Springfield Armory Hellcat is one of the best compact sized pistols, offering one of the best magazine capacities in its class of either 11+1 or 13+1 bullets (with the extended magazine). Considering that it is chambered in more than satisfactory 9mm Parabellum caliber, this is truly an achievement to be proud of. The Springfield Hellcat also comes with high visibility night sights and is specifically designed for people who intend to carry on an everyday basis.

But to what use is a great everyday concealed carry gun if you do not have a well-fitting holster that enables you to utilise its full potential? There are truly a thousand and more options on the market today and it has become quite overwhelming to choose the best of the best both in terms of quality, durability and price. But do not worry, here at Craft Holsters we got you covered with nearly anything your heart desires.
So without further ado, let’s dive in and take a look at the best carry styles and holsters for your Hellcat.
#1 - Springfield Hellcat IWB Holster
If we can grease our own pan, this Springfield Hellcat IWB holster is one of the best currently on the market. Not only its fits your Hellcat like a glove, but it's also made of premium materials. It also offers great concealment, high retention and uncompromising comfort and easy access. This Hellcat IWB holster is wet-molded, which makes it copy the contours of the pistol perfectly. The holster features open-bottom/top design with an integrated belt loop. All in all, this is one of the best and most comfortable IWB Hellcat holsters you can find and I hope you’ll be able to enjoy it to the max.
#2 - Springfield Hellcat light holster
This Springfield Hellcat light holster is great for anybody carrying their Hellcat outfitted with a light attachment. This leather Hellcat holster will provide a glove-like fit and serve any of your needs. Thanks to the low profile of this holster, you will still be able to carry concealed even if you attach a light to the pistol. This Springfield Hellcat light holster comes in both mahogany or black colour. On top of that, it can also be made for both right and left-handed shooters. Just don’t forget to tell us what exact light you are using on your Hellcat so that we can ensure perfect fit and maximum satisfaction.
#3 - Springfield Hellcat holster with mag pouch
Okay, so you buy a holster for your Hellcat, but what about mags? Why have only one when you can an extra magazine? This is where our Hellcat holster with mag pouch comes into play. Why carry your holster and mag pouch separately when you can now have them 2 in 1 - a nice and well made package? Our leather AIWB holster with mag pouch is designed to be carried concealed in the 1 o'clock appendix position. This Hellcat leather holster is also made from high quality Italian cowhide. On top of that it also features a sweat guard to protect your gun even further and to prevent corrosion.
#4 - Best Hellcat clip holster
This Hellcat IWB holster featuring a steel clip is currently one of the best on the market. The holster offers uncompromising comfort and it's designed for IWB carry. It's made of Italian leather and all the key parts are double stitched. As the holster is molded on the exact replica of the Hellcat, it delivers tight yet snug fit. The steel clip allows for very convenient and quick attachment to your belt. Because this Hellcat leather holster is not canted, I suggest you carry it in the 1 o'clock appendix position. This Hellcat clip holster is designed for 1.5 inch wide belts, but it can be modified to fit other widths as well.
#5 - Springfield Hellcat Shoulder Holster
Looking for a classic leather shoulder holster for your Hellcat? Then this shoulder system is just the thing you need! To make sure that your Hellcat stays in one place no matter what, we fitted the holster with a steel-reinforced thumb-break so that it retains its shape even after years of use. But the main kicker is that not only is it a shoulder holster, but it can be used as a Hellcat belt holster as well. So in short, you get 2 holsters in one package. This Hellcat shoulder holster also comes with 2 mag pouches to ensure proper balance and to give you more firepower than you will most likely ever need.
#6 - Springfield Hellcat Red Dot Holster
If you are looking for a high quality leather holster that will accommodate your Hellcat with a red dot or reflex sight, then you've just found it. This Hellcat Red Dot Holster offers enough room for your attachment and it even comes with a thumb break strap to ensure extra security. Due to a slight forward-leaning cant, the holster is best worn in the 3 o’clock position. If you decide to pair up your pistol with this Springfield Hellcat Red Dot holster, don't forget to include information about your optics device in the "your note" field once you've added the holster to your cart.
