N8 Squared Tactical Colt XSE holster

I'm looking for opinions of those who have used the N8 Squared Tactical Colt XSE holster.

It is an IWB holster for the 1911.

To those who have used it:
How did/do you like it?
Does the suede that is in contact with your body cause moisture problems or heat buildup?
Does the size of the holster work for a 3 to 4 o'clock carry position?
Do you find that the handgun is secure and will not fall out?

The design seems to put a large area of the holster in contact with the body.

Thanks in advance for your time to reply.

I can't comment on that particular holster, but I have carried my Rossi 462 in N8 Squared holster for a couple of years now and I can say without hesitation that it is the most comfortable IWB holster I have ever used. Can't say that I have ever had a problem with the heat or moisture issue. As the foam backed leather conforms to the shape of the gun, retention is excelent. I wasn't a fan of IWB carry until I purchased this holster. Now about 50% of the time, I carry IWB.
