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 Custom Adversary 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.

Love this product have had it 2yrs now and showing no signs of wear..wear it every day...
Great holster works well for me.
Purchased this for my Makarov (9x18), It fit pretty well as is. I wanted it a bit more snug so I wet molded it to the pistol and now it is a glove and good retention. GREAT product. This is the 2nd Don Hume holster I have ordered and very happy.
Fits my Colt Mustang perfectly, comfortable to wear.
Overall happy with the holster. It fits the pistol well, and seems to be of good quality. My only complaint would be that it rides in my waistband a little higher than I prefer. It would be nice if the height and cant were adjustable. Other than that, it rides comfortable and fits my pistol like a glove.
My Sig P229 has found a permanent home in a Don Hume 715 IWB with bodyshield. Switched from Kydex which was comfortable and fast but i got tired of wear on the retention points and the sound of metal on plastic. I just like the feel and sight of quality leather and the Don Hume makes the big Sig disappear and it carries concealed like a dream. The Don Hume finds its own natural cant. Once broken in, the draw is smooth and fast. Retention is secure. (Just won't work on an extra thick bison belt). No need to look any further. A shout out to Gunner's Alley for a quality product and customer service. .
This is one of the best leather IWB holsters on the market today. I am not a big fan of kydex, so that limits my choices. There are a few leather holster manufacturers out there, and, in my opinion, Don Hume's holsters are the best! The customer service of Gunner's Alley is always great. Their shipping time is very fast and their products are always as advertised.
I've only had this for a couple of weeks, wearing it around the house and on a couple of errands. Here's what I think. When I tried it for appendix carry, I found the edges below the trigger guard rough, I took a file to it and it was fixed. When you cinch your belt tight, it pushes the grip of my glock 19 out. Loosen the belt and it goes back in, but not far enough in my opinion. In the 4 o'clock position, it's great. Still sticks out some, but with an over garment it's great. Just not a good summer wear for my slim body type.
Holster was great fitting to me and the gun. Excellent customer service, PO was rejecting my address and the guys in the shop called to make sure everything was kosher and that I had ordered the correct item. Will be buying here again!
