I am sure this has been covered but I am fairly new here.
I am looking into getting an IWB holster that I can wear at work. I dress business or business casual with tucked in shirt and slacks.
The 2 holsters that appeal to me are the Crossbreed supertuck and the Kholster. I will be carrying a PT145 most of the time.
How do these 2 compare. From appearance only, the Crossbreed looks like a better holster but I have not seen either in person. Does anyone have both and what are the pros and cons of each?

Not looking to start anything. If so, delete the thread. I just am looking for advice from ppl that own both.
Both are a molded piece of kydex, a piece of leather, and two belt clips.
Both secure a pistol the same.
It is now up to you to determine if you want to spend nearly twice as much on one or the other.
My opinion as the owner of a kholster is save your money. The crossbred is nice, but not nearly twice as nice.
The main differences between the two are:
-Finish - the crossbreed is dyed.
-Cost - the kholster is cheaper.
I own a kholster and honestly, can't see a reason to spend more money on an IWB that looks nicer. Its under your clothing, no one will see it.

check out the minotaur mtac too. i just did a lot of research on these iwb's too and ended up going the mtac route. don't think you can go wrong with either holster but i felt the mtac was a nicer option for a few different reasons.
If you do get the CB Supertuk get horsehide. I see you are from Arkansas and it gets humid and hot. Being from Florida I have the same conditions so whatever you go with get horsehide for moisture resistance and life span.
Having not worn the Kholster but seeing that it is similar in design I'm sure they are both comfortable. Looks like the Kholster is only about $20 cheaper. Who cares about $20 when you are with your holster 10-14 hours a day or longer. Kind of like buying a cheap mattress you spend 1/3 your life on.
Crossbreed also has a 100% return policy and lifetime warranty. They will also make modifications inexpensively.
I don't think you'd go wrong with either one. I was going to get a kholster due to price and more adjustability. Then Craig had a good "blem" supertuck over on xdtalk for $40 and that is what I have and use w/ no complaints. Either will be fine IMO.

Good advice on the horsehide. I do a lot of outdoor activity and will sweat like crazy.
Crossbreed Supertuck in Horsehide with the Combat Cut and don't forget the Crossbreed belt. I hear great things about the kholster also, but it mostly centers around price and I don't think they offer horsehide.

I LOVE my Crossbreed SuperTuck for the Glock 30 in .45 cal.
Won't knock the Kholster.......... I like some features and reviews I have read about it. Wouldn't hesitate to buy one to try. Price point is a factor, trust me.
Both of these holster are adjustable all over the place with options. You're bound to find a sweet spot somewhere in regard to comfort and printing.
However; the Crossbreed has proven itself in the horsehide version convincingly and I love the tuckability for dress shirts. Can't go wrong with the customer service and warranty in my opinion. Would not be without my gun belt also. Balances everything out perfectly. Period

Kolster cost less, More adjustable, Basic holster
Crossbreed, more options, more expensive, Dyed, can be made fancier
Both have lifetime warrenty, Both have lots of supporters, (users) that are happy with their holster.
It simply your call, you'll be as happy with one as the other.
