This is my daily carry holster. I've had it for about 6 months and it's holding up great and keeps my pistol secure and well concealed. This is the second DeSantis IWB holster that I've purchased (the other is for a Bersa Thunder, not interchangeable, btw), and they are both comfortable to wear and very well made.
I'm attaching a pic of my Ruger LC9s in this holster so you can see the ride height and fit.

I purchased this because of the great price and previous good experience with DeSantis gunleather. The holster leather is either a stiff suede or split cowhide and about 3/16 thick. There is a finished leather upper portion around the opening to keep it open for re-holstering. The belt clip is plastic (Kydex I hope) and grips my pants firmly. There is an outward hook on the clip to catch the underside of your belt to hold the holster in place while drawing the gun. The clip is attached to the holster with an allen screw which can be loosened with the enclosed wrench to adjust the cant. The screw holds the clip very tight. The clip extends almost 3" from the screw and I can tuck a polo or standard button shirt in there nicely. The holster fits the LC9 perfectly, completely covering the trigger guard and leaving the grip fully accessible. I wear this about 3:30 to 4:00 with a slight forward cant though I have tried a few other positions and it is very comfortable in all. One thing I'm not crazy about is that the leather upper portion adds about a half inch thickness to the gun while holstered. It's a trade off, without this the holster would fold tightly making reholstering a two handed job. If you keep the clip at a straight 90 angle this thicker portion will ride just about your beltline. I'm still in the breaking in stage with this but it's been very comfortable to wear for hours and the leather is supple enough that I'm sure it will conform nicely. Keep in mind this is not a retention holster. All in all a good buy, much better than some of it's plastic counterparts and just as good as some more expensive models. I would purchase this again.

This is a high quality, comfy, and highly functional holster. The clever adjustable clip angle makes it versatile, and the option of tuck-ability is nice, while the leather isn't overly thick as on some leather holsters. Easily the finest concealed carry holster I have ever owned.

This is my preferred UC holster for just about any time of the year except late spring through early fall when the weather's warm and the layers of clothing aren't as heavy. The one I bought this time around for my Ruger LC9 does the job well. I'm just rolling into the cooler season and am transitioning from the Hunter Company Pocket Holster to this one. I've used these over the years for everything from Smiths, Colts, S&W and Charter Arms revolvers to Smiths, Taurus, Glock, Hi-point and Ruger semi-autos. All of the weapons I've carried have been in one of these at one time or another. You can wear it inside of your belt/waistband (my preferred) and can adjust the canter or you can wear it outside. I've even seen some of my compadres wear them in a coat pocket (with modifications to the pocket). This particular style is my "old reliable". I recommend this if you're good to go with some bulging at the waist or small of the back level. I don't and won't carry my weapon inside of the waistband belly carry position. No need to go into detail there. Just understand that I'm not a fan of taking any real unnecessary chances. The deployment of my weapon from this holster inside of the belt tactically, defensively or otherwise has never been an issue. Sometimes, holstering it can be a challenge if it's worn and has molded itself around the weapon. It doesn't last forever but it does last a long time. I've found that this particular style will mold itself around the weapon and snag the weapon before the holster wears out, or at least that was the case for a very few of those I've used over the four decades of concealed carry. But it was rare and when it did start doing that I'd replace it with a new one... problem fixed for another several years. At least for me.

I have used this holster regularly for about 9 months. this is my favorite IWB holster! It keeps my Ruger LC9s secure and well concealed (does pretty well with tucked shirt too) and it's reasonably comfortable while sitting (carry on my right hip). The holster is also very easy to get on and off my belt and reholster the weapon.

I own/used the DeSantis Intruder and found it less comfortable, harder to conceal (especially with a tucked shirt) and was not happy with how secure the weapon was--it felt loose at times. This holster was very difficult to remove from my pants. I also used the Blackhawk A.R.C. IWB; it was like wearing a brick inside my waistband--not comfortable! The Blackhawk was also not as well concealed, it was difficult to reholster the weapon after a draw--because of it's low profile it would be blocked by my pants and it was a struggle to get the pistol back in the holster. By far, I like the Sof-Tuck best as a tuckable, IWB holster!!

I've been using DeSantis holsters for over 30 years. I find them to be durable, comfortable and perfectly sized for the gun they are made for. This Sof-Tuck holster fits nicely in your waistband and the clip is designed to keep the holster in place when you draw your weapon. In addition, the clip is designed to be well concealed when carried. Highly recommended.

I like it for in the pocket carry. It adds very little to the size of the firearm. I like it being so soft. The firearm can be pulled out easily-- sometimes too easily when just trying to remove the firearm and holster.

I got this after owning another big name hlster, and finding I really did not like that one. From the moment I first put this holster on, I havve loved it. The previous tuckable holster was nearly impossible to use, as I dress casual dress most of the time and needed to tuck my shirt in. I fought and fought it, but not so with this one. I find myself even forgetting I have it on. I am a bigger guy, 5'-10", 250lbs...I wear this in my jeans, in my Dress slacks, and it has been a pleasure to use. My carry weapon is a Ruger LC9, so it is very concealable, but this holster just totally complements my gun to the utmost. Thank you DeSantis, for such a wonderful product. I tell everyone about it, and how much I love it.

If you carry a concealed weapon, always make sure the holster fits the weapon properly. This holster is a good fit for the LC9.

Like all DeSantis products I've purchased, the quality on this is excellent. Must comfortable IWB holster I've tried. The adjustable cant allows me to carry my LC9 with ZERO printing. The design of the belt hook (under the belt instead of over) prevents the holster from pulling out when drawing. The reinforced design on the top makes re-holstering a breeze.
