Just nail a holster to a piece of drywall, it'd be cheaper.

What's the difference between the "Lifetime Warranty" and the "90 day Gaurantee"?

I got my new holster from Kholster on friday I wore it all weekend...wow very surprised with the quality of the holster its outstanding,the kydex part hugged my G21 perfectly retention was perfect reholstering was smooth...the leather was very clean cut smooth on one side (kidex side) the other side was a little raw like suade but a little rougher,the clips are sturdy and strong it really hugs my 1 1/2" 5.11 belt perfectly... you can adjust it in several positions I was surprised how my G21 concealed. It was very confortable to wear, it literally disapeared on my waist band, I wore it a little deep at 4:00 oclock position with no hasles. I was trying to decide between the Crossbreed or the M-tac before but I couldn justify the $80.00 price tag for a simple design.I found Kholster after doing some research its a new company and I belive they are going to give Crossbreed and M-tac some good competition.. Boy im glad I decided to go with Kholster its the best $33.50 I've ever spent...It was very confortable out of the bag It could only get better after I brake it inn...I rate it a solid A+ Im parking my Kramer #2 in horsehide for a while...Ill post pics as soon as possible... THX

It looks like a knock-off of the Crossbreed at half the price. I'd imagine it would be pretty comfortable after breaking in. Seems like it would be hard to get a full hand grip on the gun quickly though if it holds tight against all that leather up there.

I had no problem with the grip portion of it..On the one I purchased the grip portion was a little differrent on my G21 the grip was more exposed.. That picture on their website posted must have been a prototype..Mines the leather portion on the Kydex side was very smooth and clean also the holes for the clips adjusting was much cleaner..Ill post pics soon,I will also post a discount code I got from them you can all use for ordering.

Just another in the chain of knock-offs. The Crossbreed wasn't created from an idea that occurred one day in the shower, either.

Gee, I wonder who was first with a hybrid IWB holster?

Who knows the answer?

Oh, yeah! "The Answer."

Still made with the best leather money can buy, and worth every penny.

Oh, well, those who know, know that already.

Merry Christmas from Tucker Gunleather.

Looks like it might be worth a try. I'm not sure why someone dissed it with the drywall comment.

From the pictures on the web, it looks like you wouldn't be able to get a full grip on your handgun due to the kydex rolling out or being too high above the trigger guard.

the leather its against your skin like a second skin effect I can draw and reholster it with no issues the leather doesnt get in the way at all and If you dont like it you can always trim it at your liking...hey for $33.50 delivered Im very happy with it.. I have been wearing it every day now and its very confortable with my G21 in it.

I have one for my XD 40 and was going to order one for my glock 23, but an unknown source that isn't happy to have competition is trying to shut kholster down. :(
For someone to be able to patent a holster and enforce it is amazing. I guess they beat the bigger guys to the punch but don't want to go after them because the likes of Galco has a much larger legal department.
I hope Kholster pulls through as I won't spend the outrageous prices for the Tucker Gun Leather or Comp-Tac Minotaurs.

Interesting point of view. We're not involved in trying to shut Kholster down. I didn't try to shut Crossbreed or Minotaur down either. We have plenty of business and people do want holsters at different price points and quality levels. No harm, no foul.

KHolster all the way.... I would never have worn an IWB holster without this fine holster at such a reasonable price.

I got a Kholster for my M&P .45 fullsize. I trimmed down the leather so that I could get my hand around the grip. The leather will hamper your draw if you don't.

The clips are metal and you can tuck in your shirt while wearing it.

Great holster for the price.

Kholster

I ordered a Kholster for my G27 on Friday night and recieved it on Wednesday or Thursday of the next week. So far it is really great. When I first got it, I did very little adjusting to the clips, then strapped it on and waited for my wife to get home. We made dinner, cleaned up, and sat together on the couch for about 30 minutes before I told her that I had it on, and she said that she never noticed. Pretty good seeing as I'm only 5'10" and 150lbs. It seems to work equally well with jeans and t-shirt as it does with dress pants and tucked in shirt and tie. Overall, excellent quality so far. Couldn't be happier.

It seems that most every KHolster owner has had to modify their KHolster in some way. This tells me that the design still has some kinks that need to be worked out. The CrossBreed SuperTuck looks like a more mature design. The only modifications that are typically made are trimming leather for a combat grip because the owner didn't purchase that option initially or changing out clips. A holster is something that you're going to be wearing for years. Spend a little money, and get something worth wearing.

After reading lots of comments and suggestions on several different forums, I decided to go with the Kholster. I ordered on Sunday, it shipped on Monday, and I received it on Wednesday. I am very happy with this holster. It's not fancy but it is VERY functional. The smooth side of the leather is on the back (on your skin), and feels much better than a gun rubbing against you. I bought mine for my Glock 26 and it fits like a glove; easy to draw, but won't fall out when held upside down. In a pinch, I could use it for my Kel-Tec PF-9 or Walther P22, although the fit is a tad loose. The metal belt clips are quite sturdy and it stays put, with the gun snug against the body. Cant and depth are adjustable, and the leather could be trimmed to suit your individual needs. Jimmy, the owner, got right back to me when I emailed him a couple of questions.

It has a 90 day satisfaction guarantee (you pay the shipping), and a lifetime warranty.

It is $45, including shipping but if you enter a discount code in the 'special instructions' box you get a 10% rebate. (If you need a code: 336879)

I am not associated with this company, just a happy customer. I have only used the holster a couple of days, but it is very comfortable. For usability and price, it is a great value, IMHO.

Com-Tac, Crossbreed, kholster

I do not YET own a Kholster, however, I do own one Tucker "Answer", several Crossbreed Holsters, one Com-Tac. Here are my opinions (for what they're worth):
The Tucker has plastic clips that tend to slip off my belt. I didn't like that one as much. No offense to anyone!
The Com-Tac is a little better, but the same problem. No offense to anyone!

I have Crossbreed Holsters for my Glock 26/27, and another for my Ruger LCP. I now carry a Kahr P45 and the Ruger LCP for backup. I like the Crossbreed holster and here's why: The Crossbreed offers a forward rake I like, tuckable, a good "SNAP" when I holster the weapon, meaning a great fit in the Kydex part. The new metal clips hold on VERY tight, and I don't worry at all about dropping the gun. Customer service is great. Good job, Mark!

I also plan to buy a Kholster to see what I think about it. It looks pretty good, especially for the price. Here's why: I want something tuckable- check. I need something to protect my rib cage from "slide bite" (the crescent shape will help with this)- check. I want something I can wear anytime any place and multiple places on my body (point of the hip, kidney, SOB)- Kholster looks like it might work for that. I want unlimited forward rake. I like a forward rake because I am not a big guy and grips tend to cause obvious "bulges" the back of my shirt. The forward rake lifts the grip up and forward above my "love handles" to make a triangle shape.
I am an NRA instructor and I don't want to stand at the front of the classroom telling people that I don't have holster ideas for them. Therefore, I test what I can get my hands on. Look for my opinions later.
