    I have and have worn similar. Not a fan of the velcro release. I prefer a thumb snap unless the velcro is strong yet pull through.
    I have a similar version of this rig from the NRA web site, black w/snap adjustable retention straps. Fits close under my left pectoral muscle. I usually carry my XD40sc but have actually carried my XD45 compact in it too. You could replace several shirt buttons with snaps for easier access. However, after 8 hrs of wear I am happy to get out of it!

    today I am wearing a plain polo style shirt and I have noticed that a couple of the seams for the shoulder straps make it look like I'm cold, if you get my drift. I have also noticed I can see the bottom of the rig if I lean back a little bit, so no leaning in my chair with my feet on the desk, LOL.

Thus far, after over two years of use, my XD40sc has always stayed in place and I've done a lot of lifting, carrying, stretching, bending, etc.... with it on. Try it and you might decide you don't need it. As always, ymmv.
    I tried not using the velcro once before I got the thumb snap set up. Worked OK until I had to bend over a certain way and my fortified midsection jettisoned the gun into my shirt, which luckily was tucked in.

    Are you better off with something like this so there are no lines from the straps? A Better Holster

    Can honestly say I've never had that happen with my gun. My magazine, however, was a different story. I tried the mag slots one time. During a meeting, I felt a rather heavy object come barreling down my sleeve. Thankfully my sleeves were buttoned, which I only do during the actual meeting. When I had the chance, I slipped my spare mag into my pocket where it has ridden ever since. Not sure if the pearce grip extensions caused this or what. I haven't tried with a flat base plate.

    I tried a similar shirt from a different company. It didn't hold the gun grip tight to my chest. If I tightened the shirt to where it was tight, it restricted my breathing.

    If you look at the referenced website and check out the guns in the "Gat Pac" picture, you'll have an idea of how the grips may stick out. Imagine wearing that holster t-shirt, and a shirt over it. Now imagine how easily the grips may print through the outer shirt.

    Those shirts may work for some--different manufacturers, or smaller guns--but mine didn't work for me at all.

    Same thing happened to me with the 13-round mag for an XD-45c. The mag fell out of it's compartment into the sleeve of my long-sleeve shirt. It happened twice. I won't try the 13-round mag in it again unless I strap it in.

    I don't use the velcro strap for my gun. Maybe I'll use the strap to hold the 13-round mag in. The 10-round mag stays in just fine on its own.
