Current Stock:

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.

Have a light or laser attachment? Check out our Light bearing OWB 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.

    Seriously impressed.

    Posted by Bruce Smithhammer on 19th Oct 2020

    I own a ridiculous number of holsters from a variety of manufacturers, but I'm seriously impressed with this, my first DARA. Not only did it ship 3 days after ordering, it is a really well built holster. In my previous experience, you can usually have it "fast" or you can have "good quality," but not both. You don't have to choose with Dara. They are now my "go to."

    OWB holster

    Posted by BRIAN from CT on 2nd Oct 2020

    These holsters are something else (in a good way). I was blown away by the quality and attention to detail that this company puts into their products. I own a thousand holsters, this one is one of the best. I am gonna order one for another gun of mine. It's really nice when you get what you pay for.

    The Best

    Posted by Kurt Fetherolf on 12th Sep 2020

    This is our 2nd Dara holster, this time for my wife's Walther PPS .40 S&W. Like the holster for my PPQ .45, it's a perfect fit...and I mean perfect. I am loathe to easily give 5 star reviews but this is one of the few products I've purchased that I consider to be flawless. Once you buy a Dara holster you will never purchase anything else.

    This is one of several products I’ve purchased from Dara and I’m extremely pleased with all of them especially this holster. Well made, durable and very effective in carrying and drawing my weapon. I would recommend these products and look forward to doing more business with Dara in the future.

    First Personal Kydex

    Posted by Ben on 2nd Sep 2020

    This is the first kydex holster I have personally owned and I could not be happier! Fo my CZ P10F, it is incredibly light and low-profile that you won't know that it is on your hip. You don't have to change how you walk or carry yourself at all. The adjustable retention screws work wonderfully well and the ability to change how the holster sits on your hip is great too. The look is extremely finished (no burs, cracks, misprints, etc.) and what should be he standard of the market. I know that my CZ will be protected and that the holster won't fail me during use.

    Fantastic holster

    Posted by Steve on 2nd Sep 2020

    I got this holster for my S&W M&P 2.0. It's hard to holster this gun because I got the 5 inch barrel. The holster from Dara is flat out fantastic. Best holster I've ever owned.

    GP100 Holster

    Posted by Jim on 22nd Aug 2020

    All around great holster. The only thing I would recommend is, maybe don't make it so snug. I have the retention screws almost all the way out, and it's still extremely snug. I have no doubt that this will improve with time.

    Posted by Bill Mossburg on 18th Aug 2020

    Very happy with my purchase. Looks great, love the belt clips. Very sturdy and well made. Retention was too loose but easily adjustable
