    Belly Band Carry via ComfortTac

    Never tried a belly band type CCW. Someone loaned me one to try and what I thought a gimmick is not. It's really comfortable and secure. This one made by ComfortTac and I found a review vid that I agreed with and posted below. My Shield and extra mag was as the most comfortable and easy to conceal set up I have ever used and very secure. No, it's not lighting fast on the draw, but fast enough, and re holstering a bit of a chore, but I can see this being one tool in the tool box of options for concealment.

    Only one major drawback that will prevent me from using, and that's heat. I run hot and will sweat quickly. While it would be the perfect option for light shirts and T shirt and such in hot weather, I'd sweat my head off wit that on. I can see using it in cooler weather, at the gym (where i expect to sweat) and so forth. If you don't run hot as I do, may be a great summer option. It is perferated and can be washed, so even of sweaty, not the end of the world.

    My loaner suggests I may get one. Lots of others on the market to consider, that's the one I can vouch for.

    Looks promising.

    While not my choice for EDC, I can see plenty of uses. With a sub compact like a Shield, even a normal fitting dark colored T shirt works. Most surprising how dang comfortable it was.

    Unfortunately, discomfort carrying in the heat is a major issue for me, too. I just got back from a "fence run" at the ranch and I literally wore my undershirt and my Glock 17 in open carry. I can't see wearing one of those sweatband type holsters in the way it was intended. I keep watching the video seeing how it's handy and works really well for light clothing--but dang--I don't know if it creates problems of its own.

    Has it got some clinginess/rigidity to it? Tried one of the old school Ace bandage ones with a G17 and by the time it required being very tight to prevent rollover or slipping.

    Looks decent. Dude needs to stop covering his weak hand when re-holstering, lest he plugs himself someday.

    I have the pistolwear version. Trick is to order smaller holster size than they recommend. I bought a larger one and the gun gets swallowed up by the holster. Bought the smallest one and wear it with a j frame and extra speed strip for runs. It hides under basketball shorts and keeps the gun sweat free. Love it and is less bulky than a kydex or leather holster. I cut the small retension strap with the magnet off as it does nothing and gets in the way of a quicker draw. The tension of the neoprene holds the holster in place nicely. They offer a 10% LEO/MIL discount.

    Can't be compared to an ace bandage, it seems to stay where needed and holds gun well per vid, even if running, etc.

    Leave dud a message on his channel as good Samaritan perhaps.

    This one seems more universal type and fit a Shield and a VP9 well. Smaller or larger, I can't comment. At $20 a pop, hard to go wrong really. Their Amazon page:
