Kaluban Cloak is what its called and there are only 3 differences between this and RCS. Raven's are a little more refined on the inside of the holster, the loops are a bit bulky on this and slimmer on the RCS, and this ships in two weeks while RCS takes a eternity. Ok that's enough RCS bashing from me, lol. I mentioned the inside being a little more refined in the RCS but the retention on this is great, I'd give RCS the nod above all kydex for retention because they are the only Kydex makers that I've seen make certain holster for different positions of the safety lever. This holster has a small space about a half inch wide and as long as the saftey lever on the HK45c so you can carry the HK45c with safety on or off or even LEM it doesn't matter. I opted for the Carbon Fiber pattern and I have to say, if I can do it over again I'd probably just go with Desert Tan or black. It's not ugly it just looks EXACTLY like Carbon Fiber and I thought maybe it would be a little darker. Well I'd like to talk about this more but I gotta split. Ask any questions you want and when I get back tonight I'll answer them. Thanks for looking.

That looks pretty nice. Does it 'give up the gun' on the draw nicely? One thing I'm curious about: How do you like the belt loops? I've been making a few holsters for myself and my co-workers (just messing around), and I'm still not sold on how I'm making my belt loops. It seems that the design on your holster might be a little more comfortable than what I came up with, but the way I have them really tucks the gun in tight.





I guess I'll just have to make a set like your holster and see how I like it. Good looking holster, OP. Does the carbon fiber have any 'depth' to it?

I just won an shtf holster for my 45c the other day. Waiting for it to come in.

Ya, you could go from outside to IWB with just a different clip--I've done a couple like that.. The one pictured is for a CZ Shadow, but I've made one for my P30L. Still not sure about the belt loops--I think I'll try some like the OP has.

Hi good photos; would that be a holster with clip changes; go from iwb to owb ? It looks like it would fit the hkp30s also. John

First that CZ looks beautiful and I now want one. Secondly it looks like you got a winner there, I don't know much about making a holster but that looks like it would hug the gun closer to the body since the loops are offset instead of acting as spacing between the body and the holster like my loops.

As far as my holster goes it gives up the gun just fine, my leather Crossbreed belt is wearing out (3 years old) so sometimes on the draw my belt and pants get pulled up a little but I think that will be remedied with a new belt. I really like how your loops and mag holder are all one peice, or atleast looks that way.

Ya, I had no desire for a CZ until my buddy dropped it off for me to make the holster. Within a few minutes of fondling it, I was browsing the internet looking for a deal on a Shadow. It fits the hand really well--almost like a steel framed P30.

And thanks for the kind comments on my holsters!
