    MTAC VS Crossbreed holster

    I currently have the MTAC holster and am happy with it. Does anyone own both? I'm curious as to what the differences are between them. Which one is more comfortable and why? Which one is better suited for being tuckable? What are the differences in the ease of pulling out the weapon? They look nearly identical in workmanship.

    I have both and prefer the MTAC. There was another thread here that covered the same topic. I posted more details in that thread.

    I have both....I prefer the M-Tac for the following reasons:
    the clips on M-tac slide over the belt and are easier to remove than the J-clips of the Crossbreed.
    The Crossbreed feels too wide to me.
    The M-tac allows you to buy new kydex inserts for to switch off to a different gun.

    The only advantage the Crossbreed has is a more reasonable price.

    I suppose, but $15 doesn't seem like *that* much more.

    I have both as well and concur with bzdog. The MTAC has a much nicer finish and is narrower than the Crossbreed. The clips are also more substantial with a greater variety. One nice feature of the MTAC is that you can purchase additional kydex shells to fit different guns.

    If I had it to do over, I would only own the MTAC.

    I have both and prefer the Crossbreed over the MTAC. Sure the fininsh is nicer on the MTAC - but who cares - it will be hiding. You can order any style of clip that you prefer on either one - so don't let that be a factor. The MTAC is too stiff because of their shell swap out. They have to utilize more material (both leather & Kydex) to achieve this. This makes the MTAC a little less comfortable and less concealable.

    I am close to choosing the mtac myself, however, what do current owners recommend concerning the clips? Standard, J-clips?? Thanks

    I received my Mtac a couple of weeks ago. I have the standard clips, and like them. I think they have re-designed the clips in the newer holsters(such as mine) and they are even better.
    Only took a week for delivery.

    If you are tucking - then go with the V or velcro clips. They are stealth and hold very well. I had no luck with the C clips. If you are not tucking - standard should work just fine.

    Well my 2c is I like the Crossbreed a lot better !!!!!!!!!!! in fact I sold my Mtac as soon as I could. Once you pull the gun out of the holster it collaps and then you have to fight the gun back in.
    The Crossbreed does not do that...

    I have a M-Tac and overall I'm happy with it. However If I was in the market for a holster for my everyday carry gun I would not hesitate to get the K&D Dakota Defender.
    K&D Holsters | Custom Gun Leather and Shooting Accessories

    The one thing I don't like about the M-tac is the kydex. It dose not offer the flexibility that I wish it had when carrying at 3:00. The Dakota Defender is all leather and it seems to me would offer more flexibility and comfort all the while costing $10.00 less.
    Would I replace my M-tac right now? No, I am overall happy with it and the customer service from them is incredible. The K&D just seems like it would be a better fit for my build.

    The C-clips work great for me. They hold tight and do not pop-up or ride up on the belt as some have experienced. I am sitting in my recliner with it on right now. No complaints. I have a decent belt, 5.11 1.5" black dress belt, nothing special made (soon oh mighty belt-man,i keep putting it off) and it works for me. With my arms at my side, the tops of the clips are covered, so there is just a little lip at the bottom visible with my shirt tucked in. I clip my cell phone at the first clip, so it is virtually invisible and I don't care about the rear clip. I will be buying a new kydex as soon as I pull the trigger on a new XD, and I will definitely be buying the standard clips, the longer skinny ones.

    I need to get some new pics w/ the 5.11 on...The belt in this pic is a 1.25" belt.
