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.

    OWB Holster for FN 545

    A fantastic holster! Dara was one of the few to offer something for the new FN 545/510 family and I couldn't be happier with the result. Very well made holster that is finished impeccably. Belt attachment is the sturdiest I've seen and attached in the proper place so there is no holster rise or wobble when drawing your gun. Everything came to me well packaged and it shows they have a high level of pride for what they do. Money very well spent. This will not be my last Dara holster.

    Great Holster for Springfield Armory 9mm XDM OSP 4.5

    I was very impressed with the fit especially with my gun fitted with a Red dot. The holster was made for me! I recommend anyone needing a holster to get one from Dara Holsters

    I just received my holster after short wait. It is outstanding! Very good retention. I can turn it upside down and shake it and it retains the G40 with a full magazine with no issue. I look forward to buying more Dara holsters for my other firearms. The material is sturdy and looks great, too. 10/10
