    Holster help (Kimber Ultra Carry II)

    Greetings everyone. First post, and new to concealed carry. I am looking for a holster to fit my Kimber crimson ultra carry II and I am a bit lost. There seems to be a sea of options, and for some reason every website looks like it was made in 2001 with angelfire. I currently have a Sticky holster, but didn't really feel comfortable with it while I was at work. I am a woodworker, bending over and moving around quite a bit. I would prefer to carry IWB on my back, as I carry my primary life saver (my tape measure) on my side. Any advice and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I am 5'10", 185lbs and athletic build if that makes a difference. Thank you.

    I know I am biased but I think I have a fix for you. My dad carries a full size 1911 over his hip with my holster. If you look at the "how to" section you can watch the video of how it works.

    You could try this holster in the between the 4&5 o clock position.

    Just don't wear any gun directly behind the spine. Spinal damage is a real concern if you were to fall, especially in an active job like you have (or a confrontation).

    As a fellow professional woodworker I can relate.

    I carry a Walther PPQ

    In a MaxTuck IWB holster from White Hat Holsters Concealed Handgun Holsters and Holster Parts & Accessories - White Hat

    I carry at about 3:00 - 3:30 and my tape measure gets hooked on my pocket.

    I have no issues with bending or moving around while carrying. The holster is very comfortable and does not get in the way.

    One of the great things about the MaxTuck is the kydex can be changed out for under $20 if you ever change your carry gun.

    thanks the replies and tips everyone. right now the cover six is the most appealing to me. the price is right and I like the versatility of being able to ewitch from IWB to OWB depending on my preference.

    My EDC is an Ultra Carry II. I have oodles of holsters depending on the way I dress or need for the day. The ones I use the most are:

    Versa Max 2

    HBE Pro TL Tuckable

    MTAC

    55BN

    I used to carry the same pistol in a Brommeland Max-Con V. I would forget the small-of-back carry for several reasons, and go with a 3:00-4:00 position.

    yeah with some adjusting today the 4:00 position seems to be the sweet spot for me.

    I just ordered a bianchi model 120 covert option for my ultra carry 2.
    I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
