Appendix Carry Holster Login/Join

I just picked up a new CZ p01 and while it's off to Cajun Custom for some trigger work I figured might as well order a new holster.
So my question to the brain trust is.
A) which holster maker should I look at?
B) I have seen what is called a wedge sounds good in theory but does it really work?
So what do you guys like?

JM Custom kydex has a couple different styles. With wedge or wing. Both work for me.

There are other makers

I went with a high noon holster when I wanted to try appendix. It just isn't for me, but the holster was nice.

How big's the gun? Mine was made for a FNS9 4" barrel full size, but depending on the dimensions of the P01 it might work for it. I'd be happy to let it go if it'd work for you.

Stealth Gear USA's new Revolution AIWB. I have it for the P30sk. Simple design and it works well.

I read an article where someone made a wedge by using a Dr. Scholl's heel gel cushion velcroed to the back of the holster. I did the same, very comfortable.

I went with the RGrizzle Leather Southern Sidekick for my P229R that I appendix carry. I could not be more pleased with it.

I'm not familiar with the wedge.

Yes, very much so. Wedge is a AIWB specific design that angles the gun butt into your belly, reducing printing. Some newer AIWB designs partially or fully replace the wedge with a wing.

AIWB holsters are very individual and finding that perfect fit may take more work than strong side carry.

Can some of you appendix carry devotees see my post and please post pictures of what your appendix carry looks like when you are seated in a car or desk or dining room chair? I have seen tons of pictures of appendix carry saying how great it is but no one ever shows what it is like seated. My conclusion ( only pictures will dissuade me) is that appendix only works for super skinny people that rarely sit down

"Super skinny" is the body type LEAST well-served by AIWB. The weapon worn at AIWB is in the inguinal crease, and for there to be much of a crease, there has to be either muscle or fat on each side of the crease. Skinny folks do not have much muscle or fat.

I highly recommend JM Custom Kydex. He has a wingclaw/built in wedge design that is phenomenal. I've bern carrying a P30L in the AIWB Wing Claw 2.5, and it disappears under a normal fitting t shirt. His regular AIWB holsters with the teardrop shaped wedge/no claw are great as well.

Dale Fricke's Zaccheus holsters are great, too.

EDC my G42 almost exclusively AIWB with an Uncle Mike's pocket holster. Works great, though the soft side is a bit soft once broken in.

Planning to get the Remora IWB holster for the same purpose; have the RFT version, but it's just too bulky for AIWB for me.

For me, the clip-less design is what makes AIWB comfortable, as the ability to adjust and slip just a bit makes it that much better. I've never had retention issues, for what it's worth. I carry it around 1-2 o'clock, just inboard of the thigh portion (inguinal crease I suppose is the technical term a previous poster noted). A properly length pistol slide for your body shape will help - not too long so that it is always banging into your leg/gut, but not so short it can't retain itself in your waistband.
