Thanks for all the info. Looks like I need to invest in a good gun belt. I have found that I am always having to adjust the holster which is something that I have never had to do with my other holsters. I think I'm going to keep the holster and cross my fingers that the belt will make the difference.
I carry mine canted like you do with my 1911 at 3:00 and I do know it's there but it is very comfortable. It doesn't ride as low as I'd like but it's ok. I have a 5.11 gun belt with their permastiff insert in it and it holds it well. I'm fat which makes my pants hard to keep up anyway by it doesn't make it much worse. Give it some more time. The two of you willform to each other in time.

I have had mine for 1 year. I thinking that it is really comfortable BUT I do always know when I have it on. There are times maybe when I am on the phone or in a conversation and I am not thinking about it but for the most part, I can always feel its presence.

Make sure your pants are sized corrrectly. I had to buy jeans and slacks 2 inches larger to make it all comfortable. My regular jeans were just too tight. Larger slacks also make your draw easier by not being so snug. This can be controlled by your belt tightness. I keep my carry pants separate from my regular ones.
As for us "heavyweights", the Silent Thunder IWB does a great job of concealment. It has a very small footprint and seems to ride in our "creases" comfortably and efficiently. Don't even think about the Slim model if you're a big guy!

How will wearing it empty change the way it holsters? The holster part is Kydex. Can't imagine how its shape could change by wearing without the gun in it.
Milt Sparks are great, but none are tuckable. Crossbreed meets the tuckability test.

so if its not comfortable, dont use it. Im sorry, but no one holster is going to perfect for everyone. I would love to wear my brommeland, but the cbst does beat it in comfort for me. I have my CBST for my 19 front clip second from top hole (theres four holes) and rear clip at the very bottom. This mimics the cant on my Max Con V and creates a perfect cant for drawing while seated and is also very comfortable for me while seated. Note, my MCV also shines and excels while in the seated position.
Now heres where the high end holster fall short for me. One, the rough back on the cbst keeps the holster from shifting around, my mcv moves which can be benificial in some instances, but for the most part, the rough back is a plus. Also, the adjustable cant allows me to wear my jeans where theyre suppose to be and have the firearm where its suppose to be. What do I mean? Well, unless your wearing standard jeans i.e., 501 levis, a lot of the newer jeans are cut so they sit slightly below the waist in the front and the rear is little higher truer to the waist. With my MCV for it to be comfortable, it wants to pull the jeans higher so the weapon and holster are sitting in that pocket like they were designed to do. Problem here is the boys get the raw en of the deal. With the CBST, I can actually set it so that the weapon and holster sit high in the pocket but the clip are low enough to allow the jeans to sit wear they are suppose to be. Keep in mind Im a 30" waist, so this may not apply to others, this is just what Ive found works for me. ]
Now I love the draw and retention on my MCV. I wish Crossbreed would make a leather version. I thinks someone does, not sure who. Good luck!

I think Tucker Gunleather makes an all leather tuckable like the CBST. It doesn't reholster as well as the CB because it does not have a reinforced mouth but it is very comfortable for carry IIRC.
Glocks are great guns but there brick thickness eliminates them as a CC option for me. My CBST and PF-9 go with me everywhere and I do forget its there, standing, sitting, driving or anywhere.

I have a CBST that I keep in my vehicle for an XD 45 Compact. At some point, though, if I keep the gun, I'll replace it with a High Noon IWB of some description.
Personally, I always found the CBST to be too much of a "production" to put on and take off. I'm more of a "clip-n-go" kind of guy.
