Higher Quality Materials:
Made from .093" Kydex/Boltaron and fastened using a combination of Melonite coated chrome Molly steel and Black 316 INOX Stainless Steel hardware that won't scratch or rust!

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 cantangle tilts the grip away from your draw hand. A reverse cant angle tilts the towardsyour 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.

    Compared to my previous concealed carry holster, I don't understand how I was able to carry my old holster for so long. This is my forever holster.

    Would recommend to anyone

    The comfort and fit are perfect. I can sit and bend comfortably. Firearm stays in place no matter what. The claw doesn't allow any printing. Will definitely buy another one.

    AIWB Holster (LH) for Glock 23

    Posted by Bill on 27th Jul 2020

    Second Holster of this type purchased. Holster has everything I need and nothing extra. In both cases, Dara met all of my needs in a well made package at a reasonable price. I’ll be back.

    .45 ACP Kydex IWB holster

    Posted by Gary on 15th Jul 2020

    This unit needed a little adjustment, but I got it dialed in, it is a smooth draw, adjustable cant is nice, doesn't interfere with my clothing. Its my new daily carry, so it needed to be comfortable. Its a nice holster for the money.

    Custom Kydex AIWB Holster

    Posted by George on 2nd Jul 2020

    The claw conceals the grip very well. Overall the holster is a value purchase. I would have given "5 stars" but the holster on my torso rides a little high. Other than the inability to adjust the holster height, the holster is a good purchase.

    Walther PPM2 RMSC Holster

    Posted by M on 15th Mar 2020

    Dara is my first choice for holsters based on a lot of previous good experiences. For this holster, I had a few issues with the initial product delivered to me, but Dara quickly worked through all my concerns and delivered a new holster faster than I could have ever expected. My five-star rating is for 1) the updated product that I received, and 2) Dara's outstanding customer service. For those interested in the Walter PPS2 M2 RMSc holster, I recommend talking with Dara about tradeoffs with a standard cutout holster before ordering. The concept of holster coverage for the RMSc seems like a good idea; however, in my personal use, it did wind up adding a little extra bulk at my waistline that I did not care for. Ultimately, I think that I prefer a holster cutout for red dot site since to keep a slimmer profile.
