If you're considering a Kydex gun holster, whether that's an IWB Kydex holster for your Glock, an OWB holster for your Sig Sauer, or any variation on a custom Kydex gun holster, Black Arch Holsters should be your choice. No matter what your needs for a Kydex holster, we have something that will meet your needs.
For example, our Protos-M Kydex holster isn't JUST a Kydex holster. It's also a major leap forward in hybrid holster OWB design. It offers unmatched comfort thanks to the flexibility of the leather (which moves with you), while our patent-pending "3/4 Hybrid" system offers consistent, adjustable retention not seen on more conventional hybrid OWB holsters. This holster has no bulk, making the Protos-M one of the finest, most innovative hybrid OWB Kydex holsters on the market.
Our all new Rev-Con™ Kydex holster, meanwhile, is a reversible and convertible holster that's perfect for any situation. It is reversible for right- or left hand shooters and convertible for OWB or IWB, appendix or strong side carry, with an adjustable cant up to 15 degrees. Like our Protos-M holster, it offers adjustable retention, and a flared opening for easier reholstering. The Rev-Con isn't a hybrid holster; it's a next-generation all Kydex holster that is perfect for appendix carry in its zero degree cant configuration. It also offers an optional holster wing for additional concealment.
Then there's the Entrada™, our flexible Kydex holster intended for appendix carry that is designed to comfortably form to your body. It's a Kydex holster and mag-carrier connected by our adjustable ModWing™ to reduce printing. The magazine retention is adjustable, too. You get the durability, security, and ease of reholstering in the appendix holster / appendix carry position, but without the inflexibility that a lot of all-Kydex holsters bring. Kydex is a great material for holsters, but because it doesn't give like leather, Kydex can be unforgiving.
Our flexible mag/holster connection makes this an appendix carry holster for your Glock, Sig, Springfield, or other pistol (we have more compatible holsters for different makes on the way) that forms to your body and is incredibly comfortable.
A few things to consider about Kydex holsters include some basic facts about Kydex as a material. Kydex is a thermoplastic that can be molded at relatively low temperatures. This means it is durable and will serve you for a lifetime... as long as you don't, say, leave your Kydex IWB holster on the dash of a locked car on a 100-degree day. Extreme heat can cause the material to loosen, so take the same basic care with your holster as you would with anything else you carry.
Your Kydex IWB or OWB holster is also intended for weapons meant to becarried. This means it is not the right material for, say, "safe queen" pistols that must never take a scratch or scuff. If grit and other debris work their way into a Kydex holster, this might result in minor finish wear, because Kydex doesn't have the same "give" that leather or Nylon does. For a working gun, a daily carry gun, Kydex gun holsters are the perfect choice. They give you a custom fit with perfect retention that allows for safe, one-hand reholstering.
With basic care they will last for a lifetime, never mildewing or corroding (Kydex, as a plastic, doesn't do that). Thanks to the custom fit, your Kydex IWB or OWB holster will also be as "minimal" as you need it to be, with no extra material to bulk it up and make it harder to carry. This is the perfect concealed carry solution in an affordable package.
A Kydex IWB holster from Black Arch is the perfect daily carry companion. You have a lot of options when it comes to daily carry holsters, including Kydex holsters, and most shooters develop that "box of holsters" over time. You know, a box, or a drawer, or maybe even a bag of holsters that you thought would be great IWB holsters or daily carry rigs... but which never really measured up? It doesn't matter whether you carry a Glock, a Sig Sauer, or some other kind of gun. When you carry IWB, the best option is an IWB Kydex holster. Kydex holsters offer a host of advantages over leather or Nylon. Kydex holsters are also extremely durable and affordable.
