Lead time on crossbreeds are about 6 wks. Carried a Glock 17 in one for over a year and broke in nice. Its a holster you can wear all day w/o any complaints. I always recommend a crossbreed for a polymer frame semi-auto

Crossbreed is what I have for my EDC and I like it a lot. Sometimes I forget I have a pistol.

I have one for my Taurus Millennium and my XD40. They are so comfortable that you'll almost forget you are packing. I've had the one for my Taurus about 14 months and it's broken in nicely. The one for my XD isn't broken in yet since I don't use it as much but I've only had it a couple of months yet but it's still very nice and comfy.

Before you cash out on the Xbreed Supertuck take a look at Tommy Theis' offerings. These holsters are far better in the fit and finish department.

Theisholsters.com | Products | Custom IWB Holsters

His prices are better and include shipping.

No matter what holster you get, be sure to order it with the Kydex Clips. I prefer the J-Clips, they hide better. The metal clips will ruin a good carry belt.

I have both. My Xbreed Super Tuck was not securely holding my BHP (failed the up-side-down shake test) and to save $ I got it in cowhide. I need horsehide here in south Florida. The Xbreed came with the standard metal clips which was ruining my carry belt. (belt cost more than holster!) My Xbreed cost me $69.75 + $8.95 shipping = $78.70

I started to look for an alternitive. Goju suggested Tommy Theis holsters and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Theis holster I ordered is horsehide with Kydex jclips and was $65 including shipping! It is belt friendly, just as comfortable as the Xbreed and passes the up-side-down shake test!

A Supertuck in horsehide and Kydex jclips is $94.75 + $8.95 shipping = $103.70

IMHO, it was a no-brainer.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The "upside-down-shake" test is not relevant for an IWB holster in my opinion, since retention is considerably enhanced once the holster is worn around the waist, hopefully with a good gun belt tightened appropriately.

I've worn a SuperTuck Deluxe for a number of years, with very acceptable results. As canebrake points out, the horsehide backing is an option worth considering in humid climates or for people who tend to perspire a lot.

CrossBreed transitioned from the kydex belt clips to metal ones due to complaints of the breakage of the kydex clips. I've use both and the metal ones definitely have a longer life span, and to combat the tendency of the metal to scar up my gunbelt's finish, I installed some sticky-backed felt inside the clip and have experienced no problem since.

CrossBreed does offer a 10% discount to law enforcement, military, and to NRA members. See the FAQs on their website.

Their holsters carry a lifetime warranty against failure under "normal use" conditions, too.

Cane, so the horsehide is better than the cowhide? I will be ordering a tommy theis shortly myself.

You will love it! I'm wearing mine right now and can wear it all day without issue. (That's with an all steel BHP w/16 rds.)

My xgreed is cowhide and it can really soak up the S Florida humidity when the readings are in the 92º/95% level. And it can take days to dry out even in the A/C.

My Tommy Theis is Horsehide and I can say there is a ton of difference! BUT....with no downside, it's as comfortable as the xgreed.

As for Horsehide vs Cowhide;

Best answers yet:

Cowhide or Horsehide?

Mr ED vs Clara Bell
