I was looking at a blade-tech paddle holster for a USPc for certain occasions when I need something that can be easily removed and put back on. I have heard that most paddle holsters do not conceal well as they are bulky and dont hug the body. I have always used leather holsters myself, so I have not experience in this area. Has anyone had any experience with any kydex paddle holsters that will conceal reasonably well?

No good news here either; I sometimes carry my P228 in a Comp-Tac Set Cant at 11:00. Very convenient but pretty visible if you know what to look for.

Paddles are comfy but their basic design makes them a little less concealable normal belt holsters IMHO. Get a simple, thin design and work with it, I guess.

Bob Mernickle also makes a really comfy paddle which I've worn with an XD and found to be quite comfy but like all paddles not anything I can wear with "jeans n T shirt".

I too have never found any paddle that holds the gun quite as close to your body as a OWB "pancake" or IWB. Most of them also hold the gun vertically (no tilt) or nearly so, too. A butt-forward cant works far better for me. You may have to trade off a bit of concealability or wear larger/looser shirts or other cover garments.
