Has anyone tried these concealment vest's out from this company? Some people swear you can concela a full size Colt or a Glock 21 in the inside brest pocket and it will not print. I also wonder quiclky and safely you could get in to action. Thanks. www.coronadoleather.com
Ya know - when it comes to vests - I use mine as pure cover. I really don't feel I want a vest for actual carry.
My Smith & Alexander vests are for me ideal - mostly in hotter weather and when biking. Piece is where it normally is, 3.30 OWB - the vest has cell front left and NAA mini front right - which keeps balance and, reduces wind blow-up prob's.
Once colder tho - either usual OWB again, under open padded shirt or - might occasionally carry in big front pocket of a ''hoodie'' - and then that is more likely to be a BUG or secondary - regular primary still being in usual spot.
I do favor consistency of carry - as my reach to draw is then not only ingrained but free of surprises :smile:
A few years ago I bought my brother the Safari vest for Christmas. He loves it, but when he gets sweaty, he has an allergic reaction to whatever they put in the leather. He gets a rash around his neckline where it rubs.
It's made very well and has lots of big pockets. Concealment pockets are on both sides.
The vest does a great job at not printing, but when it is unzipped, it can look slightly crooked with a larger gun weighing down one side. So zip it (or button it) partway up, or even out the weight with extra mags.
And, my Coronado vest is made of suede, not cordoroy. It will hold my Taurus 617, and it holds a S&W 642 very well. The HK uspc however is too large. The grip prevents me from being able to snap the pocket shut.
I have had a Safari vest for several years. It will conceal just about any size handgun on either side. Absolutely, no printing. My only problem is that it is of such high quality leather that it can be heavy to wear for long periods of time. But, other than that it is a true quality item. :king:
Coronado currently has their car coat on close out at $199. They only have one size though, 38, and that size fits me. So I went ahead and ordered it. It says it will conceal full size handguns, and I figure I'll hopefully have it the rest of my days.
