Haven't tried the holsters. They don't have much support for optics and lights.

Alien Gear Cloak Mod Drop Leg Holster https://aliengearholsters.com/cloak-mod-drop-leg-holster.html.html
I can't imagine what application I'd use a drop leg holster for a little gun like a Ruger Max 9.
Both are in the box of crappy holsters that I will never use again.
I have one. It is the 3.0 version You can free exchange the kydex shells for another gun if you want.
For $15 plus shipping it's yours if you want it. You will need to send the shell to them for whatever gun you want.
PM me if you want.
The holster has held up well for about 3 years now and it was good enough to convince a friend who was holster shopping for his M&P to also go with Alien gear. I have no complaints about it after the initial needed modification to fit my gun. It holds the gun securely (for a no positive retention IWB) and sits comfortably. If I have to buy a holster and AG is selling one that fits my needs I may buy from them again.
I have been using one of these holsters for my Sig P938 for a few years now. They are nice holsters.
My problem is that most Alien Gear and Cross Breed holsters are meant to wear at the 4 O'clock position which just doesn't work for me. I bought a Cross Breed IWB holster to fit my Taurus 85 and was very disappointed with it. The shell was riveted to the leather backer instead of using rubber washers and Chicago screws. Any kind of bend in the leather backer and I can't draw the revolver out of the holster. There is zero adjustability in teh Cross Breed holster I have.
Mine is riveted like you mention, but in all the years I haven't had any of those issues with mine. Mine is for a G26 and I wonder if the revolver application is different. The only bending mine does is on the wings to conform to my body.
OP, regarding the AG brand, I would say that I have seen more negative comments online for that brand, but I have no personal experience with them. That probably sways my opinion a little, but if that's the one you like I would try it out for the 30 days and evaluate it yourself. Although, a lot of the negativity seems to come from premature wear over time, not initial quality when it arrives.
Sweet! Have a nice trip, enjoy yourself, and stay safe!
My (non-clip) IWB Remora is perfect, and every handgun's grip touches my hip with far less protrusion into a shirt than the closest position on that rigid holster I had.. Want to change the gun's angle/"cant" (whatever....) on your hip etc? Simply move it a bit and it stays where you leave it.
Maybe I should have tried an "Alien Gear" holster, but this This link depicts my only regular "alien gear":
