We tried out several different Glock 19 holsters and came up with this list of the 8 best Glock 19 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 19 is a great handgun and it’s an amazing carry gun.
Let’s begin with our favorite Glock 19 OWB holster and the one we recommend.
The Phantom Modular Holster has become the standard by which all other holsters are judged. Copied by many but equaled by none, the Phantom Modular Holster is the first choice of armed professionals and civilians. The Phantom was designed from the outset to provide the highest possible level of concealment by being adaptable to wear with virtually any style of clothing. What makes the Phantom so unique is its ultra-thin, body-hugging pancake profile. This profile, in conjunction with their Eclipse Modular Mounting System, allows the Phantom to be worn either on the belt or inside the waistband. We construct the body of the holster from thin, high-strength kydex-t.
They chose to use a pancake-style design in order to minimize bulk and distribute the weight of the firearm over a wider area on the belt. The “outside” portion of the holster body fully enshrouds the weapon from ejection port to muzzle. The “inside” or “body-side” portion of the holster incorporates a full-length body shield. This enhances comfort and aids in re-holstering, while simultaneously protecting the controls of the pistol. All Phantoms are designed around the Eclipse Modular Mounting System, and are therefore compatible with all Eclipse Modular Accessories. Through the use of Eclipse Modular Accessories, the Phantom can be converted to one of over 20 different styles of OWB or IWB carry. The Phantom Modular Holster is compatible with non-suppressor height after mark sights.
The Ronin is the foundation of the GunfightersINC holster lineup. The Ronin embodies Gunfighters’ core principles of simplicity, ergonomics and durability in every way possible. Their base material is premium USA made .08 thickness kydex which is hand-formed against the firearm of choice resulting in unsurpassed retention characteristics, a smooth draw, and long-term durability. Every line on the holster serves to either enhance comfort, functionality or aesthetics so that it not only feels like an extension of your body, but looks like one too. Belt loops are hard riveted to the holster then painstakingly hand contoured for maximum comfort and a perfect offset. No two belt-loops are the same and no threaded fasteners are used in anything we build so there is nothing to ever come loose and fall out. Marine grade friction tape is then applied to the inside of each loop to ensure maximum stability. The end result is a single, indestructible piece of equipment you can bet your life on. They’re so confident in their gear that they back it up with an unconditional lifetime guarantee. Whatever happens, they will have your back.
The KR OWB features burnished edges for a polished look along with an embossed Carroll Shelby logo. They are the only holster manufacturer authorized to emboss the Shelby Logo on the gun holsters.

The open Kydex front makes re-holstering fast and easy. The leather straps allow for a greater flexibility of movement.

The KR OWB is designed for ultimate grip while also allowing a quick, smooth draw. The leather back contributes to this because it helps press the weapon tightly into the kydex front. All of their holsters are custom molder for the perfect fit. It snaps easily on and off of your belt.
