    I have the belt and it works great....for IWB, the end of the belt attaches to the velcro before the holster, but when I cinch it up for OWB, the end reaches the holster....an easy fix on that one is to thread the belt the other way for OWB....

    when I got my belt it said to measure 1 inch larger. However, had I just left the belt the same size as the measurement I took, I would have been fine. I measured 36", so I ordered a 37. I have plenty of extra room wearing IWB, and OWB I actually could afford to have a 36" belt. I don't know where they came up with their measurement instructions, but it left me with a belt that was a bit too long. They say it gives about 1 3/4" adjustment I believe. So with a 36" belt, that's plenty of adjustment left in there for me either IWB or OWB.

    i think any IWB holster that fits your weapon is perfect as long as your ALWAYS carrying while wearing those pants. if not. they fall down or trip ya. even with a belt you'll look like a bag of laundry tied in the middle.
    What's this button do?

    safepacker. It hides a gun between the front seats of my pickup. Easy draw while driving. Also, my nightstand gun w/ spare mag goes in there.

    Why my nightstand gun? well, I carry a spare mag while out and about, do I really want to take the chance that my spare mag is in my bedroom dresser while me and my gun are defending the homefront somewhere else and the mag in the gun goes tango uniform.

    I don't carry it on my belt, but use it other places.

    I've used a safepacker for several years with my P226ST. No, it doesn't fit business attire, but it wasn't designed or intended to. It was developed for climbing and hiking and backpacking, a side benefit is that it fits well on a seatbelt. With the right clothes, it is a generic, canvas pack on the belt - I never had anyone blink when I wore it on my belt in the mall. It also serves well as a bedside holster when you are travelling. Mostly, when I carry concealed, I carry in my Brommeland MaxCon V, but when I am camping or hiking, or driving long distance and staying overnight in a motel, I take my safepacker along, too.

    Just got a safepacker for carry while hiking. The traditional IWB / OWB was just unworkable while wearing a daypack or lumbar pack.

    The Safepacker fits very well on the hip belt of my packs, and blends right in.

    I have the Safepacker for my full size M&P 9. I dress too light in the summer to carry any other way. I even have the shoulder strap so I can just grab it and take it with me. Noone knows what it is. It also fits well in my motorcycle hard saddlebags and, to ensure noone steals it when I have to leave my bike to go in a store, I just grab it and it goes with me. Pretty handy......in my opinion.

    I don't own one, but I've seen one in use.

    YMMV one hell of a lot.
