I've got a new Kimber on the way and I'm looking for a holster to carry it in.
I'm looking at the Blackhawk IWB Holster.
Does anyone have any experience with this holster? One review I read said that the belt loop was adjusted by velcro, which I don't like the sound of very much just because it can wear out so quickly.
So what do you think?
If you have suggestions for another leather iwb holster for a Kimber Pro Carry with a high back to keep the safety of a 1911 off your skin that is readily available (unlike Milt Sparks Summer Special Series), please make suggestions.

I like the Galco Summer Comfort. My Tactical Custom II has ambi-safeties, and I've never felt it rub me. Always wear a t-shirt though.

Did you skip a link somewhere? It's not clear what holster you are referring to.

The Summer Special II is usually available from Brownells with no waiting.

High Noon has the Down Under which is similar to the Summer Special II.

5 Shot Leather also has one similar and maybe available in stock at Heirloom Precision.

I have no idea what holster you're looking at, but I like my CrossBreed SuperTuck deluxe.

Yes I did. My phone doesn't have copy and paste so I just gave the name of the holster until later today when I can properly amend my initial post.
