Comfy IWB Holster for 3913?

Have a S&W 3913 and I really like it. Has all the features I like in a semi auto carry gun. I use a nylon Desantis IWB holster for it, and after about 20 minutes in the car, it is uncomfortable. I bought a S&W Shield and it carries easier in that holster, but the weight difference is only about 4 ounces between the two and I can't imagine that making that much of a difference. Is there a better IWB holster for the 3913? I know some people just don;t take to IWB carry, and I might be one of those guys, but the gun is much better concealed that way.

IWB - I use a lightweight soft leather clip type. I carry it on my strongside, guess in about a 4 o'clock postition. I have to unbuckle my belt to work the gun in, but the thinness of the leather and the slide width of the 3913 makes it comfortable for me to carry all day. For OWB and CCW I carry in Bianchi 105 holster designed for a 1911. The 3913 in the 105 rides a little higher than my 1911 in that holster. For the carry of a spare mag, I use one of several nylon holsters that came with one of the knives or mutli-purpose-tools that I have laying around.

I carry mine IWB in a Bianchi Pistol Pocket. If I shift it into just the right position, it is rather comfortable and that model is a fine concealed carry gun.

Since there are so many different shapes among us shooters, there will be many recommendations that might not be right for you.

Crossbreed Holsters have a loyal following and I may look at them for any more pistols that I start carrying.

i want to clarify the link i posted. the link only shows the leather version. i order it with a "k" at the end of the model number, so that it comes in their ultra-thin kydex. it's awesome.
