    Forgive my ignorance, but what's the difference in the leather types? I see the founder's was recommended, but how does the horse hide compare? Is it all about thickness/toughness?

    I just get the standard leather, going on at least 5 years and no wear (aside from being molded to my body.

    It's like you are in my head. Yes, I have spares. One is none. What good is a gun, if your favorite holster breaks.
    I need to get a spare. the 3 weeks I was out with my warranty repair I had to wear my IWB (that I dont wear bc its uncomfy there) at the 4 oclock. Better than nothing I guess.

    Horse lasts longer. But if its got a lifetime warranty, why?
    No idea on founders series. And the website doesnt seem to list out the differences like the old one did.

    Thanks. Not sure why you'd want Founders for a concealed IWB since nobody else is going to see it.

    I guess I'd have to ask somebody who wears designer underwear to explain it to me. :):
    I just prefer it. I have found it less floppy than some of the others, and while not black, stains less than horse hide (sweat, gun oil, etc). Again no big deal on a holster, but a little bit of a plus.

    And since I buy them at a deal on crossbreed-seconds it's not really costing me much if any extra.

    My P365XL fits perfect in my Summer Special 2 made for a 1911 commander.

    Milt Sparks website is showing SS2 in stock for 365 and 365 XL now.

    I'm still wearing my Alien Gear iwb holster 3.5. Very comfortable I also carry at 4 o'clock position. I work outside lots of bending, twisting, sometimes falling. I've tried many and it's has been the most comfortable.
    Good customer service as well.

    I also still have a few of their leather back holsters as well. Still doing good after 10+ years.
