    • Carry positions. because of the user adjustable cant and the small footprint of the holster, the Solo can be worn anywhere from crossdraw to MOB.
    • The composite back on the Solo makes for unexcelled comfort. The suede, neoprene, and leather provides the perfect barrier between the pistol and you.
    • Uses our Silent Thunder IWB Clips (Standard, Slimline, J Hook, V Clip, Nylon Clip, HD Clip or Kydex Belt Loop Clip) or the Silent Thunder IWB Tuckable Loops.
    • The single mount system combined with the suede backing provides for rock solid stability while maintaining an easy on/easy off capability.

Silent Thunder IWB or GT 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, workplace, post office, etc) The Silent Thunder IWB or Silent Thunder GT 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.
  • Want adjustable retention or one-handed reholstering, select the Silent Thunder IWB or the Silent Thunder GT as the Solo is not appropriate. The Solo's 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?

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.

Superb Holster September 29, 2018
Reviewer: Russ Hamilton from Scottsdale, AZ United States  
I bought this holster in Jul 2018 so I've spent several months evaluating it. I'm a retired state trooper and a police firearms instructor - this is my third GI holster. As usual, Garrett came though again and produced an excellent well made holster, so far the Solo is my favorite due to ease of getting it on and off - I carry a Sig X Carry with a compact grip in it. This holster is very well made, has held up perfectly. I bought mine with the HD wide clip. As with any holster I suggest you break it in by inserting and removing the pistol multiple times, over and over before use, then put it on and practice drawing a few times with an UNLOADED handgun.  I'm extremely happy with this holster and would buy another.

Super Comfy! May 11, 2018
Reviewer: Jamie Beck from Mesa, AZ United States  
Love it!  Also have a GT for another gun.  The GT is more "open" but this Solo is simple enough to re-holster with a few minutes of practice and more comfy, not that that I didn't wear my GT all day long without issue.

Bottom line is if I had to buy another IWB  holster tomorrow I'd go with another Solo.  

Comfy.  Secure.  Can still practice multiple presentations safely with practice.

Love it!

Most comfortable holster I've every worn May 17, 2016
Reviewer: Simon Eggington  
I have been wearing my Silent Thunder Solo for a couple of years now, almost every day, all day. I often forget I'm wearing it, it's so comfortable. Excellent retention, and easily re-holstered.

The cant adjustment is excellent, and the belt clip allows easy removal, yet it stays in place even under exertion, or while crawling over, or under, obstacles.

I have purchased 3 of these for myself and my wife, and each has been manufactured to the highest quality. I recommend Garret products to all my friends and associates, and all of us have been very pleased with our purchases.

Thanks Ron and Sheryl!

Very comfortable and great quality May 17, 2016
Reviewer: Colby  
I have owned a Silent Thunder Fusion (full size XDm, ~3.5 years) and the Silent Thunder Solo (MP Shield, 1 year). These holsters are top notch. Very comfortable and easy to conceal. The adjustable cant of the Solo makes it very comfortable and versatile. The kydex clips make it very easy to remove or put the holster on. There is no need to undo your belt. I dont go anywhere without these holsters.
