What does the gang think of these holsters?

I've been thinking of AIWB carry (really more of a crossdraw at 10:00 to 10:30, or in front of my right hip at 2:00-2:30), as I feel my gun will be more accessible in a greater variety of situations than the 4:00 position I use now. It is fine while standing or walking, but sitting or driving or wearing heavier winter clothing is less so. This will be for a Glock 19.

Garrett's standard IWB: http://www.giholsters.com/silent-thunder-iwb-sale-on-olive-drab-kydex-20-off/

These will use clips, not a J-hook.

I also want a rig for my CZ75D Compact, but there are a lot fewer available for this gun.

Appendix carry: try JM Custom AIWB holster with molded wedge and optional offset. The wedge makes it more comfortable. The "extra tuck" places a bit more space between the gun and belt, tilting the muzzle forward. Go read up on The Keeper for some more details on how the wedge and tuck affect things.

He lists both the CZ75 Compact and G19.

Review of The Keeper:

I would not try to order The Keeper. I think he's not making them any more and the soft foam wedge degrades over time. The molded kydex wedge on the JM Custom holster will never degrade.

I like the high ride option in the link above. One problem I've encountered experimenting with this carry is that the muzzle pokes and prods at me.

How about this one? Dale Fricke "Joab": http://dalefrickeholsters.com/product/joab-appendix-carry/ I like the clip design - there is no way that is coming off my belt.

I doubt you will find a better holster than the silent thunder from Garrett. My only suggestion would be to talk to Garrett before buying and ask their advice on which mounting option to choose. Hey have many options. I just changed my My silent thunder IWB from the std clip to the slim clip. I've only had the new clip for a day but it looks to be solid. I think it will be easier to put on and take off.
