Galco Holsters, a premium leather holster manufacturer, has expanded its line of Ankle Glove offerings to include an option for the popular Springfield Hellcat pistol. The option for the Hellcat pistol joins a laundry list of options for those who need deep ankle concealment.
The Ankle Glove was specifically designed for deep concealment for those who prefer an ankle holster. The premium steerhide holster offers detailed molding for the firearm and features a retention strap with reinforced thumb break, on most models. Both features add to the retention of the Hellcat and security for the user. In addition, a sheepskin padding lays between the holster and the ankle for extra comfort for the wearer.
The holster is stitched onto a neoprene band that keeps the holster from moving and will accommodate ankles up to 13” in circumference. The band also features a hook-and-loop fastener attachment to keep the holster secure on the band. Galco offers an optional calf strap for the Ankle Glove that adds to the security, but it isn’t required for use.
Currently, the Galco Ankle Glove is available in black and right-hand draw only. Just a word of note about the holster: Galco states that ankle holsters are considered cross-draw, meaning it’s worn on the same side of the body as the dominant hand of the shooter. As in, a right-handed shooter will wear it on the inside of the left ankle. But the shooting hand does not change the location of the holster, meaning it’s up to the shooter to decide if it would work for them.
The Galco Ankle Glove is a great fit for those who have extended periods of deep concealment that require maximum comfort. The holster is out now with an MSRP of $179.
