Picked up a DeSantis 106/85 IWB holster for my 1911 (Taurus PT1911 to be exact) and I've had it a few days and worn it so thought I would drop a review. The holster seems to be very heavy duty in construction, the leather is thick and stitches seem strong. This holster has the ability to be worn so that you can still tuck the shirt in, a quality I have not used but could prove useful in the future. The holster also has adjustable cant should you want to use it as a small of the back or cross draw style. It accomplishes the variable cant by loosening/tightening two hex style bolts on the kydex arm (the hex wrench is included). One of the strongest points of the holster is the leather reinforced mouth which holds the holster open for insertion of the firearm. I've been wearing the holster a week and am very satisfied. I'll detail the actual holster below.

Make: DeSantis
Model: 106 fit 85 for 1911 govt
Material: Suede body with heavy grain leather reinforced mouth. Kydex arm for attachment to belt/pant, and heavy steel clip with lip to secure under the belt.
Color: Tan body, brown leather upper, black kydex arm.
Price: 23.99
Purchased from: Midway USA
