Bianchi® 100 Professional Inside-the-Waistband Holster
Good quality with design flaws
Bianchi has a reputation of building pretty solid performance leather gear. I've had their LE duty holsters over the years. The model 100 is a quality, substantial piece of gunhide that is well constructed. It looks good, and the protective "flap" is an innovation that I have found on no other IWB holster. This is a nice feature if you carry without a shirt tucked in. I found this the most comfortable carry method because a tucked in shirt just adds bulk. This would be a perfect concealed carry IWB holster if it had a reinforced opening that made reholstering easier. As it is, holstering the firearm with the holster in place is very difficult, if not impossible. I cannot reholster my Kimber Ultra II without removing the holster, then reinserting it in the carry position. Once in position, however, the holster is very comfortable, retains the firearm well and snug against the body. Works well in the cross-draw position as well as the 4-5 position. It is also very good for SOB carry, but if you're right-handed, get the left handed version so the butt of the gun will face your strong side. The metal belt retainer clip is very stout. All in all, this is an average IWB holster that is constructed really well and is reasonably comfortable to carry. The downside is difficult to impossible reholstering.

Bought this holster for my ruger lcp 380. The holster is very nice conceal carry holster and so far has kept my gun dry from sweat on hot days. After a few days of wearing it to break it in it is a very comfortable holster.
Would recommend to anyone and I am planning on buying another.

Just purchased this holster last week for my ATI MS380, the fit is excellent and after a couple of days wearing and break in, conceals nicely. Wish it was a little cheaper.
