A friend of a friend who is with a Malaysian law enforcement agency recently asked me where he can get a Glock 17 holster (kydex) made. Well, if anyone in Malaysia that owns and carries a firearm legally wants a custom made holster, I would simply recommend them to Peter of 362 Custom Kydex. I called Peter a few days ago and he agreed to show me the works of a  Glock 17 IWB holster he is making for a customer.

If you own and carry a firearm (legally!) in Malaysia, you would want a proper holster made to suit your needs and preference. Holsters made of kydex are durable, light, impervious to water/ sweat and offers levels of customization not possible with other materials like leather. An IWB (Inside Waist Band) like this Glock 17 holster is popular as it can be carried in different positions (I.e appendix carry, strong side or cross-draw). The holster can be made with a belt clip for 1.5 inch or 1.75 inch belts. The solid and securely installed belt clips mounts to the belt of the wearer and does not move, making it rigid and unlikely to wiggle around when worn. This is the advantage of such holster as it keeps the gun tight to the body for maximum concealment with almost no printing of the firearm (people can’t see the shape of whats underneath your clothing).

Some firearm owners are contended with just the standard holster. But think about it, 362 Custom Kydex can make a custom holsters that fits to your choice of color and hardware (all of which are imported from the USA). Many different color options are available and users can adjust the retention (tighter or looser) to their liking.

The firearm can then be holstered easily with a slight click as it sits in the holster. Note also that unlike leather holster that can smell and (possibly) rot in our tropical hot and humid environment, holsters made of Kydex material are not sensitive to moisture. Whats more…362 Custom Kydex can configure your holster’s sweat guard to different heights too! Full, mid or no sweat guard helps prevent the rear of the firearm slide from rubbing against your skin. Name your choice and preferences and 362 Custom Kydex will make it for you!

So, if a custom configured, made to fit kydex holster for your firearm like a Glock 17 is what you are looking for, I think you cannot go wrong with 362 Custom Kydex. 362 Custom Kydex has the experience, passion and personal interest in firearms, which I think makes him the best kydex firearm holster maker in Malaysia.
