    Moleskin has its own adhesive backing.
    Makes my leather holster more comfy, and helps with sweat in summer.
    I don't wear undershirts.

    I want to try this with my other CTAC....applied directly on the kydex

    When undershirtless I stick with (pun intended) my MTAC or an OWB. Like many here though I'm wearing an undershirt most of the time.

    los, Nice touch with the modified STuck. Did you just use some heavy duty scissors to cut the leather? What position do you wear you supertuck? I prefer 3 oclock. This is most comfortable but sometimes harder to conceal. 5 oclock is my second choice, since 4 oclock tends to make the the grip to print too much.

    An undershirt does an awesome job of wickin moisture...even in heat and humidity. I have a friend that wears two shirts year round.

    No. I used a standard type utility knife. Here's a link to the Thread I posted regarding the modification...

    My comfy zone strong-side carry is at about 3:30. Appendix strong side just at about 1:30.

    For regular day-in, day-out IWB concealment, kydex is yucky... (OMO, of course; I concede that kydex does have its merits and its own applications at which it excels - But IWB is not one of them, at least not for me).

    Personally, I perfer an undershirt on a hot day.
    If you notice all the Hispanic workers that work outside in the hot sun usually have long sleeves on with undershirts under them.
    I agree with this poster and feel cooler with undershirt and loose overshirt that keeps the sun off my skin.

    Dont forget about the "Drunken T-shirt". It's no shirt on at all.
    Bare chested and drunk.

    Ever notice all the white guys on "Cops" that are drunk are shirtless?

    I took my kydex IWB holster (appendix carry) and a scrap of sheepskin and some duct tape... and it is perfect. I figured I would have to replace the sheepskin often, but it's been six months and no odor or dirt at all. It does make the holster look really strange, though.
