With the Golden Globes just awarded and the Oscars right behind the corner, we asked ourselves: Why not give awards to what we love most - our holsters? But as our opinion is quite biased, we decided to give the January Holster Awards to those holsters our fans loved most in 2022.

So, without further ado, let's take a look at the holsters that sold like crazy in 2022, and we'll give the award to the most favorite holster in a number of categories based by carry style. And we'll also tell you what our fans loved about these holsters most.

SPECIAL DEAL - You can now get any of the winning holsters below by end of January at 10% OFF!






Category 1:

Best IWB Holster


Are you a fan of concealed carry? Then get familiar this IWB Clip Holster, which takes the award for the best IWB Holster of 2022. The holster can be used for strong side and appendix carry and here's the main reasons you should get yours:

  • super quick & convenient mounting
  • classy leather with comfortable feel
  • over 480 reviews


Best OWB Holster


If you prefer to open carry, then check out our most popular outside the waist holster of 2022 - the Open Top OWB Holster. Its pancake design allows for easy concealment, but the most important benefits of this OWB leather holster are:

  • easy access & rapid draw
  • double-stitched for increased durability

Category 3:

Best Shoulder Rig


Shoulder holsters will never fall out of style, no matter what the nay sayers say. And this claim is backed up by the immense popularity of this Vertical Roto Shoulder Holster, which takes the prize as far as 2022 shoulder rigs go. And here's why:

  • Roto design you'll just love
  • well-balanced & super comfortable

Best Cross-Draw


Not everyone loves to carry on their dominant side, which is witnessed by how popular this Cross Draw Holster was last year. This holster is an excellent choice for those who spend hours on end sitting and its main positives are:

  • over 1,300 reviews

Category 5:

Best Chest Holster


Even though this Leather Chest Holster was only introduced last year, it rightfully deserves the award for the best chest holster of 2022 as it quickly became a bestseller. Not only is it an impeccable piece of leatherwork, it also offers the following:

  • an ideal hunting companion
  • comes with a mag pouch or ammo loops
  • for over 1,000 handguns

Category 6:

Best SOB Holster


Despite its name, this neat Small of Back Holster deserves a big award too, as it was our fans' absolute favorite as far as middle of the back carry goes. And there's a number of different reasons you should add this model to your holster arsenal:

  • great choice for big guys
  • convenient palm-in design
  • over 700 reviews
