Holster wrap.

Has anyone tried one of these and is it all it's cracked up to be? I'm thinking about getting one.

I've seen wraps like that before , was thinking of it also . I have lower back problems every so often , went to a shoulder rig for those times the wrap could work two fold as a little back support and holster , may give one a try .

A friend of mine tried one that is similar and he have to coordinate it to his regular pants/belt. He got too tight and pants started sipping down. It did give him great back support. …..

Be Safe !!!

How does the guy keep his pants up without a belt? Where does he carry his Swiss Army knife?
It looks like somebody added a holster to their back support belt. Couldn't imagine anything less comfortable or being more unsuitable as a gun belt. Too loose and floppy.

That's basically all it is is a back support with a holster , if it stays flat against your body its another way to carry concealed . Better then not carrying at all , if it works like advertised , comfortable and secured I'll use one . I ordered the comfort tac today and will let you know what I think after giving it a test.

Belly bands are great if you need to wear gym shorts, sweat pants, or even deep conceal where you can not have anything external show at all. Could also be an option for a BUG.

My concerns with them are safety. How well does it secure the firearm from falling out? How well does it protect the trigger from accidental discharge? Don't be that person on the news who dropped their gun or had an ND in a public place. A holster is not a good place to save a few bucks and go cheap.

I have a Modular Belly Band from Crossbreed. This uses a kydex holster 'module' that attaches with velcro to the band, which then also wraps over the holster module to further secure it. The kydex holster holds the gun securely and the trigger is protected. Of course it's adaptable for different guns with additional holster modules.

I think Crossbreed's belly band is a good solution to the above problems, very safe and fairly comfortable. You do have to make it fit tight and it does get hot since it wraps all the way around you. It's not as comfortable as a regular belt holster so it is not my primary method of carry. It also works best with a light handgun. I only use it with my S&W Shield or my alloy frame J-frame revolver.

I have been using the belly band holster and surprisingly I like it alot . It carries my 3" 1911 with no wobble , it's not for any quick drawing but for concealment . I would recommend this holster . The one size fits all works better for my 1911 and the waist size band has a different snap works better for a j frame snub revolver . All depends on the stitching and snap . Hope this helps .
