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 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 is supplied with removable black belt loops fitting belts up to 1 3/4in, with optional 1 1/4in belt loops available for wear with narrower dress belts. All these features combine to make a truly professional-grade IWB holster. The improved Royal Guard is offered for right hand draw, in natural/black color.
