Alpha Slide OWB

Outside the Waistband


The Exarchy™ Alpha Slide™ OWB holster is our answer to the hybrid OWB holster. The Alpha Slide™ OWB is custom fitted to your favorite open carry weapon, including any light or laser option. The 1.75 inch belt slots provide a lot of versatility in carry position, as you just slide this holster on your belt at any position. The holster features the default 10-15 degree weapon cant (non-adjustable) to help provide easy draw and re-holstering of the weapon. The Alpha Slide is mid/high-ride and hugs tight to the body and can be easily concealed with a cover garment, like a jacket. This holster is extremely comfortable and a great alternative for those that don't have a concealed carry permit, live in a state that doesn't allow concealed carry, or you just prefer open carry.

The Alpha Slide™ OWB features:

  • Full Length* Vacuum-Formed Kydex® Shell

  • Available for 100's of Firearms

  • Adjustable Retention for the Perfect Draw/Fit

  • Fixed 10-15 Degree Cant and Ride Height

  • Premium Leather Steer Hide or Horse Hide Backer

  • 1.75 inch Belt Slots

  • LIFETIME Warranty

  • Craftsman™ and Midnight™ Series Available  
    *Full length Kydex shells available for weapon configurations that fit on the leather backer without modification (includes many compact, subcompact, and micro firearms. Full size weapons will typically not have full length Kydex shells, leaving the muzzle/slide exposed).

Craftsman Series™ holsters showcase our handcrafted quality. No detail is overlooked. These holsters feature our handcrafted premium leather backer with hand-sanded, dyed, beveled and burnished edges. Our Craftsman Series™ Holster Hides™ are hand-dyed to order and custom options are available.* These holsters feature a hand-formed scabbard molded to your specific firearm and any light or laser option for the perfect retention. The Kydex® scabbards are vacuum-formed, cut, and then the edges are sanded, buffed, and polished. The Craftsman™ Series can be customized to your choice of leather (steer or horse), leather color and finish options, Kydex® colors, and hardware finish options, all at no additional costs.

Midnight Series™ holsters are perfect for the budget-minded gun owner. These holsters are cut from the same quality Holster Hides™ as our Craftsman Series™ but do not feature hand-sanded, or burnished edges. The edges are beveled for increased comfort and provides a nice smooth unfinished edge to the hide. To keep costs low, the Midnight Series™ holsters are only available in black cowhide or horsehide, with black Kydex® and black stainless steel hardware.

No matter what selections you choose, you are getting THE.BEST.HOLSTER.PERIOD.

*Custom options/colors are subject to additional fees. Please contact Customer Service for your exact needs.
