    Quick question, please help!

    Trying to decide between a Crossbreed SuperTuck Deluxe or a leather IWB holster made by zlogonje leathers, www.zlogonje.com

    Question is, I am 6' even, about 165lbs, waist size 31, so if a holster is too big or bulky its relatively noticeable with the jeans I wear. Which will conceal better or is smaller? i.e. less width, idc about weight.

    Thanks!

    Personally, I would recommend a black mamba by concealment solutions. It is similar to the crossbreed supertuck, but better, IMO. Mine shipped next day, and it has a lifetime warranty. Best $69 I ever spent on a holster, and I have a ton of holsters. Concealment Solutions - Custom made concealment holsters

    Also, I wear size 34 jeans. I can conceal a Glock 19 without printing by just wearing a t-shirt for a cover garment.

    I'm a fan of Lenwood leather. Have a post on here about them.
    My training partner has a crossbreed holster and the attention to detail is not as good as with Lenwood holters.

    I understand there are a lot of option out there for leather/kydex IWB holsters, but my question is if they are more easily concealed that a strictly ALL leather IWB holster like the zlogonje.com holsters?

    When I first read your question, I knew there would be a good number of people telling you about the holsters they carry firearms in.

    I can only answer your question in terms of the Crossbreed. It is, in my opinion, crudely made and ugly, but very comfortable and functional. I have several, and like them very much.

    That said, my most recent purchase was an Old Faithful Holster Kit. For $39 the holster is a hybrid (very similar to Crossbreed) but much nicer leather, and the holster gives you retention adjustment, where the Crossbreed's kydex is just riveted to the backing. Old Faithful is height and cant adjustable also. In my opinion these features make it much more desirable.

    I am 5'11" 165. I carry a G23 or 22 in it everyday at 4:00 and it is very comfortable. I have tried many IWB holsters and by far, this one is the best for me.







    If you want to carry between 3:00 and 6:00... I HIGHLY recommend the Crossbreed.
    Good luck in your search!

    I'll have to go along with Freedomofchoice. The old faithful is light years ahead of the rest of the crowd of hybrid leather and kydex IWB holsters both in construction tecnique and materials. Get the level three kit and save a bunch. Anyone can assemble it as it is idiot proof.

    Looks like im going to go ahead and go with the Old Faithful as it sounds like its simply an improved version of the CrossBreed. I guess the all leather holsters are probably a bit thicker anyway which would make them harder to fit IWB. Thanks everyone!

    I'll put my vote in for Crossbreed. I own three of them. A supertuck for my M&P40, and minitucks for my PF-9 and SP101. There are those that say that CB isn't the nicest looking and they're right... but if you want something that's comfortable and functional, well, I rest my case.
