Nathaniel F did a review back in January, and since then a few other reviews have popped up:

And the below video review:

A number of you had good things to say (in comments on Nathaniel’s post) and I’ve also heard from a buddy of mine that he recently started carrying in one and recommends it so I may have to give it a try.

In any case you have a shot at a $50 gift card for sharing their photo!

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    I’d love an AG holster, but I’m not a bored upper middle-class housewife so I don’t have a pinterest.

      for 50 bucks and a 60 dollar holster, it takes 5 minutes.

    Nice design! I’ll stick with the original, Crossbreed

    • SM

      In your opinion, how do you think the hordes of hybrid-style holsters compare to Crossbreed?

      • uisconfruzed

        As a sometimes tinkerer I chose to pay the inventor for the original, not someone else copying them.
        A friend of mine got an Alien for $35 because it looked just like mine. It’s nice, the backing is twice as thick & I prefer the suede side of the leather against me, it breathes/feels better.
        My son got the Galco, it’s @ the same to the Alien to me.
        I only wear mine when I’m tucking in a shirt/deeper concealment.
        The best & most comfortable IWB holster is one I made 20yrs ago. I still haven’t seen anything like it. Slips on and off like a paddle, wear it anywhere around the waist, belt loops don’t interfere, and secure.
        It comes down to try as many as you can side by side to see what works for you.

          Actually, Comp-Tact was making them long before Cross Breed. And before that Tucker gun leather. Cross breed is far from the original.

            Hmm, now I’ve got to look into this.

    used to have an Alien gear, but I got sick of the bulk and switched to Dara
