Because of how similar the ProTuck and ComfortTuck are, however, we will be focusing on comparing these two holsters for this article.

We’ve broken down all the features of both of these incredibly versatile hybrid holsters and have compared them side by side to help you determine which is the best fit for you.
So keep scrolling to read all about the ComfortTuck™ vs our brand-new ProTuck holster.
Products Mentioned In This Article
When it comes to function, the ProTuck and ComfortTuck™ are pretty similar. Both hybrid holsters are designed to be worn inside the waistband in the 3-5 o’clock position, which is the most popular style of carry since it’s both comfortable and easy to access.
Both holsters are highly customizable and feature many similarities, including their material, clips, and comfortable nature. They are both designed withtwo points of contact to your body and are made to naturally contour to your waistline for even weight distribution and concealability.
Though both holsters serve a similar purpose, they are very different in terms of style and adjustability. We’ll get into that next!
Both the ProTuck and ComfortTuck™ are hybrid IWB holsters, meaning they are made from a combination of Kydex and leather.
Both holsters are crafted with a genuine .080” Kydex® shell. This premium thermoplastic is heat-molded to your gun model for a precise fit. The main benefit of Kydex is that it is thin, durable, and secure, and fits comfortably between your body and waistband with minimal printing.
When you order either of these holsters, you have the option to choose from dozens of different Kydex colors. You can choose one color for the ComfortTuck™ and up to two colors for the ProTuck – one for the front and one for the back.
These hybrid holsters are also made with premium leather to add comfort and movement to them. They both come standard with 10-12 ounce black leather and can be upgraded to natural tan horsehide leather.
While these holsters are designed with the same materials, the way they are utilized is entirely different.
The ComfortTuck™ is designed with a Kydex shell that is completely backed by a wide piece of leather, so no part of the plastic touches your body, making it incredibly comfortable to wear for long periods.
The ProTuck, on the other hand, is designed with a shell made entirely with Kydex and two leather “wings” that back its belt clips. The result is a more traditional Kydex holster that’s shaped to naturally contour to your body with added leather wings that make it even more comfortable.
The ProTuck and ComfortTuck™ holsters feature the exact same clips. Both holsters come standard with two of our patented Rock Solid Spring Steel Belt Clips, allowing for two points of contact and some adjustment.
These tuckable clips are rust and scratch-resistant and are designed to be low-profile. They are also backed with spacers to prevent them from squeaking against the leather. After all, that kind of defeats the purpose of “concealment,” doesn’t it?
The J-Clip is a polymer clip designed to be extra low-profile. It works by wrapping over your waistband and behind your gun belt, where it then clips under the bottom of your belt, making it less visible and allowing for deeper concealment.
The V-Clip offers the deepest concealment of any of our clips. It is designed to go over your waistband and behind your belt, where it attaches to the backside. They are hands down our most inconspicuous clips.
If you’re having trouble deciding, you can place your order with all three styles of belt clips so you can easily switch between them or mix and match until you find what works for you.
In terms of adjustability, the ProTuck and ComfortTuck™ are fairly similar, though the ProTuck advanced IWB holster does have a few more adjustment options.
Being hybrid holsters, neither is designed with adjustable cant, though both are molded with a 10-degree cant – or an FBI cant. Because both holsters are meant to be worn in the 3-5 o’clock position, this is the ideal cant for easily drawing from any position on or behind your hip.
The ProTuck is also designed with fully adjustable retention, so you can decide whether you want your retention tight, loose, or somewhere in between. It also features three levels of adjustable ride height, so you can choose how deep you want to conceal your weapon.
Both the ProTuck and ComfortTuck™ come with several additional features, including a variety of customization options.
Both holsters are crafted with custom sight channelsto accommodate most standard and aftermarket sights, suppressor sights, and loaded chamber indicators. Even if your gun has aftermarket sights or modifications that are not listed on our website, you can contact us or leave a comment in the order specifying your alterations, and we’ll see what we can do!
All of our gun holsters are designed for right- or left-hand draw, come with corrosion-resistant hardware, and can be cut specifically for red dot optics.
Both of these holsters also come with a full sweat shield to reduce the amount of contact your pistol has with your body, keeping your slide clean and dry.
