Love this holster. It works great with my laser, looks good and fits like a glove. I would buy from them again.

Great holster! I got the Omega with mag carrier for the SA XDS mod 2. It’s comfortable, conceals well, and great quality. I’m amazed by the quality look and feel vs other hybrid holsters I’ve owned. Attention to detail is very evident. Great customer service as well! Thank you again for the awesome holster!

I have a couple holsters from these guys, and they are great quality. I've had other hybrid holsters before and they are usually bulky and although serve a function, they can't compare to the quality craftsmanship you get with these holsters. I have two of the craftsman series horsehide Patriarch holsters and I never go out without one of them on. Mine both came with adjustable retention (a $10 add on feature) that they included for free. The weapon fits perfectly and you can adjust the draw to fit your needs. Thank you and Merry Christmas! Can't recommend their holsters enough.

Like so many others here, I came to share my experience and hopefully help someone make a decision and say thank you. Kydex and leather are exactly that. What sets these apart is the finish work and attention to detail. I ordered online and the process was simple. A few weeks later I got my holster in the mail. It was well worth the wait, and I hate waiting! I got the Omega holster because I liked the ability to convert it from iwb to owb, so I got the 1.5 inch speed clips too. It's very comfortable carrying inside and outside the waist. FYI, I carry the P365 with Armalaser laser. Thank you for the free horse hide upgrade and the great holster! I'll be ordering more and telling everyone I know.

I got the Omega holster for my S&W Shield M2.0 9mm with Viridian Reactor laser. I LOVE this holster. The horse leather backer was comfortable from the first day. The weapon draws smoothly and has great retention, although it is adjustable. I'm back on the website now to buy the outside the waistband clips for winter carry and was thinking about getting a mag carrier too. Thank you for the perfect holster! I've been telling my friends they HAVE to get a holster from you guys.

I picked up a patriarch for M&P Shield which has a Crimson Trace CTLG LL-801G on it.  I absolutely love this holster. Its comfortable and very well made. You can easily adjust the tension and the materials are top notch.  The hand written thank you message on the receipt nice touch. I want to let you folks know I appreciate the hard work you put into my holster. I have and will continue to recommend your company to fellow shooters. Thanks for a great job! :)

This is the best holster I own it is comfortable and I can wear it all day long with no problems and that is with carrying a 7 shot 357 magnum revolver

I would just like to say thank you your holster is the most comfortable one I own especially cause it is for a S&W 686 plus it conceals very good and does not weigh down my pants even for such a heavy gun. Brian is a awesome guy after I placed my order he contacted me and asked particulars of the firearm to make it right the first time and when it arrived the fit & finish was amazing. I will definitely be doing more business with this company and telling everyone I know about exarchy holsters also I like the fact that he is in Colorado as well thank you again for a great holster and great customer service.

I love my new Patriarch IWB holster! The materials and workmanship are top notch. Like many of the others here, I also experienced great customer service, quick follow-up to questions, and flexibility to make a couple changes to the holster that I wanted. I got the Craftsman Series in horse hide and been wearing it about 6 months now. Looking to buy another one and thought I’d share my experience with others.

This is a beautiful piece of work. The gun is already adjusting to the holster.  I love it. You don’t charge enough for your efforts. It has been a pleasure working with you. Take care.

I love this holster. I wear it every time I step off my property. It has great sweat protection. I sweat more than most it has never made it through to my weapon. It seems a tad stiff at first but does mold to your body where very soon you will forget you are wearing it. I will say before purchase I had not heard of them. My weapon configuration left me with few choices most more expensive and others too generic. I am here now to say I wholly endorse this company for an outstanding product. If you need a holster this is the company to come to.

Great holster maker. Brian made what I wanted, even though C5L takes up a lot of his time. He gets it done and pays attention to detail. Great guy, and glad he's just a couple of houses down from me.

I found this company after researching countless other holster companies in a desperate attempt to find a IWB holster with adjustable retention for a Kahr ST9. There was very little holsters available,which is a shame for such a good American made pistol. I almost settled for one with fastened rivets that I knew would fail once broke in. Alast I found Exarchy holsters! Not only did their quality and attention to detail surpass others I found, but they also had one for a Kahr ST9! Options and customizations were plentiful. They even contacted me after realizing they had one that was better than the one that I purchased for CCW. They refunded me the difference after my ok and i now have the holster I always wanted. I applied dancing shoe adhesive suede to the inner part of the Kydex, and threw the scrap on the back of the leather for a little extra comfort. I have the Tig series and was hoping the custom finish would last longer with a little cleaning maintenance.

If you are reading this to help decide whether to order an Exarchy holster, you can stop reading and order one with the following certainty guaranteed: Brian Ewald's personal attention to every detail, from listening to the customer's requirements, suggesting options for meeting them, offering upgrades to exceed expectations, and providing unparalleled personalized customer service, will continue to impress you long after you open the padded envelope, exclaim "WOW!", and begin wearing a true example of perfection in holster workmanship, fit, and function. Five stars doesn't do justice to Exarchy Holster Company.

I also stumbled upon Exarchy due to buying a Viridian product, but I can't be more happy that I did. I moved to appendix carry to decrease printing and after purchasing a single stack as my EDC. Brian was super helpful and patient as I described what I was thinking and how I intended to carry. He provided me with options, let me know what his professional opinion was when I talked to him about my thoughts, and made it happen. He even helped me match the FDE to the pistol for no upcharge. Additionally, he asked if I was military and gave me the discount, I didn't even have to ask, which I hate doing. Probably one of the best experiences I've had buying ANY product. It's a beautiful holster with exceptional craftsmanship. Follow-on customer service is great too. Even if future holsters don't have the need for the Viridian instant-on feature, I will be a repeat customer. ***For some reason I can't post the pictures I took of the handiwork, but I hope the review speaks for itself***

I received my custom PT92 holster and I'm not a bit disappointed..It's everything I was wanting to conceal carry that pistol again. It holds the gun tight to my side so it's even concealed under my t-shirt. The craftsmanship and quality is excellent. I love it. Thanks!

Received holster today. Excellent workmanship. I've bought hybrid holsters for the rm380 from another company [won't mention name] and your leather quality and workmanship are superior. I have to tell you i'm impressed.
Thanks again for the excellent holster.

My wife and I have been carrying concealed for years. I carried a large frame PT92 Taurus pistol and she carried a five shot 38 Special. Even though she's an excellent shot, I wanted her to carry something with a few more rounds. We decided on the Taurus PT111 Millennium G2. She wanted a Lazer so I purchased a Viridian E Series Lazer for it. I was still happy with my EDC but it is heavy and every holster I purchased for it held it away from my body. It was obvious that I was trying to conceal a pistol under my shirt. I decided to just carry it around our farm in case of a home invasion or if I ran into some coyotes. I then bought me the same pistol as my wife's compact pistol. I purchased a paddle retention holster. I loved the retention feature but it too stuck out from my body and imprinted on my cover shirt. It was lighter so I just figured it was what it was. I mounted the same Lazer on mine and then that holster would no longer work. I found a nylon holster that would work but it was not a retention style, it still imprinted and it was very uncomfortable not to mention that it required a strap to keep the gun from falling out every time I pulled my pants down. Finally the the belt holder part started separating from the holster. With a drawer full of other holsters that didn't work, I needed to find one that did. I contacted Viridian. They didn't have one but they did send me links to about five companies that might have what I was looking for. I checked out each one and choose Exarchy Holster Company for several reasons. They offered a quality retention holster at a good price but the main reason was because they're Made in America and the company is Veteran Owned. I purchased the Midnight Series outside the belt style holster. It's perfect and exactly what I've been looking for since I started carrying. Nobody can tell that I'm carrying anymore and I sometimes forget that I even have it on. I love my new holster so much I ordered one for my first favorite carry, my PT92. Brian contacted me and offered some suggestions to make my holster even better. Brian really cares to make sure you're holster and experience is the best. I'm patiently waiting for my new holster to hit my mailbox now. Thank you Brian!

Really nice craftsmanship. You typically get what you pay for, but in this case you get more. Very good prices for the quality. You can tell they really take pride in their work. I have a couple of their holsters now and I'm impressed every time I open the package. The packaging is basic. Just a plastic bag and padded envelope, but it comes with some stickers and extra hardware. Guess that's how they help keep costs low, but who cares about packaging. You just throw it away. Looks like I care since I wrote about it, but I don't. Lol

Great holster! I wanted something a little different than what was pictured on the website so I called and ended up getting a custom holster made. Didn't cost much more than the ones on the website and they gave me a discount for being military on top of that. I carry OWB and wanted a full sweat shield and full Kydex covering the muzzle. The finished product is very nice. I used to carry CB but they don't do any customization. So glad I found these guys.

I was was hesitant to get a hybrid holster after using an all Kydex one for several years but it finally broke and the warranty had expired so I needed a new one for my edc. With the 2 week trial and lifetime warranty, I figured I couldn't go wrong and send it back if it didn't work for me. After wearing it for the first two weeks it was so much more comfortable against my body. I've had mine for about 4 months now and love it. Get the horsehide version! Great craftsmanship and excellent customer service too. Thank you.

I had never heard of this company before but Viridian Weapon Tech recommended them for holsters that worked with their lights and lasers. I have a Shield with a Reactor laser. I got the compact holster (Patriarch) and so far it's been great! The Instant On feature works perfectly with my laser (you tube that if you don't know what it is). I've had the holster for about 7 months now and it has broken in nicely. I carry everyday. This has become my favorite holster ever. Don't think twice about ordering from these guys! Thank you for the great holster and military discount!

I bought a patriarch holster for my glock 43 and it's so comfortable. I wear it between 5-5:30 for EDC. I'm constantly on the move with my job and in and out of my truck. I don't take it off when I drive or when I'm sitting at work. It did take about 2 weeks to get my holster, which is pretty fast really. The only thing I would change is I wish I would've gotten the combat cut. Wondering if I should attempt to cut it myself. Otherwise, great holster! Thank you!!!

I love my Patriarch for my Shield with Viridian laser. The holster is comfortable and fits the gun and laser perfectly. The instant on feature is awesome too! Thank you guys very much for the awesome work. I'll be ordering another for my P365 soon!

This is a great holster. Comfortable, durable, functional and well built. My holster retains well and rides perfect. Most of all Brian takes pride in making a superior product and by providing excellent service after the purchase.

Had my holster for a just about a month now. Can't tell you how pleased I am with the holster, the company and Brian's commitment to service and quality. Being up there in years and somewhat banged up (arthritis in my hands and a damaged shoulder), getting a holster to fit not just my weapon, but my physical limitations has been a concern. The fit is great, and Brian's concern for my satisfaction (many e-mails and telephone conversation) to make sure the holster was the right fit for me, has me very, very satisfied and I will be ordering another holster very soon, I'm thinking. If you're on the fence about ordering from this company, chat with Brian and I believe all your concerns will be addressed satisfactorily and you will end up with a superior product.

I bought the Gun+One holster for my Ruger LCP II with Viridian Reactor Tactical Light. The quality is amazing. They definantly use premium materials. I got black horsehide and it looks and feels great, even from the first time I put it on. I've had it a couple months now and it is even more comfortable. Seems to be wearing fine. Some marks from my gun going in and out, but that's expected. The holster works with Viridian's Instant-On, so it makes it nice to not have to turn the light on manually. I'll be getting the patriarch holster next. I just have to figure out which laser I want to put on my gun first. I'm giving 4 stars because I don't like to pay shipping, but the holster is great! I see they have sales on occasion and offer free shipping, so I'll have to time my purchase next time. Overall, great value though.

Recently purchased 2 patriarch holsters for my Sig and Makarov 9mms. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail provided by this company is beyond outstanding. I am a southpaw and am happy to say I can now order a new kydex piece for any of my other pistols. Try and find a left handed version from other sources for your favorite weapons (you can't)!! I also received both holsters within 5 days. Looking forward to doing more business with you. Thanks!

These guys make quality holsters! I got a holster for my S&W Shield 9 with an Armalaser laser and it fits perfect. Retention is awesome. I got the Patriarch model which has proven to be very comfortable! Can't go wrong with one of their holsters. I also have a couple crossbreed holsters (which are nice) but Exarchy's attention to detail is by far superior, if that's your thing. Plus it has replaceable kydex pieces so if you change your gun you don't have to buy a whole new holster. I ordered my holster on a Friday and it shipped and was delivered by the next Friday. That's pretty quick turnaround for a custom holster. Hope this helps you make your decision. Get one already!
