The Answer IWB Holster is famous for speed, comfort and concealment. No other IWB holster compares in quality. This is the original Answer IWB holster, made with an especially comfortable dual-layer backing with no exposed hardware. It's tuckable and adjustable for height and cant. (We recommend the Slimline belt clips.)
You may have seen other hybrid holsters with two belt clips, a leather backing and a kydex shell. They are all poor copies. *Reviewers have put it this way. "The Answer is the original. You'd think if others wanted to copy it, they'd make improvements to the design, but they haven't. The Answer remains the "best of breed."
"Kydex fast and leather comfortable."
Most Customers get their Answer with smooth cowhide lining on the inside of the kydex side to protect finish and quiet the draw. This adds only $15.
YES, It's tuckable - you can tuck your shirt in over the pistol and holster.

Accessory rail: We’re asking if your pistol has an accessory rail or not. Most new pistols do have accessory rails for mounting lights or lasers. We’re not asking if you have a light or laser mounted on the rail. (1911’s come with or without, as do some other pistols, so that’s why we’re asking.)

I have had a few holsters over the years, and this is by far one of my favorites. I am not an in the waste band guy either, and for me to rate this so highly it has to be outstanding. The customer service was amazing, we worked together so that it was just so. I am not a very patient person, but I will say it is worth the wait. Spend a few extra dollars and get it lined, trust me, you will thank yourself if you do. The fit and finish are great, it is very well made. The quality of the leather, the thickness of the kydex, the way in which you can adjust it. It just speaks volumes. There are a lot of knock offs out there, and they do not have it right. Go the distance and order one of these!

To say The Answer is a finely crafted holster is an understatement. When removed from the packaging for the first time it screams top quality. From the first moment my hand grasped the thick double walled leather backing to seeing the solid, lined kydex sheath and heavy duty tension bolts, I was impressed. I've had issues with other holsters breaking under the strain of everyday carry requirements. Though I am just breaking it in The Answer's build quality is much superior than any other holster I've tried. It is true, I am a fan.

I have tried countless holsters and finally came across “The Answer”. I have to say, it is just that! I have a very small frame and was concerned about how I was going to conceal without printing and advertising I was carrying. I am using this holster with a Sig p224 but ordered for a p229 with a rail and it works beautifully! It is comfortable all day(even while sitting). For those of you who don’t know, the Sig p224 is a double-stack 9mm. It is not a light or thin gun, but it rides very nicely in “The Answer”. I can only imagine how nice one of these holsters will work for my XDs or my Shield. The gun(s) itself (themselves) fit(s) like a glove and are easy to draw and re-holster.I highly recommend getting it lined with leather. It definitely adds an extra layer of protection for your investment. Plus, The adjustability of the cant on “The Answer” is great! It is simple and may take a couple of tweaks to perfect it to your preference. But, once it’s right, its right! I can’t say enough great things about the quality of both the material and workmanship of these holsters! It is fair to say, you get what you pay for. These holsters are well worth the price and the wait! Don’t waste time going anywhere else for a product of lesser quality. Do it right the first time and buy “The Answer”. I will most certainly be ordering more versions of this holster for my other pistols. Tucker hit it out of the park with this one! Great Job! Thanks for “The Answer”!

I received "The Answer" holster earlier than the time predicted. It is very well made. It fits the Glock 19 perfectly, and it also fits the Glock 26 like it was made for it. I did not have to adjust anything. I've been wearing it everyday since I received it. It was quite comfortable when I first put it on my belt, but it is feeling better as it conforms to my hip. Now, I hardly notice it's there. I did get it lined with cowhide, and the draw is slick and quiet. It also help with the pistol's retention. The only negative was the plastic clips, that fasten the holster to my belt, had what appears to be mould release spots that would scratch the belt if the belt is drawn through them. I took a sharp knife blade and cut these spots of smooth with the inside of the clips. There is no scratching now, and everything works perfectly. I highly recommend this holster! I have one other IWB holster, for a different handgun, from a different manufacturer. While it has held up fantastically for over 16 years, it is not as comfortable as "The Answer".

I don't normally write reviews but I felt this was one product that deserved it. I researched for more time then I care to admit on the various online boards and forums for an IWB holster. I was about set on getting a similar hybrid holster from another company. I won't name names but I couldn't get over the fact that it had obnoxious crosses on the clips and a stamped cross on the leather. Then I came across Tucker Gun Leather. As soon as I saw it knew it was the one. I love American made leather products. From the boots on my feet, wallet in my pocket, and the belt around my waste. Now I can add the "The Answer" to that list. The turnaround time wasn't an issue because all that told me was these weren't mass produced on an assembly line they are handmade to order. There's nothing like the smell of new leather when I opened the package. The quality was outstanding. The stitching was excellent and the kydex fit like a glove. On the various online boards I read people justifying their purchase of a similar hybrid holster on the fact that they "could switch the kydex out for a different gun." Sure that might be great but this is a CUSTOM holster. The leather backing is designed and cut to fit YOUR gun, not just the shape of the kydex. If you could swap it out it would just be some slab of leather with some rivets. This has leather where it's needed for comfort and use and nothing more. I have a beaver tail on my 1911 and the holster doesn't get in the way. I can easily gain the proper grip when my hand naturally glides onto the gun without any part of the holster getting in the way. That's attention to detail. The break in time didn't take long at all. The leather now perfectly and comfortably fits around my hip. What did take a few days was figuring out the best position for the holster around my waist, each time it had to reform to the different position but that's expected. The only "complaint" I have is the leather lining kind of got chewed up on the inside of the kydex (I got the option to line the inside of the kydex with leather). But that was my own fault. During the fitting time I was playing with different positions of the holster. I have slide serrations on my 1911 and during practice draws and re holstering to find the position the serrations scraped against the leather, enough to where they were getting filled with leather particles and the stitching at the top of the kydex was getting frayed. I tried loosening the retention but that wasn't the issue, it was just my draw angle and the fact that I had to clear a 5in barrel out of the holster. Again I'm not blaming the quality of the holster by any means, it was my own fault. I just wished I noticed before I scraped the heck out of it. Now that I have the perfect cant and height on the holster it's not a problem. I just have to be conscious of it when holstering in the morning and taking it out at night. Speaking of adjusting the cant another thing I noticed is it could be easy to cross thread the the adjustment screws if you are not being careful. Pay attention and if it starts getting tight when it shouldn't be tight yet (like half way down) then back it off and try again. For some reason my screws kept wanting to go in the wrong angle. But this is only an issue during the initial search of the cant that's right for you. You're not playing with them every day. Now that I have the perfect position I put some blue loctite on the threads and I'll never touch them again. (unless one of the clips break and I have to replace it) Neither of these two issues warrant the removal of a star, both were user error. I can't vouch for customer service as I haven't had to use it but everything I've read says it's great. Should the need ever arise I'm sure I will have no issues. One thing I found funny is if anyone complained about their Tucker Gun Leather product on an online board Rob would chime in and say something along the line "how about you contact me and we can figure what the issue is and fix it instead of you complaining about it here". To me that's good customer service. He's out there searching the web for complaints about his products and trying to fix the issues. Well that's enough ranting. To sum everything up, stop looking at other holsters and just get "The Answer".

I received my iwb "The Answer" from Tucker about a week before Christmas; right on time and within the 5-6 week turn-around time. Let me say: it was difficult finding a holster at all for my Springfield EMP. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would find an iwb holster of this impeccable quality for my gun. It just a shame that I have to keep it hidden away inside my waistband! Truly a piece of fine leather craftsmanship.
TGL, please keep doing what you're doing!

I tip my hat to Rob and the Tucker team. Their “Answer” is the trifecta of Hybrid holsters. Nothing out there compares with the options, quality and customer service of this product. There are so many options on the market for hybrids. I’ve researched over 30 different brands but can’t find any that provide ALL the options in one platform that are available on the “Answer.” Some are Kydex but not leather lined. Some are Kydex and leather lined but don’t have retention screws and the hardware on the back is exposed. A friend of mine bought an Answer after dropping his drawers in a department store bathroom and his gun fell out (no retention screws on his holster) and went into the next stall. That was an uncomfortable conversation with the guy next to him. Of the many hybrids that I have held, none come close to the quality of this product. As soon as you hold it in your hand you can tell the difference and when you put it on your hip, you forget it is there…it’s that comfortable. Rob is very attentive and quick to respond to any questions you may have or changes that you want to make to your order. I have an “Answer” for my SIG P220 and my XDs .45 and couldn’t be happier. Well done Rob, et all. If I pick up a MOD2 .45 I will be calling on your services once again.

This is my 2nd IWB holster and I love it. After a few adjustments it works great and feels great. I will buy another for my other semi-auto. Thanks

I had a Tucker "Cover Up" and liked it so much, that I decided after wearing it for quite awhile that I would step and get an "Answer IWB"! I am glad I did! The "Answer IWB" as I said in my title for the review, is the answer to wearing a comfortable system.
Thanks rob for going the "Extra Mile" on another build!!

I previously purchased an OWB holster from Tucker, the HF2. I was so impressed that when a new holster was needed for IWB I went to Tucker's website and saw The Answer. It looked like a nice holster then I started reading reviews and those that had them loved them. Once it was received I started wearing it with my Sig 227 SAS Carry, which is a heavy pistol, and it carries great. Like some of the other posters have said it is extremely comfortable. I recommend the leather lined inside. This was my most costly IWB holster but the quality and comfort exceeds others that I have had.
