    Sounds like you need a Galco (or similar)belly band or a Smart Carry.

    I think if the pouches are high quality, neither would be an issue. However, one never knows until it is purchased and worn. I wish I could help you out, but the only thing I can think of is a smartcarry or some sort of CCW undershirt.

    There are a number of flatter fanny packs aimed at the athletic/outdoor crowd. Mountainsmith makes one or used to. If you are in your athletic gear and carry a slim fanny pack it would only seem natural it's where you keep your pocket stuff. IMHO the only time fanny packs look suspicious is when you already have plenty of pockets.

    Someone posted about these in the last week or two. It looks really interesting, I think the other poster was looking for something for running... If you get one be sure to do a review...

    Here's the link to the other post...

    I like the looks of this product and I think it would work for a number of activities, or just plain wear. Looks like an OWB smart carry...

    I think this holster has possibilities especially for deep cover. Inexpensive enough to be worth a try! I may have to add one to the "Box-O-Holsters".

    KA-BAR the knife people make what looks really good for a concealed fanny pack the TDI Fanny Pack. It fits close to the body and can be worn under or over a shirt. You can get them for under $30.

    look around the net and you will find many belly bands. as this one goes it does not look bad. if it does not work you can put it with your collection of holsters that look good, but did not work.

    Thanks for posting that link. I think I just found the answer to what to wear when I'm working out!

    I just bought a belly band for my .380 and I wish I had seen this first. I can only wear the belly band over a tshirt because it's so scratchy. And not too secure for the firearm, it seems like it's going to fall out. This looks designed better to go on skin and just better all around.

    And less floppy looking than the Smartcarry. Esp for moving around kind of activities.

    Thank you for posting the link. Maybe I need a new 40 cal pistol to go with one of these.

    Looks interesting, and one of the better prices for something of this kind (never could figure out why the price point on these seems to be $50+).

    My main concerns to learn more about:
    - How hot would it get, especially when exercising? Even just walking around, my Smartcarry gets pretty warm for me.
    -How are the draw possibilities? Their little video demonstration makes draw look fairly painful, and don't show whether it's possible to get a good grip while drawing...the examples just seem to show a pinch grip grabbing somewhere on the slide.

    Keep us posted if you get one to try out...I really like the looks of this one.

    I

    will let you all know how this works out, it was suggested to me today at the gun range to purchase a thin pocket holster and see if it holds in place if the pistol moves around, if not i might need to add a few strips of velcro to keep it positioned.
