Brian Foy, USMC Retired & Owner of Tactical Technology LLC

"Erik's knowledge of combat systems, leather, stitching and fit reflect in the unparalleled craftsmanship he puts into each of his leather products. Since retirement, I travel all over the world still teaching marksmanship for my own company or as a government sub-contractor. I still use the original holster and magazine pouch Erik had sent me for my 1911. The craftsmanship, durability, and practicality are superior. After years of use, is looks and performs like new."

"Erik's #1 Holster is great piece of equipment. I recently carried it on a hunt and it rode very well, even under all my other gear. The construction is definitely solid with a perfect fit for the gun. Draw is natural and smooth. It even does a good job concealing the 1911 due to its belt loop system. In short, it's a simple design that works like it says."

Sgt. J.N. 22 SAS (Special Air Service) British Army

"Over one year of use, I can honestly proclaim the model 1 holster, magazine pouch, and belt is the best covert leather kit I have ever used. Having used it on countless actions, it has proved to be very concealable, secure, and durable. A lot of blokes discount the importance of the holster, magazine pouch, and belt and think of them as second to the pistol. However, the pistol is only as good as the kit it is carried in. Thank you, sincerely, for building quality kit that I can depend on when it matters most."

Clint Smith, President and Director of Thunder Ranch

"Erik Little is building solid leather gear that traces it’s lineage back to when good holsters were built by people who carried guns for a living. With time tested proven designs, upgrades and new designs of his own Erik brings the reality of a real holster used by real people back to life. Today’s true defensive handgun carriers would be wise to look at Erik’s equipment. I carry it."

Dick Williams, NRA Shooting Illustrated Handgun Editor

"Quality and fit are every bit as perfect as I expected, but what really got me was the modularity approach you took on both the single action revolver rigs and the 1911s. If I decide to carry a different size 1911, I simply swap holsters while maintaining the same belt, magazine holder, and flashlight holster. Each holster carries its gun in the position best suited for the mission at hand. Same with the single action revolvers; going from fixed sighted Vaqueros to adjustable sighted magnums is a simple holster exchange. Kudos all the way around, and you’ll be seeing your gear featured in my future articles."

"The name is Rafter-L Combat Leather.......This means leather for individuals who don't pretend...those special individuals who carry a handgun daily for one single purpose. That purpose, is the very dangerous and deadly business of staying alive. Erik Little understands the dynamics of armed combat and crafts his holsters, belts and magazine pouches to withstand the rigors and demands of armed-carry for those who will only "Use The Very Best."

MARK HANTEN of AMERICAN COP MAGAZINE

"Erik Little, of Rafter-L Gunleather is a retired sheriff’s deputy with significant experience in law enforcement. He has been building great leather gear, and a stellar reputation in the gun leather business for several years now. He’s a one-man custom shop with a limited line of holster models. He focuses on a few tried and true designs that work. The fact he’s included a lightmounted concealment holster in his line is a testimony to how well Erik understands cop’s needs, and the importance of this
type of holster. I carried the Holster #3, designed with a thumb break and trigger cover. It’s custom molded from quality leather for an incredible fit."

"Not too long ago, I was asked what was going to happen when all the master leather craftsmen are no longer around. Luckily there are still guys out there who like to work with their hands and are taking the time to learn from the great ones, or just go it on their own. Enter Erik Little of Rafter L Gun Leather. I found the holster very secure and smooth to draw from. After wearing the holster, mag pouch and belt daily for a few weeks, the gear and I molded to each other. My buddy who stopped by asking about holsters tried to leave with my Rafter L set up — I was quicker on the draw and he left without my rig."

Flint Hansen of SWAT Magazine

"Recently we received several leather products made by Erik Little of Rafter–L Gunleather— and they are some of the finest work to hit my doorstep in years.

One of the most impressive things about all the Rafter-L items tested was the fact that they feature a natural finish. This may not sound like a big deal, but a lot of blemishes and defects can be hidden by using dyes. You cannot hide quality, however, and the products from Rafter-L are just that."

Rafter-L Gunleather ” The Very Best In Combat Gunleather”, Gunner's Journal

"As an armed professional police officer for three decades one of my main concerns after choosing a weapon for my various duty assignments was to ensure I chose the best leather gear I could possibly find...

I know good leather when I see it as well as very good workmanship and a dedicated artisan who cares about his customers, especially those who go in harms way. I found such a person in Erik Little of Buffalo, Wyoming. Erik has a one man shop and is committed to creating the ultimate in quality leather goods for law enforcement as well as those in the military."

Steve McCroskey Retired Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper

"I wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your holster. I have been using it for about 3 weeks because my first impression was to send this immediately. I decided to wear it for a while before I started bragging about it. Your design is spot on and the attention to detail is as close to flawless as I have seen. It almost seems that you had my actual gun when you built it, the fit is perfect. I say all of this after 25 years of carrying a pistol for a living, having used almost every brand of holster, your work and design is the best I have ever seen. The only thing missing is a long list of ridiculous decorative leathers and an equally ridiculous high price. Thank you for an outstanding holster at a great price. You prove American craftsmen are still out there."

Sheriff Ken P. Campbell, Boone County Sheriff's Office

"I’ve had my share of leather and seen a great deal of less than quality equipment over the years as a Deputy Sheriff, Firearms Instructor and Gunsite Rangemaster...

Rafter-L reminds me of the legendary Bruce Nelson leather in many ways."

Detective, Dan Royston

"The design of the tapered belts gives the appearance of a dress belt, coupled with the performance of a gun belt. The holsters, magazine, and handcuff cases keep everything secure, yet are designed for a fast presentation when the need arises. I trust Erik Little’s designs and craftsmanship to the extent… I’d stake my life on it."
