First Look: VersaCarry Compound Gen II Essential Holster

First Look: VersaCarry Compound Gen II Essential Holster

Versacarry’s Compound holster line was introduced last year, featuring their signature water buffalo leather, wrapped around a polymer shell. This two-in-one design creates a holster that combines the safety and security of a non-collapsible Kydes while providing the comfort and style of premium leather. 

This year, Versacarry is producing  an improved version of the Compound design, the new Compound Gen II Essential holster. This new IWB model uses water buffalo leather and polymer construction in an ultra slim design for added comfort for the user. 

Unlike the other hybrid holsters on the market, the Kydex in the Compound Gen II Essential is sewn between the leather so that it does not come in contact with your handgun. This gives you the comfortable carry of a leather holster, while still giving all of the high rigidity that a Kydex holster can offer. The Compound Gen II Essential also has a recessed portion on the front of the holster that reduces your chances of snagging your front sight on holster as you draw. 

The Versacarry Compound Gen II is built with a multi-layered construction giving the holster a rugged, long lasting appealing design and look. The holster features an adjustable draw tension screw that easily adjusts to fit the holster to most common handguns. A forward cant design is added for additional comfort and to it easier to draw your pistol from the holster. 

Versacarry Compound Gen II Essential Key Features:

  • Inside the Waistband (IWB) Style
  • Hybrid multi-layered construction utilizing water buffalo leather & polymer
  • Slim compact design for comfort
  • Adjustable draw tension for security and speed
  • Forward cant for easier draw
  • Non-collapsible design for ease of re-holstering


MSRP for the Versacarry Compound holster is $45.00, and more information is available at versacarry.com.
