This is another great job by Dara Holster. I had to loosen the adjustment a little for the pistol to fit, but now works perfect. Thank you Dara. Gary
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.
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.
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.
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.
Choose how you'd like to carry the holster. If you plan to carry using a method not listed on the drop down menu, please see if your specific carry method is listed under the 'SHOP HOLSTERS' section on the main menu at the top of the page.
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.
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.
We offer many different cant angles conducive to every carry method. If you plan to carry at the hip, you'll want to choose a straight draw (0° cant) or forward cant angle. The forward cant angle tilts the grip up and forward and the muzzle backwards. If you want to carry crossdraw, you'll need to choose a reverse cant angle, which tilts the grip down and back, the muzzle forward.

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.
The fit to my S&W M&P 40C with a TLR6 installed is excellent. My only comment is that I hoped it would be tighter to my body; similar to a leather pancake. Unfortunately it is not. Otherwise an excellent holster.
This is the my second holster from Dara. Well made. Extremely lite weight. Both pistols ride well and are well secure in holster. Highly recommend. Two thumbs up.
This holster is super badass, love it. I didn't have make any adjustments, my H&K VP9 with Streamlight TRL-1 HL fits like a glove. Very impressed with the imprint of the carbon fiber. Great product!!! Thanks for your attention to detail.
Just got this in and love it. Carried it the last week and it rides perfectly. Thanks for offering all the custom options Will be using more of your gear for sure!! Keep it up!
Just got it and my TLR- 6 at same time, couldn't be more happy with the holster, with light mounted it fits my Glock 26 perfectly, Best paddle design I've used on a holster.
Bought two of these excellent holsters for a Walther PPS M2, one standard and one for the same model equipped with a Crimson Trace LG-482 Laserguard. Fit and finish are perfect. Even the retention screw needed no adjustment and both passed the upside down shake test (empty gun over a bed!). Dara is an easy company to do business with and I highly recommend this product.
