First Look: DeSantis Sidestep OWB Holster

posted on June 23, 2020

For nearly five decades, DeSantis Gunhide, based out of New York, has been developing, designing and manufacturing high-quality gun holsters for the concealed-carry market. The company takes pride in its craftsmanship by using only American-Premium hides and the toughest synthetics available for its holsters and accessories. It is a leading holster manufacturer for city, state and federal law enforcement agencies, the U.S. armed forces, as well as hunting/sport shooting organizations around the world. DeSantis delivers a full range of holster products and accessories designed to meet or exceed the needs of its customers.

Now, DeSantis Gunhide has announced the release of its latest OWB holster, the Sidestep. The Sidestep is a trailing slot OWB holster that is packed with great features. The full height, double-thick sweat shield on the holster keeps your pistol from coming into contact with your skin, and the holster is designed to accommodate pistols with or without Reflex Sights on top of the slide. The tensioning device inside the holster gives the user the option for a custom fit to their gun, and the trailing slot maximizes concealability. It is is built from premium saddle leather and is precisely molded with a 15-degree forward cant.

The Sidestep is now available in sizes that accommodate the following pistols:
Glock: 19, 19 Gen 5, 19x, 45, 23, 32 models, with or without reflex sights
Standard 5 Inch Slide 1911 Models from Colt, S&W, SIG Sauer, Ruger, Kimber, Springfield and similar 1911s, with or without a red-dot sight
SIG P320 and P250 Compact Carry with or without a Romeo1 reflex sight
SIG P320 XCompact

The Sidestep holster is available in black or tan leather with an MSRP of $78.99. For more information on this holster or other holsters and gear from DeSantis Gunhide, please visit
