Review: Cuda IWB/OWB Convertible Holster from Simply Rugged

Review: Simply Rugged's Cuda IWB/OWB Convertible Holster
The Cuda holster from Simply Rugged easily converts from an inside-the-waistband holster (IWB) to an outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster.

If you like the classic look and feel of a real leather holster, the Cuda from Simply Rugged may appeal. The Cuda has a nice benefit, too: It's both and inside-the-waistband (IWB) and outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster.

The design is brilliant, mainly because there’s no converting required. The Cuda is a pancake style OWB holster with belt slots, as you would expect, but mounted on the back are two ½-inch wide leather straps. A set of snaps on each strap create belt loops for IWB use—you just flip the straps over the top to make it an IWB holster. There’s no need to add or remove parts, and no reconfiguration is necessary--you just put it on. When the holster is outside of your belt, the straps simply hang behind the body of the Cuda.

You can order the Simply Rugged Cuda in various styles. Prices start at $70.
