    I am thinking of getting an all Kydex IWB holster. I am currently in a Tommy THEIS leather/Kydex holster. Absolutely fantastic holster but during the summer months I sweat too much for it. It is very comfortable and for a leather/Kydex I highly recommend it but too noisy with the squeaking and squawking. I have put lots of baby powder on it and that will stop the noise for a bit but not permanently. When it is not hot out and I am not sweating it quiets right down so I want to be prepared for next summer. What are your thoughts on the all Kydex. Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    Hands down the leather is going to be more comfortable.

    I have a Comp-Tac leather/kydex that I hardly notice is there. I wanted a light mounted holster for my M&Pc so I ordered a Raven Concealment holster. Hands down this is a great holster, but you know it is there. This is not to say it is uncomfortable but it is no where near as nice as the leather.

    I went with horsehide because of the amount of moisture I would put it through. Would not even think about an all Kydex holster if I did not have too. I can guarantee sweat will be pouring off any holster I try. At least with all Kydex I can dry it off. Moisture collects on any part of the gun that touches my skin too.

    Thanks for all the thoughts so far. At least I am in no hurry as the rain has started and cool weather is here. Hoping to have a holster ready for next year's warm weather.

    Update: I ordered one from PJholster@gmail.com. He has an ad for his holsters on Glocktalk.

    Paul said I should have it sometime next week.
    Thanks for all the holster suggestions. If my pockets were deeper I would like to try some of the holsters mentioned but my Wife is the one with all the money. Haha
