So the Hybrid Holster class has been popular for several years now. Yet, until now, I have never tried one out. I suppose it's primarily because I like to dress up my pistols in high quality custom leather. Just never been a fan of the look and feel of kydex. However, decided to give the Cleveland Holster a try since Bobby was good enough to mold them for the Caracal pistols... Holster and mag holder arrived today and is smartly packaged as shown: While I still feel the hybrid holsters are somewhat of an eyesore, the quality and feel of the materials in this Cleveland holster is excellent. They included some locktite in the package to allow you to properly tighten the screws without having to run down to the gun store. Very nice touch! One thing that I noticed about the Cleveland holster in comparison to other hybrids, is the size of the leather backing. As you can see, the pistol handle is also backed by leather. Not sure what I think about this design yet. On the one hand I can see how it might be more comfortable for carry, but on the other hand, find it a little harder to grasp the stock of the pistol during the draw. Give me a few days to wear it awhile before I pass judgment. Maybe Bobby can chime in as to why he leaned towards this design concept. The kydex mold is solid and I like that it fits my C well, and covers and protects the right side mag release so I don't have to worry about a loose mag. I also picked up an extra mag holster which is built of the same high quality - unfortunately, it does not fit the Caracal mags. :? I'm sure it's an easy fix though and I will check in with Cleveland's to see what they suggest. Nothing more to report until I wear the holster around for awhile. I like the fact that there are several cant options (something the other Hybrid Holsters typically don't provide) and will be trying a few different positions out to see what I like best. More in a week or so!
