One of the most common questions folks have when it comes to holsters is a no-brainer -- how well do they last?

I mean, if you're going to spending upwards of Uncle Mike's Holsters money on a product, it better deliver.

A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled on a post on Reddit, of all places, comparing two Crossbreed Holsters -- one after 5.5 years of wear and tear, and another barely used.

"I have been carrying a Kahr PM9 with a Crimson Trace laser almost everyday in a crossbreed horse hide holster for the past 5 1/2 years," Reddit user Headake386 reported.

"Buddy of mine dropped off his new crossbreed holster to me since he doesn’t use it. Here is how they compare. Thought it was interesting how mine has aged."

You can definitely tell which one is the older:

There's nothing like the look of broken-in leather.

"Looks ready for another 5.5 years if needed," a Reddit user commented.

Headake386 noted that "Retention is still good and it has become more and more comfortable to wear over the years. I don’t even notice it any more."

I don't know if we could get higher praise than "It feels invisible and looks ready to finish out a decade of regular service."
