New Fobus Polymer Inside the Waistband Holsters

wpid-2015-01-20_18.52.25.jpg

Israeli company Fobus launched their two new-for-2015 inside the waistband holsters. The injected polymer systems are designed to fit a wide range of firearms, belts, and body-types, and are built to be multi-firearm friendly. The idea is that a user can change which gun they’re carrying without changing the holster.

There are two models, the IWBL and the IWBS. The IWBS is built for concealed carry single-stack pistols, and is compatbile with Glock 42, Ruger LCP & LC9, Sig 938, Kel-Tec P32, Colt Mustang, Beretta Nano, Kimber Solo and others.

The IWBL is the larger model, built to retain full size defensive pistols like Glocks, Cz family firearms, Beretta PX4, H&K USP, S&W M&P, Sig 226, Springfield XD, Walther PPQ and similarly profiled double stack pistols.

The retention system uses tension formed between the belt and the body to hold against the neoprene backing locks the gun in place. This flexible inner lining is designed to hold the firearm firm while curving to fit the profile of the body. The outer polymer shell does not collapse after the gun is drawn, to make reholstering easy.

Because of the way this retention system works, the holster will not hold a firearm securely if it is not being worn. You’re supposed to put the holster on properly, then holster your pistol, not the other way around.

Both the full-size and compact-frame models are $39.99 and available from www.fobusholster.com

    At $40 and a “universal” fit, I almost feel like a hybrid IWB from Aliengear or even ebay for $30 would be a better choice. I guess if you have a pistol nobody makes an IWB holster for this could work.

    I’m a fan of Fobus for my range toys, and will defend them all day long, but I don’t see the market for this.

    the market is the guy who impulse buys a holster when he gets his new handgun at the local big box firearms retailer. Gander mountain will stock a crap ton of these next to all that “Universal” nylon.
