OK my first post and hopefully I won't get too flamed for it being about "fanny packs". I have read all the "screams gun" responses but they do have their niche which is why I am asking for opinions and experiences. I need something for use while hiking, backpacking, and those occasions where I want a little more firepower. I have purchased a Safepacker and it is out of the question. For a gun of any size it's like attaching a Samsonite suitcase to your waist. I am interested in feedback on three models of waist packs. They are the Galco Escort pack, Blackhawk 5-5-10, and the Ka-Bar TDI Waist Pack. Comments about the ability to hold a larger firearm and spare magazine for a S & W M & P 357 Sig full size. Also some additional storage for id, licenses, money, etc. The Blackhawk appears like it is too big but I've not strapped one on. Has anyone tried the Kabar with a full sized weapon? This is not my primary carry method but one that I will use semi-frequently as I do alot of hiking. Frankly I'm not concerned about it appearing to be a gun pack in most cases it will never be seen by other people except for a few people along the trails. Most of them are usually packing in some method also.
