In Greek mythology, Kratos is the personification of strength and power.

The Kratos is our Enhanced Light-Bearing Outside the Waistband (OWB) handgun holster, and is so named for its ability to perform well under pressure.


  • The Kratos is designed to be worn in the 3 or 4 o'clock position - simply feed your belt through the belt slide. 
  • This holster is ideal for open carry or use at the shooting range, with a weapon-mounted light or laser attached. 

About This Holster

If you're a shooter looking for an efficient and easily-accessible light-bearing OWB holster for either open carry or use at the shooting range, and you have no desire to conceal, this is definitely the holster for you. 

We call The Kratos our enhanced version of the light-bearing OWB because of its streamlined fold over design, and its adjustable retention – both of which are not offered by The Hyperion, our Standard Light-Bearing OWB. 

The Kratos is molded to fit a specific handgun model with a particular weapon-mounted light attached; your handgun will only fit in the holster that is designed specifically for it. This holster will only accommodate the gun with a specific weapon-mounted light attached, such as the TLR1 or Inforce APL; The Kratos will not function properly without the light or laser attached. If you are not running a light on your gun, you’ll want to check out the non light-bearing version of The Kratos: The Deimos.

The Kratos comes with a universal belt slide, which is adjustable to size and fits belts with a width from 1.5" to 2.25". To attach the holster to your belt, feed your belt through the belt slide. This type of hardware securely fastens the holster to your belt, ensuring it can only be removed by removing your belt. The back side of the holster has several predrilled holes on it, which allows the customer to adjust the belt slide's ride height and cant. If the customer selects a cant during checkout, the belt slide will come already set up in that particular cant; the customer can still move the belt slide to a different cant position if they desire. This particular hardware is a great choice for the shooting range, because it forces the holster off your hip by about 1/2", which gives the customer easier access to the grip, resulting in faster draw speeds and reholstering. It will not, however, lend itself well to concealed carry - it prints significantly, and creates a large "love handle" on your hip. If you plan to use your light-bearing holster for both range use and concealed carry, we'd recommend The Hyperion instead.

The Kratos comes with adjustable retention, which allows the customer to select a tighter or looser fit on both their gun and spare magazine. It is controlled by the two screws near the trigger guard.

This holster is made from one piece of Kydex, strategically molded around the gun and weapon-mounted light/laser attachment, and fastened together with quality hardware. All of the hardware comes with a lifetime guarantee, and if at any time it breaks or is lost, we will replace it at no cost to the customer.

The holster can be customized in your choice of 34 different colors or patterns. Click here to view color options.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that due to the amount of space necessary to accommodate a weapon-mounted light attachment, the top portion of the holster near the trigger guard will be wider than on a non-light-bearing holster. Depending on the exact dimensions of the particular weapon-mounted light, this open space is approximately 1/8" to 1/4". Please be assured that this is completely standard, and does not affect the functionality of the holster. As is the case whenever using a firearm, caution should be taken at all times to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you. 

DISCLAIMER: When ordering a light-bearing holster, customers will see a dropdown menu for handgun model, and a separate dropdown menu for weapon-mounted light/laser. Customers select the models they are using from each respective dropdown menu. 

Please note: all of our available handgun options, and weapon-mounted light/laser options, are listed in each dropdown menu. This DOES NOT mean that every option from one dropdown menu is compatible with every option from another dropdown menu. NOT ALL FIREARM AND LIGHT/LASER COMBINATIONS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH ONE ANOTHER. Please be sure to check the manufacturer information provided by the manufacturer of both your firearm and light/laser to ensure compatibility. If the light/laser is not designed for the firearm you select, a holster cannot be made for it. If you're unsure about compatibility, please contact us before placing an order.

  1. Sags big-time, very poor retention even after adjusting.

    Posted by Chris on 7th Jan 2019

    It just doesn't stay very well even after adjustments. It also has very poor retention after tightening the retention adjusters. More work is needed to make this par.

  2. Great holster

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Mar 2017

    This is a very comfortable holster that keeps a nice, tight hold on your pistol. My only complaint, and this being minor, is that it feels that it is holding the weapon further from your body than a Raven Concealment holster. I have recommended this holster to friends and I would buy another.

  3. Still deciding

    Posted by TC on 13th Feb 2017

    The fit-n-finish is nice and the pistol rides very well. Hardware is very nice. This holster doesn't have the "positive click in" I'm used to so it's taking a little getting used to and I am disappointed the holster will not retain the pistol if the light is detached. 4th Star is due to good open top cut and allows for a great positive grip on the draw stroke.

  4. PERFECT OWB with Light!

    Posted by Mike Pfeifer on 17th Oct 2016

    This thing is super nice. Took it in a three day elk hunting trip and did a ton of hiking with it. Held up amazing even dragging through lots of scrub brush. Love the fact it's compatible with RTI so will be adding that soon. Staff was SUPER responsive and really nice. Thanks alpha for the product and service!

  5. Congratulations. You just located the baddest hydro holster with a light.

    if you're a person with simplistic taste, then this is the holster for you. The simple, custom single fold design, is outstanding. I couldn't be more happy. Now, I'm not one to take the time to write reviews, but this deserve a positive review from my end. 10 stars!

  6. Look no further this is the holster you've been looking for

    Posted by Chris on 25th May 2016

    Glad I bought this holster it was everything I was looking for. Great quality holster and fits my Glock with stream light perfectly. Looks badass too!

  7. Everything was considered.

    Posted by Kevin K. on 27th Feb 2016

    I was really impressed by the thought that went into the design on the holster. It is adjustable for ride height, cant, weapon tension, and belt size. The one piece design is very simple and care was taken to reduce the print profile.

  8. great product with equally great service!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Jul 2015

    This holster is an excellent and the customer service is second to none.
