I've got many concealed carry guns, so I'm looking for something that will work well owb strong side for hiking. I'm not interested in something that has a flap to cover the gun; I'd rather just have a snap or traditional hammer loop. I'd like something made of good quality leather, but don't need a lot of embellishments. Basically just a good holster to hold the gun snug while hiking in the woods. I'd rather have one with two belt attachment points on either side of the gun to prevent wobble too, similar to some of the high rise owb concealed carry gun holsters.

If you're looking for a holster for the field, there's only one that comes to mind with regard to protecting the gun and keeping it secure. Simply Rugged.

Take a look at their "Texas Pancake", as it fits your described requirements for attaching to the belt, as well as providing for a few extra rounds to tag along.
The Loaded Pancake may interest you as well.

I just recently got a Bianchi #111 Cyclone for my 4" 686 and I like it. It can be worn strong side or cross-draw. It does have a thumb-break strap, though, and it does not meet the attachment point criteria, but still it's a good holster.

I've been in contact with Ryan from RGrizzle Holsters and am thinking about having him make me something like this:

Here are a few more pics of the gun with my Canon:

Great gun! I have a 686 no dash mfg in 1981. Smoothest double action I have ever fired.

Thought I'd give you guys an update. A couple of days ago I went to the local smith who is very good and used to compete heavily in PPC and NRA Action Pistol. He's got targets hanging all over his work shop that I only dream of being able to shoot one day. He had just finished putting an over-travel stop in my Ruger MKIII, and I thought I'd show him my 686 to look over.

He checked everything over for me, and then removed the side plate. He told me that whoever had owned it at one time before had had a very nice professional trigger job done. None of the springs were swapped, but he said that everything had been very well deburred, and that nothing was creating friction where it shouldn't. He was really impressed with it and said it felt similar to his 586 with a trigger job that was one of the guns he used for competition.

I guess it seems like I got a good one!
