    IWB Holsters

    Are they sort of all the same? Currently using an AlienGear holster for my XD9. Its...ok. Gets a little uncomfortable after all day sitting at a desk. Recently got a ConcealmentExpress OWB holster and I like it. Their IWB (hybrid) looks almost like the same setup that I already have though. I'm guessing its just the nature of CC? I need to full conceal, tucked in shirt with khakis sitting at a desk for ~7h a day.

    There really any other options? The XD9 I think is too large for a pocket holster and the like.

    Thoughts? Thanks.

      So they're pretty much based off the same idea then. Kind of what I figured.

        I like the Comptac Minotaur, comfortable enough for all day, you'll know it's there, but not be uncomfortable and/or resent it being there, IMO.

            Try a different holster. I personally don't like the AlienGear holster I have for my LC9S. I went to an all leather one and am much happier. I use kydex ones for my SR9 and my 1911, I have been very happy with those. I feel like the neoprene of the AlienGear sticks to my body and does not allow any movement and that's what makes it uncomfortable,

              I use kydex taco holsters for everything from a g43 to a fullsize 1911. I have a couple of different hybrids and dont like em. I can wear a taco on the side, back even appendix. I make em real tight to the gun without alot of extra material and have several mounting holes so I can adjust the depth of carry and the cant.

                  Forgive me as I'm a little hazy on the terms, but a hybrid is referring to the wider setup? And taco is the narrower one that covers the same area as the firearm? I think I have that correct.

                  So the taco one you find more comfortable, huh? That's the thing, the wide AlienGear one seems to take up a lot of room. I'll have to give the smaller holsters (taco) a try then.

                        Well. That just makes too much sense.

                          I bought the Alien Gear ShapeShift after trying a couple of minimalistic IWB holsters. I just started trying the IWB after years of OWB carry. I like it because of the neoprene backing but mostly for the adjustability. I've found through the years that any holster, IWB or OWB, can be a complete pain in the side or very comfortable and offer maximum concealment depending on the ride height and cant. I'm sure that perfect combo is different for everyone but when you get it right it just works.

                            The split leather backer keeps the sweat down, and the kydex snaps the pistol in tight.
                            fully adj. Is a plus.
                            you will end up getting several till ya hit on a good one.
                            I sent the a.g. stuff right back.

                            both the 11 and glock wear very well with these guys.

                              Yea I went though a few till I got a Crossbreed MiniTucK. Tried them because they are made a few hours from me, kept it because it's by far the the most comfy one I've worn. They need a referral system because I've got 5-6 buddies that have them now.
