I have been using my original ACE-1 Holster from SHTF Gear for well over a year now and I love it dearly. I reviewed it a while back and found that I like the hardware, the stability, the comfort, and the way they cut the back panel to promote a solid grip straight out of the holster. Now there is a new version of the ACE-1 to look forward to…
From SHTF Gear:
LOGAN, Utah—July 21, 2014—SHTF Gear LLC today introduced a new hybrid holster, the ACE-1 Gen 2. Building on the success of the ACE-1 holster, SHTF Gear developed the second generation ACE-1 to offer greater comfort, durability, and ease of use. This new design will replace the first generation holster and is now available for pre-order through shtfgear.com.
The ACE-1 Gen 2 holster offers several new features, including the Comfort CURVE®, a unique design that provides greater comfort by creating a curve in the normally flat backer. The ACE-1 Gen 2 also offers user-adjustable retention for greater reliability, thicker Kydex for maximum durability, increased Kydex coverage for a more secure fit, and a flared opening for greater ease of use. All of these features are included in the ACE-1 Gen 2 at the same price, $59.95, as the original ACE-1 holster.
While this second generation holster offers several design changes, it maintains all of the unique features that made the original ACE-1 a leading hybrid holster: durable Kevlar® stitching, 22 sizes of leather backers, precision-formed Kydex, premium American leather, adjustable ride height and cant, sweat guard cut for a full grip, and availability for over 200 different handguns.
Based out of northern Utah, SHTF Gear offers American-made equipment to support those that live ready to defend family, community, and self. The company began in 2010 and is a leading manufacturer of hybrid holsters and related accessories. Holsters and other gear may be purchased online at www.shtfgear.com or by calling (435) 261-ACE-1.
