    Outside waist band Defenders on http://www.kdholsters.com might be worth a peek. The Cochise I think may serve nicely unless you want a smaller rig.

    Of course many of our esteemed holster makers can probably help too.

    Yep, Bud and Chris have got it covered.

    If you can't find an OWB from any of those guy's there ain't one made you will like.

    I see you asked this over on AR15 too. I can't help but tell you that those guys that say Galco makes great holsters have probably not tried a true custom holster before.
    Galco is okay, but there are holsters so much better and either close to the same price or marginally more expensive that I have to recommend to pass on Galco.

    I have a Alessi Bodyguard shoulder rig that I love. I just hate to have to wait sooooo long to get the OWB. I will probably order an OWB from Mr. Alessi...but I would like to have something that I can use now while I wait for the custom leather.

    well, in that case a Galco would be fine of course. Although I think (as already said) Nate from UBG can hook you up with something better than Galco IMO pretty quick, that would be my pick while waiting for a Alessi.

    Yep! Sure does.

    Also if you have time to spare - the holster links near top of page will give you IIRC now - about 140 choices to go browse

    Take a look at the Galco line. This is what my EDC,3" Kimber rides in. The Concealment series for those light/dress up(blue jeans) days. And the MX series for my training weapon, for those down and dirty days.

    I have never tried one of them high end,specialty shop,holsters. I could not bring myself to wait the time that they expected you to, for their product.

    Would also suggest that you get yourself a good belt. This is(IMO) half or your carring system.------

    Kirkpatrick Compact Under Cover

    Kirkpatrick in Laredo, Texas makes an OWB holster for short barrel 1911s that works well. It is called the Compact Under Cover, and I use one for my Colt Defender, similar to your Kimber Ultra. Here is a link and a picture:
