A few days ago I was browsing the PA2A Forum when I came across a thread that caught my eye. With a title like Knockoff Holster, I thought it could be interesting. After reading the thread, I thought it would make for an interesting topic on comparing prices between Name-Brand and Knockoff Holsters.
When I came back to the thread to begin writing up this post, things took an unexpected turn. During my initial read through, I didn’t notice that the Ebay Seller’s Handle was listed. I did a quick search to find out where the holster came from and got an instant bad vibe. This wasn’t just some no-name holster being re-sold on Ebay, it was a blatant knockoff.
I realize that there hasn’t been anything groundbreaking in the Hybrid Holster world for some time now. I also realize that the chances of this holster performing as advertised are good. My hangup with it is calling the holster Crossbreed Supertuck Style. Had it been described as an Hybrid IWB Holster with a similar size and shape to Crossbreed, I think I would have been far less bothered.
Looking further, it would appear that those who have purchased the Crossbreed Supertuck Style Holster have been pleased with the product. I’m not convinced this is the best option for anyone looking for a modestly priced holster (Crossbreed has a store dedicated to Seconds).

Would you trust a Knockoff Holster or do you feel that a Hybrid Holster is a Hybrid Holster, no matter who’s name is on it?
