    Carrying while exercising

    I was just wondering what kind of holster people use for biking, running, etc? I have a Belly Band and I really do not care for it but I use it because I like my weapon with me at all times. My go to is usually a Walther PPS (with 2 extra mags) because it's slim and light. Any ideas? What do you folks use?

    I don't use a special holster when I bike, but then I don't bike for excercise, so I try not to sweat.

    I've heard good things about Pistol Wear. May want to give them a try.

    I know little on the subject so I'll speak at length.

    If you have an excuse for failure, you will.

    There are always derogatory remarks about fanny packs, but for exercise, I think a good fanny pack is ideal. Some of the big holster makers list them with built-in holsters. I would not wear a fanny pack with street clothes, but with exercise clothing, I think they are fine and a great, comfortable solution. I have tried three different brands of belly bands and I never felt comfortable with them.

    I pocket carry my Sig P938 9mm in a Ted Blocker pocket holster while I am at the gym. I wear jean shorts or cargo shorts.

    Yeah, just not happy with the Belly Band, not knocking it but it's just not for me. Fanny pack is a good idea and I am definitely not opposed to that. I'll check them out, thanks!

    42 is also in Zulu Bravo AIWB holster.

    Both using DCC Clips.

    When Iím out exercising, Iím usually so tired that I could care less about self defense and leave it at home.

    Actually, the way I feel on the last leg of my run is so bad, that if somebody took me out, it would be a mercy killing:)

    Walking and bicycle riding are my two main exercise activities. I do both while carrying with my regular IWB set-ups. Before I lost some weight, I carried in a pancake kydex IWB at 3:00. Now its an AIWB clamshell holster at 11:30.

    One of my criteria for a carry holster is the ability to do my complete range of physical activities while using it. No special holsters for driving, running, exercising, etc.

    While working out in my home, I'm surrounded by loaded firearms within immediate access. While out walking, jogging, or biking, I carry a pistol as I normally do when out and about.

    When biking or cross country skiing, I use a bandolier (tanker) shoulder holster almost all of the time with a full size 1911. In warm months on the bike trail, it is an IWB holster with a Kimber Tactical Ultra II or a SIG M11-A1.

    Pistolwear is pretty nice. I used one for carrying a P938 when exercising.

    I do not yet own but a Hill People Gear Kit bag is also suppose to be good for being active.
