    Great Holster and Customer Service.

    So far I have nothing wrong to say about the product and the company. I had to contact them to change the hood of my holster due to a change in optics and without hesitation it was done. I have purchased a few holster from them and so far I really like the product, the kydex retention its great.

    Level 2 Holster

    So happy I got this holster for my FN 545, paid express “head of line” and the Multicam is sweet. Very few holsters out for this sweet 45. Thanks for the awesome product.

    I recently bought a duty holster from a different company that I won’t name that was supposed to fit my pistol, I spent well over $100 on it and when it came in I had to heat gun the holster to fit and it still didn’t fit properly, I decided to give DARA a try afterwords and I’m mind blown. My Walther PDP 5” with tlr1 and holosun SCS fit PERFECTLY, the hood release sits lower than on most holsters which allows me to get a full grip on the gun before dropping the hood which Is something I didn’t know I needed until I got it. The build quality is on par or superior to safariland and the holster is designed to sit out from your hip just enough that you don’t run your thumb into anything when drawing. All and all 10 out of 10 and DARA is my new go-to for duty holsters. I plan on kitting out my 4.25” 1911 with a DARA soon as well.

    This is replacing a Blackhawk Omnivore that fell apart. This holster is by far superior to what I have seen or used in the past. The company is awesome to work with and produces perfection in this holster.

    Received my holster in perfect condition. Tension was set perfectly right out of the box. Definitely glad that I went with the elastic leg strap upgrade. Well worth the $19.99 I paid for it.

    Totally satisfied. Love the hood way more than my previous holster. I've trained with it several times so far and love the adjustability and the fit.

    Dara Light bearing level II holster with aqld

    Bought this holster for work. As a duty holster it is definitely 5 stars. I can tell looking at the material it is durable, fit is perfect, and it's one of the few companies to make a level II for my HK Vp9L. The draw speed is quick and it is easy to reholster. The Aqld is super nice as it allows me to remove my gun while at a desk while utilizing belt loops. Definitely would buy again.
