The Apollo - Appendix IWB Holster


Product Description

**THIS IS A CUSTOM PRODUCT and is subject to a 20-30 day lead time, which is listed on our homepage**


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 33 different colors or patterns. Click here to view color choices.

  1. Best AIWB Holster I've Ever Owned

    Posted by Chuck Davidson on 1st Mar 2017

    The Apollo is the most comfortable holster I have owned to date. The attention to detail makes wearing it and carrying in it a pleasure! My gun fits perfectly! Thanks Alpha Concealment!

  3. Favorite IWB Holster

    Posted by Lane on 12th Feb 2017

    The Apollo is much better than I was expecting. I bought this for an M&P Shield; the fit and finish are perfect. I love the adjustable retention and the belt clip. I have no issues with rubbing or anything - it's super comfortable, easy on/off, and stays where you put it.

  4. Great Holster for Revolver

    Posted by Jamie on 9th Feb 2017

    Found Alpha while looking for a revolver holster, and glad i did! Fits my S&W Bodyguard .38 like a glove, and the soft belt loop works great. The draw is smooth and quick, as is re-holstering.

  5. So glad I found this!

    Posted by Andrew W. on 6th Feb 2017

    I am new to appendix carry and was told by a coworker to check out Alpha. I am so glad I did! The apollo holster is extremely comfortable but as a newbie to the appendix position, it took a little getting used to (I'm carrying a Glock 17). As with any holster, you have to move it around until you find that sweet spot. I've seen other reviews that say it's uncomfortable, and to that I say, you should give it more time! I've never been happier or more satisfied with a purchase.

  6. not comfortable

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Feb 2017

    I bought this on recommendation of my boss.

    I was using an Alien Gear external reversed as my holster. I also ordered a Vedder concurrently. The Alpha is not as comfortable as either or as secure. I don't care for the clip - makes the holster protrude. Something about the way the bottom of the holster is molded makes it uncomfortable. Tried it for a few days and tossed it in a drawer. Rubs on my leg and crotch - tried many positions, but no relief.

    The home crafted Alien Gear is the most comfortable and I prefer the two clips. The Vedder has a great clip that secures behind the belt, so it is nearly invisible. Also the Vedder allows me to adjust the cant - as does the Alien Gear. Both are for the four inch XD, do longer - don't understand why this one is such a problem.

    Sorry, but you asked!

  7. Perfect Fit

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Jan 2017

    I was worried about the retention pressure but turned out to be perfect! I would recommend to anyone CC and to my fellow military professionals

  8. great holster for a vp9

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Dec 2016

    makes a big gun like a vp9 easy to conceal and very comfortable
    now i need one for my p320

  9. Prefect fit

    Posted by K. Book on 26th Dec 2016

    This holster fit my XD Mod2 like a glove! The adjustable retention and adjustable depth of concealment are great! It also works well IWB at 3 o'clock. Drawing is fast and re-holstering is easy, especially with the sweat shield.

  10. The best holster ever!

    Posted by Brian on 23rd Dec 2016

    This is my second holster from alpha in a year. My mother inlaw just got one as well. We both love them.. I will be buying more. Alpha I wish you had a store in my area. Thanks again and keep you the great work.
