    IWB holster for Glock 26.


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I'm in the market for a concealed carry holster for my Glock 26. Before I flop down some cash on a good holster I was wondering what most of you Glock carriers use. I'm torn between kydex and leather. I've been looking at the Don Hume JIT and a Desantis #M24 Tuck-This® II. I'm not really sure what is available in kydex. Summer carry and winter carry will depend greatly on what I carry and I'm not opposed to buying more than one to accommodate my wardrobe for the seasons. Of course practicing draws will be paramount.

    So help me out.

    Thanks.

    Crossbreed supertuck.... period.

    I've used 3 diff IWB holsters, two of them being bianchi's and I can tell you the supertuck trumps them all in terms of comfort.

    You don't really have to worry about tailoring your wardrobe to you carrying if you're carrying a gun that small + using an IWB holster.

    I'm 5'10 and 155lbs and I've carried a full size 1911 and a glock 22 while wearing fitted clothes. But then again I carry on my 5 o'clock so that helps tremendously. With a G26 and IWB you can pretty much carry it anywhere on your waist and wear anything without having to worry.

    Supertuck is the correct answer!

    I've been using a Don Hume IWB over 10 years with my Glock 36.It's perfectly molded,thin,stiff leather.I think it cost around $35 back then.I like it better than a lot of more expensive holsters I've owned.

    I'll agree with the others about the crossbreed supertuck. Stay away from the tuck this, I have one and its not very comfortable and for me it seems to be more of a pain to put on and take off.

    I highly recommend a hybrid holster of some sort. Whether it's Mtac, Kholster, Shielded, White Hat, Theis, etc., matters less, as long as it's adjustable for ride height and cant. Some people don't like the obvious crosses on the supertuck clips, as it can draw attention, and you don't want people asking why your clips have crosses, or why you have clips. I like the Comp Tac clips a lot, enough that I removed the metal clips that came with my Shielded Holster and replaced them with Comp Tac plastic clips. The advantages to the hybrid holsters are that they're very comfortable since the part that rests against your skin is flat leather which molds to your the shape of body, rather than leather or kydex that is molded to the shape of the gun, the kydex keeps the holster from collapsing when empty, they don't add much width, and the two clips spread apart distribute the weight so it's not all in one spot. Youtube reviews of specific holsters are quite handy.

    I bought this for my 26, see;

    http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/k1/K7.htm

    thin kydex w/kydex belt loops. Works great in our FL shorts and t-shirt weather. I use Pearce magazine bases FWIW.

    MaxTuck by White Hat Holsters. More options for your money than Crossbreed period. Much more adjustable and you can buy separate kydex shells for different guns for $20.

    That's where it all comes down to personal preference. I had a Milt Sparks VMII that I paid a lot of money for and would wear my Supertuck any day of the week over it. Ended up selling my Sparks.

    If you were wearing IWB concealed, why would the belt clips on the holster be visible?

    The Archangel is excellent if you carry appendix. Kydex, simple design and tension adjustable, the gun clicks in and is very secure,yet draws super fast.

    When carrying IWB, some holsters allow the shirt to be tucked in around the holster. In this case the holster is concealed but the clips are visible and might draw attention. IMO it is best to just wear a covering garment, and nobody sees nothin'.

    I edc my G17 in a Raven Concealment Phantom holster with the IWB over belt clips. It is very comfortable and holds the gun very well.

    However I have a Crossbreed SuperTuck on order as I have read excellent things about it.

    Because you can tuck your shirt in between the clips and the gun, hence concealing the gun even with a shirt tucked in and no other cover garment, which reveals the belt.
    Or, if you conceal with an open front cover garment (rather than a closed front, untucked one), the front clip will be farther forward on your body than the weapon is, and might be farther forward on your body than your cover garment is.

    No disrespect but I don't think wearing a gun in your waistband while having the shirt tucked in is a very good idea not to mention how odd/obvious it would look. If you need to use it how do you expect to be able to draw out quick enough?

    It's not necessarily obvious at all. A lot of people conceal this way because they have to, e.g., dress code at work.
    Yes, it's slower to draw when your shirt's tucked in covering the gun, but it beats not carrying or carrying off body.

    Here are the first two videos I found showing a pistol behind a tucked in shirt:

    I really like the Minotaur MTAC holster sold by Comp-Tac.

    It's a kydex/leather hybrid. Very comfortable and reasonably priced.
