I was looking at an ad for a Safari Land #328 synthetic holster. These holsters are leather lined and are supposed " look and perform just like their Leather counterparts and they resist wear much better than leather". I generally prefer leather holsters, but I could see some benefit to the synthetic shell. I was wondering if anybody here as any experience with these holsters that they could share. Are they really as good as they sound?

The description mentions that its Safari-Laminate, which is what most of Safariland's holsters are constructed of. Usually a thin layer of kydex sandwiched in between a suede interior and a faux leather exterior. It should be G2G.
