    This is like asking a female which tampon feels more comfortable. Brand x or y.

    FWIW: I use comptac MTAC with glock open slide version. Fits all my glocks from subcompact on up.

    I hate the King Tuck. I got one a year ago and it is junk.

    For my G23 and G27 I wear the Comp-Tac Infidel IWB holster. The Slide version fit's both pistols and the kydex will always hold it's shape for easy one handed holstering.

    I have had a Supertuck for 3 years and its my primary conceal carry holster. The quality is good, comfort is fantastic and I know there are other good brands out there that make something similar. Crossbreed has a 2 week trial period from the day you receive it, so if you dont like it send it back, you do have to eat shipping but $7 is a small price to pay for a trial.

    Their customer service is superb. I have and seen other deal with them on the XD site and are great. They also offer NRA, military, LEO and other discounts. I will be one of the first to piss on a bad product/poorly run/crappy service but I will also be one of the first to say when a product/company/person has done right by me :wavey:

    I have heard good things about the Theis but have never used one so I can only comment on hearsay and its been positive. Good Luck

    I see you've already ordered, but for others reading that need the info I'll continue. I have had the kingtuk for about 2 months now. I'd say its ok, definitely budget friendly. The leather is separating though where my extended slide lock/takedown lever rubs it, so I went back to the stock one and glued the leather back together. Seems to be holding up. I wish the upper leather would cover all of the slide and the grip to prevent needing an undershirt.

    I have the King Tuk and wear it a lot. Great holster far from "Junk". Fits my G32 and G33 like a glove. I probably would have bought a SuperTuk also if the clips didn't have those stupid crosses on them.
