    Default Conceal leather vest for bikers

    Anyone wear a conceal leather vest? I wear my SA XD 40 SC on my belt when I ride but I am considering a vest. Anyone use a vest and how do you like it? Does it balance the weight well?

    I've thought about the same thing and I think I posted about this a while ago. I moved to AZ since then and we can open carry here. Most guys I know hip carry and sometimes it's concealed, sometimes it isn't, depending on whether or not they have their jacket on. I've been thinking of a cross draw or may be doing a hip/side holster too.

    I carry on my hip. As I've stated before, I carry the same way, the same place at all times. Muscle memory kicks in during a time of need and I don't want to be trying to remember how to remove my firearm from a new location.

    I am not a big fan of anything in the pockets in the chest area while riding. In the event of a crash, last place I want the firearm is slamming into my chest and/or bouncing around. Feel confident my IWB will keep it secure at all times.

    Just my humble opinion though.

    The only thing I use the vest for is to cover the grip in my Inside the Waistband (IWB) holster. The weight makes the vest sag on one side, and the draw is more difficult. I agree the "muscle memory is important. Losing seconds when you need them while you search for your weapon isn't acceptable. I also agree that if I go down for some reason, I'd rather bruise my hip than damage ribs or sternum. I can survive a hip injury way easier than puncturing a lung or suffering heart damage!

    My vote is for Coronado Leather products. I have one and I and I can tell you they're not inexpensive but they are high quality. The vests are made specifically for concealed carry and they do a great job of it. There are a number of styles available and are worth cheecking out Jackets & Vests

    This may or may not be what you are looking for, but check out Kakadu.
    I was talking to one of the owners the other day and looking at their line of concealed carry clothing. Very well made and functional.

    I'll add my two cents. I carried forever in a Coronado concealment vest. I carried Kahr P40's. If there was only one carried on in the left inner pocket, I was constantly pulling down on the right side to even it out. But my solution was to carry my second P40 in the right side. Definitely needs counter balance. Secondly, I had a motorcycle accident last October and came down on my left side. Broken rib right about where the gun would ride in the pocket. I believe my arm was along my side also, judging by the road rash, but don't remember feeling it there. I believe if the gun weren't there I wouldn't have broken the rib. Not faulting the vest, but I never thought of that and happily wore the vest and carried as designed. I don't how to avoid this happening. Any way something for you to consider. Be careful out there.

    I have never worn one riding but I recently tried one on from concealedcarryoutfitters.com that is made from oilskin. It has dual cross draw holsters and an internal liner designed like a shoulder holster. With a full weight .45, there was no sag. I really liked it a lot. And it's water proof too.
