<strong>BLACKHAWK! IWB Size 1</strong></br> Pure simplicity of design describes the <a target="blank" href="http://www.blackhawk.com">BLACKHAWK!</a> IWB Size 1 soft pouch for the Glock 42. This uses a contoured, soft, synthetic pouch with an injection-molded belt clip. The soft, suede-like exterior rests against your side and the entire frame and slide are covered by the holster’s trim contours, leaving only the grips exposed.

<strong>CrossBreed MiniTuck</strong></br> Another new design comes from <a target="blank" href="http://www.crossbreedholsters.com">CrossBreed Holsters</a>. This version of its MiniTuck has the Glock 42 securely retained in a triggerguard-locking, hand-formed Kydex pouch that is riveted to a steer hide skirt fitted with two height-adjustable steel belt clips. The soft leather backer will form to your body and make the holster rig comfortable to wear while the dual clips keep the holster rigidly in place. The Kydex pouch has a slight forward cant for an easier draw, and the leather skirt has a raised panel to keep the top of the slide from making contact with your body. It is a very well executed design.(<a target="blank" href="http://www.crossbreedholsters.com">http://www.crossbreedholsters.com</a>; 888-732-5011)
