This holster is well worth the wait. It's very well made and securely keeps the pistol in it's place with the perfect amount of retention. Everything from the Kydex quality to the cut and finish of the holster indicates total craftmanship. SquaredAwayCustoms is now my favorite holster maker and I will certainly be using them again.
Niner is a minimalist OWB holster with adjustable retention and a Safariland SLS hood retention system. The design is a wrap style rather than pancake like most. Niner is made with .080 thick Kydex and secured to the belt with a 2" Safariland UBL. The Niner is perfect for those looking for a higher level of security out of their holster. Niner can be made with or without a weapon mounted light.
Please keep in mind, Safariland does not sell the SLS hoods. So all SLS hoods on our holsters are pre-owned but are in 100% functional condition.
As with all of our holsters we offer FREE shipping, a lifetime warranty and a 30 day satisfaction guarantee.
I had this holster made for my M&P 2.0 and light. First off, the fit is great. I hardly adjusted anything and the gun was snug, great retention, and didn't need to be "pinched" or overtightened to hold firm. The hood latch is my personal favorite method of level 2 retention. Easy to slide forward and clear while drawing, but very sturdy when engaged. Very smooth draw even under stress off of my midride mounted to my Orion 2.0 belt. I ordered the multicam finish. Excellent finish quality that seems like it'll hold up well. Swapped out the UBL for a safariland fork to mount to the above mentioned belt's receiver plate. It's a long order time. Mine took 7 weeks, but it was well worth the wait. I wish I knew about this holster sooner before buying so many others. Of all my OWB holsters, this is my favorite.
This is a phenomenal holster. It is a thick high quality kydex and the passive retention has a very positive click. The hood is a Safariland which means it is excellent quality. It has an extremely smooth draw stroke and feels very rugged. I can honestly say this is one of the best duty type holsters I have ever owned. I only have one complaint. The wait time was pretty significant. It does say to expect an 8 to 10 week wait. It was actually around 12 weeks. I completely understand small companies like this one can easily get backlogged. I personally don't mind waiting for quality. If you don't mind waiting a while for a great custom holster either, you will not be disappointed with this purchase.
This is my second holster from SAC. Both are excellent and I have zero complaints. I only have one or two other holsters I can say that about. I also have a box full of 10-20 holsters for various guns that I will never use for one reason or another. My SAC holsters will never end up in that box. First the number of companies making holsters for P80's is minimal. And of the companies that do, some of them are not great. I have two other holsters from two other companies for my P80's and fit and finish and customer service leave more to be desired. That is not the case with SAC. Quality, fit, finish, construction are all great. Definitely worth the wait!
Can’t say enough good things about this holster or company. Fits my sidearm like a glove. Bought it to fit my sidearm with a surefire light on it, and it’s perfect. The extra loop on the top moves great and covers the back of the slide just like it’s supposed to. I will recommend though that if attatching to a battle belt (for example the hsgi battle belt) that you get a slotted belt that you can weave the inner belt out, through the holster then back into the battle belt. Other than that this companys products are a dream. This is my second holster and I will be buying more!
The niner I purchased for my Glock w/ TLR1 was absolutely worth the wait. It looks fantastic with the OD finish. My Glock seats itself perfectly inside with no movement, and the draw is smooth. The hood is wicked easy to manipulate. Overall solid holster, and I'm excited for its continued use. I would without a doubt get future holsters from Squared away customs.
Squared Away Customs doesn’t disappoint when it comes to quality and attention to detail. They have great customer service as well. It’s hard to find good retention holsters other than safariland, so being able to have one custom made for your gun with the exact light you want is awesome. I like that it also comes with the mid ride safariland belt loop and safariland hood. Haven’t been to the range yet, but first impressions and usage during dry fire practice it worked flawlessly. Overall great holster!
I'm extremely satisfied with the holster I received. The retention system is well integrated into the holster and gives absolute confidence in retention. With a bit of practice it is effortless to defeat the strap and draw the pistol just as fast as from a level 1 holster. I asked for a custom feature to support my aftermarket modifications, and SAC delivered. Customer service was very attentive and helpfully resolved any issues I had, as well as kept me informed of the status of my order. Would definitely recommend this holster to a friend.
