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. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Top Notch! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2015

    I ordered the Silent Thunder IWB for the Sig 1911 Ultra 45. The craftsmanship is unmatched! Perfect fit for the gun and comfortable. I had called into the shop and Sheryl Garrett was awesome in answering my questions and recommended the HD Gripper clip, since here in Florida, we are in shorts almost year. Its amazing how this holster with that particular clip holds to the simple nylon fabric of shorts. Throw a T shirt over it, and your on your way. Delivery was rocket fast and will be ordering a few more very soon.

  5. Best Holster! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2015

    I ordered this holster after reading TONS of reviews.
    I carry a SIG SAUER 1911 Ultra .45 ACP. This holster arrived about 2 weeks after I ordered it. The quality is top notch! When I first opened it up and took it out of the box the first thing I noticed was how good looking this thing is. I think checked everything out, the leather lining is AMAZING! Its perfectly attached... this will never fall apart or separate from the kydex shell. My firearm fits absolutely perfect in it. The tensioning lugs are placed in the perfect spot. My weapon does not wiggle at all in this thing. I shook it, held it upside down and everything.. fits like a glove! Then...... I put it on... and OH MY GOD!!!! Its like being naked! This thing is so comfortable I cannot imagine EVER using a different holster. In fact, I have already ordered another one for my other firearm.
    The holster also came with the allen wrench to adjust the tensioning on it.
    I ordered with the new clip, and the profile is amazingly low. Just a side note, all my firearms are SIG. I do not buy cheap firearms, and I will never put any of them in anything ever again other than these holsters.
    4 THUMBS UP!!!
    I highly recommend over and over again. Its been a long time since I have gotten excited about receiving something that I ordered. Sorry for the long review, I hope this helps someone. You will not be unhappy you bought this.

  6. Quality second to none 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2015

    The holster for my Glock 42 was made just like the other items from Garrett, the right way!
    Quality of holster was great but the hardware and clip are really what keeps things together and sitting right when carried and used.
    This is my second holster from GI and will not be my last.

  7. buy the best ,...you only cry once. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2015

    I hesitated buying the iwb silent thunder, because of the price. It came highly recommended from my shooting pals, and now that I have it ,It is worth every penny!! Thanks for making a great product here in these United States!

  8. Professional Grade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2015

    During my 28 years in law enforcement I've tried so many holsters and have wasted way too much money. However, once I came across the IWB Silent Thunder I have no use for any other IWB holster. The Silent Thunder is constructed to last and is of professional grade and quality. I own three Silent Thunder holsters (Sig 229, Sig 239, and H&K P2000SK). I can wear any one of my weapons in comfort all day using this holster.

  9. Best IWB holster Ive owned! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2015

    I bought this holster after watching a good review on YouTube, while I was researching kydex IWB holsters. When I looked it up on the website, I thought it was a little expensive, but I decided to take a chance on it anyway. I couldn't be happier with this holster the retention and belt clip are great. I love the that this kydex holster is leather line to protect the finish of my gun. I'll definently be investing in another one as my gun collection grows. If you invest good money into a gun, you should do the same in a holster and this is definently a good one!

  10. One word, AWESOME! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2015

    To the staff at Garrett Industries,
    I have been using my new Silent Thunder holster for my Taurus PT140 Millennium for about two weeks now. One word, AWESOME! It is truly the best purchase I have ever made under $100! I carry every single day, everywhere it is permissible and it is incredibly comfortable and very secure against my body without rubbing, pinching or binding. There was one day when I wore my gun all day from 6am until about 10 that night without taking it off. It never became uncomfortable and I pretty much forgot I even had it on.
    I noticed there were several comments made about the failure of the clips. I ordered the heavy duty clips and they seem quite sturdy. Usually I put on and remove my weapon several times during the day, and it always went on and came off quite easily. While it has only been a couple of weeks, I do not anticipate any problems.
    I have one request. Could you please send me 20 or so business cards? I had two, and I have given them both away. I plan on giving one to all of my shooting friends and anyone else who shows an interest in my Silent Thunder.
    Also, I just want to say your customer service is great! I called a couple of times with questions, and the people I spoke with were very knowledgeable and friendly.
    Thank you for an amazing product!
