5.11 Tactical has done it again with their amazing 5.11 Tactical ThumbDrive Holster. The ThumbDrive is the safest and fastest-drawing Level II holster available on the market today. It features our exclusive thumb-activated safety that secures your weapon at all times, and with the optional Chop-BlockTM feature, helps prevent others from removing it during a weapon retention struggle.
5.11 Tactical has expanded their offering of the holster to include the Smith & Wesson M&P models including the Pro series, Full Size and Compact size. 5.11 Tactical has also included some holsters for the Sig 220 and Sig 228/229. While the list has expanded slowly, it will be nice to see some other firearm users be able to use this holster.
The 5.11 Tactical Thumb Drive Holster is the only holster that has placed the release mechanism for the weapon in the natural process of the draw. It requires no extra learned motor movement unlike many of its competitors. Additionally the action of pressing down on the release mechanism actually provided a more consistent and solid grip on the gun. This action results in no shifts on the backstrap once you make first contact on the weapon.
The Thumb Drive platform itself is large enough to easily access even when your approach to the backstrap of the weapon is not ideal. Smaller mechanisms that require finer motor movements are more difficult to release when drawing quickly under stress.
Using the 5.11 Tactical Thumb Drive Holster takes a little getting used to, as is the case with a lot of new hardware (guns and holsters alike) you have to use it and practice with it to get a real handle on it. The 5.11 Tactical Thumb Drive Holster is reinforced for increased weapon retention, its engineered by Blade-Tech, and Field tested by Viking Tactics. The holster includes a belt slide and paddle. The belt slide adjusts to fit up to 2.25″ belts. The 5.11 Tactical Thumb Drive Holster includes a removable chop-block attachment. Drop and offset kits are available as is a 5.11 Tactical ThumbDrive Thigh Rig.
