Our Outside the Waistband Holster is the BEST OWB Holster on the market.

Formed using rigid .093" thick Boltaron and molded precisely to your exact firearm. Fastened securely using rust resistant Stainless Steel hardware anchored by lock washers, using hardware designed and built specifically for our holsters.

Each OWB Holster is adaptable to an array of belt attachment options. You choose what option works best for you.
Our Double Loop comes standard on each OWB Holster. The Double Loop features two points of contact to the belt and three points of contact to the holster. The Double Loop allows the user to adjust the ride height and cant angle of the holster, so the carrier can adjust to the best draw position.
The Double Loop also offers a secure mechanical mounting for four belt sizes: 1.5", 1.75", 2" and 2.25".

Every OWB Holster features an adjustable rubber retention system. This system allows you to tune your draw resistance using a Philips head screwdriver. Each OWB Holster is test fit and draw weight tested prior to shipment to ensure a perfect fit and retention. When the firearm is fully seated within the holster, the user will hear an audible "click" to indicate that your pistol is secure. At this point you will be able to hold your holster upside down and shake without your firearm dislodging. Should you need a second level of retention, please see our Level 2 Duty Holster

We offer our OWB Holster in a light/laser bearing variant for over 300 configurations. Check out our Light bearing OWB Holster if you have a WML on your firearm.

All Dara Holsters, including the OWB Holster, come standard with an optic cut. All holsters come optics ready with a .5" tall sight channel enhanced for co-witness and suppressor height sights. The muzzle area of the OWB Holster comes cut flush with your muzzle without a taper to accommodate longer versions of the firearm, threaded barrels and/or a compensator.

All edges are rounded and polished for a comfortable, snag-free carry.

    Glock 40, Masada, Ruger Security 380

    I am very happy with my 3 Dara holsters, fine workmanship and utility. I particularly like how the mag release buttons are encased preventing unintentional magazine release.

    OWB Holster

    Recently purchased an Oracle Arms 2311. Your holster fit like a glove. And that click! indicating positive retention, was spot on!

    I received this holster yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased. The workmanship and fit are excellent and the prices are fair. This is a professional company. Customer service is great too. I had a minor issue with shipping, but Samantha cleared it up right away. This is definitely a company I will buy from again. There are many (too many??) kydex holster makers out there, but few as good as Dara. Save yourself time and aggravation and just buy from them.

    For Walter q5

    I really like the quality. I would prefer a lower height , because on the waist it’s very high to access .

    Almost perfect

    The holster fit the gun perfectly but not quite so much the hip. Sharp edges of the belt loop dug into leg while hiking. Of course my Glock 40 is a very heavy gun.
