BH2.1 – Carbon Fiber Open Top Multi-Fit Belt Holster 2.1



What Is 1791 Gunleather’s Project Stealth?

For years, we’ve focused our efforts on producing the highest quality leather holsters – no gimmicks, just fourth-generation craftsmanship and honest 100% American materials. Now we’re looking to appeal to the crowd that may have been using Kydex or a heavier type of carbon fiber for its indestructibility.

In the fall of 2018, 1791 Gunleather’s “Project Stealth” offered a first-of-its-kind product line, bonding leather and carbon fiber into one solid holster. In the past, gun-toters have had to choose between the comfort of leather and the extreme durability of carbon fiber. Now you get the best of both worlds.

Unlike traditional leather holsters, there is no warping on a sunny dashboard, and no cracking, splitting, or snagging in extreme cold or wet weather conditions. Unlike traditional carbon fiber, these holsters do not possess the same hefty bulk or rigidity. You get the body-conforming comfort of leather, as well as the silent draw and black corrugated look of carbon fiber.

This is the same flexible carbon fiber atom filaments used in the production of high-end automobile components, bicycle frames, fishing rods, iPhone cases, drones, and Formula-1 race cars. These holsters are NOT simply “carbon fiber coating” over a flimsy piece of flawed leather. Instead, the carbon fiber is BONDED to the same top-quality heavy Native steerhide you get with any 1791 Gunleather holster.

Great Holster

Great customer service, kept me informed via emails throughout the process. Delivered promptly. The holster was very easy to break in, and is comfortable to wear. Wears close to my body, good concealment.

Carbon fiber

Holster was tight but following the instructions it now fits well. Easy to pull out without falling out.

Without a doubt the finest leather holster I've ever owned. The leather, construction and finishing is extremely high-end, but where it really shines is in retention, and comfort. Its a holster you want to wear. The carbon fiber has an amazing texture, that offers just enough grip to jackets to keep it concealed. And if you open carry, this thing has style. You will never go back to kydex after this.

This is my FAV OWB holster I have ever owned. I typically am in business casual attire for my work and the carbon compliments my typical dress code well. Amazing fit and finish and looks are just as important to me as function. This holster is 5 start on both.
