The Prometheus - Standard IWB


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

    Best fitting holster I have ever found. Was made to work with custom nights that got snagged on every other holster. Love it. Will be switching all my holsters over to a Alpha

    The holster fits the gun like a glove and is comfortable to wear.

  4. 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.

  5. Great holster for my G42

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

    I am new to concealed carrying but this holster makes it so easy! It is super comfortable and I never had to worry about my gun moving around. This is a great holster!

  7. Fantastic IWB Holster

    Posted by Mike on 21st Jan 2017

    I found the holster to be comfortable and well made. I highly recommend soft belt loops over the belt clip. Great product overall.

  9. Flawless Workmanship

    I want to start by saying I've purchased quite a few holsters from the many Kydex companies out there over the last few years. Enter Alpha Concealment: I opted for the black carbon fiber, with a 15 degree cant since I carry in the 3:00-4:00 postition. This does a great job in "tilting" the grip of my Glock 23 forward just enough to prevent printing. As far as the carbon fiber, it's absolutely flawless. The attention to detail on the polishing of all edges and corners is fantastic. Retention is nice and snug, just as I had hoped. This is obvisously the biggest concern for most gun owners, but the two adjustable screws should keep it snug with very little maintenance. Like any holster, I expect to tighten them as I carry the holster and it breaks in just a little. But the range of adjustment looks to be plenty enough to maintain proper retention over the life of the holster. Alpha utilizes the same single clip design that's become so popular these days. It grabs hold nicely onto your belt and doesn't snag or come loose with movement. Equally as impressive was the communication I received from their customer service team. I had reached out and asked a few questions before I made the purchase and they were quick to respond, and helpful in getting the details right. I never thought I would replace my hybrid type leather/Kydex EDC rig, as leather is very comfortable next to the skin. But this carbon fiber is every bit as comfortable against the skin, but it creates a substantially smaller footprint, which was a game changer for me - especially for the brutally humid summers we're used to here in the South. A big thanks to the folks at Alpha Concealment. This is a company I would highly recommend, and I will most certainly be a repeat customer. Keep up the good work.

  10. Great Holster!!!

    Ordered the Prometheus holster for my Glock 43 in black carbon fiber with 15 degree can't. The holster fits my gun perfectly and looks great. I definitely recommend alpha concealment.
