    Anything I won't like about the MTAC?

    Hi,

    Thinking of getting the MTAC for a soon to be purchased XD45C. I've only read positive things about this IWB holster. Are there any negative things I should be concerned about?

    Thanks

    You will feel naked when you have to take it off!

    I have carried my XD45acp Service in my Mtac for three years now and I absolutely cannot think of anything more comfortable in a holster. I have no damage and absolutely no negatives about this holster whatsoever. Would buy another one in a heartbeat.

    It's an excellent holster. It's very adjustabl, so you can try a wide variety of positions until you find the one that works best for you (it took me many tries). since it's half leather, the opening collapses part way when you draw your gun, which depending on how tightly you cinch your belt can make it a litte tricky to re-holster. Also, the degree of retention (how hard you have to pull to draw your gun) depends to some extent on how tightly you cinch your belt.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    You might not like mints. Other than that? Nah

    It is a super holster, and I love mine. The clips seem a little weak, but they seem to hold the holster down

    Are you speaking of the older clips? CTAC site states the following:


    "You may notice that our Standard Clips have changed. We have been working for a long time to make a polymer clip that is more durable, more secure, and more concealable. Using an entirely different molding process, we've found our solution.


    You'll find that the new clips provide a more positive grip on your belt. They are also longer (with more holes) to give more cant adjustment, and narrower, for better concealment. The real benefit, however, is the durability. We have been testing the new design for months on a "clip-testing robot". Until now, our best design was good for 10,000 flexes. This new design went for over 10,000,000 flexes without failure (considered infinite for this type of product). Like any clips, they're not invincible--but they're certainly an improvement".

    Yes, my only complaint is I did not find it sooner!! I could have avoided buying a bunch of holsters I did not like. Mtac is a great holster, HIGHLY recommend them.

    I like the fit and finish on the MTAC better than the Crossbreed. and the fact that you can interchange the bodies on them.

    there are lots of kinds of clips. I have the C clips and they work great.
    I have the CTAC cuz they didnt have the MTAC when i got mine. Great holster, you will be happy with it
