+1, but even Kydex can be defeated.

There is a famous, or infamous, video of a Fobus holster being twisted off the paddle in rear takeaway situation that started months of Interwebz range wars back and forth on Fobus specifically and on synthetic paddle holsters in general. I don't find the belt slotted single layer kydex rigs any more secure. The mechanical attachment to either the paddle or the belt slots is the weak point.

Color me old school, but if I have to be out carrying concealed for a living my holster is leather and has belt slots.
