    I'm looking for a IWB single clip holster that will fit the XDs. I know there are a lot of them out there from the shield or 1911 3" that will fit it close, but I'm looking for some insight if anyone has tried them out. Any luck with a IWB clip that will cross to the XDs with acceptable fit? If the fit isn't perfect, explain what is off.

    I've heard the Uncle Mike's #12 is a fairly close fit. Any experience there?

    Hello & welcome w/your first post!

    I have been & still currently using a Uncle Mike's IWB size #12.
    It's nothing fancy but it works. I used CBST for my XDM's & plan to order a White Hat one day. But for the $13 I paid for the UM's I can't complain.

    Here's some pics of the UM's size #12.

    It will fit my XDS & my Shield. Cheap & comfortable, only downside is no cant adjustment.

    Uncle Mike's fits like a glove, but the front sight post snags really bad for me when drawing. Blade Tech is working on a "nano" and told me to check back in 4-8 weeks. I'm sure if they are making them then they'll tell me there is a 5-6 week lead time for delivery. (But I really like my Blade Tech ultimate concealment holster for my XD40SC!) I'm going to use the Old Faithful Holster's crossbreed that I put together until the Blade Tech nano comes out (with occasional Uncle Mike's use for quick trips to the store, etc.)

    Two I own arid love, one is the Harwell Clip and Go is made for the XDs and comes in around $38. The other is the Sticky holster, super easy holster and again a great price. Sticky can be IWB and pocket carry, very versatile.

    Never had my front sight post snag on mine while drawing.

    What size are you using?

    ETA - just noticed that was your first post - so welcome to a great forum.

    I struggled with holster choices since getting my XDs two weeks ago. Have a KingTuk for 1911, never liked it, just could not get used to stuffing a big flat of leather down my pants. I realize that the size spreads the load, but after buying a small gun for CCW I want small holster - don't want to increase the package size more then absolutely needed. Also, that large style is not easy to insert/remove, for example in a car.

    So tried Uncle Mike's size 12 - it fit and carried quite well (especially considering the $12 price). But I did not like the looseness when off belt because I want to just leave carry gun chambered in holster when off belt at night. Less handling presents less opportunity for error - I handle all guns as loaded but hey I am human and our species makes mistakes, so I want that trigger covered always.

    Tried a Galco stow'n'go in many sizes at nearby lgs. Closest is for xd compact - just a hair short but ok with sight fully covered, good other then that. I like it so far, easy on and off belt/pants. Good tightness around frame and slide due to a metal bit inside top edge of holster. I made a very minor cut along edge for a circle where mag release lies - eliminated a hot spot against me, no chance of inadvertent release, and added bonus that I can swap mags while gun/holster off belt (5 round carry, 7 round HD)

    Does anyone know if Harwell can customize his holster slightly to have it ride a little deeper
