    Ok I know many of you already know this, but I'm a big fan of my CBST. I'm also a REALLY big fan of great customer service, and Crossbreed meets that as well!

    Without trying to explain the whole thing...I'll just quote the email:

    "Hello, I have one of your single IWB mag holders which are the same size as the double IWB holders. I now see that you offer smaller single IWB holders and was wondering if it was possible to ship mine back, and have it cut/re-fit like the new smaller style. The original design is too much leather when also wearing the Supertuck, as my waist is 28". Because of this, I unfortunately no longer wear the mag holder.

    Is there anyway you could turn my older one into something like the new style, which uses a lot less leather?

    Thanks,
    -Cody"


    Response:

    "No problem - just send it to us with a copy of this e-mail and your original order if you still have it and we'll get it exchanged for you.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions or if I can be of further assistance.

    The best part? I received a BRAND NEW (new design) IWB mag holder within about a week, AND a refund check for the cost of the mag holder! If that's not outstanding customer service, I don't know what is.

    I love my CBST and the company sure knows how to keep it's customers. It's one thing you probably won't get with a "knock off" company. Just thought I would share.

    *To keep this on topic, I carry my EMP in my CBST.

    Thanks for sharing your positive experience.

    Their products are not for me, but it's always good to hear about companies like that.

    You have a 28" waist? :whistling:






    :supergrin: Glad they took care of you. I have a few of their holsters that I used when I wasn't carrying a 1911. They make good stuff.

    I haven't had a 28" waistline since I was 18-years-old and fresh out of Basic Training.

    Crossbreed is definitely a great company! I had a ton of their stuff until I switched to Shielded Holsters, which is the same design and while a lot smaller, is just as easy to deal with. CBST opened up the doors for tons of companies and people to make similar designs to theirs. The huge thing i have seen is there are a ton of really good replicas. I have not found a company yet that makes anything that holds a candle to RCS' design

    try white hat holsters, they offer crossbreed type holsters with impregnated designs/color options, and are cheaper than crossbreed.

    Liked my CBST carrying the HK. Something fundamentally wrong IMHO about carrying a 1911 in plastic. Just one man's opinion...

    I own 2 CBST and the kydex on the one for my 1911 cracked and sent it in and had it back in 5 days with a new Kydex shell

    My Glock one was an older one and the clip & Kydex broke. Sent it in and 5 days later I had a brand new holster.

    Great customer service to me out ways a cheaper knock off.

    I have CBST, and a Shielded brand.
    Both excellent quality and CS - but it takes time to grow accustomed to both.

    The CBST is THE most comfortable IWB holster I own.

    Guys lets try to keep this on track...this was a thread I started about Crossbreed's awesome customer service, not which holster is better and why.

    Big fan of crossbreed here! I've tried a certain other crossbreed knockoff and it is NOT the same. Similar , but IMO, it is well worth the extra dough for the real thing. Their customer service is fantastic.

    Nope, I made it relevant by saying I use it to carry my "non real 1911" around. :tongueout:
