A few weeks ago I was searching the Internet for new holster designs made from Kydex. As much as new designs I was looking for quality. Since the popularity of Kydex as a holster material the number of companies making Kydex holsters has skyrocketed and not always with the best quality.
When I found Rekkr Custom Kydex Holsters I found a darn good holster that didn’t break the bank. Rekkr charges $50 for standard holsters and $90 for a custom like the, self named, “Constitution” shown in this article.
I contacted the company and talked with them about the various holsters they sell. I found they use quality hardware to join the halves and use quality .08 Kydex in the body of the holsters. I was drawn to the design of the holster shown and ordered it. Besides it seemed appropriate since we are celebrating Independence Day this weekend!
Rekkr sells a basic number (nine) of solid color holsters as well as the Gadsden and the holster I received. Rekkr offers these holsters in OWB, IWB compact and paddle. They also sell mag pouches and knife sheaths. Custom options are also available if you contact them.
The fit and finish of these holsters is very good. The edges of the holster match perfectly. The edges are also smoothed and slightly rounded which keeps the user from being scratched by rough edges found on lesser holsters. The holes drilled for the hardware are even and uniform throughout. With the custom holsters the graphics are applied evenly and very uniform in color. The graphics are also crisp and clear. I ordered mine to fit a 1911 which in this case is my Remington R1 Enhanced. The fit was excellent with no play but not overly tight on the pistol. You can turn the holster upside down with the pistol in it and the pistol won’t fall out. The bottom line is these holsters are well made with quality materials and well worth the asking price.
