Custom Kydex OWB Holster


Product Description

Custom Kydex Outside the Waistband Holster. This OWB Holster sits close to the belt with zero movement, as every open carry holster should. Made from .093" Kydex/Boltaron, using Melonite and Zinc finished hardened steel hardware, our materials are far superior than our competition. Each holster comes with a Military grade rubber retention system, as well as a lifetime warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee. This holster is NOT meant to be concealable. It can be concealed depending on the type of firearm you have, under a shirt. But that is not the purpose of the holster.

Don't forget to check out our OWB Mag Carriers, as well as our IWB Holsters to get the most out of concealed carry.

Please choose your exact make and model. Failure to mention any details that influence the external dimensions of your firearm will result in fitment issue.

  1. Outstanding OWB Holster S&W Shield .45

    Posted by Chris Toothman on 20th Apr 2017

    The custom OWB holster is excellent fit and finish for my Smith and Wesson Shield .45. I compared my DARA holster to several other kydex holsters I've purchased and I can honestly say that DARA holsters feel better. The parts, tolerances and kydex texture just feels like higher quality and better craftsmanship than most other holsters I've purchased.

  2. Perfect fit

    Posted by Michael Stanton on 9th Mar 2017

    Perfect fit for my Sig 1911 style ultra carry. Extremely satisfied!


    Posted by Mark Hinton on 5th Mar 2017

    Very happy with my new holster. Quality workmanship and materials!

  4. Amazing Quality and Fit

    Posted by Derek on 23rd Jan 2017

    Couldn't ask for a better Kydex holster. My first Dara was for a Glock 32 was done up exactly to my specifications. Fit, feel, and quality are amazing!


    Posted by Unknown on 21st Jan 2017

    Purchased a DARA OWB cross-draw holster for my P30SK because DARA was one of the very few (if not only manufacturer) who made a cross-draw holster to fit the P30SK with a Truglo Micro Tac green laser. The holster fits this pistol and laser combo like a second skin. Very impressed. Will buy from DARA again. Jim, Greensboro, NC

  6. Besy Kydex Holster Yet

    Posted by JohnB on 16th Jan 2017

    Excellent quality; almost too many options for configuration (in a good way), all at a fair price. Highly recommended.

  7. Perfect!

    Posted by Charlie Frankel on 29th Dec 2016

    I sought out what I believed to be every source possible for a OWB holster for my S+W 9mmC with a factory installed Crimson Trace laser. I even called the S+W customer support line to no avail. I couldn't believe that I had bought a firearm that had no holster for it on the market. I reached out to a couple of S+W Owners online groups that I belong to and received a suggestion that I contact Dara. It took about 5 weeks to manufacture and receive the holster, which is a perfect fit for the weapon. From my initial call to Dara to receipt of the merchandise, it was a 5-Star experience. This company is run by and employs customer-centric professionals. I will go to them for all future holster needs. In this world of lack of service, it's great to see a company that still provides aggressive customer service and stands behind their products with a lifetime warranty.

  8. Glock 40 for woods carry

    Posted by Jorge on 29th Dec 2016

    I was having trouble finding a decent hip holster for my G40. I knew that for a gun of that size, a good holster would be the deciding factor in whether or not I would be comfortable while carrying it on long hikes.

    I reasearched DARA and decided they were the solution to my problem. I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of decisions I had to make while ordering my holster but I found all the information I needed within the DARA website to make informed choices. I also appreciate that they are upfront about the wait time.

    I compared my DARA holster to my 1911 holster, which is from a well known manufacturer at a similar price point. I can honestly say that my DARA holster simply feels better. The materials, the fit, even the texture just feels like higher quality and better craftsmanship.

    I held off on writing this review until I had a chance to try out my holster on one of my hikes. In a nutshell, it performed as I hoped it would.

    DARA has become my go-to company for holsters. I feel that a longer wait time for higher quality is well worth it.

  9. perfect!

    Satisfied with the quality of work that you guys put in...keep up the good work!

  10. Custom Kydex OWB Holster - First Time Buyer

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Nov 2016

    I had purchased a G43 which I subsequently customized with a laser light and an extended slide release. I was in need of an OWB holster and did some research. I settled on Dara Holsters based on reviews, product made in the US and the lifetime warranty. I included a photo of the glock but was not sure they would meet my needs. Was I ever surprised. The holster was delivered right on time. It 'fit like a glove'. Dara is a class act. Top grade materials, meeting their commitment time frame and made in the USA! All is good.

  11. OWB Glock 34 Holster

    Posted by kntrdr2000@gmail.com on 16th Nov 2016

    Excellent as always! This my third holster purchase from DARA and I will not buy anything else! Thank you!

  12. Best holster I've seen

    Posted by tvphotog on 22nd Oct 2016

    Leather or Kydex, the Dara holster which I received is the best of any I've seen or tried. Mine is an OWB with a single belt loop which is fixed. The holster fits the gun and light exactly, is minimalistic in design, and I customized it to be just as I wanted. It is the gold standard for me. The only thing that I would change is to have a belt attachment that is adjustable like the Blade-Tech Tec-Lok. My solution for the Dara was to buy an inexpensive single blade attachment for my smaller belt size, which I can screw on to replace the larger belt loop attachment. I have already ordered another holster in a different color from Dara.


    Posted by WD on 14th Oct 2016

    I choose cross draw OWB with 30 degree reverse cant for ease of use in seated positions. Holster is extremely comfortable for long periods of time. Double loop allows adding or subtracting 15 degrees to the cant by moving one of the two mounting screws. I moved to 45 degrees and have no fear that the gun will fall out because the holster has excellent retention. The ride height is also adjustable (very adjustable if the loop is turned 180 degrees) by changing the holes selected for the mounting screws. The double loop can also be worn over a belt loop by placing the belt in the first side of the loop, then under the pants belt loop, and then through the other side of the loop. I have done "show and tell" to all my CCW friends. - - BEST HOLSTER EVER !!!

  14. Excellent Quality Worth the Wait

    Posted by Justin on 15th Sep 2016

    If you're looking for a great quality holster for a bargain price, you've come to the right place. I have to say the wait was a little longer than I expected and a little longer than was estimated when I ordered. But, the finished product is excellent. It fits my HK VP40 like a glove, has excellent retention and showed up on my door step just as a I had ordered it. I'm left handed and it's hard to find a non-universal holster. Dara is perfect for me. I can definitely see myself coming back to make another purchase.

  15. High Quality! Worth the Wait

    Posted by wargo@aowireless.com on 31st Aug 2016

    It took about 3 weeks to get my holster but I am impressed. The fit is perfect and needed almost no adjustment. I bought one to go with my G19 with light attached. Really good quality. I'm going to get another for my CZ.

  16. Glock 40 mos holster

    Posted by David on 20th Aug 2016

    Looking for a holster for Glock 40 mos? I stumbled across Dara while looking for a holster for Glock 40 mos . Took a chance and ordered one. Exactly what I wanted. Price was very reasonable and quality is excellent. There is a wait but it is well worth it. Good folks to do business with.

  17. Cheap Perfection

    Posted by Steve on 12th Aug 2016

    How do you make a perfect holster from a picture? My only guess is magic or experience in wizardry. I've bought other kydex holsters from local shops, but the quality is novice at best. From the quality of construction, durability, and fit, this thing is amazing. It is also the reason I have one of Dara's holsters for every pistol I own. For anyone considering one, there is a bit of a wait. With a little patience though, you won't ever need another holster for the same set up. Thanks again everyone.

  18. very good

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Aug 2016

    Finally recieved my holster. I was really surprised to see the looks of the holster. I thinks it was made very well & the function of it is very good.

  19. Easy draw

    Posted by Richard on 27th Jul 2016

    I got this holster with the forward cant, and when carried in the 4 O'clock position, drawing and re-holstering is easy and comfortable.

  20. unsurpaased quality

    Posted by Yoni Eizicovics on 23rd Jul 2016

    Right out of the packaging I was able to see that this holster boasted quality. From the moment I held it I was able to tell that this holster was created with great attention to detail. It is extremely comfortable to wear and fits the pistol perfectly. I couldnt ask for more in a holster.
    Thank You to the entire Dara team.
