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.

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 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.

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 Size:
Paddle fits most belts 1.5" - 1.75"

Ride Height:

Cant Angles:
Forward and Back 30°.

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.

    Great fit and look

    Posted by Eric on 20th Apr 2022

    Dara was the only holster I could find for a light bearing XDM and I hadn’t owned a Dara Holster previously so I was a little nervous. The holster fits perfectly and attaches snuggly to my body and my weapon. I am very satisfied and I will absolutely trust Dara for future holsters. Also, I had a question about compatibility so I called customer service and I was immediately able to speak with an employee who was able to answer my questions. Great holster and great customer service.

    Light bearing paddle holster

    Posted by Don on 18th Feb 2022

    Nice fit, close to body. Quality made. Reasonably fast turnaround time for a custom fit. Would like to see a stainless retention adjustment screw in a knurled pattern. Something you could adjust without a screwdriver.

    This holster is the one

    Posted by Chris robbins on 23rd Nov 2021

    This holster is the one I have been waiting for and looking for. I fits well with my 45 xdm handgun and I love that I got to choose the color of the holster too. I will continue to use this site from time to time. I recommend it to others too.

    OWB Lightbearing Paddle

    Posted by Vincent on 18th Nov 2021

    Fits my 509t perfectly with a Holosun 507c and a Streamlight TLR7a. Retention is excellent, reholstering as well. Secure waistline grip with the paddle and rides high enough for 3-season carry in Michigan's colder temps. Thank you for the lightning fast service Dara!

    Light Bearing OWB Paddle Holster

    Posted by Dodger512 on 18th Nov 2021

    I bought Dara for the first time after purchasing an XDM Elite OSP 4.5 with the threaded barrel and suppressor sights. The holster fit is perfection. It's beautifully made, looks great and functions better than any kydex type holster I've ever owned. Worth every dollar.

    Ok I love this holster- I’ve had other holster companies try to tell me that a VP40 fits in a VP9 holster but DARA actually designed this one for the VP40 The holster covers most of the gun but still makes it easy to draw and the paddle is easy to shove in my waist band but still retains the holster when I draw. I will be ordering more for my other pistols

    Extremely high quality

    Posted by Gregg on 10th Oct 2021

    This came faster than promised and it is a very quality product and looks great. The fit is perfect for the weapon and the paddle is well designed, appropriately sized, and secures very well. I have already, and will continue to recommend this holster company.

    Awesome quality. Great retention. Audible click when holstering. Not a long wait after ordering.
