    Bikers, what is the longest vest you found?

    Ok, I got a smaller gun (G23 instead of my SR9) and I got a good holster. I trust the holster to retain while I am riding and so I am good there.

    What I found when I tried my standard riding attire with my CC rig on was that my vest doesn't come far enough down to completely cover. My chaps would cover the clips and the grip is mostly covered, but there is about an inch gap between the bottom of the vest and the top of my pants standing.

    So what brand of riding vest have those of you that carry at your waist while riding have you found to be the longest? Or do I just need to order another vest of the same brand I have in a "long" or "tall" size to get the extra length. I am only 6', so I was surprised by this problem.

    Thanks for your time!

    It is the aberration of statistics that you have to watch out for.

    Remember: it isn't the SECOND person something happens to that is surprised by it.

    vests as a rule and by design are short garments and not to be mistaken for jackets or coats...amny i know carry with their shirt out if iwb/owb or go to the vest pocket for carry or a shoulder holster...

    i gave up on my vest when i moved to florida...a layer of leather in this heat just doesnt agree with me...

    I carry my g26 in a fanny pack which I keep in my tool bag on the front end. When leaving my bike parked, I simply put it on, it blends in with my chaps and am good to go.
