Silent Thunder Slim (AIWB Only)
Silent Thunder Slim (AIWB Only)

The Silent Thunder Slim is a concealable and tuckable inside the waist holster for a smooth draw and firearm protection. Permanently lined with quality domestic leather** for a rapid, even draw. The "Slim" takes the clip from the top of the holster and offsets it to create a slightly thinner profile. The clip features two mounting points and can be raised or lowered on barrels 3.5" or longer. On shorter barreled firearms, the clip will be placed in the appropriate position for a full grip. The clip can achieve a forward cant of up to 20 degrees. The Enhanced Nylon Clip/Clip Adaptor comes standard. The Silent Thunder Slim is available in all colors.. Only suited for: Appendix Carry. No Crimson Trace Laserguards. No lights. No revolvers (see Silent Thunder IWB Revolver Holster). The Silent Thunder Slim will work with the Phister Enigma System (select Enigma for Mounting Option to have bolt pattern ready).

Garrett has been searching for a clip that complements our holsters for many years. We have researched/purchased countless third party clips, never finding one that offers our bolt pattern or the amount of cant we think is essential for properly carrying a firearm. We are pleased to announce the addition of our newly designed and tested clip adapter. This adapter, along with a Nylon-66 Clip that we have modified, is the answer. The Offset Mounting Clip has 20 degrees of forward and backward cant and can be raised 1/2" to lower the ride. Offset Mounting is only suitable for the Silent Thunder Slim Holsters produced since June 8, 2022. Slim Holsters produced prior to this new release should use the Nylon Clip available under Product-Mounts. The Enhanced Nylon Clip with Clip Adapter is available in belt sizes 1 1/2" and 1 3/4". Another plus is that the clip portion can be purchased separately if you change belt sizes.

5 of 5 Silent Thunder AIWB February 15, 2024
Reviewer: Christopher W. from NH  
Just received my holster after a very short lead time.
Fit and finish are absolutely flawless.
Easily adjusted to fit my body for the ride and cant.
Been wearing it for 2+ hours, extremely comfortable.
Glad I ordered it for the 5" 1911, as it rides better appendix.
Glad I ordered with the sweat shield.

The leather liner will definitely protect the finish on my Dan Wesson Guardian better than kydex or boltaron alone.
Top notch quality here.  Purchase with confidence, for a well built holster.

5 of 5 Outstanding craftmanship! September 8, 2021
Reviewer: Thu from Olympia, WA  
Ordered the Silent Thunder Slim with oversized sweat shield for my Hellcat.   One of the few quality products crafted in the U.S. with U.S. components.  Beautiful, expertly made holster.  Butter soft leather lining.  Very comfortable to carry.  Well worth its price.  Absolutely satisfied with it.   Absolutely recommend!

5 of 5 Silent Thunder Slim - Glock 19 July 18, 2021
Reviewer: Gerrit from Seattle  
Love this holster. Works very well for strong side hip IWB placement with the clip canted. The slim profile is as comfortable as those cheap neoprene holsters but is actually safe and has proper draw functionality. Looking for a comfortable, slim EDC holster? This is the one. Top quality materials and it is worth buying a holster that you will use for life and rely on. Many people see the price and think that is 1/5 the price of my gun, but we all know a gun is useless unless setup properly and has quality ammo.

5 of 5 From One Garrett to Another (no relation!) February 6, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I purchased the AIWB Slim Silent Thunder with the Over-Sized Sweat Shield. I was a little concerned that the oversized sweat shield not what I wanted, however after talking to a very helpful and professional lady at your company, named Sheryl Garrett and after wearing my  holster for a week or so and a trip to the range to practice my concealed draw and firing drills, I am totally satisfied with my purchased.

Here are the following things I LOVE about my new Garrett AIWB Slim Silent Thounder Holster:

1. In my case and body type, the oversized-sweat shield works as it should, the size does not interfere with a natural draw from concealment. The Over-sized shield provides protection from the beavertail and hammer bite between you skin and holster.

2. With proper adjustment of the belt clip, I am able to establish a positive and firm grip on my handgun for a safe and smooth draw from the holster. (by-the-way) the Belt Loop on the clip fits perfectly to the 1 1/2" belt, no slip and a positive lock under the belt which retains the holster inside my waistband while drawing the weapon.

3. The construction of the holster, in my opinion is perfect. Although I have only used the holster for over a week or so, and taken it to the range for 4 times, I find it to fit my EDC needs and exceeded my expectations.

I would like to think you for this out standing product. (Would not expect a different outcome with a name like Garret on your product).  A happy and satisfied Customer.

5 of 5 So Comfortable, Forget I Have It On July 31, 2018
Reviewer: JA from AL  
Just got my third aiwb holster from you and have been wearing it for the past two weeks. This holster is so comfortable I forget I have it on. I use it to carry a CZ75B. With a pistol this size a poor quality holster would not work. This rig works extremely well during practice at the range and conceals very well for day to day carry. I have the greatest of confidence in  all the holsters I have bought from you.  The quality and workmanship are outstanding as are your customer service and willingness to help with advice and problem solving. A loyal and satisfied customer you have made of me. Thank You, JA
