Holsters will always have a special place. They are not just about convenience and practicality, but also about aesthetics and style. And if all these features could last longer in all their glory, it can be the best for the user. When looking for different materials, leather, synthetic, nylon, and hybrid are among the most common options. Leather has always had a unique place in the world of holster materials.
At Black Hills Leather, we handcraft elegant, sturdy, and well-designed leather holsters that stand the test of time. We would like to share the key advantages of leather hostlers that make them unique and so special.
Why Leather Holsters?
Leather is a traditional material of choice for holsters. It is often referred to as the benchmark by gun owners. The organic nature of the material makes it to perform at a level that modern synthetics can find hard to match. It has the unique property of forming itself around a handgun. Gradually, it becomes a custom carrier that provides a secure seat for the gun and retains it well.
The most common advantages of leather holsters are as follows:
1. High Durability
Leather has always been valued for its flexibility. Leather holsters are just as durable as the coats and boots they have been used to make for centuries. These holsters can last a lifetime and you may never have to replace them. Skilled leather makers or repair persons can quickly repair your holster if it ever requires any repair.
Whether you will be using a double shoulder, single shoulder, hunting shoulder, or exotic skin shoulder holster, leather stands out for the comfort it offers. The material has a natural tendency to mold to the shape of a gun. Interestingly, it will also mold to your body.
Leather is softer and more comfortable compared to most other materials. This makes it an even better option for pocket holsters and inside the waistband holsters. IWB holsters hold tightly to the body. Leather doesn’t rub or chafe the skin. Even after carrying a weapon in your leather holster, it will stay comfortable. It will not be your body that has to adapt to the holster, it will be the other way around.
Offering comfort and molding its shape are great advantages. Perpetual beauty is perhaps an even greater advantage of leather holsters.
When it comes to leather, the longer it is used, the better it keeps looking.
- With age, leather develops natural markings
- The markings cover the surface and add another dimension of the aesthetics
- Aged leather is eye-catching and unique
There is nothing else that comes close to leather in terms of classic elegance.
