Leather is definitely more comfortable against your body/skin in my experience. Might not be a big deal to some people. The holster I always recommend to people for IWB carry is the Milt Sparks Versa Max 2 made in horse hide. There are other similar holsters and clones out there, but as far as I can tell, Milt Sparks is on top for quality. It is the best IWB holster out there for concealability and comfort. Unfortunately therein lies the problem. They are a small operation and demand is very high so the back log is 6-7 months at the moment. I've owned 3 holsters from them and I don't have a problem with the wait.

In the mean time while I wait for my Versa Max 2, I've ordered the Comp-Tac MTAC, which only has a 10 day wait at the moment. The Crossbreed Supertuck is also supposed to be damn good, but has a longer wait time (10 weeks IIRC).

If you carry your pistol on a regular basis ...... to most ... leather is always more comfortable. I have three, and all are leather.

I just got my Blade Tech IWB holster, and I'm quite satisfied.



It had a 3 week lead time, fits well, and offers great retention.

I will throw out there get the best of both worlds.



The Comp-tac minotaur has the comfort of leather on the side against your body, and the speed and ease of Kydex on the pant side.



Easy on, easy off, comfortable, easy reholstering, inexpensive, and fast production and delivery.

I just picked up my TT Gunleather designed Occidental IWB at the Post Office













side by side with Tim's fantastic reinforced IWB with Shark Trim for my Glock 19:









The one for my G19 is the most comfortable IWB holster I've worn period! I've tried and worn a M-Tac, Milt Sparks VMII, Raven, Bladetech etc and this is the one I'm sticking too with excellent products and excellent customer service.

I carry my full size 40 in a crossbreed super tuck. took less than the two to three week lead time to arrive as well. I would highly recommend the holster.

It won't let me edit my post now. I was way off on Crossbreed's turnaround time. The website says 3-4 weeks, not 10. Just an FYI.

I like my crossbreed. I purchased it from a member on the forum and got it in a couple days.

The G19 one that I actually carried is super comfy, I don't pick up my M&P until the 20th so I'll get to try it out one day before I send it off to Apex Tactical.





Just an FYI, Occidental's Stronghold holsters turnaround is 12 days or less

Depends on the person, the pistol, the holster, etc.

My most comfortable holster is a CompTac CTAB. I much prefer it to my leather IWB holsters (and I have quite a few). Why? THIN and minimal.



But, for others they do not like the feel of the kydex against the skin.

You are going to have to try and see what you like. Seems like the kydex holsters also offer the most flexibility for adjustment.



If you want leather though I have been very pleased with my C5Leather.com. About $80 shipped and 3 weeks to make..

I absolutely love my Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC. I've been wearing it now for 16 hours and it's still comfy.
