster closer to your body. This is to help keep the grip from printing if you’re wearing it outside the waistband with a shirt draped over it. The gun is generally straight up and down in the holster. Small guns without lights or lasers will be tilted in the holster about 5°. Belt attachments are attached to the rivets. Depending on how many rivets are forward or back of the holster, ride height can be adjusted simply by moving the belt attachment up or down the rivets. Cant is achieved by offsetting the belt attachments. Holsters are shipped with belt attachments offset ¾ of an inch which is about 10° cant. Available left or right-handed. Belt attachments Speed Clips, Flat Loops, Infinity loops and belt loops. All available in 1.5 to 1.75 inch.
The pancake holster can also be converted into a inside the waistband holster. (IWB). All one needs to do is remove you’re outside the waistband attachments and install J hooks or struts with soft belt loops on the front side of the holster. We sell kits for that. You may also need to round some of the lower corners on your holster to aid in comfort while wearing it inside the waistband. This can be done simply by sanding. Start with 220 grit then 400.
