    Have been thinking of ordering one for a while for my G30sf and M&P 9c and really like the fact that the bodies can be changed. Have heard lots of good things about MTACs but personally have found IWB carry to be uncomfortable long term during summer. How comfortable are these during the summer with heat, humidity and sweat and nothing between the holster and skin? Are they comfortable for extended carry in these conditions?

    I have an MTAC for my G19. I do not like it next to my skin. The temp get to be near 100 frequently in the Summer. It is uncomfortable. In the Summer I use a paddle and tall versions of shirts.

    I wear one year arund in Miami. It is more comfortable with a inner
    t-shirt and a button up. But I get by fine without.

    It is very comfortable in all weather, including hot summers. You can wear it against bear skin, it has soft leather which helps. However, I prefer a t-shirt underneath with a pull over or button down shirt on top.

    It conceals very well and is comfortable for long periods during the day. I have worn it at the office with slacks and a button down shirt tucked in. No one had a clue I was carrying.

    I have multiple bodies for the different guns that I have and may carry from time to time. Great feature.

    115°F here in the summer and my MTAC and G19 are very comfortable with cargo shorts, instructors belt, and a Hawaiian print from CostCo. Have to watch for the shirt riding up while in the top-free Jeep though...it is friggin' hot on the freeway, literally.

    sometimes mine goes next to my skin so i sewed neoprene on that side. it holds in place better, the belt doesn't have to be too tight, and if the neoprene gets funky in a couple of years i can replace it. it is better to have an undershirt between you and the holster though. very comfotable holster but it gets more comfortable over time.

    St Louis is famous (infamous?) for its "90/90" days during the summer. 90 degrees/90% humidity. i wear my MTAC/G26 with a tshirt and shorts and nothing b/n it and me with no problems whatsoever.

    When you tuck your shirt in, does it give you enough space to tuck it in good or is it only a couple of inches which means your shirt is barely tucked in over the gun?
    thanks

    If you tuck your shirt in over the gun, you only get a couple of inches. This can be increased if you carry your gun deeper (or decreased if you carry it high), as the limiting factor is the connecting point to your belt clips.

    I carry at 8:30 or 9:00, so dress shirts with a curved bottom hem don't have much more than an inch or so to tuck to begin with.

    I often wear an Athletic shirt (aka wifebeater) underneath it to keep it from direct contact with my skin.
