Wedge Kit

Primarily for AIWB carry but it can also help remove hot spots when wearing the holster at the 3-5.

SKU: ICON Category:


This Holster is designed to fit Smith & Wesson J Frames Only(exact models listed below).  Kydex has tighter tolerances than leather so similar sized revolvers of other brands will not fit.  If you have a question about your gun fitting please contact us before ordering.

The “Icon” holster is named to honor the iconic gun that it carries.  The revolver. The Smith and Wesson J-Frame revolver is an American classic that can still hold its own in the crowded market of great concealed carry options. Great for low profile situations a revolver needs a holster that is comfortable, easy to use and conceals with a wide variety of clothing options.

Great for all types of clothing(workout, casual, and workwear) the versatile Discreet Carry Concepts Mod W clip on the Icon allows you to carry both your S&W J Frame with and without a belt.  We worked closely with Discreet Carry Concepts to optimize the clamping pressure for this application. The placement of the Mod W makes this holster extremely low profile and minimalist.

This holster is ambidextrous with mounting options on both sides of the holster.  With a Smith and Wesson J Frame revolver holster that could be used as either a backup gun (BUG) or a primary, it gives you the option of decided what hand you’ll want to draw with.

If you’re using your revolver holster as a backup to carry your backup gun the ambidextrous nature gives you lots of options of where to carry the gun.  The Icon revolver holster is perfect if you’re setting your carry gear up for a New York Reload.

A New York reload is when you drop your primary handgun draw the 2nd gun instead of reloading your primary.

With the cant adjustable ambidextrous clip, the Icon Smith and Wesson J Frame revolver holster works equally well for AIWB carry or carrying at the 4 or 8 o’clock.

3-4 o’clock and 9-8 o’clock carry work really well for carrying the revolver when jogging or working out.  You naturally have more tension in your waistband at those positions and it supports the gun well.

If you need more support for the weight of the revolver and holster when wearing workout clothing I would suggest wearing compression shorts under your regular workout shorts or pants. AIWB doesn’t work as well for this application if you find yourself doing lots of explosive movements or even just jogging. This is due to the lack of natural tension in your waistband.

It’s much better to carry the revolver holster closer to the hips where things hug tighter.

J Frame Appendix Holster

Carrying your Smith and Wesson J Frame AIWB has previously been a problem because J Frame Appendix Holsters were bulky and awkward. The Icon has rounded edges and a contour that fits perfectly in the natural pocket of the inner thigh. Adding a Foam Wedge to the Icon will make your J frame holster more concealable as it helps tip the muzzle out from the body. A foam wedge isn’t as necessary on an IWB revolver holster as the majority of the weight is in the cylinder that sits below the beltline. But the foam wedge will help with concealment.

Icon 642

The Smith and Wesson 642 fits in the Icon Revolver Holster like a glove. As you can see above it’ll work with the Crimson Trace LG-405 grips. Unfortunately, our J Frame holster is not compatible with the Crimson Trace LG-350 Grips.

  1. Derick Allen

    Been using the Icon for about a month and absolutely love it. Works with gym shorts and in multiple positions along the belt line. My 360 stays put no rattling clean draw and re holstering is a breeze. I carry mostly AIWB even while sitting it isn’t too uncomfortable.

    There is quite a bit to like from this holster, but it could be better. + My 442 snaps into place and is held securely. The clip is good. I can wear this with sweats or basketball shorts. – My 442 rattles in the holster due to the holster being molded to fit many J frames and not a different mold for specific models. Idea: Add one additional hole to allow the revolver to angle back (opposite of FBI cant). Personally this would allow it to conceal better AIWB.

    Received my Icon last week, and just wanted to drop a quick note about it. Workmanship appears excellent, and it fits my S&W 640 perfectly. Carried it all weekend appendix, and it is very comfortable. The 640 is fairly heavy (for a J-frame), and you really almost forget it’s there. Thanks for great product and quick turnaround time.

    Great holster, tough and very durable. . Conceals beautifully and holds my S&W 38 Airweight with just the right snugness for stability ….but will allow a quick pull out of the holster. Nicely done. highly recommended.

    Recently bought my daughter a Smith 642 and was looking for a quality Kydex holster that was slim, form fitting and secure. I chose this and am very happy. First, the Kydex mold for the J frame is perfect. The revolver literally snaps in to place and is very secure. You can adjust the retention strength with a single screw. It’s streamline and covers just what needs to be covered and nothing more. No bulk on this holster. The ambi belt/pant clip is strong and easy to change from side to side. Build quality and finish are excellent. My only slight hesitation is that it seems a bit overpriced at $50 + shipping. Would I buy I again? Yes but this really should be a $40 holster. My point of comparison is CrossBreed, StealthGear, Alien and several other holsters manufacturers whose product I own. Love the holster but just think it’s a bit overpriced.

    As one who has carried J-frames exclusively now for almost 30 years, and has tried every holster out there for them, I have to say that this is by far not only the best kydex holster but the best holster period for the J-frame!

    Harry’s Holsters has hit an absolute grand-slam with this holster!

      Glad you like it!

    Have had mine for right on a year now. This is a really well-made kydex holster, holding up great, great retention, and very comfortable with the gun. Now I just need an OWB version 😉

  8. Paul H.

    This holster is perfect whether you’re lounging around the house in basketball shorts or out and about in pants with a gun belt. The clip on this holster is so versatile it works no matter the occasion. I’ve never been able to appendix carry a semi automatic pistol comfortably but this j frame holster is not only comfortable while carrying appendix but it disappears under a t-shirt too.
