    I'm a bigger guy, so have never had luck with IWB holsters because of the size pants I wear snd gut.

    So I'm looking for a OWB holster, with maybe suade inside so eventually I don't scratch up my FDE finish on it.

    I know eventually wear and tear will happen, but want to minimize how quickly that happens.

    Can anyone recommend a good product for me?

    Anything Mitch Rosen, Manchester, NH, has is top notch. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Also something to think about, if you want to install a Romeo red dot you will need a holster for those sights.

    If you get grit in suede, it's impossible to get out. So it'll continue to scratch your gun over and over and over again.

    you didn't say if you would prefer an iwb holster. i'm gonna say this cause i'm a bigger than most person and never could wear an iwb comfortably until....i stopped denying to myself i was big and started wearing the correct size pants and belt. and then found i could with comfort. not being mean, just a fact of a big persons life. :) and i went with kydex so the belt didn't crush the holster closed making re-holstering the gun much easier. just sayin'.

    I only use Milt Sparks VMII holsters at this point, IWB and very comfortable. Formed such that you aren't going to crush the holster closed. Not cheap and you'll wait a few months for it but well worth it. I've tried enough holsters that I have boxes of them . . . ones I'll never wear again.

    I have a Vedder LightTuck LightTuck™ Kydex IWB which has a 30 day risk free trial. I have two of these and really find them great. I don't have this holster for the P320C even though I have one because I prefer to carry something smaller. If you sign up for their mailing list they are having a 10% off sale starting tomorrow for Veteran's Day.

    For an OWB holster I have a StealthGear OWB Flex https://stealthgearusa.com/flex-owb-ventcore-holster.html which has great ventilation and is very comfortable. They have a 30 day return policy but they hit you for a 25% restocking fee.

    Try Garrett Industries, they are kydex holsters with leather bonded to the inside where it touches the gun.

    Also Safariland makes OWB kydex holsters with felt lining, I have a couple of their paddle holsters with the thumb release retention. Not really good for concealment, I use them for classes.

    I carry a p320 compact in a NSR tactical iwb kydek with two soft belt loops for appendix carry daily. Huge fan. By far it’s the most comfortable and easiest to conceal. They also make custom holsters if you want to add a light or have something that’s not run of the mill. Last custom holster I ordered from them took 3 weeks.

    It's a carry gun not a museum piece, it's going to get scratched a little.

    Beat my new P320 Compact RX (with the red dot) quite a bit racking it one handed on any available object while simulating a shot arm with TQ applied to a shot arm. It’s a tool. Keep it lubed and ignore the scratches. Or pimp it out and show it off! Each to his own.

    Kydex does not scratch finishes that bad and is vastly superior to leather in just about every way.

    I like the quiet holster and unholstering of the Garrett and since it's kydex on the outside, it has all the retention capabilities. Only downside is they cost more.

    Sorry I can’t add anything ,but ,Thanks for all Sources Guys. I have been thinking about a 320 W/A RMR. I currently have a 938 With a red dot on the trigger guard and am always looking for a better solution . My back is waisted and I can’t wear IWB , so that limits my choices.
