In Greek mythology, Ares is the god of war, and represents strength during battle. He is one of the Twelve Olympians, and the son of Zeus and Hera. When Ares went to war, he was followed by his companions, Deimos (terror) and Phobos (fear).
The Ares is our standard Outside the Waistband (OWB) handgun holster, and is so named because of its ability to retain its strength and rigidity during battle. It's designed to take an incredible beating, yet still look brand new.
The Ares is designed to be worn in the 3 or 4 o'clock position - the holster is attached to your belt and worn on the outside of your pants. This holster is ideal for open carry or at the shooting range.
It comes with adjustable retention to ensure it has the exact amount of retention you need. Unlike ballistic nylon or leather holsters, each of our handcrafted holsters is molded to fit a specific handgun model; your gun will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for that model.
This holster is made from two separate pieces of Kydex, fastened together with quality eyelets and rubber spacers. The front piece of the holster can be customized in your choice of 33 different colors or patterns; the back piece can be customized in your choice of 16 solid colors – click here to view color options.
The Ares comes with your choice of belt hardware: 1.5” belt loops, 1.75" belt loops, 1.5” pancake wings or malice clips.
Both the 1.5” and 1.75" belt loops, and the 1.5” pancake wings, securely fasten the holster to your belt --simply feed your belt through the loops/wings on the holster. The holster can only be removed by removing your belt. The major differences between the belt loops and the pancake wings are that the loops are 3-D and protrude off the back of the holster, while the wings are flatter and hug the holster closer to the body. Most belts will fit through either style of 1.5-inch belt hardware.
The malice clips are a great option for attaching your holster to Molle webbing found on plate carriers or battle belts.
If you're not sure which size belt hardware you need, or which style of belt hardware suits you best, you can always head over to our Extra Hardware section to purchase the other belt hardware options. The belt hardware on this holster can easily be swapped by simply removing the screws that keep the belt hardware in place.

Overall great Holster, only thing is the 1.5 mount attachments are hard to feed through a really stiff Gunbelt.

I'm very happy with my recent purchase; I ordered 2 holsters and two magazine carriers. All items exceeded the quality of any kydex holster in my area; not to mention they're are customized. I highly recommend the purchase, it's worth the wait when it comes to QUALITY for your hard earned money. @frankavellirizzo

I've purchased 5 holsters from Alpha (some where gifts to family members in law enforcement) In my opinion they are outstanding holsters. Great retention and quality.

This is a high quality, well made, reasonably priced holster produced by people who obviously take pride in their work. Best of all, it's made right here in Pittsburgh!!! The days of looking at a holster online and wishing you could get a better look at it before putting out your money are gone. Friendly, knowledgeable, professional are just. Few adjectives I would use to describe this company. Rock on, Alpha!!!!!

The Holster was exactly what I wanted and order. Fits my M&P perfectly. Great for a day on the range or walking in the woods.

I've carried a handgun professionally for over thirty years and used various custom and production holsters. I am impressed with the quality, fit and finish, of this holster. It was reasonably priced and turn- around time was good. I will definitely be ordering more gear from Alpha Concealment.

First order from Alpha and very happy with this holster! Great retention and solid hold. Fit and finish are great, and the Alpha team has been really helpful with questions I've had about this and other products
