Is kydex better then leather?

Leather vs. Kydex — it’s been a point of contention among shooters since the first days of the Kydex holster in the 1970s, but Let’s just say they’re both pretty awesome and both have a place, however!

We should not give Leather holsters a pass that easily. Though both options definitely have their strong points, the cons on the firearm. Leather doesn't last like Kydex holsters and has been well known for being safe and effective. Leather holsters, on the other hand? Well, to be fair... there are more then a few horrific images of what happens with leather holsters.

Turns out that if you don’t take care of your everyday-carry leather holster, then it could deform and cause major issues near the trigger. Also if you’re also running a firearm with a trigger that is light as a feather well, then you’d have the perfect storm for an accidental discharge — not to mention a subsequent gunshot wound to the leg or worse.

When it comes to leather, the rule is simple: Take care of your holster, and it will take care of you for awhile. That's not to say kydex holsters don't need to be maintained, it just takes a lot less and provides a superior level of protection and retention that isn't found with leather.
