    Now that winter is only a few weeks away in the Last Frontier, that means snowboots and knee length coats. I currently use the belly band for concealed carry, but that’s not going to work when I’m all bundled up with 2 or 3 layers of clothing. What would you suggest as a holster for my S&W 380EZ, with or without mounted light?

    1. Carrie Lightfoot says:

      Yes, it’s a bit tougher to get to your gun with all of the extra clothing worn in the winter. Outside of a pocket holster in your coat pocket, A waist pack could work or OWB. You could even consider wearing an IWB holster clipped inside your boot!

    I recently purchased the belly band from TWAW and I LOVE it!!! It’s very comfortable, I don’t even know I have it on. There are other makers of belly band but none are as comfortable. The material is very soft and there is the added zipper pouch for money , credit cards and other important papers, it come in 3 sizes, I ordered a size A I have a 36″ waist and I could make it smaller, but I’ll wear it for awhile before i do. Very well made you won’t be disappointed with it, I highly recommend,

  3. Anna Littlr says:

    I would like to see the pictures better. And to know what holster is used. I’m “fluffy” and it’s harder to conceal.

    1. Carrie Lightfoot says:

      Hi Anna! The holster is noted under each image so that should help you out. I am sorry you are having trouble viewing the images. It is much easier to see them if you use a computer or a tablet.

  4. Anne Davis says:

    This is great. I am a new CCW woman and this info is welcomed. Thank you in advance for all the experienced women who will submit their ideas and photos.

    Thank you.

    1. Malena says:

      Amen! I’m plus size, and it’s a challenge. My fluff already makes lumps!

      1. Jodi says:

        Me too! And to add to this fluff Problem I happen to live in 115• temps making “conceal” a real challenge. And I would prefer to cary my 9.
