Default Kydex holsters

Having a hard time making a decision on what holster to get. I have a XD service model with a 4 inch barrel and want to get a good holster. This will be my first Kydex holster. I want to get one that can be used as OWB concealed carry. I would like to have one that can be used as IWB also. There are a lot of companies that make them. Can't decide. Been looking at Fury holsters, Bravo concealment and Multiholsters. Anyone have experience with these or other brands? Any help or pointers would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hidden Hybrid Holsters! I own 2 of their holsters for my S&W M&P .40C and my Sig P250. Their holsters can be worn IWB or OWB and are AWESOME!

I've got a Blackhawk Serpa CQC that I like. It locks the handgun in place and is easy and natural to release. I'm really not worried about anyone snatching my gun but if I run to get across a street I don't want to hear it hit the ground either. It can't be use IWB but I don't think I want a hard Kydex holster inside my waist band anyway. I would rather have leather for IWB. The Blackhawk come with the option of belt mount or paddle for less than $50. Mine is for a Springfield Armory XDS 45 acp.

In a Serpa the retention tab is released with the trigger finger. My 5.11 kydex holster is similar, but it has a thumb release.

Check out N82 tactical. They are IWB holsters but they aren't too expensive and are far more comfortable than any IWB or OWB holster I've found so far. They have some with a clear plastic, not sure if it's kydex, or you can get elastic to hold it to the suede backing. My elastic version will hold anything under 4" barrel, though it's a little harder to reholster.

I use an X-Concealment kydex holster and love it. I wear it every day off-duty. www.x-concealment.com

I ended up buying a holster from Fury Carry Solutions. I'll post pics when I can. Great holster. Very comfortable. Excellent quality.

Here is my Fury holster. It is their stone gray kydex which I think looks great. Fits my service model XD perfectly. It has a ten degree cant that conceals very well. I have been toying around with different belt loop configurations to try and find the most comfortable/easiest conceilability. Not sure that's a word but sounds good ha.

Edit: 20 degree cant

Does yours have the sweat resistant backing? I'm trying to find out what that's made of but the web site doesn't say.
