Sneak Peek: PHLster Flatpack XL Prototype

PHLster is betting the Flatpack concept is good for carrying more than just tourniquets. The image below shows the Flatpack XL prototype and as you can see, it can organize all kinds of gear. The Flatpack XL could certainly be used as a medical insert but it has obvious cross-over appeal for range bags, EDC bags, tool boxes and more.

Stay tuned for pricing and availability information.


Sneak Peek: PHLster Flex

PHLster’s upcoming Flex is an intriguing new concept for concealed carry gear. The Flex is basically a laser cut hypalon panel that has the potential to bring together everything (related to self-defense and self aid) you typically carry on a daily basis in a way that is completely modular and configurable.

While the Flex itself is simple, the concept is very nuanced and has far reaching applications. The video below does a good job of explaining the role this system plays in enhanced holster comfort and heat shielding in addition to the organizational aspects. Stay tuned for more details.

Pumpkin spice season is upon us. PHLster and Snake Hound Machine are celebrating with a limited edition Skeleton Holster in Pumpkin Spice Orange – perfect for those cool autumn mornings at Starbucks. The color may be a joke but the holster is real. It has all the quality and features you expect from a PHLster Skeleton Holster.

These will only be available through the end of October. You can laugh or sneer all you want… but we both know you actually kind of want one!

PHLster TuckStrut and Classic Holster

PHLster released details today for two products that they have been teasing for weeks – the TuckStrut and full size Classic Holster.

The TuckStrut is a new piece of hardware developed by PHLter and Henry Holsters. The strut has an integral wing feature that serves to turn the butt of the handgun in toward the wearer for better concealment. It is tuckable and completely ambidextrous for use on right or left hand holsters. You can expect to see the new TuckStrut on PHLster holsters as well as in use as an OEM product for other holster makers.

PHLster also released news on their first full size holster in some time. The Classic was originally available through their custom shop but it is now available as a production offering with a number of improvements. The holsters features the aforementioned TuckStrut and a tear drop shaped in-molded ramp on the rear of the holster that work together to ensure that the grip of the gun stays firmly against the wearer for concealment. The Classic is molded for a Glock 17 but with an open muzzle so it also fits G26, G19, G19 with external comps, and G34 sized guns.

The TuckStrut and Classic are in stock and available at PHLsterHolsers.com.

PHLster Flatpack High-Viz Deployment Tabs

PHLster’s Flatpack tourniquet holder continues to learn new tricks. Its latest is the addition of accessory High-Viz Deployment Tabs. These red, laser cut Hypalon tabs come in kit form consisting of 3 tabs and replacement shock cord. The tabs serve as a visual indicator of the life saving payload carried by the Flatpack and act as an aid for releasing the tourniquet from the carrier.

They can be strung onto the carrier in at least two ways: 1 on each shock cord retention loop or 1 connecting both shock cord retention loops so that both can be pulled at the same time. You may even find other ways to use them.

Flatpack Pull Tab

The PHLster Flatpack has proven to be a tourniquet carrier capable of being configured a ton of different ways. It can be worn on belts or straps, used with adhesive Velcro for attaching to loop fields, attached to PALS webbing, and people are still finding new ways to configure it. One of the more recent and clever configurations I’ve seen to use the soft loop as a pull tab which allows the user to retrieve the TQ from a deep pouch quickly.

PHLster Skeleton S/S/T

PHLster has released a new version of the Skeleton holster, the Skeleton S/S/T. The new holster is more of a transport and utility cover than a holster in that it isn’t designed to be worn. It has no belt hardware and is specifically designed for safe storage and transport of the firearm. The blaze orange color and glow in the dark lanyard could make a Glock stored in the drawer of your nightstand, or in your range bag easier to find.

Additionally, the Skeleton S/S/T may have application for some discreet off body carry methods like inside a backpack or inside a Hill People Gear Kit Bag and other similar set ups. The Skeleton S/S/T could be fixed in the bag via a short lanyard when would cause the holster to break away during the drawstroke as the full length of the lanyard was reached.

These are available now as part of a limited pre-production run via the PHLster Custom Shop. It is currently only available for double stack Glock 9mm, .40SW, and .357SIG pistols.

The new sheath benefits from improved manufacturing processes to feature greatly availability, improved access due to increased hand clearance, improved retention, greater hardware compatibility, more precise molding, and a $10 reduction in price.

Tease: PHLster TDI Fightworthy Sheath Improvements

PHLster is teasing some upcoming improvements to their TDI Fightworthy Sheath. The Ka-Bar TDI is an excellent, budget-friendly self-defense knife that happens to be saddled with a lousy sheath from the factory. PHLster’s previous iteration of the TDI Fightworthy Sheath was one of the best aftermarket sheath options out there for the TDI.


The new version will be available sometime this month and will offer several improvements over the previous iteration including:

  • Improved retention
  • Increased clearance for your hand when accessing the knife
  • Wider compatibility with belt and attachment hardware

Best of all, the new and improved sheath will sport a new, lower price. This sheath will be rolled out sometime in September 2016. Keep an eye on PHLster distributor Snake Hound Machine for details.


PHLster Skeleton: Official Holster of the EGL VOCR

Extreme Gear Labs has announced that the PHLster Skeleton Holster is now the first holster to be officially approved for use with their VOCR chest rigs. The VOCR is designed to accept holsters in both its GP pouches or in its back panel and the Skeleton will work in either location. While the VOCR can accept a variety of holsters, the Skeleton holsters have been vetted to work particularly well in this format.
