    Hopefully I didn't overlook this somewhere. Looking for opinions on whether to go with the Crossbreed Supertuck or the Harwell Protuck for the XDs. Looking to buy now and just wondered what everyone thought.

    I'll throw another in the mix... How about the Comp-tac Minotaur MTAC? I think mine is great! but never tried a supertuck or protuck.. I have heard nothing but good stuff about supertucks...

    Retention on the MTAC? Adjustable to whatever you want. Hybrid leather/kydex. Fantastic quality.

    Crossbreed for sure, but I'd recommend the MiniTuck over the SuperTuck for an XDs.

    I ordered a crossbreed a couple of weeks ago. I hope to see it soon but with the current frenzy might be waiting for a couple more months.

    5'10" 210 they suggested the super tuck is the mini tuck that much better. Is it worth the extra 15$ for the horse hide(sweat alot with my job)

    Wow that's crazy! They must be backed up bad... I just ordered a kydex body for my MTAC to switch it from my fullsized Px4 to the XDs and it took them 4 days (production time) then it was in my P.O. Box 3 days later. And as always, they sent Smarties! the candy! Actually they always send smarties... it's a neat form of customer appreciation...

    My belt is a Crossbreed BTW, it is excellent quality!!! I replaced the original buckle with a 100% Titanium buckle due to my Nickel allergy... It looks SHARP!

    So of the two in question i'll +1 for CB!!

    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

    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.
