9 Best Ruger LCR IWB Holsters | LCR Holster (Kydex & Leather)

We tried out several different Ruger LCR holsters and came up with this list of the 9 best Ruger LCR IWB holsters. We prefer inside the waistband (IWB) holsters because they hold your gun securely, are easily concealable and highly comfortable.

The Ruger LCR is a great concealed carry weapon and it’s an amazing concealed carry gun.

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

Texas Leathercraft Left Hand – Tucker & Byrd L2 Leather Tuckable IWB Holster – Ruger LCR .357


The L-2 IWB is a very comfortable, highly concealable inside-the-waistband holster. It is a tuckable holster that features adjustable cant and ride height and runs best right over your hip pocket. Made from hand boned Hermann Oak leather, this rough-side-out holster breathes easily and holds your sidearm comfortably with a high degree of stability.

It is a simple, long lasting and sturdy. It is also lightweight so it will not make it hard to walk, run, jog, or jump! The handgun will fit comfortably and will not fall out when bending over. It should provide you years of service and will be able to tolerate all types of weather along with tough handling.

Made with the rough side of the leather facing out for the greatest degree of stability, the Royal Guard’s innovative design creates a smooth leather pocket reinforced for sturdiness and protection while also permitting unrestricted movement and easy reholstering. Combat grip accessibility, essential for speed, rounds out this most versatile of inside the pants holsters.

Once you break this holster in, it will feel like a second skin and you won’t even remember that you’re wearing it. I would highly recommend this holster to anyone who enjoys the comfort and utility of an IWB carry holster, only as long as they are willing to pay the cost.

Ruger LCR .357 Mag 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 you 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.
