Yawn. Another Kydex hybrid holster, right? Only this one isn’t really the same all the others. If you read our review of the StealthGear USA’s ONYX IWB holster, you know that StealthGear uses a breathable backing that makes toting a shootin’ iron all day – especially in warmer climes – much more comfy. Now StealthGear has added to their Ventcore-backed product line with an appendix carry option. Retail price: $79. Press release after the jump . . .
(American Fork, Utah, USA – October 16, 2014) The latest addition to the growing SGUSA product line utilizing the proprietary breathable VentCore™ platform is a new appendix carry (AIWB) holster. The AIWB holster expands upon StealthGearUSA’s unique ONYX™ IWB holster, created and refined by SGUSA Founder and Chairman Paul Laemmlen, that features a patented breathable VentCore™ platform that sets the industry standard for comfort, breathability, and safety and overcomes many limitations and problems with traditional leather and other hybrid holsters.
As with the ONYX™ IWB holster, the AIWB holster is completely custom designed and hand-crafted around each specific gun model and manufactured in the USA. While industry norms often use the same backing for many different gun models, the SGUSA VentCore™ platform is redesigned for each model, providing every customer a custom fit holster for his or her needs. Industry reviews underscore that the VentCore™ platform is the “next step” in a comfortable, breathable concealment solution. As with the flagship ONYX™ holster, all SGUSA holster platforms also provide the ultimate in safety and combat readiness with complete trigger guard protection and feature Kydex® shells that completely cover the muzzle to ensure complete control and protection of the firearm.
The SGUSA AIWB holster also comes with a durable plastic clip system with multiple mounting hole options providing a great fit whether carrying the firearm higher or deeper into the beltline. A further innovation in the SGUSA AIWB holster is that the clips are mounted to the side of the barrel, just above the sight channel, minimizing the bulge of the holster while also allowing the holster to rotate up away from the user’s leg when sitting for long periods of time or squatting. This unique “on-the-fly adjustability” is a huge plus over other non-adjustable AIWB holsters.
With the introduction of its new Appendix Carry holster, SGUSA has once again created the newest and best standards of hybrid holster construction. With other innovative products on the horizon, StealthGearUSA is dedicated to enhance the comfort and safety of the CCW community and further advance modern holster and stealth accesories technology.
