The Ultimate in Comfort and Security.
The Professional IWB Holster by N8 Tactical.

Firearm-Specific Polycarbonate Pocket

Whether you’re carrying a Sig P365, S&W M&P9 Shield, Glock 19, or one of 100’s of other handguns the firearm-specific polycarbonate pocket is designed for YOUR firearm. Not only is the pocket engineered to offer a superior fit, the polycarbonate pocket is made from an incredibly durable material ensuring that your holster will last a lifetime.

3 Layer Patented Backer

When comfort counts the patented N8 Tactical backer is your go to. The backer is comprised of three crucial components married together to offer superior comfort. The durable leather surface will not mar or scratch your firearm while providing a clean and smooth surface to draw from. The middle layer of the backer features a moisture-proof neoprene core. This core not only protects your firearm from sweat and body oils but it also offers a compression cushion to eliminate the firearm from pushing into your body. Last but not least the body side of the backer features a silky smooth layer of ultra-comfortable suede. This suede is the finishing touch to the most comfortable holster backer on the market.

Secure Twist Release™ Retention System

The Secure Twist Release Retention System ensures that your firearm will stay secure enough to provide proper retention while allowing for a smooth worry free draw. The system features a small modification to the pocket that secures your firearm, while being easily released with a minor twist of the wrist.

Patent Pending LockDown Clip and Adjustable Cant

Our patent pending Lockdown Clip gives you the flexibility to achieve your desired cant angle easily. You simply loosen the screw, adjust your clip to the desired angle, and re-tighten the screw, its simple! The teeth on the back of the injection molded clip will align with the teeth on the adapter ring to lock the clip into place and ensure limited mobility.

Two Week, Try It Free Guarantee

The Professional IWB Holster by N8 Tactical features a “Two Week, Try It Free Guarantee”. If for any reason you are unhappy with your holster within the first two weeks of receiving it, N8 Tactical will buy it back (minus shipping and handling).

    I was disappointed as this is not the.n82 tactical holster construction I was used too.

    The one saving grace is that when worn with a good EDC belt the weapon is locked into place. It’s nice knowing its not going anywhere. It is. It hard at all to learn the technique to draw. Bwey nice and smooth. Again very difficult to get thumb behind weapon. That is because materials.have.been changed to reduce costs. That’s wally unfortunate

    The internal layer has been thinned so it’s hard to get your thumb in behind weapon. The outer layer is stiffer and not as plush as it used to be. The piping around the edge is gone. The unfinished edge needs to be chamfered at least to make it comfortable
    This holster needs to be rolled and twisted to ge it to be anywhere near the comfort of original n82.
    It is a credit to original design that these holsters are still comfortable.
    Please don’t cut anymore corners. Go back to original materials and construction that made n82 such a great holster.

      Thank you for the feedback, the materials we are using did not change after purchasing the company in 2020. We are looking at bringing the piping back and should see that soon.

    Most comfortable holster I’ve ever worn. A friend told me he’d slept while wearing it because he forgot he had it on. I didn’t believe him at first but I do now. This is my new favorite holster. I wore it all day yesterday while moving furniture, working on a four wheeler, and lounging on the couch. Very comfortable.

  3. Bruce R (verified owner)

    I bought this holster for my P365.
    It is very comfortable and very secure, it is definitely an all day holster. The twist release retention does take some time and effort to get use to but I contribute this to the size of the gun not the holster design. The small grip of the P365 does not offer me enough area to securely grip and twist the gun. It is getting easier as the leather breaks in though. I don’t think I would have any issues with a larger frame pistol.

    In over five years, I can count on one hand the number of days that I have NOT worn an N82 Professional holster. I purchased this product due to dissatisfaction with the comfort of, and pistol retention ability of products from other mainstream holster manufacturers.

    Living on a farm, on any given day I may be crawling under a tractor, climbing all over equipment, dealing with animals shoving me around or chasing them across a pasture – you name it and my holsters have experienced it. The comfort of the N82 Professional holster is a quantum leap better than anything else that I’ve ever used. Plus – unlike other holsters – I’ve never had my pistol pop out unintentionally.

    This is a great product and I highly recommend it. In my opinion, it is the best concealed carry holster available for full sized firearms – bar none.

    I’ve had the professional for over five years now for my P938 and when I say there’s no other holster on the market for me- I mean it- there’s no alternative to my N82 pro IWB holster. It fits into every pair of pants I wear, it never allows the beaver tail of my gun to wear on my extra stomach fat, and it’s easy to miss- even when people are hugging me at church.

    Hands down the best holster in the game.

  6. Jerrick (verified owner)

    After trying multiple “name brand” IWB holsters, this is by far the most comfortable holster made. No more tucking in undershirts to prevent rubbing from the grip and it sits perfect – not too high or too low. The twist draw takes sometime to get used to and after getting it down it feels natural.

  7. Robin Oury (verified owner)

    I have this holster for my P938 and was so happy I got it for a 1911 too. Carry a 1911 compact and it’s quite comfortable.
    Great holster IMHO, highly recommended.

  8. Wyman

    by far hands down the most comfortable. I’ve had 2. My PT111 is great, had it for at least 3 years. Please make it for red dot. bought one for my sig 320 but it wont fit with my red dot. It needs to fit the best guns.

  9. Eric Trax

    I’ve had the professional for a couple of years and wear almost daily with my M&P Shield. I went through a few other before I tried this. It is the most comfortable holster I’ve found. two years in I caught the belt clip on a chair and it broke off. One email in asking if I could buy a replacement, and they said they would send for free. Great customer service, and great holster.

    Will not be needing the “Two Week, Try It Free Guarantee”. I love this holster and will not be returning it. I’ve been looking for the perfect IWB holster and I’ve finally found it. No more gun digging into my side or rubbing sore spots. I can’t even tell I’m wearing it most of the time.

  11. Leonard Sands (verified owner)

    Being left handed I am usually at a disadvantage in getting exactly what I want and often have to compromise. I carry IWB every day all day regardless of where I am, and that includes at home. Much of the time I have to work around the rubbing discomfort of my grip directly against my skin. I saw the original N82 holsters and loved the concept but they were not available in left hand. Finally, my final carry holsters have arrived. I bought them for 2 of my Sig carry guns. The first one I received was for my P320 RXP X-Comp with a red dot. The exact fitment was not available but I took a chance and with little work with a dremel, I modified another similar holster and have a great fit. I just received my P365 professional holster and it’s a definite WOW and well worth waiting for.
    I can wear a T-shirt outside and the holster directly against my skin is perfectly comfortable for all day wear.
    Took a little time and training to get my draw back down to a sub 1.5 sec to first shot on target with a cover garment. The hardest part was getting used to getting that thumb down between the slide and the leather thus generating a natural twist to release the gun from retention. Once you get used to it, there is a good feeling knowing that the gun will never just pop out of the holster during any activity. I’ve had the P320 holster for 2 months and trained with it so it was really easy going to the P365.
    The quality of the holster is first class as is their customer service and communication. As a hard core carry person, I would highly recommend their Professional Holster to my friends.

    I can safely say im now a beleiver and fanboy of  N82 holster systems. By FAR the most comfortable holster ive ever used.  I don’t see why more people aren’t raving about you. Blows my alien gear and sticky holster both out of the water. Ill definitely be shopping with y’all in the future! Love the holster retention and ease of cant adjustment as well.

  13. Ty (verified owner)

    New owners now but the same great service and product quality. And the prices are actually lower. I’ve bought close to a dozen N82 holsters over the years. I ordered one of the new OT2’s from here after Crossbreed purchased N82 Tactical. It didn’t work out for me as well as the Professional models have but true to their word they let me return it. I immediately ordered a Professional and they waived the shipping because I was returning the OT2 at my expense. Very fair.
    Both products were of the same high quality that I’ve come to expect over the years that I’ve been buying these holsters. And as always they are the most comfortable holsters I have ever owned. Thank you Crossbreed for meeting the high bar that N82 Tactical set for you. And congratulations on a great acquisition.

    Ordered this for my Sig P365. Absolutely the best, most comfortable IWB holster on the market. I have tried many others, including some custom ones and this N82 professional is head and shoulders above any i have tried. Buy this holster without any reservations. You won’t be disappointed!

  15. Chuck

    Had this holster for almost a decade. Still as comfortable as it was the first day I had it. No question is the one I return to when I buy a new sidearm.

  16. Stone N.

    I’ve had this holster for my XDS for years now and had no issues, till a couple weeks ago my clip got snagged or something and snapped off, I emails N82 and got no questions asked, they said we will send you one ASAP and asked for my info. It was not long before I got a shipping confirmation. It was a absolute pleasure dealing with them. I was thinking about looking at other holsters when the clip broke but after my dealings with them I’m a customer for life.

  17. Archie

    I love this holster type. I have the 3″-3.5″ Barrel one of these. If you have to crawl on your back from the front bumper to the back axle on a Freightliner your carry will stay in it. Unlike some holsters that seem to require that you stand straight up for them to stay in it. I do not have time to be trying to stuff my carry back in a holster under a truck. This is the holster type for me, I hope you folks keep making them.

  18. David Shute

    I’ve had my Professional N82 for 3 years now, it is the most comfortable holster I have. To that point it is the only holster I wear. I recommend this holster to anyone that has a drawer full of holster’s that just weren’t “comfortable enough”. Now that they have been bought out by MTC Holsters LCC, the price has come down a little. Lets just hope the quality of product doesn’t come down a little!

  19. Ray
