A favorite holster for women who carry. The Pistol Pouch is a comfortable cotton pouch-style holster. Made for The Well Armed Woman by Thunderwear.

See drawing, sizing and more details in the description below!




The Well Armed Woman Pistol Pouch by Thunderwear was designed by a wearer, for a wearer. It provides a stable platform for the most comfortable, concealed carry possible. We anchor the weight around the hipbones, (not on the soft tissue of your waist). This distributes the weight of your firearm (and the tactical reload) evenly around the hips at the center of gravity. The firearm is worn in the front, on the centerline. This way it will not interfere with normal or rigorous physical activity, such as running or climbing comfortable. When you sit down, the firearm fits down in between your legs. “Sensitive” body parts are well out the way of the firearm. Worn on top of the underwear, under the pants or skirt.

These holsters are 100% Made In The USA by our own design (U.S. Patent # DES. 361,656) , manufactured using the most durable, machine-washable materials, and are worn proudly by everyone who knows what REAL Thunderwear is, including veterans of the armed forces, off-duty and on-duty police officers, and individuals who just prefer to wear the best! Made from cotton with 5 moisture barrier layers.

    FABULOUS holster!!! Gun is virtually invisible, and holster with gun & spare mag is unbelievably comfortable when worn all-day long. Works great with low or high rise jeans and sweats/jogging pants (haven’t had need to wear dress pants yet). It completely eliminates the “bathroom dilemma.” While I am tall and thin, I need to firm up my lower abdomen and this holster is motivating me to do so because that will enable the gun disappear even more! 🙂

    I just received mine today and LOVE IT!!!! I have been searching for a holster for my SCYY CPX2 with a red dot and my Springfield XDS with a red dot. Both guns fit in this holster with no problem! I also have a Glock 43x that fits in there great! I love it that I now have one holster for all three of my favorite guns! Thank you so much TWAW!!!!!

    So far so good. I love it. It’s comfortable and conceals very well. I like that it’s not tight. I’ll have to practice my draw at the range, but it is not going be a problem at all. I like it better than my hip hoslter because it feels more secure.

    So far this IS my favorite holster. I carry the S&W 380EZ and the barrel is close to 4”. I’m 5’4, short wasted, about 145 lbs slimmer in the waste and rounder at the hips, butt, & thighs. I’m right handed and prefer a cross draw. I carry appendix and slightly to the left. I find, the due to the thickness of the grip and barrel length, my gun it seems to print regardless of what holster I use and where I carry. Belly bands are too wide, they push the grip into my “boobs” and the barrel into my lower belly when sitting. My kydex holster at the 3 o’clock position or appendix pushes the grip into my ribs and barrel into my thigh when sitting. The pistol pouch is the most comfortable. Since I’m short wasted, I have to position it to the left just so, so that when sitting the barrel doesn’t push into my pelvic bone. I choose the one with the “medium” sized pocket. This pistol pouch is by far the most comfortable and I use it everyday. I say all this because surely there are others who have these same dilemmas!! If I could make a change I would like to see one offering one gun pocket instead of two. Because of my smaller waist I tuck the 2nd pocket under the other which maes it a bit bulky. The band is secure and comfy! Again because of my shape, and lets face it women have curves, it would be 100% better if the band was curved. I don’t wear a belt so I find the back of the band has a tendency to ride up above the waste of my jeans. Taking all into consideration I highly recommend this. My gun is secure and held close to me, and the security strap doesn’t affect the fact that my safety is part of my grip therefore I feel I’m safely carrying. I now have a collection of new, barely used holsters & belly bands in my effort to find the best for me and this pistol pouch, so far is “the one”!

    I love my pistol pouch. I have a black one and I’ve had it at least six years. My .38 Special fits well. I’m not skinny or thin at all. I wear it just below my belly button with my jeans or other outfits. It’s my most comfortable holder and I have several other kinds. No one knows I’m carrying. It conceals well and doesn’t make me have a big paunch/stomach.

    I absolutely LOVE The Well Armed Woman Pistol pouch. It is so comfortable. I wear it when I wear anything from sweat pants to dress slacks. I slide it a little off centered and it lays flat. I use it for my Glock 43 and use the extra pouch to carry two extra magazines. I highly recommend it.

    Hands down the best and easiest holster I’ve tried. The morning I got it, I tried it out right away with my (unloaded) semi-auto. I practiced a few draws then went about my day at home. I honestly forgot I had it on — it’s that comfortable and easy. Even tucking my legs under me on the couch, I didn’t even notice it.

    Living in AZ, I wear shorts almost all the time. I have a sticky holster which I like for long jeans, but the sticky holster tends to pull my shorts down and I’m frequently having to adjust it (not to mention the bathroom difficulty). I also have a flashbang, which is easier to draw but doesn’t work well for me unless I don’t sit down. Any time I sit, my pistol pushes out horizontally. I have to hold it down while sitting which looks rather awkward. The flashbang is also hot to wear on an area of my body that tends to get sweaty anyway in our AZ heat, and only works with some of my bras. I’ve stopped using it altogether.

    This pistol pouch holster finally gives me the comfort and ease to allow me to carry all day on my person. I place it offset from center otherwise, depending on the snugness of my shorts, it may look like I have a male body part. Before I got this holster, I kept to purse carrying despite the inherent disadvantages of doing so. Now I can comfortably carry whether I’m home or out. The only time I can’t seem to wear it is with my more form-fitting dresses or skirts.

    Absolutely love this holster!

    This isn’t my all time FAVORITE holster! I am 5’6” 145 lbs, size 8 in the pants. I got the regular in the band and small in holster and I can completely conceal my sig p238. It’s so comfortable, I don’t even know it’s there!

  10. Colleen

    My husband got me this holster for Christmas, and I absolutely love it!! It’s comfortable and I don’t have to worry about where to place my gun when going to the bathroom. I would absolutely buy this again!

  11. Michelle

    So far, this my my favorite holster! It’s comfortable and you can wear it with anything; however, I have to make sure I wear a shirt loose enough to cover past my waist because there is a slight bulge in the front of your pants. I have the flashbang holster and love it too but sometimes it tends to slide around on my bra and bug me. I also have the IWB holster but like this pistol pouch much better. I highly recommend this holster!!

  12. S. G.

    I’m very happy with this holster (although my favorite is the Flash Bang). It keeps things secure, and I can wear it with pants or skirts. Although, I would recommend wearing pants in a size larger than you usually wear while using this holster. If you don’t wear a pant size up, your pants might be slightly distorted in the crotch area, but not enough to really draw attention if you have small cc.

    I carry a Sig 938 and often wear Yoga pants or jeans with no belt and we all no how difficult and awkward that is. I often feel like my weapon is flopping around no matter what holster I use…I saw this and thought it looked ridiculous but why not try it and I HAVE NEVER HAD A MORE COMFORTABLE CARRY!! The weight distribution is low- right on the pubic bone area; I sling it low on purpose- over my underwear and under super tight fitting yoga pants. Because of this the left pocket is too ’long’ so I tuck it under a bit- need to alter it to be shorter—and also need to stitch Velcro on the top of the left pocket to keep it closed as in NC we need to carry CCW permit and pic ID/license and it slides out of the empty/unhosltered side.
    This is the best and most secure my forearm has felt ever—ease of holstering is great- fits well- easy access and deep concealment- I can wear a longer( but not butt covering), but only needs to be slightly loose- not baggy.

    This is easily my favorite holster. I tried the belly band, too hot. I don’t want one that needs a belt. I tried this one and I LOVE it. I have to order another so I can wash this one and still have a holster. You can wear it with pants and skirts. No need for a belt. It’s comfortable. I actually wear mine just a little off center. I keep my conceal carry permit and a spare mag in the second pocket. A strap there would be really nice but I love this holster. It’s so comfortable I forget I’m wearing it. Like others have said, reholstering is something you need to pay close attention to. On the other hand, drawing is really easy.

  15. Suzette

    I’m about to order my second one of these so I can wash one and have the other available. I’m afraid I’m one of those who perspires quickly. This is so comfortable sometimes I forget it’s there. My Glock 43 fits in it nicely and in the second pouch I keep a magazine and my conceal carry permit. It would be nice if there were a velcro strap to go over the pouches (kind of like are built into the belly band models) so things would stay put in the second pouch. My permit has a tendency to “walk” out of the holster if I don’t make sure that side is below the belt. Other than that I love it. It’s cooler to wear than the belly band and actually more comfortable.

  16. Vicky

    I’ve had this holster for a year or more and am using it with a Keltec 380.
    At first I wore it in front per design and description. But now I rotate it so gun is at 4 o’clock and the butt just protrudes above waistband. Black gun in black holster against black tank. It’s virtually invisible! And comfortable. I’ve done ten hour drives without problem.
    And I love that I don’t have to fumble with my gun when using the bathroom. I’ll never leave it on the back of the tank, and no weight trying to slip of a belt.

    I live in Florida and this is about as lightweight and cool a way to carry as one can hope for.

    I’m here today to buy a second one, this time for a Glock 26. I’ll let you know how that goes.

  17. Susan LePage

    I absolutely love this holster and its super comfortable. I wear it under skirts, pants and dresses although I have a flash bang and thigh holster, I keep going back to this one. I carry a 357 revolver and it doesn’t move around at all. It’s so comfortable you’ll forget you have it on.

  18. Donna

    First, ordering easy, follow up communication via email as well as shipping was timely. I am very satisfied with this product. Sizing was appropriate. The holster is very comfortable. What is surprising is that I have a very small stature and how the holster truly conceals my weapon. I am glad I ordered black to blend in with most things. It is also comfortable in a sitting position. I have a “sticky” which I like except that when using the rest room I have to either stick my weapon in my purse on sit it somewhere. With this holster I don’t have to worry about it. Very nice product. Can easily draw from the pouch. Agree with other reviews depending on the weapon may need two hands to re-holster but it is no big deal.

  19. Sam

    I love that you can use this holster with anything you’re wearing. I can carry appendix or kidney easily. I use this when wearing skirts, but can change to jeans or leggings without having to change holsters. Now I don’t have to worry about what I wear when im carrying, because I can wear this with any type of clothing! The fabric doesn’t feel flimsy at all. It comes with two pockets for righties/lefties or if you carry an extra mag or dual carry. Re-holstering is the only issue because it is fabric and not stiff so you have to wiggle the muzzle in or use a hand or finger to open it first. Not a big deal.

  20. Sheri Bilderback

    This is my favorite, go to holster. It works with skirts for work; I can change clothes and wear it under jeans/pants without switching holsters. I don’t like tight things around my waist, but it sits on the hips, which is awesome! It stays put and does not show. I have IWB holsters that work great with jeans, but donÂ’t work well with skirts/work pants. I have an OWB that I love from TWAW, but it doesn’t work with a lot of clothes. I have the flash bang but it keeps popping out, printing and makes me adjust all the time so I quit wearing it, even though it’s easy to draw. I like my thigh holster, but if I switch from a short skirt to jeans, I have to switch holsters, and harder to draw. With this one, I can just go from morning to night without worrying about what I’m wearing as it works with everything. It takes two hands to re-holster because I have to pull out the fabric on the holster with my other hand, so that is something to be aware of/cautious about. Drawing works great.
