Going to buy drop leg shroud for my safariland 6280.
What version should I prefer?
Double or single strap?

I personally hate things attached to my legs. MY holster is hip mounted on a lowride adapter. If I had to I'd go with the single strap.

+1, mount as high up on your hip as possible :)

Well... friends of my recomend me not to waste my money because my 6280 is good enough as it is. Their arguments was almost the same as yours - dont attach crap to your hips.

If you really want it on your hip go single strap and ride it high. Or get a double and cuztom remove the top strap and ride that high as well. The higher it is, the less wobble while running.

I suscribe the hip choice. In my case, leg things usually move around my leg so you find the pistol in front of your leg instead of your lateral.

I also prefer a single strap only if absolutely necessary. I prefer the pistol on belt or into a pouch.

Your decision should be based on what your range of operations is going to be.

That being said, here's my two cents: drop holsters restrict mobility, no question about it. If you're in an environment where you have to run, or are dismounted for long periods of time, the last thing you want is a cumbersome holster impeding your ability to move.

So, where's the trade off? You could mount the holster to your chest, but that may make primary to secondary weapons transitions awkward and difficult.

Recommendation?

Consider the G Code RTI duty slide mount. The company makes an adapter for safariland holsters, and the design of the mount allows you to run first line gear with no changes
