DeSantis has been making fine leather holsters for decades and the Style 001 Thumb Break Scabbard is a fine example of their craftsmanship.
I ordered the three slot, right hand draw, lined model for my Sig Sauer P229 .40 S&W for everyday carry around my farm and deer lease. This is a duty holster, not a deep concealment option. It fits the Sig like a glove, just right. The only fault is that the thumb break strap is a bit tight due to the Crimson Trace grip installed on the weapon. The strap fits right over the laser, meaning the strap ends up being about an 1/4″ (or less) of a perfect fit. However, it should fit well once it is broken in a bit more.
The holster works equally well through the more upright slot or the forward cant belt slot. It is just personal preference as to which works best for you and I have used both.
The weapon stays secure and presents well when drawing. I chose the thumb break scabbard model for security as I work on fences, climb in and out of tractors, scamper up the tower blind, and generally lead an active lifestyle out in the country. I wear a different rig for concealed carry in the city.
This holster is highly recommended.
