I received my order (4273) Monday for a S&W Governor holster and drop loop. I was really impressed by the quality of both items. The holster was a fit immediately and did not require a break-in. The stitching and dyeing were perfect. Great Job!!!

it came yesterday and it is very comfortable. It works great with

Hello I recently bought my Super Blackhawk Exclusive .44 Magnum and found out about your Holsters you make here in Alaska, so did my research and watched my share of youtube videos on your Holsters :) I spoke to one of your rep and she was great Customer Service! Sorry i forgot her name started with a T "Taylor"? anyways she was fantastic. Thank you for having great staff along with your high quality of product! I received my holster within Days i live here in Sitka Alaska. I opened it up excited and slipped my New Revolver into the holster and WOW fit amazing like a perfect Glove. looked at all the threading on my holster and flawless! the Leather on it is Phenomenal a perfect 10 on all aspects on what you all do thanks again :) HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!
I received my chest rig holster the other day. This is my second
chest rig I have purchased from you. As usual the craftsmanship,
fit and finish are outstanding! Your design is so much better
than any other I have tried in the past. You folks make a first
rate product. Thank You! David
Looks and fits great! Can't wait to take it into the field.
Thank you for your fine work.
Thank you so much! I will be here all day for the delivery.
I truly love the Diamond D Guide holster I bought from Cabelas
and I know it will be the same with this new holster direct from
the source. I'm 65 with bad knees and having two hands free in
case I fall makes a difference; just as importantly, having easy
access to the weapon where I hunt is paramount to success.
The holster arrived in 3 days. The holster fit the
Taurus 82 perfectly. and it is a product of outstanding quality.
I was particularly impressed with the "double headed" screws
that secured the strap adjustment.
Received it today very pleased with the workmanship and fit
thank you very much. Truly satisfied Wendell B
I can't thank you people enough for putting the extra snap on
my S&W 500 Mag speed loader pouch. It works great with the longer
Barnes bullets. Both the Guide's Choice holster & speed loader
pouch are great, high quality products! I can't imagine trying
to carrying this weapon in any other type of holster.
Your holsters are absolutely impeccable.
The quality of workmanship is unequaled in the industry.
I have never holstered my Anaconda because I could never find
a holster that I was comfortable putting it in...until now!
Anyhow, thanks for all the hard work you do to produce such a
I got the holster. Looks and feels great.
You got it to me faster than I expected.
Just got my Guides Choice for my S/W 686.
LOVE IT! This is the holster I've been looking for.
Thanks for a great product and great customer service.
I am in receipt of my new holster. I am very pleased with this entire transaction. I own at least 20 holsters and I will say that my new holster is a beauty and will not sit in a drawer. Great product, great service.
I received my Guide Chest Holster for my Glock G40 MOS on
Saturday, Dec 24th. Out of the box I was impressed, I adjusted
the straps and have worn it for 2 days now, working in the pistol
and the magazine pouch. I have worn it both ways, with the main
strap over both sides, and this is the nicest holster I own for
off the belt carry. Heck, it`s the nicest holster period. I have
a bunch of pistols and revolvers with two big boxes of holsters
I rarely even use anymore, I have several shoulder holsters too,
this is the best way to carry a large pistol or revolver. One of
my buddies with a S&W 629-3, 8 3/8" barrel is captivated with
this thing, he`s had a hard time finding a holster suitable for
that hogleg. I will be ordering another for another pistol, the
hand work is flawless and the quality is outstanding. Thanks for
another GREAT American made product!!! God Bless and Merry
Christmas. Boyd B

craftsmanship are impeccable. Period. Thank you and Merry
Christmas to everyone!
I have one of your Guide's Choice holsters that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!
I use it center chest while backpacking and under my left arm when
bow hunting. It's perfect! It only requires a strap adjustment.
Just received my Rifle Butt Cuff today and went ahead and put
it on my rifle, Ruger 44 Mag Carbine. Perfect.......now I have
my eye on a Holster for my 44 Blackhawk. Thanks
I recommend the Guide’s Choice Chest Holster. I spent 20 plus years in the military and discovered I prefer a chest holster to a waist holster. The chest holster is out of the way when sitting, getting in and out of vehicles, and frees my hands while walking. I recently used the Diamond D holster while deer hunting. The ability to walk and cover ground while using a revolver in a holster is much easier then carrying a rifle or a shotgun. If you are comfortable hunting with a revolver; I recommend using the revolver and a holster.
A holster completes and enhances the use and enjoyment of a handgun. I see people at the shooting range with their handgun in a box or range bag. The holster is a safe convenient place to put your handgun in between firing rounds. One thing common to humanity is we talk with our hands. So if you stop to talk put your handgun in a holster.
The Diamond D holster was made for my 357 Ruger Blackhawk. It fits perfectly. I also own a Ruger single six 22, and a Heritage Rough Rider 22. All three handguns have the same length barrel. The Diamond D holster works for any one of the three handguns I choose to carry. One thing to note the 8 round reload accessory is too long to fit on the chest strap of the rig. So order the 6 round reload, or you’ll need to place the 8 round reload on the horizontal strap of the rig.

Hello there, I just received my guides choice chest holster today for my raging bull and I have to tell you I love it and it surpassed my expectations ! Thank you for the quick prompt service also. I'm sure I can get you some more business once my hunting buddies see it. Plus I think I would like another for another pistol or two that I have. Thanks again! Dave R
Just wanted to tell you guys the Alaskan Holster for my Smith and Wesson 627 V-Comp fit perfect and is the best holster I have ever owned. It was well worth the wait for quality workmanship like you guys do. I have since ordered a belt and rifle sling that I can hardly wait to receive. I would highly recommend your products to anyone and would gladly be used as a reference if needed. Thanks again!!!!!
Received in record time !! I added an item on Friday before noon and received my holster at 12.43 PM on Monday. 3 days including the weekend in Los Angeles.
The quality is outstanding and I expected it to be but the service, if isn't just equal to the quality, it surpasses it !!
Thank you all ! Allan, Peter and Taylor who helped me over the phone.
Very grateful and appreciative of your winning business formula !
Thank you for making a comfortable high quality product. I am completely satisfied with the holster and how comfortably I can carry my backup weapon. Cheers from Montana!
I've just now ordered a FOURTH Diamond D Custom Leather product. I should let you know that I'm very particular about gun leather, and I've owned rigs from several companies whose names you'd recognize, for around 40 years, using VARIOUS belts, holsters, slings, pouches, and so on. The obvious quality of the blocking, leather-finishing, and stitching that you can see in the photographs on the Diamond D site are no exaggeration; they're simply showing you what they really DO, there, in Wasilla. Aside from the excellent appearance of their gear, the fact is that many of the people shopping from this page will not just be carrying these items for "fun," or for "looks," but because they're going to need to actually be able to RELY-upon this sort of gear. Well, the reason that I'm now on my FOURTH Diamond D product is that, in my opinion, this is well-placed reliance. Look at the OTHER testimonials, and you'll see what I mean. And, even if you're simply a casual, recreational shooter, it certainly doesn't hurt to be able to hold a piece of really well-executed craftsmanship in your hand, and to be grateful that it reflects the kind of care and quality that went into the sort of high-quality "hardware" for which you bought this kind of gun leather, to begin-with. No kiddin'.

Received my holster today. Not only was that incredibly fast, the holster is way too nice. That first trip into the woods is going to be difficult as I do not want to scratch it! Very impressive work!!!!
I just wanted to compliment you on a fine product, after spending thousands(really) of dollars trying to find a suitable do all holster, I found yours for my S&W 329PD! Float hunting AK to Coues White Tail in AZ, this dog will hunt! I just received my second chest holster this time for a Glock 21 and it is perfect. I will be ordering a belt and your hip holster next just for the elegant dinner parties(BBQ's) to show of my holster and 1911 BBQ gun.
Thanks for a fine American Made Product.
P.S. I've had six buddies buy once since I got mine, Keep the quality, they sell themselves.
I received my new holster today and was absolutely blown away!! The craftsmanship, fit and finish are top notch, and I didn't even have to adjust the strap...it fit perfectly right out of the box. You guys have really hit it out of the park with this design. I wore it for at least 3 hours today and it is very comfortable..much more so than my old hip holster. I should have ordered one a long time ago. Thanks for a great product, easy ordering and the incredibly fast shipping!!
I've been buying holsters from you for years and was very anxious to get my hip holster for my Freedom Arms model 83. Got the box. Ripped it open like a kid on Christmas But when I saw the holster and thought " oh my this is never going to fit." Well I was wrong and as usual it is well constructed. The fit, which I questioned , was excellent. The revolver is probably the most attractive handgun I own and you holster only enhances the look. Also love the toilet paper holder!

Just wanted to let you know that the holster arrived and I really like it. The Mountain Gun fits perfectly and so does the speedloader. It's a comfortable holster to wear, as well. Outstanding job!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I wanted to send my thanks to you for the terrific order-service and next day delivery of 2 of the pistol chest-rigs. They arrived at Spernak Airways Anchorage the next day and well in time for our fishing expedition 2016.
The product is fantastic...guns fit perfectly and the adjustment screws and straps make it a dream to secure it onto any size person.
The Colt 45 sized nicely with double snaps for max security and having the extra magazine pouch sewn right onto the shoulder strap for easy access worked perfect. Same for the .44 mag set-up with the trigger loop.
This is a worthy investment for hunters and fishermen who traverse rough country or for fishing in streams to keep the weapon dry and accessible for self-defense.
Your company, service and products are 5-star and should last our lifetime as an outstanding piece of wilderness equipment that you can trust your life on.

Just wanted to say thanks for such a great product. I love the combo of my Guide's Choice holster with my Ruger Super Blackhawk 6" 44 mag!
To whom it may concern,
I ordered a "Guides choice" holster for my brother in law's birthday. He was just diagnosed with cancer so the present was especially well received.
Please thank the craftsman who constructed this fine holster that he or she not only produced a great holster they brought a lot of happiness to a person who has lately received nothing but "crappy" news.
I wish every company took care of their customers like ya'll do. I purchased my third guide's choice holster from ya'll. I explained I was going on a hunt and I was in a time crunch. Ya'll came through and went beyond what I asked for. I can't thank you enough. Your customer service is fantastic. I wish ya'll the best. A life long friend and customer down here in Texas. Mike B.
I received my holster a few days ago and am totally impressed with everything about it !! I am sure I will be doing a bit more shopping with you guys in the near future. Thanks for a great made in Alaska/USA product..............................Tim
I ordered my holster last week and was amazed it got here to NYC so quickly! Kudos to you all.
As with my previous orders from Diamond D, I really love the craftsmanship. The guides choice is a wonderful rig.
Due to a very tight fit, it was suggested I wrap my revolver ( ruger alaskan) in saran warp overnight. This along with drawing and holstering repeatedly is making for a better fit.
However I still require two hand to draw the revolver; left hand to hold down the holster in place, right hand to draw. While this isn’t a deal breaker, In the videos I watched this wasn’t necessary,
Its it just a break in issue?
In reality its not a very huge departure from using a hip holster, support side to chest then mate both hands upon presentation. My trigger finger discipline is good but still I really want to draw with one hand, god forbid I’m injured or the other hand is otherwise occupied. Also Im not a fan of flagging any part of my body with the muzzle of any firearm.
I received my holster this week and absolutely love it. My G40 fits perfectly.
It's going to be a sweet deer hunting rig here in the Michigan cedar swamps. It's safe to say that won't be the last holster I order.
I received my order. Wow....it looks great thank you for what certainly appears to be quality products.
Your company has a stellar reputation for a stellar holster, but the rifle sling is especially eye popping it's the exact kind of sling I've been searching for
Thank you so much for a perfect fit holster. I received it yesterday, all in good order, and it fits both myself and the gun perfectly.
Actually was going to write last week, wondering about when I should expect, and then saw this note the next day. Pretty good timing. =)
Hope you all are well ... and, thank you again!
All the best,
Just got my Guides Choice Holster.WOW,it is not only beautiful and well made,but fits so perfect.I am carrying my Backpacker 44 magnum in it and you don't even know you have it on.Then,I got it in a week all the way from Alaska to Ohio.This was my first purchase,but will not be my last.You have a great company and great service.Will be ordering more items from you in the next week.Thanks so much!!
Wow! I am speachless and at a loss for words at how impressed I am at the quality, fit and function of my new Guides choice holster that just arrived today for my Freedom Arms mod 83 7 1/2 inch barrel. I was wondering if ther would be a good way to carry this long handgun and this holster is the real deal! It fits and rides so nicely even when bending over and moving around. I can't wIt to get out and hunt with it. My holster arrived in a most expedient time! I was expecting a much longer wait! I also want to thank you so much for allowing me to switch my order to a different gun for now. When I called to speak with you a very friendly and professional woman answered the phone and was extremely helpful and so nice to talk to. Wish I could remember her name but you folks are awesome. I am so very happy with every aspect of my business experience with you all. Nice work! Beautiful leatherwork and craftsmanship! Top notch!!! I will soon be ordering another of the same holster for my Ruger Redhawk. And when the guys at my hunting club see your work I will be sure to provide them with your name and number! Thank you very much for such a beautiful holster stystem and for be such a great bunch of people to do business with. You earned a loyal customer here!
Just got my 45-70 rifle cuff from diamond leather,unbelievable craftsmanship,the fit on the stock is perfect,the eye hole placement ,and the cut is second to none,I do chainsaw carving and glass etching so know a little about art and this is true art,ther are not enough companies in the world that just do it right but these guys put a quality product in your hands for a crazy good price,customer service and old world craftsmanship, now I want a carrying strap for my 45-70,and I know it will be more than I pay for,thank you for caring about your work and your customers
Hello there !
I just purchased one of your EXCELLENT quality Guides Choice holsters for my
S&W 686 and am I ever happy with it !. I've been researching a chest rig for
quite some time but never made a purchase because I just couldn't find the
"right one". My search ended after I watched a you tube video that I stumbled
on by accident and after seeing it decided to give your holster a try.
First off, the craftsmanship is second to none - you guys know leather !. My gun fit PERFECTLY
as if I had actually sent it in to be custom fitted - I
didn't even have to do the break-in you spoke of; it fit like a glove. I wore
it around most of the day and the comfort level was amazing. The weight
distribution and ability to adjust to your needs makes it a backpackers or
I plan on buying another rig from you soon for a .44 mag; I'm just undecided
what brand and barrel length I'll be going with yet or I'd have already
placed my order. The only holster I want my gun riding in is your Guides
Choice - try one, you won't be disappointed!. Thankyou for making such a
great product and providing equally great service!
I was going to submit my feedback once I received my holster, but decided to provide some now.
I had a few questions about the Guides Choice holster so I thought I'd call Diamond D directly. Upon doing so, I spoke with a gentleman named Steven. I have to say, he was extremely knowledgeable about their products comma answered all of my questions, took my order, never rushed the process and was a pleasure to speak to. The service I received was absolutely outstanding. I'm excited to receive my new holster and will submit feedback and pictures once received.
Thank you Diamond D for the incredible and friendly service. Without having my new holster in my hands yet, I am comfortable saying; anyone looking for a new holster, this is the place to buy it from!
Received my GC Holster. WOW. Thanks for the quality of your work. It is both comfortable, beautiful and will last a lifetime. Number two is in my cart but a little Gun poor at the moment and can't pull the trigger just yet. Again Thank you.
Dear Diamond D Custom Leather:
We have a home in Colorado and often travel out West during down time from our work schedules. Desiring a good all around "bear gun," I was finally able to locate a Ruger Super Red Hawk Alaskan. It needed a home and I was pleased to find the perfect holster the Guides Choice Chest Holster. I added the 7 round reload and speed loader and of course initials. The removeable flap added the finishing touch to this quality holster that fits perfectly and beats out any other method I've come across in my 58 years to keep my gun at the ready when taking out the trash in the mountains to a day fly fishing. Thanks for producing a great product made in the USA!

Hello i just received my Guides Choice Holster and i love it. You made it extra length for my lone wolf barrel on my Glock 20SF and the fit is perfect. The holster is thick top quality leather and i like the adjustment you have for lowering the holster if you have a tall upper body i had to adjust mine 1 hole lower which i was very glad i could, there was No charge for making my holster longer to fit the custom barrel i have, again thank you for making a great product in America
I bought a GUIDES CHOICE from Amazon. It is a perfect fit for my RUGER SUPER REDHAWK ALASKAN 44MAG and the Speed Loader and it works great too. I'm very happy with your products. You do very nice work. Thanks, take care, GOD BLESS SLICK-OUT
I received this order today.
Your products are perfect! I/m very impressed with your workmanship.
I've today placed another order for a 1911 Guides Choice Holster.
Around 3 years ago I did extensive research to determine what holster manufacturer had that best holster for my 4" 44mag S&W. I concluded that Diamond D Custom Leather Guides Choice Chest holster was the best fit.
I completed a phone order and received that holster a few weeks later and it was simply unmatched. It was the best holster I have ever seen or had and it fit my gun perfectly. I am an avid bow hunter and it worked perfectly when drawing without getting in the way and the modifications to moving the holster were exactly as described. I recommended your holster to so many hunting buddies and patients.
I just received my guides choice holster. It only took a few days to get here, didnt expect it so soon! I just want to thank you guys for this wonderful product. I have always made do with cheap holsters, but last fall while packing out a big bull moose I became fed up with my nylon hip holster pulling my pants down, catching brush, and being less than ready if I had needed it in a hurry. Being covered in blood at 2:00 am, middle of nowhere in the Alaska range made me think about how quickly I could draw and shoot. I'm a working stiff, and $200 for a holster was alot to swallow, But the fact that you guys are making them here in Alaska made the decision easier. When I strapped it on with my RSR toklat I realized that it's worth every dime. Problem is now I want one for each of my handguns! Thanks again, Frank in Sterling.
The Sig 220 Alaskan Guide Holster w/mag pouch has arrived, and thank you for the great service. Like all the my Diamond D Holsters (12+) the product is a prefect fit and the workmanship is unsurpassed by any other maker to date! Thanks again.
The holster you sent is my new favorite leather for my .44 here on the ranch. Retired my old belt and holster. Can't wait for the holster for the 10mm. Thanks. Great holster, wish I had one years ago.
Just received my guide holster for my 629Vcomp, it is awesome! Wanted to drop you a line to say thanks, so comfortable, looking forward to all day carry now....Thanks again for a great product
I just want to say I am blown away by your product and service. I ordered a Guides Choice for my 6" 1911 on 1/21/2016 and opened my door today and low and behold there it was. I wasn't expecting it for several more weeks. It is an even better holster than I thought and I knew it was good. Thank you and your crew so very very much. I am sure I will have to have another for a different handgun soon.
Received the holster for my S&W 629. fantastic holster. the holster was a perfect fit the way it came adjusted. thanks. this rig will go on all deer, pig and elk hunts from now on. can't wait for the one for my Glock 10mm. I think you will be getting some new Texas customers from my direction in the future. thanks again.
Fits perfect ( the gun and me). Thanks for another great holster. Time to reload a batch of 32s and go walking around for rabbits while hiking into trout streams.
Got my chest holster and it fits me and my gun like a glove. Thank you
for making a quality product.
Your holsters are absolutely the best. I have struggled with my super blackhawk and wife's condescending sneers for years until I found you guys. It was still a few years before I could finally get the OK to get "that holster I always talked about." Just got it today and I can't wait to rock it on my next hike. Nice leather work and great cross draw design! Erik D.
WOW! I received my guides choice today, and I must say the craftsmanship is exceptional! Thanks for making a great product. Looking forward to fly fishing, 4-wheeling, mountain biking and hiking with it on. Perfect fit! Thanks again.
Just got my holster. What a quality product you produce. It exceeds my expectations. This is a product that you can be proud to say is made in America, I will wear it with pride.
