THE ORION HOLSTER
The Professional’s Choice
The hallmark of a serious shooter comes from the work they put in ensuring their gear and skills function at top level. Similarly, we at Dark Star Gear spare no effort in engineering the finest concealment holsters on the market. Its sophistication and dependability is what makes the Dark Star Gear Orion Holster the superlative choice for both serious concealed carriers and low visibility professionals alike.
Elegant Yet Robust
The Orion Holster’s shape is based on our take of proven, first-principles concealment design. As each holster is compression or vacuum formed from Kydex or Boltaron, it will not only stand up to the rigors of every day concealed carry but also the worst-case defensive entanglement scenario. Its rigid construction allows handguns to be safely re-holstered from any position at any time.
Designed with Versatility
The Orion works as an Inside-The-Waistband (IWB) holster, but installing a Dark Wing will turn it into an Appendix Inside-The-Waistband (AIWB) holster. A variety of different belt attachments like industry standard Biothane pull-the-dot soft loops, the Discreet Carry Concepts HLR 1.5” Mod Universal 4 clips, or the DSG Metal Spring Clip are all compatible with the Orion, among many others. The body-facing side of the holster is smoothed and free from protrusions to maximize comfort, adjustability, and customization. Pads or wedges can be easily added as needed to improve wearers’ individual concealment capabilities. This holster can also be paired with the PHLster Enigma Concealment System, using the Fixed Retention Kit.
A Holster With Options
Handgun models from major manufacturers like Glock, SIG, Smith & Wesson, Beretta, Polymer 80, HK, and Walther are compatible with the Orion Holster. This holster can be purchased either cut for a sweat shield or cut for slide mounted red dot sights. Different colors or patterns are also available for this holster.

I bought this holster on a whim after seeing the good troll’s discount code for Dark Star Gear. I had heard about the company for years from people with opinions I respected, but I had somehow never gotten one for myself. I am forever grateful for finally choosing to purchase one, out of the 15 or so quality holsters I have, this may be my favorite. My occupation isn’t very sexy, I’m a college student and stay at home Dad. However, with that role I am forever bending, squatting, carrying, or a million other things in very inconvenient positions to take care of my two small sons. This holster makes carrying the LTT through all of that not just bearable, but easy. I don’t have to adjust it, it doesn’t drive into my leg making me neglect to slide down a slide meant for children, it allows me to sit on the floor comfortably, and holds the gun securely through all activities, including cartwheels. That’s something I can’t really say about most of my other holsters.
In use at the range the holster seems to almost push the gun into my hands on the draw, and when I go to holster it grabs securely and easily. The Dark Wing also makes concealing a full-size pistol in a T-shirt quite easy. I will never tell anyone that one company or one holster will be the perfect choice for everyone, but for me this is as close to perfection that I have found. So much so that I just placed an order for an Orion for my G17, and of course it will be in the Toxic Green Twill color.
