High Threat Concealment brings the Element-i holster to its concealed carry holster series, offering concealment fans a molded design with wing attachment.
The Element-i features a Boltaron thermoplastic construction, hand-finished for reliability. An ambidextrous rig, the Element-i provides a one over-hook attachment that is capable of adjusting up to 15-degrees. The IWB holster also offers the company’s EzTRAK index feature, delivering index points for “confident re-holstering.” In addition, the Element-i looks to help AIWB fans with further concealment with the added option of an appendix carry wing. The wing applies pressure against the wearer’s pants, tilting the grip of the gun into the body to further eliminate printing.

HTC says the holster is packed with features but does not opt for any adjustable tensioners. The decision to eliminate adjustable tension was made to streamline the holster and ensure durability.
“The Element- i does not have adjustable tensioners, and on the outside, appears to be less accommodating than other holsters,” HTC said in a statement on its site. “Throughout testing and evaluation; each model pistol was drawn 2000 times. Each draw tension remained the same at 500, 1000 and 2000th draw absent undue wear to the firearm or inside of the holster. We have streamlined every process to make the holster as reliable and durable that HTC is known for, with a price tag for everyone.”
Accommodating full-sized and compact pistols, even those sporting suppressor height iron sights, the Element-i is available through HTC with a price tag of $39.99.
