has released its 7TS duty holsters
designed to resist extremes in temperature, according to the company.
The 7TS injection-molded holster is constructed of SafariSeven material, a proprietary nylon blend from DuPont that's non-abrasive to the weapon's finish. The 7TS holsters can tolerate cold temperatures as low as -50 degrees Fahrenheit and heat that reaches up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
The 7TS line incorporates certain "corrugated" patterns into the holster's interior and also features built-in "risers" inside the holster specifically to ensure minimal contact of the weapon while in the holster. This creates air space around the pistol, allowing dirt and moisture to quickly clear any contact with the firearm.
The SafariSeven material is nylon and doesn't contain any other filler material. The holster can be submerged in water indefinitely and still maintain shape and function. The matte finish decreases reflection and can be cleared of scratches with a scouring pad.
Initial models offered consist of three concealment holsters and two tactical thigh rigs. These 7TS holsters incorporate the proven ALS internal retention system that provides excellent weapon retention and offers a straight-up draw once the user activates the release. These models are compatible with all Safariland holster mounting options.
Safariland is offering fits for the Beretta 92 9mm and Glock G17 (9mm) or G22 (.40 S&W). Additional fits and models that include ALS uniformed duty holsters, SLS duty and tactical holsters and ALS/SLS duty and tactical holsters will be available in the near future.
The 7TS holsters range in price from $45.50 to $149.50.
