    I was looking into getting a new IWB holster and I've narrowed it down to the crossbreed super tuck and a Theis holster. My question is other than price is there a difference in the two holsters with how they carry. which one would you recommend.

    I would recomend A Whitehat holster over the Theis Holsters, the White hat holsters you can switch out the kydex for other types of guns.... the Theis holsters are very nice Ive had one, but ended up selling it with a old revolver I had... cant really go wrong with either one ...

    I am a huge fan of the CBST, I have two.

    That being said, the Theis has a large fan base, many of them also have a CBST. The Theis will be my next holster.

    I need a good IWB for my K9, the CompTac Pro Undercover has been "fixed" a few too many times and may be heading to drawer soon.

    Well I have two CBST, one horse hide one cow hide. I also have a horse hide White Hat. All are good. I would have to say I am preferring the White Hat.

    Im another white hat fan. They have an antique cowboy horsehide backing that I ordered for mine that is beautiful, plus they put designs on the kydex, which like has already been said, can be switched out for different guns. I got the constitution design on my kydex. At first I ordered mine for my G27, after talking with the owner, tony farah, who by the way isvery customer oriented, he advised me to go with the G23/19 kydex, since I may be buying a 19 soon, the holster for a 23/19 will fit the 26/27 size glocks perfectly also, but not vice versa. He could have been like a lot of other business owners and told me I needed to buy a seperate kydex for a G19 when I get one, instead he saved me some money by informing me that the holster made for a 23/19 would work for the 26/27 also! He treats his customers how he would want to be treated.

    White hat is a great choice, very comfortable. I got the black kydex and a horse hide backing. This holster only adds about 3/16" to the thickness of your pistol. Here's what mine looks like:

    I got the black kydex with the horse hide backing. If I like the way it carries I would like to get a custom kydex for my Sig or my 1911. Has anyone carried a heavier gun in this holster?

    The owner said he carries a taurus 1911 in his.

    Just got a Remora and I really like it. Fits well and comfortable plus it has the added benefit of being usable in pants without a belt. There's a discussion in the "Carry Issues" forum with a video of a girl using one IN A BIKINI!!! Check it out. (The video alone is worth it! :supergrin:)

    Looks like there is half a hide in that thing.

    I just recieved a Fusion Pac made by Tacti Pac for my CM9 and like it so much that I will be purchasing one for my 26 here shortly. Does not rely on a belt at all and is very comfortable.

    I love my CompTac CTACs but there may very well be better choices by now.

    I also tried a MTAC (similar to Crossbreed) for my G26 but could not get comfortable. Too much time to put on. I also had to "work" to reholster, leather grips and closes some. I finally settled on a Galco Triton. Easy on,easy off. Reholstering is great. i wasn't sure if I could tolerate all Kydex as I usaully do not wear a undershirt. I wear this as my EDC for several weeks now and am really happy with it.
