When you think you need to find a new duty holster, it sounds like a simple task, doesn’t it? Well, that’s only if you define simple as something that can save your life or end up killing you. That might sound a bit overly dramatic, but when it comes down to it, your duty holster is one of the most important articles of safety equipment you’ll ever take into the field. And, it’s not an easy decision anymore.

The easiest decision is plain, basketweave, or Clarino. Your department uniform code usually makes that one for you. But now come the harder and arguably the most important decisions, such as retention level, security vs. safety concerns, and fit.
