3. Blackhawk Serpa CQC Concealment Holster
The Blackhawk Serpa CQC is one of the best IWB holsters for XDS. The model comes with a matte finish and comes in a variety of colors.
It is not only suitable for holstering the XD-S but can holster other varieties of pistol types comfortably, such as the Glock 26, 27, and 33 models. It is the best option if you own more than one pistol that you would like to conceal and carry.
Furthermore, the holster incorporates the patented SERPA Auto-Lock technology that provides a smooth and fluid draw action. It is because the Auto-Lock mechanism releases your pistol swiftly when the need arises.
The speed-cut design makes the ease of drawing and reholstering even more fluid and easy, making it suitable for split-second operations.
There is also the option of a paddle platform, which is appropriate for inside-the-waistband holstering. There can also be a belt loop platform that enables you to carry your firearms outside the waistband.
The Blackhawk Serpa CQC Concealment Holster has an in-built passive retention detent adjustment screw that enables you to set your preferred retention level. Furthermore, it has immediate retention and audible click when you reholster your XDS or another pistol to assure you that it is safely in place without having to check on it visually.
Finally, this holster model has a unique L-shaped button that is designed in such a way that your finger can easily locate it. When it is pressed, it will immediately release your gun from the holster.
All these features make the Blackhawk Serpa CQC one of the best IWB holsters for the XDS.
