Advantages of a Thumb Break
Unless you’re carrying concealed or just using your firearm recreationally, a thumb break is a practical concern for law enforcement officers and active carriers. It requires a second of extra effort to draw your weapon by unsnapping a small (usually leather) strap. A good, form-fitted open-top holster will not require an extra retention strap, but some wearers like the peace of mind having one provides.
Most people prefer the look, smell, and feel of a leather break over Kydex and nylon. The natural body-conforming materials are comfortable for all-day use. Available in brown or black, it’s easy to match a good-looking leather holster with your gun belt and a pair of leather shoes. A well-maintained leather holster should last throughout the years.
