The Lore Behind Valhalla’s Hylja Glock 23 IWB Holster
When Valhalla Shooting Supply set out to create our business, we always had the intention of crafting products of our own. We started our journey creating Kydex gun holsters for both every day carry & competitive shooting, and we’ve had plenty of time to perfect it since. The first product that we ever made ourselves is this Hylja Glock 23 IWB holster. After all this time, you could say this one is like our firstborn child. We spent a ton of time perfecting this Hylja Glock 23 IWB holster, from getting the retention points just right, to adding adjustability, to testing the best possible belt clips, we labored over the design.
Over time, our design got better and better. While we certainly don’t ever get complacent with our Hylja Glock 23 IWB holsters, we truly believe we have come to develop one of the best concealed carry holsters for the handgun owners on the market today. Every single Hylja Glock 23 IWB holster is handmade in the USA using our proprietary manufacturing methods. This allows for the best possible repeatability in our design, while also allowing for us to fine-tune each Hylja G23 IWB holster. While our background is in engineering (specifically design & manufacturing processes), our passion lies in the shooting industry. We use our own designs for our own EDC far before they ever go up for sale, meaning we have time to perfect them before you ever see them.
Features Of Our Hylja Glock 23 Kydex IWB Holster
Throughout their legendary time, Vikings were never an army that featured a standard battle kit for every warrior. They often carried their own weapons & armor, customized to their own unique fighting style. Combined with skilled fighting ability, this led to each warrior knowing exactly what worked best for them, and being able to maximize its effectiveness.
Our goal with the Hylja Glock 23 IWB Holster from Valhalla Shooting Supply is to give you that same customizability with your firearm.

About The Glock 23
Chambered in the ever-popular .40 Caliber, the Glock 23 is a very popular concealed carry weapon. Considered a compact pistol, it allows for minimal printing and great characteristics for concealment. However, the Glock 23 utilizes a double stack magazine as opposed to a single stack magazine. This makes some shooters opt for a more concealable profile, but for many shooters it still does the trick. Production first began on the Glock 23 in 1990.
Those that choose to stay prepared commonly choose to carry the Glock 23 as their every day carry weapon. Considered a compact version of the Glock 22, the Glock 23 conceals well – especially those with slightly larger frames. To learn more about the Glock 23, check out Glock’s website here.
