Fobus Inside the Waistband IWBS IWBL
Fobus Goes Inside the Waistband with New Holster Series

Fobus Holsters focuses on not just making quality, safe holsters, but holsters that are comfortable for the user.

The company has introduced a new Inside the Waistband (IWB) series of holsters: the IWBL and IWBS.

Fobus’ new IWB series offers an innovative approach to a popular and tested system of concealed carry.

The new Fobus IWB holsters are similar to “hybrid” holsters currently on the market, in that they are built from a flexible backing that buffers between the pistol and the body where the holster shell covers the pistol and two belt clips encircle the belt, positioning the holster at waistband height. However, the shell and holster backing on the new Fobus IWB holsters are totally unique.

The holster shell, while having a degree of flexibility, is non-collapsing and allows for one-handed re-holstering.

Fobus is currently offering two new models: the IWBL for large frame pistols and the IWBS for small frame pistols. Both are universal IWB holsters that do not require replacement of shells when used with different similar sized pistols.

The holster’s unique flexible backing is impervious to moisture and features numerous ventilation openings. It also provides a mild, non-slip surface on both sides that serves to prevent lateral movement of the holster around the user’s waist, as well as a retention surface against the pistol.

The holster firmly grips the pistol between the belt tension on the holster shell on one side, and the flexible backing that conforms to the wearer’s body contour on the opposite side.

The new Fobus IWB’s are a perfect combination of flexibility and retention that allow a variety of pistols to be securely carried in the same holster.

The IWB’s are offered in both large (IWBL) and small (IWBS) styles to accommodate the most popular full-size and compact pistols without compromising retention or comfort.

The IWB holsters retails for $39.99 and are available now.
