Crossbreed Belly Band 2.0

Crossbreed Holsters is releasing an updated version of their original modular bellyband holster system, the Crossbreed Modular Belly Band. The Crossbreed Modular Belly Band 2.0 raises the Crossbreed Belly Band concept to another level via a new wave of features not seen on the original.

The most notable feature found on the Crossbreed Modular Belly Band 2.0 is its outer polyester jersey shell that is designed to provide a soft form fitting feel and comfort to the wearer on their skin. Its materials offer breathability for carry in warmer weather or while performing active tasks such as yardwork or exercise. This jersey also includes an antimicrobial treatment that lasts 25 hand washing cycles. The band on the Modular Belly Band 2.0 system also comes with additional pockets that allow the wearer to stow items such as a cell phone and additional ammunition magazines. The band is also stitched with anti-slip panels to help keep everything in place for optimal concealment as the wearer goes about their day.

The Modular Belly Band 2.0 is paired with Crossbreed’s Modular Holsters; these holsters are designed with a gun-specific kydex shell that attaches to a leather backing panel that has a Velcro hooking arrangement on its backside. This hooking system integrates with Velcro loops found on the Modular Belly Band 2.0. That the mounting surface uses a Velcro system also means that each individual carrier is free to tweak and position their chosen carry gear to fit their needs and lifestyle. Crossbreed Holsters also offers a two week trial period that allows wearers to test the Modular Belly Band 2.0 for themselves without feeling pressured to purchase it from the get-go. These are just a portion of the firearms that will work with the Modular Belly Band 2.0 system"
