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:
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.


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.

    OWB HK USP Optic cut

    Posted by Elias Patten on 11th May 2020

    My review of the Dara OWB I ordered for my HK USP9 Build quality on this is absolutely fantastic. Great retention, after a few hours of dry fire and a day of range time I have no complaints. I would like to go to a mid ride I’m thinking for sure, even after getting used to how high the stock ride belt mount sits. I do like the offset from my belt quite a bit more than my Safariland GLS, it’s a lot closer to the ALS on a mid ride. I run a High Threat Concealment 1.75” low vis belt and their 1.75 fit is almost perfect, doesn’t slide around or move when I wear it or run any drills. Kydex is quite thick, a lot heavier duty than the cheap holsters you see saturating the market from amazon and the like that are cookie cutter kydex builds that are incredibly thin and flex too much to be safe. Hardware is solid, I would prefer if they made adapters for the more common rigs on the market but their stuff is solid enough I don’t see an issue with using it. I will be ordering their duty holster for sure to run, and set it on their mid ride. I’ll keep this one for comp use once I get the dot put on my pistol. Full lifetime warranty as well, they call it their “no BS warranty.” Given the construction, I don’t feel I’ll need it but it’s good peace of mind to have. Lead time is a little long (30 days from order to received), I had figured that with no contact from purchase to shipping it would be shorter but it’s well worth the wait. That being said, I did receive the holster 2 days before the date shipping said it would be here so I have to give them that for sure.

    Kydex OWB Holster

    It took a while to find a holster for my CZ 75 SP01. Very nice fit and finish. Retention is great the way it came and is adjustable. Would definitely buy again!

    Good quality, great support staff.

    Posted by Corbin Todd on 22nd Apr 2020

    I had to wait quite awhile to receive my product. Understandable though with the Covid scenario. Anytime I checked on my order the staff was excellent. I got real time responses within hours of emails. The product works great. It’s difficult to find holsters for FN and this holster fits nice and snug. Also love the matte black option I chose. Definitely satisfied and would order again in the future!

    Holster does the Job

    Posted by Jose in CT on 28th Mar 2020

    Ordering the holster was easy, shipping was fast and the packaging was nice looking. Holster had a nice quality finish and retention is great. It's the best looking option that I found online for the CZ 75 SP01. Ordering the attachment for a drop leg.
