    I've had leather, nylon fabric, and Kydex...

    Kydex is my favorite because of 1) the low-profile 2) solid feel and 3) quick release

    I voted for Kydex since I make my own Kydex holsters.

    I like my leather and my kydex. I like the leather cause it an iwb. And its the first one I bought. I like my kydex cause its light weight. And durable. I'm getting ready to buy a cross breed and have the best of both worlds.

    I put leather because I normally CC in with a Galco. I perfer a good kydex paddle holster when I can wear one.

    It really depends.

    I like leather for daily carry because it is more comfortable, but I prefer kydex for carry in the field because it will stand up to water better. By “in the field” I mean out hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, etc. when you are in the woods or mountains and may have a close encounter of the wet kind.

    Kydex paddle for me, It doesn't stretch, good retention, easy to remove. I like leather but during the summer months it can get sweat soaked and stinky.

    I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop!
