N8 Tactical KO-1 Modular Kydex IWB Holster – First Look

N8 Tactical announced the release of the company's first all-Kydex holster called the KO-1.

N8 Tactical KO-1 Modular Kydex IWB Holster – First Look

N8 Tactical developed the KO-1 to provide diverse and customizable carry configurations for concealed carry practitioners who favor an IWB holster. The KO-1 starts with a one-piece Kydex pocket form-fitted to specific handgun models. The pocket's slim design ensures minimal bulk and maximum concealment compared to conventional IWB holsters.

To customize fit and preferred carry style, the KO-1 is easily adjustable for ride height and cant. In addition to height and cant adjustment, the KO-1 can also be adjusted for retention. This system lets the user find the perfect tension for their draw style and preferred feel.

Two clip options are offered. The low-ride clip places the mounting hardware well below the waist band/belt line, allowing for shirts to be tucked inside the pants and behind the clip, as well as seating the handgun deeper into the pants. The high-ride clip mounts at the top of the Kydex pocket, positioning the pistol higher on the torso, making it ideal for untucked carry.

Further promoting fit and function is an optional Mod-Wing, which mounts behind the clip to provide outward tension on the waist band/belt. Featuring a reduced-slip contact surface, the Mod-Wing positions the handgun grip closer to the torso to minimize printing and to enhance overall stability for on-the-move carry conditions.


Introductory model compatibility for the KO-1 holster includes:

  • GLOCK 26/27,
  • GLOCK 19/19x/23
  • GLOCK 43/43x
  • SIG 320 X Compact
  • SIG 365/365XL
  • S&W M&P 4.25"
  • Shield 9mm
  • Ruger LC9
  • 1911 5" non-railed
  • Springfield Hellcat
