Just curious if any forum members bought one of these & if they would review it for the forum.
I know absolutely nothing about it.
I know that the retail is expensive at $129.00 MSRP but, I've been seeing them pop up on Ebay for right about $60.00
(Still seems expensive to me piced at $60)


Sure looks a bit better than a Shoot Me First Photographers Vest though.

saw 1. I guess if ya want to carry in the coat. Personally, I find the pocket to ride too far out for me, and the gun is off body if you take it off. The contruction seems good. The design is nice. The price I saw was near $100.

Ditto: Euc...but,

Let me see if I can find their web page and I'll see if there is anything ULTRA special about it that makes it worth EITHER $129.00 or $60.00 ~ I honestly don't know at this point in time.

Potentially useful - for some folks maybe.

I'll still stick to usual rig and front of whatever I am wearing not done up - reckon my draw will be faster that way than from a jacket. Tho - maybe possible to have hand on gun early but, chances are that might look same as reaching to a sho rig, which in fact I'd prefer too as another (secondary) option this time of year.

OK From The SIG Site

And their price is $99.00 & not $129.00 like that bull$hitter on Ebay stated.

"This sturdy, yet stylish, coat has been tailored for everyday wear. Its made of 100% heavy weight cotton canvas and is set off by a smooth nubuck leather collar. Lined with 300 gram anti-pill fleece and lightly garment washed, this coat keeps you warm while allowing for easy movement. SigTac® added ambidextrous internal pistol pockets for concealed carry to keep you on guard. Color: Tobacco Brown. Sizes S to XXXL. NOTE ON SIZING: This jacket is a full cut from the factory and you may want to consider a size down if your usual size is roomy."

And this does not seem like it's much more than a heavy shirt w/ a fleece:sheep: lining.

It has gotten some good reviews over on the SIG forum. They have also said it runs large (buy one size smaller).

That jacket will conceal a full size 1911. I bought the denim jacket version. Both are offered at www.magills.com.
I can conceal my USP full size, Browning Hi Power, or 1911 in the pocket of the jacket and no one can tell.
It has an elastic holster in the pocket that holds the gun securely into place. The pockets on the denim jacket then zip shut. There is also a 2nd denim pocket between the holster and the outer layer of denim that will hold maps or gloves, and give an extra layer of concealment. I love mine.

This might be something for a motorcycle rider to consider. You can put the weapon in the right side pocket for a left handed draw, which is needed when your right hand is on the right handle accelerator. Something to think about.

I wish they would make one in a polar fleece-lined nylon jacket in a dark color....

Check out 5.11 coats, they are pricey though.

You gotta point OG but - when I am biking I still would not want to draw and fire on the move - if it occurred I'd reckon I was in for a whole lotta hurt!!!

I usually carry same as normal but as soon as off the bike, vest is undone at front - or leather jacket too if that is on.

Has struck me that perhaps a tank bag with velcro'd top pocket with flap might be about quickest for access but then the prob of transfer of gun to self when leaving bike.

I got a cheap fix for you. Go to your nearest Army Navy store and see if you can get yourself a Gortex Parka. The parka has two pockets you can use. I always pack my CCW in my old military parka.You could also check some surplus stores.

The whole carrying while on the scoot is a question I have not answered to my satisfaction.

I am right handed and the throttle on the right handle, I would have to carry and prepare to draw left handed while on the scoot (or get one of those vintage Indians w throttle on the left hanldebar (drool, drool, drool!!!) and carry strongside. Even so, then I have to be concerned if the metal slide of the gun smacks against my pelvis or other bone in an unplanned getoff. Or a tankbag and figure outta way to discreetlly transfer to my "person" once I dismount the bike.

Anyone gotta great solution, I'm all ears. Until then, it's strong side, inside the waistband for me. W/ a plan to never fire while riding the scoot (even though I could pull if off w/ the crusie control). Voluntary or involuntary dismount first.

That is, unless I am going where 100% concealament is mandatory, then it's a pocket 38 special.

Not a biker but So forgive it it seems stupid..

But what about a shoulder holster
or a bag on the belt granted not the best looking thing you can wear but it would work i think

how about crossdraw? Harder to conceal, but seems you could draw weak hand , if need be.
