Bianchi Introduces PREVADER Concealment Holster at SHOT Show
Slim, low-profile design features Pinch retention in a multi-fit open-top holster
ONTARIO, California – Bianchi®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today the release of the Model 4585 Prevader™ Concealment Holster. This ballistic weave model features the exclusive Pinch® Retention Device (PRD™) which secures the holstered firearm by gripping both sides of the trigger guard when the gun is fully seated.
“By incorporating Bianchi’s PRD retention, this model offers a super slim holster body and added security with an instinctive draw,” said James Dawson, category director. “The growing concealed carry market with the demand for quality yet cost-effective holsters with retention capabilities led us to expand upon our hugely popular ballistic weave Evader™ model. The new Prevader holster does just that.”
The Bianchi Prevader holster features a low profile making it highly concealable and comfortable for everyday carry. The internal Pinch Retention Device is formed of a durable high-tech polymer and allows the user to feel when the handgun is fully seated in the holster. The Prevader holster rides high and close to the body for comfort and the open top design has a reinforced opening, making one-handed reholstering easy and efficient.
The Prevader model features a durable trilaminate construction of a 1050-denier ballistic weave exterior, a closed-cell foam center and a nylon lining for a smooth draw. The closed-cell foam allows the holster shape to “set” in the holster providing a confident fit for a variety of pistols. Once the firearm is removed for a day, the holster resumes its natural shape, allowing for a good fit with a different handgun model. The holster attaches to a belt with dual snaps for easy on/off access and fits up to 1.75 in. (45mm) belt widths. The Prevader is offered in three sizes to fit a variety of Glock and S&W M&P models, as well as the Colt Commander, Ruger SR9/SR40 and the FN FNS 9mm, .40. It comes in black and has an MSRP of $38.00.
The Model 4585 Prevader Concealment Holster will be on display at The Safariland Group booth, #12762, throughout SHOT Show 2019 from January 22-25. For more information, please visit www.safariland.com/bianchi.
