Looking to get a basic inexpensive clip holster from Fist for a usp compact. They offer it in leather, and two thicknesses of kydex. If you have either, gimme some feedback...

But feedback suggests they offer excellent quality for the money.
That said, more money often buys more quality....

"Box of holsters..."

I have a Bruce Nelson/Avenger style holster and matching belt from FIST, and they have given excellent service. I know they did some pioneering work in stitching thin kydex as if it were leather, but I haven't actually handled any examples. They were very accommodating when I ordered my holster, actually making a custom modification to the pattern to better fit my gun, and at no charge.

I have about ten Fist holsters, along with a number of Don Hume, Highnoon, and TTgunleather holsters. The Fist holsters are a good buy for the money- look at the "holster option" part of their website and consider adding a body shield-sweat guard (they used to be an extra $8.00) so you don't sweat on your pistol or get gun oil on your shirt. Good luck.

I have one in the ultra thin Kydex for a G36 and I'm happy with it. The Kydex is very thin, but it looks like it will hold up well for the money spent.

I own eleven FIST holsters! I have several FIST #1 clip holsters for a number of different guns. I have found FIST to produce quality holsters at a quality price. Have never had to wait for than 2-3 weeks. Based on my experience I recommend FIST without reservation.

I ordered a #20 adjustable from them with a combo single mag carrier for my HK PSP P7from them on 10/24, and they just arrived today. I will try to get some pictures up later.

This product is VERY nice-looking! I am very pleased with the quality of construction and finish.

I already have a Crossbreed Supertuck for my Sig 239, and this model from Fist seemed to be a good analogue in leather due to the adjustability for ride height and cant.

Okay, I managed to take some pics for anyone who is interested.

Front view. Note the mag carrier has slots and straps for IWB/OWB.

Back view. Note the holes for adjusting cant and ride height.

My current carry rig for comparison. Since I am still new to carrying, I like the adjustability these holsters offer.

My camera doesn't do this holster justice. I am impressed with the quality of the leather and the finish. It is good and stiff as well. I will be carrying this more often, so I can decide later how comfortable it is, but I am pleased with the hoster after the initial try-on.
