While I always enjoy pictures of "New" Holsters, I also like to see them being worn. It helps me to see what it looks like on a belt, on a body!!
It carries high enough above the belt for easy draw access. It's still a tight fit on the pistol and I'm slowly loosening it up with practice draws. For now the holster stays tight on the belt, but a little tight on the gun too so I end up hiking my pants up as I draw
The wide spread wings displace the weight so I don't feel any downward pull. I won't say I forget it's there, but if I AM carrying I don't want to forget it!
I'm tall (6'5") so the length of the pistol isn't an issue for me. Even seated, the grip frame just comes up to the bottom of the ribcage and the barrel stops at the hip point.
The only thing I've noticed is more of an issue with the pistol than with the holster. It may be time to switch to a ring hammer, because in Condition One the hammer spur reaches up above the body shield and pokes me in the side. I'm a big fan of that shield, protecting the pistol and I from each other-no rubbing and no sweat damage.
It looks good! How do you like the clips??
Realleycat: I like clips in general over belt loops because in CA I have to be careful to be VERY concealed and I find the black clips are less obtrusive on a black belt. Plus, the design of this holster is that the clips can be moved to make give three diiferent options for carry: OWB, IWB, or IWB Tuckable.
These clips seem very thick and sturdy, a lot heavier than ones I've gotten on other makers' holsters.

Is that a custom color ? You mentioned Cordovan, but I thought cordovan was a dark red/brown ?
Um, wow, nice holster. I have been waiting for two Triskels since Oct of 2006. If you have yours and orderd it this March I must be lost in the ordering process. I tried to email Mark a couple times without a reply so I figured he was just busy.
How do you know if you are still on the list?
Very good looking rig. I like the color. Wear with pride.
I got my Triskel last Monday, the 19th. I ordered sometime this past summer, possibly on or around July 12th. If I'm counting right, that's just slightly over 4 months, which really surprised me. I was expecting a much longer wait. Maybe mine was the same model as someone else's (4 1/4" 1911), or maybe there was some other reason mine got done so soon.
As was stated before, it is a really comfortable holster, and it's molded to the gun better than any other holster I've seen. The thumb safety molding is especially deep, so there is no chance of the safety moving while it's in the holster. My holster does have some very minor flaws, but they have no effect on fit or function and I won't be able to tell once the holster starts to show some wear. I really enjoy the unique design, and I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of it.
For those of you still waiting, it's worth the wait. I hope yours gets there soon. :)
Yes, the Triskel's very nice. I've had mine for several months now. I bought one from a Forum member because I wanted something I could carry my LW Commander sized 1911 OWB most of the time, but be able to carry it IWB if I wanted to.
It's worked well & the F&F is excellent. Mine's the same color, too.
