First Look: N8 Tactical OT2 Combat Cut Holster

posted on September 22, 2020

N8 Tactical is now producing a new OT2 Combat Cut Holster, designed to work with mid- to full-size pistols. The OT2 Combat Cut Holster is an IWB holster that merges N8 Tactical's Original Holster and Tuckable Holster designs into an all-new platform with excellent ergonomics and clothing compatibility for all-day wear. The Combat Cut design of the holster allows for a full grasp on the pistol’s grip while drawing.

Built from a rugged leather form, the OT2 Combat Cut Holster has a soft suede backing and a moisture-proof neoprene core in between those two layers. The suede backing is comfortable on bare skin or when worn over thin shirts, while the neoprene core prevents moisture buildup in warm carry conditions. The durable leather surface will not mar or scratch your firearm, while still providing a clean and smooth surface that minimizes snag on the draw. The  moisture-proof neoprene core of the backer protects your firearm from sweat and body oils and also works as a compression cushion to reduce the firearm pressing into your body. The body side of the backer features a smooth layer of suede to make the OT2 even more comfortable to use.

The patent-pending clip on the holster lets you easily adjust the cant angle to your liking. The teeth on the back of the injection molded clip align with the teeth on the adapter ring to lock the clip and the holster into place to ensure limited movement. The updated clip design and location even allows shirts to be tucked in for those times when even more concealment is needed.
