SHTF Gear continues to improve their Protos Holster and broaden the selection of compact handguns for which it is offered.
You may remember when this holster was introduced because of its clever trigger guard treatment. Kydex holsters (non-light bearing) typically retain on the trigger guard and this is what gives them their “click” in and “click” out. Kydex/leather hybrid holsters only retain on the kydex side of the holster which leaves them without the strong, tactile click of an all kydex holster. The Protos Holster solves this by wrapping the kydex completely around the trigger guard. This gives the strong retention of an all kydex holster and the comfort of a hybrid.
The Protos Holster is now available for three new models in addition to the original Walther PPSM2: Glock 43, S&W Shield, and XDs 3.3. SHTF Gear has also added a suede backing option for additional comfort.
