This is a discussion on MIKA pocket holster within the Defensive Carry Holsters & Carry Options forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; If you only could purchase one, would you get a round cut or square cut?...
If you only could purchase one, would you get a round cut or square cut?
For me, square cut and with a cover flap (so it prints more like a wallet).

Square for cargo pants which have the wider pockets, and the round for chino or dress pants.
I have both and find that I change depending upon what pants I am wearing.
Get both, they are cheap enough.

I only want to order one first to see if I will like it.
I am going to get the round cut since I all ready have a square cut pocket holster.
Edit: Just ordered.
I just ordered three. At that price they are cheaper that a box of quality rounds.
Not 5 minutes after ordering, Bob Mika called, chatted and confirmed the order!
Well then, that is that.
Make sure you give the holster some time before you judge it. When I got my first Mika, I wasnt to impressed out of the box. It looked a little crude and wasnt near as pretty as some of my leather. After I broke it in, its great and one of my favorite carry options. If your more go rather than show type of person, you'll like the Mika.
Yup, he'll give you a call. He's a nice guy and will do his best to make sure you get what you want.

Just got off the phone with him. I like his design philosophy.
I ordered a round one from Mika. When he called, he mentioned that he was about 8 weeks behind. I've heard nothing but good comments so I don't mind waiting for a quality product.
At $18 bucks a piece, I ordered both!

If I had to choose, it would be the Round Cut. Never tried the square, but the round cut just looks like a better fit (in a standard size front pocket).

They are great deals if they suit you. I find them too bulky to use in my pocket, but that is just me and my dress.
