Product Description

The Silent Thunder IWB Holster is unbelievably comfortable, concealable and tuckable; it has been touted as being the best Inside the Waistband Holster on the market. We follow one simple formula; the smaller the package, the more comfortable the ride.  All of our IWB holster designs follow this rule, allowing for maximum comfort, easy one-handed reholstering, ultimate in deep concealability, and stability.

Permanently lined with premium Hermann Oak Leather, the holster will protect your firearm from wear and provide a quick and "silent" draw. Reholstering is no problem with the durable Kydex outer shell and the combination of Kydex and leather will ensure a lifetime of use. Attach inside the waistband with one of Garrett's IWB Clips adjustable for wear height and cant. Several belt clip styles to choose from.  Available in Black or Olive Drab Kydex with natural leather lining (color choice option available for leather lining).

See Silent Thunder IWB Revolver Holster for all revolvers.


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?

If 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.

If you:

  • Have 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.
  • Want 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.
  • Competition: 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 activities.

Ok, it sounds like the Silent Thunder IWB is the clear winner! So why do we even offer the Fusion or Solo?

The 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.

  1. Best Tuckable IWB Holster Hands Down 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2016

    I carry my SIG P226 and M11-A1 every day in Florida. Florida has different challenges for EDC than colder parts of the country. Most of the year we have to conceal with less clothing. There is also the challenge of protecting our firearms from the ravages of sweat. The Silent Thunder is absolutely the best holster that I have found to accomplish the above challenges. It takes up less space inside the waistband of slacks or shorts than the leather holsters I have tried. Its Kydex lined construction is the best of both worlds, you have the sweat protection of Kydex and the easy on your firearm's finish leather. To get a leather holster to come close to the protection this holster provides for your firearm you need to have it made from horse hide which will cost you at least double that of the Silent Thunder and that holster will take up more room inside your waistband. Couple this holster with the Nylon clip and you have a great IWB holster. For further sweat protection I have created a sweat shield that slides over the holster's slide guard to keep the hand grip of my guns from contacting my skin. Buy the holster, I doubt that you will regret it.

  2. Simply the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2016

    Like most people who carry daily, I have a drawer full of holsters. Some work, some don't but, THIS holster will probably never see the inside of that drawer. I've been wearing a Glock 19 in it for two weeks straight. It's very comfortable and conceals well. It's very easy to draw and, unlike all of my other IWB holsters, it's easy to re-holster as well. Sometimes, as much as I don't like to, I have to go into a place where carrying is not allowed and, I would have the hardest time re-holstering when I got back to the car. Not so with this one, even while sitting. If I ever buy another IWB holster, it will definitely be THIS holster but, probably for a different gun.

  3. Impressed! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2016

    Received my Silent Thunder yesterday. Adequate retention and smooth easy draw. Fits my DW Classic Commander perfectly and unlike most kydex holsters with the kydex against the skin it is quite comfortable even without a t-shirt between the holster and skin. I'll be back.

    I just wanted to take a moment to tell you and your employees what an awesome product you are making. The IWB silent thunder holister is so comfortable and so well fitting for my Glock. Thank you and hope you have great success!

    P.S. I will be a repeat Customer!

  5. My first IWB and my last...... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2016

    Ok it's the last one I'll buy this month but I will be a regular customer. From calling to speak with Sheryl to the overall ordering process, they are a topnotch American company.

    Sheryl was so patient and extremely helpful when asking about the options for my Sig P224. I purchased a custom color holster along with custom K2. The fit is perfect, in terms of holster placement for myself, because it's comfortable and easily worn.

    I was so impressed after the first day, I called and ordered a competition holster for CZ Sp-01.

    I would be shocked if you didn't become a huge fan of Garrett Industries products. If you are on the fence at all about buying this or any product, I would encourage you to take the next step.

    I have no relationship other than buying their product.l and didn't receive any discounts or products for my honest review.

  6. Just the best!!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2016

    About 1.5 months ago I purchased my fourth Garrett Industries holster overall, and my second Silent thunder IWB holster. As with previous holsters, this one, for my XD Mod 2 fits perfectly. No squeaks, a nice snug fit, no problems drawing or re-holstering, plus it is really, really comfortable and is beautiful. I don't carry all day long, but I do after work and during weekends, so this holster is ideal for easy-on / off. My pistols and I are proud owners of Garrett Holsters. I will be back for more!

  7. The Highest Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2016

    I've purchased literally dozens of holsters and this Garrett Silent Hide is in a class by itself. Perfect retention out of the box, easily canted with loosening a few screws, and fits my HK USPc like glove. That leather lining is really nice. Was concerned with the control lever on the HK and how it would work in a holster but Ron and his team are true craftsman (and women). I will now switch all of my holsters over to Garrett as funds permit.

  8. Superb IWB Holster 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2016

    I received my first Silent Thunder IWB with a firearms trade for a S&W 686+. I did not plan to IWB carry the 686 due to its size, but the seller was including the holster in the trade, so I gave it a shot. What an exceptional piece of gear Ron Garrett has designed and built! This scabbard manages to easily handle the bulk of my L-Frame wheelgun, keep it securely and discreetly up against my side, and be comfortable for all day wear.

    I have since purchased a Silent Thunder IWB for my XD Mod.2 and the fit and performance are equally as good. You can't go wrong doing business with GI. If you have any questions on the use or spec of the holster you want, just give them a call. They pick up the phone and walk you through it. Friendly, knowledgable, and a top-notch American product. Thanks!

  9. 5 STAR CUSTOMER SERVICE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2016

    I had the pleasure of driving to Woodville Tx. and meeting Ron and Sheryl Garrett as well as the rest of the staff at Garrett Industries.
    I tried to do a modification on my Silent Thunder GT IWB. Needless to say I ruined the hardware on removal. Ron installed the new hardware as well as re-fit my H&K P2000 SK to a more custom fit to my liking. Ron also treated the leather interior with a leather conditioner and gave me the canister of conditioner. By the way did I mention that Ron refused to take any money for all of his time and material.
    This is a top notch organization run by a top notch staff.

  10. Best one yet. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2016

    Bought a few and this one for my S&W M&P Shield 40,by far,is the best. Had a similar one from Leatherneck Tactical.No comparison. Their clip is junk. When you cant it forward the clip moves at an angle leaving a gap that your belt can slip thru. The clip on this is much much better. And I like the leather on the inside. Quality materials and quality work.
