These models combine the best of existing leather and synthetic holster technologies into a holster that offers both traditional good looks and long-lasting high-performance.

The Bianchi Allusion series consists of three initial models: the Model 125 Consent, Model 130 Classified, and the Model 135 Suppression. All are formed with premium high-grade, full-grain leather, which is wrapped and laminated around a thermal-molded synthetic core. This synthetic liner promotes a very quick draw and effortless reholstering. Further, it resists wear during daily use. Each holster also houses a triggerguard detent for enhanced weapon retention, a feature that is not typically found on traditional leather holsters.

"With the Allusion series, we have combined tradition and technology for the 21st century," said James Dawson, Safariland Category Director for the Bianchi brand. "We've successfully integrated Bianchi's ingenuity in handcrafted leather design with the technological advances that Safariland has made with synthetic materials."

The Bianchi Model 125 Consent is an open-top holster with multi-carry capabilities. Dual snap belt loops offer a high-ride hip carry, and an extra set of belt loops allows the holster to be worn inside the waistband for more discreet carry. The triggerguard detent design helps to ensure secure carry during normal activity.

The Model 130 Classified features thumb break retention for those looking for an additional security measure in addition to the trigger guard detent. To maintain optimal flexibility in the thumb break, the strap is suede-lined, while the synthetic liner encompasses the rest of the holster.

The 135 Suppression features an inside-the-waistband design that is all about concealibility and comfort. Concealibility is obtained by the holster sitting low enough that the thickest part of the weapon lies directly underneath the belt, helping to obscure its shape. Meanwhile, two shirt-tuckable C-clips grasp the belt and, taking as little real estate as possible, give the appearance of an empty belt. The gun cant is optimized to put the grip into the kidney area of the back, minimizing any visible printing. Comfort is enhanced with a body-facing holster liner composed of soft foam covered with an anti-microbial mesh coating to reduce bacteria growth and odor.

All Allusion holsters are designed to fit 1.5 inch belt widths. Available in full-grain leather, plain finish, tan or black.
