IT ALL STARTED WITH A PROBLEM
Like so many American small businesses HolaKme was born out of a problem I was having. In 2008 I was fed up with my concealed carry holster. I had tried just about every type of holster on the market and nothing seemed to work for me.
Inside the waistband holsters were too bulky and while they worked okay in the winter when I was wearing sweatshirts and jeans they didn’t work in the summer when I was wearing shorts and a T shirt. They also didn’t work when I was exercising or being active.
I FOUND THE PERFECT HOLSTER... ALMOST
It was around 2010 when I discovered the belly band holster. It was by far the most versatile and concealable way for me to carry my Sig Sauer P239. But there was one big problem. It was still uncomfortable.
All the belly band holsters on the market at that time were made of elastic and when you stretched the elastic around your torso it would pinch your skin and body hair. This really irritated my skin if I wore it directly against my body so I would end up wearing a t-shirt under the belly band to protect my skin from irritation. Then of course I was right back to being hot and the shirt would bunch up and it would become uncomfortable all over again in a new way.
AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT...
I continued to use a belly band holster for several years and went through dozens of them because it was still the best way to carry concealed that I could find. Finally one night while watching late night TV I saw an infomercial for a well known back brace. It was made of neoprene and some sort of magic copper I think, but it looked a whole lot more comfortable to wear than the elastic belly bands I had been wearing up until then. So I started searching for a neoprene belly band holster. Wouldn’t you know it, I couldn’t find one.
A BUSINESS IS BORN
So, like many DIY’ers out there I decided to make my own. That’s when the Ultimate Belly Band Holster was first created. After making one for myself dozens of friends and family ask if I could make one for them and the HolaKme brand was born. Since then we’ve expanded our line of products with one mission to make concealed carry comfortable.
STRAIGHT TO #1
Just 4 months after launching our brand the Ultimate Belly Band Holster became the #1 Best Seller out of all Gun Holsters in Ohio. It was an amazing ride and we are so grateful to everyone who has supported our products and mission. From our employees to our vendors and especially you, our customers, we appreciate you!
TIME FOR EXPANSION
With the success of our first product many were asking what was next and some were asking for specific products. Apparently as good as our belly band holster was people wanted more. Specifically an equally comfortable ankle holster. So, we delivered the Ultimate Ankle Holster.
Since day one the mission was simple. To develop the most comfortable concealed carry holster on the planet. That mission lives on today and is backed by the idea that we don't believe anyone should be stuck with a holster that they don't like and won't use.
THE BUY AND TRY BULLETPROOF GUARANTEE
That's why we developed our "Bulletproof Buy and Try Guarantee". Buy our holster and try it for up to 30 days. If you're not 100% satisfied return it for a refund. No original packaging no problem. We even developed a "No Weasel" standard that defines our company culture. We don't pass the buck. We don't make excuses. We own the situation and take care of it.
