The GunfightersINC Solace Hybrid IWB is different than most hybrid holsters on the market. Sure, it has the kydex-on-the-front-leather-on-the-back format that makes hybrid holsters so comfortable but also has a handful features that are less common.
It is significantly more compact than most hybrids thanks to it’s CAD design holster mold and single clip design. The leather backer is only as wide as the kydex front panel making this hybrid similar in size to an all-kydex holster.
The Solace also features a fully enclosed trigger guard with retention points on both sides thanks to a kydex wing that is riveted into the holster. Many hybrid holsters lack the firm, positive retention that only being completely enclosed in kydex can provide. This allows the retention to be consistent regardless of the tension on the leather backer.
