I have leaf gear in my bag and in my truck. Quick change and doesn't add a bunch of heat to ya. Solves the problem real easy.

Blackhawk SERPA for vests, chest rigs and war/duty/gun belts.
Safariland Level III drop legs.
Concealed is Blackhawk Italian leather with built-in spare mag holder.
For basic pistol holsters, for semi-autos I use Blackhawk ballistic nylon with attached mag holder, or Uncle Mikes Sidekicks. I don't wear those -- they just protect the guns from moments of being only human and dropping them on hard surfaces.
Holsters and carry options depend on the season as well as location. When I lived in AZ I was pretty limited in the size of gun I could comfortably conceal. Now that I live in VA I have a lot more options.
But I have to agree with Lattice!

For concealed carry, I use either a sholder holster and a jacket, or a IWB holster at the 4 o'clock position. I currently have a Galco King Tuk for my 1911, and a Front Line IWB holster for my Jericho 941/Baby Eagle.
I realized I never answered the original question......my leather of choice is Mitch Rosen (Express Line), I've had his leather for years and it wears really well.
Summertime in AZ I would carry a Ruger LCP in a cheap Uncle Mikes pocket holster, cause it's hot as hell. I really like my S&W 442 in an Galco ankle holster when it's jeans and a t-shirt. When it really cools off I can carry however I want.
Blackhawk Serpa III is the best holster made in the last thirty years! Same with the off duty Serpa.

Going to splurge for some nice leather holsters this coming year, assuming there is a this coming year.

What is your Holster of choice?
In case any LEO's are curious, I do have a permit.
Galco (nylon) ankle for Beretta Tomcat,
Serpa for Glock30+FN5.7 retention isn't for everyone but I like to ride motorcycles. Someone hits you on purpose it's great to know when they turn around to run you over again they won't be shooting you with your own gun.
Galco Paddle IWB, for Para P-1045,
Anytime you get a IWB holster it's important to make sure it fits in your pants (unless you wear BDU's all the time like me (adjustable waist).. I use to wear small of back on motorcycle until someone punched me there, while after that got a pickup which horribly uncomfortable.
Love cross-draw while driving for my Taurus Judge..
It's always nice to have options.
I also have a triangle shaped pack from 5.11 that has a detachable waistpack, which let's me put a full size .45 in the waistpack and a AR-pistol on my back.
Comfort matters a lot, after that retention is super important, I find it easier to defend a gun grab with a high-ride holster but that's personal preference. I hate shoulder Holsters, but that's preference to lol.

How 'bout a belly band or smart carry rig? No belt needed..comfort is questionable
