For a company known for making quality leather without breaking the three figure price point (minus specialty items) DeSantis SKUs into other holster materials from time to time as well. The Variable 87 is one such venture and they use nylon to accomplish it.
Variable™ 87 is a new light weight IWB holster made from 1060 Ballistic Nylon, closed cell foam and lined with slick pack cloth. It is also fitted with the DeSantis Tuckable 360® clip for unlimited cant adjustment and integrated sweat shield. This feature allows operator to wear this holster on any part of the waistline. The #M93 is built in 5 different sizes to accommodate today’s most popular concealable handguns.
Playing of their Variable 13 title, an ambidextrous leather configurable, the 87 comes in at half the cost and available in a variety of frame fitments. The smaller pistols like the G43, Sig P365, and Springfield Hellcat are catered toward by the 87 and its tuckable IWB setup.
DeSantis looks to comfortably accommodate the end user and account for all tastes in firearms. I expect the variable line to keep growing and I will probably try one out on this Hellcat I’ve got.
