ADJUSTABLE CARRY DEPTH
One piece design with the seam on top of the slide
so the bottom of the holster that touches your inner leg is rounded and smooth.
Biothane strap keep holster top seam closed and lets holster flex instead of break
Trigger block insert decreased stress transferred from the claw to the holster.
The Main retention is on the weapon light. the slide channel is open at the end and accommodates multiple makes/models of handguns.
Comfort level: AIWB carry is not really comfortable. Even without a light, it is something that should be described as different levels of tolerable/concealable.
As far as AIWB holsters go, This a pretty tolerable holster considering you are concealing an X300/U weapon light on your gun.
MADE WITH A LOT OF PRIDE IN USA/OHIO
RAVEN CONCEALMENT CLAW/ IWB HOOKS/SOFT LOOP
.90 BOLTORON PROUDLY MADE IN USA/OHIO P
- AIWB HOLSTER
- 2 IWB OVERHOOKS or 2 IWB SOFT PTD LOOPS (RAVEN CONCEALMENT)
- 1 CLAW (RAVEN CONCEALMENT) - SPARE HARDWARE
Question: So what makes the GOTHAM AIWB X300U HOLSTER so comfortable/tolerable? The plastic is wrapped completely around the bottom
and has a lot of contoured edges where it meets your inner leg. The top is purposefully swept back for a similar reason.
The nose is round and transitions smoothly to the rails.
Question: So what makes the GOTHAM so concealable? It has to be the use of the Raven Concealment Hardware/claw.
It really pulls the AIWB HOLSTER into your body to avoid printing. If it does not have a claw on it it probably prints.
The designer/s over at Raven really put out something great there. The first time I experienced it I knew it was a game changer
Question: So what does the bio-thane strap do? It does a few things. Instead using a fixed/riveted design,
It keeps the top seem together allowing for a smaller holster. This also allows the holster to flex/shimmy instead of breaking under stress.
(Bio-thane is also manufactured in OHIO)
Question: Is the GOTHAM AIWB HOLSTER compatible with an RCS WEDGE? Yes. You can order it with your holster.
Question: can I run this holster a little more comfortably and conveniently by running Just one hook? Yes
Question: Is the GOTHAM AIWB HOLSTER compatible with SUREFIRE DG SWITCHES? Yes, We can accommodate that request.
Question: So what's the deal with the internal block that the claw is bolted to? The block does a few things.
It helps relieve a lot of the stress that the weapon light pass through channel undergoes from compression.
It reduces the amount of stress transferred to the body from the claw/belt/compression. It also serves as
a bridge for your trigger to pass through and rest on, and the holster to wrap around. It is the heart of the holster
and it is superior than an internal rubber bushing system between the two walls. We install it ourselves avoid customer "over tightening".
Question: Can I run the holster without the claw? Yes! You are provided with spare hardware. Simply unscrew the claw
and replace the 1" Phillips machine head screw with the 3/4" button head screws to retain the block. Do not use the holster without the block.
Question: Do other guns fit the GOTHAM AIWB HOLSTER other than the GLOCK 19/17/22/23/34 Threaded /comp/ Roland special? Yes!
We are not saying this as a "universal" holster but it does fit a lot of different weapon systems like it was made for them for 3 reasons.
The first is the main retention on the holster is the light itself. The second is a lot of weapon makes have similar trigger guard to slide dimensions.
Last but not least the Bio-thane strap construction lets the holster flex and accommodate a range of different make/models.
SMITH&WESSON MP FULL/PRO, CZ P-07, HK VP9, to name a few.

I recently decided to move from carrying a PPQ to carrying a Glock 19, when shopping for a new holster, and doing research, the Gotham kept coming up...I decided to give it a go... I was not disappointed. Not only is the construction great but the comfort level is incredible. I can carry my Glock with an X300 more comfortably than I could carry my PPQ with no light attached in previous holsters. I did have some initial teething issues (my ignorance, not an issue with the holster), but when I reached out, I was contacted quickly, got squared away, and I have been exceptionally happy with my purchase ever since. I would highly recommend the Gotham to anyone looking for an AIWB light bearing holster, I honestly can't imagine anything being better. Many thanks for the amazing holster and incredible customer support!

This holster is excellently made, retention is perfect and tune able. It’s a little hard to set up but I’ve been using it for the last year. Super comfortable. Would recommended. Obviously, it’s a little big

I'm sure anyone who carries AIWB with a SF X300 would agree, there was very simply a gaping hole in the holster market for this set-up. That hole no longer exists with the Gotham holster. Conceals as well as the Raven Eidolon, and utilizes the same hardware. The BEST rig for AIWB with a SF X300, hands down. No one else in the industry can even come close. Best part is, when you buy from Bawidamann, you support small American business. Bawidamann does everything here in the USA, one holster handcrafted at a time. It's so obvious the level of design and pride in the Gotham. A sincere thank you.
Damn Good AIWB Rig

I have used the RCS Eidolon for a while and loved it, however my hunt for a AWIB Holster that could conceal a Roland Special build with a WML had been unsuccessful. I had about given up on the search and was going to just have to deal with the existing holster selection when I found the Bawidamann Gotham: simply speaking it blew my mind. It conceals as well as the Eidolon and is even more comfortable. The build quality is superb, 11 out 10 on this one.
