Inside the Waistband (IWB) remains the most effective means of deep concealment. The new Blackhawk Stache IWB holster provides a comfortable, rigid, modular option for EDC.

The Stache features impact-reinforced, injection-molded polymer. The design outperforms the limitations of Kydex, according to Blackhawk, while remaining affordable. The ambidextrous holster proves versatile. It includes a low-profile shirt guard for added comfort, without inhibiting draw stroke.
“If the holster isn’t comfortable, eventually the carrier will choose a different holster – or worse, stop carrying entirely,” said Justin Hoffman, Blackhawk product manager. “We want people to carry, which is why we developed the Stache.”
Blackhawk designed the Stache for deep concealment. Designers sought to reduce printing while adding a greater level of stability. An optional concealment claw helps meet that challenge.
“The concealment claw uses opposing leverage on the interior of the belt, so as the belt pulls the holster in, the claw pushes out,” said Hoffman. “By harnessing this leverage, the pistol grip is pulled in toward the body, reducing printing. By changing out the different sized leverage pads provided, users can tailor the concealment factor to their gun, their body type, and their preference.”
The Stache includes a 1.5-inch J-style belt clip for attachment. Height and cant adjustment for both holster and magazine carrier provide versatility. It comes in Base and Premium configurations, compatible with other Blackhawk IWB accessories.
The Stache also comes optics ready. It will accept many popular handguns mounted with with red dot sights. Multiple variations of the Stache include Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 48, SIG P365, S&W M&P 2.0, S&W Shield, Colt Commander, Taurus G2C and Ruger LC9.
“The Stache was designed by concealed carriers, for concealed carriers,” concluded Hoffman. “When you put it on, carry it and train with it, you will understand why.”
The Stache IWB holster retails for $39.95 for the Base options. The Premium version runs $64.95. For even more info, please visit blackhawk.com.
