The Inside the Waistband Holster (IWB 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" Boltaron using rust resistant stainless steel hardware, our materials are far superior than our competition and will last a lifetime. Each holster comes with an adjustable retention system, specifically engineered for use with our tooling to hold the most minute adjustments. 

All IWB Holsters come optics ready with a taller sight channel that accommodates most taller co-witness sights- up to .5" tall. The edges of our holsters are rounded and polished- the best finish in the business- for comfortable all day concealed carry. The sweat shield extends to the rear of the slide, shaped to maximize comfort and minimize risk of pinching when re-holstering.

Concealed Carry has never been more successful, see why everyone is switching over to Dara Holster's IWB Holster.

  • Snag-Free Design: Rounded and polished edges create a snag-free silhouette, preserving your clothing and ensuring a smooth draw every time.

  • Comfortable Sweatshield: Our rounded sweatshield offers protection, comfort, and easy re-holstering while worn inside the waistband, enhancing your overall carrying experience.

    Holster for XDS 9

    I have to say QC/QA is a top priority for me and seeing the multiple levels of checks before it ships out was satisfying. The clip is stiff and very secure on my 1.5" belt. Detent is just as expected and overall fit IWB compared to my old leather holster made me love carrying my XDS again. I recommend this IWB holster and will buy one for future EDC.

    Great Holster

    Great feeling holster that give us the options for ride height and a nice selection of angles. It hides my Echelon better than other high priced holsters for my Hellcat, even though its way bigger. The only issue I have with it is that the edges of the kydex around where your hand goes are rather sharp, and I have cut the section where the thumb bends multiple times when training, hence the 4 starts instead of 5.

    IWB for Hellcat Pro

    Quality fabricated product. Unfortunately my new OSP-ready Hellcat Pro does not have, and I will probably never want it to have, an optic mounted on it. The holster is manufactured, as stated, to allow for a mounted optic, resulting in a holster with a large gap on the entire top section along with some undesirable edges when an optic is not present. Not the most comfortable concealed carry situation.

    Iwb holster

    DARA thank you for your job. I received my holster in a one week ( to Estonia). Nobody in Europe can offer good holster for my gun. Your service is best! Thank you again!!!

    Dara IWB CSX Green

    This holster is a quality item. The belt clip is exactly 1.5” and keeps the holster indexed perfectly in place so the grip on the pistol doesn’t sag into my waistband. It makes drawing much more consistent and fast. Also, the kydex is thick and strong, and provides good retention with the adjustable retention screw. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because the edges are quite sharp, and I had to scrape them with a pocketknife to round them for comfortable carry inside the waistband. Excellent product otherwise, and I would not hesitate to buy again.

    Well Made/Crafted Holster!

    I decided to add two guns to my carry rotation: a CZ P-07 and a Walther PDP. As usual, the Dara Holsters I received were exceptionally well done, fit my guns like a glove and made carrying easy and secure. I could not be happier. I have a number of these holsters and highly recommend Dara. Well done.

    IWB holster

    DARA is my go to for all my holster needs on all my guns. Great quality and attention to detail. The proprietary clip is great for all belts and guaranteed to stay firmly. Prices are more than reasonable and not overpriced like other companies. Wait times are not crazy long either especially if it’s customized. Keep up the great work and look forward to more future purchases with your company
