Very comfortable. Snugs and conceals gun well. I will get another for my Glock.
The Dara Custom Kydex Inside the Waistband Holster functions just like it's no-nonsense name. The IWB fits inside your waistband for the ultimate concealed carry holster. The trigger guard, magazine release and slide are all covered by material. Made from .093" Kydex/Boltaron, using Melonite and Zinc finished hardened steel hardware, our materials are far superior than our competition and will last twice as long. Each holster comes with an adjustable Military grade rubber retention system, as well as a lifetime warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee.
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.

For a professional review of the Dara IWB Holster.
I did months of research before choosing Dara and I definitely made the right decision. These are high quality holsters. Love the website. My quick ship IWB Glock 43 holster is very comfortable to carry. I wish Dara continued success. Chad (TX)
When I purchased an IWB holster for my Sig P938 9mm Micro (which was made 'perfectly', as usual, I ordered two IWB mag carriers for the weapon. The 9mm mag carriers arrived with the holster, and needless to say, the two pouches were hand-made by DARA "Perfectly" - The two mags fit in each pouch like a glove. After numerous orders from DARA, I have come to expect such attention to detail and Perfection. These pouches were not easy to make - they are small, stiff, and 'carbon fiber' texture. Yet both are just Beautiful. Thank You DARA ! Ed
The Folks at Dara Holsters continue to supply me with a "Perfect Fit" holster, time after time. This time, they made a holster for my new 'Christmas Present', a Sig Micro Compact, P938 - and the fit is just amazing ! Thank You Dara! Ed
Great holster. Fit my Walther PPS m2 perfectly. Very Comfortable to wear and couldn't tell I was wearing. I will be ordering another one shortly for my Sig P320.
The workmanship of the holster is very good. What I like is that is does not mar the finish of the firearm. This is my 3rd Dara holster and I'm a satisfied customer.
Purchased an IWB holster for a PPS. Took it out of the box and it was readilly apparent that this holster was no different than the holsters i had previously purchased from this vendor. It was every bit as good as the ones for a Glock and an FN. Stays in place, retention is good without causing you to fight for posession of your pistol, and drawing/reholstering are smooth and consistent. These holsters are adjustable for retention so you can dial in the grip it has on your pistol to suit you. Highly xrecommended by someone who has been carrying for over 20 years.
I decided to try a Dara holster after googling kydex holsters for a walther pm2 and finding out a holster manufacturer in Wendall, NC makes one of the highest rated kydex holsters. Living in central NC I was more than happy to give them a shot and support a local business. I was a little confused at first by all the different customization options, but Alia is the most helpful/quick responding worker in customer service that I've experienced. I decided to go with a reverse 7.5 degree cant normal ride height with a carbon fiber finish. The quality, usability, aesthetics, and durability of the holster are all top notch. The gun disappears when I'm conceal carrying with it at the 5:30 position and I've got the retention dialed in perfect with the adjustable screw. All of my gun buddies are jealous of the carbon fiber finish. I definitely recommend this product and I'll be buying one for any future pistol purchases.
I’m typically a leather holster fan. The last kydex holster I tried marred the finish severely on my pistol. The Dara product doesn’t do that and is comfortable to wear even while sitting or moving about on the job. It doesn’t shift on my belt either. Reholstering is very easy also. I have zero complaints and am sure the quality of this holster will last for years of daily use.
Service is superb! Alia sent me multiple pics she took in order to show me what color combos would look like. The fit and finish is top notch, and looks like it will last a lifetime. I like the fact that Dara states the type of Kydex and its thickness, which is thicker than most. I also like the description of the hardware used and its anti corrosion properties. This is why I took a chance on this holster, and I was not disappointed. Delivered on time and in perfect condition. I also like the retention adjustment screw as well, nice feature to set at your comfort. I have looked at other holsters, but I always seem to come back to Dara. Keep up the great work, and thank you for such a great product.
After building my holster online, I called the company to get clarification on ride height and angle. You can't change these things once the holster is made, but having a person on the phone to help pick out what I really needed, made the choices easy. The wedge helps the pistol tuck into your body more to prevent printing, so I got that too. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and I've worn the holster everyday since it came in. I can say for sure that it's the best and most comfortable Shield IWB I've ever owned.
Can't say enough good things about my new holster. Fit and finish is great, most importantly though, the customer service was excellent. Thanks Team Dara.
