I don’t love IWB holsters. They always seem to pinch, bind, or otherwise impede the motions made in everyday life. But, then I found a CrossBreed – combination of a polymer mold and leather posting material. I tested the SuperTuck Deluxe version with standard belt clips and a combat cut.

Let me start by saying, I’m a fan. Why?

  1. The holster was easy to affix to my belt with my jeans on – 5-10 seconds. It’s also very easy to remove at the end of the day.
  2. The flexibility and cut of the leather posting material makes this holster very comfortable to wear all day long or longer.
  3. The polymer mold is sufficient to adequately hold my 1911 in place, despite quick, radical movements.
  4. This holster fits and hides well. I have often worn a t-shirt as concealment, and there is very little printing on the material.
  5. The only issue I have with the holster is deployment. During the initial grip and rip process, I often have trouble getting my thumb seated properly during to the cut of the leather near the beavertail on the 1911 model. This takes some work. This isn’t an insignificant issue. I was able to work with the angle of the clips to the belt, and I found some small levels of improvement.

Bottom line, this holster rates a

(a solid 5 fists if the deployment issue is ever resolved).
