So I was looking for a Kydex IWB Holster for my first firearm purchase a VP9, I was originally looking for something that had one clip and would like to have had it offset the frame of the firearm, it didn't have to be offset but this was a plus. I think most manufacturers don't do the single offset clip for regular IWB because it may be a bit weaker. It also has to be small, I need to be able to take it off when I get to work and put it back on when I leave.

My decision was coming down to the following manufacturers:
Custom Gun Holsters - Zorn Holsters
Garrett Holsters (Waiting for this guy to arrive)
Custom Kydex Holsters | Concealed Carry IWB Gun Holster
https://www.reigntactical.com/
Kydex Holsters | IWB Holsters, AIWB Holsters, Competition Holsters, Mounted Holsters
Vedder Holsters- America's Most Comfortable Concealed Carry Holsters
Custom Kydex Gun Holsters | Alpha Concealment Systems
HOME
ANR Design Kydex Holsters – Custom KYDEX Holsters, your holster, your options your way. Rush Kydex shipping available

Zorn won out because they could ship the same day with 2 day shipping for an extra $40 on certain models, and the universal Elite Nylon holster didn't satisfy any of my safety concerns.

I ended ordering the Skinny Rig,

They offer it with 4 Belt Mount Options: A Soft Loop (Ride and Cant), Ride Clip, Cant Clip, and Utiliclip. I ordered it with the first three to see what I liked the best.

I also ordered it with their "Skinny Wing"
The Skinny Wing is a small removable plastic wing from the belt mount that can help to pull the grip of the firearm into the body for additional concealment. Very effective with full sized firearms.

Comes with all necessary hardware to mount the clip without the wing if desired.

Delivery Time
Expected: 2 Days
Reality: 2 Days, ordered at 10AM

Price: 55 and up

Full Sweat Guard actually covers the Whole Frame? Yes

Trigger Guard Is Fully Covered? Yes and No, I think VP9 and other paddle style mag releases may need a small relief cut. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Warranty: Just on Manufacturing Defects

Adjustable Retention? Yes 2 Phillips Head Screws.

Comfort: No Jabbing or sharp edges.

Wing Effectiveness: Keeps it close to the body but probably not as close as a dedicated arm on some larger models

Fit and Finish: No Obvious Finish issues.

Ease of Fastening/Removal: On a scale of 1 - 10, if the Elite were a 10 I would rate this a 5

Where are you wearing this? The wing will help most from 12-2 o’clock probably.

Looks like a new nice setup.

I was wearing it at the 4 O'Clock and went to the Canted Set Up, I ordered one for my G43 and I'm using the wing on that. They recommend appendix carry with that setup, but it works any way you want it to. I'm gonna post my review of the Garret Holster but it is a bit more bulky and sits lower (Less comfortable when driving). The advantage to the Zorn is how fast you can get it. Also the beltless clip is pretty nifty.
