Bianchi Introduces Model 155 Subversion IWB Concealment Holster
at 2017 SHOT Show
Combines performance of synthetics with traditional Bianchi Gunleather

ONTARIO, California – Bianchi®, a brand of The Safariland Group, today announced it will introduce the Model 155 Subversion™ IWB (inside-the-waistband) Concealment Holster at the 2017 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor and Trade) Show, booth #12762. This holster allows the wearer to carry comfortably with its very low-profile design and adjustable cant. New to the Allusion leather/laminate series, the Subversion features an antibacterial/anti-microbial foam padding for comfort and germ prevention / odor accumulation.

The Model 155 holster is an expansion of the popular Allusion™ series, combining the look and feel of premium full-grain Bianchi Gunleather® with a laminate synthetic interior providing a smooth draw and long lasting fit and function. This lightweight, durable design will keep its shape for years, providing best-in-class performance for inside-the-waistband wear.

“The Bianchi 155 Subversion IWB Concealment Holster is an ideal inside-the-waistband concealment option for the growing commercial market of citizens looking for a comfortable IWB for medium, compact, and sub-compact handguns, including the newest single stack 9mm varieties,” said James Dawson, category director for Safariland. “Its fully adjustable cant and germ and odor reducing padding is a clear differentiator in a broad category of holsters.”

Key features include:
• A low profile, contoured body-hugging design
• An antibacterial and anti-microbial foam padding on the inside liner of the leather backing preventing germs and odor from accumulating against the body
• Fully adjustable cant with a belt loop attachment strap for placement in either appendix or rear hip carry
• A padded liner providing comfort not normally found on bare leather designs
• A slight detent in the trigger guard for an enhanced handgun retention

Available January 2017, this holster has a versatile fit for up to 1.75” (45mm) belt widths, and is offered to fit 14 different firearms including Colt, Glock, Ruger, Sig Sauer, S&W, and Springfield. It is available in a Plain Black finish with an MSRP of $68.00.

The Model 155 Subversion Concealment Holster will be on display at The Safariland Group booth, #12762, throughout SHOT Show 2017, from January 17 to 20. For more information, please visit
