The Prometheus - Standard IWB Holster


Product Description

**THIS IS A CUSTOM PRODUCT and is subject to an estimated lead time of approximately 20-30 days.

In Greek mythology, Prometheus made the first man from clay, and gave mankind the gift of fire.  

The Prometheus is our Standard Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster, and is so named because it's the holster that started everything; it's the very first holster we ever designed, and it's still one of our best options.


  • The Prometheus is designed to be worn in the 3 to 4 o’clock position, although it will function well 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 on your hip or small or back.

About This Holster

If you're the type of person who mainly carries on your hip or in the small of back, 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 concealed carry: a slim design to prevent excess bulk, smooth rounded edges for added comfort and the customer's choice of cant (no cant, 15 or 30 degrees).

The Prometheus 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 Prometheus: The Cyclopes.

The Prometheus comes with your choice of belt hardware: Our Standard 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". We do not offer wider soft loops, as they are adjustable to size.

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 Prometheus 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.

  6. first iwb holster

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Feb 2017

    This is my first in waist band holster, and I'm very pleased with it. It holds my weapon securely and covers the trigger and safety fully, so there is no chance of an accidental misfire. There is some imprinting, but I expected that, being a bigger guy and not wearing baggy clothing. However I'm known to carry a number of items on my belt, so one more imprint goes entirely unnoticed. I have a 30 degree cant, and can still position it as though it had a zero degree cant, making it easier to conceal with my belt line, and easy to draw when turned to the full 30 degrees. All in all a very worth while investment, and being kydex, I expect it to be a lasting one too.

  7. Great holster for my G42

    Posted by Jamie on 9th Feb 2017

    Great fit for my G42. Comfortable on long carry days and the clip is very concealable. Smooth draw and re-holster. Well built.
