It’s asked time and time again, “What leggings are good for concealed carrying?”
You’ll find a smattering of posts throughout my website referring to leggings I recommend (or don’t) for concealed carry. But I figured since this is such a hot topic, why not have everything in one place?
I encourage you to bookmark or save this page… I will be updating as I find more brands that are good for carrying!
So first… What to look for?
You’ll need something with a strong waistband, that doesn’t sag or flop outward with the weight of a holster attached directly to it.
Got a closet full of leggings that aren’t up to the task? Let me stop you right here — if you’re not looking to buy a whole new wardrobe to be able to carry in leggings, a belly band is a great option. I swear by my ComfortTac one. It’s the first holster I ever bought, and it’s still my most-used one. It not only works with leggings, but also with jeans, sweatpants, skirts, literally anything. It just prevents you from having to clip a holster onto your waistband, and gives you another really versatile option. Check it out here: https://amzn.to/36xg4lZ I do earn a small commission on a purchase made through this link — but I can assure you there’s no BS about my love for this holster; I share it all the time because I am a huge fan and would recommend it to anyone.
I also would very highly recommend a fabriclip, which you’ll see in many of my photos. Once it’s clipped onto your pants, it’s very secure and not going anywhere. It’s also great because you don’t have to worry about it making a hole in your pants like you would a metal clip. I own a holster from Southern Bullets which came with the fabriclip attached. But if you own a holster and want to swap out the clip for one, Southern Bullets does also sell them by themselves. Great brand, great service, 100% recommend.
ANYWAY! Back to the leggings. I will keep this page going as I find new brands of leggings that work (or don’t). Don’t forget to save this page, stick it on your Pinterest, or wherever! Feel free to share with others who are in the same search for leggings for concealed carrying.
