I've had a couple of Crossbreeds (different guns). I found that I don't care for the hybrid style. For IWB, I only like all-leather holsters.

For hybrid holsters, you might also look at Theis holsters and Comp-Tac Minotaur.

I use a Galco IWB for my Glock 19, which is identical in size to the 23. I'm not sure of the model name of the holster but it works very well, sorry I don't have any experience with the brands you listed.

Personally i dont like iwb carry. It digs in and hurts like hell in a car or if your in a tight space or have to bend a certain way. Ive got a king tuck iwb 1911 holster, sans gun its prolly the most uncomfortable holster ive ever had.

I know "your not wearing it right"... well ive had people who know how tell me that and show me where to wear it and its not any better.

I either carry owb or pocket carry

Just my opinion.

+1 on the N82 tactical IWB holster. Extremely comfortable. I hear good things about your other 2 options though.

Agree with Jon. IWB is only comfortable while standing or walking, otherwise it's a pure PITA. That said, IMHO it's the best way to conceal, at least for me.

After 15 years off CC, I got a cheap IWB and loved it (uncle mikes). I finally spent some $ on a king tuk. It works great for me and the kydex makes it easy to re holster. It is a PITA to re holster with my leather or nylon. Lots of training means lots of drawing and re holstering. The kydex has started to crack in one corner from constant use.
I can see why some do not like IWB. It can be painful for some body shapes. It is not a slight pain at all in any position. Except maybe lying on that side but I don't do that often while carrying.

I use on a daily basis an inexpensive pro carry IWB holster from the Holster Store, its about $30 with shipping. Inside the holster is my daily CCW a Taurus PT740 slim. It's super comfortable to point I can't even tell its there.

I just ordered a Hybrid from SHTF Gear, same style of holster as the King Tuck and the Cross Breed etc. They have a add on for 8 bucks where you can get leather belt loops, instead of the metal belt clips, lifetime warranty, free replacement clips, and made in the USA!! Ive only ever carried my XD .45 in the Galco summer comfort, so this will be new for me.
