99.1% Customer Satisfaction

"Materials and craftsmanship are superior. It’s an absolute perfect fit for my CZ P10z, custom fitted for the threaded barrel and suppressor ready sights. Worth every penny and you’ll be handing it down to your kids or grandkids someday!"
- Steven of Cypress, TX

"The best custom holster maker that I have found. I ordered several custom holsters for some client gifts. They looked amazing and fit perfectly. Loved them so much I now carry one myself. Love the fit and finish. Really a first class true custom holster. I wear it everyday."
-Robert of Ft. Worth, TX

"Very glad to have made this purchase. Worth the money. I have tried some other really expensive leather holsters, and they don't seem to have the snug wrap around my hip like this holster does. Happy with the belt clips as well. I'd absolutely recommend these guys. I also made one request into customer service, and got a response immediately. That's the type of interaction I want with people I do business with!"

IWB Holster for Wilson Combatt

100-Year Warranty...

Our philosophy is simple - Exceed your expectations no matter the cost. We'll never mass-produce, we'll never sacrifice quality, and nothing will ever leave our shop unless we're certain it will last 100 years. Every piece of leather is built with pride and integrity to provide a lifetime of satisfaction. We're so confident in our talented craftsmen, durable materials, and outstanding designs, that we warranty them against workmanship for 100 years.

Strong Side...

The Defender is designed for strong side carry, at approximately 3-5:30 on your hip, and are designed to carry your gun with a 15 -degree forward cant (angle). 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.

Wildlife Conservation Program... 

Our holsters tell stories of majestic wild animals that were harvested sustainably through national wildlife programs. We’re committed to supporting nonprofit groups that improve wildlife conditions and advocate for nature. At checkout, you’ll choose a conservation group to donate 1% of the order toward - together we’ll make sure our beautiful world continues to flourish for future generations.

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 between 5-6 weeks, before your holster will ship.

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.

Holster for STI Combat Master

Overall the holster is just ok... I think the leather could be molded better to the gun and there needs to be reinforcement where the safety hits the top of the holster (maybe another piece of leather stitched to that area). It tends to bend over and makes reholstering a pain in the ***. For this kind of money I would expect that the finer details would be there. That being said, the packaging is nice and I would still possibly consider buying another model of holster from Southern Trapper.

Hello Larry, thank you for the feedback. Is your suggestion to add reinforcement piece to the backside of the sweat guard, which would be similar to the reinforcement piece on the front?

Very happy

I came home to find this beauty waiting for me. I was amazed by the instant comfort fit. I thought it would take some getting used to, but it’s like we became one the second I slipped it in my band. Very little break in is needed as the resistance for my CCP is spot on. Customer care is on point, too!!! I messaged to change from The Professional to The Defender and was met with kindness and respect. Thank you so much for being such an awesome company. I will be making future purchases
