The popularity of the standard Don Hume H715M W/C clip-on IWB model, coupled with customer requests, led Don Hume to create the H715M WCS model. This model is identical to the standard clip-on IWB, except that it also features an added body shield. The bodyshield is designed to help to protect the gun from moisture and provide a barrier between you and the rough edges of the pistol.
If you aren't familiar with a bodyshield, here's some pics showing the difference between the basic H715M W/C and the H715M WCS with a bodyshield:

Manufactured to fit both semi-auto and revolver pistols, the H715M WCS holster is made of lightweight 6-7 ounce leather and form molded specifically to the weapon that it is made for. This holster is available in Don Hume's saddle brown or black leather with a black oxide clip.
The top opening of the H715M-WCS holster has a reinforced leather band around the holster mouth to aid in reholstering. The clip is designed for optimum retention so that the holster stays in place during the draw, yet is easy to put on and take off.
Like the standard H715M W/C model, this design works very well worn strong side, or just behind the hip.
How to tell if they holster model you are interested in is in stock: On the dropdown menu out beside each holster, there will be a notification if the holster is in stock or out of stock. In stock holsters will be marked as "In Stock" and out of stock holsters will be marked as "Preorder: 30 to 90 day ETA".
Some commonly asked questions related to the H715M WCS model:
#1 - I saw the handgun I carry listed on the regular H715M W/C model but I don't see it listed on the model with the bodyshield?
Hume doesn't make the WCS model (with bodyshield) for the all the models listed on the non-bodyshield version. Currently, the WCS model is only made for the holsters listed on the drop down menu above.
#2 - What's the advantage of having a bodyshield?
The bodyshield option is ideal for shooters who don't want the weapon actually coming into contact with their bare skin or want any of the sharper edges making contact to the body. It's really a matter of preference as some people prefer the non-bodyshield version.
#3 - Is a bodyshield the same as a sweatguard?
Yes, sweat guard is another commonly used term meaning a bodyshield. Other common names are sweatshield, bodyguard, and body protector shield.
#4 - I've heard that black leather seems to conceal better?
Given that this model is designed for concealed carry, the color doesn't seem as important as it might be in an OWB holster. If you're wearing it right, then you'll be the only person that knows what color it is.
#5 - Does this model come in any configurations to fit a gun with a laser or light attached to it?
Unfortunately, it doesn't at this time. If you are looking for an IWB holster that will do that, try the MTR Nemesis IWB holster.
#6 - Does this holster or any of the other Don Hume IWB holsters ride any higher or lower in the waist than another?
No, Don Hume mounts the clip on the same spot for each holster no matter what the model, so they all ride at nearly the exact same height in the waist.
#7 - Aside from the bodyshield, are there any other differences between this model and the Hume H715M W/C model?
No, the only difference is the bodyshield. Everything else is exactly the same.

It took Don Hume a month to make the gun holster for me which was not a problem. It looks and feels good, I use it for my glock 19 gen 4 every day carry I am 100% happy with Don Hume and gunnersalley.

This is another winner! I carry mine with an East German Makarov securely nestled in it. The Bodyshield is what takes this holster from great to Great!
The workmanship is excellent & all stitches look ultra secure.
I will continue to look here at Gunner's Alley for my carry leather needs!

My first holster with the bodyshield. Like it better than those I have without the bodyshield. Excellent holster, easy on, and easy off. Stays where it is put and is comfortable to wear with large frame pistols. Well worth the wait!

I bought this holster to carry, i also have purchased Gunners Alley double thick gun belts. The holster retains the gun great but it doesn't stay on the double thick belt, I had to switch to a thinner belt. It's fine for my small Sig 938 but for a bigger gun i'm not so sure.

I have been using a Don Hume IWB carry holster for over 5 years. I have several of them to fit the 3 different carry guns I prefer. I find the holster to be comfortable to wear and the body shield is especially appreciated. No gouging the body in a seated position from the appendix carry I prefer. It also keeps perspiration off the gun. The holster also keeps it shape and wears well over the years.

My first 715M was pre-body shield for a custom Browning P35. I travel with it constantly. My second was for a S&W shield and recently purchased a body shield for a Glock 42. I have two ammo cans full of new or barely used holsters that just didn't feel right. This is my go-to holster.

Until I bought this Don Hume clip on I had been unable to find a quality holster that did not break the bank. This holster fits my gun like a glove right out of the box. Everything about the construction seems just right. I am making this one of my daily concealed carry holsters.

Holster fits my Glock 26 GEN4 like a glove. I have oversized sights (XS 24/7 Big Dot) so the front sight grabbed the holster a little at first but called Gunner's Alley and they walked me through the break in process...super customer service which is extremely rare these days!

Very please with the item that I got even with the wait I had.

I wanted to carry a snubby 357 magnum and holsters for a large frame snubby are not common. So I had to wait the full 90 days while they made my holster. But it was worth the wait - it is an excellent product. I can carry comfortably and the holster does not add any bulk. The clip is sturdy and no break in was required. The leather was soft right out of the box. Thank you for the excellent product!
