I don't have time to watch the video right now, but the first Kydex holster I remember seeing was the "Snick".

These were sold for a very short time and at one point were a favorite of combat pistol match shooters.
It was about the most minimalist holster around.

Bill Rogers mentioned the Snick.

Mike Benedict has a Snick, it was cool.

Chuck Taylor mentioned the Snick and having his Commander fell out of one.

I know he stopped some time ago, but your post caused me to head to Talon Tactical ( https://www.talontactical.com ) and it shows a couple of holster models listed.
