My white hat holster maxtuck has good retention. It is horsehide and I love it. I've written while working outside and sweating. It has yet to go through to the gun.mikecu said:I have a CrossBreed Super Tuck that looks similar to the Theis and Foxx holsters. If I was going to purchase one of this style, I would probably go with the Foxx due to the lower price(I didn't buy mine, it came with a pistol purchase). I find it to be comfortable, but, I think that these types of holsters are built cheaply. The retention in kydex on leather type is next to zero.
I like the comfort and quality of the Milt Sparks IWB holsters better.
I think that horsehide is better in hotter/humid climates.
I have a Maxxtuck in horsehide and love it. I live in Houston so humid and hot but I think horsehide just has a tighter grain and does not soak up sweat like cowhide. I wear mine all the time and it is hot here and there are no sweat marks ar anything on mine. Comfortable rig in the heat. Just my .02.Seems that horsehide is recommended for hotter/humid climates. Is it the humidity that makes horsehide preferable? I live in Las Vegas, very hot but low humidity.
It is for hot or humid or both climates. If you will be sweating profusely which I imagine you will in Las Vegas, then horsehide would probably be a better choice.Seems that horsehide is recommended for hotter/humid climates.
