I promise no links this time....

There are times when I like my shirts tucked in so the IWB works very nicely for me....as to size, I don't find the IWB to be too big at all. I carry at about 8 to 8:30 being a lefty, and the holster rides behind my hip with the grip tucked against the small of my back, the horsehide front is at about 8:45 and the rear about 6:30 and I never feel the holster or the weapon....

Smaller doesn't always mean more comfortable, all the weapon weight is going to be riding in one spot with the EZ Clip, not spread out...I'd certainly recommend a quality belt for the EZ....something that will not bend or cause your pants to ride lower on your carry side...(an easy way to "spot" a concealed carry).

I just don't know if I need the iwb since I almost never tuck shirts in, could you post a picture of how it looks being worn? I'm just thinking it looks really big

Yep, I've heard that all my life.

Do those clips go on your pants or belt?

The answer is 'YES'.

When you stuff that sucker inside your pants (IWB) the clips will go over your pants and your belt. If you're not wearing any pants, they'll just go over your belt.

Also carry my PPQ and P99C the same way.

Does it not seems like a bunch of material being pushed inside your pants? I guess you get used to it

If you use the right holster and find the right carry location for you (meaning 1 o'clock, 2 o'clock, 3 o'clock, etc., then you'll almost forget you've got it on.

Would you guys think that EZ holster would be noticeably less comfortable?

I had a single clip holster for my PPQ and I just didn't like the way it carried. This holster was from a very reputable holster maker....it just didn't work for me, so I sold it. Just like Olsoul said, the wider (two clip) holster will help distribute the weight of the pistol more evenly.
