If you are still looking for the right holster, following is a list of our best leather IWB holsters. Many of us spend a lot of time picking the “right” gun, only to do a sloppy job choosing a comfortable holster.
Why should I choose a leather inside the waistband (IWB) holster?
This is definitely my own preference, but most of my friends would agree that a leather holster which you carry IWB is not just the most comfortable, but also the most effective. Effective here just means that the holster is great to conceal your gun, because no parts of the gun are shown.
What are the different types of IWB leather holsters?
Most holsters are made in a way that easily attaches to your belt or pants. Usually, the holster is attached by either a clip or by loops that your belt fits through.
Here are some examples before we go into the top list.
