One legend meets another. Carl Collins and Exodus Gunleather have been making my holsters for years. So, Carl was not only the right choice - he was the only choice - to make me a holster for my HK45C that gives a tip of the hat to my favorite TV cowboy hero: Paladin, from Have Gun - Will Travel. Thanks to Carl, Paladin rides again.

Got my holster today. This is hands down the finest holster I have ever seen. The kimber fits like a glove. I will for sure be a returning customer. Well worth the wait. Thanks y'all!

I purchased my first holster from Exodus Gunleather after they came highly recommended by a number of peers, all of whom had great experiences with them and their products.  I decided on a full coverage natural ring lizard for myself and ended up purchasing a high grain burgundy for a friend.  Not only are these products incredibly well-made and aesthetically pleasing, they are designed and made to be a high-functioning piece of equipment.  I would recommend their product to any passionate shooter with an appreciation for craftsmanship and utility.

I just received my belt, holster and double magazine pouch. I have never been more pleased with a product in my life. The craftsmanship and quality of the leather and stitching are unsurpassed. The fit is impressive. I have had rigs made from most of your "competitors" and I can say that in over thirty-five years of carrying concealed weapons I have never owned a higher quality rig. Your personal attention and top shelf customer service also must not go unmentioned.You and your company have made me a well satisfied and lifetime loyal fan.

I want to thank you for the exceptional craftsmanship that you put into the custom made holster that I purchased from you. I own many holsters from several different Makers. All of them are custom made from natural hide. The attention to detail and beautiful finish that you hand crafted to this horsehide and beaver tail is unprecedented. This is the best workmanship I have ever seen.

Your willingness to purchase a new form mold, combining the shape of my handgun with my aftermarket laser site is a fine statement of you character and customer service. I am most appreciative. Job well done!?

My friends will see your fine workmanship and I will encourage them to channel their gun leather purchases your way.

Received my ESS holster yesterday, and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy it. Not only did it arrive in what I considered to be record time (3 days), but once I holstered my .45 I knew it had found a new home. The fit and finish were beyond my expectations, and after a slight adjustment to the carry angle, I found it to be all I could ask for.
Great looking and comfortable. It's a shame to wear it concealed. Thanks for a great holster at a fair price. Makes me want to by a new pistol just so I can order another holster!

I got the holster this weekend. It fits perfectly and looks even better. I know I've said it before, but this is easily my new favorite. The gator has a completely different feel from the lizard.

Carl, my holsters and mag pouches arrived today. My friend you've outdone yourself. These are works of art!

Thank you so much

I have to be Honest (it's the only way I know), I was kind of doubting or questioning myself on spending 500 on a rig (splurging on myself). Got home today from a short trip and your pkg was waiting. What a surprise! I have never saw anything like this. "Outstanding" doesn't do it justice. As I posted on FB, you are a Phenomenal Craftsman. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

Thank you so much.  The belt arrived today.  It, like the holster and mag carrier, are beautiful.  The patterns in the horse hide just add to the appearance. The fit and quality are better than any work I've seen. Your honesty about your time line and concern about customer satisfaction went beyond what I expected.  I would recommend your work to anyone and look forward to doing more business with you.

You two over there at Exodus Gunleather do some nice work…**** holster, mag pouch and belt is OUTSTANDING!!! … She whispered in my ear that she forgot she was packing! Yep the whole rig, it was like it wasn’t even there… She has really never been comfortable with any of the holsters she has tried off the shelf. With this one, the print is totally one off, the fit is superb, and the quality is some of the best I have ever seen. Thank you both for you time and talent.

Thank you again for such an awesome holster. I knew from the beginning I was dealing with a couple who is passionate about guns, 1911’s, quality leather, and most of all, customer service. You guys ROCK!!!

It’s quite refreshing when as a customer, you can tell that the person you are dealing with really cares about making a product that you are completely satisfied with as opposed to the majority who seem only concerned with closing a sale.

Carl, I just wanted you to see a picture of my new Ed Brown…in your EDC, double mag carrier, and belt. The gun and rig go together perfectly. Thought you deserved to see it. Thanks again for everything.

Carl, Did you ever put a wide grin on my face. Do you wear this holster or is it for a glass display case? That is THE BEST holster I have ever seen. I’m going to have to have a new Brooks Bros. or Armani suit to do that holster justice. You and Amy are at the TOP of your game…I know no one could do it better.

Carl you might not want to sell this holster…and if you want it back let me know. But right now I have an Ed Brown Centennial in the holster. On second thought, it is now a used holster so you can’t have it back. Thanks, thanks and thanks to you and Amy.

Hey guys. The holster and belt combo is awesome. I forget that I’m even wearing it because the weight just disappears. I would have never believed the difference quality gun leather makes. This definitely won’t be my only Exodus order.

Exodus Gunleather made a believer out of me when it comes to a quality made, sturdy holster and “gun belt”. I was from the school that as long as I cinched it up tight enough it would hold my pistol where I wanted it and do so comfortably. I was wrong. No belt or holster I had before theirs can compare.

Carl was eager to make something that I would be proud of and wear for years to come. He and Amy succeeded. I HIGHLY recommend Exodus Gunleather and will do so every chance I get in the future.
