  1. Perfect!

    Posted by Billy Pierce on 10th Aug 2017

    This LAG Defender is the most comfortable, well built holsters I have ever worn. Everything about the holster is perfect. My only niche is OWB loops are very tight with a quality thick belt but then again that is also why it holds the gun so tight for concealment. A+ product. I will be buying more soon.

  2. Love it.

    The holster is very solid and well made. The 10 degree cant is perfect. It is very concealable and comfortable. Thank you and I assure you I will be a repeat customer.

  3. Double duty for concealment!

    I have 4 Glocks (19, 26, 43 x 2) and I now have LAG Defenders for all. IWB or OWB, one holster does both. Thin and secure retention. No better value that I have found.

  4. Jack of all Trades Master of None.

    I carry a full size 1911 with a few modifications for competition. I bought this holster for two main reasons. The first being I modified my magizine release with an oversized extended button and my old leather IWB did not cover the release so it rubbed into my side all day. The second Reason is I needed a new OWB for my competitions.

    When I ordered the holster I told LAG my exact modifications (brand and part names) and I specifically asked them to competely cover the magazine release. They covered about 80% percent of it. It is worlds better than my old leather but still rubbs me occasionally. Mounting the holster OWB it sits very close and fairly high on the belt (even on its lowest adjustable setting). As a competition holster I can work with or modify the heigth but i wish they offered some spacers and longer screws to get the pistol off my body to get a faster grip.

    In my opinion this is a concealable OWB holster with the option of IWB clips. It is not designed to be an IWB holster. One reason i say this is because when im wearing it IWB at the 3 o clock position it is almost impossible to get my wallet out of my back pocket.

    Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and the customer service of LAG tactical but this is not a "end all be all" holster.

  5. Feels good

    Posted by LeftyJay on 6th Jul 2017

    The product just feels solid, Beautifully holds my !911
    Comfortable, well engineered. All your guns should be held by a LAG

  6. Well made

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Jun 2017

    I've purchased several kydex holsters of various brands over the years and so far no one has beaten the cost, quality, and production time of LAG. Very happy with the Defender holsters I've gotten from them

  7. The best fitting lightwieght holsters on the market,

    Posted by Nicho III on 25th Jun 2017

    I purchases the defender for my Kimber Pro Raptor And the fit if the gun and carry is so amazing. The holster workmanship is superurb!!! The Holster looks and fits so perfect - with the option for IWB or OWB, I love it, I also ordered a Warrior V2 for my light bearing TRP 1911 and also the best. LAG has great and friendly customer service and guarantees th holster fit.. Fitting all my pistols with L.A.G Holsters!!!

  8. So Happy

    Posted by straitshooter on 24th Jun 2017

    This is my second one, got it for my 5" 1911. The first was for my H&K VP9. I am a "big" guy and carrying IWB all day.
    Very comfortable, easy access and secure.
    I even went for a 18 hols golf outing (walking) and was very comfy. will get one for every gun I have

  9. you will forget you have it on.

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jun 2017

    I recently purchased the The Defender for IWB because I was not satisfied with my other IWB holster. Since all of my other holsters are LAG, I should have known better than to try the other company that has a to guarantee to be the best holster. The The Defender if so comfortable that I nearly forgot I was wearing it.
    So save yourself some time and some money and a huge headache and get the The Defender now.

  10. Buy this and you won't have a drawer full of holsters!!!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jun 2017

    I have been trying to find the perfect holster to carry my G19 IWB. I had other holsters that collapsed when trying to re-holster and didn't conceal the gun very well. This holster is amazing! Hides the gun and helps with a really fast draw. Re-holstering is a breeze.

    The craftsmanship that went into making this holster was worth the 2 week wait for a custom color! Very ridged (.80 kydex) and the customization helps to get it exactly how you need it to conceal any handgun.
