I am looking for a comfortable IWB holster for the S&W 340. I intend to use it in the appendix position. Any comments on kydex vs. leather would be appreciated. Thanks for your help !

If it were a choice between kydex and leather, I would go with leather, mainly for aesthetics, but also because it seems much more supple than kydex.
Consider the Uncle Mike's IWB neoprene holsters. They are comfortable, easy drawing, and can be worn cross-draw. It does take a little longer to reholster, but that is not the stage where speed is of the essence....

DeSantis has one called Sof-Tuck for the J frame. I think I paid like $25 for mine and I appendix carry. Nothing fancy, but it works.
Lobo Leather has been very good to me. I have an IWB for my M19 snub and am awaiting one for my 442. He also has a single clip IWB model that would be ideal (IMO) for appendix carry. Excellent quality, prices and service.

My favorite holster for my 340sc, by far, is a tuckable IWB made by Ryan Grizzle. I can have it on all day long and forget it's even there!
