Kydex Holster Makers you recommend

I’m really just trying to get a list of holster makers to study to determine what holsters to get for my shield plus.

Any you liked personally?

I'm a fan of JM Custom. Not cheap but they're very well made.
Join the GOA, SAF and the TSRA

I'm offended by people that are easily offended.

I like my Crossbreed

The different types of belt clips available are a plus.
All data is flawed, some just less so.

I have 2 for a G43&19

the 2” belt 3 o’clock traditional carry works really well on my exo pack hip belt also if you want to carry while hunting

T.Rex Arms makes a nice IWB holster

My preferred carry is IWB (3-4 o'clock position).

For full kydex construction I like BladeTech.

For multi-material (kydex with leather) , I like Aliengear.

How you plan to carry may move you to look at other manufacturers. I've read good things about Vedder holsters, but i haven't tried them. Their most popular line seems to be AIWB.

I ended up going back Ares Tactical. Matt is easy to communicate with, responsive and his product meets or exceeds expectation. He is not cookie cutter. He makes what you want.

I've used several over the years but I think I'm happiest now with Vedder. I have 3 different holsters of theirs.
