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.

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.

    Great holster, bad paddle

    Posted by Dustin Jeffreys on 14th Jan 2020

    The holster is very well made, fit is perfect for my XDs with crimson trace. My only complaint is the paddle. It is WAY too small. Which makes it not near as comfortable to carry as my Safariland paddle holster (but they do not have an option to accommodate the crimson trace). Also the edges are not finished very well and scratch where they contact my body. I plan on remedying that issue with find grit sandpaper. Dara needs a serious redesign on paddle, but other than that the holster is fantastic.

    Love the construction but I wish the paddle was larger.

    Dara does it again!

    Posted by James on 12th Apr 2019

    Just received my paddle holster for my Glock G45 that i ordered after receiving my level 2 duty holster and all i can say is Dara did it again! The G45 has the G17 lower but, with a slight cant to the holster, it positions and balances the firearms very well! It actually makes concealment very easy and extremely comfortable. Also the time from purchase to delivery was a lot faster than what Dara states on the site. Couldn't be happier and can't wait to complete the collection with the appendix carry rig
