Enigma isn’t a holster. Or a belt. Or a belly band. Or any other device you’ve encountered.
It’s so different, in fact, it’s in a whole new category of its own. Enigma is the world’s first concealment chassis, giving you unparalleled concealment, stability, and safety in one easy-to-wear system that will work with your daytime, evening, and weekend style.
Enigma uses high tech materials to turn your favorite Kydex holster shell into an ultra-low-profile concealment system. The heart of Enigma is the winged faceplate. Made from an ultra-light, high-strength woven polymer laminate, it stabilizes your gun while adding zero bulk to the front of the holster. Say goodbye to lumpy, bulging holster clips. Enigma is smooth, streamlined, and doesn’t pull on your clothing.
While it’s optimized for the PHLster Pro Series, Enigma will also fit other appendix carry holsters that use a Modwing, Darkwing, Raven Concealment wing, or other IWB concealment wing that uses 5/8ths hole spacing.
Dive deep enough into high-level concealed carry and you’ll find Runcible Works. Known for their experimental and obsessively innovative holster systems, Runcible Works creates bespoke, self-contained concealment systems for carrying in any attire. They combine high tech materials with sophisticated, ergonomic design principles to build deep concealment gear with the lowest possible signature. Runcible Works pioneered the concept of building the belt, holster, and accessory carriers into a single platform that functions in any environment from yoga class to entangled ground-fighting and grappling.
After years of operating in the same circles, we reached out to Runcible Works to help bring their concepts and expertise out of the mad-science laboratory and to the masses. Together, we developed a streamlined and minimalist execution of their renowned, yet often difficult to obtain, systems.
For two years, we explored materials, strategies, and executions, going back to the drawing board several times and starting from scratch. Enigma is the result of an intense and relentless collaborative process, the output of which is a unique and unprecedented piece of concealment technology and a patent pending.
With our final drafts in hand by the summer of 2020, we knew that the Enigma required a special manufacturing partnership. Known for their materials and process expertise and innovation in the tactical equipment space, AXL Advanced was the obvious choice to help us get over the finish line and make the Enigma a reality. Their capability to produce durable, low-profile equipment for hard use applications, using the advanced materials required makes them the ideal candidate for the job.
Using the latest in high tech materials and manufacturing, the heart of Enigma is the winged face-plate. Made from an ultra-light, high-strength woven polymer laminate, it stabilizes your gun while adding zero bulk to the front of the holster. Enigma’s chassis is stronger and stiffer than any comparable textile, yet it’s ultra-thin and unobtrusive. It holds up to high stress applications and can withstand repeated flexing without cracking, fraying, or breaking. And we’ve laser-cut it to be more flexible where it needs to be, while still providing structural support and stability where required.
The Enigma concealment system is modular and will attach to non-light-bearing, AIWB holster shells that use a ModWing, DarkWing, Raven Concealment wing, or other IWB concealment wing using a 5/8ths inch hole spacing.
The Enigma belt is comfortable and durable, made from mil-spec 17337 webbing. Once you’ve sized the belt to fit your waist, you can set it and forget it. Don and doff the Enigma quickly and easily using the included Fidlock magnet-assisted buckle, which provides both security and convenience. There’s no need to thread and adjust the belt every time you put it on. Securing the latch is easy and intuitive, even if your garments obscure your view of the buckle, or if you have limited mobility or hand strength. The Fidlock buckle basically locks itself, and unlatches with an easy-to-grip fob.
The buckle attachment to the face-plate is lined to help prevent direct contact between the buckle and the body. The buckle attachment also allows you to hot-swap the Fidlock for your choice of buckle and will accommodate any 1.5 inch buckle you prefer, including Cobra buckles.
