    Max-Con V vs In Cognito?

    So, I'm thinking about updating to a newer style holster and I've kinda narrowed it down to the Brommeland Max-Con V and the Garrity In Cognito IWB's. I'll be carring my Kimber Ultra CDP 2 in it. Any thoughts as to both of these holsters??? The cost doesen't matter as much as the comfort does. I also like the Sparks Versa Max 2 and Watchman 6 but I think I'm still leaning towards the first two choices.

    Both are excellent choices as Gary and Mark are 1st class makers. While I don't own anything made by Mark I do have a MaxCon for my 1911 and it's a very comfortable holster similar to Sparks VMII. IMO, you can't go wrong with either.

    Both are a excellent choice im carrying a MCV right now but i have had marks on order for awhile also for a different sized 1911 so eventually i will be able to tell you exactly to compare

    I have the Max-Con V for my XD. It's a great holster, and I'm happy to have it. Only downside was the wait, took 4 3/4 months. But, that includes Gary's back injury. Things may me better now as far as wait times. There was a 4 month wait time posted prominently on the web page when I ordered mine, but it's not there now. I would email Gary and ask him what the current wait time is. The holster is certainly excellent. I have no experiencethe other holser

    Well, I'll chime in here, not to plug my own stuff but to say if I wasn't making my own gear I'd probably be wearing a Max-Con V.
    You can't go wrong with Gary's stuff, despite the wait.

    Man, I do NOT want to sound like this has degenerated into a "mutual admiration society", but the reverse is true here as well. I would have no trouble at all wearing an Incognito (probably because it is so similar to a MCV )

    I have two MC-V's and love that holster, super comfortable and can wear it all day long no problem. I really wouldn't compare it to a VM-II though, the VM-II has the steel band at the mouth were as the MC-V does not and IMO without the steel band the MC-V is far more comortable IWB than anything else I've tried.

    I do also have a pair of IN-COGNITOS on order but can't comment on the comfort level, but as was stated. These two makers are top of the line and I feel you can't go wrong with either of them.

    Go with Brommeland!

    Hey guys thanks for the info. These 2 holsters are so much alike there prolly isn't that much difference. Just have to decide which one!

    Wow, you can feel the love in this thread!
    Gary and Mark, the holster foo is strong with the both of you! Great items....

    I have a MaxCon V and like it very much. In fact I just ordered one for my G23. (Once that gets in I think I may try one of those new Dakota Defenders from K&D. I seem to like collecting holsters.)

    Anyway, the answer to your problem is very easy. Buy both! Then you can figure out which one YOU like the best.

    The MaxCon V would be closer to the Watch Six from Milt Sparks than to their VM-II as neither the MCV nor the WS has a reinforced mouthband. I've had and worn the Watch Six and it's a fine holster but I personally prefer the MaxCon V as it's more stable, secure and comfortable - at least for my particular body type.

    I haven't had the chance to try Mark's gear yet but he's definitely on my "short list." No matter which of the three makers you choose you'll be getting top quality gear and I think you're making a good decision by going with an offset loop design - there simply ISN'T a more comfortable IWB holster design in my experience.

    Buy both holsters? Hmmmmmm, I think I'll just be getting one of them for now....

    I'm looking forward to them having the belt loops offset on the holster. I like the way my older Milt Sparks Executive Companion conceals but with the loops and reinforced band right over each other it is to thick. It also was made for my old Colt Commander and not my 3" Kimber, though it holds it tight.

    I carry an Ultra CDP in the Max Con V. I wouldn't have it any other way. Gary is a hell of a nice guy who makes IMO the best holster on the market. It is comfortable, and extremely stable and well made. When I buy my next 1911 I will be giving Gary a call for another.
