I mentioned in the last thread about the N82 that I would be ordering one and giving it a try. This holster is made by a company called N82 Tactical. The company is basically two guys named Nate and the 2 means squared. Thus N8 = Nate, 2 = squared. I ordered the compact version for my G26 on Monday evening and it arrived today. My initial impressions are that the holster is very well made, has a good layer of "cushion", and rides just above the belt with a slight cant. I've tried the holster at 5 O'clock, 4, 4:30, 3, and AIWB. The holster is very comfortable at all of these positions. I am particularly fond of the way it feels and rides at 3 O'clock. The suede backing is very comfortable against bare skin. I've tried both leather and kydex and neither of these are comfortable to me against the skin. There is a cushion layer between the suede and outer leather piece where the gun sits. This allows for additional comfort. I have tried the CBST and find this N82 holster to be quite a bit more comfortable. Doesn't mean everyone will (so calm down as you read this!). I have tried many holsters on the market over the years like most of you and I can honestly say that this is the most comfortable holster that I have tried for IWB carry. I'm still searching for the mythical "perfect" OWB holster and have a CrossBreed Snapslide on order at the moment. So far, so good. Time will tell how it holds up and if I continue to feel this way. As you all know, finding the best holster is EXTREMELY objective and personal for each one of us. If you like "pretty" holsters, then this is just not for you. But if you appreciate function and comfort and want to try something new, you ought to check this holster out. I'm glad I did.
