    Go for both, the Comptac MTAC. Comfort of leather, draw speed of kydex.

    I've tried a lot of nice holsters and find the MTAC to be the absolute best of both worlds.

    It will adjust to any height/cant you want as well.

    For CC, my holsters are leather. For competition, kydex.

    I have had and used both kydex and leather. I have found the leather more comfortable for all day carry. For your consideration, I have found kydex is cheaper and quicker to get than a quality leather. It seems like my kydex is spending more and more time on the shelf. Good luck in your search!

    Each has a purpose...
    I prefer leather inside my belt, and kydex in my pocket.
    Leather holsters are far more comfortable when used IWB. My Fist kydex pocket holster is secure, conceals the print, and makes for a quick release. OMO

    Crossbreed makes a leather/kydex for that Sig. I specifically emailed them about it, as I am looking at getting one.

    +1 on the Crossbreed. Very comfortable, and hides my SR9 well.

    High Noon Holsters make very good leather IWB holsters. They do have some models that they stock and others that are custom made. I really like mine.

    FIST Inc. makes hybrid holsters, Leather outside, kydex inside. Never used them but the concept looks neat.
    In God we trust, everyone else keep your hands where I can see them.

    I love good leather craftsmanship and leather won't produce wear spots on your gun. I prefer leather then fell in love with the Serpa holsters until I started seeing wear spots. Now I am back to leather. The secure "click" of holstering a kydex is neat, but it doesn't smell like leather.
