According to Lucintel, the composite technology materials market is projected to reach a value of approximately $38 billion by 2023. Thanks to innovations within the composite technology sector, there are all kinds of carbon fiber projects beginning each year that are revolutionizing everything from the way military helicopter tails are manufactured and aerospace projects, to automotive usages and law enforcement.
According to Military Times, a popular manufacturer of premium hand-crafted gun holsters and belts plans on utilizing composite tech for its newest carbon fiber project: “Project Stealth.”
1791 Gunleather introduced the next evolution in premium leather holsters, which will combine American heavy native steer hide with state-of-the-art flexible carbon fiber for the first of its kind: a holster using a proprietary, patent-pending combo of the two holster materials.
“Project Stealth is like no holster you’ve seen before in terms of its contemporary, elegant look and exceptional, high-tech performance,” said Ramiro M. Romani, CEO of 1791 Gunleather. “The patent-pending Project Stealth series of holsters is where luxury, old-world craftsmanship, and the finest quality materials unite to deliver the most intriguing and fashionable EDC holsters ever seen. This outside-the-waistband series of holsters is not only lightweight and flexible, but extremely durable and aesthetically stunning,” he said. “Project Stealth represents the perfect marriage between classic and tactical, and will undoubtedly lead the way for many more provocative 1791 Gunleather products in the future.”
This innovative material combination will result in lightweight, strong, and malleable holsters, for safe storage and quick and easy release. Additionally, despite the state-of-the-art tech utilized to craft these holsters, they are actually hitting the market at even more affordable prices compared to some of their leather-only holster counterparts. Project Stealth holsters are hitting the market at less than $100.
There are all kinds of carbon fiber usages, including within the aircraft, automobile, and aerospace markets — but this new method of holster production can lead to changes in law enforcement and personal safety.
