Enhancing Light-Bearing Carry: New Options Added to The Cyclopes IWB

Posted by

Here at Alpha Concealment Systems, we're always looking for new ways to enhance and improve upon our current carry solutions. That's why this month, we're excited to announce a new option on our ever-popular Cyclopes Light-Bearing IWB holster.

As of today, customers now have the option of choosing the belt hardware on this holster that will specifically suit their carry needs; we've added the ability to select a belt clip that is optimized for appendix carry, while continuing to offer the belt clip that best suits those who hip carry. We will also continue to offer soft loops. Customers will choose which style of hardware they prefer during checkout.

Not sure which style of clip is right for you? Here are some helpful facts about each style.

Soft Loops

When choosing soft loops as your belt hardware, The Cyclopes will come with 2 urethane-coated polyester loops, each equipped with a pull-the-dot snap. The soft loops firmly secure the holster to your belt, ensuring the holster can only be removed by releasing the snaps. These snaps will fit up to a 2-inch belt, but they come snapped in the 1.75" position -- the loops are adjustable to size.

  • Soft loops are optimized for any type of carry IWB, but we recommend a 0 degree cant if you plan to carry in the appendix position, and a 15 degree cant if you plan to carry in the 3-4 o'clock position
  • There are 3 options for the cant of the soft loops -- 0 degrees, 15 degrees or 30
  • The soft loops are the most secure option for fastening your holster to your belt

Standard 1.5" Clip

When choosing the standard 1.5" clip as your belt hardware, The Cyclopes will come with 1 polymer clip. Unlike the soft loops, this clip merely hooks onto your belt. Most belts will fit through this clip, however, customers can also choose to purchase a wider clip through the "Extra Hardware" section of our website. The clip can easily be swapped by removing the screws that keep it in place.

  • The clip allows for any type of carry IWB, but we recommend a 0 degree cant if you plan to carry in the appendix position, and a 15 degree cant if you plan to carry in the 3-4 o'clock position
  • There are 3 options for the cant of the clip -- 0 degrees, 15 degrees or 30
  • The clip is extremely sturdy and grabs onto your belt tightly. It does not wiggle much when affixed to your belt

1.5" Appendix Clip

When choosing the 1.5" appendix clip as your belt hardware, The Cyclopes will come with 1 polymer clip. Unlike the soft loops, and much like the standard 1.5" clip, this clip merely hooks onto your belt. Most belts will fit through this clip.

  • Clip is optimized for appendix carry, but can be worn in any carry position IWB
  • There is only 1 option for the cant of the clip -- 0 degrees
  • The clip allows for adjustable ride height
  • The clip is tuckable -- You can easily tuck your shirt in between the holster and the clip, ensuring only the clip is visible
  • The clip has a bit more "give" to it, and can be removed much quicker than the standard 1.5" clip
