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.

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.

    2nd One

    Posted by Ron Schlief on 22nd Dec 2019

    I own many high-end holsters, and, surprisingly, the Dara holster f/my Glock MODEL G23 w/Streamlight TLR-8 has become my favorite. It appears that I am going to be just as satisfied w/this one f/my Colt 1911. No need to say more.

    I switched to Dara a few months back and the two for my Glocks were delivered almost immediately. The fit is perfect. Don't look anyplace else.

    OWB Holsters

    Posted by Bill Gordon on 8th Nov 2019

    I have several OWB holsters , all left-hand, from DARA Holsters and each one is a perfect fit (HKVP9 and VP9SK, FN 509 TAC w/coverage of the threaded -barrel end, and WALTHER PPQ Q4 w/coverage of the threaded-barrel end, and SIG P320 Carry); all have a slight wrap bottom and are excellent, strong, Kydex holsters; best I've ever bought. I recommend DARA Holsters to everyone I shoot with. Excellent quality!
