    Currently have 3 Kydex holsters (Comp-Tac IWB) but I have been looking for MONTHS for a good leather paddle and a "high-ride" pancake type scabbard holster.

    These are my first Kydex holsters and I luv 'em much.....but I want a couple higher riding leathers for more options....that and I just need an OWB.

    Looks like leather by a long shot.

    What other answer would you expect from a holster maker (leather holsters of course!)? I also use mostly leather.

    Kydex all the way baby.

    I own a couple of leather holsters but I hate them. Kydex is so much more rigid, doesn't stain if something gets on it, holds the gun so much more securely and to top it off, doesn't cost as much a leather either.

    My favorite, the one I have on right now and almost all the time, my Blackhawk CQB Serpa for my Glock 23. Comfortable, secure, and it will last a life time. What more could I ask for?

    I'm still using nylon the most but in the market for leather. I have a kydex (Fobus) but don't seem to use it much.

    I perfer leather unless out scrambling in the thick brush.

    In the brush, a covered Bianchi holster in nylon keeps those Manzanita twigs, sticks, berrys and dirt out of my pistol.

    LeatherNeck1,

    Man, your holsters look freakin beautiful!!! If those were mine I'd hang them so I can look and smell them from time to time.

    Sorry, I'm a holster junkie! I mean "LEATHER" holster junkie!
