Falco Shoulder Holsters

Falco Holsters is revealing three new shoulder holsters that are designed to enhance concealed carry experiences. The new collection features the handcrafted leather D131 and D231 Roto Shoulder Holsters and the D901 Hybrid Roto Shoulder Holster, offering versatility and efficiency for your everyday carry pistol.

Falco’s Roto Shoulder Holsters boast a rotating function, enabling a vertical carry position for a sleek profile and ergonomic draw even with full-sized handguns. Katarína Zacharová, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Falco Holsters, explains how this works, “When you’re ready to draw, simply unsnap the security strap, and the holster rotates to an angle that promotes a more comfortable grip and rapid draw. The holster incorporates a leather security strap designed to be released by the forefinger and adjustable leather belt tie-down straps to keep your firearm in place. Strategically placed spaces in the leather harness allow extensive size adjustment to fit the harness to your body type. Combined with the leather harness, everyday carriers enjoy balanced weight distribution of the handgun and magazines for all-day comfort.”
