First Look: Galco Holsters for Summertime Carry

posted on August 14, 2020

Keeping your defensive pistol near you can be a challenge in the sticky summer heat. Lighter, more revealing cover garments are the norm, and the scorching heat can make carrying even the lightest pistol seem like an unbearable burden. While carrying a gun may be less comfortable in these times, it is not the time to go unarmed. Galco helps you stay armed in the summer heat with three moisture-resistant, ultra-low-maintenance IWB holsters.

The new Paragon holster from Galco offers comfortable carry, very fast draw and easy return to the holster. The Paragon is optimized for appendix carry with dual tuckable belt clips on the holster ride in slots fore and aft of the gun body and allow for wide adjustment for both ride height and carry angle. Raised sweat guards on both sides of the holster protect the wearer’s body from the gun and promote a smooth and safe return to the holster. The holster is cut low to accommodate most carry-style red dot sights and includes an optional claw-type stabilizing wing. MSRP starts at $79.

The Triton 2.0 holster is fast on the draw, slender in profile, and easy to conceal. The Kydex body of the holster allows for a smooth return to the holster after the draw, while the raised sweat guard protects the pistol from corrosive perspiration, and also protects the wearer’s skin from hard, uncomfortable steel. The Triton 2.0’s tuckable belt clips are adjustable for cant, which makes it suitable for the strongside, crossdraw, or appendix carry positions. MSRP starts at $69.

The Corvus quickly and easily converts from a belt holster to an inside-the-waistband design. With an open top for fast draw, adjustment for ride height and cant, and comfortable forward molding, the highly versatile Corvus is a great holster choice for defensive carry. The Kydex body on the Corvus is easily convertible to a highly concealable IWB holster, and the modern layout is designed to accommodate most carry-style red dot sights.  MSRP starts at $84.
