Difference between full and trim exotic leather??

Every holster style will be different when it comes to exotic leather trim. Above is a few examples of different holster models with exotic leather trim. Usually on a holster the mouth of the holster area will be in exotic leather trim. On the original holster it would be the extra piece of leather.

keep in mind that all holsters are made to order by hand with no returns, refunds or exchanges.

We are driven to provide the best design solutions and quality products to overcome the issues that plague traditional handbags and backpacks. Traditional bags increase shoulder and back pain, lack durability, don’t provide easy access to items, use less quality materials, and don’t fit securely against your body.

Maximum Comfort and Weight Distribution

A bag meant to keep you comfortable, organized, and hands-free, the UKOALA BAG is the most comfortable bag you’ll ever wear. With a design that’s engineered to provide the best weight distribution to your body, you almost forget that you’re wearing it! The bag will not swing and dangle when you move, and you no longer have to deal with a bag that slips off your shoulder or weighs you down. The UKOALA BAG also keeps all your items organized and within easy reach.

Award Winning

Our unique and patented design was awarded the Emerging Designer Showcase Buyer’s Choice Award at the Atlanta Apparel Mart. We are constantly striving to ensure our customers receive the highest quality products, attention to detail, and service they deserve.

Great Organization and Amazing Carrying Capacity

The design incorporates functional pockets in layers to keep all your essentials highly organized. It’s like your own personal items tool bag with multiple organizing pockets. All of your valuable belongings, including your wallet, phone, tablet, ID, passport, cash and credit cards are organized and easily accessible.



Flexibility To Wear As Needed

The UKOALA BAG has multiple flexible belts giving you the option to wear the bag on your waist as a hip bag, fanny bag, leg bag, waist bag, thigh bag, or holster bag. Your bag can also be worn as a messenger bag or shoulder bag. When your bag is strapped securely to your thigh, it acts as a deterrent against theft and minimizes the risk of street robbery.

Alternate Practical Uses for Leg Straps

Examples of practical leg strap usage are shown below including securing your bag to your leg, hanging articles of clothing, attaching coats and wraps securely to the body.

Authentic Materials

UKOALA BAGS are available in many different materials including eco-friendly 100% cotton canvas, high-quality leather, synthetic leather and water-resistant nylon fabrics. Different color and material combinations are available to satisfy individual needs and personal expression.

Attention to Details with a Unique Edgy Look

We pay great attention to the details. Our heavy-duty, vintage-styled smoking buckles and hardware will never go out of style. With our special production method, each bag passes up to 45 production processes. UKOALA BAGS are hand-sewn and produced to ensure maximum quality and comfort. The bags go through one of two types of washes. The canvas bags are enzyme-washed to achieve a unique vintage look and rid the bag of any chemical residue. We also developed an exclusive washing process for our leather bags to achieve chemical free leather with a satisfyingly rich and soft touch.

Durable, Recyclable, Eco-friendly

We use high-quality materials, including heavy duty vintage-style buckles

Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) — MTR Custom Leather aka-A-6 Deluxe Full-Size Pancake Holster 

Great Option for Large frame weapons. The open top design offers a swift and easy draw with great cosmetic appearance with the detailed molding. Providing 100% secure retention of the weapon. Features:   Premium Grade A bullhide Made in USA Full slide/barrel coverage Butt-forward cant allows effective concealment Traditional pancake design for best concealment and wrapping/contouring the body Fits belts up to 1 3/4″ single layer or nylon belts

The C-2 Belt Slide Master Carry is very similar to our A-6 Deluxe Full-Size Pancake Holster. They both have the re-enforced mouth. You might ask what is a re-enforce mouth on a holster. This is located at the opening of the holster where you would insert the weapon. This can become one of the weaker parts on a holster, due to drawing and inserting the weapon with force many times. The mouth of the holster can become weak from turning, twisting and leaning towards the weapon and holster with your body. This causes stretching on the mouth of the holster because it’s Constance pressure on the handle of the weapon with your body (hip, back, muffin top).

The re-enforce mouthpiece on the holster is the little sewn triangle piece of leather on the front of the holster located at the trigger guard and slide of the weapon near the top of the weapon towards the handle. 



  • Premium Grade A bullhide

  • Made in USA

  • Full slide/barrel coverage

  • Butt-forward cant allows effective concealment

  • Traditional pancake design for best concealment and wrapping/contouring the body

  • Fits belts up to 1 3/4″ single layer or nylon belts

  • Can be made for optics, rmr red dots, lasers/light attachments, threaded barrels, compensators and more.
  • Hand molded to each weapon to the exact frame of weapon

You design we build it. All the way up the color stitching.

The Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) is a very simple design and is made with a drop through configuration. This allows multiple barrel lengths to work with this product without having multiple holsters. Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) is intended for outside

the waistband (OWB) carry. The leather belt slots on the Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2)can fit up to 1-1/2 gunbelt(2 layer) or 1-3/4 regular belt (1 layer). The C-2 Holster fits very snug to the waist.

Brown Elephant Trim on bullhide black leather

Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) is easy for re-holstering in one single motion. The Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) is equipped with heavy duty nylon stitching to help reduce any tearing or dry rotting of the stitches.

Each Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) holster is hand molded to each weapon of choice, ensuring a nice tight glove fit. The Belt Slide Master Carry (C-2) is constructed to hold heavy weight weapons by distributing the weight of the weapon with 2 parallel belt slots on either side of the weapon.

New Service for your MTR Custom Leather Holster- Tighter Retention

New Service for your MTR Custom Leather Holster- Tighter Retention.

Have you got a holster that has become loose and stretched out? 

MTR Custom Leather has got you!

Have you got a holster that has become loose and stretched out? 

MTR Custom Leather has got you!

First you need to understand how leather changes. As it is a skin, it will stretch under pressure, climate, use/wear and reform. To a certain extent it will shape to your weapon. But over time after wearing the holster and pulling and drawing and the weight of the weapon sagging into the leather daily or weekly causes a lot of stress on the natural leather grains and fibers constantly breaking them down. Similar to our muscles, joints and tendons in our body, the more you use them they are to break down and tear.

There are ways to prevent the stretching process from happening so fast, by applying waxes to reseal the leather fibers and to keep them strong and durable with each use.


After you checkout and pay for your service to have your holster tighten up.

1-Send the holster back to MTR Custom Leather at:

MTR Custom Leather, LLC-5052 Doc Hayworth Rd, Ramseur, NC 27316

2-Put a note in the box, with your order number and email

3-Once MTR receives the holster(s), MTR will inform by email

4-Give MTRCL 3-4 business days to repair the holster. MTRCL will send you tracking by email once the order has been shipped.

What we do?

MTR Custom Leather will take the leather holster and remold the leather around the weapon to get the shape back into the holster. This will allow MTR to see the areas where the holster has stretched around the weapon. Then MTR Custom Leather will sew another line of stitching around the loose areas of the holster around the weapon to secure the tight remold fitment of the weapon in the holster. Next, MTRCL will rewax and seal the leather fibers. Buff the wax deep into the grains. Then add a topcoat of flexible seal/wax to the finish product.

End Results:

The retention will be similar to the same retention as when you first received the holster years ago.


This process may need to be repeated over time as more use of the holster occurs. Lifetime of the holster’s retention is determined by the use the holster. Similar to windshield wipers.

MTR Custom Leather has got holsters for the NEW Sig Sauer P365-380

The P365-380 offers all the same features as America’s #1 selling micro-compact pistol, now in the softer shooting 380 caliber resulting in easier handling and less felt recoil.

The long-awaited P365 chambered in 380 is finally here, creating a new, softer shooting, easier handling micro-compact option for everyday carry. It uses the same grip module and fire control unit as the popular 9mm version with a lightened slide and barrel making it completely compatible with all existing P365 holsters.  With a Nitron® finished stainless slide, DLC barrel, and completely redesigned two-piece captured guide rod, the P365-380 is the most durable 380 micro-compact pistol on the market.  Rigorously tested at SIG SAUER, the P365-380 was designed for all shooters, especially those with smaller hands and those who find the manipulation and recoil management of 9mm caliber pistols challenging.

Each P365-380 comes standard with SIGLITE® night sights for effective sight acquisition in all lighting conditions.  The P365-380 slide includes an optic cut compatible with the ROMEOZero Elite or any optic with the same footprint.  Additionally, the dovetailed front and rear sights allow for effective co-witnessing in the proper configuration.  Because the P365-380 shares the same fire control unit and grip module as all standard P365s it is compatible with all of the same accessories, such as flat triggers, FOXTROT lights, XSeries grip modules, etc.  Each pistol includes (2) 10rd magazines (one flush fit and one extended) and a magazine loader standard. The P365-380 is the ultimate micro-compact pistol offering less recoil, less racking force, and less compromise in an everyday carry pistol. 

  • Nitron® finished optic-ready slide
  • Shared FCU and grip module with P365 9mm
  • Less recoil and reduced racking force
  • Accessory rail
  • (2) 10rd magazines w/ mag loader

** PLEASE NOTE ** The P365-380 fits all standard P365 holsters.
