    Pistol Wear - Holsters for Concealed Handguns

    Bookmarked for future reference.
    I like the looks of this 'carry', also...it might even be an alternative to those ladies who hate purses and belts. Worn under a loose garment, I think this might be a great idea.

    I finally got tired of jogging with my smartcarry and ordered the "pistol wear" exercise holster. On the site they say it has a sweat barrier. Ill give a report when it gets here.

    You're supposed to sweat when you work out?

    I went for a 3mile jog today and the Pistol Wear belly band worked perfect. It was comfortable, stayed in place and kept the pistol totally dry. I wore it all day to see how it fared as an all day deep concealment holster and it wasn't great. The area of skin under the sweat guard gets really uncomfortable after a while. This belly band is definitely made just for the workout. I'll take some pics and write up an good review and post it back here.

    Jimtem,
    I watched their product demo video and wasn't too impressed with the draw, at least how they showed it. Could you get a good combat grip on your gun?

    Two suggestions.

    The first is from http://www.tommysgunpack.com/ their gun packs work. I love them on long trips. I snap it on when I go to fuel up and I have my 1911, two extra mags, cell phone, flashlight and wallet. Check out the website and if you subscribe they will send out killer sales information. American made and real quality. I have two of their gun packs a medium and a large. I use the large as a "survival pack" when I am canoeing. It carries a Ruger MK III 22/45 with optics on it!! It doesn't look out of place in the woods and with practice it is a smooth draw.

    The second suggestion is a Safe Packer from https://store.thewilderness.com Again a great American product. They have an adapter for it that holds water bottles and looks at home on the track or trail. I've carried a G26 in one and it works.

    These options work for car carry as well as exercising.

    Good luck,

    Rick

    The gun is loose in a roomy pocket so when you reach for it you don't know how you are grabbing it. You have to adjust your grip as you pull and draw. Its a bit awkward. I would prefer an open carry thigh holster but the pistol wear seems to be the best way to carry concealed comfortable without rusting out the pistol. Because of the uncertainty about the grab I have chosen to not have a round in the chamber.

    I hate cardio very much. That and working my abs. I guess that is why I don't have a "six pack". I do think cardio is very important but jogging wouldn't be my first choice because of how hard it is on your joints.

    I typed up this review a few days ago but when I hit submit it said java error.

    Pistol Wear Pistol Wear - Holsters for Concealed Handguns

    Pros:
    1) The pistol stays dry even when you sweat heavily during the workout.
    2) The pouch and the pistol stay put. There is no bouncing or shifting.
    3) The holster is very comfortable. No rubbing, scratching or poking.
    4) It is held tight to the body so it doesn't print much.
    5) The top is open but tight and curved a bit so it is easy to reach in to get the pistol but its not open for sweat to get in.


    Cons:
    1) The Velcro strap that wraps around the front curls out on the end and you can see this threw the clothes and it looks funny. It looks like you have something under your shirt. It can be fastened down with a safety pin.
    2) The shorter strap that us under the longer strap does't have Velcro on the back side so it goes all over the place. It bunches up under the holster. It works its way around the long strap and sticks out bunching up under your shirt. They give you this little Velcro strap to secure it but that is a joke. See attached picture.
    3) The holster does not work for all day use. The area where the pistol goes has a sweat barrier and this area during the day gets very sweaty and uncomfortable. But hey its suppose to be that way to keep the pistol dry just for your workout.
    4) The top and bottom of the pouch curl in or out after a bit and it pushes out on your shirt which is no biggie while you are jogging but when at the gym you start to fee self conscious about this puffy bunch under your shirt.

    All in all its a keeper. Nothing else works for the workouts.
