First Look: Galco Classic Lite Holster for the SIG P365 Series Pistols

posted on February 11, 2020

The SIG Sauer P365 and P365XL pistols have become some of the best-selling pistols of the past years. The P365 was Shooting Illustrated’s Handgun of the Year for 2019, and the P365XL is also making a name for itself. Designed for concealed carry, these pistols need good holsters to reach their maximum potential, which is where Galco comes in. Galco is known for making some of the most comfortable, versatile and most-imitated shoulder-holster systems in the world, and its best-selling Classic Lite shoulder holster is now available for both the SIG Sauer P365 and P365XL pistols. 

The Classic Lite shoulder holster is made for a variety of semi-automatic pistols and double-action revolvers, and it gives you the comfort and versatility of a professional-grade shoulder rig. The system uses Galco’s own harness connectors and its trademarked clover-shaped Flexalon swivel back plate in order to achieve the same level of comfort found in the famous Miami Classic line of shoulder holsters. 

The Classic Lite uses the very durable Premium Center Cut Steerhide found in other Galco holsters to deliver a very reasonably priced alternative shoulder system for your P365 or P365XL that has over a decade’s worth of proven performance. The horizontal gun positioning combines great concealment with an extremely fast draw, two things that are critical in holsters designed for everyday defensive carry.

The Classic Lite system includes a holster, a harness, an ammo carrier and a full set of harness fasteners. Like other professional-grade rigs from Galco, the Classic Lite is fully modular, with accessories like cuff cases and tie-downs available as optional extras. 

The Galco Classic Lite for the P365 series is currently available in right-hand draw in natural tan color. MSRP for the holster is $112, and more information is available at
