10 Best H&K USP IWB Holsters | USP Holster (Kydex & Leather)

We tried out several different Heckler & Koch USP IWB holsters and came up with this list of the 10 best H&K USP IWB holsters. Inside the waistband (IWB) holsters are better for a few reasons. To be specific, IWB holsters are better for their grip, re-holstering and are comfortable. They hold your gun securely to your hip.

The H&K USP is a great handgun and it’s an amazing carry gun.

Let’s begin with our favorite IWB holster and the one we recommend.

Tucker Gun Leather Answer IWB Holster


All-leather IWB holster, ultra-concealable, tuckable, comfortable and very secure. This holster is for inside the waistband which has adjustable for ride height and cant angle, slim profile. This holster features a strong belt clip that secure the holster to the belt. The body is protected from gouging sharp edges and the handgun separated from perspiration and body salts. The holster will not collapse when the handgun is drawn.
This holster features a blocked out leather design that stabilizes the handgun. This one literally features a spine on both sides of the holster; otherwise, the forward rake design would not be stabilized for concealed carry. The advantage of the inside the waistband holster is that the body of the holster does not protrude past the belt line. A long jacket or a coat is not needed to properly conceal the handgun.

H&K USP 45 IWB Hybrid Holster with Adjustable Retention Black Arch Holsters ACE-1


The ACE-1 continues to be at the top of the market after years of faithful service. The ACE-1 features an advanced backer we call the VSB, or variable stiffness backer. The VSB features an incredibly tough leather front, a polymer stiffener insert, and a comfortable, genuine suede backing. Increasing the benefits of the VSB, the polymer stiffener functions as an impermeable moisture barrier to protect your gun from corrosion, rather than allowing sweat to pass through the holster and onto the inside of the kydex shell or onto the gun directly. Further, thanks to the consistency and controllability of the polymer stiffener, it’s designed to bend exactly where you need it to most, and be supportive where it needs to be, making it amazingly comfortable.

Adding to the comfort, all of our holsters feature a full sweat guard, meaning the backer protects you from all of potentially uncomfortable protrusions of your gun, such as safety levers, and beavertails. While it protects your from discomfort, our backers are also cut to allow a full grip on your pistol when you draw. The ACE-1 now features more adjustability than ever before! With retention adjustment screws all around the holster, you can fine tune the fit and draw weight of your holster to exactly what you want. Additionally, with six different clip positioning holes, you can adjust both the angle and height the holster sits at to find the ultimate crossroads of comfort and concealability.

Comp-Tac IU Max Holster


The Infidel Ultra Max holster is an Inside the waistband kydex and leather hybrid holster designed for concealed carry. The Infidel Ultra Max is designed with cant adjustment holes to allow the user to change from a reverse cant, straight drop speed cant and FBI forward cant. The Infidel Ultra Max’s top grain cow hide leather backing is the most comfortable material to wear against your skin. It provides a soft flexible material that does not rub or pinch. The Kydex body on the Infidel Ultra Max provides a rigid material that is custom fit to each firearm and maintains its shape even with the pistol un-holstered. The smooth, low friction surface allows for a fast draw and easy one-handed re-holstering of the firearm.

The all-kydex body will not bend or stretch over time and is impervious to sweat and solvents. The Infidel Ultra Max’s kydex body is also interchangeable, allowing you to have one holster for all of your firearms. You can purchase spare bodies on the holster parts and hardware page. The Infidel Ultra Max can mount to your belt with two different mounting options; the comp-tac infidel clip or the infidel belt loops. The infidel belt clip is a nylon clip that slides quickly and easily over the belt. Infidel Belt Loops are top grain cow hide leather that provides additional security by wrapping around your belt and snapping closed.
It is not recommended to wear the infidel CTAC clip or shirt tucker strut with the Infidel Ultra Max as the different cants may cause stress on the additional struts. NOTE: The “Slide” version allows the user to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357). The Slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so that longer guns may ‘slide’ through the end of the holster.

Comp-Tac Spartan Holster – 1.5″ Black Standard Clips


Comp-Tac is pleased to offer gear made by Minotaur Holsters, a new company specializing in Kydex/leather hybrid holsters. These holsters combine the speed and one-handed reholstering capability of Kydex with the comfort of leather. The Spartan is a “meat and potatoes” economy version of the MTAC. The Spartan is tuckable, you can adjust the cant, and you can get additional Kydex half-bodies for different weapons, all like the MTAC. It’s not as pretty, and the fasteners aren’t covered, but it’ll save you a few dollars.

The Minotaur Spartan uses the same clips as the CTAC and the MTAC. Additional Kydex bodies can be ordered (Spare Minotaur Bodies) but they are NOT the same as those used on the Gladiator and MTAC holsters. This holster utilizes the same Kydex clips as seen on the Comp-Tac CTAC holster, which allow you to adjust the cant. With the clips offset from the holster body, the holster disappears when you tuck your shirt between the holster and your pants. The “Slide” version allows you to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357’s). The Slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so the excess barrel length on longer guns can “slide” through the end of the holster.

A “Full-Coverage” version can be ordered by selecting your specific gun model. Also, the Kydex half-bodies (made by Comp-Tac) are interchangeable, so you can order additional holster half-bodies to set your holster up for a different gun. Please remember they fit check every single holster with the actual make and model firearm ordered. As a result, the leather backing may show slight wear marks or scratches from the fit process.
