    Does anyone have any experience with Winthrop Holsters?

    Looking to buy one for my Glock 23. Anyone have any experience with them? They seem to sell on e-bay and amazon quite a bit but with very few reviews.

    Never even heard of them but looking at their website, their products look pretty good. I'd be interested to hear what your thoughts are if you buy one. Let us know how it works for you.

    I bought a Winthrop pancake on ebay a while back. it is not as stiff as a new Don Hume, or DeSantis and I got dye on a white t-shirt as I was drawing my glock. It is only fair to say that it was used, ANIB condition.

    I was thinking the reinforcement at the mouth looks a little weak. I like how Milt Sparks and a few others use kydex to keep the mouth open for easy reholstering. Nothing more annoying than a holster that collapses as soon as you draw your weapon.

    I bought one for my PM9. Had a miscommunication on "clips" and Mr W took the time to make it right and was extremely cordial. The holster was first rate, not as pretty as a Milt Sparks, but I got it in 3 weeks and it cost $55, not $125 and wait for 3 months. I will buy more.

    I have an IWB for my CZ P-07 from Winthrop. Outstanding comfort and quality. Very easy to deal with and customer service is top notch. You will not find a better value anywhere. $55.00, you can't beat it!

    I had one for a Sig 238. The holster was very comfortable, priced reasonably and it looked nice. The mouth seemed as though it was not reinforced, and one of the snaps came out of the leather, making the holster sag on one strap while I was out and about. Sounds as though the vendor would have made it right, send a new snap or whatever, but I ended up selling the pistol anyway.

    I have 3 Winthrop IWB holsters. One each for a Sig P226/229, Sig P230, and a Para Ordnance .45 LDL. All are very comfortable. The flap on the back protects the weapon from perspiration. They fit close and are very concealing. I have no problem drawing and re holstering while keeping my eyes on target. I would recommend these well built holsters to everyone.

    I carry an XDs in an OWB pancake from Winthrop. Its hard to beat the quality for the price and turnaround. My next choice is UBG when you want good quality for the money. I am currently waiting on a rig from Lobo.

    I recently purchased the Winthrop Belt Slide Holster and I personally think it is an excellent holster for my XD. I had been using either the Fobus or XD Gear Polymer Paddle Holsters which are excellent as well, but for all day carry, the Winthrop Belt Slide Holster seems a bit more comfortable and provides less printing when being worn concealed. It is very well made when it comes to durability from what I can tell since only having mine for a couple weeks. I also like the fact that this one holster allows me to carry different types of handguns all with the same holster.

    I have bought from them and the holster was okay, I don't remember if I still have it or sold it because it was a owb holster and I don't or haven't done the owb carry.

    I had one for my M&P full-size.... It was a great holster for the money. No issues with it and it work well. I had a snapper style and my only complaint was the snaps were not one way. Other r Han that it was a very well crafted holster for an exceptional price.

    I have a Winthrop IWB for my 1911. It's the one with two belt snaps, and I found they were coming undone. They were kind enough to send me a set of replacement snaps with the "pull-the-dot" directional feature. That solved the problem completely.

    I honestly can't remember if they charged me for them or not, but even if so, the cost was not enough to make me remember...

    The holster is well-made and comfortable, if I wanted another one I would got with them again.
