After years of requests from our customers to build a Hybrid IWB Holster, we decided take the challenge of re-imagining Hybrid IWBs. Traditionally Hybrid IWB holsters suffer from excessive bulk and inconsistent retention. The Solace Hybrid IWB has addressed both those issues through CAD design and the inclusion of a inner retention point, offering full coverage of the trigger.
The Solace IWB is designed to fully enclose the trigger guard of your firearm. This means the gun is securely retained and will not easily fall out of the holster
The retention doesn’t change regardless of tension on the leather. This allows the holster to have the crisp snap characteristics that all other GunfightersINC products have. This eliminates the mushy and sticky feelings that many other Hybrid Holsters display.
It also means that there is zero gap around the trigger guard, preventing any foreign objects from contacting the trigger inadvertently.
The Solace is backed with a hand beveled 7oz American full grain cowhide. The leather is hand beveled and burnished for a smooth, comfortable backer finish. This leather will withstand years of sweat and wear. Using the power of CAD design we have biased the firearm to the front of the kydex shell. This eliminates pressure points against the hip and makes for a smooth, bulge free profile against the skin. This also helps with maintain a consistent draw pressure, regardless of belt tension.
The Solace was designed to be as low-profile and unobtrusive as possible. Unlike most hybrid holsters, the Solace has a footprint not much larger than the firearm, more in line with a “taco IWB” style Holster, like our Wraith. We have shrunk the holster down to the smallest size possible, using minimalist rivets and holding the tightest tolerances to the gun as possible.
The Solace is contoured to hold the firearm as close to the body as possible and minimize printing at all angles.
