The Apollo - Appendix IWB Holster


Product Description

**THIS IS A CUSTOM PRODUCT and is subject to an estimated lead time of approximately 20-30 days. Please note that our estimated lead time is an ESTIMATE, and may not always be exact. If a delay is present for custom orders placed during specific time periods, a notice will be posted on the homepage of our website - www.alphaconceal.com.**


In Greek mythology, Apollo is one of the most important and complex Olympian Gods. He is recognized as the god of truth and prophecy, amongst many other things.

The Apollo is our Appendix Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster, and is so named because of its straightforward design - it takes all the guesswork out of carrying in the appendix position. 


  • The Apollo is designed to be worn in the 12 to 2 o'clock position, although it will function the same in any position inside the waistband - the holster clips onto your belt and is worn inside your pants.
  • This holster is ideal for carrying concealed in the appendix position.

About This Holster

If you're the type of person who mainly carries in the appendix position, and you're looking for an affordable, basic option that performs well, this is the holster for you. It comes standard with all the features necessary for carrying in that position: a slim design to prevent excess bulk, smooth rounded edges for added comfort, no cant, a tuckable clip, and adjustable ride height. 

The Apollo is molded to fit a specific handgun model; your handgun will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. This holster does not accommodate any weapon-mounted lights, such as the TLR1 or Inforce APL. If you are running a light on your gun, you’ll want to check out the light-bearing version of The Apollo: The Cyclopes.

The Apollo comes with your choice of belt hardware: Our Appendix Clip, or a soft loop – a urethane-coated polyester with a pull-the-dot snap – to fasten the holster to your belt. The soft loop firmly secures the holster to your belt, ensuring the holster can only be removed by releasing the snap. The clip merely hooks onto your belt, and is available in two different sizes: 1.5", which most belts will fit through, or 1.75". The clip and the soft loop both come with multiple predrilled holes, which allows for adjustable ride height. We do not offer wider soft loops, as they are adjustable to size.  Both the soft loop and the appendix clip allow the customer to tuck their shirt in.

You choose which type of belt hardware you prefer during checkout.  If you're not sure which size clip you need, or which style of belt hardware suits you best, you can always head over to our Extra Hardware section to purchase the other belt hardware options.

The Apollo also comes with adjustable retention, which is controlled by the two screws that hold the clip into place. Adjusting the screws will give the customer a tighter or looser fit on their gun. 

This holster is made from one piece of Kydex, strategically molded around the gun and fastened together with quality hardware. All of the hardware comes with a lifetime guarantee, and if at any time it breaks or is lost, we will replace it at no cost to the customer.

The holster can be customized in your choice of 34 different colors or patterns. Click here to view color choices.

  1. the best

    Posted by Seth on 30th Apr 2019

    Had this holster for a couple months now and can safely say it's the best appendix holster I've ever owned. I'll be a customer for life.

  2. Worth the wait!

    Posted by Kyle McClellan on 28th Dec 2017

    I purchased this holster for my S&W 442 J-Frame and I am very pleased with the outcome. At first I was skeptical about the amount of time it would take to be made and shipped but It was well worth the wait. I strongly recommend purchasing this brand.

  3. Great Buy

    I was looking for a good holster for a decent price. I got both. Happy to buy from a PA company that is Law Enforcement friendly.

  4. Perfect

    Posted by Ejay on 5th May 2017

    This kydex IAWB was a perfect fit for my PPS. The tension was just right, the cant angle just right and the kydex designs above average. It took longer to arrive than I expected but it was worth the wait!

  5. Number 1 Appendix holster for Glocks

    Posted by Unknown on 1st May 2017

    27 years of CCW, and 22 of those years in the NYPD I have purchased dozens of holsters. There are many kydex holsters out there, each with their own spin...In my opinion the holsters are only as good as the clips that keep them attached to the carrier. Alpha holsters use the minimum amount of kydex to secure the weapon with the least amount of printing, but most importantly the apollo's belt clip is in the best position for an appendix holster. This is a super sturdy clip that will not slip out or allow the holster to twist or slide out of position. Owning 15 different manufacturers kydex holsters , all appendix, some 1 clip some 2 clips, the Alpha Apollo is the most comfortable and secure holster with the least amount of printing that I own...the search for the unicorn is over...Additionally this is not just for small pistols....I CCW Glock 26, 19 & 41..this is the only holster I will use...Highly recommend.

  6. great holster

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Apr 2017

    I'm a retired cop and carry a handgun every day. This holster is very comfortable with a 4" Springfield XDS 45. Presentation is smooth and quick. Very good kit

  7. J Frame Apollo IWB

    Posted by Erik on 21st Apr 2017

    Great Holster.. I searched for years and finally found a kydex minimalist style IWB holster for my J Frame (442). This holster makes carrying concealed in gym shorts possible.

  8. Sweet Holster

    Posted by Dan on 20th Apr 2017

    Fits nicely inside waistband and also has option to carry higher or lower which is nice. Not ideal for a side carry, but if needed, will work just fine in that location as well. Gun fits perfectly. Handle is open enough that you can get your shooting grip the first time without repositioning. If I carried different models, I would get one of these for every gun I carried.

  9. great holster

    Posted by Porch Phillip III on 13th Apr 2017

    I love this holster for my Sig P320 compact. This works much better to carry concealed than the factory holster. I love it and will definitely buy from them again.

  10. Great holster but made for wrong firearm.

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Mar 2017

    Holster is great but did not fit my gun. Wrong mold was used to make holsters. Spoke with Anthony (Owner) and is rushing to make corrections. Very easy to work with and looking forward to new holster
