Subcompact pistols are becoming one of the most popular options for today’s concealed carriers and with the onset of that popularity comes a need for concealment holsters. Safariland is rising to meet this need with the 575 Slim Pro-Fit Holster. The new holster has great features like its GLS (Grip Locking System), multi-fit capability, and red dot optic readiness.
Safariland’s New 575 Slim IWB Holster for Subcompact Handguns
Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland®, a brand of TheSafariland Group, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today announced new 575 Slim Pro-Fit™ holsters equipped with Safariland’s Grip Locking System (GLS™). The new 575 Slim extends the availability of the popular holster design to subcompact pistols.
“The new 575 Slim builds on the success of our robust 575 in-waistband design,” said Eric Gasvoda, Vice President and General Manager for The Safariland Group duty gear division. “The new 575 models are built for the smaller 9mms and other pistols designed for everyday carry. With Safariland’s GLS retention and the 575’s ease of concealment, this is a great way to secure your carry gun so it is ready and accessible when you need it most.”
The new 575 Slim IWB GLS Pro-Fit holster provides a fully adjustable cant and offers the unique Grip Locking System which secures the firearm once holstered. The retention of the GLS is deactivated with the middle finger while taking a shooting grip during the draw. The body is SafariSeven™, a proprietary nylon blend that is non-abrasive to a firearm’s finish and maintains very high heat tolerance as well as low cold tolerance. This holster comes with two belt loop options based on preference (over or under the belt). Its low-cut and compact design makes concealment easy while also allowing for a quick draw.

The new 575 Slim is designed for the GLOCK 43, 43X and 48, Springfield Armory Hellcat and XD-S, Sig Sauer P365/P365X, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield/Shield +, and similarly sized pistols.
I have a growing number of pistols that all fall into the category of subcompact and I already have a box of holsters that don’t get enough use as it is. With the 575 Slim, it will be nice to be able to use a single concealment holster. The 575 Slim currently fits many of the popular subcompacts like the Glock 43X/48, SIG P365/365X, Smith & Wesson Shield/Shield Plus, and Springfield Armory Hellcat.
The only pistol that is currently missing from this category is the recently released Ruger MAX-9, perhaps an update for the 575 Slim can be expected sometime down the road. The Safariland 575 Slim is available now in both left and right-hand draw styles for $68.00.
