Wilderness Renegade Ankle Holster

In stock
Product Details
I (Rob) started carrying a Renegade "Cozy Partner" In the early 90s. It served me well. the attributes were it was secure, it was so comfortable with a alloy 2" J frame, I hardly knew it was there. Downside, they wore out after 10 years of everyday use. (Not too bad, really) When Renegade literately fell off the map, I started making my own version. Then I saw what the Wilderness had done with their much improved version and stopped. There is no need to trying duplicate what the Wilderness has achieved: A much more robust and durable ankle holster.
I prefer ankle carry for seated positions, while driving etc.


"While we have always had an absolute dislike for copying other's designs, an exception has arisen. We were happy buying the Renegade "Cozy Partner" Ankle holsters from the Renegade Holster and Leather Co. and retailing them for years as a slightly enhanced version we modified in-house, but unfortunately they are no longer in business and this great CCW rig has been out of production.

Years ago, our founder Ralph Holzhaus had mentioned to the owner of Renegade that if she ever wanted to sell the company that The Wilderness might be interested in acquiring it. However, we never heard back and Renegade has now disappeared. Our attempts to contact them have proven futile, so here we are trying to fill our own needs and others. We are now making our version of the "Renegade" ankle holsters here in Phoenix, as with all Wilderness-brand products. We are very pleased with the quality of the product, including a few of our own improvements."

Design Attributes

  • Both elastic and leather holster bodies available for many snub revolvers and autos. Compatibility list will continually expand as we discover which similar models also fit the available sizes.
  • The elastic ankle band is now a slightly heavier material, and we have added a hook fastener overlock piece for security against it coming unfastened unintentionally.
  • We use real sheepskin, not synthetic, and trim the fleece by hand to shape.
  • A vapor barrier is added behind the sheepskin fleece to reduce sweat transfer to the holster and your gun.
  • The gun pouch is made from a new custom-laminated version of the heavier elastic used on the ankle band. It is more rugged, water-resistant, and is molded and sewn to specific gun models for a proper fit (*pistols with squared trigger guards may require a slight side-to-side rocking motion to seat into the holster when new). We offer a growing variety of versions to fit many popular autos and revolvers.
  • Our version of the holster body extends below the muzzle to both conceal it and protect your ankle bone from it. This also helps prevent debris and water from getting into the muzzle.
  • Our model for autos features a retention strap made of our XHD elastic webbing and it may be used in two different ways; either by a sharp pull-through draw which will force the elastic slide off of the back of most autos and release them, or by pressing with your thumb against the sewn-in ‚"pinch" and sliding it forward off of the pistol slide‚'s rear much like using a thumb-break. This pinched area may also be grasped to pull the strap up and over the slide to secure the pistol when reholstering. Silent and extremely secure even when running, we think this new strap design works very well.
  • Right-hand and left-hand models available, but stock may vary.

We stock Right hand only. We will special order Left handed version upon request. Use the contact page if you have any questions.
