We tried out several different Glock 27 holsters and came up with this list of the 7 best Glock 27 OWB holsters. Outside the waistband (OWB) holsters are better for a few reasons. To be specific, OWB holsters are better for their grip, re-holstering and are comfortable. They hold your gun securely to your hip.
The Glock 27 is a great handgun and it’s an amazing carry gun.
Let’s begin with our favorite OWB holster and the one we recommend.

The Eclipse IWB conversion kit is included which features the popular klipt ambi attachment. It’s easy on, easy off allows the shooter to put their holster without removing their belt. Dramatically reduces firearm “printing”; Constructed of high quality materials. With a smooth & quick draw while concealed; contoured profile to fit snug to body.

Advanced Performance Shooting Holsters “Protective Services Elite” with Magazine Pouch Combo (OWB, Black)
The Protective Services Elite holster was designed by military and law enforcement special operations veterans to suit their unique needs. They wanted a belt holster adjusted for cant that was comfortable, durable and would retain the gun no matter the conditions. They wanted a holster that rode close enough that concealment was easy, even in simple cover garments. They also wanted a holster that was fast and suitable for everyday carry, training and competition. Like everyone else we have boxes full of holsters that are great for one or two things but lacked in other areas. If you are looking for the best, then look no further.
Advance Performance Shooting designed their holsters with a forward rake/cant of approximately 15 degrees to aid in concealment. All Advanced Performance Shooting Holsters are individually engraved make, model, and date of manufacture, as well as the builder’s signature to ensure authenticity. If you are looking for the best, then look no further. At Advanced Performance Shooting, they are extremely proud to provide their customers with a truly superior product, backed up by our lifetime warranty. The Elite Combo includes a custom crafted kydex holster and one ambidextrous magazine pouch. Just like their holsters, their unique magazine pouches provide secure retention without sacrificing speed or accessibility.
The outside the waistband (OWB) is a popular alternative to carrying a larger gun inside the waistband. This holster features belt slits in a leather/kydex shell. In the back side of the holster there is a center kydex belt loop to keep the holster tight to your waist. The standard cant of this holster is set to 15 degrees providing rapid draw with maximum concealment. The OWB Holster is available in black, brown or tan leather, in left- or right-handed.
Outside the waist band (OWB) holster is perfect for concealed carry. Head Down holsters are designed with comfort and concealment in mind. They use .080 thick Kydex to ensure durability and 1 3/4″ belt loops are standard. These holsters will allow all day comfort with all day carry. All of their custom Kydex holsters are manufactured and assembled in Dallas Georgia by Vets and are ideal for OWB concealed carry.
The International combines a belt holster, belt drop offset holster, paddle holster and paddle drop offset holster into one. The modular mounting system combines the versatility of different mounting options with the superior kydex holster that Comp-Tac is known for. The International is available with three different cant options, the speed draw (straight drop), the FBI cant (grip angle forward), and the reverse/cross draw (grip angle rearward). The mounting system will accommodate 1-1/2″ up to 2″ belts.
Please note that the mounting system initially accommodates a 1-1/2″ belt width, but may be configured to accommodate up to a two-inch belt. On the belt mount there is a removable tab, once this tab has been removed, it does not reattach. On the paddle mount, the belt under-hook may be cut at the trim line, and the top portion removed to accommodate up to a 2″ belt. Sandpaper may be used to deburr the area after removal. The International is USPSA legal in certain configurations.
The Paddle Holster is Comp-Tac’s number one best-selling outside the waistband (OWB) holster and is used for both concealment and competition. In fact, it is the most popular holster in IDPA and has been used by several national IDPA champions. Their Paddle Holster is the closest (to the body) riding holster available on the market. The paddle backing allows limitless positioning on the waistband without interference from belt loops. The paddle backing curves over the belt and pants so the paddle portion actually sits inside your waistband. There are two forward-curving tabs that “grab” on to the bottom of your belt to help stabilize the holster while still inside the waistband. This model is fast and convenient to put on or remove throughout the day all while keeping the pistol securely holstered.
The Paddle Holster is available with one of two cants. One option is with a speed (straight drop) cant; this is ideal for competition use and allows for the fastest draw. Full-coverage or slide Version. A “slide” version is available for select models. This version is intended for range use only. This is an open-ended holster made to fit a series of frames. The holster will fully cover the shortest barrel length in a series; longer barrels of the same frame will stick through the bottom of the holster. Please note that some models will have embossing on the holster with logo and type of pistol it is for.
If you have a Glock 27 and are in need of an OWB holster, we recommend the first holster on this list. It’s the Blade-Tech Eclipse Ambi Holster IWB/OWB Ambidextrous.
