Default Decent holster for 686 5"

I've looked high and low for a holster for my 686 Plus 5" and cannot find anything decent. Simply Rugged has one but that holster is not what I'm looking for. I need a basic forward cant, strong side OWB holster with a thumb brake retention.

Anyone?

Thought I had a picture, but I don't. Here's one he made for me for a 4" with a red dot.

I looked at their stuff and although nice, I was a bit apprehensive about the price. Then again, $100+ really isn't that bad for a quality holster. This is the one I chose.Field Carry - Mernickle Holsters

So I guess it really boils down to me not being a cheap skate. Lol!
