I purchased a IWB holster and OWB mag pouch for my G26 from Nick Matthews Leather and wanted to do a well deserved review. Although, I am late, I wanted to wear it for a while before submitting. This has become my favorite EDC holster, beating out my Crossbreed.
Nick was great at communicating with me on what I was looking for. He even told me there would be a delay on the mag pouch due to the upcoming holiday weekend. However, I was pleasantly surprised when he contacted me and told me he would be able to start work earlier than planned.
I received the holster and mag pouch within 2 weeks (I’m 99% certain) and was very impressed with the quality and workmanship. The holster was tight as usual, but broke in nicely after a day or so of wearing them.
I recently returned from a 2 week vacation which involved driving approx. 11 hours each way. I wore my pistol the entire time in the car and while on vacation and never had a problem with the holster being uncomfortable or bulky.
I wore light t-shirts and never had any problems with concealment. The only thing I noticed, when I got out of the car, my shirt would catch on the belt straps. I DO NOT think this is an issue with the holster, but with my choice of shirts.
As you can see in the photo’s, I’m a little on the “hefty” side and still had no problems with concealment. I’m very impressed with the holster and mag pouch and I recommend Nick if you are looking for a high quality custom holster for a great price.
That's a nice looking holster.

Looks good! I'm looking for something like a high rise pancake holster for my xdm 45 and also a double mag pouch (uses 13rd xd45 mags).

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
Good review. Thanks for sharing.
How are the snaps? Hold well? Do they snap harder than necessary?

Thanks for the review. I always have trouble with any snaps for awhile.
Can you elaborate why it beats out your Crossbreed? Just curious as I'm getting ready to order a holster and am still undecided. Thanks.
Definitely screams, "Quality!"...nice looking leather.

Looks very nice. I don't even use the snaps on any of my holsters, I just thread the belt through.

Nice porn, Thanks, I needed that.

Great looking leather, congrats! I had never heard of this maker, but his work sure looks nice.
Nice review on a good looking holster. How is it for one handed reholstering? Have you had any die transfer? Thanks
