Holster Review: RB Holsters 5" 1911 IWB Holster




Thought I'd share a little bit of a product review on here for anyone looking for a good IWB Holster. I have been searching for one for quite some time and I thought I had my mind set on a Crossbreed Supertuck holster for my 5" SIG 1911 Traditional. I got to searching around Ebay maybe trying to find a slightly used one or one a bit cheaper than what the manufacturer wants for a new one.

Well I stumbled into an ad for a IWB Holster put together just like the Crossbreed. I was amazed to find it was made with Horsehide and the seller only wanted $37.99 plus shipping for it. Crossbreeds seem to go for $60 or so for a cowhide model, and then they charge you $15 if you want horsehide. Well I ordered it last Friday and just got it on Tuesday. I am thoroughly impressed with the product. Fit and finish is great, and despite it still needing broken in I found it to be pretty comfortable right out of the box. The kydex holster attached to the horsehide also fits my 1911 perfectly without any need for modification.

I'd easily buy another holster from this seller. You can't beat this price on a good quality horsehide IWB Holster. Shipping was fast, and the product is more than worth the asking price.

The seller for anyone who would like the know is RBHolsters on Ebay and they also have a facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/RbHolsters?fref=ts

Looks good. Is the Kydex lined or unlined? I'd imagine unlined for that price. Now that you've had it for a while, how does it ride? Any pics of it on your belt with shirt tucked would be appreciated.

I messaged them on Facebook to inquire whether they offer to line the Kydex to reduce finish wear and they said "not at this time." Shibby, what kind of finish do you have on your pistol that you carry in the RB Holster? How has the Kydex been treating it?

While I normally don't resurrect old threads I know someone from another board that has one for sale. I think i'll buy it after seeing this.
