Bora Double Layer Custom Kydex Holster


Please click on the black circled question mark beside each option title for an explanation of the option. 

    The Bora holster is our little twist on the popular taco style Kydex holster.  We took the standard double layer taco holster, which we call the Slim, and incorporated a window.  We then came up with designs for the outside layer to aid in aesthetics.  The Bora(D) is the same holster as the Slim, just with more extreme aesthetics. What you get is a taco holster that performs as well as any on the market but is much more visually appealing.  The Bora(D) is available as IWB and OWB and performs either role perfectly with its slim profile.  

    As for comfort and usability, when wearing the holster, you can't tell it has a window in it.  There is no difference in retention or comfort from the standard Slim(D).  The double layer does, however, have a purpose.  Yes, we use the outside layer to make the holster look good but it serves as a structural component also.  The outside layer adds rigidity and better lockup to the holster.  The additional layer of .080 Kydex makes it a much more solid custom Kydex holster.  

    The Bora holster is available in a Single Layer version also.

About the Bora

    The Bora holster was never intended to be a mainstay in our Kydex holster lineup.  It was mostly a curiosity.  I would offer it for a year or so and then discontinue it.  The Bora came to life around the same time I was finishing up the design of the Indra holster.  I simply wanted to see what would happen if I put a window in a Kydex holster.  I've always been into custom guns and I wanted to show the gun off a little more than a standard holster would allow.  Additionally, I was working on an idea for a holster that would eventually become the Indra.  I needed more than a single "cool" holster.  
    I started with a double layer Slim holster and put a window in it.  I tried different shapes of windows and it was a very exciting but underwhelming process.  After all the struggles I had with the Indra holster, I expected to have a harder time.  There were failures along the way and I learned some valuable lessons but it was a simple and straightforward process for the most part.  The vast majority of the failures were due to window designs that I didn't like.  In the beginning I tried to go too extreme and I would lose structural integrity.  After what seemed like 1000+ holsters, I had what I believed to be a very unique design.  Over the next year I experimented with different designs to use on the outside layer of the holster.  I already had a few edge cuts like War and Waved edges that I could add but I wanted something a little different.  Up to this point I had only made the holster with straight edges.  I wanted something that was truly unique.  I wanted a one-of-a-kind holster design.  I first decided to run with some conservative ideas and see how they would turn out.  All of them looked terrible.  I benched the idea for a while.  
    One day I was working on a Slim holster and due to a mistake, I tried to see what I could do to salvage the holster.  That day the Talon Cut was born.  I got the idea to incorporate the Talon Cut into the Bora holster.  Again, I wasted a lot of material and trashed a lot of holsters but the final result was the Talon Flow Cut.  To this day, it remains one of the most unique custom Kydex holsters on the market.  Once I got the Talon Cut design nailed down, I wanted to try for a less "angry" version of it.  I essentially rounded all of the edges, changed the window and the result was the Flow Cut.  As of today, the Talon Flow Cut and the Flow Cut remain some of our best sellers.

This option is asking which side of your body you will be carrying your pistol / holster on.  Are you right or left handed?


The Cant is the degree at which the holster rides.  0º has the barrel pointing straight down.  


The Claw is primarily used for appendix inside the waistband carry (concealed carry).  It is designed to press your pistol grip into the body to aid in reduced printing.  When utilized properly, it works very well.  

Sweat Guard

The Sweat Guard gets its name from the protection it offers the pistol from sweat.  The sweat guard is most often used as a barrier for ones shirt.  Tuck your shirt behind the sweat guard and it will prevent your shirt from falling into the holster when the pistol is drawn.  

Medium Sweat Guard is by far our most common.  It is approximately 1" short of being a Full Sweat Guard. 

Sweat Guard: None is our recommendation for holsters being worn in the Appendix Location.  A sweat guard tends to be uncomfortable when worn appendix.  

Sweat Guard: None  is our recommendation when using an OWB mount that offsets the holster from the body such as the G-Code RTI system.  

Below is an image showing approximate heights of Sweat Guards.  

Dependent Option:  The exception to the Sweat Guard height rule is this:

The Sweat Guard cannot be cut lower than the Front Guard.  It must be equal in height or higher than the front guard.  If you ask for no Sweat Guard and also ask for a standard front guard (Shooters Cut: NO) , your sweat guard will be the same height as your front guard.  If you want NO Sweat Guard, in the "Shooters Cut" option, choose "YES".  

Shooters Cut


The "RMR Cut" is for red dot optic equipped pistols.  The holster is cut down to the breech face to allow room for the red dot optic.

Note:  The holster will function perfectly fine with an RMR Cut even if your pistol does not have a red dot optic on it.   

Suppressor Sights

Commonly referred to as "Tall Sights" or "High Sights", this option will allow your holster to accommodate up to .500" tall sights.  Suppressor Sights are used with suppressors/silencers as well as with red dot optics.  

If you do not know whether your sights are Suppressor Sights, chances are, they're not.  The vast majority of night sights are not Suppressor Sights.  

Note:  The holster will work fine when built for Suppressor Sights whether you currently have Suppressor Sights on your pistol or not.  

Threaded Barrel

If you have plans of getting a threaded barrel in the future, we suggest you go ahead and have your holster built to accommodate it.  The holster will function fine when built to accommodate it whether you currently have a threaded barrel on your pistol or not.  

Outside Color

The "Outside Color" is the outermost piece of Kydex.  The Outside Color does not physically touch your pistol.  In the picture below, the "Outside Color" is Arctic White.  

We have more colors available than what is pictured here.  We are working on getting more color swatches added to this list.

Inside Color

The "Inside Color" is the innermost piece of Kydex.  It is the piece of Kydex that is touching your pistol.  In the image below, the "Inside Color" is Blood Red.

We have more colors available than what is pictured here.  We are working on getting more color swatches added to this list.

Edge Cut

Edge Cut will define a major factor in the overall appearance of your holster.  The pictures below show examples of the different cuts.  Keep in mind that different holsters will look differently even though they have the same edge cut.  A Slim Reign and a Bora's Reign, both with the Flow Cut, will look differently. These pictures are meant to show the basic idea of certain edge cuts and not to show you exactly what your holster will look like.  

Matching Mag Carrier

The "Matching Mag Carrier" option will carry over the holster color and cut options to the mag carrier.  If you choose War Edges for your holster, the mag carrier will match.  The same goes for Straight Edges, Waved Edges, Patrol Cut, Surf Cut, Flow Cut and Talon Flow Cut.  

Note: Some cuts cannot be transferred to a mag carrier.  For instance, the custom heart cut-out cannot be replicated on a mag carrier as there is not enough real estate on mag carriers.  The matching mag carrier for a custom heart cut-out will have a similar flow to the holster but not a heart cut-out.  All mag carrier cut-outs / windows will be a standard vertical slot cut.  

Mag Carrier's come with only a belt clip or TekLok mount.  

Mag Carrier Hand

"Mag Carrier Hand" is referring to which side you will be carrying the mag carrier on.  Usually, if you carry your pistol on your right side, you will carry your mag on your left side.  This option is not asking whether you are right or left handed.  

Mag Carrier Orientation

There really isn't a wrong answer for this option.  Ultimately, whatever you choose, train with it and become proficient.  

"Bullets Facing Forward" is the most common option and is the choice most often chosen by modern professionals.

"Bullets Facing Rear" was the common option for the old-school guys back in the day.

As with everything else, training methods have evolved.  Many of the old-school methods are still valid and are extremely powerful when mastered, the same as modern methods.  Ultimately, the only thing that matters is that you train with the orientation you choose and become proficient with it.  

Mag Carrier Clip

Mag Carriers are made in either Inside Waistband or Outside Waistband configurations.  

All Mag Carrier Designs are available as Outside Waistband.

Mag Carriers with the Indra and Bora Designs are NOT available Inside Waistband.  

        Note:  Inside Waistband Mag Carriers have the belt clip on the outside of the Mag Carrier.  The belt clip will cover the window if Inside Waistband.  If you choose to have an Inside Waistband Clip on a Bora or Indra Design, the Mag Carrier will not have a window cut into it.  

Rush Order

The "Rush Order" will cut our standard lead time in half.  Our standard lead time is noted at the top of your screen on the white banner.  

    Does your wife or husband ever get upset that you spend too much on gun stuff?  It's a very common issue.  We have been pulled into quite a few marital disputes over the past 5 years.  We've even had a wife call and request to change her husbands holster color to pink.  Sometimes life could be made a little easier with a simple letter.  By choosing the "Marital Alibi" option, we will add a note to your package saying "Congratulations on winning this item!!!!".  A copy of your invoice and how much you paid will NOT be included in the package.  This option is a free service.

    The Marital Alibi started as a joke but we have received tons of positive feedback about it so it's here to stay.
