Looking into trying one of these style holsters. Wondering WHO makes the best one or better ones of the style? Have a friend who swears by his "King Tuk" by Galco ( http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG3.asp?ProductID=4079&GunID=49 ), I know a bunch people here really seem to like the CBH one of the same style ( http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/ ).

So what gives, who's got the best one?


Thanks! :)

First, I have not tried the Galco product. Having noted that, I love the CBST iwb set-up. I tried a friend's CBST and was sold on it. Their gun belts are excellent, as well.

I have a friend that tried the king tuck. Within a week he sold his cross breed.

The Kingtuk which I have is superb. Very high quality like everything Galco. I got one about 6 months ago and after carrying for 15 years, it is now the only holster I really use any more. Very comfortable and I got my for $51 online. It has the (combat) cut I like that you have to pay extra with the Crossbreed.

White hat is what I have and its so comfortable, and you can switch out the kydex pieces, but I've haven't been using it lately ... switched to an leather iwb that I got off a eBay you also can look into American holster company they make the hybrid style in all leather I have one on order should be made by April long wait time for his holsters

I thought about driving over to American Holsters to have a look see. His stuff comes well recommended from some of my internet "friends". They are supposed to be more comfortable than the hybrids, since the leather flexes while plastic doesn't and digs into the dunlaps

I like my Crossbreed IWB holster myself.

How about Comp Tac ( http://www.comp-tac.com/catalog.php?osCsid=dji1c2gs6o9la4t1ouu7p9gje4 ) they were the other big name I had heard of making these that every swore by. What do you guys (who have tried them) think the them?

I can't see a big difference in the brands, they all seem to be just about the same thing of the style, unless I am missing something I am not seeing in them all?

I tried the King-tuk, and didn't like it for lots of reasons. I got a Comp-tac MTAC and I like it a lot.

Anything that is similarly designed like that is going to be comfortable. The only thing that would separate them is kydex (weapon retention) and price. I have the CBST myself so cannot speak to weapon fit of others. With the CBST its perfect, i did not have to adjust anything and wear it 15-16 hours a day and forget its there.

What did you not like about the King Tuk?

I had been leaning towards that on a friend's advice who has one here, plus availability (no wait time for construction) and price seemed to be about the best on it too?

Looking for one for the 9mm sized frames, anyone carry anything as large as a 21SF in one? I already KNOW the kydex bodies on the holsters are TWO different sizes on them.

Back when they were available, I would have said the Bluegrass Hybrid. I love mine:

I have a CBST for my XD and a Kung Tuk for my G26. If I turn the CBST upside down, my XD will fall out. The KT will hold my G26 upside down.

Other than the amount of retention, I can't say that there is much difference.

#1 I felt it did not cover enough of the trigger, the metal clips were not as secure as the MTAC's and they scratched up my belt, the leather backing interfered with the grip on the draw.

I have the Comp-Tac version of this style. I feel like all holsters of this style will be very comfortable. Its the small things that separate them for me. I am really looking at the Galco King tuck to replace my comp-tac. The comp-tac standard clips are the worst part of the holster. They could use some improving. I really like the clip style of the crossbreed and galco. I am a christian but i dont like the crosses on the crossbreed clips. My goal is to stay as discreet and unnoticed as possible. Thats why the Galco is catching my eye.

A holster I really like is similar, but a little different is the Simply Rugged Cuda with the inside out straps. These allow you to wear the holster as a Pancake or IWB by just installing or removing the straps. Basically two holsters in one.

I've been using one for almost a year now & really like it.

I'd have to say the Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC is the reigning "Best of the Breed" for this type of holsters. People love to rave about the CBST (Cross Breed SuperTuck), but you also see them up for sale (at competitive prices...not gouging prices) constantly in the classifieds...which generally means they found something better.

I had a King Tuk and didn't like it much. It was too thick and stiff. The White Hat I have now is great. Made of horse hide, very thin and comfortable. The thickness of the leather and kydex adds maybe 3/16" and it molds to your hip like a second skin, which it is, technically.
