NRA Gun Gear of the Week: Tulster Holster and Echo Mag Carrier

posted on July 29, 2018

The minimalist, Kydex inside-the-waistband holster has really come into its own, and Tulster makes a very good example for many popular personal-defense pistols. Vacuum formed from a single sheet of Kydex, with a sturdy polymer belt clip—soft loops are available separately—and adjustable retention, Tulster’s holsters are light, trim and provide good security and concealment.

Tulster is also innovating in the concealed-carry market, as evidenced by its Echo Mag Carrier, which is designed for versatility. Sharing a similar construction pattern with the company’s holsters, the Echo also features bilateral slotted screw holes which allow it to be adapted for inside-the-waistband or outside-the-waistband carry, and left- or right-hand use by simply swapping the clip between the sides, and there is a small degree of cant and ride height adjustment as well.

The Echo also uses Tulster’s Mag Retention Device (MRD), an internal tensioning mechanism which allows a single carrier to accommodate and secure a wide range of magazines. Echo Mag Carriers are available in four configurations: 9 mm/.40 Double Stack; 9 mm/.40 Single Stack; .45 Double Stack; and .45 Single Stack. A 1/8” allen wrench is included for MRD adjustment, and 12 color/pattern options are available.
