Product Preview: Tier 1 Concealed AGIS Holster

posted on December 12, 2017

Tier 1 Concealed’s AGIS holster makes use of several materials in its construction and has features that improve comfort and concealment for armed citizens. In its primary configuration, the AGIS is an appendix-carry IWB holster with an attached magazine pouch. The shell is made of durable molded kydex, and the holster attaches to the user’s belt via two polymer clips. The holster also features a concealment claw, which projects outward and presses against the inside of the user’s waistband, helping to snug the holster close to the body to improve concealment, especially of the pistol’s grip frame.

Setting the AGIS apart is a strip of leather and a column of snaps. Affixed to the inside edge of the pistol holster, the leather strip and snap caps mate with the studs on the magazine pouch to give the unified platform a bit of flex to better fit the contours of the carrier’s body. The arrangement also allows the two halves to be separated to accommodate other carry methods, such as moving the pistol to the strong-side hip, as situations may demand. Tier 1 offers the AGIS for a variety of popular pistols, in both quick-ship ($125) configurations and as custom builds (from $130), wherein buyers can choose the kydex color/pattern and specify features such as threaded barrels or slide-mounted optics.
