The most comfortable appendix carry holster available

Appendix or Strong Side...

The Urban holster is designed for both appendix (10:00-2:00) and strong side carry, at approximately 3:00-5:30 on your hip. It is designed to carry your gun with a 15 -degree forward cant (angle), and is adjustable. This helps to maximize the ability to conceal the firearm. It also aids in a quick, smooth draw and presentation.

Comfortably draw and re-holster the firearm...  

Made specifically for each firearm, our holsters are individually built for each pistol, to ensure that each holster has excellent retention and fits like a glove. During the fitting process, your holster will be molded with a hydraulic press to form the shape of your firearm - your holster will fit like a glove.  

Leather with “Gentleman-like traits”...

Our holsters are soft & strong, yet quietly ready for anything. We pride ourselves on offering undoubtedly reliable holsters that are comfortably casual, even while under pressure. The water resistant finish provides protection against rain, sleet, and snow. Our leather holsters age with a natural patina and will enhance with wear.  

Reinforced Opening... 

The reinforced opening makes it easier to re-holster the firearm under normal and stressful situations. You’ll be able to safely and confidently re-holster your firearm, without the holster mouth obstructing your access.

Never sacrifice quality and never mass produce...

Nothing profoundly satisfying happens overnight, including our holsters. Our team of master craftsmen delicately handcraft each holster entirely by hand. While you may think we’re out fishing, we’re actually meticulously perfecting your holster to ensure it provides generational satisfaction. Your grandkids will enjoy it as much as you did. Our current lead time is about 8-10 weeks until your holster ships.

Field Tested...

Field tested by Dads, Cowboys, Professional Athletes, Game Wardens, and by our nation’s war hero's, our collections will outlast and outperform all. Like a great hunting dog, our holsters are there when you need them. We’ve spent months in development by spending weeks in the duck blind, days in deer stand, and weekends on the river, all to ensure each product will withstand a lifetime of abuse.

Do I need to send you my firearm to make the custom holster?

What happens if the holster does not fit?

When a holster does not initially fit it is almost always because it has not been broken in yet.

Beautiful Holster

After almost a full year of trying different mainstream holsters I finally caved and went for a custom leather holster. Now this is quality! This is comfort! I'm so in love with my holster for my EDC I ordered a second one for another gun. Its just exceptional. I will be doing business with Southern Trapper for many years to come.

Southern Trapper The Urban Holster Review

Needed a different clip? Yes. Needed better customer service? 100%

Once I get the new clip I will update. I love how your response skipped over the critical issue that would have prevented this whole thing entirely: your customer service. What do you think about your customer service specifically saying via email in advance: "The holster is designed so there will be a cut out with from for the RDS not to hit." in response to my concern? And then when that turned out not to be the case the very same person defaulted to "buy a new clip, we made the holster right, some people like having the RDS below the wasteline." What the heck is that? A customer asks about a concern before completion of the holster. You guys say its nothing to worry about it. And then when it happens - I get that sort of response? lol its a $175 holster.... I asked about it. Even when I emailed with my initial concern - would that have been a time to say your clip may not achieve this for me and I could look at buying a separate one just in case? Again - its like no accountability and your whole response is like I just ordered something and decided at once I got it that I didn't like it. I was trying to get ahead of the issue. You guys told me it wouldn't be an issue. And then when it was - your whole response was if I had not brought it up in advance. If I had not emailed my concern in advance and then got the holster and got the poor fit - I would have considered that my responsibility and fault. But that's simply not what happened. Had you guys even thought "well, maybe we could have handled that better...we can spare the extra cost and hassle of buying a new clip and sending it to this customer who spent over 400" - maybe I wouldn't have even felt the need to return everything possible I could? Come on... I'm giving an honest review and even said that its a great holster for non RDS . You're trying to publicly dismiss it and minimize how poorly you guys handled it from a business and customer service end. And the fact that I basically only spoke with Aidan - also just poor human interaction. You're not some major corporation with 20 levels of management a decision would have to go through to try and individualize your response and action. You had more options to choose from and you chose the one that benefited you the most without a single thought to me.

5 stars if you do no need one for a firearm with a RDS. 1 star for customer service and it being made for RDS

I ordered one for my Kimber Mako R7 w/ RDS right when it came out. After some time looking at the pictures online with an example of one cut to accommodate a RDS. I was worried that the cut out and height of the holster would cause the RDS to crush into the belt line/pants with any sort of movement. I emailed Aidan to express this concern. I asked about options for the adjustable clip. The exact response was : "Hi Jacob, Thank you for reaching out to us about our IWB carry holsters. The holster is designed so that there will be a cut out with enough room for the RDS not to hit. Also the IWB clip is designed with three holes to allow for someone to change the rise on your belt to lower or higher when needed. The IWB clip has a pivot point on the holster so that it can be turned in 360 degrees to provide any cant you would like. Respectfully, Aidan Chief Happiness Officer" Then I got the holster it did exactly what I was worried about. The only way I could avoid this was if put the clip at its highest setting where the actual top of the clip is - which caused the holster to ride too high and left half the metal clip down below the actual holster which would have left it exposed to damage and discomfort on skin/body. I called and emailed. Over the phone he told me that they made the holster correctly, he was "sorry" my concern wound up to be true, told me that other people that have RDS on their EDC gun leave it even below the belt line tucked in. His email response to when I initially expressed my concern which he assured me would not be the case versus what he told me after I sent him pictures of it and told him it ended up being a problem - is abysmal customer service. He emailed me a link of a different metal clip to purchase to see if that helps. Out of frustration with this - I am returning the belt and mag pouch which they will not be providing me with the label for. It's not the money - its the principle. I pay like 175 for the holster, express a concern about it or ask for modification, get reassured, then get the holster and have the issue I was worried about and then Aidan and the company took ZERO responsibility for this and could not even be bothered to cover the $30 cost for an extra clip and a shipping return label. They literally did nothing. I have ordered custom leather holsters from Falco, Kusiak, Bianchi, Vegas Holsters, and even Galco. If there were any issues at all - they always attended to them and it did not place any financial burden on me. If they misspoke in a communication to me about a concern - they took responsibility for it. I never paid shipping for returns (even across the world). I was never told to simply go out and purchase something else myself to see if that works. I think the holster is 5 stars if you don't need it for a RDS. If you do use it for a RDS you better be "one of those" who wants the RDS hidden under their belt/pant line(?!) then you can also give it 5 stars. But if you want a holster that accommodates a RDS that does not crush the sight into the pants/belt - this is not it. If you want to purchase a holster from a company that does not just present active, excited, fantastic customer attention...right up until they made a mistake and could do a little more to help fix it - Southern Trapper is definitely not it. Absolutely ridiculous and such a shame. It would have been so easy for them to work with me on finding a solution. But at the end of the day it was "yeah you emailed us and we gave a response that old you your concern wasn't anything to be worried about. Oh, you got the holster and your concern was warranted? Well other people wear RDS below the wasteline... you can go ahead and order a different clip yourself... I guess we'll take the return of the other items under our normal return policy but we're not even going to help with that." Here I am - someone who buys like 3 holsters for every gun I have... and they chose this route over prospect of a lifetime or at least long term customer.


Southern Trapper

Hi Jacob, I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the holster because you did not like any of the 3 hole settings of the clip. The best option for you is to try a different clip, particularly the "UltiClip". I apologize that we could not buy the UltiClip and send it to you for free, that is not a clip that we carry or sell.
