A great holster starts with great leather. It is the foundation of our holster that everything else is built upon. It starts with the perfect shape for a natural draw and all-day comfort. Our American made leather is drum dyed and hot stuffed and needs no finishing. After drum dying it is impregnated with the perfect formula of waxes and oils to create a durable yet flexible leather. Then the grain and flesh is finished with a rich, beautiful aniline dye to show off the natural texture. Last, the color is sealed in and then it is finished with a wax coat to give it a look like none other! You won’t find a leather this nice on ANY other hybrid holster.
The clips make sure your holster doesn’t come loose when you draw your weapon and our holsters include sturdy steel belt clips instead of plastic clips so you’ll know your holster will perform properly when you need it to. They are heat treated and are coated with black oxide so they won’t rust or lose their shape, no matter how many years of service they give you.
The Kydex is the plastic frame that holds your pistol to the leather. We have found the perfect balance of form and function with our shells. It is thicker than most other holster makers use for added strength, but not so thick that we can’t get a good reliable mold of the pistol. Our Kydex shells are 50% thicker than most other hybrid holsters, because our design allows for retention adjustment. Other holster makers use rivets to attach the Kydex to the leather. Because those rivets are fixed and non-adjustable, the kydex must be thin enough to “flex” around the gun as it is withdrawn. Flexing can cause cracks over time and requires a much thinner plastic. Our holsters incorporate adjustable screws where others use rivets. Because of the adjustable retention screws, we can use a much thicker plastic that doesn’t have to flex. Another benefit of this design is that you can set the tension to your own requirements. You may need a really tight grip for a mountain-biking excursion or you may want a somewhat loose grip for a fast and effortless draw. The choice is yours!
We took a long time tracking down the absolute best hardware we could find to attach everything together. No cheap rivets here. You will have high quality black oxide coated screws, finishing washers, and t-nuts.
This holster is sure to become your “Old Faithful” companion that is always there when you need it.
