Black Arch Hybrid Holsters with Dri-Matrix Backers

Black Arch Holsters


Logan, UT – November 3, 2016 – ( – Black Arch Holsters, a manufacturer of hybrid holsters, announced today the release the Dri-Matrix backer. This all-new synthetic backer has an advanced composite construction that offers greater comfort and moisture wicking ability while also protecting the wearer’s gun from sweat.

The Dri-Matrix backer was designed to provide maximum user comfort while avoiding the issues of durability and condensation found in many other synthetic backers. The key to making this possible is a 3D mesh that transfers pressure over a larger area (providing comfort for the wearer) and allows for the lateral flow of vapor through the backer. This lateral airflow, combined with a surface layer of high density leather and a polymer sweat barrier, allows air to flow through the holster while preventing sweat from reaching the wearer’s gun. The leather face also provides a much more durable surface than many other synthetic backers and won’t degrade over time.

This advanced backer was designed specifically for Black Arch’s Protos-M family of modular holsters. This means that while you can buy a new Protos-M with a Dri-Matrix backer, current Protos-M owners can also buy the new backer separately and easily upgrade their holster.
