Has anyone ever ordered from concealed carry outfitters? What did you think of the vests?
I kinda like the way they look and will be good for fall weather that is too warm for a coat but too cool for just a shirt. I am looking at them more for style then utility.
I love the vest, the only thing I don't like about the vest is it's dry clean only, and I don't recall them telling you that anywhere on there site but other wise I think they did a good job at making the cut and fit look like just another vest.
I thought those big signs "This man carries a gun" are only for Hawaiian shirt guys, yea and those guys with cargo pant pockets. I like my vest, having options is good.
I like my vest and when the weather gets cooler and I feel like dressing up a bit I like it. I've never been made while wearing it and it's got room for extra magazines and flashlights. Well worth the money. I even wear mine to church or banquets.

I carry a Colt Delta Elite 10mm in Milt Sparks VM2 with 2 extra magazines on my belt. This is normally worn on a belt under my bib overalls and works great for me. My wife carries a Walther PPS .40 w/Crossbreed holster.
I have 5 vests that I wear threw out the year. I also have a lot of Hawian shirts that I wear. Who cares what people think ? They can think what ever they want.
I think the best plan is to have a variety of options. A concealed carry vest is one, hawiian shirt for hot weather, mabe a black leather vest for cooler, biker type gatherings. I even cut the sleeve out of some old denim shirts to wear over a t-shirt. Looks kind of redneck or biker, but the idea is to blend in with the environment you plan on being in. So plan ahead and look like to intend to blend in and be "in the gray zone".
As an old fart & not fashion concious, I found a loose fitted pull-over sweater vest works well with IWB carry in cool weather and doesn't fall into the typical CC stereotypes ...
I wear the photographer's type of vest that has lots of pockets for carring stuff I am a big guy so I ordered them from Big & tall catalog, living in the mountains here in NYS people do a lot of fishing here localy so the vest does not look out of place, it conceals all of my large hand guns with no printing at all
I bought this vest about 10 years ago from Coronado Leather and have even worn it in church on Sunday and have never been "made" by anyone.
I often wear fanny packs (for a variety of reasons) and, once again, have never been made. What works works

I recently bought a vest from Concealed Carry Clothiers and I like it alot. It is nice enough to go with my slacks and tie, but not too hot for South Texas. I do with that it was a little bit longer, so I could carry a full size pistol OWB.
I try not to worry about the fashion police.
