Crossbreed Holsters makes some excellent products. I think they might be one of the best concealed carry holster manufacturers on the market. I have been wearing a Crossbreed Supertuck for some time now, and wrote this article to review the holster for the Crossbreed guys.
I have included a video (which became the most popular review on Youtube) and I have included several pics of me wearing the holster.
The first thing you need to notice is that it is quality constructed. It is made with a genuine cowhide backing and kydex sheath. After you wear the holster a few times the cowhide backing begins to conform to the unique contours of your body. That is probably what makes this holster so comfortable. I’m going to post my video review of the holser, then post a few pics of me wearing the holster, then give some closing thoughts about the holster. Definitely check out crossbreedholsters.com.
The holster conceals easily under a T-Shirt as seen below:
Here’s a pic of my T-shirt tucked in while wearing the Crossbreed Supertuck at the 5:00 o’clock position. Not much printing going on here. My dark pants and dark belt make it easy for the black hooks to blend in. You have to look really hard to see them. If you are in a well lit place, they will be much more obvious.
Here’s a few pics with my shirt tucked in and the holster at 3 o’clock position. Wearing dark pants helps the black hooks to blend in again. I know in these pics you can’t even see the black metal hooks, but they are there. Depending on where you are, and the lighting involved, you could easily wear your shirt tucked in and nobody would know you were carrying (and wearing dark clothes helps conceal those black hooks). In the video review, I wear grey slacks and the black hooks are much easier to see. If I had worn black slacks in that video, the hooks would not be visible.
And finally, a pic of me wearing the holster in the car after visiting the range (hence the ear plugs). You can see that the holster doesn’t present any problems for anyone who wants to wear it while driving. If you are going to wear it while driving, make sure you practice (with an unloaded weapon) drawing from the holster in a seated position.
I have practiced several emergency draws from this holster and it is great for emergency draws. It is very comfortable. I wore it for 6 hours at the zoo the other day and had no problems. The leather squeaks for the first day or two that you wear it, but that annoying sound quickly goes away once you break it in. The Kydex sheath prevents any inadvertent trigger pull. I have no problem carrying one in the chamber when I’m wearing this holster because I know that Kydex sheath (and the 3 glock safeties) will prevent any negligent discharge. The best thing about Crossbreed Holsters is that they stand behind their product. First, Crossbreed Holsters is the home of the 2 Week Try It Free Guarantee. They let you try the holster risk free for 2 weeks, and if you don’t like it, you can send it back no questions asked. They also have a lifetime guarantee, “If your holster should need any repair as long as you own it, just return it…and I will repair or replace it at no charge.” That’s the guarantee straight from the sales letter.
I’m not one of those people who get to picky about holster retention (how tightly the holster holds the gun in place). Crossbreed sends you instructions on how to adjust the retention (tighter or looser), but I found it to be perfect and did not need any adjusting. You can also send it back to them to have the tension adjusted if needed. There is an audible click when you holster the gun as it locks in place inside of the Kydex sheath. For those of you who don’t know, Kydex is a thermoplastic material that is both durable and pliable. It makes for a great lightweight but strong holster.
If you are looking for a new holster, try the Crossbreed Supertuck. It’s risk free. If you don’t like it, just send it back. I’m betting this will become one of your favorite holsters and you will never send it back.
