    Anyone pocket carry the XDs in the front pocket of cargo pants? Is that doable? I can't find one locally to test it out.

    Also, is there pocket carry holster out there? Thanks!

    I would suggest this pocket holster.
    I use one for my LCP.

    I pocket carry. Alabama Holster Company makes nice holsters if you don't mind waiting a while.

    I use a Blackhawk size 4 to carry mine in my front pocket. Very cheap and doable.

    Pocket carry is possible. I have a Desantis, but I'm not sure what size it is. Was leftover from my PF9

    The Galco PRO286 also works for the XD-S.
    Some people can't pocket carry a PF-9, LC9, or M&P Shield, so whether YOU could pocket carry it depends on if you could successfully pocket these.

    One of my LGD's said that he checked to see if he could pocket carry one of these and that he can as long as he wears something fairly baggy. That being said, it seems like it would be very uncomfortable in most of my jeans, which is what I wear the most. Maybe cargo's, khakis, or dress pants since they tend to be looser fitting.

    I can pocket carry my LC9 in the front pocket of cargo pants or shorts fairly easy. Regular cheap jeans--nope! XDS is same slide thickness as the LC9 and about .25 inch longer. But, I still prefer IWB carry for both the XDS and LC9.

    I carry mine in front pocket of cargo pants with a Uncle Mike's size 3. Works great.
