Light Bearing (OWB)

(61 reviews) Write a Review

The Light Bearing OWB holster is a one piece wrapped design that allows the holster to sit close to the body minimizing the overall footprint of your holster and gun. This model comes standard with adjustable retention and a slightly easier reholstering experience by having a lower front cut to the side opposite the body. The built in light channel will provide a smooth and secure draw without damaging expensive light attachments over time. 

Many people prefer to use this model for strong side carry and it is very popular for duty and battle belt applications. For duty and battle belt use, select "Tek-Lok Drop/Offset" within the mounting options.

While this model does ride close to the body, for ultimate concealment, check out the Traditional Concealment Light Bearing OWB here.

This holster is also available in the QUICK SHIP section of our store for a limited selection of gun models. QUICK SHIP holsters come in 4 colors (black, brown, tan and grey) with a matte edge finish and ship within 2 business days. Click here to see if your gun model is available for QUICK SHIP.

    OWB Light bearing M&P 2.0 3.6"/ TLR-7A

    Posted by Nicholas Bristow on Jul 30th 2020

    Outstanding fit and finish, colors and hardware exact as ordered. Drops in like a glove and tensioned just right out of the box. Would give a 4.7... there is about 2 mm of kydex just covering enough of the mag release, that if its torqued towards the body will eject the magazine. Sitting down can potentially spit out the magazine. Super easy fix, but the mold needs a tiny bit shaved off around the magazine release for this gun combo. Complimentary mag carrier also top notch. Billy personally answered 2 questions before I placed my order, within an hour of e mailing them.

    Custom Holster for H&K USP45

    Posted by Don on Jul 15th 2020

    I’ve had my holster for about a year now and it has held up to some pretty extreme use. I recommend Huckleberry without hesitation and will use them again. From memory, these guys took the time to confirm my exact build with the laser that had been added to my Tactical USP 45. The fit and finish is perfect.

    Excellent holster, fit is tight and snug. Very positive click-lock on the way in and smooth draw on the way out. The TLR-7a fits the TLR-7 dropdown, as well. Excellent and quick response to my questions via email -- I'll definitely be ordering from Huckleberry again!

    G20 / Gen4 / Threaded Barrel / TLR-8 Light

    Posted by David Emerson on Jun 1st 2020

    Needed a holster for my backpacking gun - something light, durable, no-fuss, and able to clip on to whatever I'm wearing (because no, I don't backpack in a gun belt, and sometimes I even get to wear swim trunks, but still don't want a grizzly on my case!). I was going to just DIY, since my requirements aren't all that sophisticated, but I decided against it when I saw the Huckleberry had a model which would fit my configuration. I'm very, very glad I didn't - there's no way my efforts would come out so professionally. Really a top-notch job they did, and perfect for my needs.

    full size 1911 with light

    Posted by Bruce Toth on May 25th 2020

    This is by far one of the best holsters i have gotten. Most of my pistols are custom so the holster i usually get need some sort of modification to make them work correctly. Not so with this one. It fits like a glove. The quality is second to none. The service was outstanding. I know there is always a wait when i order one of my holsters but this was a lot faster than most of my others. Highly recommend Huckleberry Tactical...

    Owb glock 19 with light

    It's way better than my blackhawk but only my second. I'll stick with it till it breaks, but great build all in all.

    Great fit and clip, color could be better

    Posted by Dante on Mar 11th 2020

    I was pleased with the customer service, price point, and execution at Huckleberry Tactical. Searching for a holster that can accommodate a handgun with a light is not always the easiest. The Light Bearing OWB holster held my S&W M&P full size with a Streamlight TLR-3 firmly and comfortably. The Tek-lok was also a great option along with a matching magazine carrier. The only thing I wish was improved was the color. I ordered the Kryptek Typhon expecting it to be black/grey but it has a noticeable bluish-green tint. I would still recommend, just maybe don't get too crazy with your colors.
