[ OVERVIEW ]
Making AIWB Comfortable…for the first time.
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 with or without Streamlight TLR-7 + Pistol Mag Attachment (the same footprint accommodates Sidecar 2.0s with or without the TLR-7), Right Hand Draw.Have questions? Click here to go to FAQ

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.
[ 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 + 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 + 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.
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 + 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 3Q21).
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 when the reliability and quality control issues are addressed.
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. Demo video below:

Just what the doctor ordered ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 👍👌🇺🇸.
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 !
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.
Nice cool feeling when you first put it on. Give the holster and your body a layer of cushion for all day comfort.
Feels great 👌 ! A must for the Sidecar! I currently have this model on an M&P compact.
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!
Improves comfort so much
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.
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!
