Alien Gear Holsters® Rapid Force™ Duty Holster Now Available in Tan 499

Alien Gear Holsters® Rapid Force™ Duty Holster expands to include a Tactical Tan Kit for the Level III holster. 

Post Falls, Idaho (January 2023) – Alien Gear Holsters®, designers and manufacturers of American-made holsters and firearms accessories, and the Rapid Force™ line of Level 2 and Level 3 Duty Holsters, introduce the Rapid Force Duty Holster in the Tan 499 colorway.  The new Tan 499 holster will be exhibited at the 2023 SHOT Show® at Booth 10174, to be held Jan. 17 – 20, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Rapid Force Duty Holster in Tan 499, the official color adopted by the U.S. Army in 2019, is a 100 percent IR neutral tan, which will be offered in a Tactical Tan Kit. The kit will include a Rapid Force Level III holster with a mid-ride belt slide swivel drop leg and MOLLE attachments, along with Alien Gear’s Quick Detach System (QDS) for a seamless transition between reconfigurations. The Rapid Force Tan 499 Duty Holster will be available for the GLOCK 17, GLOCK 19, and SIG Sauer P320 (M17 or M18) with a weapon light and an optic hood.

Alien Gear’s original Rapid Force Duty Holster was designed specifically for law enforcement and military professionals. Its revolutionary retention mechanism was engineered to provide the highest level of security while maintaining an incredibly fast and fluid draw. Alien Gear Holsters’ patented Gross Motor Response (GMR™) retention control system allows the user to draw consistently with a perfect grip, even under stress. The Rapid Force Duty Holster has been thoroughly tested in extreme environments and under extreme conditions so that it has been referred to as a “tank” of a holster, able to withstand anything thrown at it.

“The Rapid Force Duty Holster is fast proving itself as the premier, modern duty holster,” Joe Lienemann, Director of Law Enforcement Sales for Alien Gear Holsters, commented. “Its ergonomic retention system enables a faster draw with no loss of security and a robust construction that withstands the harshest conditions and environments. With the new Tactical Tan Kit, we will be able to reach customers that require this specific color finish.”
