    Hello everyone !

    Recently picked up a glock 26 4th as my daily concealed carry gun. I snagged a crossbreed iwb holster (super tuck model). It's beautiful and super comfy, but the gun prints a bit too much for my liking with it.

    I'm looking for recommendations on hip or appendix carry iwb holsters if anyone has had any great experiences with a specific brand, there seems to be a never ending list of manufactures of holsters.

    Aiwb i run either the haley incog by gcode or a jm custom kydex. I prefer the jm but the incog allows me to tuxk at work.

    I second the INCOG. I'll also use a Veil Solutions Ghost from time to time, mainly in the summer.

    I use a simple Galco Stow-n-Go for all my pistols when I carry IWB.

    Alien gear 3.0 holsters are super comfy and require no break in time.

    High Noon holsters Turning Point hybrid is my preferred iwb holster. Tuckable with a single clip that is very strong and one of the more discreet looking clips. They have nearly any kind of holster you could want.

    The P226 kydex is leather line on the inside. My P225 A1 fits it perfectly as well.

    Raven ACR working well for me... depends on your build as well.
    Some of the holsters have a little claw-thingy that actually presses the grip side of your firearm into your body, but I'm not sure how comfy it is.

    There's a bajillion options out there. My favorites for the G19 are:

    1- Comp-Tac MTAC
    2- Alien Gear 3.0

    I wear them at around 3:30. I don't carry AIWB.

    What belt are you using? A Glock 26 with a holster like that should conceal great(unless you're going skin tight shirts ;-) ).

    The belt sounds like he culprit to me. I would highly reccomend a Galco leather belt. It's what I carry every day. With the same token if I put my holster on a cheap-Walmart belt it prints like a rig.

    I would check your belt first before trying to switch up your holsters.

    I second nosuchagency's reply. Did you try to adjust the clips to change the ride height and cant? The grip on the G26 isn't that long, it should conceal well.

    op leaving clips at default position from factory is my guess.

    Concealment Express. Very thin profile Kydex and the $ is right.;)

    G-Code INCOG, AIWB carry.
    [​IMG]

    This setup works quite well for me.

    But why does it work so well?
    I dress to the gun.
    I have the correct body type for appendix carry.
    I have a proper gun belt.
    I select the holster and carry style before I buy the pistol.
    Did I mention that I dress to the gun?

    I recommend INCOG by G-Code because it hides a Glock 19 very well, provides secure retention while being very accessible. It is as comfortable as a AIWB holster can be for a 4" barreled gun.

    I used to carry a Desantis Intruder IWB that was very similar to the Crossbreed design. It worked well. Recently, I started trying a Q-Series Stealth minimalist IWB/trigger guard Holster. It works although it's not comfortable (just tolerable).

    Carried a Springfield XD9 Subcompact for many years in a Comp-Tac MTAC holster. It's a hybrid as in leather backing with kydex shell. Heart holster and very comfortable. Really distributed the weight of the firearm out wide with the belt clips.
