"Fits my Kimber Pro TLE II like a glove, as you would expect from the El Paso Saddlery Company. High quality inside and out."

"This a well made holster. A good fit for my LDA 6.45 a little tight but should break in well. Get a 1 3/4 belt for it if you don't have one already!"

"After hearing a lot of praise for El Paso over the years, when I saw this at the price CTD was asking, I couldn't pass it up. I carry a Colt 1991A1 in it and it is great. Very comfortable even with a long day of carry. I would highly recommend this holster."

"I purchased a Sky Six over a year ago and thought it time to give praise as due. As a gun shop owner, I carry a variety of 1911's day to day with visions of sales, and have never had a problem with the holster. The leather is uniform, well finished, and molded with accuracy. The stitching is heavy-duty and 100% intact after a year plus. The same goes for the suede lining; not a single flaw. The thumb strap fits well and stays snapped until you decide otherwise. And darn it, it looks good to boot. I highly recommend this quality product from CTD."

"I wanted a simple leather holster for carry around the house and camp, and the Sky Six met these needs excellently. My Kimber Custom II .45 pistol is held securely and comfortably.As other comments have said, the construction is well done, with heavy duty stitching and precise boning. Not shown in the product pictures is the steel reinforcing behind the thumb snap, stiffening the thumb break and ensuring easy snap-off when the hand grips the pistol. With practice the thumb break snaps open very naturally as part of the draw.This holster breaks in very well by wrapping the pistol in the plastic bag that the holster is packaged in, and then inserting the wrapped pistol into the holster. Keep it there for about a week and the pistol will slide in and out quite easily.This holster is designed for Condition 3 carry: the thumb strap will not close around a dropped hammer.The holster protects the wearer from the thumb safety digging into their side, and I have never had the safety lever change position while carrying.I carry at the 3 o'clock position, and even with the high ride of the pistol grip, the muzzle of the pistol easily clears the holster and can be presented to the target.Overall, a very good product, especially for the price."

"Very high quality. Attention to detail is excellent and thumb break is stiff and works great.I wanted to add some specific detail here for those thinking to buy: 1) I have a Kimber Ultra Covert (3\" 1911) with the CTC Lasergrips. It does fit over that laser bump perfectly.2) It does fit cocked and locked perfectly.3) The holster doesn't keep my pistol super tight against my body (6' 195lbs, small-ish love handles) compared to lower riding pancakes. This is probably going to be true for all high ride thumbbreaks carrying a short-barreled 3\" pistol; the top tends to push out a little. It should do that less with longer barrels. I knew that going in. I got it for the extra retention while hiking, camping, etc where concealment is easier and there's not many folks around. Just something to think about for the application you're intending on using it for."

"As others have stated this is a great holster. The leather is very nice and the lining excellent. I have a Kimber Pro TLE/RL II with a light rail and it does take some break-in to get the holster to fit the added width of the rail in front. Though not as concealable as an IWB this holster works great under a light jacket during cooler months."

"Cant beat it for the money. Fits my Colt 1991A1 like a glove! Rides high enough to be covered by a sweatshit and the cant makes it comfortable when seated or in the car. Only thing to note is the thumb break cant be snapped with the hammer down."

"Good quality holster. A little softer leather and breaks in easy. Not as stiff and hard as other holsters I have owned."

"Bought this for my Paraordinance P-14 (5 inch) it`s perfect! High quality Leather & fits well, I never even asked about fit for my Gun, just took a chance. Also took a chance on the double stack Mag Pouch (leg-535) works well for my Para!!! Excellent Fit, super high quality & looks nice. Mag pouch is far nicer than expected, will not fall out etc...Perfect, CTD Rocks!!!"

"Got this for my S@W 1911 Compact and it was a perfect fit. The flap would not snap into place unless the hammer is back though and as good a fit the weapon is it is extremely bulky. A great open carry rig, but would not advise for concealed carry!"

"This is one of the finest leather holsters I have used. The holster rides very high, which I like, as I carry concealed. The leather is a bit thick, but I am certain the quality would be much less with thinner leather. The stitching is beautiful and the fit for my Kimber Tactical Ultra is second to none. I also use it for my Custom II full size! Great holster."

"I am so impressed with this holster. I got it for my 1911 3\" Colt Defender, it fits like a glove! One of the best holster's I've bought yet, I hope they make one to for the Kimber Solo."

"This holster is top notch craftsmanship. It is comfortable and fits great! BUT BUT BUT the thumb break rides the thumb safety and ANY slight movement will flip the safety OFF. Maybe an after market low mount thumb safety is the answer, but I would rather fit my holster to my gun than fit my gun to my holster."

"I have wanted a thumb break for my Rock Island M1911-A1CS since I bought it. Holster fit great out of bag, wish it came in black, but a little leather dye and no issues!"

"I bought one of these on a whim; the other reviews seemed favorable. Fast shipping from CTD, as always. I've tested it with my pistols and ordered another one. Great fit for 1911s right out of the bag. High quality leather and strong stitching. It's a great product at an outstanding price."
