    Kydex vs Leather

    Which is more comfortable to carry OWB? I'm currently looking for something that feels good against my hip for a Kahr CM9. I currently carry my Sig P238 in a Galco Stinger holster & even though it is a little loose it feels pretty comfortable to me. Most times I don't even know it's there.

    I like Safariland ALS holsters when it comes to synthetics, but they don't conceal that well. For concealed OWB I prefer leather.

    Any thoughts on a Brigade Gun Leather M-3 Enforcer Holster?

    My Stinger for the PM9 was really loose (like drop out loose), so I went with another Silent Thunder, very comfortable.
    Kydex exterior, premium Herman Oak on the inside for a smooth and silent draw and adjustable retention.

    Which is better between the silent thunder & STX? Might have to try a few with all these holsters out there.

    The STX is owb, that's the main difference, I prefer it usually. But the iwb one is very comfortable as well.

    I thought the silent thunder is a OWB too. Might have looked at it wrong.

    They have quite a few variations, I may be thinking of a different one,

    Do not like plastic guns or holsters, all my holsters are leather.
