My favorite is the HF-1 from Tucker Gunleather.

I am really fond of the Milt Sparks I-Bak,it is completely molded to the outside,which solves the age old problem associated with pancake holsters,of the holster collapsing when the pistol is drawn.
This allows the holster to be extremely thin without the need for a reinforced mouth,and very comfortable due to the flat back.
The I-Bak and a full size Glock,are a match made in heaven.

Awaiting my CHL, I was getting very frustrated as to finding a concealed carry method that was comfortable and that actually concealed my weapon. Then I purchased a gently used Glock 27 that came with a Com-Tac Minotaur holster. It is the open model that accomodates my Glock 22 as well. Finally, a comfortable holster that I was really able to conceal (your shirtail can tuck in between the gun/holster and the belt clips). The regular clips work well, but then you can see them hanging on the belt. Mine has velcro on the outside of wider clips. I've purchased a couple of BlackHawk CQC Pistol Belts and plan to take them to the local shoe repair to have velcro sewn inside the belt. This will allow me to hang the clips over my pants with them fastened to the belt by velcro. Now my frustrations have abated.
At the moment the only OWB holster that I have is the Don Hume 721 OT. I love it and it carries my G23C close to the body and is comfortable all day long.
I do have a OWB holster from Barber Leather Works on order so I can't wait to see how that fits. If it's anything like his IWB fit that will be my new favorite.
+1 On the Don Hume 721 OT. Looks great, fits great, excellent quality and reasonably priced. What's not to like?
When I carried a Glock I found that SIDEARMOR holsters were really hard to beat. Well made, secure on the belt, and they have terrific customer service

The best I have found after 14 years is the Bianchi Carryloc, have them for a few of my carry guns, YMMV.

There are too many "bests" in this thread. Holsters are personal preference. Materials, style, maker, cant, everything. I think 95% of holsters made today have too much cant to them.
If you've got the coin I'd look at Kramer. Other good ones are FIST, Mitch Rosen. Some Galco stuff is alright, Don Hume 721OT seems to get a lot of good reviews as well and it's affordable.
Good thread. I'm interested in an OWB for my Glock G33 also. Mine would be used a lot while hog hunting as a backup sidearm. Is an OWB a good choice here or should I go with a shoulder holster? I mostly carry it IWB now in either a FIST K4A or Brommeland Max Con V but an OWB would be helpful when I don't need maximum concealment. The Def-Con and Laredo Defender look good but are they the best for my hunting needs?

I will say as others have also stated the Don Hume brand is quality leather at a good price. Not the best quality out there but hard to beat for the money. These guys linked below are great to deal with and sell most all Hume products at the best prices on the web I have found. I live 5 miles from their little store in Cary NC and I drop buy and shoot the breeze with them every now and then. Real great guys to deal with.
Apparently I am on a personal quest to own at least one holster made by every maker know to man........its another form of firearms related sickness. These are just the ones I am playing with now.... many more hidden from the wifes view!
When I leave the home port:

Have you give the Galco FLETCH High Ride holster. I have used one for over 12 yrs. I also sometimes use the Blackhawk Serpa holster but it does not conceal as well as the Galco.
