OWB = Outside the Waistband
IWB = Inside the Waistband
G19 = Glock 19
PHOTO ABOVE: This is the side of the holster that faces away from the body. Leather quality, finish, stitching, and tooling are good. This $45 - $55 OWB belt slide holster is intended (by me) to be primarily for range use, provided that I get around to getting myself "holster certified" at the ranges where I usually shoot.

PHOTO ABOVE: For full-time use as a concealed carry holster, for my tastes it sits just a wee bit lower than I like, but it is good enough. General all-day comfort is okay. Access from the driver's seat is okay if I wear it on the point of my hip. As I mentioned earlier, this OWB holster is mostly for use at ranges that get nervous about IWB holsters, but I'll use it for knock-about concealed carry on the occasions when open sores from tertiary syphilis or senior-citizen diaper-rash limits what I can stick inside my pants.
Need I mention that holstering requires care in NOT GETTING A SHIRTTAIL TUCKED INTO THE HOLSTER WITH THE HANDGUN? Glock type triggers are especially disagreeable to a coexistence with items of clothing that sneak inside a holster.
PHOTO ABOVE: My Gen 4 Glock 19 in the Bianchi Remedy holster prints a bulge that is hard to hide even under my oversized frumpy-fat-old-man shirts. I did wear it to several public places (grocery stores, department stores, restaurants) and nobody freaked out and called in the gendarmes soooo I'll assumed nobody cares about my lumps. For concealed carry of the Glock 19, I much prefer using IWB holsters such as the Ken Null UNS or the Lou Alessi PCH; both of the aforementioned pull the butt of the G19 tighter against my body than does any OWB holster I looked at. IWB holsters make for better concealment, but having a decent OWB holster for the G19 gives me options.
