    OWB for XD 45?

    While I have 2 IWB holsters on order (both custom, I decided to try both types), I decided that I would also like an OWB holster. Since the gun is reasonably new, I'm not seeing a lot of holsters specifically for the XD 45. The one that comes with the gun just doesn't hold the gun tightly enough to my body. Perhaps the fact that I've gained enough weight to have my own gravitational pull might be the reason. Any suggestions on a good holster off the rack?

    I have a D. Hume 721 OT for the XD45 and M&P40. Both fit fine. Also, check out http://www.crossbreedholsters.com Mark has some cool OWB holsters.

    I have two GALCO's for OWB. One black without restraining strap and the other chestnut brown with restraining strap.

    If my K&D Eagle Defender is anything to go by - the XD version should hold gun tight in like an OWB. http://www.kdholsters.com/ The pic on the site, of the Eagle Defender, is in fact mine!

    This is mine with the 226 SIG - sorry about crappy belt I had on that day - even with that notice how tight it holds.

    No matter what holster you buy if you don't get a good gun belt to go with it you may never be satisfied with your carry holster.

    I like the BlackHawk Serta holster for my XD Tactical. I use it with the paddle set-up.

    Ive got a Desantis OWB rig for my XD.45. It has worked really well so far.

    FWIW I carry my XD45 in a FIST #43 which can be worn either as an IWB or an OWB holster. (see pic) Works terrific either way and I recomend it highly.
