The next of the G series DeSantis Veiled Partner holsters has been announced. What’s the G series? That’s just what we’re calling their Glock-centric versions. This one, the #195, is for the Glock 19, Glock 19x, or Glock 45 version. That means the DeSantis Veiled Partner now fits the following models (with some exceptions depending on generation), with and without a red dot sight (RDS) and with or without a Streamlight TLR-7/A weapon-mounted light (WML) attached (q.v.).
- Glock 19
- Glock 23
- Glock 32
- Glock 45
- GLock 19
An Outside the WaistBand (OWB, alternately On the WaistBand) holster is just what it sounds like – a holster that rides externally to your britches. OWB can be for concealment or duty/open carry. The Veiled Partner has, as DeSantis puts it, an “exacting curvature.” They say it “fits like a second skin,” and while that’s obviously marketing-speak, it does speak to the effectiveness of the holster’s geometry vis-a-vis the ability to keep it tight against the body, comfortable, and concealed.
Almost as important as the design configuration is its potential for configuration. It is adjustable for both height and cant. This can be a plus if your geometry doesn’t lend itself to a one-angle-fits-all and one-standard-ride-height holster; though adjustments here are less pronounced than a drop-and-offset rig, for instance, the principle is the same.
Features of the DeSantis Veiled Partner include compatibility with 1.5″ and 1.75″ belt loops, adjustable tension, and the capability of accepting a pistol with red dot sight (RDS) mounted. It’s available for both right- and wrong-handed shooters, and you can have it in any color you’d like as long as you want it in black.
Note: you can modify the Veiled Partner from OWB to Inside the WaistBand (IWB) with their “cloaked partner IWB attachments,” a two-piece ambidextrous accessory kit available from DeSantis and their retailers.
