    Talking Cane & Derby Pardus Kydex OWB...new stuff makes me giddy.

    I freely admit that I have problems....but a lack of holsters is not one of them.

    This is my new Pardus OWB for my HK45 made by Cane & Derby , these guys simply rock. They worked very hard to meet my deadline to take the HK45 to TDI this weekend and the holster arrived today, I'm driving to Ohio tomorrow.

    I have not laid hands on a Raven Concealment but this holster has to be just as good if not better at a fraction of the wait time (about 24 days for a "non-standard" item) and less for items they make lots of.

    They have a variety of colors available, orange, gray, black, pink, LAPD Blue, OD, and coyote brown. They also have a "chocolate brown" and of course, black.

    Here's a pic of the chocolate brown:



    I went with the coyote as I just had a need for something different, if you look at a majority of the threads I've started in this section you'll see a lot of black holsters. I have a feeling a chocolate Pardus is in my future.

    The website is easy to navigate, the sales persons I spoke with were super, I received emails when the order was placed, when it was done, and when it shipped. It left Florida yesterday and arrived today. I am simply thrilled....and the price was good as well.


    Here's my holster







    There's not belt that will be too big for these loops, will they be too big? I guess we'll find out on Saturday.

    I haven't had a chance to wear it as I'm at work but I don't foresee any issues with the holster, it appears very well formed and the edges and hardware appear superb. The only sharp edges I've found are the edges on the inside of the loops, every else is nicely rounded. I don't think this would be an issue for those using Wilderness or 5.11 nylon belts but it's something I will be keeping an eye on.

    They do have different attachment methods available and I will probably change out the kydex loops for some variety of snap on/off loops.

    The holster has virtually no cant which is how I like them, seem like a lot of makers favor the FBI cant or their no cant holsters tend to stick out too far, this looks like it should ride nice and close.

    I generally don't like saying this until I've used a piece of gear, but if you're looking for some quality Kydex, this is it.

    Looks like a well made holster to me, I will have to remember them if I decide I need Kydex.

    Enjoy your time in Ohio, and wave "Hi" to the Cincinnati area for me. TDI is a top notch place, should be a good class.

    I've never seen kydex looking that sturdy. I assume you just flip the clips around for IWB? I'm liking it.

    That is really sharp, congrats! I have to say it looks much sturdier than a Raven Phoenix, and that wait time is not bad at all. I might give them a try if I want to try some Kydex down the road!

    Not sure it works like that, they have the rubberized snap loops available to be used for IWB use.

    1300-2300, but have the funeral and extra duty to cover others while they attend. So, I really have no idea what to expect in the next couple of days. But after this weekend, no more uniform. Its back to beard growing.

    I was seriously hoping you would post pics of this rig when you got it. I am look for a kydex rig for my soon to be had Glock 35. Looks very sturdy. I am still looking at this company and Kaluban Cloak

    So far so good with the holster. One change I made was the loops. The holster actually held the gun too close to the body as pictured above. I unfastened the top screw of the loop and repositioned it to the rear panel and that kicked the butt out just a hair but for me it makes a world of difference.

    I am the holster guru in my circle of gun buddies and I had never heard of Cane and Derby until you talked about them in your original thread. I can defintiely see me ordering one at some point.
