Kydex is a synthetic thermoplastic PVC material that has been introduced to the market and is rapidly gaining popularity. Its strengths are rigidity, formability, chemical resistance and good interior finish rating. It can be thermoformed, post formed, brake formed and laminated. The material offers great retention, mainly because the temperature-molded plastic creates a slot in which the trigger guard can slide. Kydex holsters are resistant to temperature changes, which means that they don’t shrink or expand and thus don’t change the ability to retain the weapon. Kydex holsters are water resistant, sweat resistant, and wear resistant. You don’t have to ‘break – in’ the holster, once it’s taken from the package it can be used immediately. The draw is quiet and easy and can be done with one hand, the holster remains stiff so the weapon can be drawn and holstered without effort. When the holster is used and starts to show signs of wear it can be easily re-fit via the retention screws.
Injection molded polymer holsters are very similar to kydex holsters, yet they have their own category. The material is similar and the difference is that the holster is made by injecting the polymer into a mold and not by thermoforming. Polymer holsters are often blended with various fibers such as carbon, nylon etc. The main upside, material-wise, is that polymer holsters can be mass-produced for common weapon types because once the mold has been created it can be used en masse and thus be more available to the customer, while still having the benefits of any premium plastic type holster.
