Dara's Level II Duty Holster is not just any OWB Holster with a hood slapped on it. It was designed from the ground up for the rigors of duty and guaranteed for life. Starting with a robust body formed using .125" purpose blended Polymers, then fastened with blackened stainless steel hardware. This rig utilizes our tried and true adjustable Rubber Retention System that allows you to tune the resistance to your preferred draw stroke.

Our auto throw hood is locked in place until the intuitively located thumb lever is depressed. The hood then rotates with enough force to move loose garment, making your firearm ready when you need it. Don't settle for less- if you demand quality and endless reliability, you've found it.


-Our Custom Duty OWB Holsters are hand crafted in the USA from .125" Boltaron and molded precisely to each firearm for a perfect fit. 

-Our Duty Holsters are equipped to accommodate slide mounted optics and co-witness suppressor height sights up to .5".

-Each holster is fit tested prior to shipment using the exact firearm.

-Each holster is draw weight tested for consistency, prior to passing a final QC check.

-Adjustable Level 1 Retention System. Our rubber retention system was designed by us for use specifically with our holsters. Able to hold the most minute adjustments, this advanced system eliminates the need for loctite or any other thread locking substance.

-The Level 2 Duty Holsters comes with 2 belt mount attachment options: you can choose our Drop Offset System and Double Loop or our ALQD Quick Disconnect System and Double Loop.

-The Double Loop attachment fits 1.5"-2.25" belts. The belt width is adjustable and eliminates the need to purchase multiple attachments for different belts. The double loop also allows for ride height and cant angle adjustment. 

-Optional leg strap for added stability.

Please note: Our hole pattern is proprietary and meant only for use with our own attachments.


Be sure to checkout out our OWB Magazine Carriers, as well as our IWB Holsters for your backup gun.

Please choose your exact make and model. Failure to mention any details that influence the external dimensions of your firearm will result in a fitment issue.

All Duty Holsters are non-refundable.

    Duty holster level II Springfield Prodigy

    Posted by Travis Bedell on 13th May 2023

    The holster is well made and the belt options are beneficial to law enforcement officers. I have always had a problem with defeating the 1911 grip safety because of my large hands. The hood release button exasperates this because of it's position and a low grip. I had to add a strip of kydex, so my thumb would trigger the hood release from a forward (high grip) position. Please design a hood release on this holster model for better ergonomics using the 1911 platform, specifically positioning the hood release where the shooters thumb will end the draw stroke at the thumb safety of the handgun.

    Level 2 holster

    Posted by Andy gray on 10th May 2023

    Fit and finish is top notch hood works awesome. Qd is very good. Things that would be better for me ... First make the reciever belt mounted so that I can remove the entire holster. second ride height is fine for law enforcement but I'm not. I chose Dara level 2 for secure retention in heavy mountain laurl
    But I always wear a load bearing backpack so I need a true thigh holster .putting the reciever on a belt mount would allow a drop platform that could completely detach I am currently trying to modify such a platform and I have a few ideas and prototypes if you can offer any advice or want to talk to me about my ideas contact me .thanks for an awesome product all my hunting buddy's think it is badass.

    L2 duty holster for Springfield XD Tactical 5"

    Posted by Andrew GB on 9th May 2023

    Firstly, bare in mind that it's realy dificult to find a quality L2 holster for this specific gun if it's gonna be your workhorse. Everything else on the packet is sub standard requiring the fitting of badly molded attachments to rails that shouldnt have made it past QC. The only way you will be please is if you go made-to-measure.... and this fits like a glove !. I wasted 80 bucks on another option before comming here.... and this one is not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    This holster feels robust, durable, well and thoughfully designed, and proffesional. The right kit also makes me look and feel more proffesional too. It hangs comfortable on the belt, and draws easily when not protected by the hood which feels positive and tough.

    XD / 5" tactical owners won't be disappointed and its reasonable to assume that the same standards also apply to other manufacturers and models. I spent a long time trying to find a good quality L2 duty holster and still made a mistake that cost me!

    If you follow this advice you will save time and money in the end, and be content in the knowledge that you made the right choice and you have a quality product.

    Custom level duty holster

    Posted by Roy H. on 14th Mar 2023

    The fit and finish of the holster is second to none. I love the hood release feature to prevent access to my firearm and the quick draw from my owb side is quick and doesn't snag. Out of the box it fit my staccato c2 perfectly.
