Concealable OWB Kydex holster with good retention and concealment?

GTer's: I value your collective opinions and experience. Iím looking for a concealable Kydex OWB holster to carry Glock 19 and 26. I prefer a straight drop carry for my firearm in the 3-3:30 position.
I'd appreciate actual personal experience. Firearm stability (another words, I don't want the pistol to become dislodged from the holster) and concealment are my primary concerns.

Thanks!

The Glock Sport Combat Holster
Carry Issues

$12 free shipping at B0t@ch

At that price, everyone should have one,anyway.

It fits your criteria and its the only OWB I use for CCW.
Sure, its ugly, but its concealed, who cares?

I have this too, but will never use it. If you want retention, this is the one! In my experience it is impossible to draw single handed and still takes significant effort with two hands. I got it because it is so low risk due to the price. Give it a try if you like. As far as concealability it is probably as good as any of the expensive kydex options. Based on all the horror stories about b0t@ch tactical, i would order elsewhere. I got mine from opticsplanet.

I will be ordering a raven phantom very soon. the wait times are horrendous but the reviews are pretty damn good.

We have not had this problem with my GSC holster, or the wife's. I have heard others with this issue. Some have fixed it with silicone spray, while others have used the .45/10mm version for 9mm/.40/357 pistols.

Blade-Tech SRB (Sting Ray Belt) holster. I have two: one for my G34 and one for my Sig P226R. The G34 is for range and I carry the P226. I bought the holster for the P226 to use while I was waiting several months for my Milt Sparks leather. If you like Kydex, it is suitable for EDC and it is IDPA approved.

The holster has several very functional adjustments: (a) Cant can be adjusted for straight drop or "FBI" cant. (b) Belt loop is adjustable for different size belts. (c) Tension adjustment screw.

Unlike a lot of the other Kydex, it is meant to carry close to the body, rather than a competition style standoff. Besides Blade-Tech directly, check around because some suppliers discount.

+1. This setup is hard to beat. Retention is excellent and I've never had a difficult time with the draw, however wiping the interior with some armor-all or similar slicks things up just fine. The Glock holster is the most concealable OWB holster I have found, even more so than the Raven, which are outstanding holsters (I use Ravens in the winter for my G26s and a light compatible Raven neutral with cut body shield option for my G17 with X300). The only thing I don't like about the Glock holster is that it is open ended, while the Ravens are more closed - I just have to be more careful taking keys and such out of my pockets as I carry just fore of the hips on both sides. The Glock mag pouches are outstanding as well and for all the same reasons.

I have an OWB (in addition to a couple of IWB's) for my G26 from coachg whose ads you can find in the classifieds.

Excellent retention and quality, simple and lightweight, and low cost in comparison to others. Quick turnaround as well as top-notch service.

It conceals as well as any other OWB holster I have.

I am so impressed with the way glocks ride in these. This is the most comfortable carry method for me and it prints less than any OWB hoslter I have ever tried.

The glock sport is not kydex, but it is an excellent holster.

For a simple holster, which I use for IDPA sometimes, the standard kydex belt holster from Comptac is good.

Thanks guys. Any of you have personal experience with these holsters. I'm especially concerned about the pistol coming out of the holster during "maneuvers"

I have personal experience with the Raven. No issues with retention. Check out this vid and you will see him about halfway through, show the retention (around minute 3) - http://youtu.be/ZplHQWW-UEM
