Who? Another upstart holster maker, you say? Not at all. You know Black Arch by their now former name, SHTF Gear. They’ve just announced the new branding. Either way, they make top quality hybrid IWB holsters and leather mag carriers. And now they’ll also be sponsoring our Weekend Photo Caption Contest posts, giving you a chance to win one of their great rigs on a weekly basis. Here’s the story on the name change . . .
Logan, UT – SHTF Gear LLC, a manufacturer of hybrid holsters for concealed carry, announced today that it has changed its name to Black Arch Holsters.
“With current growth and plans for new products, the timing was finally right to act on plans to change the company name,” stated Clay Moultrie, president and founder.
The new name makes reference to the towering stone arches that are unique to the company’s home state of Utah. These natural arches were carved out of sandstone over thousands of years and are among the largest in the world. The name Black Arch pays homage to these silent giants who stand defiantly against all opposition and inspire greatness in design.
This change in name follows just weeks after the company announced that it had increased the size of its production facility by 33% in order to make room for new R&D equipment and a product showroom. This new equipment will allow the company to continue developing its current line of holsters while also pursuing new products.
“Expansion of its facility and development of new products won’t affect current lead times,” stated Moultrie. “Black Arch remains committed to producing the highest quality of holsters and offering a lead time of only 3-5 business days.”
Additionally, the lifetime warranties of all SHTF Gear branded products will be honored.
