Even though I prefer IWB carry, I cannot deny the pleasure of carrying OWB with a nice kydex holster. And the 620 Concealment OWB Kydex Holster is just that. Let me preface this review by stating that my only prior experience with Outside-the-Waistband holsters was the XDs Gear Paddle Holster that comes with the Springfield Armory XDs Series pistols.
As with every holster that I have purchased or received, the first thing I did after unpacking this holster was UNLOAD my firearm and check the fitment and retention. The first thing that really stood out to me was that there was this sensationally loud “click” sound when inserting the gun into this holster that I had to recreate several times before further examining this holster.
My first thoughts were, “My XDs Gear holster never sounded like this”. (I soon after dug out the hex key that came with the XDs Gear holster and tightened the retention)
Along side the positive “click” when holstering, unholstering is smooth and requires a minimal amount of force but it is enough to make sure drawing is a deliberate action. If you have to take off running while carrying with this holster, your gun will not flop out and hit the ground.
I do believe that most will agree that, Outside-the-Waistband carry is probably the most comfortable method of on-body carry; even with the super comfortable Inside-the-Waistband holsters available today. Even while driving, this holster was comfortable. But because of tactics I usually remove the pistol from the holster before buckling up when carrying OWB.
The 620 Concealment Kydex OWB Holster lives up to its “concealment” title. Even on the first day of carrying this holster I immediately noticed the difference between it and my XDs Gear Paddle Holster. It’s slim design allows the gun to sit very close to the body, which really aids in concealment when wearing shirts that fit. Even with this there are still some shirts that will cause printing. But as I stated in the IWB vs OWB Carry article, it is minimal and a person would have to be look very closely to truly notice.
If you are looking for a Kydex OWB Holster for your Everyday Carry (EDC) or to add to your collection, at this price it is hard to beat this holster from 620 Concealment. Check them out and please let them know who sent you.
