I opted for the High Noon Holster's Public Secret since I wanted the slide guard. It gets hot down here in FL and would hate to sweat the slide too much. Anyway I am happy with the quality of the holster. The price was a little much thou but since it only took 5 days to receive it that made up for it a little. Perfect fit for my XDM 40 Compact since it's a molded holster.
