This open top tactical holster features the Automatic Locking System (ALS®). Once the weapon is holstered, it locks into place. When the ALS is de-activated by the thumb, a simple straight up draw is used. The wide elastic single strap leg shroud allows the holster to be worn higher on the thigh and minimizes movement on the leg. The UFA (Universal Flex Adapter) with the 568BL Paddle attached allow for quick removal from the belt. This model is constructed of the innovative SafariSeven™ material, a unique nylon blend from DuPont™. SafariSeven™ is highly durable and practically impervious to the elements.
