Here are some of my pocket holsters for the XDS. I make both a front and back pocket holster. Back Pocket has a removable panel so that the holster can be used front pocket with out the panel if desired. I also have a link to a YouTube video showing my back pocket and how it is built and functions.

I also agree with Houseboat. It takes a larger pocket to pocket carry the XDS. I can and have done it with baggy cargo shorts or pants in the front pock. I have never tried it back pocket, because lots of back pockets are just not big (tall) enough. My cheap jeans from Sam's Club will not work, as the pocket is too tight. I have had several customers tell me they have pockets big enough to back pocket carry, more power to them! I might point out that with cooler weather the front or back pocket can work well in a coat pocket. My preferred method is IWB.

I pocket carry mine in a Desantis Nemisis with no problems. Cargos and pleated front pants work equally well.

Those Bear Creek holsters are good-lookin'. What is the approximate wait time after placing an order?

Pocket carrying mine right now in a cheap Blackhawk size 4 pocket holster. Can carry it fine in cargo shorts and in any jeans that I wear for motorsickle riding - guess those particular jeans stretch and loosen good enough where they need to, because they're definitely not baggy but not tight, either. I'll definitely be looking at those Bear Creeks.

Thanks. My wait time is running about 4 weeks at this point.

I pocket carry with an Uncle Mike's #4. Cheap and works well for me. I am not a small person so some of my dress pants and my Duluth Trading jeans have large pockets and will conceal all of the XDs. I just have to wear suspenders with some pants to help carry the extra weight.

I think that despite it's small size, it is still too big to carry in my pocket. Tried a few holsters and getting it out of my pocket, regardless the size, is just too cumbersome. Just my 2 cents

I carry my XDs daily on my pocket all the time. I use a Desantis holster in khakis. I agree that pleats hide the gun better. As long as the pocket is deep enough, you'll be fine. The XDs is barely longer than a Beretta Nano or Kahr CM9.

Carhartt pants and back pocket works fine for me.
