What is the Best Light Bearing Holster?

The best light bearing holster will depend on several factors, including the type of firearm and light combination you have, your personal preferences, and your intended use for the holster.

Ultimately, the best holster for you will depend on your personal preferences and needs. However, the two most popular options are Kydex and Leather.

Why We Prefer Kydex to Leather

Kydex holsters come out on top when it comes to retention and reholstering. They are also lighter, more durable, and can be far more customized than leather options.

A custom Kydex holster is also the perfect option for anyone with a light bearing pistol because it can be molded around the weapon light.

Kydex Holster Options

If you are in the market for a new holster there are a couple options to choose from:

IWB Holster

IWB holsters, as the name would suggest is worn inside the waistband, making them a perfect option for maximum concealment. An IWB holster provides a low profile and is easily concealed under clothing.

An IWB holster may be more difficult to draw from unless you have the proper training and practice to use it effectively.

OWB Holster

OWB holsters, on the other hand, are worn outside the waistband and are better for open carry situations. This holster style is popular with law enforcement and military as it allows for a fast and easy draw. It is also more comfortable as the gun isn’t pressed against the body.

An outside the waistband holster can be covered with an additional layer of clothing if you choose to conceal it.

Benefits of Kydex

A quality Kydex holster has many benefits:


Kydex gear is super light making it easy to carry and wear. A lighter holster can make all the difference in your firearm experience. Imagine being able to carry your weapon without the added strain on your body.

Not only is it more comfortable, but it also allows for faster draw times and greater mobility. You’ll feel like you have the edge in any situation, giving you the confidence to take on any challenge that comes your way. A lighter holster is the smart choice for anyone who values comfort, speed, and safety.


A Kydex holster is incredibly durable and will be resistant to impact, abrasion, and chemicals. When it comes to firearms, safety and reliability are paramount. That’s why holster durability is so important.

Kydex holsters are built to last, withstanding the wear and tear of everyday use and any unforeseen challenges that may come your way. Whether you’re a law enforcement officer, a military member, or a civilian gun owner, having a durable holster that can withstand the rigors of your lifestyle is essential.


Because of its weight, a Kydex holster can be extremely comfortable. A comfortable holster makes it easier to carry for extended periods without experiencing discomfort or irritation.

Whether you’re a police officer on patrol, a hiker in the great outdoors, or simply someone who carries a concealed weapon for self-defense, a comfortable holster can make all the difference. It allows you to move freely and confidently, ensuring that you’re always ready for whatever comes your way.


A Kydex holster is molded to your specific gun, creating a secure and tight fit that provides excellent retention.

Holster retention is crucial as it ensures that your firearm remains secure and accessible. A good retention system keeps your firearm in place, preventing it from falling out or becoming dislodged during movement.

Whether you’re carrying for self-defense, law enforcement, or recreational purposes, a high-quality retention system is essential to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.

Low Maintenance

A Kydex holster only requires soap and water to keep it clean and in good condition. Kydex is also moisture resistant, making it ideal for use in wet or humid environments. A holster that requires little to no maintenance ensures that you spend less time cleaning and more time practicing and honing your skills. It also ensures that your firearm remains in top condition, as a dirty or poorly maintained holster can lead to malfunctions or other issues.
