Silent Thunder Fusion will quickly become your 'go-to' IWB/conceal
holster. Designed for long duration comfort, the ST Fusion is the
perfect blend of materials and design for your every day carry (EDC)
weapon. But, hybrid holsters such as the ST Fusion and ST Solo are not for everyone; please read below completely before selecting the Silent Thunder Fusion.
Silent Thunder IWB Vs. Fusion or Solo? I am asked this question many times and it all comes down to this:
What do you expect from the holster?
you are looking for a holster that you put on in the morning and take
off at night then the Fusion or Solo may be right for you. But if any of
the following apply to your situation, you may want to default to the
Silent Thunder IWB.
to remove the holster several times during the day (interview rooms,
jail, work place, post office, etc) The Silent Thunder IWB lends itself
to removal and replacement much better than the Fusion or Solo.
to perform multiple practice presentations daily. The Silent Thunder
IWB will make you much happier in this regard as reholstering is a
breeze given the rigid back.
The Silent Thunder IWB will be the best choice, (in IWB) for IDPA and
other such events. The Solo and Fusion are not built for these
- Want adjustable retention or one-handed reholstering, the Silent Thunder Fusion is not appropriate as its main concern is ALL DAY COMFORT.
Ok, it sounds like the Silent Thunder IWB is the clear winner! So why do we even offer the Fusion or Solo?
Fusion and Solo are for a different kind of buyer. There are a lot of
people in the world that do not perform multiple presentations, compete,
or have to remove the holster during the day. These customers are
looking for something that can be donned in the morning and worn for
hours without discomfort. They don’t care about how it reholsters or
that it is not built like a tank. They want to be comforted by having a
means of defense and they are not paying a price in discomfort to keep
said weapon handy. This is not to say that the Silent Thunder IWB is
uncomfortable. It’s just not as comfortable as a cushy composite back.
In the end it’s all about your lifestyle. We build holsters that can accommodate you, not the other way around.
