Active Pro, Kangaroo Carry, or Deep Conceal Ultra Carry Holster?

I'm looking for a shoulder holster to wear under a shirt for my Kahr PM9 and a couple of spare magazines. The following are quite similar to each other (white cloth, washable, fit multiple guns, made to wear under a shirt, about $30-$40, etc.). I would appreciate any experiences and recommendations regarding these or other similar holsters.

(1) Active Pro DeepConcealment. This one has two shoulder straps and an elastic "belly band" style belt around the body. This looks like it would support the weight well, and keep it tight against the body. However, the elastic might also be uncomfortable in hot weather. It must be hand washed. It is available on the Kahr website, which I take as a good sign.

(2) Kangaroo Carry Sky Marshal model. This is made of cotton cloth (not elastic), so it might be more comfortable (but maybe a little less secure). It is also machine washable. It gets a very favorable review on Gun Blast.com.

(3) Deep Conceal Ultra Carry Air Marshal model. This looks very similar to #2 above, and might even be the same thing under a different name. I can't tell if the band is cloth or elastic. I think the Air Marshal is the only one for a smaller pistol that has magazine pouches.

These all come with what appear to be optional velcro straps to secure the gun in its pouch. I can't tell if any have a thumb break - which would seem a lot quicker than having to yank a velcro strap loose from the front of the holster before drawing the pistol.

Any thoughts or experience with these? Any other similar holsters I should be looking at? (I'm not looking for recommendations to use belt, ankle, and other styles of holsters.)

Thanks

Doug

Can't speak for the other two, but I have the Kangaroo Carry...works great, and now they have a velcro strap on even the subcompact version...so it's plenty secure.
