First Look: Galco Ankle Glove Holster for Kimber K6s Revolver

posted on December 21, 2020

Many gun owners make it a priority to carry a second or backup handgun. Guns are mechanical devices that can fail, and if they fail when they’re needed the most, it can have very serious consequences. However, space on your waistline is limited, and finding a good spot on your gun belt can be a challenge. This is where a good ankle holster can help. An ankle holster keeps your backup safely out of sight until it’s needed, and they are particularly useful for gun carriers who are seated for much of the day.

Galco is known for making a variety of holsters, including ankle holsters, and now their premium option is the renowned Ankle Glove, which is available for the extremely popular Kimber K6s 2-inch revolver. The one-two punch of a Galco Ankle Glove and Kimber K6S 2-inch revolver are an attractive option for people who want to carry a backup gun without carrying a lot of excess weight.

The Ankle Glove's wide, breathable neoprene ankle band and hook-and-loop closure offer the user extended wearing comfort and unmatched security. Sheepskin padding between the holster and ankle greatly enhances wearer comfort when worn for extended hours, keeping your legs cool even in the summer heat. The Ankle Glove also features a reinforced thumb break for speed of draw and detailed molding for firearm retention, and the premium steerhide holster pocket construction ensures great looks and long-term durability.

The Ankle Glove may be worn with or without the optional adjustable calf strap that is sold separately. The standard Ankle Glove accommodates ankles up to 13 inches in circumference, and there is an optional Boot Extender available for those who wear boots or have larger ankles and need something that can accommodate a wider ankle.

The Ankle Glove is available in black neoprene and has an MSRP of $130. More information on this holster and other gear from Galco is available at
