    Colder Weather = Comfy Carry

    Although I am far from a lover of winter, I am thrilled to go OWB again.

    Anyone else feel the same?

    Gotta love OWB, I wear one in FL most times a good one will hold it close so a t shirt covers it fine

    Cool

    Summer CC has always been a sore spot with me. With Fall and Winter on the horizon I'll soon be bundled up all the time. Much easier to CC when wearing more clothing. It only comes off at shower time. HUA

    Fact is I may go back to carrying my 380 1911.

    I'll sure be dang glad I got a ponytail in a couple months!! Woo Hoo HUA

    In years past I often carried my 380 AND my 22 Beretta. 44R beats 22R any time if you NEED IT. HUA

    I carry IWB year round, so cold weather does me no favors whatsoever.

    Most of my holsters are AIWB, but I love the freedom of OWB. So, yes ... can't wait :)

    I've got an old Primos fleece pullover I wear a lot in the winter. I could conceal anything under that thing.

    I'm a fan of the winter. For some reason, I'm more comfortable in layers and I do enjoy being able to carry OWB, especially when it's a lot easier to conceal.

    I too am a Winter person and I welcome the colder temps and carrying larger frame semi-autos in an OWB.
