    Crossbreed vs Max tuck?

    I am curious if anyone on here has used the Max Tuck holster by White hat holsters. I was looking at getting the croosbreed supertuck, and was doing some looking online and came across the max tuck. It looks to be almost identical to the crossbreed supertuck deluxe with the combat cut. It even comes in horsehide. I was thinking about the max tuck because you can change out the kydex part of the holster for different guns. Extra Kydex peices are 20$ versus another 80$ for a whole new holster. I was just curious if anyone owned one and what they thought of it before I buy one.

    Yeah. I saw that one but I'm not sure I like the idea of plastic clips. Probably wouldn't be a big deal but it just makes me nervous.

    I have a Crossbreed for my FNP-40 and I really enjoy it. It is certainly ugly but it is also extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. It is constructed very soundly and has held up very well for me.

    Got a crossbreed supertuck for my 1911 in yesterday and wore it all day. It really is the most comfortable holster I've tried; I think even more so than my usual OWB rig!

    I'm not yet used to drawing it so I've inadvertently dropped the magazine and have trouble quickly getting a good grip. The combat cut would likely help with those problems but I'm not sure I'd like the decrease in comfort.

    comp-tac

    checkout comp-tac...they are extremely high quality, made in USA, and offer great customer service... I am biased because I live in Houston where they are made, but they seem to have better fit/function than other kydex holsters I have used that either wear out one's finish out or do not fit properly...

    I also suggest taking a look at Kholster. It is my preference after seeing all those mentioned here so far and it is my choice for EDC. Crossbreed is good, but the warranty, option for ordering extra clips and customer service reputation outweigh Crossbreed's in my opinion.

    MAxTuck Comment

    Howdy, this is Tony from White Hat Holsters. just want to clarify, becuae I have been contacted several times from this thread and there is a little confusion. our hoslters do NOT come with plastic clips. That comment was referring to the Minotaur which does have plastic clips. Our standard hoslter comes with spring steel plain black metal clips. If I can provide any further info, please let me know. I would encourage you to try it out and if you dont like it you have 2 weeks to send it back for a full refund. Thanks for checking us out. Have a great day! We look forwrad to working FOR you in the near future!

    So does that mean that I should wait a couple of weeks before ordering one?

    How many inches does this add to your pant size? I am thinking about getting one for my Glock 17.

    Crossbreed's FAQ says to add 2" to your belt and pants sizes. I only have to let out my belt one notch (1") when I put on my SuperTuck and XD .40 subcompact (which is double-stack and roughly the same thickness as your Glock).

    For reference, I'm 5'11", 138#, with a ~31" waist size in most pants (minus the holster). Currently wearing 32" waist jeans with a 36" Amish belt holding up the pants and SuperTuck.

    Yeah, because that itty bitty cross will curse you with a slower than average draw right?

    So what are reasons 1-83495, or are you just intolerant of religious symbolism?

    I sat on this overnight to see if anybody else would chime in with the suggestion to ask the maker to not put the symbol on the product (the specific one you otherwise want to buy).

    Nobody did.

    So here I am, playing Captain Obvious, suggesting that you ask.

    This would be one reason that persuaded me to try the cross breed holster, and then I purchased a second one.

    A direct quote from the owner of the company.

    The Cross is there on purpose and will stay, it is not negotiable.

    There are far more folks who are not offended or are even inspired by it than there are those who are offended.

    We get lots and lots of compliments on the fact that we are not afraid to stand for our beliefs, and that includes the belief in Christ and His sacrifice for us, hence the Cross.

    It is integral to my company logo, my products and my life, I will not remove it.

    If that costs me a few sales, so be it.

    Well, I guess that's that. So much for Skid's idea (which I think is reasonable). I really don't care either way, they are still great holsters.

    Great compared to what? Surely you can not think it is better then the holster it was copied from?


    As a side note, the holsters he sells to KAHR for them to sell in their online store, do not have the cross stamped into the leather.
    The owner of KAHR is a family member of the founder of a different religious group.
    So it appears that when big orders are made, somebodies beliefs suddenly go out the window. Coincidence?

    Great as in comfortable and functional compared to other IWB holsters I have used.

    The second part I didn't know about. I'd be interested to see what the owner would say if directly questioned about it. Perhaps I will fire off an email.

    I honestly didn't get a Crossbreed for the reason of the symbols as well. That said, I also didn't like the fact that you had to modify it (or pay to have it "factory modified") with the combat cut to get a better draw. I ordered a Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC and love it. The clips are quite strong (I've tried to break them with pull/push force on my belt - I ordered an extra set with it), and though they bend, they haven't ever made me nervous. I've got pics of mine somewhere on here...

    I agree on Comp-tac

    I suggest going on youtube and looking at comparison videos of the hybrid holsters...you will definitely see quality differences. Also, Crossbread metal clips can stretchout and become non-functional.... Comp-tac blows them all away

    For being so religious, I am surprised inbread holsters ripped off such innovators in Texas like Tucker Leather and Comp-tac by copying their designs...
