I have a Galco leather pocket holster and a DeSantis Nemesis. I like them both. They both work fine as a pocket holster. The Galco is also good for using in a carry bag, it has a better retention on the weapon and is quite durable.

I had some good luck with Remora pocket holsters. They give you a lifetime warranty and everything is made with marine stitching everything and it’s got that rubberized finish so it sticks into your pocket like that DeSantis I just felt that Remora for my J frames was good pocket holster.

When I pocket carry, it's a BG380. I rarely pocket carry my J frames. When I do, I have a Desantis Nemesis and a Mika pocket holster. Hard to compare them straight up, because the Desantis is squared off and the Mika is the round cut version. In jeans, I slightly prefer the Nemesis. In a jacket pocket, I seem to always grab the Mika.

Considering you can buy the Nemesis on Amazon Prime for $16 right now, and have it in one day, I don't think you can go wrong with it.

Good luck.

I bought an Azula off eBay and love it. Stiffer than I expected and the cut fits my jeans pocket perfectly. Rough side out, decent retention, never shifts position.

I have a 351C. I use a DeSantis Superfly. For pocket carry, its my favorite. DeSantis Nemesis is almost as good. The holster stays in my pocket EVERY time I pull my gun out. Very consistent, 100% dependable for me. I wear loose fitting pants every single day, Under Armour sports type. The new type are great for pocket carry. The pockets are a tad deeper then years past, and the draw string is thicker/stronger and ties tight. I also carry my 342 in the DeSantis Superfly. I can't say enough good things about the holster, especially considering it was only $28. Completely covers trigger too.

I don't pocket carry very often, but I normally use a DeSantis Nemesis with my 642. It is a bit on the thick side, but it's inexpensive and readily available. It doesn't hold onto the gun, which is a good thing for a pocket holster.

I also have a Blue Force Gear pocket holster. It's much thinner, kind of like a semi-rigid neoprene material. It's more comfortable to pocket carry, but it does grab onto the gun a bit more. I find I have to exercise a bit more care when drawing to make sure the holster snags on the pocket so it doesn't come out with the gun.

Boraii pocket eagle. Its a pretty minimal pocket holster. Super low bulk, and a strong hook to ensure it stays in your pocket on draw.
