    Nylon holster for iwb carry

    So i have a glock 26 and im trying to find a good iwb holster. I bought a $62 iwb kydex holster for it, and this holster was very bulky and uncomfortable. I never knew how uncomfortable iwb kydex would be. This was an expensive holster too so its not like this was a cheap kydex holster. Im thinking nylon because its comfortable and its nowhere near as bulky. Even without the gun in the kydex holster, the holster was still bulky and noticeable on me since kydex doesnt collapse. Plus i know kydex holsters have to be made slightly bigger than the gun to be able to fit the gun. My only concern is how secure the glock 26 is in a nylon holster. Since a glock has a lighter trigger, i wouldnt want it to be accidentally pressed. I tried to press the trigger through this nylon holster, but i wasnt able to, which is good for me. But, do you carry a gun in an iwb nylon holster. What are your thoughts on iwb nylon holsters?

    Nylon IWB holsters are akin to trying to stuff a gym bag inside my pants, in my experience.

    Molded kydex/leather are as thin as it gets, holster-wise.

    Do you have a pic of the holster you bought for sixty-two bucks? They come in lots of designs.

    I used a nylon IWB holster for years. Holster the gun, then put it inside your waist. Very comfortable.

    Looks thin.
    Might be the location on your body you are carrying.

    Iíve used a Remora with no issues. Never tried nylon.

    Have you considered a Stealth or Phoenix V2 from @NelsonHolsters ? The Stealth is the only IWB holster I can tolerate.

    I've never been able to make a minimalist holster work comfortably, either.

    Where do you carry on your body? A Glock 26 is small. About the same as my LC9s Pro.

    I carry right handed, in a kydex holster at about 330 400 position FBI Cant and, for me, it is hardly noticeable. Maybe the width of the Glock makes the difference though.
    do you carry with any cant?

    Being on the slim side I do find my IWB Kydex holster to be uncomfortable. My EDC is a Walthe PPS M2, a but narrower than the Glock 26. but close to the Glock 43. I am now using thtee holsters.
    A Kydex Concealment Express that allows tucking the shirt. Being slim I do not like it but I tolerate it because it provides deeper concealment
    A Bianchi leather Foldaway OWB holster fir most EDC.
    A Houston IWB holster made of recycled leather for when I want to assure a shirt riding up will not alarm someone. It is a very soft thin holster that is easu on the body.

    Mt preference is the Bianchi. Photos below.

    The reason that kydex holster is uncomfortable is because of the way it's squared off at the bottom. There are lots of kydex holsters that are closer in shape to the Houston.

    I'm not comfortable with a "soft" holster of any kind - I like the positive protections and retention inherent in a well-made Kydex holster. It's also pretty much impossible to safely re-holster with a "soft" holster.

    I carry at 3 o clock. Maybe the holster didnt work because it was a minimalist holster. It wasnt cheap though. But the hard kydex against my body did bother me. And a kydex holster for a glock 26 would have to be thicker since the 26 is thicker i suppose. I just dont wanna keep spending $50 plus on kydex holsters if they will all feel the same. Its hard because its not like i can just return them.

    have you considered a hybrid IWB, such as from Black Arch Holsters or CompTac?
    they are VERY comfortable for me.

    G26 Holster Comfort

    In my experience, carrying at 3 o'clock with any IWB is somewhat uncomfortable due to my hip bone. In front (appendix) or behind at 4-5 o'clock is more comfortable. I don't carry a Glock G26 very often anymore, but when I did, it was usually IWB at about 4 o'clock, right behind my hip bone. I found that kydex, hybrid, or leather all worked in this position. The kydex holster I used wasn't expensive and was good for grab and go, being easy to slip inside my waist band. I used a Milt Sparks Summer Comfort II, and it was very comfortable. I also have a Crossbreed hybrid holster that was okay, just not my cup of tea. IMHO, some of the key things to finding a holster that is comfortable aren't related to the holster at all, but depend on the belt, clothes, and where it is positioned relative to one's physical characteristics. What may be very comfortable for me might not work for you.Nylon holster for iwb carry-g26-6.jpgNylon holster for iwb carry-g26-4.jpgNylon holster for iwb carry-g26-7.jpg

    Didnt you find the kydex holster to stand out more due to it being more bulky?
