Come along with me as I run with my Smith & Wesson Shield .45ACP in my ComfortTac Ultimate Belly Band Gun Holster for Concealed Carry.
For the longest time I searched for the one holster that would fit the summertime dress code. Gym shorts, running shorts, cargo shorts, the list goes on when temperatures rise above the comfort level of pants. And that's where most concealed carriers struggle when trying to conceal their firearm. Until now, I simply couldn't find a comfortable way to securely carry my firearm while wearing my gym shorts. Trying to exercise and run while concealing was pretty much impossible. The ComfortTac conceal carry belt changed that for me.

The ComfortTac Ultimate Belly Band Gun Holster for Concealed Carry is truly a "one size fits all" band that's made of neoprene. It's adjustable, stretches to fit up to a 44" belly, and is soft and comfortable enough to wear directly against your skin. It's also unisex so both men and women can wear it.
What's it made of?
The holster is made of surgical-grade elastic. My Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 Shield .45ACP fits nicely and is held securely. To further test the "one size fits all" I tested my full-sized M&P 2.0 9MM and full-sized M&P 2.0 45ACP and was pleased that the holster held those securely in place. The holster is designed for subcompact, compact, full-size pistols, and revolvers. The built-in retention strap works with the holster to the firearm in place.
Inside and outside the waistband
I wear this holster inside of my waistband (IWB), and sometimes outside of the waistband (OWB). I found that drawing from the appendix position, 7 o'clock position (left-handed), and under-arm position could be done with ease and comfort. The ComfortTac is available in both right and left-hand models. I shoot primarily left-handed so I went with the left-hand model.

The removable magazine pouch works very well in keeping my magazine in place. Things bounce around quite a bit while running and exercising and I found peace of mind while doing so that I wasn't going to lose my spare ammo.
The elastic pouch is good for carrying small EDC items such as ID cards, bank cards, flashlights, small first aid kits, cash, and even a small knife. I have on occasion put my phone in the pouch while walking, but this isn't something that I do often because I feel like the phone prints too much.
