Opinions/Info on IWB holsters

Looking to conceal my glock 27 and this will be my first holster. Im not the slimmest guy in town but not huge by any means either. I was originally set on N82 Tactical Pro holster because i prefer to carry at 3 o'clock and i liked the single clip idea. But now i came across Alien gear holsters that look pretty darn nice for the price. Plus their "forever" warranty and lifetime replacement seems like a excellent guarantee. But alot of people frown on them because they use injection molded plastic rather than kydex and use vinyl over Neoprene instead of true leather. I prefer a low ride holster with positive cant atleast 20°

Looking for something add low profile as possible. I find it perfectly comfortable to just waist band the gun without a holster but i know that not safe so i wanna carry out right.

I always wear an undershirt as well if that makes ant difference. Looking for suggestions and opinions before i spend $70+ on something i may not like.

Also belt suggestions would be great too.

I have been carrying my Alien Gear for 6 months and absolutely love it. and I am a larger guy(300lbs). I carry at about 3:30/4. Mine is the older leather version, but I have a friend with the new 2.0 version, and it is even better feeling.

I placed my order for the 2.0 last week. Didnt realize that it was a 4-6 week delivery timeframe but i hear nothing but good things about them. They seem to be getting very popular very fast. The negative reviews are all about it being vinyl instead of leather and plastic instead of kydex but those are 2 things that alien gear does not lie about or mislead and they are willing to but a lifetime guarantee on it so it must be decent. It does look comfy too. Im excited to get it!

Sorry Im a little late to post but Raven Concealment is awesome. I carry one of their Kydex holsters that I can switch from IWB to OWB. I use it for my Glock 19.

i'll throw this one in the ring;
http://www.giholsters.com/silent-thunder-gt/

I've been IWB'ing my M&P9c in a silent thunder for several years (in disclosure I purchased mine back when tucker was doing the lining selling them)

what makes it great?
- slim profile kydex
- one-handed reholster
- I cut off the sweat guard (custom "combat cut")
- it's leather lined!! yes, a kydex holster that is LEATHER LINED! that means no clickity-click crappy draw/reholster you get w/ typically kydex holsters...
