If you happen to own a SIG Sauer P365XL that is sporting one of the new SIG Sauer ROMEOZero Elite optics, or you are running your P365XL sans optic, there is a new Galco Royal Guard 2.0 IWB holster available for your concealed carry options. The Galco Royal Guard 2.0 IWB holster is classically constructed of premium horsehide but is forward-thinking in fitting modern handguns.

Galco Coverage @ TFB:

Galco Royal Guard 2.0 IWB Holster (SKU: RG870RB) also fits the following guns: SIG Sauer P365XL, P365XL Spectre Comp no red dot, P365XL w/wo red dot

As you can read above, the Galco Royal Guard 2.0 fits much more than the SIG Sauer P365XL with or without a micro red dot. Since SIG Sauer has so many variations of their flagship P365, it is nice that Galco ensures their holster isn’t pigeonholed to one specific SKU or offering of the P365. All of the specs and features you can come to expect from the Royal Guard 2.0 can be read below as presented by Galco:

  • Rough out horsehide
  • Smooth gun pocket for easy draw
  • Butt-forward cant
  • Raised sweat guard to protect pistol and wearer
  • Metal-reinforced mouth for easy holstering
  • Black holster mouth and belt loops with natural tan body
  • Supplied with 1 3/4″ black belt loops
  • Optional tan and black belt loops in 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, and 1 3/4″  HERE

After decades of production, the Royal Guard has been improved based on Galco’s experience and market feedback over many years.

Constructed of premium horsehide, the Royal Guard™ 2.0 has the rough side of the leather out for greater stability in the pants, while the smooth side of the leather lies against the handgun for a slicker draw feel. The butt-forward cant increases concealability when worn behind the strong hip, while the addition of a raised sweat guard protects both the handgun and the gun carrier. The new black-colored metal-reinforced mouth allows easy one-handed return to the holster. The Royal Guard 2.0 is supplied with removable black belt loops fitting belts up to 1 3/4”, with optional tan and black 1 1/4”, 1 1/2″, and 1 3/4″ belt loops available. All these features combine to make a truly professional-grade IWB holster.

The improved Royal Guard 2.0 is offered for right hand draw, in two-tone color scheme using a natural holster body with a black collar and belt loops.
