Hello. If it might be of use, here are some observations from an older report on what has come to be my daily-use pocket holster:
This is a discussion on Favorite J-frame Pocket Holster within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I have a S&W 642 that I pocket carry in a Desantis Nemesis holster. I would rate this holster as good at keeping the gun ...
I have a S&W 642 that I pocket carry in a Desantis Nemesis holster. I would rate this holster as good at keeping the gun where it should be and only average at hiding the gun's outline when seated. I am interested in the experience if the group with pocket bolsters for the J-frame that both keep the fun where it should be, stay in the pocket on draw and hide the outline of the gun well especially when seated. I appreciate your input.

For a short period I used a Milt Sparks 'PCH-R' and it was fairly stable. The key feature is a bendable wire reinforcement around the perimeter that allows the user to adjust the holster to different style pants and pockets. On that note, an effective pocket carry relies heavily on the fabric weight of your pants for good concealment.
In the end, pocket carry wasn't as comfortable as I hoped for so I quickly sold this nice piece of work to a fellow forum member. The search continues...

My top choice is the "Pocket Packer Premium" from Wild Bill's Concealment... $50. There is a snap-detachable flap which masks the outline of the gun very well. In cargo-type pants I don't find it necessary, but in Dockers or similar casual slacks it is. I've had mine for over 10 years now, and it's holding up extremely well.

The best one I have found is the one made by Simply Rugged holsters. It is unique in the thinness of the leather, which hides the outline of the revolver, keeps it stable in the pocket, but adds little bulk. Highly recommended and reasonably priced. Rugged, too.
