A hybrid seems to be the best. Leather against the skin with Kydex etc for retention and rigidity. I also like the leather to come to the top of the slide because metal on skin isn't much better than plastic.I can't imagine kydex anything being comfortable inside the waistband, let alone kydex being the most comfortable choice
I like 3:30-4 with the grip laying along my belt. My gravitational enhancement rests comfortably on the grip and is completely discreet with a t shirt.What position are you going to carry?
I have waist holsters from 4 different companies depending on the gun, where I'm carrying, and what I'm wearing.
Galco (oldest & leather) least favorite for drawing.
Dara 3 o'clock carry IWB
Tier 1 concealed appendix
T-rex Arms also appendix.
The last 3 companies only make kydex holsters which are super rugged and consistent.
Hope that helps.
Not a fan of the crossbreed because the models I liked at were pretty bulky for what I got when compared to the others.
Amen. The 3.5 iwb is awesome. The great thing is thar you can trade in the shell, even if you go with another gun, and all you pay is shipping for the swap.Body shape, firearm model, and carry position all play a part in the answer. I'm thick in the middle, carry a Max9 with red dot and prefer a 3 'o clock carry. I got an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3.5 and could easily forget I am carrying, whether sitting, standing, driving, or walking. Relatively inexpensive, extremely adjustable (cant and depth take only seconds to change), conceals insanely well, and the material is comfortable where it touches skin. There may be holsters on the market as good as this one for my body type and carry preferences, but I honestly don't know how one could be better. View attachment 7912
I tried carrying IWB @ 25 years ago...hated it. I decided to try again a couple of years ago, choosing a Tenicor Velo and a P365...much more comfortable than my previous experience (despite being @ 25 lbs. larger).I can't imagine kydex anything being comfortable inside the waistband, let alone kydex being the most comfortable choice
