The Enigma from PHLster holsters isn’t just another IWB holster. Rather, it’s a whole new category of concealed-carry gear. Enigma is the world’s first concealment chassis, giving you excellent concealment, stability and performance without relying on a belt to stabilize your gear. The Enigma uses high-tech materials to turn your favorite Kydex holster into an ultra-low-profile concealment system that’s completely independent of your clothing.  

Enigma’s chassis means you can train hard, fight hard and live how you want, while knowing your gun will stay put. The heart of the Enigma is its winged faceplate, made from an ultralight, high-strength woven polymer laminate, which stabilizes your gun without adding bulk to the front of the holster.  Thanks to its unobtrusive adjustable leg-leash, the Enigma stays in place during repeated drawing and reholstering, and the Kydex holster shell stays open, which allows for safe one-handed reholstering. 

The Enigma is optimized for the PHLster Pro Series, but it will also fit other AIWB holsters that use a Modwing, Darkwing, Raven Concealment wing or other IWB concealment wing with a 5/8ths on-center hole spacing.

The Enigma is a no-compromise concealed-carry solution that eliminates the worry of “dressing around the gun” or using a smaller gun to deal with the challenges of concealed carry. The 12-point adjustable Enigma platform allows you to fine-tune concealment in ways that aren’t possible with conventional carry methods.

The Enigma belt is made from Mil-Spec 17337 webbing, with a Fidlock magnet-assisted buckle for security and convenience. The buckle attachment to the face-plate is lined to help prevent direct contact between the buckle and the body. The buckle attachment also allows you to hot-swap the Fidlock for your choice of buckle and will accommodate any 1.5-inch buckle you prefer, including Cobra buckles.

MSRP for the Enigma without a holster shell is $85. For more information on this product and other gear from PHLster, please visit phlster.com.
