Curved panel holsters use two or more pieces of leather to form a front/back sheath for the firearm.  The outside section is wider than the inside section, resulting in a curve in the finished holster.  Sometimes called 8020 holsters, as about eighty percent of the contour is to the outside and twenty percent to the inside.  Standard cant (angle) is 15 degrees forward tilt.  Customization – including leather tooling – is available.

Though similar in construction, a curved panel holster is superior to other holsters.  These do not rely on tension from the user’s belt to produce the needed weapon retention. Tightening the belt results in virtually no increased pressure on the firearm (this binding is sometimes erroneously called “retention”).

The result is a holster that does not bind the firearm.  That allows the placement of stitching close to the weapon, which translates to a more stable (and thus safer) carry.  And since the holster relies on fit instead of lateral force to retain the gun, the curved panel holster will fit better for a longer time.

These are available with or without an added reinforcement panel of cowhide or select exotic leathers.  Lining the inside (body side) panel keeps the sweat guard (sweat shield) firmer longer.

Holsters are stitched with heavy nylon and polyester thread for years of use.  View the thread colors stocked (close the tab to return here).

Holsters may optionally be lined, and belts and mag pouches are available to match.

    This Holster fits my Sig P320 X-Carry perfectly. I had a problem finding the Proper holster fit and after talking to Jeff I found it was exactly what I needed. the quality is equal to holsters costing much more. Great buy!
