Why do you ask, is the finish known to be inferior than standard?
How often do you drew from the holster? I may draw it a lot since I like to clean my house a lot. I really like the color, just got it yesterday.I've been carrying mine in a IWB for about a year now, very minimal wear, if any. I believe Dub is correct on the cerakote.
dub u an ECU man?
Not a fair comparison. If the sides were reversed (not practical) the wear could likely be worse. I'd say that is more holster design than material A causing more wear than material B.I got mine in march. Its my edc and I use a hidden hybrid holster. The first picture is from the leather side of the holster the second is from the kydex side. Based on this, Id say the leather causes more wear. It gets holstered in the morning and unholstered at night and maybe once in the middle of the day if I need to drop a duce. So I'd say it has held up better than I thought it would.
if the holster was left handed holster, the wear might be different. But im not left handed. Regardless of that, the hybrid holster design in general is the same. I have 3 different brands. And on all three brands my guns show simular wear. The leather makes more contact with the gun due to the holster being held tight to the body. Leather is also "grippier" and will conform to the gun more than a solid piece of kydex.I can't speak for solid kydex holsters or solid leather holsters. But for the 3 brands that I use, this is my experience.Not a fair comparison. If the sides were reversed (not practical) the wear could likely be worse. I'd say that is more holster design than material A causing more wear than material B.
