Alien Gear is known for making premium Kydex holsters for concealed carry and duty purposes. Recently, the company sought to marry the two ideas together to give shooters more options and versatility. Alien Gear is proud to introduce the Photon holster. The Photon can be a concealed carry holster for one minute, with some minor adjustments changed to an outside-the-waistband holster. The holster’s design was to give the end user more versatility out of their holster. The Photon features an ambidextrous design, IWB and OWB compatibility, optics-ready, and an optional side car attachment.

Below are the product details and features of the new Photon holster from Alien Gear.
