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.
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 the second one I’ve purchased over the last 2 years or so. I just changed color. Best IWB I’ve ever owned.
Amazing holster and an outstanding company they go the extra mile
I own 02 Dara holsters and dig them both. I bought this one for my dad. He digs it as well. He states it comfortable and that it fits his Glock 26 great.
This was one of the FEW Holsters for the Browning 1911 380. Pleased with the fit.
I’ve purchased IWB holster from Dara before this one was no different. Quality and fit were perfect. I had not purchased a IWB for a 1911 so I was looking forward to seeing how thy molded considering the thumb safety and curves of the 1911. It is great. Very pleased as always. Thanks for making a quality product!!
Awesome product! Very well made and exceeded my expectations! Already looking to buy another holster. You will not be disappointed!
I’ve used Dara multiple times and will continue to do so. I like the level of customization in ordering and they seem committed to quality as each order form shows it was signed off on by multiple people prior to shipment. Typically I’ve found the retention screws need tightening out of the box, but this one was perfect. The leather texturing is nice and will make it easier for me to identify which holster goes with each firearm. Keep up the good work, Dara.
I'm very satisfied with Dara and this holster as it's my third from them. It seems they improved the standard belt clip since my last order a couple years ago. The newer one feels sleeker and has two tiny "tabs" on the underside that make removing from the belt even easier. One note regarding retention: mine was set pretty loose out of the box as it was with a previous order. I found I had to tighten it to the point where the end of the screw is just about flush with the hole on the backside. This makes it tight enough to not slip out easily when placed upside-down and also provides that secure 'click-in' when holstering. I'll definitely order from Dara again.
I bought this for my Glock 22. It fits perfectly and the materials are first rate. I would highly recommend this holster.
