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.

    I have two of these holsters for a Glock 19 and 3-in Hellcat and recently picked up a Hellcat Pro. My first attempt to buy this holster for my HC Pro resulted in the message still shown today. So this morning I called to see when stock would be restored and was told this holster has been discontinued. Like so many others, I believe this to have been the best AIWB holster available in fit, function and value. Obviously, I am not privy to the decision making process at Dara but it feels like a mistake. So, now I will have to find a new holster supplier and not looking forward to the search. Thanks, Dara it was a good run while it lasted.

    I can’t say this enough. The best. DARA makes one of THE BEST holsters on the market. Aside from the product, their customer service is above and beyond any other company. I come to DARA for every holster, every time. Period.

    AIWB Minimalist Holster/CZ P10F

    This was for my CZ P10F. Excellent fit and quality. Optic/Compensator and suppressor height sight ready. I wasn’t surprised by how nice the holster was and how fast it got to me as this is my second holster from Dara. The first one I bought was for a SIG P365 and it is excellent as well. I’ll be ordering a light bearing holster soon. Dara is a great company with prompt customer service as well.

    MTO Minimalist M&P 5”

    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.
