Bianchi Introduces its First Ranger™ Concealment Nylon Holster with Auto Retention™

May 08, 2007
Temecula, CA

Bianchi® International, part of the BAE Systems Products Group, announces today the introduction of the new Model 4584 Evader™ holster, another Bianchi first. In response to demand from law enforcement and civilian markets, the Evader is a soft nylon, concealment holster featuring open top and internal firearm retention capabilities.

Recognized worldwide for its quality, innovative designs and personal service, Bianchi International has introduced numerous “firsts” to the law enforcement, military and shooting sports markets since 1958, including the first molded nylon holster, the first thumb break holster and the first duty retention holster, among many others. Bianchi combines classic functionality with cutting-edge performance and reliability.

The Model 4584 Evader from Bianchi combines several exclusive elements making this holster unique: the durability of Bianchi’s soft nylon Ranger™ holsters with Perma-Fit™, the rigidity of a reinforced, open top holster and the security of an internal retention system with Bianchi’s exclusive Auto Retention™ and patent pending FingerLok™ internal retention device.

Providing a level of quality few holsters can match, the Evader features Bianchi’s trilaminate construction – a durable ballistic weave fabric exterior, high-density closed-cell foam center for strength and a smooth nylon inner lining for rapid firearm holstering and draw. The Evader’s reinforced, non-collapsing open top design enables smooth, one-handed holstering. Ranger’s Perma-Fit feature allows the holster to form to, and maintain the shape of, the equipment you use, for a consistently snug fit.

The low profile design of the Evader effectively conceals firearms and is extremely comfortable with its high ride and close-to-body carry. Bianchi’s FingerLok internal retention device provides Auto Retention as it automatically secures the handgun once holstered and provides an easy release for firearm draw, enabling officers to immediately access their firearm in any situation.

Featuring dual snap belt loops, the Model 4584 Evader fits belt widths up to 1.75”, providing easy on/off convenience. As with other reliable, high quality concealment holsters from Bianchi, the Evader is easy-to-clean and is ideal for basic sidearm carry, on-duty and off-duty concealment situations.

The Model 4584 Evader fits most popular medium and large frame autos, and is available in black, ballistic weave finish with an MSRP of $29.95.
