Respected for its wide array of quality gun leather holsters, belts and magazine pouches, Galco also offers a large selection of innovative, and often more affordable, non-leather products. The company’s Matrix line—which includes the M6X auto-locking holster, selected as the 2013 Golden Bullseye Accessory of the Year—features molded thermoplastic holsters and pouches.

The material used has a soft, glossy appearance very similar to polished leather, but is more durable and will not bend, flex or loosen over time. Models are available in belt, snapping belt-loop and paddle configurations.

Companion products to the holsters, Matrix belts are constructed of BioThane, essentially webbing coated in a synthetic polymer that looks and feels like leather but is more durable and resistant to stretching and moisture effects.

For those looking for a slimmer carry option, Galco’s Tac Slide holster may be the ticket. This belt holster utilizes a thin, molded Kydex pocket affixed to leather backing, providing excellent retention in a discreet package. While this list is by no means an exhaustive treatment of Galco’s synthetic and hybrid offerings, the products mentioned range in price from about $30-$45, and are roughly half the price of their horsehide equivalents.
