Women's Concealed Carry Perfected

Buttery soft leather combined with rigid thermoplastic make The Ava feel like holster perfection.  The soft suede backing helps promote airflow and comfort, while the adjustable tension allows you to set your own draw.  Each clip attaches to its own set of 5 adjustable holes - this means you have up to 25 different cant/depth combinations!  The original heavy-duty clips and adjustable tension make it easy to create the amount of retention you like best with your firearm, and now the optional Ulticlips make carrying sans-belt even more comfortable and safe!

Perfect for Larger Firearms

Because the Ava uses two attachment points, it provides a more stable platform for larger firearms.  More stable equals more comfortable.  You won't find yourself constantly adjusting your holster throughout the day.  It also makes your draw faster because there won't be as much holster-shift as you pull your firearm.

Why Ulticlip?

Using the Ulticlip with your holsters is a GAME CHANGER, y'all!  If you don't like wearing a belt (or don't typically wear one), you're fighting the constant battle of getting the tension on your holster loose enough to keep the holster itself clipped onto your waistband as you draw, and tight enough to retain your firearm when you're NOT drawing.  It's tricky!  With the Ulticlip, you can latch your holster in place and adjust the tension as you please!  It's not going anywhere!

Ava Holster

Amazing and incredibly comfortable! I love that this holster has 2 ulti-clips! I seriously couldn’t believe how comfortable it is. I ordered a Betty right after, just so I can switch out back and forth according to what I wear/feel/activity. I’m excited for that one to come in too! I had the wing attachment added after I ordered, and I can’t express enough how amazing the customer service is! Great and awesome quality products, just like the sweet people that make them!

Ava Holster

I LOVE this holster!! So well made, smaller and more comfortable than I thought it would be. The royal purple with matcing stitching on the gator print leather I chose makes me happy when I look at it! Lol Thank you Flashbang team.

I have tried soooo many holsters since I started carrying. All of them had severe downsides (to the point I couldn’t use them), but the Ava is absolutely perfect!! It fits my curves soooo well and it’s so comfortable. I forget it’s even there! Definitely the only brand of holsters I’ll use from here on out! Oh, and not to mention the personal email updates on my order!!! I love Flashbang!

The search for the perfect holster, OVER!

What a beautiful, comfortable holster! I purchased the Ava holster for my new S&W Shield. A bit bigger than my BodyGuard, so I was totally out of my comfort zone with conceal carry for my Shield. Not only did Julie take the time, and a fair amount of patience to help me out, but this holster is perfect, comfortable and I am sure will last me forever. The craftsmanship is outstanding! Thank you Flashbang!

Ava Holster

I love the Ava holster. In fact, it’s my 3rd one. It’s my favorite holster for all day wear. It’s so comfortable and conceals beautifully, even under relatively lightweight fabrics.

I was very surprised at the packaging when my holster arrived in my mailbox. I ordered this to carry concealed and it came in a white bag with red hearts and the return address of flashbang holsters. In a rural area with a small town post office it is definitely no longer concealed. Having read through the reviews I was surprised this wasn’t mentioned. Holster seems well made.

I'm sorry Angie! We've never had a problem with that before...we try to keep things fun and light-hearted with our packaging. Red hearts are pretty generic and the name Flashbang Holsters doesn't mean "gun" to most people :) I apologize that we caused any drama for you...hopefully it slides right off the radar.


Great concept

Initially it was super comfortable. However, after sitting for a while, the muzzle of my Officer's Model 1911 started digging I to my hip/leg. Super painful. Then the thumb guard and hammer started doing the same. Very disappointed. Great idea but better for smaller weapons, I think. I'll probably still order one for my Springfield 911 provided I can have some assurance the same problem won't happen again.

Hey Virginia! Depending on how short-waisted you are, carrying a gun in appendix (or anywhere to the front of the body) can be challenging. I have the same trouble! A smaller gun can help, or you could try moving your holster to a different area of your waist. Maybe behind the hip a bit? Give us a shout if you'd like any help! :)


So good I had to get another!

I first got an Ava for my M&P Compact about 2 years ago and discovered it was so comfortable I wouldn't even notice it was there. I carry every day all day - from the moment I get dressed in the morning until I put on my PJs at night. When I recently traded in my M&P Compact for a Sig P365, I decided to try a different holster - one with a single point of attachment like the ones my husband uses. But after a couple weeks of use, I lost a screw after making an adjustment (probably my fault) and it dumped my gun TWICE in one day! That night I ordered a new Ava for the P365. I feel MUCH more secure having two points of attachment and even though the Ava is much larger than the previous holster, it doesn't feel larger due to the way it hugs my body. I don't plan to change carry guns any time soon, but if I do, I will get an Ava. Period. Oh, and last weekend, I shot a Close Quarters Pistol course with my Ava and the M&P 9 Compact. The Ava performed flawlessly throughout the course and was easy to reholster as we did drill after drill. While most of the folks in the class used an OWB, I wanted to train with the IWB holster I use every day. It confirmed that Ava is the right choice. Thanks for making a great holster!
