Idaho holster company Alien Gear announced that it now has the patent for its popular inside the waistband holster — a milestone for the young company.

According to the company’s statement, the patent protects the unique design comprised of a steel core insert with a multi-layered covering.

A search of USPTO shows the company’s owner, Thomas Tedder, registered to the one patent. However, the company said it has others pending for items like an outside the waistband holster and other unreleased products.
