    I'm hoping that someone can help me out.

    I have a Tucker Easy Reach IWB Kydex holster (Springfield XD 9mm SC). It is a great holster and I really like it. I have one problem though.

    No matter how tight my belt is, the smooth kydex slides and drags my belt down with it. I tried Mole Foam, a Compression bandage that sticks to its self and rubber bands to get some grip between the holster and my shirt or boxers.

    It still slides down. So far the best option I've tried is the compression bandages. It isn't sticky, but does grip my shirt and helps, but not enough.

    Thanks!:confused:

    Try a belt made to hold up a gun. You won't believe the difference a proper gunbelt can make until you try one.

    Here is a good (and not too expensive) example...5.11 Leather Concealment Belt

    I am wondering about the number and placement of your belt loops. Cheaper jeans and cargo pants have only five - sometimes unevenly spaced - while my Carhartt jeans/cargo pants have seven. The pants with more loops do support the gun better with less sagging.
