The Cyclopes - Light Bearing 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, Cyclopes (plural) were a primordial race of giants, each having a single eye in the middle of its forehead. The literal translation of Cyclopes is “round-eyed” or “circle-eyed.”

The Cyclopes is our Light-Bearing Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster, and is so named because of the appearance of the light when holstered – it resembles a singular, circular eye.


  • The Cyclopes is designed to be worn 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 with a weapon-mounted light or laser. It will not function without a light/laser attachment (read more below).

About This Holster

The Cyclopes is molded to fit a specific handgun model with a particular weapon-mounted light, such as a TLR-1 or Inforce APL; your handgun and light will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. Furthermore, this holster will not function properly without a light or laser attached. If you are not running a weapon-mounted light or laser on your gun, you'll need to order a non light-bearing holster such as The Apollo, The Prometheus, The Phoenix or The Minotaur.

The Cyclopes comes with your choice of belt hardware: The Standard Clip in 1.5” or 1.75", The Appendix Clip in 1.5" or 1.75", or soft loops – urethane-coated polyester with a pull-the-dot snaps – to fasten the holster to your belt. The soft loops firmly secure the holster to your belt, ensuring the holster can only be removed by releasing the snaps. Both styles of clips merely hook onto your belt. Most belts will fit through either style of 1.5-inch clip or the soft loops. 

If you're not sure which style of belt hardware suits you best, give us a call before placing your order and we'll help you decide. This holster is molded in a specific manner to accommodate the belt hardware you select.

More details about the Appendix 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 Clip


More details about the Standard Clip

  • 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
  • The clip does not allow for adjustable ride height



More Details About The Soft Loops

  • The soft loops allow 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 made of a urethane-coated polyester, and feature pull-the-dot snaps. The soft loops firmly secure the holster to your belt, ensuring the holster can only be removed by releasing the snaps. 
  • The soft loops do not allow for adjustable ride height

  • The soft loops are adjustable to size, and will fit belts up to 1.75"


Regardless of the belt hardware you choose, The Cyclopes comes with adjustable retention, which is controlled by the two screws to the left of the trigger guard. 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 weapon-mounted light/laser attachment, 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 options.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that due to the amount of space necessary to accommodate a weapon-mounted light attachment, the top portion of the holster near the trigger guard will be wider than on a non-light-bearing holster. Depending on the exact dimensions of the particular weapon-mounted light, this open space is approximately 1/8" to 1/4". Please be assured that this is completely standard, and does not affect the functionality of the holster. As is the case whenever using a firearm, caution should be taken at all times to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you. 

DISCLAIMER: When ordering a light-bearing holster, customers will see a dropdown menu for handgun model, and a separate dropdown menu for weapon-mounted light/laser. Customers select the models they are using from each respective dropdown menu. 

Please note: all of our available handgun options, and weapon-mounted light/laser options, are listed in each dropdown menu. This DOES NOT mean that every option from one dropdown menu is compatible with every option from another dropdown menu. NOT ALL FIREARM AND LIGHT/LASER COMBINATIONS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH ONE ANOTHER. Please be sure to check the manufacturer information provided by the manufacturer of both your firearm and light/laser to ensure compatibility. If the light/laser is not designed for the firearm you select, a holster cannot be made for it. If you're unsure about compatibility, please contact us before placing an order.

  1. love the cant

    Posted by Maxi on 16th May 2019

    I really like that you have the option to cant this holster. I went with the 15 degree cant and carry it on my hip and the gun disappears.

  2. cyclops light bearing holster is amazing!!

    Posted by Ran Perry on 30th Mar 2017

    I bought this holster for my sig p320. I've never had a light bearing weapon before and finding a holster for my cituation was proving difficult until I found alpha concealment. The reason is I must have a tuckable holster due to work. So I ordered this cyclops with the tuckable appendix clip! Boy am I impressed. I'm not the best writer in the world but I'm still taking the time to do this review because this holster sure deserves it. I dont every wear the holster in the appendix position all the time, that's the great thing about it, it can be worn in any position. The wait time was a little long, but well worth it.

  3. Amazing Product

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Mar 2017

    I was given a lead time of about 4 weeks, and within those 4 weeks was delivered a light-bearing holster custom made to fit my lock 19 and tlr-1 and it is perfect. The fit and finish is on point!

  4. very good purchase, need differant ones for other guns

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Feb 2017

    Only wish lead time was shorter

  7. Baby Glock with TLR -6

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Jan 2017

    Excellent IWB Holster for my Glock 26 with TLR-6. Comfortable with a snug hold on the Glock. Particularly like the wide single belt clip. Highly recommended.

  8. High quality and well thought out.

    Posted by Tom on 23rd Dec 2016

    High quality kydex holster fits my Gen 4 G19 perfectly no extra material, all edges trimmed and finished right to the edge of the pistol. Holster is laid out for the future with room for suppressor sights, red dot cut out, and open bottom ideal for a threaded or compensated Barrel. Kryptek pattern is flawless no breaks in pattern. Optional 15 degree cant is ideal for tucking extended mags up into your side and limiting the print. Additionally Alpha has a great responsive team who rectified my error quickly without delaying production.

  9. I wont shop anywhere else

    Posted by Ryan-TN on 16th Dec 2016

    I have used other holster companies in the past, but their quality and service isn't nearly as good as what I received from Alpha Concealment. This is my sixth product from AC and I couldn't be happier.

    I received the cyclops for a Sig P320 with an inforce light with soft loops. This is a high quality holster that will last forever

    Thanks Alpha!

  10. Shield with TLR6 - just FANTATSTIC!

    Posted by RL Breton on 20th Nov 2016

    I'll be brief - super confortable and super-stable platform for my M&P Shield 9mm with a TLR6. I chose to go with a clight cant and soft loops and it's just friggin' FANTASTIC @ the 3-4 o'clock position - highly recommended!
