    I like the way the front drops down into a shelf. That could be handy for changing flies / lures when fishing.

    Can the front panel behind the drop down "shelf" hold spare mags ?

    Personally I prefer belt carry for sidearm & mags.

    I like the concept but would have try it out myself to see if it would work for me.

    Keeping a conceal gun in a zipped up chest pouch seems like a horrible idea. That's more poor planning than an inherent flaw in the bag.

    I need "concealed carry for fat woman" merchandise, lol. At home I can carry however I want. But on occasion I have to go places I want to carry and then I'm not comfortable. I hate HATE belts. They're uncomfortable, they bind and dig in. This chick wants to know whats most comfortable who are carrying weight in the torso area???

    Have you tried an "Under Arm Shoulder Holster" that can be covered by a light Jacket? this is what I use, with my Browning HiPower.....

    The Mrs also like to use a Galco Miami classic shoulder holster for her S&W1911PD
    If you'd prefer an over the shoulder boulder holder holster then I'll just leave this here.[tongue]


    No, I don't use one but the Mrs does. (KelTec P3AT) What you can conceal depends what you want to carry and on how well... Oh just clicky and watch the video. It's also available on Amazon and there's a convenient "A shop" icon above where you purchase can benefit the forum.[coo]

    Wrong, I have used mine extensively while carrying, both a Ruck, and my Old Kelty Pack. It Hangs down lower than the shoulder strap, which goes back just under my Armpit. The Belly Band takes all most of the weight off the shoulder straps, so they are just to keep the pack close to my back. Momma prefers to use a Thigh Carry for her Dan Wesson .357....
