Safariland is coming out with a new 575 Slim Pro-Fit holster that is equipped with Safariland’s Grip Locking System (GLS) retention device. The new 575 Slim extends the availability of this popular holster design into the world of 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 9 mms 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 is fully adjustable for cant and has the unique Grip Locking System, which secures the firearm once holstered. The retention of the GLS is deactivated with the middle finger while creating your shooting grip during the draw. The body of the holster is made from SafariLand’s SafariSeven nylon blend that is non-abrasive and yet still maintains very high heat tolerance and low cold tolerance. The holster comes with the option to mount it either over or under the belt, based on your preference, and its low-cut and compact design makes concealment easy while also allowing for a quick draw.

Features: 

  • GLS secures the holstered firearm
  • Designed to fit multiple firearms in one holster with one tension adjustment
  • Low-cut compact design for ease of concealment
  • Inside-the-waist for deep concealment
  • Two belt loop options available based on preference (under and over the belt)
  • Fully adjustable cant
  • Optic Capable

 

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. MSRP for the 575 GLS Slim Pro-fit is $55.00, and more information on this product as well as other gear from Safariland is available at safariland.com.
