    Hi guys... I'm pretty set right now on IWB holsters so I am on the hunt for the perfect OWB holster.. I wear my holsters at the 3:00 positon..Concealment is top priority,with that said I want something that holds tight to the body,preferably leather,would like snap loops but belt loops would be ok as well. NO PADDLES...I don't want something that rides real high either...So what do you guys use? Pictures would really help too....:wavey:

    A few I have tried:

    Don Hume H721OT
    Glock Sport Combat holster

    I use a Serpa but it does not meet your criteria. Kydex, no snap loops, not very tight to the body

    I use a desantis thumb break scabbard for my g26. It is my first holster and so far i like it. Im starting to think the thumb break is unnecessary but i can live with it.

    i also use serpa.... adjustable cant angle helps keep it tucked in tight under a t-shirt, and comfy at the 3-4 oclock position

    Galco and DeSantis will have some good leather OWB options w/the thumbsnap retention... I have a DeSantis that I occationally use for OWB and it does just fine.

    I've been using these SW Specials from LittleBear holsters for a while. He can do whatever cant/ride height you like. You can get different sized loops for different belt widths, as well.

    Most comfortable holster I've ever had.

    Don Hume 721 snap top would probably fit your needs. It is belt loops, not snaps though.

    HBE would be my first choice in leather OWB - handsome, fast to draw from, comfortable, close fit.
    In Kydex, a Raven Concealment Phantom provides a very close fit, but it's not a low riding rig.

    check out High Noon Holsters. I just orderd an IWB holster even though my previous experience with an IWB was not pleasant. They have a 30 day return policy and the price was cheap ($36) so figured why not give it another shot.
