    This may or may not be a problem for you but I prefer the belt slots to be parallel, It may depend on the belt you wear.

    I have a Snap Off Elite from them that I am very happy with. Very good quality construction.

    I do not own any of their leather but I've only heard good things about them over the years.

    Hey Y'all: My only comment would be that there are so many good mfgrs out there, so many materials, and surprisingly difference in pricing for a basically simple product (it is not a rocket ship) that even due diligence may not work. IMHO, for $70 I want more than "I'll give it a try"--I want "I'll give it a try and he'll refund or work with me on a fix".

    I own a El Paso, and it is a really nice holster, but my favorite is my High Noon. like the one shown for the following reasons....

    1. Look at the photo below, see how high riding it is? Very little is below the belt.

    2. It has a nice slide guard, to help keep my ,,,ugh....roll from getting gouged.

    3. really nice molding.

    4 has a tenision screw....

    Looks like a nice holster, do they have a return policy in the event you are not happy with it after having it for awhile?

    I have 5 holsters from El Paso and each one will last a lifetime. Their quality is excellent and the materials are first rate. I bought the first one about 12 years ago and still use it on a regular basis. It's just getting worn in, not worn out.

    Tankdriver,
    I sent an email to El Paso asking if they could add the slide guard to their holster. I'm 5' 9" and a really high riding holster can feel like wearing a shoulder holster, that's why the one from El Paso looks like it would be more comfortable, since it does sit lower on the belt.

    You have pictured exactly the "other" holster I have considered from High Noon. I just like the looks, and it seems to be good quality. Is the back of the High Noon flat and comfortable against your side?

    Yes, very comfortable, even after a long day.

    I agree with tiwood, something doesn't look right about the slots, but it's a great looking piece of leather.

    Look at the slot placement and then search all the other holster makers...I doubt you'll find the same angled slot placement.OMOYMV

    They have been making holsters for ages.
    Nice cowboy leather too.

    I received a reply from El Paso leather telling me that they could not add a slide guard to the back of this holster.

    Looks like I'll be ordering the High Noon. Thanks everyone for chiming in.
