Benefits of a Kydex Gun Holster

Tactical Measure is one of the leading creators of Kydex gun holsters, and we take pride in that! Our high-quality kydex holsters are individually pressed and handmade to your specifications. If you’re currently shopping for a new holster for your gun, chances are that you’ll come across the tough decision of choosing between leather or kydex — the two most commonly used materials when creating holsters. In today’s blog, the team at Tactical Measure is going to cover a few of the benefits to choosing a kydex holster. Let’s dive in.

What is Kydex?

One of the first things that people want to know when determining which material is a better fit for them is what kydex is in the first place. This material is plastic-like and was originally designed to be used for the interior of aircraft. It’s ability to be molded is what makes it such a fantastic material option for creating gun holsters. This material is also extremely durable, which is why so many first-responder and military agencies opt for kydex holsters. While leather definitely has an old-timey feel to it, kydex is the material you’ll be glad you invested in!

Perfect Fit

Kydex holsters are known for providing the perfect fit that so many are looking for when investing in a new holster.  Because Kydex is a thin, plastic material, it can be heated up and molded around the gun to create the perfect fit. This makes it easy for us to create various holsters that work with every gun on the market. So, if you’re having a tough time finding a holster for your gun or you’re fully aware that they don’t make holsters for that particular gun, a custom kydex holster is exactly what you want.


As we mentioned earlier, kydex is an incredibly durable material which makes it a fantastic option for gun holsters that are being worn regularly or are used for tactical work. Aside from that, the durability of this material protects your gun when it’s on your person. Both of these factors are reasons that we love kydex and use it for our custom gun holsters.


When you’re carrying your gun on your person, you want to know that it is secure in your holster. Something that you can count on with a custom kydex holster is that your gun will be secure the entire time that you’re wearing it. Regardless of how much you’re moving or if you hold the holster upside down, the gun will remain in place. This is another selling point for agencies who carry a gun on their person that may need to move around while on the job.
