    I did make a pocket holster for a guy for the XDs.As with all new products after he had it a couple of weeks I contacted him and he was very pleased with it..To me it would work in large pockets such as cargo pants or a jacket..Tight fitting jeans is out of the question..Sorry as I did not take any photos..If you are interested in something like this give us a call or visit our website..Thank you Larry

    I have a Desantis Suplerfly and haven't found a pocket it will work in. It will fit in a dockers style pocket but it makes the mouth of the pocket gap so much you can see into the pocket. I can get it into the cargo pocket of my 511 superlites and the Velcro will close but it is tight and the Velcro flap doesn't lay flat.

    Try taking the outer flap off of the Superfly. It prints a little, but there's much less bulk.

    Tried to pocket carry mine in a nemisis holster and found in my opinion the XDs is a little big for pocket carry unless you have really big loose pockets.

    I have big pockets. I think I may be leaning towards a BearCreek pocket holster. Does anyone have experience with those? Right now it's in a Blackhawk pocket holster and that is definitely NOT the way to go.

    [​IMG]I added a NcStar Red Laser Sight (Model ACPRLS) to my XDs and pocket carry it in a Sticky Holster (Model MD2) and even with the 7 rd mag it doesn't stick out.

    Can anyone tell me how to add a photo?

    Here are some of my pocket holsters for the XDS. I make both a front and back pocket holster. Back Pocket has a removable panel so that the holster can be used front pocket with out the panel if desired. I also have a link to a YouTube video showing my back pocket and how it is built and functions.

    I also agree with Houseboat. It takes a larger pocket to pocket carry the XDS. I can and have done it with baggy cargo shorts or pants in the front pock. I have never tried it back pocket, because lots of back pockets are just not big (tall) enough. My cheap jeans from Sam's Club will not work, as the pocket is too tight. I have had several customers tell me they have pockets big enough to back pocket carry, more power to them! I might point out that with cooler weather the front or back pocket can work well in a coat pocket. My preferred method is IWB.

    I pocket carry mine in a Desantis Nemisis with no problems. Cargos and pleated front pants work equally well.

    Those Bear Creek holsters are good-lookin'. What is the approximate wait time after placing an order?

    Pocket carrying mine right now in a cheap Blackhawk size 4 pocket holster. Can carry it fine in cargo shorts and in any jeans that I wear for motorsickle riding - guess those particular jeans stretch and loosen good enough where they need to, because they're definitely not baggy but not tight, either. I'll definitely be looking at those Bear Creeks.
