Both pistol sling bags & thigh bags include a dedicated compartment only for your handgun. A handgun is attached to a wall of the bag using velcro panels & holsters. Your handgun is not only well concealed but also protected against bad weather conditions & falls.


Draw String Bags - How to Draw

Now you are asking: OK, but it is zippered in there, right? How can I ever react to a danger fast? The answer is simple. Your handgun is always ready to be used fast, thanks to the draw strings dedicated for the rapid opening. You will simply pull it outwards from your body with a weaker hand & reach for a gun with a strong hand. The process is very similar to pulling your shirt & drawing when you AIWB carry. Based on my personal experience, you would need some practice with it.

Try the draw in front of the mirror a few times, but this is the same with all the carry methods. With proper training, you will be able to draw from them as fast as with conventional carry methods.

Enough of general information. Now we are going to look at all the small details & wearing tips, so you can make a well-informed decision.


Concealed Carry Chest Bag

You can find tactical chest bags or everyday gun sling bags, smaller ones, and bigger ones. Size & number of compartments is crucial but in the end up to you. Check the items you are carrying on a daily basis & make sure you are picking a bag that has enough space & compartments. I decided to opt for the best concealed carry sling bag G122. It is an absolute best-seller and I will clear out why. Apart from the ample space this sling holster also offers a MOLLE panel on the front. It allows you to attach gear such as knife pouches or med kits. Because it is made of special ballistic material it does not straight away give out you carry a gun. 

Concealability is also enhanced via the various color options. Do you want it to look like a casual bag? Just opt for the blue, grey-toned, or other color options that fit your style. It can be worn on your back, chest, or even as a fanny pack. However, the feature I appreciate the most is its size & ergonomics. It is not too small and also not too big. I find it just right for a daily carry. The strap that holds the whole concealed carry chest pack is padded and angled exceptionally well. After two years with this bag, I am still 100% certain that off-body on the chest is the best option I could have picked for warmer months.

  2. Take the sling holster off and fill all the compartments with daily items.
  3. Take the included elastic holster out of the bag. Open its Velcro closure and wrap it around your handgun so it covers the trigger guard. In case you dont like this universal solution you can find nylon or Kydex velcro holsters as well ass IWB holster holders in the offer.

Drop Leg Bag

Leg bags for concealed carry are vastly different from chest bags. They are worn on your tight and this fact opens them to a completely new set of advantages. Because your handgun is positioned right next to your strong hand the draw is even better than with the best CCW sling bag. You can either open the gun compartment with your strong hand or weak hand reaching across your body. This is optional, but the fact is you would have your handgun ready for use fast & easy. It also includes multiple compartments for your daily items and to me, this was again just the right amount of space. I used a G113 drop-leg bag, however, the G213 is identical when it comes to space just less separated. It is attached to your leg thanks to the nylon strap & padded nylon belt that both close & open with the polymer fork buckle.

 To be honest it will make you look a bit like Lara Croft and in some situations, this carry method might be odd. For example - You wouldn't appear at your sister's wedding wearing it. Right? Right? No, tactical leg bags were created for completely different scenarios. They excel while bike riding, hiking, motorcycle riding, or basically while doing activities when your hip or chest should be clear of items, but you still need excellent solution for concealed carry. Motorcycle leg bags are quite common and if you get it made in one of the less screaming colors it will blend in without concerns from the bystanders. Our concealed carry leg bags are also popular amongst female gun enthusiasts. We have reports of them being used during morning runs, while horse riding, but also as everyday carry bags. Everything depends on your lifestyle and how it blends with your wardrobe. I use G113 for riding activities & I am sure it will work flawlessly for you too.
