Best Level III Duty Holster for Law Enforcement

The all new D3 Level III Duty Holster from Dara Holsters. Designed specifically for Law Enforcement in need of the highest quality, durability, and reliability a duty holster has to offer. Our holsters come with a lifetime warranty, no questions asked.

The D3 comes in left or right hand draw, an adjustable cant angle, flush muzzle coverage, and you can decide between regular Black or Black Carbon Fiber.

The First Level of Retention is our adjustable military grade rubber retention system. This is the same retention system used on all of our holsters and magazine carriers. This system alone allows you to hold your holstered weapon upside down and shake it without falling out.
The Second Level of Retention is the ever reliable thumb throw retention system. Consisting of a rotating hood held in the upwards position by a molded detent, giving it a very similar feel to a tight operating safety on an AR-15 variant rifle. Our thumb throw is a completely manual system with no springs or buttons waiting to break or fall out.
The Third Level of Retention is the ejection port locking system which requires the grip-located snap release button to be broken and the firearm to be rocked down to be drawn out.

All D3s come with a double belt loop with an adjustable cant system. This double loop is made of .125" Boltaron/Kydex riveted to .093" Boltaron/Kydex for the strength needed for a duty holster of this caliber. The cant can be adjusted by loosening the screw with the adjustment path, as shown in the picture.
