Telor Tactical Holsters

Ankle Holster

Telor Tactical is a small company that is taking an innovative approach to existing holster designs.  The company currently offers an ankle holster, bodyband holster and a thigh holster that use some non-traditional materials to improve comfort and carry.

David Leverett, the managing partner of Telor Tactical, has a background in the medical device industry that gives him a fresh perspective on what materials work best for increasing comfort.  One of the key materials used is something called Sil-Air, a silicone-foam padding used in cushions to reduce pressure ulcers in patients.

The Sil-Air material is soft, and it is very porous, allowing for good airflow.  It is also odor resistant and machine washable.

After reading about the holsters and talking to Leverett by phone, I ordered (at full retail price) several of their products including the ankle holster.  My purchase arrived in three days.

My initial impression is that the Telor Tactical products are good quality and extremely comfortable.  I’ve worn an ankle holster for much of my adult life carrying both a S&W 642 and Glock 27 in them.  I’ve tried a variety of ankle rigs, but the Telor Tactical rig definitely seems to be the most comfortable.

I’m going to use these products more before I give them a complete thumbs up, but so far I am impressed.

The ankle rig retails for $34.95.  The bodyband goes for $29.95 – $34.95 depending on size.  The thigh holster runs $29.95.  The company also sells a few other products including a slip-on recoil pad, deer stand cushion and gun mat.

    I am wary of the durability of silicon foam but otherwise their productslook resonably well designed. however anckle and stapped tightly to you thoigh holster will never be as confortable as tradtional IWB holster no matter what matrial is used

      I’m curious what your concern with silicon foam rubber’s
      durability is? I have quite a bit of experience using various types/thicknesses
      of closed- and open-cell silicone foam rubber in some pretty demanding environments
      (insulation on heat exchangers, interface/damping material used between
      fixturing and explosive charges in pyroshock testing, etc.) and have always
      been pretty impressed by its durability. Most formulations are pretty
      chemically inert, exhibit minimal outgassing even under extreme temps in a
      space vacuum, have a surprising abrasion resistance, can withstand a wide range
      of temperatures with little change in mechanical properties and so on. I have
      no experience with the specific material referred to here (or at least do not
      recognize trade name used), and am not discounting your concerns. There could
      certainly be aspects of this I am overlooking or first-hand experiences you
      have that differ from mine. I’m just curious what your specific worries are?

        I have used weighted vests that used almost exclusively that material and the individual pockets would rub off at the armpit and pectoral area exposing the weights and turning an overpriced vest into an overpriced vest that causes chafing. It’s not really verifiable proof that this stuff is totally useless it just makes me less than absolutely certain of this product also I am also a “Crossbreed” fan boy so I have been indoctrinated
        to say that all other holsters are for women and weakling’s
