    Stoner Holsters sells some pretty good leather dressing. Check it out at StonerHolsters.com. I'm thinking it will stop or at least reduce holster wear on the gun finish also.

    I wear IWB Brommeland products on a Wilderness Instructor belt. For me, the creakiness diminishes as the holster breaks in.

    Carry peppermint lifesavers... or altoids... grind one up and spit it into your hand when they ask... show and tell 'em you "know it's a problem... but all these questions make you soooo tense"... They'll prolly leave you alone.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    The leather is dried out. Apply some Neets Footoil to the leather.

    Loosen the belt a hair and see if that helps.

    I use baby powder, working it into the seems/threads, and apply a little where the belt and holster slot or loops come in contact with each other.

    Had that problem with the last two nice Alessi holsters. Eventually goes away with use. I called it my "Pip Squeek"

    Try Gold Bond or Baby powder. Rub it into the contact surfaces. It stopped the squeaking of my metal clips against the leather backing of my Kholster Holster.

    I have found KIWI neutral shoe polish rubbed on the leather on both sides of the slots for the belt will eliminate the noise. Any place that the belt touches the holster should have the polish put on.
