    Vedder. Or Vedder. Or Vedder. Light Tuck that is.

    I have the Vedder LightTuck for a S&W Shield .45. It has a metal clip and is tuckable. I also have their tuckable mag pouches for both the Shield mags and for 1911 mags. They are good products, and work as advertised.

    I also have several Concealment Express holsters for various guns, including a G-26, the Shield, and even a 1911 Commander. They have plastic clips, and mine are not tuckable. They also work as advertised. (Concealment Express now offers a tuckable, but with a narrower clip. I haven't tried it.)

    The Veddar has the steel clip that I assume will never break, and is tuckable. The Concealment Express plastic clip may eventually break, but I bought a spare and it is easy to replace (or adjust). The edges of the Vedder clip seem sharper than the plastic clip on the Concealment Express, and seem to rub on my clothes more. The tuckable feature of the Vedder is more of a production to get on, as might be expected with any tuckable, and seems slower to get on or off even when not tucking. (I have a Comp-Tac tuckable with two attachment clips for the Commander. It is also slower to get on.)

    If I wanted to tuck, or to be able to tuck, I'd buy the Vedder with the steel clip or the Concealment Express with the tuckable clip. If I didn't plan on tucking I'd buy the Concealment Express without the tuckable feature, for easy on & off, for a wider and more stable clip, and for the lower price.

    I am probably debating the Vedder and Concealment Express.

    The next IWB I'll buy will be the Black Arch single clip. The backing they put behind their hybrids looks comfortable. Adjustable height and cant and they also have a good selection of clips. https://www.blackarchholsters.com/co...-clip-protos-m

    Kydex IWB are a little too unforgiving for my tastes. Leather backed would probably be okay, but the thought of hard plastic digging into my side...

    I've never been a fan of single clip holsters due to the added pressure point given one clip.

    Been using Alien Gear for yrs and love them; carry all day and never know it's there.

    I don't want or need a drawer full of holsters.

    Your mileage may vary.
