IceVents® AIWB Holster Pad (T.Rex Arms Glock 19 Sidecar 2.0)
Our abdomens, no matter how many salads we eat, are simply not a great match for the hard edges and angles of a high quality appendix inside-the-waistband holster. Traditional foam and neoprene pads can blunt the edges, but they are hot and sweaty (they are used as insulation after all). This is a suboptimal outcome at best. Enter the newest member of the IceVents® family: the IceVents® AIWB Holster Pad for the T.Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0 concealed carry holster. The IceVents® AIWB Holster Pad brings our proven IceVents® technology from deployments overseas to everyday carry for the first time ever. Appendix carry has never felt this good.
IceVents® AIWB Holster Pad comes in one footprint: Glock 19 with or without Streamlight TLR-7 + Pistol Mag Attachment (the same footprint accommodates Sidecar 2.0s with or without the TLR-7).
Makes edges and pressure points distant memories
Stand-off, omnidirectional ventilation facilitates Convection (evaporative cooling)
Will not absorb/retain water, sweat
Totally permanent, IceVents® are antimicrobial at the molecular level, meaning the characteristic cannot be washed away
Hook-receptive loop backing is the same as that found on the IceVents® Aero Holster Pad (Safariland UBL), IceVents® Classic Holster Pad (True North Concepts MHA), and IceVents® Classic Hook Receptive Loop Pads (Chest Rigs, Range Belts) so additional grip or wedges can be added if desired.
The icevents AIWB was a great addition for my sidecar 2.0.
I've owned a SideCar for almost 6 months since it first launched. I realized when I'm working while bending over my stomach is getting stabbed by the holster. With the IceVents on the SideCar, the pain is gone. Granted, you would have to pay attention with the configuration of the holster since pad is meant to be used in the default spare mag configuration. But it worked out for me. Get one if you can, it's worth it.
This product may be design speficically for a T.Rex Arms AIWB, however It should work flawlessly with almost all married AIWB holsters. I put it on my Knightfall Customs Married AIWB for Glock 17.
Install was fine. I was able to use 2 of the factory drilled holes in Icevent on this holster but I did have to make my own hole on the gun side to make it work(see photos).
functionality: I have noticed it does cause the entire holster to stick out more, however, It does not protude enough to be problematic. everything fits in the belt fine.
The holster feels AMAZING. My pubic region used to feel so hot after carrying all day. I now just do not feel hot. I am excited to keep buying!
