I pack mine on a Simply Rugged pancake with a Chesty Puller chest rig while fishing or riding motorcycle/ranger. On a belt holster while hiking. Though it's no featherweight it is a heckuva lot better than the 500 S&W I got rid of to buy it.
That 500 S&W was so unwieldy you may as well have a rifle. The SRH Alaskan is a good balance of power and portability.
