The Sig Sauer P365 has been an absolute game changer in terms of concealed carry and the way we shoot small guns for self-defense. They revolutionized the thought of carrying a gun when they crammed 10+ rounds of 9mm into a small, single-stack-sized frame and called it done.
Since its release other companies have released their version of a high capacity micro compact but there will only ever be one Sig P365.
Since it has been out for a while there is a literal ton of aftermarket support for this gun. And even though it’s a great gun from the factory, it’s not perfect and can get closer to that point.
Navigating your way around this mess if you’re in the market to take your pistol to the next level can be a daunting task, so I thought I’d put together the list of the best SIG Sauer P365 Upgrades and most comfortable holsters.
What are the best SIG P365 Accessories?
While the SIG P365 is a great carry gun that has received industry wide praise for concealed carry, there are a few improvements that should be made that will make the gun even better. Chief among these improvements is changing the thickness of the grip to allow for a better purchase on the gun itself while shooting. Other accessories that are suitable for inclusion into this list is a weapon mounted light and giving the gun even higher capacity than it comes with from the factory.
Sig P365 Grip
One of the most popular aftermarket accessories for the p365 actually arises out of a need where the gun falls short. This pistol, while an excellent carry option for concealment purposes, does come at the cost of a very small grip (circumference wise). For some people, me included, the grip is actually too thin, and not beefy enough.
Because of this, I recommend that EVERYONE who owns a SIG P365 buy this or a similar grip. I will say that this is the number one selling 365-specific grip on Amazon for a reason and you will not regret it.
The P365 is already a very shootable and controllable gun, and this grip only helps you shoot it better. Stack as much on your side as you can for your defensive situation to make sure you come out on top. You won’t regret it.
Sig P365 Light and Accessory Rail
This next one fills another void with a factory gun. So, one thing that I thought was a real bonehead move on Sig Sauer’s part was the accessory rail. Their accessory rail will only fit lights and attachments that’ll fit on this proprietary rail, usually made by them.
What this means, is that you cannot buy a PL-Mini2 from O-Light and install it on your P365 (which is my go-to WML, or weapon mounted light).
Sig’s 365 rail is a proprietary design and only a few manufacturers make lights for this particular rail.
There are some weapon mounted lights that will fit, but they’re usually made by SIG and aren’t very bright. This one, for example, will help light up some, but doesn’t get too bright.
However, there is an attachment that will turn the SIG proprietary rail with nearly zero accessories available, into a picatinny rail that enables you to put whatever you want, from whatever brand you want.
You can buy them right here on Amazon, and are well worth the price. I’m working on a review right now on this device so stay tuned for that, and every other review I’ve read has said that it’s great.
And again, I recommend the OLIGHT PL-MINI 2 Valkyrie (Amazon link), which is 600 lumens, and a good, small size for your small concealment pistol.
NOTE — The above setup will seriously limit the number of holsters you can carry this gun in. Hence the bonehead move by SIG. If you want more holster options, you must opt for a dimmer light, like the above linked one made by SIG themselves, or a TLR-6 made by Streamlight (Brownells link), and they also sell them on eBay.
That TLR-6 is still only 100 lumens, and not very bright, but if you require a holster and can’t have one custom made, this is about your only option to have a WML. As a bonus, the TLR-6 doubles as a laser if you’re looking for one of them.
SIG P365 Extended Mag
If you’re going to carry this gun for personal protection, we recommend carrying it with the 10 round mag for optimal concealment, with an extra magazine elsewhere on your body to maximize your effectiveness and round count. (One of the below mentioned holsters comes with a free mag pouch that you may want to take advantage of.)
Gun Mag Warehouse sells both the 12-round magazines and the 15-round magazines and they’re in stock a lot more often than other places where they’re constantly selling out (this is not a guarantee that they’ll be in stock, this is a popular accessory).
SIG P365 XL
Okay, this is kind of cheating, but I actually prefer the 365 XL to the original model (and I’ve shot both guns a lot) and is the one I choose to carry. I strongly recommend this as an upgrade to your pistol, because it is better in every aspect. You can read my review on the 365 XL here on our website.
Best Sig P365 Holster
If you’re planning to carry your P365 (and they excel for self-defense applications and concealed carry) you’re going to need a holster for it. I had another article dedicated solely to this topic but decided to just merge the two together, so everything is in one spot.
If there is one thing that is absolutely true, it’s that there is no shortage of holsters for the P365. This is the best selling gun of our current age, and SIG was unable to keep up with demand at first. Because of this, all holster manufacturers make products for this gun.
Therefore, the following holsters are ones that we use and personally recommend. We’re NOT like other “gun blogs” who have zero experience in the guns or topics we talk about.
Since this is all personal experience and we cannot test every single holster under the sun, this will not be an exhaustive list of the best SIG Sauer P365 holsters.
Concealment Express IWB Kydex
There is a reason this is the number 1 selling holster on Amazon. It’s affordable and high quality. This holster is made of Kydex, is cant adjustable, and has adjustable retention. Even better, is the fact that it is claw compatible should you desire the benefits using a claw can add (like even better concealability).
I’m in the process of working on a review for the holster I have, but can say right now that this is a good option at a great price. You can buy them at the above Amazon link, or better yet from directly from their website.
Bravo Concealment Torsion 3.0
The Bravo Concealment (Amazon link) Torsion 3.0 is Bravo Concealment’s newest holster and when ordered from Amazon it comes with a free mag pouch. It’s one of the rare IWB holsters that accommodates an adjustable tension device. It’s all polymer and has a rigid and strong design. It can utilize a single or dual clip set up and can be worn in both an IWB and AIWB configuration.
The Torsion is also able to accommodate your P365 if you decide to modify it. This is the best P365 holster if you want to rock a miniature red dot sight and a threaded barrel as it is designed to accommodate both of these add ons.
Clinger No Print Wonder V3
The Clinger No Print Wonder V3 is a very simple and versatile holster that can easily switch between IWB, OWB, and Appendix carry. Swapping it to each configuration takes only a few minutes.
It does easily conceal and is a very affordable holster, especially when you consider the fact it is actually three holsters in one.
The No Print Wonder V3 can even swap between left and right-handed shooters for ease of use. In its IWB configuration it’s easily one of the most comfortable P365 holsters, and one that you can just forget about while you wear it.
The Clinger No Print Wonder V3 can also be adjusted for cant and ride height. It’s an odd design admittedly, but it does work and was one of my first P365 holsters. It stays in the rotation in its OWB configuration which I really adore.
Crossbreed Pocket Rocket
The P365 sits at the exact right size for pocket carry. It’s a bit big for it, but the gun still fits in most men’s pockets. I can’t speak about the ladies since I’ve never had women’s pants on.
The Crossbreed Pocket Rocket (<-Crossbreed’s Website) is a hybrid design that facilitates simple and effective pocket carry. The leather backing is larger than your average pocket and it will stay in the pocket when the gun is drawn.
The leather backing is also soft against the skin and very comfortable for daily carry. It stays put inside the pocket and keeps it from moving around and causing chafing. The portion that carries the gun is a polymer shell like you’d find on a standard hybrid holster.
It protects the gun and makes it easy to unholster and to holster the weapon. It’s one of my favorite pocket P365 holsters and one of the highest quality on the market.
JM4 Tactical Quick Click and Carry
I actually own several different sizes of these holsters for many different guns. The cool thing about these, is that you can buy one holster that will fit a few different guns.
JM4 Tactical takes pride in the manufacturing process, the materials they use, and the final product is fantastic. In fact, I’ve never seen leather work so good with such precision stitching.
You can read my review on this holster here, and there are a few places you can buy them. You can shop their website, but it can be a bit hard to navigate to find the holster you want. So, I’ve been lately opting to shop the ConcealedCarry.com website, as they just started carrying the JM4 Tactical Holsters and it’s much easier to find the right size for the gun you’ve got.
All you have to do is choose your model from the drop down and you’re all set.
The SIG Sauer P365 is a real game changer, and even created a new category of pistol in the concealed carry market. That new category is being called high capacity micro compact, and there is no going back. I hope this helped you on your journey in deciding the best SIG p365 accessories, or the best SIG p365 holsters, that you can buy right now.
