IceVents AIWB Holster Pad

Making AIWB Comfortable…for the first time.

PLEASE NOTE: We're discontinuing ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad, with our final order period closing Monday 19FEB 2024, 2359 EST. Orders will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, with shipping expected within 8-12 weeks, as each pad is made to order. We aim to ship sooner and appreciate your understanding during this final run.  All sales are final. No returns or exchanges.

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 (AIWB) 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 / 43X / 45 / 48 with or without Streamlight TLR-7 + Pistol Mag or Tourniquet Attachment, Right Hand Draw.

[ FAQ ]

Q: Is your ICEVENTS® material hard and rigid?

A: Not at all. Click here to watch a YouTube Short that shows how ICEVENTS® achieve a magical balance of soft, and structural.

Q: Why did you only make the ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster pad for the T.Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0 for Glock 19 / 43X / 45 / 48 + Reload, with or without Streamlight TLR-7?
A: Scale.

ICEVENTS® are an ultra-premium technology that requires a certain scale to manufacture. T.Rex Arms and the Glock 19 / 43X / 45 / 48 + Reload with or without Streamlight TLR-7 have the scale necessary for ICEVENTS® production. The Glock 19 is the VAST majority of the handgun market and it isn’t even close, with 43X, 45 and 48 also matching the same footprint.

Below are the Sidecar 2.0 fits we have confirmed as
ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad Compatible. These fits will work with both the Pistol mag attachment and Tourniquet attachment for the Sidecar 2.0:

Glock 45 MOS / Optic Equipped with Streamlight TLR-7

Glock 48 MOS / Optic Equipped

Glock 48 MOS / Optic Equipped with Streamlight TLR-7

Please note:
This list is not exhaustive and will be added to as we confirm more fits.

Q: Will this fit the OG 1.0 T.Rex Arms Sidecar?

A: Unknown. T.Rex Arms only sent us Sidecar 2.0 holsters in the Glock 19 / 43x / 45 / 48 + Reload, with and without Streamlight TLR-7 footprint since these are their two best selling models (or at least they were when they sent us the holsters for this project in 4Q23).

Q: Will you make these for older T.Rex Arms holsters?
A: Possibly. Depends on demand. 

Q: Doesn’t an ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad reduce the modularity of the Sidecar 2.0 since it adds a step to switching out attachments?

A: Yes, adding an ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad to your T.Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0 will add a minute or two to switching out attachments. This makes the price of admission for comfort minimal. An important thing to remember about modularity is that like MOLLE, we mostly (not always) use it to “set and forget.” It is a tool we use to customize our gear to our personal preferences. However, we rarely use modularity to change formats with any frequency. Frequent changes to kit is problematic to developing strong muscle memory.

Q: Will you make this for Glock 17s?
A: Possibly, depends on demand. 

Q: Will you make this for M18s?
A: When the reliability and quality control issues are addressed, then possibly.

Q: Will you make this for Sig Sauer P320 w/x300 or P365?
A: Possibly for Sig P365 line, but it will depend on demand and volume as reported to us by T.Rex Arms.

Q: Can this fit a T.Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0 without the spare mag and just the belt clip?
A: No. Our mounting system needs the screws on both sides to mount securely. That said, we did make the other side out of hook-receptive loop, so you can try an adhesive-backed Velcro hack should you so desire, but we didn’t design it that way and have never tried it ourselves. 

Q: Will you make this for LAS Concealment Ronin 3.0s, Tier 1 Concealed, QVO Tactical or any other AIWB holster?
A: If another company contacts us and it makes business sense, sure. For now, the ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad for the T.Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0 is the only ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad we make.

Q: Is the ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad compatible with LAS Concealment Ronin 3.0s, Tier 1 Concealed, or QVO Tactical?

A: We designed the ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad specifically for the T.Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0. We have not tried to fit it to any other holster, but there is a reasonable probability it could fit holsters from other manufacturers if the dimensions and screw placement match that of the Sidecar 2.0 in Glock 19 + Reload footprint. 

Q: Will it fit a wedge?
A: Yes. While it depends on the dims of your specific wedge, there is 0.5” of clearance to add wedge if you’d like. It can be secured using the hook-receptive loop backing on the ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad.

Q: Will you make the ICEVENTS® AIWB Holster Pad in Left Hand Draw?

A: We do not have plans to make a Left Hand Draw version at this time. Our ICEVENTS® technology is extremely expensive to manufacture in both raw materials and tooling, especially since we make all of our tooling right here in America (we actually make a good bit of the tooling ourselves, in-house). Unfortunately, the market isn't large enough to support this level of production tooling cost.

Q: Will this fit with the T-Rex Arms Sidecar 2.0 Tourniquet Attachment?
A: Yes. Sample setup image and demo video below:

Perfect Fit

I bought anticipating that I would need to modify for my setup. To my surprise, it fit perfectly! Running a Sig 365 XMACRO with Streamlight TLR7 on a T.Rex Sidecar. So much added comfort by adding.

Timmy Boyd (Las Vegas, US)
Icevents Holster Pad

The Holster Pad is the key to a comfortable IWB experience.. I have 2 pads now and about to order a 3rd one for another holster. For the installation of the pad to my holster I use Velcro for an easier install and works great on any IWB holster no matter the hole pattern since I dont use the holes. Best product for comfort..5 Stars !

Clay Braidic (Mentor, US)
It worked great, unfortunately too thick

The cooling and comfort was great; however, the thickness of the pad and the way the pad extended up near where you grip the gun caused it to be harder to draw and caused it to be less convenient to take the holster system in and out of your waistband. If it was just a narrow pad that adhered to the pressure points only I’d have liked it more. I took it off but I liked the idea.

Ethan A. (Riverside, US)
This is life changing

I actually use this product on my shield 9 but I am planning on getting another one for my Glock 19 and adding a TLR7 to my firearm. I can comfortably carry apendix for at least 14 hours straight and I love it. I hope this product continues to advance the industry and concealed carry. PLEASE CONTINUE TO MANUFACTURE THESE PRODUCTS!

Austin Smith (Ellensburg, US)
Awsome Product

Bought the Ice Vent for my 19x holster. Works great with a mag option, as well as the TQ attachment with no modifications. Hope they make it for the Sig P365xl in the future.

Jake Rose (Garland, US)
A handy and comfortable add-on to my EDC

Installation was incredibly easy, even though it wasn't meant for my setup. I run a 365XL with a tourniquet holder and the only change I had to make was to run a ziptie through the hole on the left side of the pad and through the top hole of the tourniquet holder. It is incredibly comfortable and most importantly, it has stopped a frequent issue I've had with rust building up on my mag release. A great product that protects my gun and also allows me to conceal it with even more comfort!

Good product needs work

It's very comfortable setup is a Glock gen 3 19 with a x300u and a tourniquet sidecar I'd recommend it to any Southern especially the ones that like going commando in these 110⁰ summers, if your running a Tourniquet and at the time of my purchase they did not make one for that holster but it will work you just need to supply your own hardware, definitely better hardware than what I used but I made due with what I had on hand, the only major problem I have with this and might be a result of the x300, but I'm pretty sure the belt claws are in roughly the same place I have to cut a good chunk out of the upper corner to follow the contour of the holster by the grip, because it was in the way of my middle finger getting around the grip, over all I think it's a good product but it still in it's infancy and needs some more refinement or at least more models need to be available.

David (Tenino, US)
Increases comfort immensely

I've been waiting for something like this for awhile. Works wonders when running AIWB with no undershirt. It DOES cause the system to protrude / print a bit more though... Just be aware of that.

John smith
Improved comfort w/ slight mod

This is a great idea and it has give me the ability to wear my side car during long rucks and hikes or just outside in the heat. My only complaint is the material impedes my draw because it gets in the way of my purchase on the pistol when I draw. I used some scissors and a razor blade to cut away some material and now I can draw quickly while maintaining comfort. Big improvement.

Joe Torrez (Manor, US)
Great addition!

The icevents AIWB was a great addition for my sidecar 2.0.
