The Bianchi IWB Holsters are amazing inside the waistband holsters for a wide array of firearms like the Beretta 8045 Cougar Mini, Glock 19, and H&K USP Compact. Crafted with a leather-made high back design to protect the torso from rough edges, it also prevents sweat from accumulating inside the gun parts and causing corrosion. Not only does it conceal the handgun perfectly, it also protects the wearer from pinching and rough edges of the firearm. When choosing a holster, make sure that you check the holster is for right hand or left hand gun users. If you are a left hander, you cannot use a right hand type holster to hold your gun… but you knew that already!

Carrying a concealed firearm can give you the protection you need whenever you go. However, in most cases, the larger the firearm you are concealing, the more uncomfortable and more limiting on your body movement it will be. However, Bianchi is one of the leading holster manufacturer in this category. Bianchi is one of the world’s finest producers of holsters, duty gear and accessories. It all started during the 1960s by John Bianchi who wants to create a holster that is not only effective but also comfortable for the wearer. They have several types of concealment holsters but the most popular among them is the professional model 100 holsters which are more popularly known as Bianchi 100 Holster.

The Bianchi 100 Holster is a type of hip holster that specialised in disguising the gun by hiding it inside the waistband. Even though it is placed inside the waistband, the gun will not harm your body because of the high back design that covers the gun’s butt. The wearer’s thigh is also protected by the holster that fully covers the gun’s barrel.

What makes Bianchi 100 Holster a great holster is its material. The cowhide used is of high quality and more durable than synthetic leather. It also lasts longer compared to other holsters crafted with cheaper material. The cowhide also prevents sweat from entering the gun that will cause rust. A spring-steel clip on the holster also makes sure that it sticks to the wearer’s waistband. The holster can be used with or without belts because of the non-slip material that covers the holster. All of these features make Bianchi 100 Holster one of the best in its category.

As like any other leather-made materials, you need to break the holster in. Try to un-holster and re-holster your gun into the Bianchi 100 Holster at least one hundred times to make sure that it is suitable for a quick draw. The holster also needs to be at your strong side because of its design. If you mainly use your right hand to draw your gun, wear it on the right side of your body.

Wearing a concealment holster is quite easy because they require minimal installation. However, you can still go to gun handling classes to learn the right way to wear concealment holsters. Even though the Bianchi 100 Holster is quite pricey, it fulfils its purpose effortlessly. It is also more durable than other holsters made from different hides. If you are finding a holster that keeps your gun in check and close to your strong hand, there is none other more suitable than Bianchi 100 Holster.

 

The Good

The Bianchi 100 series IWB Holsters does its job well. It support a wide range of firearms but still maintains the same firm fit that you need to prevent your pistol from excess movement while engaged in vigorous activities. It is also made from good, high quality leather that gives maximum protection to the wearer and the finish of the gun. The Bianchi IWB Holster exhibits simplicity in its design and while extremely adaptable, may not fit optimally optimally for everyone. Bianchi IWB Holsters can fit perfectly into your trouser pockets given that you are not prone to wearing skin-tight jeans. The presentation can be expected to be smooth,  but this is totally depends how you wear your firearm, body size/shape and training.

The Bad

This applies mostly if you choose to wear as AIWB (appendix carry inside the waistband).  It also will impact different body types in different manners…  so just be aware.  I would not call it a dealbreaker.

Despite the many plus points on its design and comfort, all that disappears when you are sitting (riding a motorcycle, horse, or anything that requires bending at the waist). This is because the butt and barrel of the gun will poke both your torso and thigh. You cannot bend your body while sitting as it will deal a massive pain to your body parts. However, this only happens if you are putting the Bianchi IWB Holsters at the front. This problem is not that glaring if you put it at the sides or at the back of your body.seated view of AIWB holster

Another potential quibble with Bianchi 100 IWB Holsters is that depending on how tight your belt is, it can be difficult to re-holstered with just one hand. This is because there is no stiffener along the top of the holster to assist in keeping the gap open while re holstering.
