    I've been mostly IWB with XDs, but when go OWB its been in this Galco Concealable that I had for XD9 - fits great, just a bit long below the muzzle. A great holster for XD because pulls in tight, and does same for XDs - hardly shows, even with a Tshirt. Maybe Galco will come out with similar for XDs, that would be excellent - something to watch for if you are not in a hurry. When I don't care at all if prints, like walking around neighborhood, I've been using the paddle that came with XDs - actually does a pretty decent job.

    Check out R Grizzle Leather. The High Country is what I have on order and it will be the third Grizzle holster I will own. Great work and quality as well as a real gentleman who is easy to work with if you want some changes.

    Nates Custom Holsters I love mine and it rides HIGH AND TIGHT
    at 5 o'clock the XDS just loves it. Wore it all day several times
    when I could get away with it (T shirt Untucked) even on the
    motorcycle was comfy.

    Here is a holster I purchased off E-Bay from Alexander's. He goes by shootist 274. I have a Galco that is similar for a Glock but this guy has added tensioning screws rather than rivets. This holds the XD very solid and tight against the body. Less than $45.00 and free shipping.

    I ordered a kydex OWB from phlster.com or PhillyEDC on youtube. Great quality stuff I plan on running a review when I get it in along with my Hidden Hybrid Holsters IWB.

    If you hurry go to Crossbreed Seconds. They are returned holsters or blems. I ordered a Super Tuck Shorty and a Snap Slide. You must pay with cash. Got mine in ten days. Both holsters looked brand new. Look at the Crossbreed website then go to CrossbreedSeconds.com You will not be disappointed.

    How do you like the snap slide ? I have a mini tuck but wanted a OWB for winter. How close does it ride to your body ? Does it ride like a pancake holster would ?

    The Snap Slide worn on my 8 o'clock fits like a glove. I do not have a paddle holster to compare it.
