    It is important that your gun stays in the holster, over time as the holster breaks in, it will loosen. Our holsters never get loose because we have integrated an adjustable retention system into all of our holster designs. Almost all other companies will use cheap rivets and have no adjustable retention and will tell you to heat your holster with a hair dryer to gain back retention. Do you really want to take the chance of 'remolding' your holster with a hair dryer? We find that our customers want the ability to tighten or loosen the holster how they see fit.


    Here at Raw Dog Tactical we feel that having quick access to your firearm is very important. This is why we have incorporated a combat cut design into all of our holsters. Most other competitors will leave a big chunk of leather blocking your hand from getting a full grip quickly. Some even charge you extra for this very important feature. Our holsters come with a combat cut at no additional cost.



    Mostly all rivets will break or come apart at some point in time, this is why we use high quality top post screws on all of our holsters to keep your firearm secure on an every day carry basis. We certainly do not want your holster falling apart in the middle of public because of cheap rivets. Screws also give you the ability to take apart the holster for a good cleaning, we all know how dirty a holster can get from using it everyday.


    Don't settle for cheap imitation holsters that lose retention!

    1. Defender series

      The best out there....not taking away from others, single clip is the way to go for concealed,all the features on the defender is right on the money....recomend to everyone on 20th Jul 2017

    2. Awesome product

      Very comfortable, enjoy the hybrid, fits nicely with no issues or feeling uncomfortable on 20th Jul 2017

    3. Love this holster

      I bought the zombie green holster 2 years ago for my Glock 30 and it fits so well and it is so comfortable I forget I have it on sometimes. on 18th Jul 2017

    4. Great first holster

      This is my first holster for my somewhat larger conceal carry Sig P320C. It fits the gun great for the price. Definitely a good value. The most comfortable place for me was the middle of my back but even wearing thinner t shirts the gun did not imprint and there was a small bump from the clip itself. It did it's job on my three day road-trip test run and I'll likely be wearing it again. on 16th Jul 2017

    5. Great holster!

      I have other hybrid holsters and this by far is the most comfortable all day long wearing iwb holster I own. I purchased one for my EMP 1911 3" SS 9 mm (my ccw) and a second for my XDs 9 mm and I am more than happy with both of these holsters. Will purchase others in the future. on 16th Jul 2017

    6. My favorite holster

      I own 2 of these holster. My first purchase was for my S&W 9mm 5 inch barrel. 2nd one was for my 9mm SCCY. Love them both. Fit is perfect! I even purchased one for my husband. He loves the fit. Love all the color choices.
      I own other holsters but this one is my favorite. Will recommend without hesitation!

    7. #4 for me

      This is my 4th raw dog holster and love then, I brag about them to everyone I know that carries...... on 16th Jul 2017

    8. Awesome product!

      Had the Defender Pro for a couple months now for my Ruger LC9S. I think it's a great product. Well made, great retention and fits the gun perfectly. It is so comfortable that I almost forget I'm even wearing it. Love the variety of color options. I'm currently waiting on my Rawdog OWB holster and mag holder. I expect the same quality and surely won't be disappointed. Highly recommend Rawdog! Quality at a great price. on 15th Jul 2017

    9. Perfect gift, if in doubt

      I bought this for my husband, who had just purchased a new family member, a Beretta 92. He was using an old holster that wasn't a great fit, so he was having trouble carrying all the time.
      This is a guy who is really picky and usually ends up exchanging gifts, so I took a risk but felt confident that if anything it would be a great holster to get the job done in the meanwhile.

      Well he loved it! It is the perfect fit, so much safer and easier to carry. It's on him from the moment he wakes up until he goes to bed, and I finally found the perfect gift.

    10. Top Notch

      Very good item I have purchased
      Looking to purchase more in the future

    11. S&W Bodyguard

      Purchased one of your holsters for my Smith & Wesson bodyguard. I have purchased several holsters still can't find a comfortable holster. until I receive my Holster from you guys holster I purchased from you is the most comfortable and nice fit for a waist holster. Thanks for a good product will be re-ordering for my Smith & Wesson 40 shield on 13th Jul 2017

    12. Great Holster

      Very nice. One of my favorites. on 13th Jul 2017

    13. Excellent product

      I have bought several IWB holsters from Raw Dog,and they are an excellent fit for each firearm,and the holster is comfortable enough to wear all day on 13th Jul 2017

    14. No Brake In Required

      I must say that I'm very impressed with the Raw Dog Tactical team! I've been wearing my Defender Pro Series with a compact and it doesn't feel awkward, unbalanced, or uncomfortable. I know it will last for a very long time. The belt clip does its job at holding the holster in position and the weapon is a speedy draw. The leather is comfortable and cut to size, it is not bulky. Being a Marine veteran I like the combat cut they have. Yes, the trigger is fully protected. I didn't change any retention as they are perfect for me and my weapons. They do come with different size (thickness) rubber retention grommets to arrange to your liking and spare screws. For an IWB holster I love the color selection and the fact the belt clip is "plain Jane" so no person can identify there is a gun holster there. No one will see your color selection unless you show it off. My colors match my guns and liking and they don't run. I do recommend RAW DOG Tactical holster and will be purchasing another in the future. They also include a sticker for the sticker lovers out there. on 13th Jul 2017

    15. IWB Holster

      I have to say...I wasn't feeling to sure about ordering a IWB holster online without touching it...order my style and color...fast shipping...let me tell you....this holster is really comfortable to wear...
      Thank you "Raw Dog"
      on 13th Jul 2017

    16. Exactly what I needed!

      I love this holster! I wear it all day long and it's comfortable! I will always buy from raw dog!! I have shopped and never was happy with the holsters from other companies. But raw dog was perfect. Can't wait to buy the OWb one!! :) on 12th Jul 2017

    17. I now own 2

      Liked it so much on my Walther PPS M2 that I had to purchase another for my Sig Sauer P938. Great, comfortable holster! on 10th Jul 2017

    18. Favorite holster

      This is a great holster. As a female our clothes fit differently and bodies are curvier so it's been a headache trying to find a holster that is comfortable and doesn't require me to buy clothes a size up. Takes a little time to break in the leather back, but once you do, you forget you're wearing it! on 9th Jul 2017

    19. Excellent Holster

      Great holster and even better customer service. After a shipping error (on my part) they were able to resolve the issue and I recieved te holster in under a week on 9th Jul 2017

    20. Best holster

      This is the best holster out definitely will recommend to my friends and family on 9th Jul 2017

    21. Raw Dog IWB Tactical Holster

      Never a fan of Kydex or inside the waistband holsters this one changed my mind. Very comfortable, adjusts for snug retention, does not ride too high and keeps gun close to body for maximum concealment. Excellent combination of materials with leather portion against the body extending just above the slide. The leather helps minimize perspiration and the portion behind the slide keeps perspiration off the gun and the end of the slide from digging into your side.i highly recommend this holster. on 8th Jul 2017

    22. Buy this holster!

      I have a Glock 43 and have an alien gear and crossbread IWB holsters and this holster is by far much better than the other two. Much less combersome and more comfortable to wear IWB on 7th Jul 2017

    23. My holster

      Besides my level 2 that i keep in my truck this is the most comfortable holster I've ever worn. Even when I was on active duty the 15-20 makes wearing easy to get to for if needed to pull out and insertion very invisible to the naked eye. on 6th Jul 2017

    24. Great holster!

      Ordered this holster for my Glock 22, and couldn't be happier. Will be ordering another for my recently acquired Glock 19. Conceals easily and very comfortable. on 6th Jul 2017

    25. Two years old and going strong

      I have owned this holster for right at two years now and it has been great! Still has good retention as is without adjustment of the screws and I wear it on a regular basis as my primary holster. I am writing this now as I have a new carry weapon and after searching for the brand who made it I came across this opportunity to review it. I am purchasing my second and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an easy to use, reliable holster. on 6th Jul 2017

    26. Comfortable!!

      Recently purchased the Defender Pro Series for my M&P Shield 9mm. I needed something that was easy to take off and put on when needed. The clip provides that easy access when needed. The gun fit was perfect and held the pistol very securely. The comfort of the holster is great and pistol does not rub on your skin. Would recommend this holster to anyone looking for a good IWB holster.
      Thanks for a great product!!

    27. Best Holster

      I recently had went through a few holsters before I came across the IWB holster by Raw Dog. The holster fits better than anything else out there. I was not a fan of the IWB holsters until this one. After purchasing the holster I have bought a belt and a OWB holster to complete my rig. The product is better than the more expensive holster like Bravo Concealment and service is outstanding. Thanks, DA on 5th Jul 2017

    28. Holsters

      This is my second holster ordered from you guy's, love both. Waiting patiently for matching magazine holders to match both. Any idea when you will be offering extra magazine holders? on 5th Jul 2017

    29. No regrets!

      Comfortable and functional. Thumbs up! on 5th Jul 2017

    30. effective

      comfortable, conceals well. on 2nd Jul 2017

    31. Great product

      I have 2 of these. 1 for an xdm and 1 for a shield. Both are very comfortable to wear all day. Gun is very secure does not move. I have recorded to many others. Great product for great price. on 2nd Jul 2017

    32. Awesome holster

      I have bought many holsters in the past some that cost way too much then I came across Raw Dogs pro defender for my 3" 1911 Colt Defender it is very well built very comfortable and it looks great in the carbon fiber pattern. I am very happy with this product the looks and quality of this holster I would have paid twice the price. on 2nd Jul 2017

    33. The perfect IWB holster (without needing to tuck)

      Retention =solid.
      Comfort =Schweet!
      2nd Raw Dog Tactical holster of this kind (for a different firearm this purchase). :>
      on 1st Jul 2017

    34. I would buy again and definitely recommend the holster.

      Found out about Raw Dog through Geauga Firearms youtube channel and recommendations and review.Just recently purchased, and its a great fit only have worn it for a few days. I would definitely recommend the holster to any one in need of one. No real issues so far just the leather kind of stiff at first but now is starting to break in and conform. I will definitely be purchasing another when I buy another firearm. on 1st Jul 2017

    35. Great holster

      Ordered one for my Springfield Armory xds 9mm and loved it. Had to order another for my fnh fsn-9. Lifetime customer here guys. on 1st Jul 2017

    36. 2x's the Comfort

      This is my second Raw Dawg Holster. I bought the second one because the first one is so incredibly concealable and comfortable I can wear it all day and for get I'm wearing it!
      I wish Raw Dawgs made one for my Browning BDA 380, they would have another sale.
      on 1st Jul 2017

    37. Excellent holster!

      I'm a big fan of the leather backing for comfort and the Kydex really secures my pistol. Overall, great holster! on 1st Jul 2017

    38. Excellent holster

      Ordered this holster after a little research. Very happy with it. I'm using it to appendix carry a 3.3 XDS. on 30th Jun 2017

    39. extreamly satisfied

      Bought the defender for my xds45 and have zero complaints. I'm a hefty fellow and was a little concerned about the fit, but this holster is super comfortable and has a very small footprint. Definitely recommend for the bigger fellas. on 30th Jun 2017

    40. Awesome!

      I'm enjoying my new holster! It fits perfect and comfortably. Thank you for making a great product! on 30th Jun 2017

    41. Love It!!!

      All the good reviews and articles I've read about this holster were spot on! This is an absolute solid quality product. It's very comfortable and I feel confident using this holster. on 30th Jun 2017

    42. Excellent product!

      Excellent fit, finish and quality. Super comfortable. Highly recommended. on 28th Jun 2017

    43. Everything That Was Promised

      I haven't carried this holster much yet. Bought for my new M&P Shield 45. Worn in the house, fits well and holds gun securely. Looking forward to using it more. on 28th Jun 2017

    44. I strongly recommend this holster

      I got it fairly quick, very adjustable. This is my 1st time carrying ever and I barely notice the holster. It's very comfortable. Fits the gun perfectly. A very good buy! on 26th Jun 2017

    45. I have 5!

      I started with the IWB for my Glock23. Liked it so much I bought 4 more. I have one for my 9c, Shield 9mm, VP9 and P250c. The only IWB holsters I use any more. on 26th Jun 2017

    46. Bought for my .380 LCP summer carry

      Great little light weight carry. I'm a bigger guy and holster doesn't dig in my side like some. Use it with my lcp and shorts during summer. Not as hot as a lot of others. Definitely recommend. on 25th Jun 2017

    47. Perfect!

      Being a smaller sized woman, I have a tinier frame which to hide a firearm. This holster allows me to have my firearm wherever my outfit allows without worrying about the bulk of some of the competitors. It feels sturdy, made of high quality materials. The option to have mine pink makes it just that much better!
      An added bonus is the wonderful customer service I have encountered. I ordered the wrong holster to begin with. The customer service I spoke with, through Facebook (how convenient!) was willing to help me diagnose the problem of the poor fit (order a holster for a completely different firearm) and they were helpful the whole time.
