I was planning on purchasing the Incog holster but since they can't give me a timeline on when the weaponlight version will hit the shelves I went to Trex arms and ordered their sidecar.

Its light/rmr compatible, and comes with a mag carrier.

Also their customer service is great, on par with Gcode which is saying something. http://trex-arms.com/

I've been carrying a G26 AIWB in a bellyband holster for the last several years with great success. I have to be able to tuck a dress shirt in over the firearm and belt clips would be very obvious with a suit so that's what drove my holster choice.

I'd say the slide guard style.... off set metal clip, back of holster protects the body from the gun. lots of expensive appendix or other IWB type rigs that do nothing to protect you from the gun.

I carry a G26 in a GALCO STOW-N-GO holster. Great leather, single clip holster from Galco at a VERY reasonable price. You can get 'em cheaper than this list price shown:

Years ago, when my physical attributes facilitated it, I sometimes appendix carried a J frame revolver. More than anything, the main thing to do was holster the gun outside the belt and carefully put the combo in place. Too many men have shot their genitalia for me to ignore the possibility.

Alien Gear...Great quality, outstanding price, and excellent fringe benefits of ownership too...

Not made specific for apendix carry, but my Alessi CQC works well there.

You take their offerings and wear them appendix instead of IWB in the back.

Phlster.com I have a Skeleton for my 23 and 27 and I love it as my main holster. Today I just got their city special for my SW 637 snubbie. Have it on already and it's great! Small and snug. Similar to my other one. Easy on and off too!!

Bianchi 100 would work also. One of my favorite holsters for single stack guns.

Appalachian Concealment makes a very well thought out holster specifically for AIWB carry. He ships fast too.http://www.appalachianconcealment.com/

The Dale Fricke Archangel is a great AIWB holster as well, but it costs quite a bit more. I bought one for my son, and he loves it.

For appendix carry I recommend Kevlar lining in any holster choice. Better safe than sorry.

I like a Trigger Guard type such as the MIC
Spend about $20 and just try a Trigger Guard Holster
Tried several different AIWB holsters but none suited me. I then decided to try a trigger guard type and that hit the sweet spot for me.

I have both a MIC and a Vanguard 2. I like the MIC better.
The Vanguard tends to dig into my leg
(I may cut off the end on the Vanguard) and I don't like the loop. I use the lanyard.

On both I have the lanyard tied shorter to keep the pistol from riding too low and the holster comes off as soon as the pistol clears my belt.

The loop on the Vanguard holds the pistol in place and won't let it move but you need to unsnap it, remove and then place back on pistol before putting back in pants and re-snap.

The lanyard lets the pistol float with a small amount of movement and to me that is more comfortable as I move, sit or drive.

With the shorter cord my pistol is already pointed away from my body as I draw.
I clear the belt in a forward direction, the cord pulls the holster off as soon as I go forward a very little way.
Another thing I like is the trigger is covered by replacing the trigger guard before you stick the pistol back in your belt.

It took several tries before I settled on the cord length.

I also tried both with a Clip Draw but decided the Clip Draw was not needed and shirt couldn't be tucked using it.
My waist size is 38.
I wear size 38 pants/jeans or shorts and they work well with AIWB and the trigger guard. Don't need a bigger size
