In the world of concealed carry, user comfortability and solid retention are two of the foremost goals of any holster maker, and Fobus Holster's new Inside the Waistband (IWB) series strives to offer the best of both worlds in a platform that is flexible enough to accommodate a variety of different semi-automatic handguns. Offered in two models, the IWBL for large frame pistols and the IWBS for small frame pistols, the IWB series features universal, non-collapsing holster shells which allow them to be used with a variety of similarly sized gun models-without the need to swap out a different shell replacement for each firearm. The holster's unique backing is impervious to moisture and features a textured surface to prevent it from sliding laterally along the wearer's belt while also aiding in retention. According to Fobus, IWBL and IWBS holsters will be available in retail stores by the end of January or early February 2015. Price: $40.
