Best leather IWB holster for G21

I am looking for the best IWB holster for my G21, something that keeps it low in the waistband and deeply concealed. Im not much of a fan of kydex because of the faster wear on the slide so I would like to stay with leather. Ive also seen an all leather version of the crossbreed supertuck and was wondering what it is called and where I could get one?

As far as kydex and wear, whatever it is that made you think it's tough on the finish, you are mistaken! I have/had a Comptac Infidel, for a G30/29, 20/21, 17/22, 23/19, and after years of carry show no evidence of wear on the slide, whatsoever! On the other hand, I have a Milt Sparks Summer Special two, which is a fabulous holster BTW, and believe me you, it shows wear, on the slide of a 1911!!!!

So, if it absolutely, positively, needs to be leather, I say find a Milt Sparks that tickles your fancy, but for the G21, I chose the Comptac Infidel!
If guns kill people, then, I can blame my pencil on my spelling!

If one holster was the best we would all be wearing it and there wouldn't be so many holster makers. "Best" is very subjective and based on a number of factors.

I recommend the Wraith IWB by Seth's Gun Leather ( I have one for a 3" S&W 65. I can carry a bulky, steel revolver all day with total comfort. It's similar to the Milt Sparks VMII, but you could probably get it in 6-8 weeks instead of 6-8 months.

I have a "Mike's Special" IWB with the reinforced mouth made by Tim at for my Springfield XD9 sub compact that is the best holster I've ever owned. The "Mike's Special" rides up to an inch lower than his other IWB and also has a little more foward cant depending on the firearm that the holster is made for.

I currently carry my G36 in a Comp Tac Minotaur MTAC which works very well but like you I still prefer all leather. I plan on getting a "Mike's Special" for my G36 as well.

u can sharpen a razor with leather...not really so with kydex. Kinda makes you wonder what that does to the gun finish over time.

Used to use a galco summer comfort. Wasn't bad at all. But my comp tac mtac is my fav right now.
