    I would look into a holster that does NOT have a hard wedge molded into the Kydex. (Have a Tenicor like this sitting in my big box of holsters, as I did not care for it.)

    Try this:

    I use the Pedag Perfect Shock Absorbing Heel Pads. (Black, smooth leather on one side, light grey foam on the other.)

    The large ones work best on a holster for Glock 19, 17 or similar. The small ones work better on the smaller holsters for a Glock 43, 48, Shield, etc.

    They provide just the right amount of cant/camming on the holster, as well as some padding for comfort.

    The smooth leather also allows the holster to move a little as you move, without catching/grabbing the material of your particular undergarment like some of the foam and gel ones do.

    Being designed for shoes, they also breath a bit so they don’t get terribly sweaty.

    I put the soft/hook side of 4”x2” self-adhesive Velcro strips on the back of the holster, and the hard/hook side on the light grey foam part Pedag heel pad so the black smooth leather part faces out/against my body. (Trim the Velcro to fit.)


    I used the above set up on a JM Custom AIWB for Brent’s Pistol Groundfighting class he hosted in Washington a couple of years ago.

    Worked exceptionally well.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the suggestion. If I don't hear from Tenicor about doing an exchange soon, I'm going to get one of the holsters in the SI store (as I want to get one of the NPE holsters anyway and would rather do one order). I looked up those heel pads and will snag some of those as well, once I get the holster and figure out whether I'd want a pad on it (my Archangel for my VP9 works pretty dang well without it, I think because of its length).

    Got an exchange going with Tenicor, so hopefully that will remedy everything nice and easily. I asked them to do an exchange for a 17-length Certum, which will allow me to mess around with pads of my own sort, rather than the molded-in hard ones.

    If you have a holster without a built in wedge I like this pillow wedge idea. Just got one for an old Fricke holster. Thought it might be a gimmick but works well and is more comfortable than the foam wedges I have. Just ordered another one of their belts, also. They make good stuff.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Hadn't seen that done before, but that looks interesting. I take it the fill is soft, so that it gives a bit more than closed-cell foam or neoprene wedges?

    The fill is soft but still holds it shape. I really did think it was a gimmick but it is doing what it should and is more comfortable. They also make one you can add or remove fill. I am very happy with the regular one.
