    Keep Looking...

    Perhaps there is a reason for a limited supply? I only have the 5.11 vest. I did buy (I-Net) a holster for the vest...didn't even use it. It is way too hard to draw from the vest pocket...I assume the jacket would be the same...too much velcro for quick retrival.
    I would rather spend the money on a good holster and use any jacket for cover.

    OMO...your opinion may vary...

    Stay safe...don't use velcro in a vest or jacket pocket...

    I bought the jacket last month for $29 online closeout. It fits me just fine (I'm extra large & long armed). The velcro pockets are somewhat difficult to get a quick draw. I just use the jacket as another place to put my J frame along with a speed loader. I can have my hand on the revolver without giving away my intentions. It's not perfect, but I feel I got $29 worth of jacket.

    Blackhawk Ind. makes nylon holsters that are adjustable to the gun. how big of gun you trying to carry? I have a holster that fits my HK USP.
