First Look: 1791 Gunleather Ultra Custom Belt Holster

posted on February 22, 2021

The team at 1791 Gunleather is passionate about building comfortable and useful holsters for the American gun owner. It's that passion that led them to develop the award-winning Ultra Custom IWB holster, and now 1791 Gunleather is launching the new OWB Ultra Custom Belt Holster (UCBH) with Memory-Lok Technology. This new holster blends 1791's exclusive brand of Kydex-like retention with the comfort and beauty of premium leather.  

“This OWB Ultra Custom will change things forever in the gun holster industry once again,” says Alex Toussieh, COO of 1791 Gunleather.

Firearm owners can now customize their OWB leather holster to match their daily carry needs. The OWB Ultra Custom Belt Holster guarantees the perfect fit every single time, no matter if your firearm is a micro or full frame with or without an added red-dot optic. The UCBH  features a high sweat guard, optic cut, and is made from tough premium leather with Memory-Lok Technology on the inside. This delivers on a gentle leather grip while still providing  retention at a level you've come to expect only from a Kydex holster. The UCBH is available in multiple sizes to accommodate a wide range of firearms and is backed by 1791's lifetime warranty.  

OWB Ultra Custom Features

  • Handcrafted using premium 100% Certified American, soft breathable Cow-hide leather.
  • Includes a strong, American steel clip that’s beveled for complete comfort and the safest retention.
  • Open top design for quick draw with your preferred carry-style in mind.
  • Custom design that’s handcrafted to accommodate a wide range of firearms.
  • Reinforced stitching ensuring quality, security, and a lifetime of enjoyment.
