Fobus Launches IWB Holsters

posted on May 17, 2017
Fobus Holsters, founded in 1978, was one of the world's first holster manufacturers to use injection-molded polymer. The company made holster for Israeli military and security forces, and now the company offers a number of inside-the-waistband holsters for many popular guns on the market today.

The Fobus IWB Holster features a universal-fit design that allows it to carry more than 14 different single-stack handguns from Beretta, FN America, Kimber, Ruger, SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield Armory, Taurus and Walther.

The holster aims to provide users with an incredibly light and comfortable carry option and features a number of contour cuts that allow for a complete range of motion when carried IWB. The holster uses passive retention and features a polymer body that will not collapse after drawing, ensuring that users can reholster their guns when needed.

The holster features top and bottom retention hooks to ensure that the holster remains secure inside the waistband. Simply hook the top portion of the holster over the top of the belt outside of the pants, while the lower hook will find the bottom of the belt from inside the pants. The suggested retail price for the Fobus IWB Holster is $44.99.

The company also offers what it calls its Universal IWB Holster. The model pictured above is designed to fit medium-framed semi-automatic pistols, but the company also offers universal holsters in smaller and larger sizes to accommodate other guns.

The Universal IWB Holster features a low-profile design that ensures users have a comfortable and concealed carry rig. The holster will fit all medium-frame pistols, including the Glock G17, the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 45 and the Springfield Armory XD. Unlike other holsters on the market, no shell swap is necessary to configure the unit to holster other guns.

The holster does not feature a standard passive-retention system, and the gun is only retained once it is properly placed inside the waistband of a user. The system works when the holster is secured tightly to a user's body, conforming to the wearer and tightening the fit around the pistol.

The suggested retail price for the Fobus Universal IWB Holster is $34.99.
