Designed for civilian and law enforcement concealed carriers, the incredible TecGrip outer layer holds tightly to almost any material and keeps your firearm holstered snugly in place. The design is also extremely comfortable, thanks to high-density closed cell foam that protects the firearm and conforms easily to your body. The TecGrip's microscopic gripping fingers hold securely for superior holster retention when firearm is drawn.

There are a couple of issues with pocket carry that one should be aware of. It requires training and developing a method of draw not only just for pocket carry, but depending on what shirt you wear, what kind of pants, etc. I've had to practice each of these and while I am not proficient yet in my time to draw, I feel pretty comfortable that I have procedures and methods worked out to resolve either not pulling the holster out with the gun or also not hanging the gun up by the rear sight on the draw. Time and practice now for faster draw times.
The other concern I have and it bears talking about for this type of carry is where is that gun going to be pointed when you sit. If you sit and your gun is now horizontal in your pants with your leg? You are breaking one of the golden rules of never pointing your gun at anything you're not willing to kill or destroy, meaning people in front of you are now downrange (such as in a restaurant, movie theater, etc.). Resolution to that is solved by using this holster as an in the waistband holster. I like opposite side draw for this and the best part is because of the "stickiness" of this holster it remains in place and even in the many draws I've practiced so far, it stays put.
So it offers not only great pocket carry, but also great waistband carry.
I would like to talk about the Desantis products for pocket carry and if I didn't have the TLR6 on this firearm I think either of their products would be good, too, but I'm not removing the light just to fit a holster. I did test a Nemesis and it didn't have the stickiness that the Blackhawk has which makes so much difference.
If you've got the Glock 26 with the Streamlight TLR-6 light and you want pocket carry, this is probably one of your best bets. I'm totally happy with it in a size 4 Blackhawk. Price can't be beat either. Good luck, be safe and enjoy. Hope the pictures help as I spent a lot of time looking specifically for something that would work for my firearm setup and didn't find much.
Side note: I've got Comptac and Serpa holsters for outside the waistband carry and love both of those. The Serpa I bought before I got the TLR6 and it's awesome. I had to go to the Comptac after I put the TLR-6 on it as Blackhawk didn't make a Serpa for it (I think one may be in the works or it may even be out now, I haven't checked).
