I have always carried my Glock 27 in a pancake style holster and covered it with a polo shirt. I have lost some weight and now have some extra room in my pants, so I want to give IWB a try once again. I have one of the "M.I.C." style holsters for the Glock and will sometimes carry like that and have even used that in the pockets of cargo pants and shorts. I like the looks of several of the hybrid style leather/kydex holsters and think that is going to be my choice. Anyone have some recommendations for this type of holster with the Glock subcompacts?

I've been using a SHTF hybrid holster for the past few months and it has been great. It is very comfortable and I can wear it along with the gun all day long. I've been using an all kydex hoslter from Aholster for my Ruger LCP and am thinking of ordering on for my G27.

I carry mostly in a White Hat hybrid holster and love it!! I also use a Ramora that I picked up a few weeks ago and I has been great.

I have tried a lot of holsters over the years, but those two are the best I have used by far.

Here is my G27 in a White Hat.

It's a shame no one ever sees how nice it looks.

Those White Hat holsters look really good as do the SHTF holsters. Thought about an all kydex holster similar to the Aholster, but would think the leather would feel better against your skin.

Get the Desantis IMB 028 cozy partner series holster. It beats out my milt sparks in comfort.

Personal preference, body style, carry location, etc, all come into play. I have the Theis, Old Faithful and N82 for my G27 and I like them all. I had tried the N82 Professional and didn't like it but just recently received a N82 Original and think it's fantastic. Most comfortable and doesn't shift at all. The only drawback is not being able to reholster one handed.

There will be pros and cons for each and you need to approach the hunt for the perfect holster as an adventure. Good luck.

FYI - I did this write-up back in December that may be helpful.

I just got a hybrid holster from Dustin at Ozarks Holster Company. I have not owned anything similar to compare it with, but the craftsmanship is very good, he uses horse hide on all his holsters with no extra charge, they are very comfortable and the price is half of what many of the competitors charge for similar items. I would definitely check them out if you are in the market. Ozarks Holster Company | Quality Holsters Made in USA

While I like hybrid holsters, my personal preference is for holsters like the Comp-tac infidel or a similar one from PJ Holsters.

They have a much smaller footprint. The PJ holster especially feels like the pistol is naked, despite it being covered completely, Not to mention they secure the pistol in place to your belt and are much easier to take on/off than the big hybrid models.

For the hybrids, the best I've got (and i've tried them all) is the Theis.

I use a galco king tuck for my g26 carried at about 3:30. I always tuck in a shirt under the holster, but its not too bad if you what to just wear one shirt over it all.

I should probably give one of those a look. I don't mind the mic holster at all, so the Infidel or PJ holster might be right up my alley.

I would like to 2nd the White Hat. I really like mine. The reason I was sold on theirs, is that you can change out the kydex to fit many guns, and you only have to buy and break in one leather backing. I got mine for Glocks and my XDs. A kydex piece is about $25 verses $90 or so for a good holster.

I have Shielded Holsters by Kurtis Baker. $50 but less if you ask for a Blemished one. Blemishes don't take away from function. Once you've worn it, the blemish blends in with the wear on the holster.

I also recently acquired a Remora for a S&W Performance Center 586 L-Comp. that remora
Fits all Glocks, too. Advantage of the remora is being able to put it on quickly.

I have a CBST and like it. My VMII is my favorite. If you want hybrid though, any of the popular ones mentioned will work (CBST, White hat, SHTF, Old Faithful, Theis, etc...)

What was it you didn't like about the N82 Pro? I'm curious since I just ordered one for my Shield.

i've been considering the Comp-Tac Infidel Ultra:

anyone have any experience with this relatively new holster?
I use the Comp-tac CTAC on my G27. The only reason I didnt get the infidel was I wanted the adjustable clips for deep tuck. I absolutely love it. I have a friend that will be switching from a Crossbreed to a CTAC. Being only kydex makes a huge difference.

I can tell you what I didn't like about it. I had one for my Glock 26. It was the most comfortable IWB holster I have owned so far. I did not like the positive retention system built into the rig. You have to twist the rig toward your body as you draw or it will NOT come out of the holster. Now, I know this is an issue that you can train for if you so desire. I decided I did not want to rely on my training for this in a high stress situation. I would prefer to simply draw & present should the need ever arise. IMHO, I feel like IWB alone provides plenty of retention without the addition of positive retention. Good luck with your N82. It is a great company with great owners. YMMV!
