Bottom Line Up Front - EXCELLENT HOLSTER. Durable, high quality leather that fits your weapon like a a supple glove. The fine boning of the leather itself will securely retain your weapon even without the thumb break, but the rear strap will give you total confidence in its security. The forward cant and high ride makes it ideal for concealment of a medium sized auto pistol slightly to the rear of the three or nine o' clock position on your hip. I use this for my Walther P99 in 9mm and can conceal it with a very light button down shirt of the size I'd normally wear, even without concealing. Highly recommend it.
