    Sounds to me like you've got a good setup already.

    Interesting how the descriptions of holster anatomy has changed since I started carrying. Back then, if the leather backing of an IWB holster extended up a half inch or more than the rear of the upper grip of the gun it was called “combat cut”. Now, it’s a sweatshield.

    Got the same problem down here in south Florida, got some real nice leather holsters but I sweat profusely in the hot humid weather down here, ruined nice one already, leather turned white from the sweat and salt, my remedy was I stopped wearing em and went to kydex for my EDC ... No sweat, no strain I just sit and admire the holster with the handgun in it ....
