It clips onto my pants and when I go to pull it out, it comes out no problem and the holster doesn't unclip. Not to mention the angle it would have to be pulled from isn't a naturally occuring position that you'd encounter if you bend over, walk, sit, jump, etc.

When I carry my XDm 40 4.5 IWB, it's in an MTAC, it is a great holster, very comfortable, very well built, keeps my pistol exactly where I want it all the time and draws very well. You'll hear identical praise for the Crossbreeds, too. Set a few of the competitors' similar designs next to either of these, and you'll easily see some differences in quality and design. IMHO, you get what you pay for, and a quality holster will last for years and years. There are definitely a lot of choices out there, and each has their advantages and disadvantages. A well built holster that fits you and your needs will make a big difference in your comfort, accessibility and reliability for the draw, and ultimately whether you carry your weapon in it and on your person at all.

As others have said, you don't really need to worry about a thumb-break for an IWB, if you get a well built one, the tension will be more than adequate to keep your gun secured (gymnastics and break dancing aside ).

Like most of us, I've also got a few cheap range holsters that do the job just fine. When you consider what one spends on a firearm, possible accessories and modifications, on ammunition and training to get proficient, and that we may one day stake our life and the lives of our loved ones on that firearm and our ability to access it immediately and efficiently . . . . I've never understood the reasoning behind pinching pennies on a CC holster.

My $.02, YMMV.

Houseboat how does the leather hold up when you remove your weapon. Does it collapse?
