I'd take the comp-tac over the cb. It has much better clips that prevent the holster from lifting during draw.

You must be doing something wrong. I use one "J" clip and one "Velcro" clip with my rig and combine it with either a CB or WT belt. I've never had my CBST lift when I draw.

I have the Harwell Pro tuck and I love it. It's very comfortable and within minuets I forget I'm wearing it. The turn around was great, I had it in my hands within 5 days of ordering.

Can't speak for the supertuck, but I have a mini-tuck for my xds. I personally think the size of the supertuck is over kill for the xds. In my opinion, the mini-tuck is perfect in size...keep in mind that the mini has a "combat" style cut so you might consider an undershirt to protect your love handles from those all terrain grips. However, I'm not a huge fan of the crosses stamped in the clips of crossbreed's products...not knocking religion...I just prefer to blend in with the sheep as much as possible.

I also can't speak for the pro tuck from harwell, but I do have their clip-n-go for my lil beastie. I got this for the days when I'm having to put on and take off my gun frequently...one clip is much easier than two. If you do opt for harwell, get the natural leather. I chose the black leather, and since the backside is also dyed, its much stiffer and slicker...therefore, less comfortable. Doesn't matter w/ an undershirt though. However, you can't beat harwell's price and speed of delivery.

Two things about the clip-n-go: I did trim about a quarter inch of leather off the top left corner...this is so my thumb could get a full grip on the gun when drawing, no biggie. Second, due to the clip being placed directly on the side, it makes the overall holster a little thicker. As a result, I'm gonna try crossbreed's quick-clip model...the clip is offset, making a thinner profile. Plus, there's no cross on the clip Can't hurt to try, just money. Lol

Still sendin' smarties, huh?

Thx for all the advice. Ordered the horsehide Super Tuck with the combat cut, and one of there belts. They offered a LEO discount which was cool. Now we just wait six weeks and see of it was a good choice for $150

Looks like I am jumping a little late, because you just made your purchase, but...

I have had the Crossbreed Minituck and the Harwell Protuck, both for the XDS. The Crossbreed wins for me.

I couldn't draw the XDS from the Harwell. I couldn't get it out of the holster. They sent me a replacement free and fast, but I had the same problem with it. They gave me a full refund with no problems at all.

I purchased a Crossbreed as well, and the draw was smooth. It would not fall out, but it came out much easier than the the Harwell. I had the Horsehide version and it was much nicer as well.

Harwell is a great company and many people here like them, but for me the Crossbreed was better.
