Safariland is well known in the industry for making high-quality duty holsters that are used by military and law enforcement personnel around the world. Safariland duty holsters are rugged, reliable, and field-tested. Recently, Safariland has decided to step outside of its comfort zone and introduced a new product to the market. Safariland is proud to announce their newest product, the Safariland Schema IWB holster.

The Schema will be the starting point for Safariland’s new EDC lineup of IWB holsters. The Schema will initially be available for the SIG SAUER P365, P365 XL, Glock 43 and 43X, Springfield Hellcat, and the Taurus G2C and G3C pistols. The IWB holster by Safariland will also be an optics-ready minimalist holster.

Below, is the press release from Safariland on the new Schema IWB holster.

Press Release

Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group®, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets and one of Cadre Holdings, Inc.’s (NYSE: CDRE) (“Cadre”) key brands has announced exciting and much-anticipated news for the concealed carry market. Following the company’s success with retention-rated duty holsters, Safariland is expanding its everyday carry line. Schema—a new inside the waistband (IWB) holster—is the first of several new models coming in the next few months.

Schema is an optics-ready minimalist holster designed for subcompact firearms. As the namesake implies, the skeletonized outline of the holster frame has a smaller footprint than traditional IWB offerings to optimize concealability. This new model offers superior functionality with a reinforced mouth, allowing for seamless firearm holstering while the holster is worn. The firearm-specific design creates an exacting fit, which is further secured by Schema’s passive trigger guard retention.

“Safariland is thoughtfully expanding on our concealment line to offer consumers unparalleled quality and innovation they’ve come to expect from the brand,” said Eric Gasvoda, VP/GM of Duty Gear for Safariland. “Schema is the beginning of the revitalization of our EDC holster line, and I can’t wait to get it into the hands of our customers.”

Schema and the company’s new EDC line centers solely around responsible concealed carry. New models will incorporate passive retention, up-to-date fits, and EDC versatility never before available in Safariland’s lineup.

Schema is currently available for the Sig Sauer P365, P365XL, Taurus G2C and G3C, Glock 43 and Glock 43X, and Springfield Armory Hellcat. For more information on Schema and the inspiration behind its design visit
