CrossBreed Holsters is introducing its new Rogue holster, the company’s first all-Kydex holster system. For the new design, CrossBreed’s engineers wanted to create an all-new platform that distinguishes itself from the Kydex-pocket/leather-backer holster designs for which CrossBreed is known. The Rogue holster system has expansive customizing options while comfortable and ergonomic--the key considerations for CrossBreed when designing a new holster.

At the heart of the Rogue system is a two piece all-Kydex gun pocket, the first in Crossbreed’s 16-year history of manufacturing premium EDC holsters. The holster pocket is folded for precise fit and features a smooth skin side for maximum comfort. Strategically positioned screw holes and slots allow for multiple positioning and retention adjustment so the Rogue can be oriented for custom carry locations such as strong side, appendix, and cross-draw. The holster also works with both stock and modified handguns and accommodates red dot sights, thanks to its suppressor-height front sight channel and optic cut.

Included with the Rogue holster is an all-Kydex mag pouch which can be secured to the holster via a flexible plastic band to better fit the contours of the user’s torso. The magazine pouch can also be separated from the holster and worn independently at whatever body position you chose. Two plastic bands are included so users can choose between a vertical or forward cant magazine orientation.

As with most CrossBreed holsters, the new Rogue holster also works with multiple belt clips to further expand your carry options. These include the supplied Reckoning-style metal clips as well as Ulticlip, Monoblock, IWB snap loops, and OWB loops. Between the available clip options and the integrated cant and height adjustments, the Rogue can be fine-tuned to meet most any carry style comfortably yet still allow for a smooth and fast draw and safe re-holstering.

The Rogue is also compatible with the CB Concealment Claw, which was first introduced on Crossbreed's Reckoning holster. This device positions the gun’s grip closer to the body during IWB carry to minimize printing and obstruction. Finally, optional Cerakoted hardware in Magpul FDE, NRA Blue, SIG Pink or Blaze Orange adds flare and enhanced durability to the holster system.

MSRP for Rogue holster starts at $79.95, and for more information on this product or any of CrossBreed’s holster and concealment solutions, please visit
