DeSantis E-GAT Slide Holster

    DeSantis E-Gat

    DeSantis Gunleather introduced a new outside-the-waistband (OWB) belt slide holster called the E-GAT.  The E-GAT is a leather holster designed for both strong-side carry and cross-draw carry.

    The E-GAT is a straight draw holster, without any cant.  It is also an open top, which means there is not a thumb strap.  Other than friction, there is no other retention devices built into this scabbard.

    The new holster will be available for a wide range of handguns:

    • Glock 17, 19, 22, 23, 26, 27
    • S&W J-frame 36,37,60,317,331,337,360, 431PD 2 1/4″, M&P 360 2″
    • S&W M&P 9/40, M&P compact 9/40, M&P Shield 9/40
    • Taurus 85 2″
    • SIG Sauer P229, P229R
    • Ruger SR9/40, SR9/40C, LCR, LC9
    • Kahr K9, K40, P9, P40, MK9, MK40, PM9, PM40
    • 1911 – All Sizes 3.5″, 4″, 5″

    The E-GAT is reasonably priced for a leather holster, carrying an MSRP of $31.99.  According to DeSantis, the holster has a “plain black economy finished top grain leather,” suggesting that the leather and/or finishing work is not at the same standard normally seen with DeSantis’ work.
