    AHHH I sound like an old wooden ship squeaking every time i make a step. What gives?

    How have you guys solved it? Is it more of a horsehide issue?

    I oiled the leather, but really, after a while it just went away. I have the cowhide one, so I don't know about the horsehide

    It goes away. My cow hide was silent. Last week I got a horsehide one, and it squeaks. I put felt furniture tabs on the backside of the metal belt-clips to quiet it. Eventually I'll take those off and let it squeak away 'til it dies down.

    I had that same issue. DROVE ME NUTS! I called Crossbreed and they suggested the same thing ksbsnowowl mentioned above (to place some felt behind the metal clips). I did not have any felt available, but I did have some velcro strips with sticky backs so I used that. Just stuck the soft side of the velcro behind the metal and tabs and VIOLA! The velcro has been there for over a year and 100% squeak free!! I hope that helps you.

    Last sunday I was at church and leaned over to pick up the weekly pamphlet that I dropped, and my ST squeaked really loud. I have been using saddle soap which seems to work for a couple of days, but got sick of having to do that all the time so I got some silencer material from sportsmans warehouse and put it on the back of the entire clip. Its real thin stuff and I wore my holster yesterday and its dead silent. Its gonna stay there forever because the squeaking drove me nuts.

    I looked for it on the sportsmans warehouse website and couldnt find it. I even googled it and couldnt find it. It is made by vista and its just called silencing material. If you live by a sportsmans warehouse just go into the archery section and you'll see it. I used to use similar material with my archery stuff but this stuff is super thin and seems like it would last a lot longer. Good luck.

    your's must be new?
    If you get a good conditioner to use on it, and wear it frequently so that you break it in, it should stop making so much noise.

    I have had mine for a good 4 months now and been wearing it just about every day and it still squeaked really bad before i put the silencing material on the back of the clips. Maybe some of the leather is a little different.

    I received mine two days ago and have been wearing it ever since. My wife makes fun of me for squeaking everywhere I walk. The noise is very noticeable. So far I have only worn it in the house. Today I tried putting the felt furniture pads behind the belt clasps. It is less noisy now, but still very noticeable. Cut down about half the noise. Not sure yet if this is going to work for me.

    Before I saw this post, I decided that the problem was from the back of the j clips rubbing on the leather (mine's horsehide), so, I took a shop rag and cut two small strips to insert between the clip and the leather (I haven't been wearing a tucked shirt, so the leather and the clips make direct contact). Squeaking solved.

    Then I saw this post, and put some of the fuzzy side of stick on velcro on the back of the tabs--squeaking back. Put the rag strips back in, squeaking solved. Not sure why the velcro didn't do the trick, but the rag sure does.
