    Looking for a new IWB at 3-4 o'clock for G26/27, have old Don Hume but it's thick so i am looking for something thinner, what do you suggest? Thx.

    Are you looking for leather, kydex or a hybrid?

    Vedder Lighttuck

    I often carry a G23 IWB with this holster

    When I carry my 26 it is in a Vedder LightTuck with their claw attachment. I have them for a few guns and I like them a lot for their comfort and light weight.

    Do look at the KRAMER Horsehide.

    I have a Vedder for mine I like it. The COmptac Mtac or Spartan are good two point hybrids.

    The Kusiak are kydex-like, thin and formed, in leather.

    Check with lobogunleather.com and see if they can make you one from horsehide. It's thinner and more sweat resistant than cowhide.

    If its thin you want, check out FIST holsters. My wife has EDCed her Glock 26 in a FIST ultra thin kydex IWB holster for the past 15 years. She has cracked one, but he offered her a 50% discount on the replacement (it had around 7-8 years of daily use).

    My buddy is also using a FIST ultra thin kydex holster for his Gen 5 26.

    Lots of different attachment options too.

    started out with a mtac (still a great company) & eventally transitioned to cbst across the board; slightly thinner build conforming better w/o giving up quality. agree with prior comments regarding ruff side out (facing body) contributing to an overall more comfortable design. i've stuck with standard cowhide offering, but don't have an issue with sweating that some guys seem to. horsehide offering is supposed to address.

    There are many good options on the market. You specifically stated "thin". I honestly cannot think of a thinner, more sleek/streamlined holster than a PJ Holster. I have many, many holsters for different guns and situations........ PJ always gets the nod when absolute thinness is called for.

    Good Luck

    Like several others here, I carry my G26 in a Vedder LightTuck. It's an excellent holster for that gun, although I carry mine at 2:30.

    Most 50 holster brands people like . Kydex will be the thinnest but I HATE kydex only specially for iwb Got to have leather on the back half but possibly a man made material like stealthgear ventcore like my wife likes for her Kimber 9mm ultra mini I Prefer a MTAC but I wear larger 4" class pistols My wife used an MTAC for a m&p 9c or 4.25 full size also and we bough wear at 3:00 . Check out Safariland model 27 BUT buy a model for a glock 19 to help with carry comfort as this holster carrys high on your side , the extra length makes it comfortable . Our oldest daughter bought one for a glock 19 also carried at 3:00 and since I picked one up for a lw commander , it works well and is comfortable .

    I use Hanks Gun Leather IWB holster (https://hanksgunleather.com/store/p95/Glock_26_IWB_Holster.html) for my G26.
    It is not as fancy or expensive as other custom leather holsters, but it works very well. Actually it is the thinnest and least bulky IWB holster - leather or kydex - I have ever tried. I have once for every CCW gun I carry IWB.
