The Vedder IWB holster is simple. The steel belt clip can be moved half an inch up or down, and by loosening a tension screw it can pivot 30 degrees. You can get a 1.5-inch belt clip (mounted) and/or a 1.75-inch belt clip.
I’ve been interested in firearms for long enough that I can remember when the first holsters made of polymer were introduced. At first they were the aberration, with the lion’s share of holsters still being made of leather or other animal hides. Today, polymer holsters are the norm, and the number of companies making excellent holsters has grown so much it is hard to keep track of them all.
Vedder Holsters (VedderHolsters.com) is a small company looking to make it big. It is a family-owned holster company in Mount Dora, Florida, that got into the business in 2012. All its products are handmade in the U.S., and Vedder is still small enough it is responsive to its customers—making all its holsters to order and shipping them within two to three business days.
While Vedder also makes magazine pouches and a thick nylon gun belt, its bread and butter is holsters. It makes inside-the-waistband and outside-the-waistband holsters for more than 250 different handgun makes and models. That right there sets the company apart. The vastness of its holster fit range would be impressive for a company the size of Galco or Safariland, but for a small family-owned company it’s almost unbelievable.
For testing I secured one of its LightTuck Kydex inside-the-waistband holsters. This is the firm’s most popular model, and Vedder makes it for just about every semiauto pistol that can be stuffed down inside your pants comfortably—and some that probably can’t, such as the Beretta 92FS and Glock 40.
