Reduced Sized Buckle kit

The Reduced Sized Buckle kit is an Enigma optimization for users with a sub 30 inch waist, or for those who want to reduce the span of the buckle in order to accommodate additional gear items. This steel slider buckle eliminates the quick-connect feature of the Fidlock Magnetic Buckle in favor of a 3 inch reduction in buckle span.
Use the original screw, finish washer, neoprene spacer, and post, included in the Enigma hardware kit, to attach the Reduced Sized Buckle to the Enigma faceplate.

    First impressions are stellar – I’ll be doing a proper review writeup on my website soon (, but initial impressions are that this system is comfortable, extremely effective (even in sweatpants) and very adjustable.

    You’ll definitely need to watch the assembly and adjustment videos carefully, but once you understand how it works, it’s a very impressive system, and I believe it’ll really change how concealed carry is done going forward.

    Had the enigma for just over 2 weeks now.
    Fit and finish is phenomenal. Sooo many adjustment points make it easy to tailor to your specific shape and build.
    And can conceal pretty much any gun.
    I’ve carried my Glock 19, 43x and 48.
    With the 43x and 48 it’s like unlocking a cheat code. The gun disappears and you almost forget you’re wearing it!
    I actually napped on the couch the other day while wearing the enigma paired with phlster pro on my couch.
    All in all a great purchase and I will be buying another on the next release!

    1. Viewing the PHLster video on setup is a prerequisite for assembly, at least it was for me. Took a lot of guesswork out of how the bits go together.

    2. “Game changer” sounds like hype. It is not hype. It’s really surprising how well getting the rig independent of the trouser/belt combination works for AIWB.

    3. One mag on an external looped or clipped carrier works fine with the Enigma belt. You can, however, run whatever you want on a regular gun belt over the Enigma rig, up to and including a complete OWB and double mag carrier, with no consequences (for my build- 34 waist, 44 chest, 6’ 185 lbs). I can run a VP9 with RMR in a PHLster Classic on the Enigma rig and a VP9 or P30 OWB at 3 o’clock with no consequences to comfort. Or a pair of VP9’s, or a pair of P30’s, one in the AIWB on the Enigma and one OWB at 3’oclock. The possibilities are endless. The key is that the gun belt is no longer such a big part of the AIWB fit equation, so AIWB comfort isn’t compromised for proper OWB tension when wearing two guns.

    4. I’m not sure the leash is actually needed in a configuration with a regular gun belt over trousers. Obviously it has its utility for sweatpants, etc.

    5. Dammit, I should have bought two when my order window opened up. Back on the list, so I can set one up for a different pistol.

    This product is amazing! This has to be one of the best, most comfortable Setups I have worn. This rig takes some trial abs error to get it setup right for you. Be sure to follow the video instructions (YouTube) and you will have now issues. If you have any questions, check out the PHLster Concealment Workshop group, on Facebook.

    I’m a 5’9” woman who weights… let’s just say there’s more to love. I’m not obese, but my tummy has always been an issue with concealment in the past; I was wearing V Development Groups Meg belt with a Tenicor Velo 4 with an additional yoga block wedge added. I was able to conceal it under certain tops, but it was limited.

    I’ve been wearing the Enigma with my Glock 26 in the PHLster Pro for about 2 weeks now, and I absolutely love it. It hides under everything, and after one little adjustment, I barely notice it’s there. I have to wear an undershirt or bandeau bra between my skin and the belt, because the bottom edge of the Enigma faceplate eventually started causing some discomfort on my thigh when sitting, and the belt… well, I’m not sure I’ve worn a belt directly against my skin that was ever comfortable for long periods of time! But I’ve figured those things out, and now I’m able to conceal in pretty much every outfit I’ve tried, sitting, standing, walking. It definitely lives up to the hype! Just be sure you take the time to figure out your hole placement, and if you have any issues with printing, join the Facebook group for really great, quick feedback on what to tweak.

    As a left-handed user, I’ve found the ENIGMA, after only a two day period of experimentation and adjustment, to be stable, accessible, comfortable and eminently concealable.

    While it can be readily used with any sort of regular pants, it excels for CCW with beltless shorts or exercise pants, since it doesn’t depend upon the wearing of any sort of standard belt. All that’s required, as with any sort of AIWB concealment, is some type of short cover garment.

    Now that I’ve vetted this first example with carry of a Glock 26/19, I’ve put myself on the list for a second one.
    It’s a significant improvement over all the other existing methods of CCW in the AIWB position.

  7. Frank Xx (verified owner)

    Versatile yet simple to use, a bit of set up and experimenting is required as all body types, lifestyles, holsters and garment selections vary. Once that’s done you can wear a firearm with or with out pants. That opens all kinds of cover garments which truly conceals the firearm and any generalizations the public has for what those who carry wear and look like.
    Thank you Phlster team for amazing product as even more so for you constant engagement with past customers and helping them with their products. Soaks volumes. The take your money and check out FAQ type companies should be taking notice.

    An excellent replacement for my old Franken-bellyband. For years, I was hoping something like this would come along. The materials are all hight quality and the instructions that were emailed to me were easy to understand and withing 10 minutes I had everything adjusted for my body and a solid rig.

    Concealment is the best I’ve seen yet and the quick attach/detach clip is impressive. I’ve been using the Enigma for over a week with a holster I made myself and it’s the easiest and most comfortable carry I’ve tried.

  9. alan-5760 (verified owner)

    A truly well-designed, well-constructed and innovative design that suits my active lifestyle. I can use this product while exercising, being active while tending to my very active family, and all without having to wear a belt. PHLSTER’s ability to think outside the box is exceeded only by their mastery of what works for concealment, and their constant efforts to better themselves. There is no perfect product, but this one could serve many, who truly care about about concealing their capabilities and their intentions. Bravo! Well done!

    I can finally carry in dress clothes. Magical.

  11. TIM.C.WILLIS (verified owner)

    Working from home and then hitting the gym used to require putting pants or shorts with a belt on just to get to leave the house. NOT ANYMORE. I have been in sweats and gym shorts pretty much everyday since I got it. Fantastic product that does more than just let you wear clothes without a belt. The ability to setup the gun for maximum consistency has done wonders for my draw time on my P365XL. Pairs well with the P365 Pro Holster. 5/5 stars absolutely recommend.

  12. zsn232 (verified owner)

    The Enigma is a game changer to concealed carry. I use a Phlster pro series for my P365. I wore the pro series on a belt before a received the enigma. I am able to achieve increased comfort because I can position the holster independent of my belt line and pants. Not only that, but I can wear this system with whatever clothes I choose, not limited to having to have a good gun belt on.
    I am able to get better concealment because I can choose the best mounting holes for ideal grip rotation. I have less printing than I did using a belt.
    If you are serious about EDC you need to try the Enigma.
    One tip I would add, is get a second holster so that if there is a day you want to carry on a belt you don’t need to take apart your set up (a perfect reason to get a Phlster or similar holster if you don’t have one!)

  13. lloyd.ashton.sullivan (verified owner)

    More concealable than anything else I’ve tried by a mile. The setup is a little long, but is totally worth it and not sure it could be much reduced without taking features away from the product.

  14. Mike Hyman (verified owner)

    What a game changer. I was already running a Pro Series holster for my M18 and finally got the Engima. I have worn this daily and love it. it is super comfortable. Takes a little to find your sweet spot on proper screw placement to fit your body. Once you find that sweet spot it is amazing. I am finally able to wear gym pants again when I go out and not always having to wear jeans and worry about a belt.
    Only downside I can say is now i really need to buy another one to fit my Glock holster so this way I dont have to take it apart each time I want to carry my glock.

  15. Rob (verified owner)

    This system is incredible. The Enigma took a little dialing-in over the first couple days, but as they say, “the juice is worth the squeeze.” I have worn my full size Glock with everything from lacrosse shorts to dress attire, including a tucked in shirt. I have a small child and even while carrying, I have no trouble or discomfort while chasing her around, bending over to pick her up, getting up and down off the floor and furniture. No matter what I do, it’s always right where it’s supposed to be.
    I almost gave it four stars only because I’ve been having trouble carrying it in a deep-concealment configuration. I tried getting that to work over a week +, and couldn’t get it right. I’m contributing more of this to my size, the holster I have attached to the Enigma, and the clothes I need to wear when carrying deep-concealment.
    Overall, this is an incredible product that I am enjoying immensely.

  16. abrianneharmon (verified owner)

    This device offers an incredible amount of confidence while carrying! The platform is extremely stable, and since it is independent of pants and belt, it is also extremely consistent. Solid, fuss-free draws every time! I have it paired with my Tulster OATH holster and P365, and it works like a dream. I highly recommend this product for the ladies! I am an Asian woman with a stereotypically small frame (5’3″ / 112-116 lbs), and I have been absolutely delighted with how good the concealment is (like really, SOOOO GOOOD), and how comfortable the Enigma is to wear. No bulges, no belts, no clips showing, nothing! It is truly the gun-loving woman’s best friend! I suppose really the only issue I have run into with it is the question of where to put my extra mag, but there are many work-arounds for that problem, and it ultimately does not affect my decision to carry in the PHLSTER Enigma DAILY!!!!

  17. jeffbowler (verified owner)

    Incredible! After waiting a few months for the Enigma to become available, I was not disappointed when it finally arrived. I set up the Enigma, using the online videos, for my Sig Sauer P229, one of the larger guns I carry. It took a few adjustments, and now I cannot imagine carrying a handgun concealed any other way. If you want to carry small or bigger guns, the Enigma is the way to go.

  18. scottstallkamp (verified owner)

    Awesome product, especially for those of us who may carry in a non permissible environment. Easy to set up and is very customizable. It makes carrying an all steel commander size gun a breeze.

  19. Nicholas McKean (verified owner)

    Incredible. Take a while to get setup. Once it is setup, for you, for your gun, for your holster, it’s magical. Amazing online support from the Community me the Company. Will NOT be my last Phlster product.

  20. lauraespath (verified owner)

    Absolutely incredible!! I am a women with an already fluffy tummy so the last thing I wanted was the added bulk of a belly band. There were previously no good carry options for women in the types of clothes I wear most Realistically I am not gonna wear traditional pants and a belt daily and so I was using things like a sticky holster previously. The sticky holster wasnt very secure and I was constantly worried about it flopping out. After finding out about Enigma I purchased one as quick as I could. I have only had it for a fed days and already can tell what a game changer it is for me. Today I wore leggings and a top all day and was able to carry comfortingly. My first full day with it I forgot I had it on half the time. It adds no bulk and is very easily concealed.
    *I was intimidated to set it up at first however watching the instructional videos made it very easy for me.

    TMI: Carrying as a women and going to the bathroom is such a pain!!! Now I can just leave it on and am not slowed down at all.
