New Inside Waistband Holster Combines Friction Fit For Weapon Security And Reinforced Top For Easy Draw

April 23, 2007
Temecula, CA

Innovative Design Sets New Inside Waistband Holster Apart

Bianchi International, a leading manufacturer of holsters and accessories for the law enforcement, security, and outdoor markets, announces today a new inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster – the Bianchi Model 120 Covert Option™.

Bianchi’s Covert Option features a distinctive design that provides a secure friction fit. The holster front features a moldable suede center panel that provides a form fit once the belt wraps around the holster and threads through the dual one-way snap belt keepers. The Covert Option also features a reinforced, non-collapsing top opening for efficient one-handed holstering.

The low profile design of the Covert Option effectively conceals weapons with minimal bulk and the slight forward cant design provides easy access while seated. Dual belt loop straps offer maximum stability and firm placement on belts up to 1.75” width, and a high holster back provides protection to clothing and keeps sharp edges of the gun away from the body. The open muzzle design allows debris to fall through.

The Bianchi Model 120 Covert Option™ is available in Plain Tan for a wide variety of semiauto and 2” small frame firearms. MSRP $85.00. For additional information, please visit
