A 3-in-1 Hellcat Holster? The Weber Trifecta

Getting into the world of concealed carry can be a little daunting and it’s something you obviously have to learn first-hand and do so safely. Guns command our respect, and they should have it because of their lethality. So, strapping a gun inside your waistband or carrying one everyday on your belt can present a lot of challenges. One of the challenges we all have to wrestle with is the challenge of finding a holster.

The Trifecta Holster is sold by Weber Tactical and is a 3-in-1 concealment holster that can be configured and worn in three different positions.

There are so many ways to carry a gun every day. To name a few, there are shoulder holsters, ankle holsters, pocket holsters, thigh holsters, brassiere holsters, inside-the-waistband holsters (IWB), outside-the-waistband holsters (OWB) and appendix carry holsters. All of these holsters fit different clothing styles and purposes. With all these options, how do you know which one is best for you? Unfortunately, it comes through trial and error, which also usually costs time and money.

The Trifecta Concealment Holster from Weber Tactical is meant to be a holster to allow users to try out all the carry methods without purchasing multiple holsters.

The Do-Anything Holster?

Thankfully, today I have an interesting alternative for you. Weber Tactical makes a holster called the Trifecta Concealment Holster, and this holster is a 3-in-1 solution to make finding your exact holster a little easier, and give you one that can also transform to fit different needs. Specifically, this holster can be changed to be carried in the three most popular methods today: OWB carry, IWB carry (usually at the 3 and 5 o’clock positions) and appendix carry positions.

Parts of the Trifecta holster
The Trifecta Concealment Holster ships with a mod wing with adjustable depth, OWB shell, a Kydex retention piece for your EDC, and a heavy-duty metal belt clip.

The Trifecta comes with all the necessary parts with a purchase price of $84, which means you don’t have to buy a bunch of different parts. Also, as far as holsters like this go, there really isn’t that many parts, and swapping styles can be done by simply removing four bolts. So, it’s pretty easy to change this thing back and forth.

The Trifecta Concealment Holster can be put into the perfect appendix carry position so that you can carry your EDC that way.

That being said, from a tactical perspective I would advise that you don’t switch your carry methods all the time. Instead, find one and use that one every day. Why? Because if you’re always switching, how will you perfect your grip, draw and presentation onto target? You need consistency to be good at these things. What this holster does is let you save both your wallet and time while trying out different methods before you settle on one.

If you remove the mod wing from your Trifecta Concealment Holster you will be able to carry IWB in the 3 o’clock and 5 o’clock positions with ease.

Hands-On

The quality of the Trifecta is right up there with some of the best Kydex holsters on the market. This holster had a very snug positive lock on my Hellcat that properly secured the trigger. All the hardware on the holster is highly durable too, especially its metal clip for IWB carry. The Trifecta has my approval on build quality and safety.

The Trifecta Holster can be worn in an outside-the-waistband concealment option for those that prefer to carry their EDC in that mode.

The one thing that I didn’t like about the design was the fact that I can’t grip and draw the gun properly from the OWB position. The OWB cover for my Hellcat holster didn’t allow enough room for my fingers to get high enough on the grip. This means I would be drawing my pistol with a bad grip, which is not ideal.

Conclusion

All in all, the Trifecta will be a great holster to help you figure out which method you’d prefer to carry in, and as far as combination holsters go this is the best one I have seen. So, if you think it sounds like it could help you out, I’d suggest you give it a try. But if you do, I recommend that you definitely pick a carry method and marry yourself to it, train with it and commit to it every day.
