Simply Rugged uses full grain cowhide from Hermann Oak to build our leather holsters and leather accessories. The thread we use is a heavy duty nylon it won’t rot over time. Our leather holsters are hand molded around each type of firearm to provide a snug fit and hold the gun in place whether you are riding horse back, on your ATV, snow machine, fly fishing or hiking on a trail through the woods. Our leather holsters will surpass the “One G test” of combat competition. In other words, you can wear the leather holster, fall off your horse, out of a canoe, or just stumble in the brush and the pistol will stay in place.
