Ended up going crossbreed for my Kimber micro 380 and crossbreed for my Glock 43x. I have yet to try them out but they appear to be a quality product.

Update:

The Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe I got for my 43x is such a comfortable holster. Ended up carrying in it today for about 7 hours and I’m sure part of the pleasantness is the pistol itself but wow… I’m hooked. Crossbreed makes a nice holster.

I like to use Crossbreed for my larger frames, I also have a Cleveland that is nice and broke in. For the smaller frames, I do like the kydex. I have had good luck with We the People holsters. Bad thing is I could have a few holsters for each one but that gets expensive. I Just picked up some OWB snap holsters for two of my larger frames and want to order another. Does it ever end?

Go with a quality leather holster maker and you can’t go wrong
All the bad stuff you hear about leather holsters are typically from cheap leather holsters go with someone that knows how to properly reinforce one and you will never look at kydex again

I’m pretty happy with my Crossbreed. But I’d agree with you, can’t beat a good quality leather holster.

I’ve Been rocking a G-Code Incog Eclipse forever (wife also) g43, g43x, g19, and shield. I’ve tried a bunch of others and it would take a lot for me to change. I also don’t like wearing an under shirt and this holster has “tactical fuzz” that really makes it feel comfortable while carrying.

I currently use a Bianchi leather IWB holster for my Glock 36 and It feels pretty good now that I’ve gotten it broke in. Anyways I’m in the market now for an IWB holster for my Glock 43x. MidwayUSA has a kydex one but I wonder how that feels against the body. My preference is probably leather unless y’all say kydex is equally as comfortable as well.

I hate shopping for holsters. It’s like picking out new shoes.
I got a custom kydex holster from T5 that I then glues a piece of leather to.
