The Galco Scout 3.0 Holster is now available for the extremely popular SIG Sauer P365 pistol series, a pistol series that has become one of the go-tos in the CCW/EDC (every day carry) defensive handgun product category. The Galco Scout 3.0 Holster is an adjustable strongside, cross draw or even appendix IWB (inside the waistband) leather holster designed with a reinforced fully open top for easy draw access. The holster is also built so that the wearer can get a full grip on the pistol prior to the draw to make it quicker draw out your pistol. With its adjustable belt clip, the holster’s cant and angles can be tweaked to suit the carrier anywhere inside their waistband, from traditional IWB strongside all the way appendix carry. In addition to this, the Scout 3.0 includes two types of interchangeable belt clips; the Galco UniClip and the Galco Ultimate Stealth tuckable clip, both of which allow for a higher degree of concealment. Another benefit of the open top design means that the Scout 3.0 holster is carry optics friendly, as slide mounted electronic dot sights are becoming increasingly popular.  

The exterior of the Galco Scout 3.0 Holster has the rough side of the steerhide leather while the interior, where the firearm rests, has the softer and smoother portion. The Scout 3.0 is available in a natural leather finish with a black holster mouth band.
