What are the pros and cons of the different holster materials?

Initially I'm mainly thinking pocket holster so
1) leather
2) synthetic (like desantis superfly)
3) other?

IWB
1) leather
2) synthetic
3)kydex (perhaps a supertuck or minituck)

For a pocket holster, I think synthetic materials, in designs, like the superfly or Mika pocket holster are superior to leather, because they stick to the pocket better on the draw... I have both leather and synthetic and prefer synthetic...

For IWB, I prefer all leather holsters. Synthetic and kydex holsters to me are uncomfortable against the skin...The supertuck is a hybrid holster and I think these are as good as all leather holsters. I just prefer the feel of leather against my skin, to kydex or synthetic materials...

Leather for OWB. Leather or leather/kydex for IWB. Cheapo synthetic for not wearing finish on safe queens and storeage.
