    No thanks. Might as well stamp "GUN" on your forehead. I'll leave the "purse" to the wife.

    Looks a little like a portable SWAT team on your waist. But if your comfortable with it, do it.

    Plus by the time you turn, unzip and pull out your gun.... it might be too late....
    I like: reach, pull out and bang.

    It kinda does scream out MUG ME like a fanny pack...

    They look like a good idea for hiking around Arizona. I'd take the name tag off to make things a bit less obvious...and would also consider using a fanny pack with my wallet, etc to distract attention away from an IWB holster. The safepacker with a cell phone/headphones attached might also work...particularly if visiting one of the stores that don't allow guns.

    I regularly use a Safepacker, to tote a P229. If the Safepacker is not attached to my belt, I will have another handgun on me, concealed by clothing. Actually, even if the Safepacker is on my belt, I still usually have another weapon concealed elsewhere on my body. A Safepacker is an excellent way to carry a service/duty-sized weapon in extremely hot weather.

    I believe a Safepacker to look far less "gunny" than waist-pack rigs and those militant-looking things from Maxpedition. I have carried mine right past security at numerous places where handguns are not allowed. (I carry by the rules of my LEO status, not the handgun licensing laws.) I reckon the bigger the size of Safepacker, the more gunny it might look.

    The only man purse I will ever use is a fannypack and that's final. And even then, I only use it rarely with certain attire, such as PT gear.

    Seems to me it would look like you were carrying a huge CD player on your belt. I guess it would look ok if it were in hand.

    I use a Maxoedition Jumbo for a diaper bag. No way was I going to carry around some Winny the Poo backpack or something. I got mine for my weak side and I don't normally use it to carry. If I do it's only an extra BUG. Primary stays on me.

    Wouldn't carry that way, far too unsecure and snatchable.

    I can't find the mag but the one I saw recently that said it was for AR mags, water, your pistol and such. I supposed it was for a survival situation. I have a fanny pack-the first time I went up to Branson MO. I made my wife and mother get fanny packs and leave their purses at home. Also my first pistol was a Beretta model 96 in .40. That sucker is bigger than a colt .45 and on me is hard to carry concealed.
    I think it depends on the situation. As a diabetic, when I go hiking or doing some work on the deer lease, it might be a good way to carry a gun, some water, maybe a candy bar or two and a sandwhich, or any meds I might need during the day, and anything as far as a med kit for any injuries or emergencies. For that it might be a good idea.
