Nero Light Custom Kydex Holster


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

    The Nero Light Kydex holster was designed specifically for those that are active and in need of an OWB concealment holster.  The holster was intentionally narrowed at the bottom to allow for more comfortable sitting and twisting.  The belt line was intentionally designed wide to allow for a stable ride.  We wanted a bomb-proof Kydex holster that we could wear daily without issue. The result was a custom Kydex holster that works just as perfectly driving and working as it does in a vehicle defense class.  This has become our go-to holster when we carry OWB.  When paired with our standard 1.5" or 1.75" belt loops, the holster rides close to the body and allows for a comfortable carry.  The double layer Kydex front offers increased rigidity and lockup over single layer holsters.  

The Nero Light is available in a non light bearing version also.  Check out the Nero Holster.

About the Nero Light

    The very first Nero Light was a rare moment.  I walked into the machining booth with the intention of machining a unique Kydex holster.  An hour after walking in, I came out with the Nero Light.  Its the only holster of our original designs that took less than six months to perfect.  No changes were needed.  The very first Nero Light holster we ever made passed every test we threw at it.  There were no plans, no drawings or schematics.....just free handing and going with the flow.  It was definitely a change from the norm since many of our holsters have required tons of testing and changes to be ready for the public.  The Nero Light came so easy but it still ranks among the top Kydex holsters in terms of functionality and durability.  The testing was a breeze.  
    The Nero Light wasn't only a rare occurrence because it came so easily.  It's rare because the Nero Light was never intended to be a production holster.  It was a holster that I built for myself with plans of offering them to employees....maybe.  I had no plans of putting them up for sale.  I wanted something unique and different....something no one else had.  I never intended to "test it" in the same way we test production holsters.    We test our production holsters by running them hard and destroying them to see how much they can take.  I never intended to do that.  I ran it hard like I always run my gear.  I don't baby anything.  I simply ran it hard and didn't pay attention to how it was doing.  I took it through a few classes and made it ugly.  After those few classes it had deep scratches, burn marks and an overall look proving it had been used and abused.  Some of those classes were hardcore.  Once it survived the classes I then decided to do official testing on it, so I destroyed it.....scientifically, of course.  Once the official testing was complete, I built more and passed them around.  We put them through their paces and we took them through more classes.  After seeing the torture we were able to put them through and receiving constant compliments on the looks, I decided to offer them for sale.  To this day, when I carry OWB (usually winter months), I reach for the Nero Light.  In my personal opinion, there is no better OWB EDC holster than the Nero Light Kydex Holster.

If we do not have your light listed, we may still be able to build a holster for your light bearing pistol.  When we do this we will ask that you send us your light to make the holster with.  Please contact us if you wish to know whether we can build a holster using your light.  We can with most lights although there are a few we cannot.  

Note:  We DO NOT guarantee that our holsters will fit lights that are not genuine name brands.  If you buy a knock-off Surefire X300, it may fit our holsters and it may not.  We build our holsters with genuine versions of lights and we can only guarantee that they will fit when you use genuine versions of the light.  
If you have a knock-off, play it safe and send us the light to build your holster with.  If you send us the light, we can guarantee the fit.  Many non-genuine versions of lights have different dimensions or are manufactured to different tolerances than their genuine counterparts.  


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.  

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".  


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 Front Color

The Outside Front Color is the outermost layer.  In the picture below, it is the Tiffany Blue Carbon Fiber Layer. 

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

Inside Front Color

In the picture below, the Inside Front Color is the Black Carbon Fiber Layer.

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

Rear Color

The Rear Color is the layer of Kydex that is between the pistol and your body.  In the picture below, the Rear Color is the White Layer.

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 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.
