    We are retired. My wife worked in corporate marketing before she retired and had to dress up for work. My wife does not own a belt of any kind now. She has a couple of Coronado Leather purses with built in holsters for the very rare occasion when she dresses up. She wears stretch shorts and tank-tops about nine months a year now. When it is cold, she wears stretch pants and a pull-over top. When she carries, it is usually in a fanny pack with a built in holster and a quick zip tab. If not for fanny packs, she would very rarely carry.

    I wore one many years ago. It was made for a gun, quick pull zipper and the holster was there. I carried my Glock 19 in it and it was great. Fanny packs became less in vouge and I went to IWB. I may have to dig around my closest to see if it has escaped any junk purges that have occurred.

    I think that there is only once criterion for a Carry choice. It is that you can access the gun quickly enough to defend yourself. So if you carry in a plastic bag, Fanny pack, holster under a shirt, pocket, bra, or any other way it is OK as long as you can not be the bacon on the grill if trouble strikes.

    Actually, this one is designed a little better than that, with the buckle at the sed of the bag. I do not carry with eh bag behind be, at least not all the way behind me, and the buckle is either at my side, or in the front.

    What I think is ridiculous is the comments discounting the fanny pack as an option for concealed carry. No, I don't use it all the time, I carry IWB, but there are times, the fanny pack is a great option, like on the bicycle. I did a 400 mile bicycle trip using it. I also took an IWB holster with me, but didn't use it. I also use it on occasion while out doing photography, or hiking. The are simply another option, when other carry methods won't work as well.
