Bianchi, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced the availability of the Shenandoah, a new hybrid in-waist-band/outside-waist-band holster. The Shenandoah is an innovative option for those who carry micro-9mms and is optics ready.
"The Shenandoah is a bold representation of the new direction of Bianchi Leather,” said Eric Gasvoda, Vice President and General Manager for the Safariland Group duty gear division. “Bianchi is staying true to its roots with the leather build of Shenandoah, but we’re integrating new materials and customizable elements that allow for an increase in functionality for those who want flexibility from their EDC holster. This is the first Bianchi holster to have been designed with 3D printing, but we’re still building each one with the traditional craftsmanship that defines Bianchi Leather.”
The Shenandoah is built with a flat suede-backed full-grain leather face that incorporates an IWB belt clip, or two OWB belt loops. The back of the Shenandoah is made from Hytrel, a polyester that provides flexibility for comfortable carry and protection for the firearm. The cut of the Shenandoah provides ample clearance for slide-mounted optics.
Shenandoah’s belt loops and belt clip are easily swapped in a matter of seconds. The multi-fit capability of the Shenandoah comes from The Pinch Retention Device, a trigger-guard retention system that provides added security palpable feedback when it clicks into the firearm trigger guard.
These new dual-carry holsters are available in tan or black leather. For more information visit the new Bianchi Leather website: https://bianchileather.com/.
