CRITERION

Shown in cordovan with elephant trim.

Shown in black with elephant trim.

Our Criterion model was developed in response to customers who prefer the rake and ride height of our Nexus model but desired a metal reinforced mouth for easier one handed holstering.

The Criterion features our self closing neodymium magnetic belt loop system which has the same holding attributes as our traditional one-way snap but is much easier to align and fasten to the belt.

Other features include:

  • 100% Grade A cowhide construction, cut from the bend of the hide.
  • A full metal reinforced mouth-band to aid in safe one-handed holstering of your sidearm.
  • A protective back flap to help keep safeties and sharp edges away from your body.
  • Designed to be free from any exposed metal hardware on the body side of the holster that could come into contact with the users’ skin.
  • Approximate 25° cant on 1911 models, compared to the 18° – 20° cant of our model VM-2 for 1911.
  • The Criterion is designed to ride as low as possible in the waistband while still allowing for a full firing grip on initial hand contact.
  • As with all of our holster models, plenty of clearance is provided around the magazine release button to keep the release from being inadvertently depressed.
  • Available in either all rough side out (RSO) natural finish or smooth side out (SSO) black, cordovan, or tan.

The Criterion is currently available for 1911s, Glock and Sig P229 and P320 Carry/Compact firearms.

All prices include shipping and handling unless otherwise noted.
