The first successful Kydex holster was the Snick, designed and manufactured by Michael Horne in Bakersfield, California, starting in the middle 1970s. It was hot-folded by hand from a simple shape cut from thick sheet stock, included a built-in belt loop, and enabled what was probably the fastest draw stroke possible from a reasonably secure, outside-the-pants-waistband (OWB) holster. But the Snick disappeared from the marketplace because its design over-stressed the Kydex, which would then unpredictably fail along its lines of flexion.
