Product Overview

OUT OF STOCK? Check the lead time & inventory page for more information.


Our minimalist outside the waistband holsters are different in that they are a single piece of material that wraps around your pistol, instead of two pieces like on the standard OWB holsters. This style is commonly used on duty style holsters, drop style holsters, or just as a alternative to a belt height holster. Several options for belt attachments are available, and we can add QLS (Quick Lock System) holster side adapter, both the QLS adapter and receiver, or an RTI adapter to go with your G-Code RTI belt slide. We do not offer the RTI belt receiver/slide at this time.

Holsters ordered with paddle or Teklok attachment (OWB minimalist holster) will not feature a "drop." The paddle & Teklok attachments will give the holster a belt height ride. This type of holster looks similar to the drop style holster, but do not feature any sort of drop below the belt line. The only carry adjustment is the degree of cant.

Holsters ordered with a Safariland drop attachment, Safariland QLS attachment, Safariland blocking without attachment, or RTI hanger can belt used in a drop holster setup.


Note on Parker Mountain Machine comps - if you have your comp on a shortened slide, such as the P320 XCOMP Ultra on a compact slide, with the X5 Frame, please leave a comment at checkout about your setup. If I don’t have info on your custom setup, your holster may not be made the way you’re expecting. 

Note on optic cuts - optic/RDS cuts are made to generally be compatible with most common pistol red dot optics. If you have an SRO sized optic, please make a note at checkout and we will enlarge the cut to be compatible.

Cascadia Concealment does not currently support the Recover Tactical rail attachments. If you select a light option that does not attach to the pistol's factory rails, your order will be canceled and refunded.


*PL-MINI 2 -- Holsters made compatible with the Olight PL-MINI 2 will be made (when possible) with the mount and light body flush with the muzzle end of the pistol's frame. This will allow the user to adjust the light to their liking. The channel created behind the light at this position will accommodate  light being slid back towards the trigger guard at any closer position, as long as the light's mount is in the flush-to-frame position. On pistols with only one rail slot (Glocks), the light's mount will be on that slot, with the light body flush to it's frame. Sub-compacts will have the light and mount as close as possible to the trigger guard and frame. This standardized setup will more than accommodate Olight's suggested light mounting in their user manual. If you have questions regarding this light positioning, please use the Contact Us link. Holsters will not be returnable if your personal light preference isn't compatible with this standard setup.

***No two products are exactly alike. Each item is handcrafted and may vary slightly. Some variation in design may occur without advanced notice.


The Fabric/Cordura wraps listed in the color options come over standard base color Kydex that most closely matches the pattern/color of the wrap. Custom color wraps can be ordered via email. Please email us with such inquiries. We do not currently do this in house, therefore there is some additional cost and lead time. Please also note that the fabric wraps such as cordura and suede will drift and fray with use. Unfortunately these wraps are not as stretchy and forgiving as the thermoplastic (Kydex).

    Incredible fit with O-Light

    Posted by Mark Star on Mar 20th 2021

    Looked a long time to find a holster manufacturer that would allow my PL-Mini2 from O-Light. I am extremely happy with this holster fit. The only reason I didn't give it 5-stars is the clearance for my grip is a little tight. I have slender fingers and I catch the knuckle of my middle finger on the kydex in front of the grip. It's fairly minor, but after a week of practice on the range, I can see having a beat up knuckle. There is plenty of material such that touching up the shape in that area with the dremel tool should fix the issue.

    OWB Minimalist Drop Holster

    Posted by Daniel F MacKenzie on Jan 25th 2021

    I was very surprised how great the quality is on this holster. Usually, when the prices are this reasonable, the quality isn't top notch. Seems like the stuff that is of top notch quality, you have to pay an arm and a leg for. Not only is this one of the best holsters I currently own now, but it didnt break the back. It is small enough not to get in the way, but large enough to index and reholster while keeping your eyes down range. It shipped surprisingly fast, considering it was a custom order. I would definitely not only recommend this product to anyone seeking a quality duty belt holster, but I would recommend this entire company for whatever your tactical needs are, that they can accomodate.

    Great holster! Love the nice snug fit along with the minimal material. Was able to take out of the package and go straight to dry fire. I will definitely order from Cascadia Concealment again.

    Glock 17 with TLR-1

    Well worth every penny and worth the wait for lead time. The kydex is sturdy and rock solid on my hip. You can really tell the holster maker takes their time and pays attention to detail to make a damn good product.

    I’ve been shopping around for a holster for my FN509 tactical. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. I have ran it through it’s paces and it has worked out great. The quality of the product is excellent. I will be placing another order in the near future.
