Crossbreed SuperTuck worth cost?

I currently carry either a G22 or G23. Previously I had troubles finding a comfortable concealing holster as my body shape/weight didn't allow it very well. Well I made a life change and have now lost 105 lbs in 10 months and feel great! IWB were always out of the question before due to "dun-lop" disease (belly dun-lopped over my belt). But now want to carry that way for deeper concealment. I have read a lot of good things about the SuperTuck, but as I can't find one to try on, I am reluctant to order one, as it will be about 90 bucks with extra clips and horsehide. Any advice?

IMO yes, I own 6 of them, one for every gun I would potentially carry.

You can check www.crossbreedseconds.com also. It's blemish holsters mostly, but they work fine and are cheaper if you want to try one before you pay full price.

FWIW, shipping times are currently really good. I placed an order on Saturday 12/20 and it shipped today Monday 12/29 despite the Christmas holiday last week.

I will add, their warranty is excellent also. I cracked the kydex shell on one of mine during a training class. The holster was 2 years old, and had been through 5 other classes and worn by me daily, in other words, beat to piss. I emailed them, shipped it back, and 2 days later I had a brand new holster, no questions asked.

Well I'm pretty convinced, just hard to shell out that cash, hate to add to the "box of holsters" again with one so expensive. I keep checking the seconds page, but the right hand supertucks for glocks are snatched up fast!

I have two of them in horsehide. Awesome holsters with one exception - they creak like a saddle. I'm talking ridiculously loud. I have put saddle soap, leather conditioner etc. and no improvement. It's to the point where I can't even wear them to church anymore as every time I move in my seat it sounds like I'm dismounting from a horse.

I've read many other reviews stating the same problem but in most cases it gets better. Mine hasn't though. It's ok if I condition it just before using it but it only lasts a day or so. Otherwise it is by far the most comfortable and concealable holster I have owned. I have one for my G23 & G22 and one for my Nano and they are both noisy.

Do you know if they will consider this covered by the lifetime warranty? I wonder if just getting a brand new one solves the problem (after the break-in period).

Not sure. I haven't looked into the warranty figuring it would eventually go away. Maybe I'll condition them every day for a week straight and see what happens. My concern with doubt that is that it will eventually soften the leather too much. We'll see.

I have the horsehide super tuck for my 23. At first it was very stiff and dry so I applied mink oil to soften and condition the hide. I reapply the mink oil every 2-3 months. No squeaks and very comfortable to wear all day. FYI...the mink oil only slightly darkens the hide. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have a locally made exact duplicate, and it is awesome!

I haven't tried mink oil yet. I'll give that a shot and see how it does. Thanks!

I'd use talc before I gummed it up with lubricants or softeners. Mine squeaks a bit. From fabric moving across the horsehide.

Baby powder will stop the squeak. Just put it between the clips and holster.
