BLUE FORCE GEAR ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster

January 16th, 2017

The Blue Force Gear Pocket Holster is the company’s first foray into the everyday carry (EDC) market. The manufacturer of battle-tested weapon slings and battle equipment has used its revolutionary field gear development experience to create the ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster.

Designed with Blue Force Gear’s proprietary high-performance laminate called ULTRAcomp, the new EDC pocket holster exceeds military standard materials in tear and abrasion resistance while remaining versatile and ultra lightweight for the carrier. ULTRAcomp removes extra bulk while solidly securing and concealing a pocket pistol, creating the thinnest pocket holster available today.

By reducing the weight and bulk over a standard pocket holster, the ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster provides additional comfort to the carrier and protects both the weapon and interior of the pocket. The secure weapon positioning that the holster provides ensures safe and accurate grip and weapon removal from its pocket holster.

The Blue Force Gear ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster is available to fit the SIG SAUER® P238/938, KIMBER® MICRO, GLOCK® 42, and RUGER® LCP® / LCP2.

Find technical specs and see a demonstration of Blue Force Gear’s new ULTRAcomp Pocket Holster and other innovative products in booth 31209 at SHOT Show in Las Vegas from Jan. 17–20.
