    Check-out the NRA store, if I remember they had some of that stuff.

    Summer's coming so you won't need a coat

    I have a Carhartt work jacket that my girlfriend sewed a soft holster with a thumb break into for my BUG.

    I'm selling my 5.11 aggressor parka. I have an eddie bauer 3/4 length canvas jacket that looks and works far better, and it's not a concealment jacket.

    Bag or coat carry are not part of my plan either.

    I thought that's what they made coat pockets for?

    I checked out the Sigtac canvas coat and then bought a similar one from the Sportsman's Guide.

    Guide Gear Concealment Jacket, Brown, Holsters, Guide Gear at Sportsman's Guide

    It was cheaper than Sigtac's version and very well made. (Someone on another list reviewed Sigtac's canvas coat and said it had major printing problems.) SG's has heavier duck canvas than even my Carhartt chore coat, holds the gun's weight without sagging and has a couple of dedicated mag holders. And the best part is it doesn't print at all.

    All in all a great deal.

    I bought it cause I'm doing a major road trip later this year and I figured it will be easier to carry that way while driving.

    Hope that helps.

    My problem with jackets are:

    - What are you going to do when you take it off?? Leaving the gun in the jacket pocket defeats the purpose, isn't smart and isn't legal in some areas (like mine).

    So, that said, I see only limited practical use for jackets.

    - If you are strictly going to be outside. It is thus a "task oriented" jacket.

    - If you are going to be inside too, find a vest, Hawaiian shirt, or buy the Shabak jacket/shirt (thin enough to be a shirt). Israeli Secret Service (SHABAK) Bodyguard Jacket - good product, good outfit to do business with, and reasonably priced.

    I have the SigTac Leather coat. It's OK in a pinch, but I prefer a OWB holster. I don't like the way the coat distributes the wieght of the gun.
