Front Line Holsters is a company that has been acknowledged for their holster quality and creativity world-wide. The Israeli Secret Service employs Front Line Holsters as well as Israeli S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams. The police from the island country of Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean also trust Front Line holsters for duty. The holsters they make are not run-of-the-mill or cheap in any way. They are a higher-end fabricator of holsters and it shows in their work.
While many holster companies pigeon hole themselves by only making kydex holsters or leather or nylon, Front Line has mastered multiple materials and combines them in many of their products to offer the best solutions for carry possible. Some of those materials are as follows:
- KNG (proprietary to ONLY Front Line Holsters – Kordura/Next Generation)
The ability to meld multiple materials together provides users with a much better end product. Front Line Holsters does this throughout all of the different holster and carry options they offer. It does not end at a simple hip holster. It covers the entire gamut of their product offerings which can be read below:
- IWB (Inside-the-Waistband)
- OWB (Outside-the-Waistband)
- Dual Holster for OWB & IWB
- Tuckable Options for IWB for greater concealment
- Drop Leg/Thigh
- Shoulder Holster Units
- Belt Rigs
- Magazine Carriers
By working in so many materials into so many carry options they produce some of the best holster options for civilians and law enforcement around the world. As evident in Cyprus, Israel, and other countries adopting their products. Often it is in the finer details that can give you a great appreciation for what they are doing. In some of their holsters for example, you have the ability to adjust for the width of your belt and the cant or angle at which it sits on your hip. An example of this can be seen below.
In other products of theirs they have something called an Alpha Lining for an easier insertion and extraction of your firearm. While most holsters on the market do a decent job of holstering your firearm and retaining it from falling out, if you cannot equally draw your pistol with ease, what’s the point of carrying? So with the Alpha Lining you can more easily insert and extract your firearm when necessary as seen below.
I, personally, cover a lot of holster products and companies as well as have a closet full of them at home. Its not often that a company impresses me with something new or better craftsmanship, but Front Line has definitely done that. What do our readers think though?
