Pancake Holster FAQ

What is a Pancake Holster?

A pancake holster is a type of concealed carry holster designed to sit close to the body for discreet and comfortable carry. Its unique design consists of two flat panels that sandwich your firearm, creating a slim profile that minimizes printing and enhances concealment.

How to Wear a Pancake Holster?

Wearing a pancake holster is straightforward. Simply thread your belt through the holster's slots, ensuring a secure fit on your waistband. Position the holster at your preferred carry location, typically on the strong side (3-5 o'clock position) for easy access. They pretty much work as OWB holsters, but due to their slimmer design, they’re a viable choice for concealed carry.
