Concealed Carry Clothing for the Outdoors
As more and more civilians begin to carry concealed, retailers are starting to make concealed carry outerwear to accommodate that market.
Yet despite the eight million supporters of carrying, you can still understand how difficult it can be to find appropriate and functional outerwear.
The Conceal Carry Jacket by Rivers West is made of high-quality fleece. When purchasing a jacket for to wear while carrying, you want to be sure you choose something durable.
The Conceal Carry Jacket is not only waterproof, but is also windproof so you will be able to endure any kind of harsh weather.
You also can’t go wrong with the waterproof guarantee and 10-year unbreakable warranty that comes with purchase.
Wondering how the jacket carries? There is a holster rig securely attached to the jacket in the crossdraw position.
Rivers West also offers two versions of the same jacket to accommodate both right-handed and left-handed carriers. The holster has a flexible pocket and a retention strap made of Velcro.
Better yet, the product includes the semi-rigid “conceal plate” that conceals any printing, making it virtually impossible for anyone to detect a concealed weapon.
In his article “Rivers West Conceal Carry Jacket” on USConcealedcarry.com, author Duane A. Daiker evaluates the function and durability of the Conceal Carry Jacket:
“I found the jacket to work very well. The holster provides adequate stability, and the conceal-plate does exactly what it is supposed to do. The jacket needs to be zipped, at least partially, to ensure the handgun is concealed. Having the jacket closed also helps distribute the weight of the gun across the shoulders, making for a more comfortable carry experience. Overall, concealment is very good so long as you can wear the jacket at least partially closed. (Read more about the Concealed Carry Jacket here)”
When you go to access your weapon, it may be a bit slower than you are accustomed to, but a jacket is never going to be quiet or as quick as a belt or other type of holster. Because of this, you’ll want to practice drawing before actually wearing the jacket and carrying your weapon, but practice makes perfect.
Another great thing about the Rivers West Conceal Carry Jacket is that it can accommodate a number of different handguns, both large and small. Are you looking for a jacket that comes in something other than black?
