So I have found that my 43 X inside a Kydex holster carries perfectly in a pocket ( jeans or khakis ), as long as the pocket is deep enough of course. I have a kydex holster that I removed the paddle from and voila, perfect fit. And because the sweat guard rises just a hair above the back of the slide, quick and easy drawing is not a problem as I can simply place my thumb in the top of the sweat guard for leverage to pull with my hand. The only question is should carrying like that in hot weather be a concern? I sweat a ton in the hotter months and don't want to keep my gun in a continuous sweat box if you will. This may sound like a trivial question but I didn't think it would hurt to ask.
