Fobus Holsters

An afternoon of window shopping through a dozen gun stores will reveal that the majority of the mass produced holsters are made by American manufacturers. Galco holsters and Blackhawk! holsters are the most-found offerings on the shelves in most areas. The only major international contender on the gun holster scene is Fobus holsters of Israel.

The Fobus Holster Company boasts that it makes a wider variety of holsters that fit a more diverse collection of handgun model than any other. Each year they continue to add more products to their product line. If you can't find a Fobus holster for your gun, you probably won't find it anywhere else either.

Fobus applies a lightning focus to is production and marketing strategy. It is completely committed to producing high-quality injection molded holster designs. Their marketing material and network of dealers is quick to inform that holsters from Fobus are not Kydex, but are instead made from a proprietary polymer that is better suited to long-term wear.

The company claims that a Fobus holster has a significantly faster draw than that of a traditional leather holster. This is due in part to the passive retention system that is built into each holster design. This patented system leaves only one point of contact with the shooter's pistol and that is where the trigger guard matches up to the frame. Low surface friction translates to less resistance on the drawn and speed is the natural result.

Fobus holsters also come from the factory virtually maintenance free. The formation of the high-impact resistant plastic has a natural lubricant so there is no need to oil the holster in order to keep it in top shape for the long haul. Being free of leather and synthetic leather substitutes a Fobus holster doesn't breathe or sweat. They are able to stand up harsh environment conditions and the type of extreme weather that would shorten the service life of a more expensive leather design. Cleaning is a snap as well. Use a little soap and water and a scrub it down, rinse it off and let it dry and you're done.

Unlike a number of other companies that make Kydex holsters, Fobus is willing to stand behind their product by offering a "no questions asked" lifetime warranty. Want to run some torture test and see how long your holster can survive when tossed onto a pile of flaming charcoal? No problem. A quick call to the warranty department will have a new one at your door faster than you'll believe.

With all these benefits it's no wonder that Fobus holsters are so well received by both the law enforcement and sports shooting communities alike. Of course bragged about features do-not-a-quality-holster-make which is why we continue to add more and more reviews of various Fobus models every month.

Built slightly smaller than its full-size models, the Fobus Compact Paddle Holster is made to better fit smaller guns. An open muzzle end also allows the holster to work with guns with similar frames but different barrel lengths.

Fobus made a name for itself pioneering the field of injection-molded holsters. The company feels that all traditional holster designs can be improved upon by utilizing polymer. This goes for the traditional ankle holster as well. The holster body itself is made of injection molded plastic while the band is neoprene. Black is the only color. Made for small frame pistols and holsters both. Production runs include models for right or left handed shooters.
