FALCO Holsters Versatile Rotating Shoulder Holsters Perfect for EDC

Wednesday, March 27th, 2024

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – March 25, 2024 – FALCO® Holsters, a global leader in crafting bespoke leather holsters, reveals its latest innovation in shoulder holsters designed to enhance concealed carry experiences. The new collection features the handcrafted leather D131 and D231 Roto Shoulder Holsters and the D901 Hybrid Roto Shoulder Holster, offering versatility and efficiency for everyday carry needs.

Katarína Zacharová, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at FALCO Holsters, explains, “The light-bearing full leather version of our highly successful Roto Shoulder system has been eagerly anticipated and reflects our dedication to prioritizing customer feedback.” She emphasizes the unique features of these shoulder holsters, stating, “Our shoulder holster line stands out for its interchangeability, allowing all configurations to integrate into a single harness system seamlessly.”

Zacharová states, “This adaptability offers unmatched convenience, accommodating diverse carry preferences and many firearm combinations. Whether you’re switching between firearm models or adjusting for different scenarios, our holsters provide an effortless transition. For instance, switching from carrying your .45 caliber 2011 with a weapon-mounted light in full leather today to a .380 semi-auto in the hybrid leather/Kydex holster version tomorrow is as easy as detaching the customized holster from the adjustable leather harness and replacing it with the holster tailored to a different firearm.”

FALCO’s Roto Shoulder Holsters boast a rotating function, enabling a vertical carry position for a sleek profile and ergonomic draw even with full-sized handguns. Zacharová explains, “When you’re ready to draw, simply unsnap the security strap, and the holster rotates to an angle that promotes a more comfortable grip and rapid draw. The holster incorporates a leather security strap designed to be released by the forefinger and adjustable leather belt tie-down straps to keep your firearm in place. Strategically placed spaces in the leather harness allow extensive size adjustment to fit the harness to your body type. Combined with the leather harness, everyday carriers enjoy balanced weight distribution of the handgun and magazines for all-day comfort.”

T.REX ARMS Releases the New Ironside Hybrid Holster

Tuesday, March 19th, 2024

T.REX ARMS is pleased to announce the new “Ironside Hybrid Holster”, which utilizes our existing outside-the-waistband Ironside holster and converts it to a very comfortable inside-the-waistband rig with tuckable clips. The backer is made out of Alcantara and foam layers fused together to create a waterproof, sturdy, but comfortable pad enabling easy carry at the 3-4 o’clock position.

This hybrid style holster improves upon existing hybrid options, by maintaining complete Kydex coverage of the weapon for better performance and increased retention of weapon lights. It introduces a breathable, washable, rigid yet soft pad that brings all the strengths and none of the weaknesses of alternative hybrid backer materials.

The Ironside Hybrid Backer is compatible with all existing Ironside holsters and can be purchased as a standalone item. It allows users to switch from an OWB Ironside set up, which is ideal for concealment under jackets and winter wear, to an IWB system that is better suited for lighter summer wear.

Like all T.REX ARMS holsters, the Ironside and its backer are manufactured entirely in the USA: built to order in our Middle Tennessee facility, subjected to rigorous quality control procedures, and backed by a limited lifetime warranty and our world-class customer support team.

Raven Concealment Redefines Concealed Carry with Executive Select Series

Monday, March 18th, 2024

North Ridgeville, OH – March 18th, 2024 | FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Raven Concealment Systems has launched its Executive Select Series, a new line of super-premium holsters that promises to redefine concealed carry standards. This series marks a significant shift in holster design. Unlike traditional designs, the Executive Select series prioritizes human fitment over firearm geometry. This results in increased concealment and greater comfort.

They’ve returned to the drawing board and revisited the root problems of concealed carry. The common adage says, “Form follows function.” Unfortunately, this is often not the case with manufacturing, especially with holsters. In a perfect world, a holster’s “form” would follow the “function” of optimal concealment, comfort, and accessibility.

Instead, holsters are often nothing more than shells in the shape of the gun they are designed to hold. This rigid approach follows the form of the handgun. That rigidity results from the limitations of their construction. The Executive Select Series is looking to turn that all on its head and put the focus on the end user.

Human-Centered Design: Designed to prioritize comfort and concealment, contouring to the wearer’s body.

Premium Quality: Seamless fit and finish for a premium concealed carry experience.

Innovative Holster Shape: The holster’s body shape eliminates the need for “claws” to tuck grip.

Modular Carry: Ability to nest other essential carry items within void spaces inside the body of the holster

RCS has continued advancing its manufacturing capabilities, and this new line embraces those latest innovations.  This new approach is granting them unprecedented design freedom, and one of the benefits is that it allows them to create holsters tailored to the wearer’s anatomy. Based on what we saw and heard back in January at SHOT, they have a LOT more of the Executive series to show off soon.

Tuesday, March 12th, 2024

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – March 11, 2024 – Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, has updated its popular Stache IWB line of holsters with a new Mag Adapter Wing to let the operator customize the ride angle for the spare magazine carrier.

Made of durable polymer, the Mag Adapter Wing kit comes with two different wings, one 25º and one 15º, to give the operator choices to best fit personal carry style. Both Mag Adapter Wings are drop-in and require no special tools for installation.

“The Stache IWB has been an incredibly popular holster amongst serious concealed carriers. The value that it brings to the table distilled into such a simple, comfortable, and practical way makes it a no-brainer for serious concealed carriers,” said Liam Yarbrough, Senior Product Manager at Blackhawk. “We noticed customer feedback that the old-design Mag Adapter Wing didn’t feel very strong, so we beefed it up a little more and went with fixed angles to ensure stability.”

The new Mag Adapter Wing Kit is included with all Stache IWB Premium holsters. To see the full line of Stache IWB holsters with Mag Adapter Wings, including new models to fit the Glock 26, Springfield Hellcat Pro and Sig P365X-Macro, visit www.Blackahwk.com.

Introducing the Kompakt Holster

Tuesday, March 12th, 2024

Antimatter Industries presents a next gen appendix holster: the Kompakt. Utilizing a unibody design instead of the traditional clamshell kydex build, the Kompakt is 20-40% smaller than traditional appendix holsters with a mag carrier.

The holster features a Discreet Carry™ steel belt clip and an adjustable claw for better retention.The most consistent feedback received from testers is that the Kompakt is the smallest and most comfortable appendix rig they’ve ever tried.

The Kompakt is built for the Streamlight™ TLR-7 Sub™ and will work with or without the Antimatter Wing (a flip out thumb ledge). The Kompact is available in two options for the most popular EDC compact pistols: The Sig™ p365 (all variants) and Glock™ 43x/48 and the Springfield™ Hellcat.
