    Both. Just depends. My favorite is the Crossbreed Quickclip.

    I'd use either, but I've never found a kydex holster which conceals on me as well as the leather ones I own. Maybe it's because I'm skinny and the leather curves better, but I doubt it has anything to do with the material per se; probably much more the specific holsters I've tried. I do like my hard horsehide holsters, which are sort of kydex-like.

    But I keep an open mind; luckily I have stuff that works and don't need to shop for anything new. When I do, I'll consider anything on the market regardless of material.

    I use both, but prefer the aesthetics of leather.

    I use leather as it conforms to the gun and the shooter carrying it for greater comfort.
