    Anyone have experience with "Kholster"?

    I just got an e-mail link to a company called Kholster that appears to make a holster similar to Crossbreed. Owner seemed like a great guy and responded really quickly.

    Anyone have any experience with this company? I want to order a couple of holsters, but would feel better knowing if anyone has actually used their products. Any thoughts?

    Thumbs up Kholster Crescent

    (Long time lurker but I felt that I had to register & answer this question.)

    I have a Kholster Crescent for my gun. When it came I wasn't too sure since it looked like a very flat sheet of leather. I put it on and wore it ALL the time to allow it to form to my hip & gun. That took a week or so. I've had it for a couple of months now and it's fully formed and very comfortable. (I'm wearing it now because it was easier to leave it on than remove it after getting back home - can barely feel it.)

    I've been very happy with the quality of the holster and find that I almost never use any of the other ones any more. Also, the fact that you can cut the leather as desired and not kill the warranty was a big selling point. I trimmed the bottom of mine to make the points of the crescent a bit shorter since I moved the clips so the holster rides a bit lower (moved them up).

    PLUG: If you want order & put the code "11-2284" in the special instructions you'll get 10% off and I'll get a discount on the next one I buy. (Thinking of a L handed one for use in the small of the back or one as a gift.) If this isn't appropriate, I'll edit this last part back out.

    It looks to be infinitely adjustable.....a big plus!

    I have had one for several weeks...I paid $35 bucks for it in December. The only problem I had was the kydex was too tight. I heated it with a hair dryer to loosen it. I carry a PT145 in it everyday...no problems so far. There are probably better holsters out there, but I highly recommend kholster for someone looking for a low cost effective holster.

    I have one for my 9mm Sigma and love it! I haven't ben able to carry it anywhere other than my home because my CPL hasn't come yet, but so far I love it! I will be trimming mine once Jimmy sends me some shorter clips(which he is doing for free)

    Without a doubt It's the best $35 dollars I've ever spent on a gun product. If the crossbred is better I can't imagine how.

    kemar, what position do you wear your's in? I've been trying mine in the 4-5 o'clock position but was wondering if anyone's found a different position they like.

    They are a blatant, and IMO inferior rip-off of the very highly rated around these parts, Crossbreed SuperTuck.

    Get the Crossbreed, you won't be sorry.

    I have a kholster xd45 left hand and just ordered a crossbreed MP45 right hand. the kholster feels good but I did trim off a little of the cowhide with tin snips. I bought the crossbreed in horse hide and will compare....will post a report in about a month.

    I wear mine slightly forward of 3:00 (2:30-ish). The butt of my subcompact rides directly above the seam running down the side of my leg. Since I'm not as sleek and trim as I used to be that seems to hide everything very well. I mentioned that I moved the hooks so that the rig rides a bit lower and only a minimum sticks out.

    One other thing I trimmed was the spot where the magazine release would hit. I took an exacto and trimmed a small hole with beveled edges so that there would be no pressure on the button no matter what.

    Care to go into a little detail? I'm just curious.

    From what I can gather, the guy who started KHolster took Crossbreed's design almost verbatim, made the leather round instead of rectangular/rounded and was selling it as his creation and idea all along.

    I think there is litigation in progress from Mark at CB.

    It also appears to have MUCH more adjustability, I have a Crossbreed & have only seen pictures of the Kholster so that is how I am basing my opinion.
