Configuration costs: -

The Gladius, a term derived from Latin meaning “sword,” served as a pivotal instrument in the self-defense strategies of ancient Romans approximately 2500 years ago. Today, our innovative Gladius holster extends the legacy, offering a contemporary means for personal protection.
At the core of this design is a meticulous focus on a flex concept, allowing the holster to seamlessly bend at its midpoint. Woven with a robust flex (bungee) cord, this feature accommodates diverse body types, shapes, and sizes, addressing the nuances of daily activities such as bending, engaging in physical pursuits, driving, or sitting.
The pistol component incorporates two meticulously crafted kydex pieces, providing a customizable color palette for the front and back. However, the magazine carrier, characterized by its singular design, permits a singular color selection.
Refine the holster’s retention with precision by tightening the upper screw on the belt clip situated just below the trigger guard. In the case of a light-bearing holster, adeptly adjust the top screw on the Modwing. For the magazine carrier, the retention screw, strategically positioned between the pistol and magazine, facilitates effortless customization for heightened or reduced retention levels.
Elevate your self-defense experience with the Gladius holster—an embodiment of tradition seamlessly interwoven with contemporary innovation, presenting itself as a testament to both form and functionality in the realm of personal safety.

  1. John

    I purchased this holster and a guard ultr. I can’t express how amazing these Holsters. If you are thinking about getting one do it. Absolutely worth it.

  2. Michael F.

    I’ve received my holster in the mail today put it on and can’t even tell. I love it !!!!

  3. Aaron T.

    I've been searching for months for a AWB/IWB holster to fit the "illegitimate" G23 Gen5. I tried another company prior and specifically asked them before ordering, if their holder will fit it. Sadly, it was a NoGo. But SFH delivered! Great touch on the rubber wedge. It is very comfortable, durable, and easy to clean. I will definitely purchase from you in the future!

    Shipped fast. Very sturdy, quality build. Fits my G43X perfectly. Very comfortable as well!

  5. Kyle P.

    I am very satisfied with what I received. It fits my specs perfectly (Canik Tp9 elite sc with a light and red dot).

  6. Sean D.

    Just got my Gladius for my Canik Mete SFT, build quality is great. For a custom made order it made a pretty timely arrival As well. Retention is super tight, extra mag is tight as well, the wedge helps me conceal better , but to be honest I may take it off and see how that feels as well. Thoroughly impressed with the craftsmanship, 100% better made then the rest of my holsters. Thanks guys!

  7. Patrick B.

    The 5 star is 100% due to the young man calling to verify my order and even answering one of my inane questions beyond his initial inquiry.

  8. Jeremiah D.

    Perfect fit, great product, as comfortable as is possible

  9. Mark I.

    Recently bought a holster for my G22.5MOS. Been searching for one for a while with no luck til I discovered slim fit holsters. Glad I did. Had to heat the kydex around where my wml sits for my preferred retention but other than that I’m impressed with the hostler. Keep up the good work!

  10. John.P

    Amazing product!
    Recommend adding a wedge.

  11. Bryon

    I love my Gladius holsters! They’re comfortable and sturdy. The quality control and customer service is by far the best I’ve ever had in the firearms community! I had a few questions and they were all answered. Get one…You won’t be disappointed!

  12. Aaron. M

    I can’t express how good these holsters are. My Gladius fits my 43x like a glove and I’m certain that it will stay as my primary for a while. My brother bought from slimfit when it was smaller and the quality is just as top tier as it was then. will definitely be getting more holsters from slimfit.

  13. Zack

    First time having a holster with a mag carrier attached and I don’t think I’ll go back. Awesome product, awesome company, carry daily and I love it.

  14. Kevin A.

    James was very helpful making sure I got exactly what I wanted. Everything is great! Fit is perfect. Finish is top notch. I’m very impressed.

  15. Ivan R.

    Purchased this for my Canik TP9 Elite Sc. Love this style of holster, the rubber pad that goes between the holster & your appendix area prevents that uncomfortable pressure point contact i got from my other IWB holster.

    Looks clean, comfortable and holds my Canik and extra mag securely.
    Satisfied with my purchase and so far usage has been practical and comfortable.

  16. Ike mendez Mendez

    I love it, guy you did a great job.

  17. James Keane

    Amazing service quality product that will last with duability and perfection in mind. I wouldnt trust any other holster for ccw.

  18. Kyle Traylor

  19. Jay

    This holster is the most comfortable and light holster that I owned. I’m ordering one more after this review

  20. Ron T.

    This one is by far the best AIWB I have found yet and I have ordered many different brands.
    It looks amazing, the construction is perfect, the fit and finish is exceptional. I was called by the company due to questions they had to make sure it was made perfect.
    So not only is it a freaking amazing holster, they care about what they are making for you and want to make sure it’s exactly what you want.
    I will be buying many more from SlimFit!!!

    Love it. Perfect fit and got the color to match my custom Glock 19 Gen5

  22. Juan Gonzalez

    Until now I was a Tier1 concealed customer, let’s just say that you have a new customer I love my new Slimfit Hellcat pro with the tlr7 sub holster, keep doing a great job.

    You guys rock. !!! Best holsters and price anywhere !!! Highly recommend

  34. Matthew N.

    Carried IWB for the last 10+ years. Started AIWB with a different high dollar brand recently and was very uncomfortable. Searching for something better I came across Slimfit. The wedge design is perfect for me and comfort is great. This is my 2nd SFH. I’m trying sell of the other I bought while trying to find the right fit. Highly recommended

  35. Cory

  36. Joseph Novel

    Very well made and comfortable.

  37. Mj

    Very flexible for a holster and i love it. Less poking in my abdomen when i carried around and very comfortable while sitting down without readjusting the position is a plus.

  38. Donald Cameron

    Amazing product, fast delivery time, helped me out when I messed up the in store pickup. Can’t say anything negative about Slim Fit, their product, or customer service. Top notch quality all around. 👍

  39. Daniel M.

    I have been on the hunt for the perfect holster over the years and I am sure that I just found it. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none. I greatly appreciate a company who offers both the claw and the wedge that is durable and screws directly into the holster. I will be ordering more holsters from Slim Fit Holsters for my other pistols.

  40. Peter W.

    Great customer service, great product!!

  41. Nathaniel M.

    Amazing holster with an amazing fit! This is the first time I’ve ordered a custom holster for a specific set up and they delivered 1st try!!! Love the product!

    I’ve tried many holsters from different companies. Slimfitholsters knocks it out the park. This is the only company so far that custom makes kydex holsters without costing an arm and a neck. Customer service was exceptional and delivery time was faster than some of the big companies out there. From craftsmanship to the little details, it becomes very clear that they understand the CCW community and their needs. I’ve already bought 2 holsters and about to purchase 2 more. You will not be disappointed.

    Great Holster

  45. Sean D.

    This is my 3rd holster from slimfit. The holsters are the ONLY brand , that I can wear appendix style for 8-10 hours without removing the gun and spare mag. I will continue to buy all my holsters from slimfit. I have a box full of other brand holsters that just were not comfortable enough to wear all day long. I forget my full size pistol is even there most of the time.

  46. Robert Oden

    Best holsters in tha game.Gonna order one for my 1911 after the slide is milled.

  47. Trent Askew

  48. Andrew S.

    Fits my Glock 17 like a glove, mag carrier has great fit also. Lead time wasn’t too long at all. Very comfortable when it’s in the pants too. Quality is unmatched.

  49. Benny V.

    The best holster I’ve bought! Very good quality and it shows. SlimFit would be the only holster for all my tools. Thanks SlimFitHolsters.

  50. Devon Dunn

  51. Kaylin G.

  52. Barry S.

    Hands down, the best holster I’ve ever owned. Fit and finish is outstanding and it rides like a dream.

    The comfort of this rig is amazing!! This is the way concealed carry should be!! Thank you!!

  53. Louis

  56. Nestor Morales

    I haven’t wore it yet but my Glock 45 has it it’s smooth like butter.

  57. charles b.

    Very impressive work. Comfortable to wear. After all the money spent on holsters over the years I wish I had found slim fit sooner!

  58. Josh Buzzell

  59. Jason

    From the way the holster fits to how comfortable it is while sitting, even in the car is just amazing. I’ve had a lot of holsters and tbh none of them are as comfortable as the Slimfit Gladius. The draw is amazing and smooth and of course the holster still holds my weapon in securely. Thank you guys so much. The time it takes till you receive your holster is a tad of a wait but it is well worth it I’ll tell you that. Don’t sleep on these guys, they have an amazing product.

  60. Devon D

    I love my holsters I’m going to say it again I love my holsters they are so comfortable and me with high quality kydex I had to get 3 of them and more to come you guys do such a great job keep up the good work

    Knocked it out of the park again with this one. Great quality as always. So sturdy and comfortable. I have a ton of holsters and I always wind up using Slimfit Holsters.

  71. Carlos Rivera

    Slim Fit Gladius holster , Excellent holster ,perfect fit ,very confortable ,all as requested .

  72. Michael

    The holsters are the top of the line. SFH does a really nice job with everything being custom to your gun. Most importantly, your draw strong will not change. Keep uo the GREAT WORK!!!

  73. David E Torres

    Great holster, well constructed and turnaround time was acceptable. Unfortunately I goofed up my light. Turns out I have a XC2 and thought it was an XC1. So my Glock 19 doesn’t fit. That’s my fault. At least I can use it without the light.

  74. Ahmed E.

    It is always risky when you purchase something custom online, so i was skeptical going into this and i was hoping/wishing that the chance I took would pay off.
    AND IT DID!!!
    Love this Gladius Holster, been wearing since it came. My carry fits in it snug. Made the minor tightening adjustments needed and i wear it everywhere. I already recommend tou to a few of my friends and i am working on getting holsters for my Sigs.
    Outstanding work! And Thank you

  75. Miguel Cruz
