I made my trip around the custom world over the years and some time ago I finally settled on the Tucker Gunleather Cover-Up Plus as my IWB holster of choice for all of my carry guns. Why? Most IWB holsters are adjustable for either cant or height, but not both…or not adjustable at all.
The Tucker Cover-Up line of holsters were one of the few IWB holsters that I could find that were adjustable for both cant and ride height. Let’s face it, humans come in as many shapes and sizes as there are people. The more adjustment an IWB holster offers, the better the chance of finding that perfect, comfortable fit for day-long carry.
The Cover-Up line is made of leather. I don’t know about you, but I find Kydex rubbing up against my skin all day long to be very uncomfortable; especially in hot and humid South Florida where I call home. I would much rather have leather, which, after all, is actually skin, rubbing against my hip and buttock all day instead of plastic.
Kydex is also rougher on gun finishes than leather as well.
I don’t mind being rough on the finish of a utilitarian pistol like a GLOCK, but I want to keep the finishes on my Wilson Combat and Dan Wesson carry guns looking as nice as possible; leather is the only way to do that.
