The Express Papoose goes on the PHLster Enigma Express, surrounding and smoothing over rough edges that may cause discomfort. It is made from premium fabric and comprises a pistol pouch and belt sleeve.

The Express Papoose does not fit the Standard or Lightbearing Enigmas.

Sport Belt compatibility: the pistol pouch works with PHLster’s Sport Belt, but the belt sleeve does not, as it’s made for the stock 1.5″ wide belt and doesn’t fit over the 3″ wide elastic section of the sport belt.

The Express Papoose is made out of 520E Durastretch® Nylon Tweave, which was engineered for 4-way stretch, superior durability, and abrasion resistance. Tweave’s gentle coarseness gives it just enough friction against the skin to help keep the belt from riding up the back while enhancing comfort.

NOTE: Because this is a synthetic material, it will melt when exposed to high temperatures. If your holster does not cover the muzzle and/or comp, DO NOT reholster a hot gun until the muzzle and/or comp returns to room temperature.

Please use the custom order page if you need a Papoose made from a natural fabric, or one made to accommodate a pouch mounted next to your holster on the faceplate.

Once you’ve received your Papoose, watch this video for installation instructions.

    I was waiting for this to be in stock and had inquired about timing. Got a message with a heads up, thank you Jon!, and ordered it day it was stocked. Love the papoose! It’s relived some comfort issues and hot spots I was having with the Enigma Express, on the belt and on the muzzle area. It’s not itchy or too warm. Just right!!

    It is rare that I try a product and exclaim that it is a game changer immediately, but the Papoose is and truly improves the fundamental level of comfort you get with the Enigma holster system. I no longer get belt bite around my hips, and the design of the Papoose allows the main body of the Enigma to move with you better to accommodate sitting, roundhouse kicks, and everything else.
