    Question How long does it take to break in a Crossbreed holster?

    I tried on one of the CrossBreed mini tucks with my M&P9c at the range tonight. It was brand new and felt rather stiff and not the most comfortable. How long is the break in period and are they much more comfortable after it?

    I used leather conditioner on mine about 3 times the first week and kept working the hide until it softened up. It is very comfortable now. Mine is the horsehide.

    All it took for me was finding the right position, 1911/cowhide

    If you are big and fat like me and sweat a bunch it will take about a full day. I second the leather conditioner. Especially given what I just described. Very nice holsters. My choice by all means.

    Sweat a lot, and use some kind of leather conditioner. Took about 2 days in this heat....

    I returned a week ago from a two week trip to Cody wyoming, I wore my SuperTuck horsehide combat cut everyday including the drive out and back, in it sat a XDsc9mm. I had only wore it a couple hours before this trip.
    I swear I hardly knew it was there.

    Extremely happy, it was so comfy I just ordered another for my 1911.
    I reckon it broke in real quick like...

    I have one in horsehide for my 1911's. Once I found the right position for the clips I had no problems with lack of comfort. It conformed very quickly to my body contour without any conditioners ,etc. It is, by far, the most comfortable IWB I have ever used. I just wish they had been around during my years as a LEO.
