Ballistic Nylon

Ballistic nylon is a thick, tough, synthetic nylon fabric used for a variety of applications. Laboratory tests have been run and the 1050 denier fabric is the strongest and most durable fabric for its denier weight level. As it resists abrasion and tearing, ballistic nylon is typically used for luggage.


Cordura® is a high-performance nylon designed to be longlasting and resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs. Learn more at Invista


Denier is a unit of weight for measuring the fineness of threads of silk, rayon, nylon etc. Denier refers to the weight, not the strength, of the fabric.


No cover over screen or keypad for ease of use while using stylus or wearing gloves.


Access to peripherals without removing device from case


Designed to place unit in charging cradle without removing from the case.


Clear cover on screen and keypad for added protection from dirt and moisture.


Designed with insulating material and an internal pocket to use a heat pack (optional) for use in cold environments.


Worn on belt or used with a shoulder strap, can also be mounted on forklift. Great solution when unit is not used often.


Hypalon® is a trademark for synthetic rubber noted for its resistance to chemicals, temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light


Designed with insulating material, works like a coat by retaining heat so unit can be used in cold environments.


Kevlar® brand fiber is an innovative technology from DuPont that combines high strength with light weight to help dramatically improve the performance of a variety of consumer and industrial products. When Kevlar is spun, the resulting fiber has great tensile strength. Depending on the application, manufacturers can choose the type of Kevlar® that is appropriate for the intended use.


Kydex, combines the advantageous properties of both the acrylic and the PVC components. From acrylic, it obtains superior rigidity and formability; from PVC, outstanding toughness, chemical resistance and good interior finish ratings. Parts formed of Kydex will be much more rigid and will deform less when loaded. This is of particular importance in deep formed parts with thin wall sections. Kydex offers rigidity along with a high degree of toughness and resilience.

Multi-position Belt Loop

Multi-position belt loop allows the user to wear the holster high or low on the belt, and to swivel it to the front or back so the holster does not get in the way of a person sitting. It enables the user to position the holster for better comfort on the waist.


Neoprene or polychloroprene is a family of synthetic rubbers. It is used in a wide variety of applications, such as in wetsuits, laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), electrical insulation, car fan belts etc.

Neoprene is the trade name used by DuPont. Its chemical inertness makes it well suited for industrial applications such as gaskets, hoses, and corrosion-resistant coatings. It can also be used as padding in external metal cases to protect the contents while allowing a snug fit.

Neoprene is used in some situations where abrasion can be a problem as well. It can be found on a number of products today, including protective covers for items such as cellular telephones. It is also lightweight.

OP Case

This design is an Operating Case. The unit can be used without removing it from the case. This design is used when the operator is using the hand held frequently. This solution also gives extra protection from drops. An Op Case can be worn on a belt or carried on the shoulder with a shoulder strap (Waist belt or Shoulder strap optional).


Designed with straps for mounting on the forklift or a pole at the workstation.


Always ready to plug-in to AC/DC power
