Different situations require varying holster placement and design. For example, there are times you need an extremely streamlined, minimalistic design. Maybe you need a sleeker profile and less likelihood of printing due to your clothing choices. Or, perhaps you want to cut as much weight as possible off your carry setup. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking for a small, functional holster, the DeSantis Lifeguard holster is designed for moments like this. It is made to securely hold your handgun with as minimal a footprint as possible.
The latest from DeSantis is the Lifeguard Holster which is designed to make daily carry more comfortable. This is the company’s minimalistic IWB (inside waistband) holster. It’s made to completely enclose the trigger guard, so it’s safe and secure. It is lighter-weight and sleeker overall than most holster designs on the market. The carbon fiber finish is aesthetically pleasant and durably rugged. Fitted with the company’s Tuckable C-Clip, this holster allows the greatest level of concealment possible. Also, the Lifeguard Claw is available as an additional accessory.

Models are available for guns either with or without red dot sights. This is a versatile holster that leaves whether or not you mount a red dot to your gun up to you. If you decide to take the red dot off and run iron sights, the holster will still function as before.
The Lifeguard holster covers the trigger and underside of the frame while leaving the upper portion of the slide open. Its design allows the user to get a full firing grip before drawing. As with any holster, make sure you pair it with a solid gun belt and spend time training with it.
MSRP for the DeSantis Holsters Lifeguard Holster is $39.99.
