I wore a G26 in a Galco Ankle Glove daily for 8 years. Very well made and comfortable holster, and it's still in very good shape. The only reason I went away from it is that my agency bought us new backup guns, and Galco doesn't make an ankle glove for the P320 SC. I now have a Desantis ankle holster which is functional, but nowhere near as nice as my ankle glove was.

Tried most of them over the years, the Ankle Glove is the best of class (in my opinion). The Alessi is very well made but didn't cinch up for me and very loose/uncomfortable. I carry a 27 in the Galco easily when wearing jeans or cargo pants that the legs are boot cut. With dress slacks the Glock 42 or 43 is more concealable.
ETA- the Galco Ankle Lite is a good choice also, have one for my Kahr PM9.
This is what I've used for years. I like it because I can carry a 43, 42, RM380 etc. I had an ankle glove for a G36 years ago but the stretchy stuff tore away from the leather holster. I called Galco and I was not pleased with the service. The holster was only around a year old.

I agree with Benner P220. The Ankle Glove is all things that many others are not. I have tried several including the original Galco and some cheaper offerings. The fit and feel of the Ankle Glove is far superior to anything I have found yet. It's secure and comfortable and most jeans or cargos don't get in the way of access. Just MHO.
