Crossbread verses Kholster IWB holsters

Differences as I observe other than the obvious shape difference:

The backer on the Crossbread is 3/16” thick, the Kholster is just shy of 1/8” thick. Without carrying with both I’ll never be able to make a definitive determination on how that affects its use but when I saw the Crossbread at the club recently, I thought the backer was a bit thick (unnecessarily thick) on the Crossbread and seeing the Kholster I can imagine a quicker break-in and more moldable as it is worn? I don’t know but the thickness is defiantly not a quality or strength issue.

Not a biggie but the Kholster gun molded part is held on with one more rivet.

On the Kholster I really like how the leather washers work on the screws holding the belt clips on. They grip the inside of the pants making the holster impossible to remove without manually opening the clips; no "J" clips needed.

I do like more leather behind the gun on the Kholster keeping my the three inch Kimber completely from my body and all but about an inch of the 4 inch gun.

The Kholster is more adjustable though not infinitely as the web site shows but I can’t imagine wanting more adjustment than I have and appearance wise I prefer how it is on the one sent to me. The Kholster has 13 adjustment options per side verses Crossbreads 4 allowing for more cant and much deeper concealment.

I have to say that with the price difference; $80.00 for the Crossbread verses $49.00 for the Kholster (both prices reflecting delivered price), I’m sure glad the owner of Crossbread screwed me over resulting in my finding the Kholster bargain. I had a very difficult time dealing with the owner of Crossbread. They offer a discount for certain people but if you go to the site that fact is hidden. Fortunately I called with questions before I ordered and talked to an employee who answered the question then told me of the discount and exactly how to get it; they told me wrong. I called about not getting my discount, the owner basically said tough I missed out on the discount and he refused to include a >7.00 check with my order so he canceled my order. It's obvious on his web site after you find where the discount is hidden, that he has a lot of trouble with people finding out after the fact that there is even a discount since in a stern statement he says no discounts after ordering; the problem is the hidden discount information. Kholster offers bigger discounts and is open with how to get it so another blessing for me.

If you or anybody you know orders, my discount code/rebate code is 03-3381 you will get a 10% discount off the $49.00 for entering that code when you order (there’s a box to add the code where you order). Click “Order Now” on the home page and you find the order form; towards the bottom of the short order from under Special Instructions you enter your gun model and Rebate Code. This gives you a 10% discount and me a 10% discount on my future orders which I will be ordering again.

Both of these holsters offer comfort to the point of forgetting you have a gun on your side. Kholster's just more adjustable, costs 40% less and delivers in less than half the time.

Both are totally undetectable under a shirt and the shirt can be tucked in and still cant see the gun.

Kholster is having a sale for a limited time starting today, April 1st; $39.00 delivered to your door; that's about 20% off. You cant beat that; I ordered another one.

Get your order in before it's over. Unconditionally guaranteed; if you dont like it, send it back. Seriously if you carry, you want one.
