Boltaron seems to be the new hotness in holster materials. And that’s partially due to hotness. A number of makers have come out with Boltaron holsters recently, and that’s at least partially due to the material’s greater resistance to heat.
Texas-based JM4 Tactical combines the thermoformed polymer material with an internal layer of steer hide. That makes it easier on your pistol’s finish and quieter when drawing and re-holstering.
We have the IWB model in our hot little hands right now, so look for a review soon. In the mean time, here’s their press release . . .
JM4 Tactical Sews Molded Boltaron Polymer To Hermann Oak Leather
Creates Revolutionary New, Quiet Concealed Carry Gun Holster
Abilene, Texas — JM4 Tactical is proud to announce the release of their brand new patent pending gun holster: Reliable, Easy, Light, Individual, Carry, otherwise known as “RELIC.” RELIC revolutionizes concealed carry in that it adds the quiet delicateness of leather to a strong molded polymer called Boltaron.
JM4 Tactical uses a proprietary holster forming technology that allows them to combine these two, otherwise incompatible materials, to make one of the quietest, most durable gun holsters ever made.
Proudly made in the United States of America with massive support for hundreds of different gun models, JM4 Tactical is set to revolutionize the concealed carry world, yet again. And, they will do so with the launch of four different RELIC models:
- Tuckable IWB
Each model takes US-Manufactured Boltaron Polymer, and sews Hermann Oak Grade A U.S. Steerhide to the interior of the shell that not only protects the gun’s finish from harsh plastics, but also allows for quiet drawing and re-holstering.
Chad, co-owner of JM4 Tactical had this to say about why RELIC Holsters use both leather and the US made polymer known as Boltaron, “We have determined 3 major issues with traditional plastic holsters: deformation and cracking due to extreme temperatures, damage to the firearm due to the hard plastic, and they are just rather loud when holstering and unholstering the firearm. The RELIC Holster solves all of these problems.”
The new RELIC Holsters are now available in JM4 Tactical’s online store, and prices start at $94.97 for the Appendix, Tuckable IWB, and Paddle models, with the Hybrid coming in at $139.97.
