    Have not seen the blackhawk in person but I do use the galco and it works very well. I like the holster part of it so it does not move around when I am walking/jogging. I usually carry my j-frame snubby in the medium one.

    I have two of the large sized galco's and have used them in one role or another since fanny packs were " acceptable at large " . Nowadays i dont use them for carry much rather i use them as a " grab and go " bedside holster that contains a pistol , 4 or 5 mags , a flashlight , ect.. Since my galcos date from that far back and are still in use it is obvious they are of high quality, the " scuba suit" neoprene retention has not loosened on either one from new tho some of the nylon is getting pretty ratty . IIRC the last time i used one as an actual ccw holster was in the early to maby mid 90s when the wife and i took a motorcycle tour from here down to the border , Brownsvill TX and back . At that time it held a Delta Elite 10mm 1911. It worked well for the bike trip and having everything i needed in one little pack that i could sling over a shoulder exiting the pup tent we packed is in fact what pretty much convinced me that the REAL role of the fanny pack from now on would be as a bedside kit . Some of the places we set up camp then i sure would not today lol .

    +1 for the Galco. The neoprene holds up very well, and provides a good, secure fit for the pistol.

    And here in Florida, they don't stick out like a sore thumb like they might in other locales.

    Here's a Galco that I'd sell. It's brand new. Even fits a 1911, amazing!

    I went to the Camelbak site and couldn't find "Gremlin". Do you have a link FA?

    Could it be the "Goblin" you wanted to find? Try the site and go to military hydration packs. Goblin and Demon are shown for concealed carry.

    The Goblin looks like a good fanny pack and it is not in "I have a gun" black color either.
    God bless our troops!

    The website isn't particularly user friendly and after you find the Goblin the information is pretty minimal. I would like to know how large a gun the thing will accomodate but can't seem to find that info. Looks like a good pack though. I like something like that for hiking.

    Makes me a little nervous carrying my 1911 right next to a potentially leaking water source. I'd like to know the dimensions also.

    This is the one I use (in brown leather). It comes in a variety of colors and fabrics, even two-tone. I like the fact that it has a good holster for the gun that can be positioned as desired on the velcro.

    Highly recommended.
