    Never had one but FIST is highly regarded stuff... I kinda like the K7.

    I've never owned a Fist IWB but I have owned a few of their OWB holsters. Not sure if you know this but most of their leather models can be had in kydex as well. Just add a K to the model number. My favorites are the #7K and #9K.

    I have two #1k fist holsters.
    1 for my S&W JFrame642 & 1 for my Glock27.
    Both are excellent,confortable & very concealable.
    The #1K is a no cant holster and can be worn strong side or cross draw.
    Because of a shoulder injury I use them as cross draw.
    The Ultra thin Kydex adds next to nothing in thickness.
    The fist service is great--and I now have a #1K on order for my S&W M66.
    Give them a try.

    I have two different styles, both in the waistband. ONLY thing I recommend is make sure you order or it comes with the body protector. It’s between the gun and you body and helps stops the corners of the pistol from digging into your side and keeps the moisture from your body rusting your weapon. They work and feel great. +1 on the ultra thin kydex.

    I have 2 dozen Fist hosters...they know me by name when I call their office...I really like their quality, prices, and quick service.

    I probably have 6 or so kydex holsters, the rest are in leather.
    I have the #1 and #1A in both kydex and leather...I prefer the #1A (with a cant)...kydex works, but leather is a little more comfortable. OMO

    You won't be sorry with the quality.

    Stay armed...use Fist holsters...stay safe!

    Don't forget about their hybrid options. I recently got a K5 pocket holster for my PM9 w/ultrasuede. Very nice pocket holster indeed. It's my favorite pocket holster and I've had a few good ones. The ultrasuede actually helps the holster grip my pocket some and the lady at FIST said that it may help with any possible cracking of the kydex long termwise. It doesn't add much if any (noticeable) to the thickness either. I bought a used standard K5 to compare and I prefer the hybrid.

    Very nice people, excellent products that are priced nicely and you don't have to wait forever. I'm a believer.

    I have a Fist #1A and is comfortable to wear. Takes a long time to get it worn in, I prefer Kydex though.

    I don't see the Hybrid option on their website. I will probably call them tomorrow and place an order.

    Here you go:

    The last link is the ultrasuede. I'm not sure if it's technically part of their hybrid line but it is similar in that they cover the ultra thin kydex with ultrasuede.

    I think I'm going to order the 1Ak tomorrow. I've been looking for the thinnest holster possible for my wide load G30sf and the fist kydex looks like my best bet.

    Thanks for the Links. I'm not sure how I missed the Hybrid page.

    I too will be ordering the 1 AK tomorrow. But, I'm still not sure what the best choice will be for an OWB. I think I would like a holster to ride high and close.

    I have been wearing a FIST #1 kydex with a 15 deg cant and

    body shield (a $5 add on) and I liken it to Mexican carry with the

    trigger covered. They will give you any cant at no extra charge.

    The price is very reasonable and they are great people to work with.
