How comfortable is your holster? 9mm compact. Maybe Sig p365,or Glock sub compact.

I use an Alien Gear inside the waistband holster custom made for my M&P 9mm performance series shield. It's very comfortable and holds the gun securely. Takes forever to ship, but it was worth the time and money.

I need to lose a few pounds, to be comfortable. I can't stand wearing a belt or having much more than a card type wallet. Before my accident at work, I wore a 32" waist and a belt 🙃. Slowly getting back into shape!? Yeah! Not so easy! I know there are plenty of options, just have to go try them on,like a new pair of shoes. Thanks.

I use the Alien Gear, I use carry in the small of back or on waist(when in Kayak). Thing that really improved the comfortably was getting a good belt, a belt made to carry. I use Hanks belts.

I'm in the same boat as you after getting hurt at work. I didn't want to go with an IWB holster because of it but the hidden hybrid can be worn in or out I believe the alien wear one can as well

Have to have a belt real tight to keep the pants where they need to be (no butt) :LOL: I prefer a pocket holster in the summer (lcp) and even the Sig or hammerless 38(more for winter coat pocket) never needs to be shown to function (real close range) a few options depending on time of year

This is something that I would have get used to. And, yes a good belt is a must. I have been checking out the belt loops on pants before I make a decision. I stopped buying cheap pants after my accident, because I have to pay to have the hem shorter. I am shrinking!! I need a 29"inseam. And at $12/14. Per pair to have them hemmed I can wear quality longer. But a lot of pants have the crotch hanging half way down to your knees 😱!

Check out the comfort tac belly holsters. I use one in the summer and it works great when wearing light cloths. They are very comfortable. Cold weather I just use an owb with a light jacket that I keep on all day.

For those of you wanting a pocket holster for a SIG P365, you may want to check this out:


I ordered mine last week but am still waiting on it....which is fine. Each piece is made to order.

I saw Hickock45 using these during his reviews of the P365 and was impressed.

He's apparently gone P365 for his EDC....in case that matters at all.

The only thing that goes in my front pocket is money. Wallet with ID in back pocket. But a good way to fool someone wanting your money 💰. We had an older guy at work that didn't drive, and he would catch a ride with the other guys, and swap them beer at every bar on the way home. You couldn't drink a beer faster than him! He always bought...and you were always drunk after the third bar!! He kept a huge wad of one's in one pocket, and hundreds in the other, he. Said, if he was robbed, he would gladly give up a bunch of one's. I know that I wouldn't want to try it out, even if I didn't know him.
Big and tough, old steel worker. They took care of their own.
I tried out my friend's inside waist holster, custom made and really comfy! His brother made it, since he retired and his wife passed, he needed something to do. Nice hobby! I have a tanned Bison hide, that's about 36"×30". He said he would make a couple for the four of us. He uses a mix of items. He has a kydex forming press. Gets the scraps from an air brake shop .

My wallet is in my front pocket since the chiropractor knew exactly how thick it was , from how far my hip was out of alien.... the only time it's not there is when replaced with a gun .... constantly sitting on it will push your hip that far out
That belly band I have considered

My brother drove semi trucks with a big fat wallet. Now he walks funny and whines all the time. I keep asking him if he wants any cheese :giggle:.

What has appeal for many people is the ability to take a micro-compact, like a SIG P365 or a Springfield Hellcat, place it in a pocket holster......and then carry it in one of your front pockets while wearing cargo shorts or even kaki pants....or whatever you want to call the later.
