Default J frame AIWB kydex holster recommendations??

Guys, I searched this forum and it seems that it has been since May/2017 since this question has been asked. I am bringing this up again since it has been over a year and I am seeing allot of newer kydex holsters on the web.

I want to know what you guys are using and find comfortable and economical as well. I have posted a pic of one I had made a few years ago at a gun show for $35.00 and it has been a great holster however it only will accommodate my 642 and not the slightly bigger Pro model. So let me see what you guys are using, I am partial to kydex too as it is the thinnest for me. Thanks for the help...

Darkstar J-Frame Clip-On – Dark Star Gear or Jm Custom Kydex AIWB Holster: JM Custom Kydex are the two best for appendix IMHO.

I prefer a simple Galco Stow and go however as I am not a fan of kydex on small guns.

Only kydex holster I ever really liked was the FIST 1K.

Dara if you want less expensive. I like mine for my LCR. Otherwise, JMCK.

I'm a huge fan of the extremely cheap Blackhawk ARC. For less than $20, they are easily the best deal going for appendix holsters, and maybe the best deal for any holster period. The problem is they only make them for Glocks, S&W M&Ps, Springfield XD or XDS, Ruger LC9, and a J frame.

So if you carry something obscure like a CZ, Beretta, SIG, BHP, or a 1911, you are out of luck.

Anyway, I have an ARC for my Glock 19 and it's my favorite thing about the gun.

I'm expecting a side guard minimal snap in the mailbox any day now. Not a big fan of clips nor bulk, really looking forward to it. I prefer leather, especially if it goes inside the waist. At $50, it's a bit more than 35 but not too bad.

For kydex I like Dale Fricke; quality product, quality maker, and they'll work with special requests.
