The Lima is an inside the waistband (IWB) hybrid holster (1/2 Kydex, 1/2 leather) made for any handgun.  It rides in the 4 o’clock position area and has a fully adjustable cant. It is constructed with a top quality, soft and supple leather which cuts the Lima's "break-in" time from days or weeks to a couple hours.  The belt clips are a thick injection molded plastic which will hold their shape and strength over a long period time.  This holster also provides you the option of carrying IWB while still being able to tuck in your shirt. The main focus of the Lima is durability, longevity and comfort.  It may not be the most aesthetically pleasing holster, but it is the most comfortable holster you will ever wear.  

Kydex thickness: .080

Excellent EDC Holster
Written by Nicolas Mendez on Jan 3rd 2017

The Lima is an excellent EDC holster that feels custom tailored for the wearer's body. The leather is extremely comfortable and durable. I've been wearing mine for nearly one year and it fits like a glove, like it did in the first week. The leather is both durable and comfortable. The kydex is strong and I've had no issues in a year with the loops or brads that secure the clips to the leather. The holster is excellent at minimizing printing since it 'molds' extremely close to the body. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a comfortable, durable concealed carry holster.

Perfect! Exactly what I wanted, Thank you!

Can't Beat Lima for Comfort and Accessibility
Written by William Bransford on Nov 26th 2016

I have never had an IWB holster that worked right and remained out of sight until my Lima arrived. I am a large man, and carrying anywhere between the 2 and 4 o'clock position always made my gun hard to conceal. I opted to carry behind my back, but that irritated my sciatic nerve and was never comfortable. I have worn the Lima with a S&W M&P compact .45 for two days now, with my shirt tucked in, and I find I can carry it at 3 o'clock, and it is not only comfortable, but it is doggone hard to spot. I was a little concerned that my pistol seemed loose in the holster, but the pressure of my belt solved that problem as soon as I put it on, and I did not have to cinch it abnormally tightly to get the retention I was looking for. Great holster!

Pretty decent
Written by Serafin Gomez on Aug 11th 2016

Fit and finish are definitely 5 stars, comfort is also 5 stars and i bet you'd be hard pressed to find a holster that doesn't need break in. This doesn't which is cool but reason I was dissatisfied is there is a little too much play on the actual holster it's not very snug around the gun

Excellent Product. Excellent Service.
Written by Brandon on Apr 28th 2016

The Lima was just what I needed for work and after a week of testing it, it does exactly what I wanted it to. The belt clips keep it firmly in place and the leather backing offers both comfortability and flexibility, which I greatly need with all the moving around at work. The shipping time was much faster than expected, not to mention FREE! Excellent product. Excellent service.

Written by Dan on Apr 16th 2016

Probably the most comfy iwb I have ever had. Only thing is a little tricky to get on and then tuck a shirt in too. Will probably me my spring, fall and winter go to, but may need a different one for summer. (Probably need a slightly smaller piece too!). But all in all very satisfied. (Be aware the leather will be soft! And retention without you body as the support may seem loose! This is normal! Kydex acts as one retention point, and your body will naturally keep firearm in place once leather is against it.)

Good Holster needs slight customizing
Written by undefined on Mar 22nd 2016

I like this holster although it is different than what I am used too. The leather is not stiff like horse leather. It is very soft and flexible. I cut a moon shaped sliver of leather away from the slide butt protection. This gives me a more positive grip during draw. I also cut away a little kydex that is hooking the trigger guard on extraction. I also like the mussel covered so as not to 'bump' the mussel and have the weapon come loose. I requested it covered when ordering and Squared away did an excellent job. This is now my carry holster.

Day one wearability
Written by undefined on Feb 19th 2016

Received this holster and put it on, and it feels amazing. Normally it would take several months of break in time to get leather this soft. If you want a very comfortable holster, you have to definitely try this holster. GREAT QUALITY!!!!

No break in period. Best IWB hands down
Written by Randy Helt on Nov 18th 2015

This is my 2nd Lima purchase and the fit and finish is spot on! I love the supple leather, no break in required. Replacing all my other IWB's with the Lima. This is my 2nd with a third on the way.

The "Lima" is Prima!!
Written by Robert Thomas on Oct 16th 2015

I received my Lima IWB holster on Tuesday, October 13, 2015. From the moment I started wearing it, it was the best holster I had ever purchased. It is comfortable and reliable. Thanks for a great product!

Great product, fits beautifully
Written by Bradley Jones on Sep 28th 2015

Recently ordered a Lima. It arrived exactly as expected a few days after the 4 week time to ship as described on the website. This is the softest leather I have ever felt in ANY hybrid holster. I have had MANY other BIG name hybrid's and nothing was this soft. Kydex fit was perfect and the thing I love MOST about this holster is that it is made so that your body holds the gun in place against the Kydex. Its not rigid and you have a piece of hard kydex between you and the gun. Your own body helps form the leather against the gun making it very comfortable. If your looking for a tuckable, adjustable, IWB holster LIMA is the answer!

Great product Greater price!
Written by undefined on Sep 23rd 2015

I now have 4 of these!! they are all well made and comfortable. This is by far the best value and quality for a hybrid holster I've found. They wear like iron. Great retenton

Sqaured Away Does it RIGHT!
Written by Death_Eater-802 on Sep 3rd 2015

Hands down #1
Written by Randy on Aug 5th 2015

Coming from an alien gear holster, this beats the pants off of it in fit, finish and quality. Very supple leather doesn't need broke in. AAA+++

Top Notch Everything
Written by undefined on Jul 24th 2015

Best customer service I've ever experienced. I'm more than satisfied with this product. It's literally the most comfortable holster I've ever worn by far. I'll definitely be a repeat customer. Look forward to doing business with SAC soon. You won't regret doing business with them.

Comfortable all day
Written by David on Jul 7th 2015

Bought this for a trial to compare against another brands IWB holster. My first impression was good, leather is soft and the kydex looks good (I got the kryptek hylander color). It's fit is even better, curves with your waist well and the belt clips hold on very securely, I wore this for three straight days and barely felt that the firearm was there. Overall a great product, will be buying another soon for my other handgun.

Very comfortable IWB
Written by Ben on Jun 25th 2015

I'd give this holster five stars, However, I'm new to the IWB holster carry option. I did replace my Barsa IWB with this one and I'm extremely happy with how comfortable it is.

Great holster
Written by Jeremiah on Jun 9th 2015

This is my first IWB holster, and I love it. I had mine custom built for a 5" Chiappa Rhino, and I can barely feel it on my hip, even when I'm sitting down. I will definitely recommend SAC to anybody looking for a quality, affordable holster.

Another great holster
Written by Chris on Jun 8th 2015

Like always SAC knows how to get it done!!! Holster looks and fits great. Always recommend SAC holsters!!!

Lima vs Crossbreed
Written by Bob McIntyre on May 14th 2015

I've had crossbreed holsters in the past and I thought they were the most comfortable IWB. I now have purchased 4 Lima holsters and the leather backing is much softer and more comfortable to wear over extended periods of time. Not only is the Lima more comfortable, it is also a better value for your dollar.

Great product
Written by Robert L. on May 13th 2015

Good fit and finish. Very comfortable.

Only regret is I didn't get it when it went on sale
Written by undefined on May 1st 2015

Very comfortable holster and conceals well. I wore it out the first night after receiving and after a few minutes of finding where it was most comfortable I never felt it on my side. By the way, I carry an M&P 45c which, although smaller than full size, is not a lightweight gun. I'll buy again when soon as I need one for my Sig too.

A+ IWB Holster
Written by Chad R. on Apr 15th 2015

The Lima is a top notch holster. The kydex color is great and the gun fits like a glove. Also the leather back is so soft and smooth!

an AMAZING product and a fantastic company to buy from
Written by Greg Vravis on Apr 15th 2015

I have ordered 3 Lima holsters. The fit and finish of this holster is amazing. Im a bigger guy and wasnt sure how comfortable it would be but I can wear all day every day and the only time I know I have it on is when im carrying my .45. The craftsmanship and customer service from Squared Away customs CANNOT be beat!!

Magic Holster
Written by undefined on Apr 3rd 2015

This holster needs to be renamed the Houdini Holster. I am 175 pounds, 5 foot 11 and I can comfortably conceal a Sig SP2022. This holster is extremely comfortable, After just a few days it has started to break in and mold itself to my body. There are times that I forget its on. The kydex is molded beautifully, offering protection and retention. Belt clips are stout and will no doubt hold up to extended use. The backside of the leather is soft and non abrasive in my opinion. The biggest plus to this holster in my opinion is that it is tuckable and there is some adjustment with the Cant of the holster with the belt clips. My single complaint is I wish there was a few degrees more cant built in where the kydex mounts to the leather. Its a minor detail and I give this holster 5 stars and I have recommended it to my friends and will continue to do so!

A quality holster
Written by undefined on Mar 15th 2015

The Lima I just purchased for my Nano is a very comfortable, and well made holster. This is my second holster from Squared Away and I definitely will be ordering again.

Love the Lima
Written by Dave on Jan 23rd 2015

The Lima is a very comfortable well made holster. Shipping was insanely fast...1 day for me. It makes it even better knowing that I am supporting a local business. This will not be my only purchase from SAC.
