Kydex/Boltaron is an extremely durable acrylic/PVC alloy
Kydex or Boltaron is extruded in a wide range of colors, patterns, textures, thickness and grades to optimize long-term performance, appearance, and cost effectiveness. No other thermoplastic stands up to impact, scratches, and gouging like Kydex/Boltaron. It offers Impact resistance to 18 ft. lbs./in. (953 J/m) and is able to withstand various levels of abuse. Due to its high degree of toughness and resilience, Kydex/Boltaron can also be stretched at room temperature to twice its original dimension without breaking.
Kydex/Boltaron holsters are more concealable
The material strength of Kydex/Boltaron allows for greater strength with a fraction of the thickness associated with leather concealment holsters. A thinner holster significantly decreases printing.
Kydex/Boltaron Holsters have no break-in period
Your holster will fit the same every time.  Whether it is your first draw or your 1000th draw.  This means that there are few; if any, adjustments needed to start carrying your holster and firearm.
Kydex/Boltaron holsters are weather-proof
Kydex/Boltaron holsters can be worn in the rain and do not swell or contract due to sweat, humidity, or extreme weather.  In fact, Kydex/Boltaron will help keep the moisture produced by sweating from coming into contact with your firearm because Kydex/Boltaron will not absorb moisture, unlike most conventional holsters.
Kydex/Boltaron holsters are easier to clean and keep clean
If your holster becomes dirty it can be washed with soap and water. Detergents may be applied to it.  Gun cleaning chemicals or lubricants will not affect the Kydex/Boltaron material.
Kydex/Boltaron holsters will not collapse when you draw your gun

 

 

When you draw your gun with a Kydex/Boltaron holster, the mouth will stay open and the shape will not change. This allows you to use one hand while re-holstering your firearm.

Kydex/Boltaron holsters are less expensive
There are some very specialized and well crafted Kydex/Boltaron holsters that seem pricey, but as a generalization Kydex/Boltaron holsters are less expensive to purchase.
Kydex/Boltaron holsters are fast on the draw

When comparing them with conventional holsters.
In most IPSC / IDPA competitions, the fastest competitors are usually wearing Kydex/Boltaron.

Will Kydex/Boltaron holsters eventually wear on my firearms finish

The simple answer is yes, but on a positive note because the retention point is around the trigger guard you should not see the same type of wear that you would get from a conventional leather or nylon holster.

As many concealed carry enthusiasts, I have a box of holsters I have tried over the years that have epically failed, especially appendix style holsters. I prefer to carry appedix for many reasons but above all it is the most comfortable and least restrictive for my edc needs. I recently found DME holster on the web and reached out to Tim. From there his holster expertise couple with my needs/wants led to the creation of an amazing holster. I carry my Ruger 357 LCR in this holster and could not be happier. Tim is a great guy to work qith and his holster fit and finish is spectacular. I am completely satisfied and will be reaching out soon for more holsters for other handguns that I rotate into my EDC. Take the plunge, you will not regret your purchase.

Best Holster!!!
I own several DME holsters. They are the only holsters I wear because of their comfort, weapon retention, and weapon attainability. The best holster for the money by far! They are a great company to deal with also.

Bought 1911 3″ standard IWB for Para PDA. Fits perfect out of the package but it’s good to know I could adjust the retention if needed. Holster is very fast to put on and take off. Clip design holds holster completely secure and comfortable even when wearing shorts with a regular nylon belt. Furthermore the holster positions the pistol grip against your back . (4 – 5 o’clock carry). No printing. Since it’s kydex there is no collapse so reholstering is easy. Add to that a great price and free shipping, this holster is hard to beat. I’m ordering one for my Glock.

Ruger lcr 357 featherlight iwb. Holster is very light very compact and easily to concealed. Awesome workmanship it fit my weapon like a glove. For them to build a holster with a lasermax attachment they did outstanding job. Communication with the seller was the best I have ever experienced. I look forward to doing business with this company in the near future.

Amazing Craftsmanship and Business

Springfield XD SubCompact M2
From shipping to overall quality this is by far the best holster I own, my original shipping ETA was 10-14 days and received it in nearly half that. Upon opening the shipping package it was well wrapped and protected on top of the already straight forward packaging. In the packaging I received warranty and care information, a hardware kit, and the holster itself. Upon initial inspection the design is extremely streamlined which I find ideal for everyday carry versus a more bulky product. The edging is perfect, there is no snagging and the smooth matte finish feels great when wearing this product for extended periods of time. The initial fit was dead on and the heavy duty belt clip is placed in the most ideal position. I look forward to conducting future business with DME.

I carry a Kimber Ultra CDP II in a shoulder rig in the cooler months and needed a concealed carry holster for the summer. In researching a potential purchase on the web, I came across DME Holsters on eBay. I was interested in an IWB holster for the small of the back carry but didn’t see the exact model I needed and contacted the company for availability. I was promptly answered by Tim who translated my needs into a particular model and I placed the order for a small of the back holster with a right hand draw with a negative cant. Four days later, my holster arrived and I couldn’t be more pleased. It has great quality, excellent fit on the pistol and perfect positioning on the draw. Thank you Tim. This company’s service and products are outstanding. I plan on buying other DME products!

.40 xd sub compact IWB

The last holster you’ll ever buy I bought an iwb holster for my xd .45 service model when their store was still on eBay. I was new to kydex and still unsure about it. This is by far the best holster I own. It’s durable, comfortable and does not require two hands to reholster. The sweat guard keeps your gun off your body and dry. The cant also enforces good hand position when drawing your firearm. I hope they will make one for a G.I 1911. Also great price and custom feel without the custom cost.

I purchased a DME IWB holster several months ago and have been totally in love with it.  I have purchased 7 other IWB holsters and they were either too bulky, uncomfortable, didn't retain the pistol properly, or didn't release it when drawing.  I have been using the DME holster now exclusively and it fits the my Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II perfectly.  It is so comfortable, I forget I am wearing it and it performs flawlessly.  Thank you for a great product.  I am a NRA certified pistol instructor and I only recommend your holster for my students.

Kimber Ultra Carry II
I own many holsters from leather IWBs to pancackes to hybrids. This holster is by far my favorite. Fit and finish are sot on.. retention was perfect right out of the box. Kydex used is top of the line. Belt clip and 15 degree cant are perfect. What can I say, this has been the only concealed carry holster I use(daily) since I received it. Buy this holster now, you won’t regret it. In fact you`ll want one for all of your weapons.

Daniel H – 07/10/2015:

Extremely pleased with my new DME holster. I have not carried as much as I would like, because I have not found a comfortable holster…..
Until now! This is a super high quality /well made product and most importantly…. comfortable!
It fit my .38 S&W Airwweight snubnose perfectly.
Great customer service & quick delivery..hassle free.
Plus, made in USA..what more could you ask?
I will be purchasing additional DME holsters for my other handguns as well.
