    OWB Concealable?

    Are there any OWB holster that are easily concealable with a shirt, maybe ones that ride a little higer?

    Also shoulder rigs... what does it take to conceal them? I wear light jackets all winter in PHX, but in the summer i reduce to a t-shirt.

    Oh, btw the gun is a Glock 23. Thanks!

    You will find that you will probable end up with several holsters. No one I have found will do the trick under all weather conditions and all clothing worn. I wear an IWB Tuckable style and have never found an outside rig that suites me for concealment the majority of time. A shoulder holster is good until you are in Tee Shirt time. I also carry several different guns depending on where I am going and how I am dressed. I find that trade-offs have to be made.

    The best concealable OWB I've found is Kramer's horsehide Belt Scabbard. I have one for each size. Very thin, comfortable, and durable. Rides high but stable. Like nature's kydex, but easy on the finish and doesn't rattle.

    UBG's Bonneville. Rides a little higher than a lot of pancake styles. I like it.

    Garrity's Stead-Fast rides higher than anything else I've seen. Plus, it's gorgeous. However, it is very specialized, and needs to trap a belt loop, which can be awkward if your pants have wide loops or don't have one exactly where you want it.

    I still wear a Kramer vertical scabbard (askins avenger type) for most wear. The Garrity makes the hammer of the gun print very badly on me when I wear my usual longer-but-narrower t-shirts. With a jacket or other outer cover, it's awesome...probably since that's the garment it was designed for (per the website).

    Tucker's HF1 rides high enough to conceal with a t-shirt .

    I love Tucker's HF1 also, and would recommend it to anyone. It does add some bulk though. That's my open carry holster everytime.

    I have an Alessi CQC/S on order. It has snaps for easy on/off. I've seen many pics & reviews & am convinced that it will work well. In the time being, I have a Don Hume H721OT which works pretty well.

    The kramer belt scabbard is my pick for the OWB role.

    Picked up this Milt Sparks, rides very high and conceals well... Model 60TK

    They make 'em for Glock too.

    I will be the different one hear giving my recommendation to the Bianchi line of holsters and not one of the custom makers with long lead times. I have carried a G23 OWB for 11 years now and have used a lot of different holsters and by far the best I have used so far is the Bianchi Carry Loc, remember that with OWB carry your belt is just as important as the holster.

    I'm very happy with my Hume 721OT. It's great, especially for the price!
