Black Arch Holsters’ ACE-1 (Always Combat Effective) holsters provide the perfect combination of comfort and rapid deployment for concealed carry. That's because each of our holsters is precision molded for your specific gun and built by hand. The new ACE-1 Gen 2 holster includes our proprietary Comfort Curve: a unique feature developed over months of testing that provides superior comfort. This is achieved by molding the Kydex so that it creates a curve in the back of the holster. This curve allows the holster to fit the body more closely, increasing comfort and bringing the grip closer to the body for better concealment. Other new features of the ACE-1 Gen 2 include user-adjustable retention for greater reliability, thicker Kydex for maximum durability, increased Kydex coverage for a more secure fit, higher density leather for improved wear, and a flared opening for easier holstering. While this second generation holster offers several design changes, it maintains all of the unique features that made the original ACE-1 a leading hybrid holster: durable Kevlar stitching, precision-formed Kydex, premium American leather, beveled edges, adjustable carry height and cant, sweat guard cut for a full grip, and availability for over 200 different handguns. Based out of northern Utah, Black Arch Holsters produces American-made equipment to support those that live ready to defend family, community, and self. Black Arch Holsters, formerly known as SHTF Gear started in 2010 and is a leading manufacturer of hybrid holsters. Specify barrel length for revolver and 1911 holsters.
