Utility Bag 

Comes with a utility bag to store way your Urban Holster or you can repurpose for carrying small items (ear phones, cosmetics).  The fabric is quality grade cotton meant for high end suits. 

How was it conceived? 

Like to design things that fit my needs first and make it available for others when i see there is a demand for it. Wanted  quick access to my iPhone, my mechanical pencil, small notepad, credit cards, drivers license and numerous small items along the way ( small pocket knife, maps etc). I was inspired by the practicality and beautiful lines of an old army holster found in an antique store.  

Below are some early concept sketches 

And working on the early prototype...

You can customize it!  

It you want your name or initials branded on the leather strap this can be done as shown in the example below (see Rewards section).  By default there is no branding other than the Urban Holster logo (always shown at both left).

As mentioned above  you can change the color of the leather strap as well. 

Add Ons  

You  can add your key strap (or mine like the one below) that can be strapped on your holster as seen in picture below. If you interested in getting a key holder see Rewards section.
