The Alien Gear Holsters Roswell is the Thinnest Holster on the Market By: Personal Defense World


With firearm manufacturers making their concealed carry pistols thinner, it only makes sense that holster companies would follow suit. Such is the case with the new Roswell from Alien Gear Holsters. Boasting the thinnest profile on the market, the Roswell pushes the envelope of concealment and comfort.

Designed with a minimalist approach, the Roswell is constructed of a proprietary injection-molded polymer. The material is 20 percent lighter, 40 percent tougher, and 80 percent more heat resistant than other molded holsters, according to the company.

As a result, the new material makes the holster very concealable and comfortable. According to Alien Gear, it’s “better than [any] Kydex holster you’ve ever worn.”

The Roswell is available in either OWB or AIWB (appendix inside the waistband) carry for right- and left-hand shooters. The OWB features a paddle-style attachment that locks onto the belt. Likewise, the AIWB features an IWB belt clip that is adjustable for cant and ride height. The AIWB can be worn either strong side IWB or with the included carry claw and wedge for appendix carry.

Both models are available with an optional MRDS hood rather than a standard optic cut-out. As a result, your optic remains protected while your pistol rides in the holster. This also helps prevent your optic from digging in while seated or engaging in physical activity. The holsters are currently available for 20 different manufacturer models.

“We at Alien Gear are always innovating,” Shawn Hostetter, CEO of Alien Gear Holsters, commented. “And we listen to our customer base. With a growing number of citizens carrying all day, whether on the job or for personal protection, holsters need to become even more concealed without sacrificing comfort, access, safety, and affordability.

“Our new Roswell line incorporates all of that and more. These appendix-carry holsters are super light and thin, yet very strong. You get all the security, comfort, and performance you’ve come to know with Alien Gear Holsters in our new Roswell line, designed especially for those that like to carry appendix-style,” Hostetter concluded.
