Better Design:
With our minimalist single clip design, the AIWB Holster for Appendix Carry is slim with no extra material to add excess bulk or weight. This holster comes with a full sweat shield to keep hard edges from the body. Our .093" material covers all the essentials, including the magazine release and trigger, as any holster should. Also featured is our Military Grade Rubber Adjustable Retention System that allows you to adjust the retention with a Philip's head screwdriver.

How to Order:

Start by choosing your firearm model. We have two drop down menus that list each Manufacturer and Model in alphabetical order. If you don't see your firearm, we may not have that model available just yet. You can contact Customer Support to see if your model is available.

Holster Color:
The next step is choosing your Holster Color. We do provide swatches on the order form, but larger pictures can be found on our FAQ page here.

Draw Hand:
Choose how you'd like to carry the holster. 

Belt Attachment:
Choose your desired belt attachment from the drop down menu, along with the corresponding belt size. 1.5" is the most common belt size. 1.75" is most common for tactical belts, and 2"-2.25" is common for duty belts.


Ride Height:
This is how your holster and firearm will sit in relation to the belt, vertically. A low ride height put the grip of the gun lower in the belt line. Be careful with a low ride height, as the grip of the firearm can become buried easily with a reverse cant angle. A mid ride height, which is the most common, will put the top of the belt in line with where the trigger guard meets the frame. The high ride height will put the holster higher up on the belt, giving you a full grip. To see the ride height and cant angle chart, scroll through the product pictures. PLEASE NOTE: The Grip Concealment Claw will not work with a low ride height.

Cant Angles:
We offer many different cant angles conducive to every carry method. If you plan to carry at 12 o'clock, you'll want to choose a straight draw (0° cant). The forward cant angle tilts the grip away from your draw hand. A reverse cant angle tilts the towards your draw hand. PLEASE NOTE: The Grip Concealment Claw works best with straight draw.

Custom Notes:
This is where you'll want to bring any customizations up. We need to know about switched magazine release buttons, extended mag release buttons, suppressor height sights and other such modifications.

    I like this holster. It actually rides comfortably. That is no small task as it’s for a five inch barreled S&W M&P. I ordered it wondering how that would go. And I’m pleased. It allows me to carry a full sized 17 rd pistol under a loose t shirt.

    AIWB holster

    Posted by Aaron on 6th Nov 2021

    Fits my gun well, feels very secure. The holster sits kinda high causing it to print unless I wear a supper baggy shirt. Because of that I don’t think I’ll actually be able to wear it outside my house.

    Excellent fit and finish

    Posted by Adam on 5th Nov 2021

    Only took about 7 days from ordering to when it was in my hands The quality is top notch. All edges are clean and my gun fit with no adjustment needed. It is obvious they take pride in building these. Nice work Dara team!

    All around great

    Posted by Zach Leonhiser on 24th Oct 2021

    Holster and claw combo work fantastic, I am skinnier frame build but can still conceal my FNX 45 tac perfectly. Website says 2-10 lead time, production started on my holster the day after and I received it about 9 days after order placed. Happy I found Dara and will be getting more holsters from them soon.

    AIWB for Sig Sauer P365

    Posted by Michael on 19th Sep 2021

    Ordered on 9/4/21 had my holsters in hand on 9/14/21. Much sooner than I expected. I’m really impressed with the craftsmanship and fit of this holster. Retention from the factory was on point and the carbon fiber looks great. In addition to all of that it’s comfortable to wear even when I’m on my motorcycle. I feel confident that I’ll purchase again from this company. Fast shipping. Excellent product and fair price!

    Best Holster

    Posted by Joey Henslee on 2nd Sep 2021

    This is the best holster I have ever purchased. Comfortable. The tail piece helps tuck the weapon to your body. Retention is distinct and audible. Superior holster.

    Good but not great

    Posted by Chris P on 16th Aug 2021

    This holster is my first kydex holster. It looks amazing, feels good and when i inserted my pistol it clicked in so nicely. Two problems is holster sits too high on my belt so my belly make it stick out and print on the shirt. There is no cant to the clip and is not tuckable. The tab thing I paid extra for seems to do little to nothing but get caught on my belt when putting it on. I want to love this holster but those little things are going to make it join my collection of average holsters I can't really use. If the clip was an inch higher it would be amazing. Dara: Hi Chris, thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. An AIWB Holster has to sit high on the belt, because you need to be able to a) sit comfortably and b) have enough space to be able to get a good purchase on the grip to draw. Also, the cant angle is chosen during the ordering process, we make the holster based off the specs ordered. While we do offer an adjustable cant, tuckable clip with a different holster model, this one is not advertised as having those options. I'm assuming the "tab" that you are referring to is the "claw". This is free and not an upcharge. It's supposed to push against the belt to bring the grip into the body and prevent printing. Please reach out to us if you're having issues. We're here to help!
