Only Use High-Quality American Leather Colt Holsters

Professionals practicing concealed carry know what it’s like to use a badly made holster. They shift when you walk, make noise all the time, or worse, don’t even fit the form of your firearm properly.

Any one of these issues can be a problem. If your Colt holster moves around, you’ll have to readjust all the time, causing your concealed carry to be less well hidden. The same is true loud firearm holders. But a poorly made firearm holster can actually lead to serious injury — or even worse.


You know you need the best, and we do, too. At Palmetto Leather Works, we take the time to hand make every leather holster to fit your Colt Commander Series IWB firearm for years to come. Whether it’s a Colt Impact 1911 or something else, we guarantee you won’t have to worry about a shifting, noisy, or unsafe holster ever again.

We combine time-tested leather-making techniques with modern manufacturing technology to craft the best Colt leather holster every time. Since each one is fully hand-made and hand-fitted by our local leatherworkers, we can ensure that you are always receiving the perfect fit. Never use a concealed carry without a form-fitted Colt holster from Palmetto Leather Works. Your life might just depend on it.

Colt Leather Holsters Made for Your Personal Firearm

Some might think that all concealed carry holsters are made the same, or that any old holder will do just as well as any other for their Colt firearm. Others may worry that they just won’t be able to find an IWB holster that fits and works exactly for their needs.

Here are just a few of the considerations of professional concealed carry holsters:

  • Holster not being comfortable for long shifts

  • Noisy holster making loud sounds in quiet areas

  • A loose-fitting firearm holster shifting around on the hip

  • Poorly made IWB holsters scraping the body and being visible

  • Unsafe Colt 1911 holsters causing accidental discharge


With custom-made leather holsters for Colt firearms from Palmetto Leather Works, you can stop worrying about all these issues, and get back to doing the work you enjoy with the safety and confidence you expect.
