Crossbreed HolstersFounded in 2005, Crossbreed Holsters is truly the story of American small business success. Known for making some of the most functional, if ugly, holsters available today.
The company is the brainchild of Mark Craighead. An avid member of the shooting community and daily concealed carry advocate, Craig found himself purchasing a number of holsters to carry his various pistols and ended up frustrated with the fit or finish of them all. The comfortable holsters did not provide adequate levels of reliability and performance while the ones that worked properly were a pain to wear.
Eventually Mark decided to come up with his own design. The resulting holsters such as the Supertuck, Minituck, and QuickClip are often considered some of the ugliest holsters available today...but they work on all levels.

Crossbreed holsters have enjoyed a type of underground "indie" success. Marketing for the company's products is noticeably absent from both mainstream shooting publications as well as pro-gun website banners. Sales are primarily driven by word of mouth with large portions of different forum communities spreading the gospel of Crossbreed to others on a person-to-person basis.
The company operates around a very conservative ideological platform. Mark is a very outspoken Christian, and operates his business in line with his convictions. Even the company name and logo enshrines this central focus in a very visual manner.
Currently, Crossbreed Holsters turns our new models on a "less is more" framework. The current lineup has less than 10 different models being produced and no fast expansion of choices is expected. All reviews for these different models are available below.
