Pocket Backbone

(3 customer reviews)

$43.97

The Aholster Company Backbone revolver pocket holster is very similar to our standard pocket Aholster. All the same great features with the added benefit the slimmer profile being that the cylinder of the revolver is cut out. The Backbone is only available for our revolver line. The thickest part of the weapon/holster combo has now been slimmed down as far as possible to help with printing that a revolver typically shows. This holster has been shortened to help with those not so deep pockets. Kydex .080″ in multiple color options.

    Back is the best pocket holster on the market period

      Thank you, Dominic! We also agree! 😉

    The backbone is a unique design. It’s not to bulky, fits nicely in your pocket and has excellent retention. It’s the perfect pocket holster IMO!

      Thanks, Dirk, we agree!

    I have been pocket carrying small semi-autos and snubbies for well over a decade and have owned over a dozen different pocket holsters in varying shapes and sizes and designs to avoid printing and facilitate drawing. The Pocket Backbone makes clever use of Kydex in minimizing bulk and weight but still providing good retention, protection, concealment, and ease of draw. I immediately noticed the thinner profile the moment I slipped it into my pocket. Compared to holsters with anti-print panels and padded sleeve type holsters, the Pocket Backbone really does disappear in the pocket and wears comfortably all day long. Drawing is very simple as the two hooks front and rear grab the pocket hem and retain the holster inside while the revolver comes out cleanly.

    If I could make a suggestion for future improvements, I would ask that the outside of the holster be made “flatter” in a sense to fill in the space between the grip, barrel, and cylinder bulges. On some of my thinner dress pants, the holster does print a gun shape a little more than in looser fitting and thicker pants. It could just be me being self conscious, but my wife noticed it one day and pointed it out to me. Perhaps just being a little less curved would do the trick. At any rate, this is not a huge problem and may just be an issue specific to me.

    Overall, the Pocket Backbone is an outstanding revolver-specific holster that ingeniously minimizes the bulky cylinder issue and is very well made. Mine came with nice smooth rounded edges and even the hooks were made just so that they offered retention but were not sharp enough to rip my pocket linings. This is the pocket holster I will wear from now on. Well done, AHolster!
