Safariland is known as a global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets and now the company has introduced new versions of its Solis OWB (Outside the Waistband) holster for the Glock G17 and G19.

Safariland introduced the Solis holster in 2023 to accommodate subcompact pistols that have weapon-mounted lights and red-dot optics. Now available for the Glock G17 and G19, the Solis offers law enforcement officials and armed citizens a new OWB carry option that builds on Safariland’s reputation for creating holsters with real-world retention capabilities.

“We continue to collaborate with firearm manufacturers to ensure a diverse range of OWB holster fits for the most effective tools for everyday carry,” said Eric Gasvoda, general manager of duty gear for Safariland. “Solis is an ideal addition to our outside-the-waistband holster family, and we’re proud to provide new Glock options for the firearm and law enforcement community.”

The Solis OWB holster is crafted from a durable and weather resistant SafariSeven nylon blend for rugged durability to protect your firearm. The open muzzle end design facilitates easy debris removal and accommodates threaded barrels, ensuring optimal functionality in various environments.
