Default who carries xd subcompact?

Looking for a comfortable iwb holster. I currently have a T-Rex arms raptor. I have tried it at the appendix position with and without the claw and I have tried it at the 3 o clock position without the claw. It's not that comfy. Any suggestions? I already have a kore gun belt.

I have the xd subcompact in 9 mm

Currently use a Alien Gear IWB at 330, very comfortable but a pain to get on and take off. Hard to get to the pistol in a car. so I just order the Raw Dog Tactical Defender Pro

Heard great things about it.

Fingers crossed that it does not wind up in the holster drawer.

Supertuck horse hide at 430/5 o'clock but I am not thin. Not super overweight but definitely not thin.

I carry an XDS 9 3.3 and I'm left handed. I ordered a leather lined IWB holster from Garrett (like Barrett but with a 'G') Industries who made my other holsters. Made to order, but I'm happy with mine. Its pretty comfortable on me. As a lefty I carry at 9 o'clock not 3. I do not appendix carry.

I carried an xdsc for about two months before getting an EMP. I used both a Stealthgear and a Vedder Lite Tuck with a claw at appendix. Both were comfortable. I just felt safer with extra rigidity of the Vedder. The Vedder concealed better.

Need more info. What about it isn't comfy? Does it rub against you at the bottom end? Or ??

I run an XD40 Subcompact. I use a Ghost Concealment Belly Band that I really like for casual days (cargo shorts/t-shirts) and I have an On Your 6 Kydex IWB holster for those jeans/pants and belt days. I also have the Alien Gear ShapeShift for OWB, but I haven't tried it IWB yet. Still figuring out what is comfortable.

I carry the xd9 4in service model- and Im a bigger guy in the mid section. I use a kydex IWB holster by Concealment Express. I have the carbon fiber version and honestly, it works real good. Carry at the 3-5 position and it stays in place. I use a blue alpha gear belt and the wide belt clip on the holster holds up well. And lastly, you can get it off amazon prime and if it doesn't work out, just send back for a refund. Ive tried a fobus OWB paddle- still have and use at the range and a bravo concealment DOS single clip IWB. I don't like the clip because its narrow (about half the size of the concealment express) and doesn't feel sturdy enough. Good luck
