Can you help us narrow that down?
Kydex, leather, price range...

I like my Ahern pancake three slot holster for OWB carry G17 (used to be G22 also)...comfortable, conformable, smooth, yet simple. I've used this holster in competition before. The DeSantis Scabbard is another nice one for me, but not in the Glocks yet. I carry my P220 in one. Generally, I don't put as much of my assets in the OWB holsters since I can't carry openly here in my state (yet). Interestingly enough, I don't carry the large frame Glocks in anything but an OWB holster. My IWB limits are the compacts for good reason. You might realize that I've never paid more than $85 for any of my holsters, and my best one OWB would be a Mitch Rosen Upper Limit for my G27. In the way of OWB holsters exclusively, I do like the Fobus paddles. Kydex....wave of the future and here now. It's what I use on the range and for matches. Lightweight and ultimately quick draws from these holsters. If you want to keep up with the Jones', and spend your ammo money on holsters, then don't listen to me. I'm just telling you what works for me, and you won't have to break the bank or fill your dresser drawer with seldom used holsters. I go for functional in holsters just like I do pistols for carry. I employ the KISS principle for both and it's never failed me yet. Good luck and best wishes.
I am extremely partial to my Brommeland Presentation Grade Def-Cons. I have one for each of the three Glocks I own. They are extremely difficult to obtain, with a long wait time, and expensive as well. Despite that, they are my all-time favorite:
Good luck with your search. You'll get a lot of different ideas here, virtually all of them valid.

When I had a Glock 22, I carried it in a Galco Avenger. It held it snug and close to the kidney area. One of the best OWB holsters I own.

The best.....it's a purekustom Black Ops. A convertible so it can be worn IWB also.

Just a few weeks ago I recieved my "Cuda" from Simply Rugged. Couple of weeks lead time, and this thing hugs better than my IWB! I highly suggest one! Leather Gun Holster, Concealed carry holster - Simply Rugged, Proudly made in Alaska
Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
I've used most of 'em, in my years of seeking perfection....for ME.
My favorite IWB = Milt Sparks VM2 (Comptac MTAC a close second).
My favorite OWB = FIST #12 or #9 Close-cropped (UBG Bonneville a close second, and will be trying out a pair of Sparks I-BAKS soon).
If price is an issue, I have a Galco "Speed Scabbard" that works beautifully. Holds my G21sf close to the body.
But I'd like to get a fancy Private Shop Holster, so...

I like my Blackhawk Serpa for my G23. Reasonably priced and the gun fits really nicely inside. The detent is nice too b/c it gives you a little piece of mind that the gun will stay in place until needed. That and it comes with a belt and paddle adapter, so you can change as needed. It's also adjustable for cant.
I got the faux carbon fiber finish and matching mag holder.
