How comfortable IWB is depends a lot on what holster you are using. As I right this I'm wearing a Crossbreed Supertuck and it is very comfortable. I also have a Isotope 7 that is very comfy. My first IWB was the DeSantis Cozy Partner, and it was not comfortable at all. Before you give up on IWB, consider the difference that the right holster can make.
Mine is convertible.

Wow cool thread, I was wondering about this also.
I sometimes wear an IWB, OWB like this. I have some old pants from my pre-carry days that fit me well, but not with an IWB. I'm too cheap to buy new pants so... sometimes I'm stuck.
I still find that this method works out better than most of my OWB rigs.
I've been doing this. I just snap it so it's b/t my pant and belt. Nice tight fit.
I do like wearing my OWB leather holsters with the belt outside the holster, it holds the gun closer, but not against me to gouge and rough up my side.
I have an Infidel from Comp-tac that I bought used from someone on here. At the time I only had the MTAC and wanted something I could just stick the gun in a holster and slide into my pants if I were going to walk the dog or something. It has a single clip on the back (picture below must be a new design with the strut too) but the guy also sent these leather belt loops I could attach. Never gave it much thought till this thread. I am go to it with the loops and the clip as an OWB. Right now I took off all the attachments and use it as a pocket holster when wearing cargo shorts / pants.
Cammo girl brings up a good point. I only have a few holsters but whenever I get one I always wish I had gotten the color that I didn't order. Holster buyers remorse??
Interesting. I've been looking into potentially buying a convertible holster(unfortunately the budget is anywhere near getting it soon, but can still plan ahead!), but my question would be when your wearing it OWB, do the IWB clips just hang there or ? Does anyone mind posting a pic of a convertible in use as an OWB?
Convertibles are a nice idea, but I would rather not have to take things on and off my holster....if you can afford an IWB and an OWB, I think you will find it the easiet way to go....
