make sure you are using a 1.5 inch wide belt - their holsters wont fit anything larger
save money and get whatever holster in DIY kit form with the kydex already formed - save money and build it yourself - good fun

I ordered a holster from them and have been using it for about 5 weeks now. The Old Faithful stage 3 kit is what I ordered. It's also my first hybrid IWB holster that I've ever had and I love it. I got mine during a sale they had and only paid around $41.00 and some change after shipping. Even at their standard price I still would have bought it and been very satisfied.

I think it is one of the highest quality holsters, and most comfortable holster out there. You can't go wrong with Old Faithful.

I just put mine together yesterday. Very easy to do. Leather is top notch and is very supple with just bending by hand. Have not had a chance to wear it yet but have no doubt it will be outstanding.

Are their holsters thicker than crossbreed?

Or does it add much bulk?

Thanks

I own three Old Faithful Holsters, an IWB for a J-Frame, and IWB for a G26, and an OWB for a Ruger SR22.

Great company, best value holster out there if you get the Stage III kit.

I don't own a Crossbreed, but the difference in Kydex thickness won't be noticable when wearing, other than the thicker Kydex stays open better for reholstering.

The only thing I don't like about the Old Faithful is the tabs at the bottom of the spring clips are a bit too long. When wearing the holster with a properly thick gun belt, the tabs stick out and you can snag your hand while accessing your pockets.

I wrote Old Faithful about this, and they are sending me some leather loops with directional snaps that they are experimenting with. When they get her I can report back my thoughts.

No complaints.

Just an update: Old Faithful sent me a pair of leather loops to replace the spring steel belt clips. They have directional snaps so they're not going to unsnap at the wrong time.

After wearing them for about 2 weeks, all I can say is I LOVE THEM! My only complaint with the original holster was the bottoms of the spring clips were scratching my hands up when I accessed my front and back pockets. These leather loops hold the holster just fine, allow you to slide your belt around a bit to center your buckle, and the loops allow front and back pocket access without scratching up your hand. (I know, I'm a baby.)

Old Faithful said they will have the leather loops available on their website in the near future. I can't wait to purchase a second pair for my other Old Faithful IWB holster, and buy a mag carrier with the leather loops.

Thanks for the update. I wouldn't mind leather straps for my holster. And incidentally, I also have the black with urban camo - nice choice!
