    My new IWB light-bearing holster holds my S&W M&P 2.0 10mm w/TLR-1 tactical light as intended, while allowing clearance for my Holosun Red-Dot optics. I'm quite pleased with my new holster, and was surprised at how comfortable it is despite the added accessories. The aggressive texture of my hand-grip has not been an issue, which was of major concern, since the holster keeps the grip off my skin.

    Light Bearing Holster

    I bought a Dara Holster to replace a different holster from another manufacturer that had failed in the field under adverse conditions. Normally I would have sent it back to the manufacturer and had them replace it, but that manufacturer does not produce that style of holster any longer, and I needed one that was duty rated ASAP for my specific firearm/light combo. In making some phone calls it was suggested to me to look at Dara as a contender for a replacement, so I purchased this one. So far, so good.

    IWB holster and Level ll OWB holsters

    BLUF, My personal opinion is DARA has the overall best holsters I have used to date. I am a Army Special Forces BG (retired) with over 36 years of experience so I feel have some small amount of knowledge on weapons and related topics as a whole. Before ordering from DARA, I did extensive research on the topic of appendix holsters both red dot optic and weapon light capable. It seems appendix carry is a new hot topic and it interested me for numerous reasons. I have carried many brands of OWB and IWB holsters and I always had concerns about retention, access and printing. I made the decision to purchase both an OWB and IWB holster. Also, upon the recommendation from a DARA product technician, I purchased (2) CORE belts made exclusively for pistol carry. It turned out to be an exceptional product as well and enhances the effectivness of any IWB or OWB holster. Initially, I had concerns about the comfort level in both standing and more importantly sitting positions for appendix carry. However, after getting the holster and belt adjusted properly and actually wearing it, I am surprisingly amazed. As hard as it is to believe, it is not "uncomfortable". Now it is not comfortable in what I would call comfortable.To me, it feels "unnormal "to say the least and I had concern of having an AD which by the way would make my Wife very unhappy. As with any weapon usage, it is critical to train, train and train more. Be sure to give ample time for withdrawing and holstering the pistol from various positions. I found in sitting down, pulling outwards on the holster from your body, then after sitting , reposition the holster/belt to where it is most comfortable on your abdomen. As l said, it is more then tolorable, has limited print based on shirt type/size, (use common sense) and allows unrestrictive acces. Bottom line, for me, this product is a GO and I would feel comfortable to provide it for the Men and Women under my command. These products are not be for everyone, but if you are unhappy with your purchase DARA has a life time warranty. By the way, I am not compensated from DARA in any way for writing this review. I hope my words aid you in your personal decision in purchasing a holster. The holster is for more important then most people realize. It is the link between your body and the pistol. Take care all and be safe!

    There’s a reason why this is my fourth Dara holster, the quality of their holsters are second to none. The outstanding craftsmanship that goes into the creation of these holsters is amazing. The holster is sturdy, also comfortable and will keep your firearm secure. I will definitely be purchasing another in the near future!
