International™ Holster | Belt, Paddle, Drop Offset Holster | Comp-Tac

The Comp-Tac International™ Holster (w/ modular mount) from High Speed Gear on Vimeo.

We produce products for the most popular make and model pistols, S&W, Glock, Springfield, H&K, Sig Sauer and many more.  Please select your pistol from the Make and Model drop down.

Do you have a red dot optic attached to you firearm for competition? Our International Holster is cut down in the front to fit most Optic Sight and has a .5" tall sight rail to fit most suppressor/optic co-witnessing sights. 

The International is an outside the waistband (OWB) holster with a modular mounting design giving the user 16 holster options in 1.  Designed to be worn at 3:00 this holster is perfect for competition shooting, concealed carry or general use.

Key Product Features: 

  • All Kydex OWB Holster- Perfect for use in Competitive Shooting Sports
  • (3) Mount Options included- Belt Mount, Paddle Mount, Drop Offset Piece
  • Cant Adjustable 
  • Belt Width Adjustable; 1.5" or 2" 
  • Retention Adjustment- Allows Customer to Tighten or Loose Holster Hold on Firearm

The International’s all-Kydex body provides a rigid material that is custom fit to each firearm and maintains its shape even with the pistol un-holstered. The smooth, low friction surface allows for a fast draw and easy one-handed re-holstering of the firearm. The all-Kydex body will not bend or stretch over time and is impervious to sweat and solvents. The raised lettering on the front of the holster specifies the make and model your holster accommodates, so you will never forget what gun it goes with.

Mounting Configurations: The International comes set up as a Belt Holster. The two additional mounting options will be included in the package at no extra charge!

Belt Mount: The Belt mount is the most popular holster among competition shooters, a secure hold that is designed with a curve to fit comfortably on the hip. The Belt Mount will accommodate either a 1.5” or 2” wide belt. Once belt width is widened to 2” it cannot be changed back.  

Paddle Mount: The Paddle Mount is the answer to anyone who wears many different styles of pants. You no longer will have trouble feeding the holster around your belt loops. The paddle slips over the belt and inside the waistband for a comfortable, secure fit that is quick and easy to put on or take off. With vents in the paddle portion this is a cool and comfortable option.

Drop-Offset: Comp-Tac has worked for years on the best way to fit each person’s shape and size. The drop offset is the answer. The Drop-Offset piece is specifically designed to help set the pistol away from the body and drop it to a lower position for a more comfortable draw. Designed with a cross brace to keep stable during the draw, the Drop-Offset is ideal for lady shooters whose waist and hip measurements may make proper holster fit a challenge.

Cant: The holster is designed with 8 mounting holes which allow it to be configured for a straight/speed draw, an FBI cant, or a cross draw rearward cant. Easily changeable, the holster is compatible with many mounting systems offered by other holster manufacturers.

Belt Width: Mounting hardware will accommodate a 1.5” or 2” belt width, once the adjustment tab has been removed it cannot be reattached.

The International holster body is available in multiple colors but the mounting hardware is always black.  

Directions on Adjusting Your International Holster

Competition Guidelines:  

IDPA: Drop-Offset Legal for female shooters. Not Legal for male shooters.
USPSA: Drop-Offset not legal for Men in the Single Stack Division.

Revolver Shooters!

We have holsters- please see photos for the difference between IDPA front and USPSA front. If you have questions please give us a call!



NOTE: The “Slide” version allows the user to use one holster for similar guns of different lengths (such as Glock 9mm, .40, and .357). The Slide is typically slightly longer than the shortest gun of the series, and left open so that longer guns may ‘slide’ through the end of the holster.

Slide versions of outside the waistband holsters are recommended for range work only. While carrying a longer firearm in a slide holster the end is left exposed and the user must be careful not to bump the exposed muzzle up against anything that might dislodge the firearm, i.e. sitting down in an arm chair.

    Best OWB holster out there

    Posted by Eriq Frommert on Jan 9th 2020

    I’ve been using these holsters for years in IDPA competitions, and recently out at Frontsight. They have always performed to my expectations and have never let me down.

    Love these holsters. This is my 3rd holster purchase from them. Different mounting options as well as choice of color. This likely won’t be my last purchase.

    International Holster for G19

    Posted by Jack D on Dec 10th 2019

    Ran this holster for the first time last weekend with my G19 configured with the paddle attachment and no drop. I bought this particular holster for it's versatility, can be used W/O the drop for CC, and with the drop for skill builder training. Even W/O the drop, this thing is fast! Will easily take 1/2 second off in timed drills drawing from concealment, which is a big deal for the formal training I participate in. Good retention without being "too tight" for timed drills. Good concealment inside an open shirt or jacket. VERY satisfied so far, it's a keeper.

    International Holster w/belt, paddle and drop offset

    Posted by Kevin McCarthy on Nov 24th 2019

    Comp-Tac came to my attention when I made my first handgun purchase. I was searching for a quality holster that would fit my Walther Creed 9mm.
    Ordering from Comp-Tac couldn’t be easier. The site is simple and very easy to navigate. For me, that important since I don’t live near their store. And their shipping is very fast. They process orders quickly in order to get your purchase out the door as fast as possible.
    I really, really like the International Holster! Great design! The quality of material seems to be fantastic compared to some of the other makers out there. And my Creed fits perfectly with zero adjustments required out of the box. Sometimes a manufacturer’s tolerances are very high which means that the gun may be loose or not fit at all because it is too tight. Not so with Compa-Tac! My Creed slides in and locks in place exactly as intended.
    What is really great about the International Holster is the amount of options it gives you for carrying your pistol. It comes with the belt attachment mounted in the standard carry position. If you prefer the “FBI Cant” or want to cross draw your weapon, simply remove the three Phillips screws holding the belt adapter and reposition to your liking and re-install the screws. The adjustment is not on a slide and I think that’s a good thing. The holster will not change positions due to wear or force. Prefer a paddle mount? No problem! Remove the same three screws and replace the belt adapter with the paddle. Easy. I don’t see myself using the included offset but I definitely see where it would be a valuable option for someone carrying a lot of different gear.
    I highly recommend Comp-Tac! Their products are great and my shipment came with a hand written thank you note on the packing list as well as some smarties candy! A simple, but very nice touch! They clearly value every customer and it shows! I will be buying from them again very soon when I add the Walther PPQ M2 to my collection!
