The Tulster Contour is an innovative OWB (Outside the Waistband) holster with “molded-in” asymmetrical wings that angle the firearm’s grip towards the body, reducing the visible profile of your defensive pistol so it is less noticeable to others. The wings function similarly to a claw on other holsters require none of the extra clunky hardware or hassle of installation.

Now each model of the Contour includes left handed variants, making this their third holster series to be available for left and right-handed shooters. All future models released for the Contour will launch in both orientations.

The Contour also features the innovative R.A.S., or, Retention Adjustment Slot. Unlike other adjustable retention holsters that need to be occasionally re-tightened, the Contour’s R.A.S. has a retention tag can be vertically adjusted and fully tightened to allow for on-the-fly retention adjustment while still offering a rock-solid fit. Like all other Tulster holsters, it features a trigger-guard based retention system with the same positive click.

Some of the other features of the Contour include a raised sight channel for aftermarket sights and an open-ended muzzle area for use with threaded barrels. The Contour is optics-ready and features stainless steel hardware, self-locking screws and belt loops that fit any belt from 1.5 inches to 2 inches

The Contour is currently available for 12 firearm models, including popular micro compact pistols such as the Glock 43X MOS, SIG Sauer P365 and P365XL, the Springfield Hellcat and the Shield Plus. The Contour also accommodates some larger firearms, like the Glock 19, Glock 17, the M&P 2.0 4/4.25 inch models as well as the P320 X-Full.

The Contour first launched in black and black carbon fiber. There is now a new, highly requested color offering, Black Multicam. Black Multicam has also been rolled out for their other IWB Holster, the OATH. For those who wish to carry a matching magazine carrier, Tulster has rolled out the Black Multicam color for all of their Echo line of spare magazine carriers.

MSRP for the Contour starts at $79.99, and more information on this holster and other gear from Tulster is available at
