The MTO Minimalist - AIWB Appendix Holster

Designed for Inside the Waistband Concealed Carry at the Appendix Position


The MTO Minimalist is a no-nonsense AIWB Holster with a minimal amount of material. The same high quality Kydex Gun Holsters you're used to- taken to the most basic level. Able to accommodate most aftermarket parts, including optics & extended controls, the MTO Minimalist appendix holster is the perfect modern Concealed Carry Holster.

The Holster comes with the following features:

-Slide cut to accommodate any optic

-Exposed Mag Release to accommodate any aftermarket extended models

-Fits all extended controls

-Slim, Low Profile Tuckable Clip in sizes: 1.5" & 1.75"

-Adjustable Cant Angle

-Mid Height Sweatshield

-Adjustable Retention

-Grip Concealment Claw

What sets apart the Dara Minimalist AIWB Holster from others on the market is our intuitive design. Our adjustable Retention System and claw/clip hardware are separate, allowing full adjustability of your retention. If retention setting is loosened, your clip and hardware will stay tight and secured in a separate setting.

Please note: This appendix holster comes standard with a grip concealment claw. This claw pushes against the belt to tilt the grip of the gun into your waistband when carrying in the appendix position. The claw can still be utilized in other carry positions, but may becomes cumbersome to get on or off the belt and/or become uncomfortable in any position other than in front of the hips. To carry in other positions, we recommend removing the grip concealment claw altogether, or removing the adjustable pieces.

Each concealment claw comes with a strut (mounted on the holster), a medium adjustment piece (usually installed on the claw) and a larger adjustment piece (included in shipment in small bag). These pieces can be swapped or removed entirely. You may use just the strut if you find the adjustable pieces too aggressive.

    From asking questions about fitting, to receiving my holster much faster than expected. Received my holster for my M&P w/ compensator and it is the absolute perfect fit. Far & above my expectations. I love this holster, and the customer service is top notch.

    Great Holster

    This is probably the best holster I’ve owned. Your edc feels secure in the holster and it is easy to unholster and reholster. I don’t think I’ll buy any other brand after trying out this one.

    Fantastic Holster

    Helps to easily hide a a full size semi-auto even under a T-shirt, PFS9/PF940v2. Very comfortable and secure.

    This is firm enough and maintains its shape making the draw very smooth and fast. The belt clip holds the holster perfectly in its place.

    The MTO Minimalist AIWB holster is the most comfortable holster I've worn. Well made holster with retention adjustment for my firearm, and the adjustable claw allowed me to position my firearm to ensure its was straight. Nice job on this design and well made holster. First time customer and I'll definitely be back again for future holster needs.

    Great tuckable holster

    Posted by Mike on 11th Apr 2022

    I bought this holster as a tuckable IWB for my Hellcat. I don’t carry AIWB so I removed the claw to make it easier to attach at my 4oclock.
    Worked great. Pretty comfortable and the tuck worked well

    Outstanding AIWB!

    Posted by Doug on 20th Feb 2022

    I have been wearing this holster for just at a week and love the way it feels and moves while I wear it. I have zero issues with the holster. Would highly recommend and buy again. Construction feel solid and retention is perfect for how I want to carry.

    Surprisingly my absolute favorite holster for CCW

    Posted by Chris M on 17th Nov 2021

    I originally got one of these things for a 320 X-Carry because I was looking at many different brands and wanted to see which worked best for me. After trying the Tulster, JM4, Blackpoint Tactical, and a couple other brands I was absolutely surprised at how well this holster performed.
    First off the quality when I received it was on point and better than what I had envisioned when I placed the order. I noticed a lot of other similar holsters (while not bad, just didn’t work with my body) have just the slightest amount of extra material around the muzzle that also passes it which for me created a slight hotspot that became more noticeable as the time passed. This holster was literally perfect, the holster opening end was flush with the slide and for some reason the angles work perfectly with my body and it doesn’t make me have to adjust as I go from car to standing to sitting again. It just works.
    Also the minimalist design is superb to others who claim to do the same. Its low profile but covers everything that needs covering.
    Overall I love this thing, ordered a mother one for my 365XL and honestly wont get another brand in the future.
