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. 2nd Silent Thunder holster

    Posted by Joe C on 19th Sep 2014

    My latest Silent Thunder holster for an MK25 is an amazing product! Very comfy, conceals well, and my Sig fits perfect with the 0-30 degree cant adjustments. I highly recommend this holster to anyone looking for a quality holster.

  2. Perfection!

    Posted by Jason Parsell on 17th Aug 2014

    I need to preface, I never write reviews whether positive or negative in nature. However, Garrett has absolutely earned an excellent review on this product. I felt it was unjust not to share. I just received my first Garrett holster for my Sig P224. Everything about this holster is fantastic; quality, comfort, fit, design/look. The pairing of kydex and leather is outstanding. I have already placed orders for my Springfield XDs and Sig 1911 Ultra Compact. These holsters will exceed your expectations!

  3. Best holster ever!

    Posted by Robbie Arkovich on 3rd Aug 2014

    Being a police officer for 20 years, I have accumulated a box full of holsters for off duty carry. I kept trying different holsters only to go back to the simple neoprene, stuff in your waste band type holster. I stumbled upon Garrett Industries website and the product looked right. I took a gamble on it and wondered if it would be just another holster for the box. Nope!! Not this one!! I finally have a proper holster and I look forward to getting to put it on every time I leave the house. I'm now ordering one for my other off duty firearm. Thanks to the Garretts for a great product!

  4. Great holster

    Posted by Kevin on 16th May 2014

    Comfortable, solid, well built and constructed. Amazed with the build quality. It fits IWB comfortably, holding the gun tight to your body and pants. The clip is solid and the gun doesn't move about as you're going through your day. The fit is exceptional. I ordered it for an HK45c. I also own an HK USP 45c. Despite the similarities in the guns, the USP was tight to get in and the 45C fit like a glove. They truly build these holsters to match your specific gun. Everything is adjustable. I'm relatively new to carry, and gambled on this holster based on internet research. Definitely will recommend it.

  5. Sig 290RS

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Mar 2014

    Just picked up a Sig 290RS while taking a recent class at the Sig academy and a buddy of mine showed me his Silent Thunder holster while at the course. I was hooked. The holster was awesome. So I went ahead and ordered my own and was totally impressed at how fast it arrived, how perfect it fits the piece and how comfortable it is to wear. Awesome.

  6. Best holsters and ccarriers I have ever purchased.

    Posted by Santi on 13th Mar 2014

    Excellent design, well made of excellent material and very functional. The IWB model, unlike some other make, is easy to re-holster. The leather lining is perfect and durable.

    Turn around time is excellent and service is exceptional. The next holster and carrier will again be a Garrett.

  7. A Silent Winner!

    Posted by John (joe) Ulrich on 6th Mar 2014

    I have conceal carried my Honkin' Glock G23 in the Silent Thunder IWB everyday for almost five years now. I have replaced the belt clip a couple times because of how rough I am with my stuff but, aside from that, this holster is a working piece of art! I recommend it to all my friends and who carry. They all carry the Silent Thunder IWB as well. It is nice to find a product, made in America, that is truly made to last.

    I just downsized to a Sig Sauer P238, for which I purchased the Slim II IWB holster. I wanted something less bulky but just as sturdy. It should be in the mailbox this weekend. I am positive that this holster will be as good if not better than the last. I am an absolute addict for GI Holsters!!!

  8. Great Holster!

    Posted by Craig H on 2nd Mar 2014

    This is my second Garrett holster and they are just fantastic. To give an idea how nice it is, when I put it in my wife's belt, she asked if the gun was in it.. She had no idea. I've been carrying every day since I've gotten it and I can hardly tell it's there. Keep up the great work!

  9. I'm blown away

    Posted by Martin B on 16th Feb 2014

    Just received my IWB Silent Thunder today for my Glock 19. This holster is light years better than I even imagined. I'm new to the world of handguns and this is my first IWB holster. I did a lot of research before ordering a holster and I'm really glad I came across GI. I will be placing another order soon for my OWB.

  10. amazed by the product!

    Posted by Dave on 29th Jan 2014

    At first I was a little apprehensive about spending the $ on the holster. After wearing it for an entire day with little to no discomfort I was very impressed. I carry for protection only and my wife is uncomfortable with firearms, she only knows I have it on when she feels it on my back, and I only mess with it when I think my shirt is pulled up. The Silent Thunder is the best IWB holster on the market! I am only buying from Garrett from now on. I made a mistake when ordering my belt size, Garrett called me before shipping to verify, that was outstanding! Thanks again.
