GIMMICK is what I think.

If you want a cosmetically clean gun holster in good leather. If you want retention utility and will accept some scuffing on your gun use Kydex.

I have a gun for EDC only. My IWB and OWB holsters are Kydex because my gun is a tool the I treat like a tooll. I do not abuse it, but if it is scratched I lose no sleep over it.

If you want vo herring on the gun, keep it in a gun dafe.

I tend to agree that so-called leather or suede lined kydex holsters are a gimmick. However, I think that a kydex reinforced leather holster offers the best of all worlds -- i.e. real leather against the gun with kydex reinforcement and an adjustable tension screw.

Inspect all of the photos for the holster linked here, and you will see that it's kydex sandwiched between leather: https://www.versacarry.com/compound...-owb-leather-kydex-hybrid-fits-sig-p365-only/
