The Spartan™ is an inside the waistband (IWB) leather and Kydex® hybrid holster for concealed carry. Designed to be worn behind the hip at 4:00 or 5:00, the Spartan® is a more economical version of the MTAC® Holster that provides comfortable concealed carry at a lower price.
Features of the Spartan™ Holster
- Leather backing is comfortable against the skin
- Two mounting clips spread the weight of larger firearms
- Tuckable design enables shirt to be tucked over the firearm with only the clips showing on belt
- Cant adjustable- Change the cant for optimal carry comfort
- Ride-height adjustable- Get your perfect grip
The Spartan™ Holster has a leather backing that is the most comfortable material holsters can be made of. It provides a soft flexible material that when placed against the body does not rub or pinch. The Spartan™ backing is is only a single layer of leather which allows the hardware to show and be felt on the backside. Since there is nothing on the rear side of the hardware you may need to add moleskin to keep the hardware from pinching or rubbing your skin.
The Kydex® body on the Spartan™ provides a rigid material that is fit to each firearm and maintains its shape even with the pistol un-holstered. The smooth low-friction surface allows for a fast draw and easy one-handed re-holstering of the firearm. The all-Kydex® body will not bend or stretch over time and is impervious to sweat and solvents.
The Spartan’s Kydex® body is also interchangeable allowing you to have one holster for all of your firearms.
The “Slide” Holster
The slide holster option allows the user to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357). The slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so that longer guns may ‘slide’ through the end of the holster.
Slide versions of outside the waistband holsters are recommended for range work only. While carrying a longer firearm in a slide holster, the end is left exposed and the user must be careful not to bump the exposed muzzle up against anything that might dislodge the firearm, i.e. sitting down in an arm chair.
Comp-Tac® fit checks EVERY holster with the actual make and model firearm ordered. As a result, the leather backing may show slight wear marks or scratches from the fit process.
Leather is natural product with unique characteristics that differ from hide to hide. Due to these differences shade and color variations are to be expected. This is not a fault or flaw in leather, Comp-Tac® uses genuine natural top-grain cowhide to make all of our Comp-Tac® leather products.
Returns/ Exchanges: Due to the cosmetic vulnerability of leather, Comp-Tac® reserves the right to charge a 20% restocking fee on any leather returns or exchanges that are deemed to be damaged or abused.
The Spartan™ is purchased with the Standard Clip attached.
Additional clips and styles can be purchased on our Holster Parts and Hardware page:
Standard Clip: A “P” shaped clip that slides over the top of the belt and hooks underneath. Holster may be put on while belt is already threaded through loops. Not recommended for nylon belts.
C-Clip: A “C” shaped clip that grips the belt at the top and bottom. The belt must be fed through clips while putting it on. These clips have less visible surface area showing during concealment. C-clips work with all types of belts, ideal for nylon.
Velcro® Clip: Clips slide over the waistband of pants and attach to hook on inside of belt. Holster attaches before belt is put on through pant loops. Velcro® Clips offer the highest level of concealment with no part of the clip visible outside of the pants. The loop is provided with these clips. The easiest way to attach this clip is to a belt with the loop already sewn on. Please see Kydex®-Reinforced Contour Belts for this option.
Thread-On Clip: The Thread-On Clip is a completely solid clip that the belt must be slide through when putting on. The Thread-On clips are recommended for belts that are less than 1/4" thick.
IMPORTANT NOTICE! We no longer offer Kydex® Bodies for Generation 1 leather backings. If your MTAC™ was purchased between April to September of 2010, please read below.
