Inside the Waistband (IWB) holsters are made in a very minimalistic way and they are specially designed for concealed carry of a pistol under your clothing. Inside the Waistband holsters are designed to be carried from the inside of the trousers. The IWB inside holsters are perfect for all-day concealed wear and weapon carry.
Just like OWB (Outside the Waistband) holsters, the IWB holsters are often offered in a wide variety of versions with different lengths of sweatguards and with varying attachment mechanisms. A very popular material for both IWB and OWB holsters is kydex - a line of thermoplastic acrylic-polyvinyl chloride materials that is easy to shape and fit perfectly to the dimensions of your specific pistol or magazine. Kydex holsters provide a reliable and firm grip on the carried pistol whilst still allowing for a smooth and controlled weapon pull out.
