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.

Green Stitching with large laser/light attachment and enclosed end (helps protect laser/light and barrel, keeps dust, debris from entering)

Only the best top grain leather is used for this holster. You can count on this holster securing your weapon in place. 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.

FAQ about Urban Utility Bags and Ukoala Bags – UUB-MTR CUSTOM LEATHER-QUESTIONS/ANWSERS 

FAQ about Urban Utility Bags and Ukoala Bags – UUB-MTR CUSTOM LEATHER-QUESTIONS/ANWSERS

Questions and answers

  1. Are all bags suitable for concealed carry?

Yes, for our Ukoala line. The main compartment has a sewn-in Velcro® patch to attach an optional custom Kydex holster (adjustable to the position that best fits your quick draw access). Compact bags hold only .380 or bodyguard size firearms with limited space for other items, so we do recommend the standard or expanded sizes for concealed carry customers.

  1. What size Ukoala Bag fits my type of gun?
It depends on the size of your weapon. Measure your gun and make your selection based on the main compartment measurements below, which is our recommended location to hold a firearm. The compact size bag will hold only a .380 or bodyguard firearm with limited room for other large items, so keep that in mind when choosing.
Main Compartment Measurements
Compact (A SKUS): 5” x 8” x 1.75”,    Standard (B SKUS): 6.0” x 9” x 1.75”
                Expanded (C SKUS): 6.5” x 9.5”x 1.75”
  1. Do I need extra straps for the Backpack style?
Not necessarily. Many customers find that, when fully extended and placed through the loop on the back of our bag, the existing waist belt works just fine. If you do need additional length, then the optional extension piece should be ordered. Another option is to order a second waist belt and an extension piece and keep them configured for backpack use, then simply swap out the existing waist belt (for everyday use) for the one for backpack use.  Watch the video
  1. Can I get a custom bag or custom color?

Not at this time, but we appreciate your suggestions! We are working on some new styles and colors that we hope to introduce by late Spring of 2022.

  1. How do I treat my wax canvas bag for outdoor weather use if it has leather on it?
You can treat your wax canvas bag as needed by “re-waxing”:  Starting with a clean, dry bag, heat up the surface of the canvas with a blow dryer. Spread the wax in broad, even strokes, moving back and forth to create friction on the bag. It will warm up, getting progressively easier to spread. More details will be available on our Youtube  channel.
  1. What is the best method for a sticky zipper?

Occasionally, zippers will become stuck.  If so, apply unscented chapstick or wax to the zipper teeth, then pull the zipper head back and forth a few times until it glides smoothly. We also suggest using this method when you first receive your bag to create a smooth zip which will extend the life of your zipper.

  1. When can I expect to receive my bag after I place my order?

For items in stock, bags usually arrive in 5 to 7 business days. Our standard and preferred shipping method is USPS Priority mail; non-standard methods may affect the arrival date. Orders placed after 1 PM EST are considered as placed the next business day.

  1. Are your bags waterproof?
Our bags are water resistant but not waterproof. We recommend bags made from durable nylon or waxed canvas materials for rugged outdoor use. The least durable material is cotton canvas.
  1. Where can I try bags on? I need to touch, see, and feel it before I purchase it
Right now your best option is to check for a retailer in your area. Although all styles and colors may not be stocked, you’ll get a good idea of which size bag best fits your body and your carry needs. You can also purchase our bags online.  If you like it, keep it.  If not, you can return the bag in brand new condition within 30 days of purchase for a 100% refund.
  1. How do I adjust the leg or waist straps?

All of our straps are adjustable. The leg strap extends from 10-22″ and fits a thigh up to 33″. The standard waist belt extends from 18-47″, and the extension piece 12-19″. When an extension piece is added to a waist belt, it will fit waist sizes to 66″. If you need a shorter length, cut the strap shorter and sew the end to prevent unraveling.  Another option is to work with a seamstress or shoe shop to fit the length to meet your needs.   Watch the video

  1. Where can I buy another leg strap or waist belt?

Both items, as well as our optional extension piece, are available online.  Be sure to check the hardware color and order the one that matches your bag.  If you have difficulty finding your match, contact

  1. How will I know when an out of stock item becomes available?

If we are out of stock online, you can always sign up for announcements that will let you know when new inventory is arriving. We also announce availability of our most popular bags on our FaceBook page, so be sure to check there each day for inventory and other important updates or announcements.

  1. Will more colors be coming?
We do release limited edition colors, and are working on some new ones for our Spring 2022 line. Based on customer feedback, we are also working on a vegan prototype which we hope to add to our product line in 2022. Be sure to look for these online.
We can work with organizations placing high quantity orders to incorporate custom colors and logos on our bags.


  1. How can I find out if you will be a vendor at a trade show or event?
We love to share our Ukoala Bag experience at shows and events.  Be sure to check our schedule online or on our FACEBOOK page.  If don’t see a show you’re interested in, please email us. We often have dealers that will be in your area.


  1. What size bag is best for me?
It depends your height, weight, and how you intend to use your bag. The compact size was designed for customers 5’3″ or less, but is not the best choice for concealed carry. If you plan on carrying everyday items and a firearm in your bag, choose the standard or expanded size bag. Small ipads will only fit in the back compartment of our expanded bags. Be sure to check out our size and usage suggestions in the product descriptions.

  1. What are the differences in the materials you use for your bags?

We use five types of materials:

    1. Cotton Canvas: soft to touch (Wrangler line)
    2. Wax Canvas: more durable and water resistant (Yeti line)
    3. Nylon: durable and water resistant (Double TroublePhoenix lines)
    4. Heavy Duty Ballistic Nylon: for rugged use (KodiakYukon lines)
    5. Leather: high quality and soft to touch (Cowboy line)
  1. How can I find the status of out my order?

Once your package ships, you will receive an email with your order tracking number. You can also log into your UUB online account for this information.  If you are having issues locating your tracking number, please contact

  1. Can I wash my bag?

Yes, you can use a mild dish detergent and water to hand wash any bag except the leather Cowboy. Be certain to hang your bag after washing and allow it to completely air dry.

   19.  Will your bag work for a left-handed person?

Yes, our bags are interchangeable. See the image below as an example.

20.  My tracking number says my bag was delivered but I didn’t receive it. What should I do?

Once we fulfill your order and hand it off to a carrier, the burden of proof shifts to that carrier. Contact your local post office to settle non-delivery issues. We have an excellent track record with the USPS!


21. What is the difference between the standard Kodiak and the expanded Yeti?

The main differences are the pocket styles and size.  Watch the video


22. What is the difference between the Phoenix standard and Compact sizes?

The main differences are the pocket styles and size.  Watch the video
