    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. ;)

    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;

    Cowhide or Horsehide?

    You beat me to the punch

    I was going to suggest TommyTheis as well. Best bang for the buck plus you wouldnt have to wait a month to get it. I think i got mine within a week! Im sticking to Tommy for my holster needs:D

    It took me about a month to get my holster from crossbreed and I live in the next town over from where they make them.

    I love it. The retention is great and can be sent back to the to be adjusted as needed or they send instructions for you to do it yourself but it's seems like a process I didn't want to do. But I would wait until it wears in before you decide if the retention needs to be adjusted. Mine loosened uped to where it was perfect for my Glock 23.

    Crossbreed also has a lifetime warranty and the owner of the company is a great guy.

    I have a Crossbreed Supertuck that I carry my Kimber Ultra Carry in and I absolutely LOVE it! It is extremely comfortable and has many adjustments to help you get it to set exactly where you want it. I paid $68 bucks for mine in a LGS. You won't be disappointed though!

    I had a cross breed super tuck . To stiff for me. Give to a buddy and bought a comp-tac. he also bought a comp-tac. More flexable and offers the ablity to change holsters for a different brand pistol, also has tension adjustment with more design options.

    I've never had a crossbreed, but from what I hear they're nice. However, everything I read when I was looking for an IWB pointed towards a Comp-Tac and I love it. Since you have a supertuck on order I would try comp-tac or tommy theis next, that way you can compare the two and not wear out one particular holster if you carry a lot. I'm sure they're all fine once they get broken in.

    Hey cane, you know you can play with the retension on the crossbreed right? If you aren't comfortable doing it yourself you can send it back to them and they will do it for you. You can also just send it back if you aren't happy with it.
