The Custom Kydex Paddle Holster is made from thicker .093" Kydex/Boltaron and fastened using Melonite and Zinc coated hardened steel hardware. This holster sits on the outside of the waistband using a paddle belt attachment. The paddle fits between the body and pants securely, catching the belt with two point of contact. The paddle holster offers the stability needed for most everyday activities, and also the convenience of taking the holster on and off quickly. The OWB Holster also comes with the option to purchase a paddle and loop for times when more stability is needed.

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 note that the Paddle Holster will accommodate up to a 2" belt width, and cannot be used with Duty Belts.

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. 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.

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.

Cant Angles:
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.

Custom Notes / Photo Upload:
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.

    OWB for my X

    Published by Paul RevEar on 30th Aug 2018

    After extensive research I decided to try a Dara brand holster. I'm glad I did! I ordered this OWB paddle holster for the range/training. I like the paddle idea so I can keep the gun in it somewhere and not have to undo my belt to put it on. This paddle is not oversized like many, but just enough to be secure and do the job. I ordered Coyote for my 19x, it looks great! I tightened the retention just a bit and got the perfect fit. I was happy to buy local (NC) and support American workers. My turnaround time was 2 weeks, and well worth the short wait for a lifetime lasting product. Thank you Team Dara.

    Awesome. I was little worried when they told they would have difficulty making the holster for my gun. But they did an excellent job. Would buy from them again.

    OWB, Custom model, paddle retention

    Published by Alan Reeder on 22nd Jun 2018

    This was my second DARA holster, received this one in about a week, which was a pretty amazing feat, in itself, !!
    The thicker, .093" Kydex/Boltaron, and heavy duty, hardened steel hardware is where the DARA holsters truly rise above all their competitors.
    You couldn't buy a better, more precisely designed and constructed holster, if your life depended on it. Custom fit (exactly to your specific weapon make and model) is second to none. Attention to detail is mind-boggling, and just simply impressive !! Almost limitless options for whatever specifics you need in a holster, you basically have the ability to design it yourself, then have the excellent craftsperson at DARA build it for you !!
    That, along with very competitive price points, seriously deserves your consideration if you're in the market for a custom-made, premium quality holster for your favorite handgun/duty weapon !!
    Like I told their Customer Service folks, it's so rare to find a company in this country that still has its shit together, and these people definitely do !! Hand-made in the USA, and damn proud of it, and I'm damn proud of the two I own !!
    Thanks to every member of the DARA team, keep up the great work !

    Custom Kydex for G17 W/RMR

    Published by Jonathan on 14th Apr 2018

    I am impressed with the quality of the product I received. The fit, finish, and packing were all top notch. I chose the darker brown leather appearance, it came out awesome! The attention to detail is real - but not due to the mold alone. Let's face it, a mold is a mold. But I found the quality to be all around. Even the packing that contained my holster was appealing to the eye as it contained a nice graphic design with the Dara name on it. Receiving my quality holster this way edged me into believing that the company cares for the little details. Retention preference happened to be ideal (for me) right out of the box. I was a little apprehensive about the style of paddle used. In the end, I find that I prefer the low profile paddle, high profile hooking retention. Excellent product Dara! Now, just make this for the CZ 75 SP01 Tactical and we can be friends!
