    IWB Pic request

    Hey y'all!

    Trying to decide on a new IWB for my M&P 45c. I have it narrowed down, based on price and reviews to the following:

    1. Atomic Dog
    2. Threat Solutions
    3. NTAC
    4. Concealed Technology
    5. Kholster

    So, does anyone have any of these that they can post pics of? I'm especially looking for pics taken from above the holster, ie, pics that show the "thickness" of each holster. Not the thickness of the kydex or leather necessarily, but more like, how much thicker than the weapon itself is the holster. Thanks in advance!

    Travis

    I'm interested in seeing these for this particular gun as well.

    HonorGuard,

    Have you given thought toward SHTF Gear?

    Here is a picture of the SHTF Gear vs the crossbreed. I know its not in the list, but I personally really like it.





    Here is one of just the gun, I don't have any showing the thickness, but any of the hybrid designs are going to be almost identical, They all use the same thickness of kydex I believe, so your only variable is the leather which will account for a maximum of a 1/32 variable.

    Here is one of just the SHTF Gear ACE-1



    I did a review of it here

    G32,
    Thanks for the pics, they're not on my list but I am never one to turn away pics of gear and guns, haha. I have heard of them, but they don't make a holster for my M&P 45c w/TLR-1 attached, otherwise they would be on my list.

    My biggest reason for wanting pictures is that I have never owned that "style" of IWB in all kydex. I currently carry the CompTac MTAC, which, of course, is a hybrid similar to the likes of CrossBreed and SHTF Gear. For my liking, it's insanely comfortable and I think the two main components to that comfort are it's leather backing (in reference to not being stabbed by a kydex sweat guard everytime I bend or twist), and it's low-profile/width. The only all-kydex holsters I have owned were the Galco Triton and a FrontLine IWB, both of which made it feel like I had a brick of government cheese strapped to my waist. Needless to say, my fear is that I spend how ever much I spend on an all-kydex holster again and it turns into another government cheese brick situation again...

    ah Yes, no TLR-1 would be an issue. I think one of the coolest is made by Secret City Holsters, He is is a sponsor on here. Have you considered them? Ha, sorry I wish I could actually provide what you asked for, but haven't had any experience with them. I understand your fear about a kydex holster, I feel the same way and thats why I haven't made the jump. Do any of those companies offer a guarantee like crossbreed or SHTF gear? Then maybe you could return it if it sucks.

    He makes them in all sorts of colors.

    I looked at Secret City and contacted him, but he doesn't currently have the capacity to create the holster I need (bummer). Most of the companies I have looked at carry a similar warranty/guarantee, so that is at least somewhat of a relief. It's going to be tough though, because with my Minotaur, I hated it for the first 6 months and then one day I put in on and I was like, hey, this holster is awesome! I think I'm going to just have to jump in feet first and go from there...*sigh*

    Can't go wrong with Kholster, Leather is a little thicker, clips stronger, more adjustable, thicker Kydex. Not bashing CBST, I've got one and it's great but my future IWBs will be Kholsters.

    I've got a shielded holster for my PT111. Love it. Waiting on a crossbreed for my TCP to compare it against.
