    Which brand of belly band is a good one? ?

    I've been looking at belly bands for a while now, and I like the general idea. Being a woman on the go with three kids that normally wears workout clothes this is looking like a good option to me. The only thing is I'm very new to this. I'm not new to cc, but its very recent that I've started carrying on my person. With that in mind I need some advice. I'm looking for comfort, with the ability to be worn with my usual workout type clothes. My carry is a Smith M&P 9mm I like the one from here: Belly Band Holster in 4" by The Well Armed Woman
    Take a look at that and shoot me some opinions/suggestions of others if y'all don't mind. Tia!

    Belly band with added shoulder strap. Can comfortably carry a 1911 CMDR for 18 holes of golf.

    I have a Bluestone that I got for $20. I wear it more than any other holster - and it can hold just about anything but a Desert Eagle.
    My EDC: Springfield XDS
    My sometimes EDC: Colt XSE LW or G26

    I've only used one, Pistol Wear's PT-ONE. It works well. I used to go running with it, concealing either a Ruger LCR or LCP. I once put a Ruger SR9c in it, but it's a pretty heavy pistol for a belly band.

    My wife hasn't started carrying yet, and what to carry the gun in has been her biggest obstacle. She just can't find anything that she's comfortable with.

    I carried in this for almost 3 years. Have one for my Ruger SR40C and one for my Glock G19/G26.



    I really found this to be the best belly band adaptation for me

    My wife just recently bought the breathable one from Well Armed Woman. She wore it Monday and Tuesday while we were in St.Louis and commented how much she liked it and wish she had bought one sooner.

    The one I have is a Galco Underwraps. Seems to do the job nicely.

    I like that one because it actually covers the trigger with something more solid than an elastic bandage.

    You can get a Bulldog for $10. It works and is 6" wide. Uncomfortable. I have a Desantis, which is 4" and thicker material than the Bulldog. 2 gun pockets and 2 accessory pockets. $35. There's also the Can-Can, a fitted band with multiple pockets, made for women. There's the Pistol Wear, Thunder Wear, 3 Speed. Lots of options.

    Edit: There's also the Crossbreed, which part of a modular system and Lethal Lace.

    I know little on the subject so I'll speak at length.

    I like that one, but I'm still looking around because I want one I can run while wearing. I'm not sure about that one.

    Perfect timing, Whome! I've been looking for just the right running/jogging holster.

    Thanks for starting this thread, as is often the case with this forum, I'm learning quite a bit from our experienced members.
