    Horse hide for hot humid climates

    the MTAC looks nicer finished and a new shell for a different pistol for only $38. Crossbreed ST does not appear to be as nicely finished. But for app. the same price of the MTAC the leather backing is horse hide. Will not be CCing a lot so would the difference between hides be significant? Live just north of Houston=hot and humid. This is for a G 19 I suspect more often I will grab a Ruger LCR and carry in a pocket holster or something like a High Noon Mr. Softy , or Galaco Tuck and Go, or Hume H 715.

    The horsehide is more for the protection of the weapon from contact with the skin, and stands up better than cowhide in a damp or humid environment. Is it hot or humid where you live? If so, the horsehide would be the better choice IMHO.

    about 70 miles north of Houston. Really humid. It can be 100 degrees and very humid. I've seen fish walking about comfortably!

    I have the supertuck in horse hide, it is very comfortable against the skin when worn with a tucked shirt.

    Hi kapnketel, Do you have the combat cut on your supertuck? Have the leather cut away from the grip of the weapon? I am looking at getting two holsters for my SA XD40 SC. One of them is the Crossbreed Super Tuck Delux and the other is a custom holster from Pure Kustom.

    It is not cut down-I carry a FNP 40 which has ambi decocker levers and those would rub me the wrong way, so to speak. I have no problem drawing the weapon.

    I carry a GLOCK 19 in a Crossbreed Supertuck in horsehide with the combat cut. Contrary to popular belief the combat cut does not expose the top half of the gun. There is material between the slide of the gun and your body/undershirt. The part that is cut away exposes the grip of the gun. The cut follows the curve of the pistol where the webbing between your thumb and index finger grip the pistol. I would recommend the combat cut just for the easy of getting a good grip when drawing.

    the fact that I can get a Crossbreed ST in horsehide for about the same cost as the MTAC in cowhide is the delima. The MTAC is finished better, looks better (yea I know who cares it is "concealed" and has the advantage of changing out shells for $38 for other pistols. On the other hand, I can get the same concept in the Crossbreed in horsehide. I will not carry a lot but when I do it is likely to be hot and humid. If I were carring all the time I would go the horsehide and not look back. Decisions,Decisions.

    The supertuck would get my vote. It may not 'look' as well finished, but it is one fine piece of hand crafted leather.

    I'm in Texas too and I use a supertuck. Works great.

    Just kidding!

    Oneton purchased my Bluegrass Hybrid Holster. It has the horsehide inner and it was very comfortable in humid Florida heat.

    Now, he gets to enjoy it instead of me

    I was wondering if I was the only person to ever notice that . . . .
