Help with Custom Ride Heights and Cant Angles



The red lines indicate the top of the belt for each ride height. The black block indicates the belt for a mid ride height (most common). As you can see, the straight draw and forward cant angles work well with each ride height. Where we run into trouble, is the greater reverse cant angles. The 22.5° and 30° reverse cant angles should not be paired with a low ride, ever- unless you want your grip buried in your waistline, and should only be paired with a mid ride if you are fully aware of where your grip will sit. Half of the grip could be potentially in your waistline with a mid ride and greater reverse cant angle, so choose with caution and train with the holster often.

We chose a Glock 19 for the illustration due to it's popularity. Some firearms have different grip structure and/or different grip angles, so actual product's ride height and cant angles may slightly vary.
