    Holsters for track pants?

    I'm about to buy my first gun, leaning towards the Glock 26. I've been looking around for holsters but they all look to be for jeans/belt and I'm usually in track pants when I'm out casually. I prefer inside the waistband, as unnoticeable as possible, not too big, and comfortable because I plan on jogging with it in the morning, wearing it to dinner, etc... Does anyone of know any? Thanks in advance.

    You'll need a Smart Carry type of holster. Obviously track pants aren't going to hold a holster that attaches to them, so you'll need to look at something that attaches the pistol to your body. Thunderwear and Smart Carry are the two brand names I can think of.

    That'll be perfect. A little more comfortable and secure looking for the morning run especially. Thanks

    Yeah, I understand. Anything that holds it to your body is going to be less than ideal. Glad you are getting some other options; they look more promising for something that would fit all your criteria in one shot.

    Look at the Remora holster, I've seen some reviews on it and there have been some Youtube reviews on the holster. Looks like a pretty good holster, though it would take me some time to get used to a holster that doesn't really attach to anything.

    Holster shirt? I have seen some by 5.1.1 Tactical that look like under armor type fabric and would hold the firearm up near your armpit like a shoulder holster.

    I have one of these. If you like compression-style shirts then you will love this. I wear one all the time and stuff my M&P 9c or my Ruger LCP into it with a spare mag on the opposite side.

    Well, you're correct when you point out that most rigs require a sturdy platform to function well. A decent holster with solid belt/pants and a location along the hip that holds it well and comfortably is going to do that. To the extent you compromise any of these, you'll generally compromise the result.

    In flimsy pants such as "track" or "sweat" garb, I'd opt for something along the lines of SmartCarry or similar "belly band" holstering. IMO, sturdiness is still a requirement, and since the pants can't offer this the belly band rigs can be a good alternative.

    You might not like the compression shirt if you're planning on jogging, I found the pockets were so big a smaller gun bounces around if you do anything more than walk and it doesn't take long for it to start rubbing you the wrong way.
