The SuperTuck Deluxe is Crossbreed’s pride and joy. They claim that this is their most comfortable and most concealable holster in their collection. They are made with a Kydex construction riveted to a leather backing. The cool thing about Crossbreed is that you have the option to order it with horsehide when it’s in stock. Many people like the horsehide because it is more resistant to sweat. Having a dry gun on a hot day is preferred! The horsehide aids in this very well. The leather is cut in a design that is unique to Crossbreed and many people love it. If you want to fork over an additional $7.50 you can get the holster with a “Combat Cut” which basically takes more leather out from behind the grip, and is cut lower, and closer to the Kydex form. There is a row of 4 holes on each side of the holster to give you the option of raising or lowering your belt clips, independently. So if you want your handgun canted forward just raise the front clip and lower the back clip to your desired location. Pretty simple. The clips themselves are my biggest hang up with it. I should first say that Crossbreed offers different clip options for an additional $10. The ones that come standard are a very shiny black and are stamped with their logo. I love their logo but that and the shininess make the clips pretty noticeable when your shirt is tucked in. I personally wear brown belts most of the time so these are not the best clips for me, but I also usually wear my shirt un-tucked so they’re not much of a problem. I hope to transition to either the J-clips or V-clips soon. As far as the tucking goes, the clips are designed with a rubber spacer to create a separation between them and the leather to make tucking your shirt in a little bit easier. Just make sure you hang on to them when adjusting the height of the clips because they are separate pieces.

Our Rating + Very comfy! + Keeps your firearm very low if that’s how you like it. + Form fitting. + Having options for backing and clip style is nice.
- The standard clips are shiny and stamped with a logo. Although it looks great, even with a shiny black belt they stand out. They really stand out if you wear a brown belt. This is where having options for the J-clips or V-clips is nice.
