So comfortable that you will sometimes forget you even have it on.
Placed my order for my second Milt Sparks VersaMax-2 a couple of months ago for my XD-S .45. They charged my credit card today so that is the sign that it shipped today. I love how they don't charge you until the order is complete. On their website they state that they don't believe in charging anything until it is a complete product that is ready to ship.
This one cost me $175 but I got it in black horsehide with sharkskin patch and loops. I figured that if I'm going to be spending a bunch on a nice holster I should just go all out. Some folks asked why I picked horsehide over cowhide was pretty simple. House is more water repellant. I tend to sweat heavily during these hot Oklahoma summers and didn't want my premium holster to be a premium sweat sponge.
Once I get it in I will post pics of both VM-2's and the awesome cargo they carry. I've also found out that if you have the VM-2 for the XD-S it will work perfectly for the .45 and 9MM version. My wants a XD-S 9MM.
