At the beginning of 2021 Code 4 Defense set out to produce the best possible IWB Kydex holster. When we started the design, we asked ourselves what we wanted most in a concealed carry IWB holster. The simple answer came down to three things; comfort, concealability, and strong retention.
With these points in mind, we began the design, testing, and evaluation process that took us 8 months. The result is the new BLACKOUT series IWB holster, and we feel it is one of the most comfortable, and concealable holsters on the market. In addition, we designed the BLACKOUT holster to work with all of our existing molds. This offers a wide variety of handgun and weapon light options, all while reducing the cost to the end user.
- Adjustable retention
- Concealment wing with a concave face that grips the belt for better performance
- Ergonomic bump out on the back of the holster which improves comfort, while pushing the top of the holster towards the body
- Adjustable ride height, and forward cant
- Injection molded belt clips, or the metal Monoblock clip
- Mid-height sweat guard for easy re-holstering, and weapon protection
- Cut for micro red dot systems
- Able to accommodate suppressor height sights
- Optional block out for suppressor barrel

Fantastic fit! VP9 with a threaded barrel & micro muzzle brake, TLR1 HL, a Trijicon red dot and I can carry with just a t-shirt. Thank you.

Finally someone paid attention to what’s important in an IWB holster! If you carry appendix, you need the belt claw, pressure relieving mold (also for inward cant) on the back side, and a solid center clip. I can carry my FNX 45 Tactical, with a TLR1, and a 509T on top in normal clothes without printing. This is a huge handgun and it disappears. It’s also comfortable.
I will be ordering several more of this holster for other firearms.
Oh and it’s only $50 bucks, which is a third of the price of other kydex makers, and the metal clip option beats the crap out of the mass produced plastic wide clip most companies use.
5 Stars all the way.
Great company, extremely receptive to feedback, don’t hesitate to buy.

For 50$ You really cant beat the value. For a few years now I’ve been searching for a IWB LIGHTBEARING holster for a Left handed person and this is the first I’ve found. Love it.

Outstanding holster. This thang just feels right, there’s Kydex that acts like a mod wing, wedge , and Monoblock clip is high quality. It fits perfect. It slightly pushes the gun close to your body, in a way that feels comforting. Functionality (so far) is flawless and I will use in my fall/winter EDC rotation. The kydex has a pleasant feel, and good fit, smooth edges. it’s not a 120$ Gucci holster finish, but it feels like it. Will recommend

HK VP9 with a Holosun red dot and Streamlight TLR-7A
Fit absolutely perfect with no adjustments needed at all. Very comfortable and no printing at all with a regular t-shirt.
Thank you code4defense, this was my first holster purchase and certainly will not be the last.
