Looking for a owb holster to take my glock hunting and hiking with me. I plan on getting a .357 eventually but for now 180 grain hydra shock is going to have to do. Any suggestions?

We carry Glocks while riding quads/outdoors and use Serpa BlackHawk holsters (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/251450/blackhawk-cqc-serpa-holster-right-hand-glock-17-22-31-polymer-black) with strong nylon/leather belts with heavy buckles (http://www.midwayusa.com/find?userSearchQuery=nylon+belt+gun) (not dress belt). I also use coiled lanyard (http://www.midwayusa.com/find?userSearchQuery=coiled+lanyard). I bought the holster for G23 and it will work with G22/G27 also.

Before the BlackHawk holster, I used Fobus Paddle (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/446980/fobus-compact-paddle-holster-right-hand-glock-17-19-22-23-26-27-31-32-33-34-35-polymer-black) and Roto Paddle holsters (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/113254/fobus-roto-paddle-holster-right-hand-glock-17-19-22-23-31-32-34-35-polymer-black) with lanyards.

The plastic Glock sport holsters are pretty good. They have good retention and they're cheap enough that you can buy two or three and set them up for different-sized belts. (You clip a crosspiece out of the belt hole to adjust them.)

Glock factory holster don't provide retention. You need positive retention for outdoors/offroad carry in case you have to run/jump/stumble/fall or get upside down (believe me, it can/will happen). You can use full flap retention holsters but they don't provide quick access/draw.

Not as much as a strap or flap, no, but I have done a head-first forward roll while wearing a Glock 26 in one of those holsters, and it didn't come out. They have a bump that engages the inside of the trigger guard.

OK.

Still recommend the lanyard.

I have Blade-Tech and Blackhawk Serpa, for the Glock I prefer the Blade-Tech.
Retention is passive, no thumbsnaps or tigger boogies, gun is held by friction and you can tighten the screws to the point, short of getting bucked off a horse and rolling down a mountain, that pistol isn't coming out of the holster unless you draw it.

Look into crown holsters, very good quality and retention.

+1 ... +many, actually I have many blade-tech OWB & IWB holsters. For my G4G19 I have the IWB Nano & OWB Eclipse.

Is this true of all of their holsters or one specific model?
I ask because I've been looking for a good OWB holster for open carry while riding the motorcycle, and I'd like to avoid covering up the gun with a flap or thumb strap if possible.
