    One of the clips on my Crossbreed Supertuck broke (my own fault) and as I was browsing around trying to find some thicker clips, I found that Comp-tac has a new IWB that mirrors the Tucker Answer. At half price you say? That was my selling point with the Supertuck. Had this (the MTAC) been out at the time, I'd've definitely gotten it over the Supertuck.

    Seems alot more sturdy, VERY comfortable, quality is far superior, double layer leather everywhere but along the gunline as to aide in reducing thickness.

    $78 shipped from Comp-tac. I also ordered a spare body from them. I'll post pics of it when it comes in.

    How's it conceal? I take it it's a lot more comfortable than a regular ctac?

    I don't have a CTAC but I don't think there's any way it couldn't be more concealble since it's leather against your skin as opposed to kydex. :dunno:

    Concealment is standard. I don't tuck my shirts so I can't comment on that but it should work just fine.

    I figure the concealment is the same, I meant more along the lines of on your body type. I was just wondering how comfortable it is more than anything. Seems like it would be.

    Too bad you don't have a Ctac to compare :o

    Now it makes sense to me :mamoru:

    I like that it's almost the same as the answer and it's half the price with no wait time. May have to add one to the holster collection.

    It's basically a mirror of the answer considering, from what I've read, Comp-tac is/was making the kydex stuff for Tucker. :dunno:

    As soon as I pulled it out of the package and put it on I tossed my Crossbreed into the back of my closet. The quality different is amazing considering the $5 cost difference. :rofl:

    It has a couple retention screws but I haven't tweaked with them since the retention seems fine how it is.

    how is it when you sit down? I can't stand kydex cuz it digs into my leg/hip when I sit down.

    it's kydex on top of leather so the kydex doesn't come into contact at all with your body

    I don't mind my Answer at all. It is very comfortable. Obviously moreso when standing than sitting, but even sitting or lying down it's not too bad. I can totally see how someone could fall asleep wearing the Answer.
