Selecting A Holster For Your Pack
The Exo Mountain Gear K3 hip belt features 2" webbing (1.5" on K2 packs), which can accommodate a wide variety of holster types and sizes for many pistols. Most holsters that can fit that width of belt will work great on our hip belt.
That said, most holsters are not designed to work ideally for use on a pack. There are holsters for concealed carry, holsters for recreational shooting, and holsters for competition shooting. After using many of these holsters with our packs, we realized they each of different drawbacks.
A Holster That Is Purpose-Built For Packs
We worked with custom kydex holster maker, Ivory Holsters, to develop a solution that was built specifically for use with our pack systems.
The EMG Holster features...
- A streamlined profile to keep the sidearm close to the belt
- A pre-curved shaped to match the hipbelt
- A secure mounting mechanism fitted specifically for our belt
- A mounting system that allows the holster to easily be attached or removed
- A fine-tune adjustment to achieve your preferred amount of retention
- A closed or crowned bottom to keep debris out of the sidearm muzzle
- A forward cant to allow for an easy grip and draw of the sidearm
- A high guard to protect the weapon from abrasion
Every EMG Holster is hand built by Gabriel Saindon of Ivory Holsters. Full disclosure: we don't make a dime when you purchase an EMG Holster, but we are proud to recommend them for the many benefits they offer.
