DeSantis® 106 Sof-Tuck™ Inside-The-Waistband Handgun Holsters
I bought this holster for my M&P Shield 9mm. Although I had to do a lot of research to make sure which model was best suited for my gun, I love it. It fits great. I am a big guy so it has been a challenge to find something comfortable and concealable. The one is both. To save those of you who own Sheilds all the research time, the model I bought was listed for the Glock 26 and 27.

Smith Model 60
Fits the Smith Model 60 perfectly! Tried a nylon IWD and did not have the rigidity. This is perfect.

Bought this holster for concealed carry. I like the ease of placement and the nylon belt hook that keeps the holster in place when drawing the weapon. Very comfortable.

I was walking around the Bass Pro store in Mesa, AZ and decided to check out the holster section. I was in the market for an Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster for my Glock 26 9mm subcompact I carry when I'm off duty. I initially saw the Blackhawk Inside the Pants holster but was concerned about the quality because it was only $15 and appeared flimsy. I own other Blackhawk products so I thought I would give it a try. I took it home and tried it out once but soon returned it to the store. The product material was thin. Imagine putting cutting your sock in half, putting a plastic belt clip on it, and using that as an IWB holster. There was no dexterity. I couldn't reholster my weapon and my Glock just didn't feel that secure when I was wearing it.
After I returned the Blackhawk Inside the Pants holster at the store I went back upstairs to check out some other IWB holsters. I needed enough dexterity to reholster my weapon but I didn't want anything stiff that would poke me and be a thorn in my side (get it, ha!) so I thought I would probably get a leather one. I saw the DeSantis Sof-Tuck and decided to take it home and try it out. Since I purchased it I have been very pleased. The suede leather is soft on my skin and smooth on my gun. The stiff upper leather portion adds enough dexterity that allows me to reholster my gun. The leather will also mold to the exact shape of your gun after you wear it enough times. Initially I was looking for an IWB holster that also had some sort of clasp or strip of material across the top to prevent my gun from falling out. With the DeSantis Sof-Tuck holster my gun feels snug enough against my body that I am not too worried about it falling out. Please note, if you are in law enforcement I would NOT recommend this holster for any sort of duty carry (UC Ops). There is no Level 1 retention, so the last thing you want is to be chasing some suspect or be rolling around on the ground with some drug dealer who is putting up a fight and your gun falls out!
