Today’s EDC includes a GLOCK 19 in an Alien Gear Modular Holster. The GLOCK 19 is nothing short of a classic – who among us doesn’t own at least one? – and the hybrid holster, well, that bears discussing.
Food for thought: when comparing the different holster material options such as leather, Kydex, and hybrids, I’ve found the some hybrids tend to have failure points and issues long before the others. Malformations and cracks have been an issue as has complete separation of the Kydex or metal holster from the leather back.
This isn’t a negative commentary on a specific brand, it’s just a commentary on materials based on experience. Does that mean your hybrid will definitely become either unusable or unwise to use? No, but it’s a definite possibility depending on what you buy, especially if you do carry on a daily basis. The last thing you want is a failure at the wrong moment, right?
Okay, guys. Thoughts? I’m sure you have them.
