Who makes a good left handed appendix kydex holster for a J Frame?

Looking for something ultra slim for when maximum concealment is required.

I saw this company the other day on Instagram. I have been tossing around the idea of trying their "solo" out. I believe there is a picture of the solo sitting with a j frame on their website, I also know they have more pictures on their Instagram too, if you have an account. Here's the link:

If you are willing to go with leather check out the Deep Drop Bandit II from Bell Charter Oaks. Great concealment.

Pretty tough to find kydex for J Frames in general and I'm not sure if this fits your minimalist requirement but I've been thinking of trying one of these for mine.

They've also got the Kilo model which is tuckable.

Took a gamble and thought it might fit my 640. It does not.

The hunt continues.

Ended up getting a holster from @goodmedicine and his company, Shadow Holsters.

James made this exactly to my specs and even sent it out for me to look over/test before purchasing, as it was not his "typical" style holster.

He makes great quality stuff with fair pricing and top notch customer service. You guys should check him out!

@thedreamer124 Picture of the AIWB J frame holster specifically? I have 2 different ones from him.

Shoot me an e-mail from here and I'll reply with some pictures. I apologize for not seeing your post until now.

I know you said Kydex but ,you really should check out the Alessi deep cover for the J frame,it is in my opinion the best AIWB holster made for the J frame,very comfortable,concealable,and thanks to the talon clip used a belt is not required and you can conceal your j frame while wearing. gym shorts

Might be too late, but Mitch Rosen makes a nice j frame holster.

For future reference, the Blackhawk A.R.C is fantastic for the J-Frame.

Scroll down to see the pic of the J frame, then go to the order page. I have a handful of his holsters, and am wearing a Plus One right now.

Geaux Hard Holsters makes them. PHLster also makes a good J frame holster.

I was going to reccomend Phlster's City Special (the one on the right in the picture above). I just got one myself and I love it. I don't think that there is a left/right hand option at purchase but you should just be able to reverse the "tuck-strut" to set it up for left hand carry. I wear it at 1:00 and the J-Frame just disappears.

my my only complaint is that the snap on the loop is a real pain in the @$$ until you get used to it and get the technique down. If it came with an instruction card on use it would have saved me some time and cursing at the holster...

None of the holsters above are from PHLster, although I also recommend the PHLster City Special.

Pull the Dot Loops can be a pain at times, but once you get used to them, it's fairly quick.

Put a touch a lube on the snap. Something like Rem oil with Teflon is good since it dries but leaves some lubricity. Helps a lot.

Honestly after spending hundreds on j frame holsters I found that the best AIWB one is the cheap uncle mike's soft IWB. Very slim, keeps sweat off the gun, and very comfortable.
